USLS @ 60: The Journey Continues-A A +A
Saturday, July 7, 2012
AT AGE 60, the human body will have lost about half of its taste buds, perhaps half of its hair, and possibly half of its memory. But while 60 is the age where the human body is ready to retire, an institution at 60 is still making its history; and unlike the deterioration it has brought to the human body, time has only made this institution better and brighter.
The University of St. La Salle remains a shining example of academic excellence in the province and in the region. For sixty years, USLS has sustained in its mission to bring quality Christian education, and to the present it continues to teach minds, touch hearts and transform lives.
As Brother President and Chancellor Raymundo Suplido said in his welcome speech during the Honoring Rites for the Golden Jubilarians, La Salle is not just buildings. While the university prides itself in being the “university of the future” in the present, the honor of the university is not limited to its facilities and its structures. La Salle is made up of its people: those in the past, the present and the future.
The university has come far and the direction it moves in is ever forward. From an all-male school, the former college has become an exceptional coeducational university. The population of esteemed alumni has burgeoned into the thousands: La Salle-educated men and women in many different fields and industries are now all over the world and are living testimonies to the mission of St. John Baptist De La Salle.
The Animo spirit lives on in every Lasallian. "Jamie Bentinganan"
