CatSU OSADS conducts re-orientation for students this 2nd Sem, S.Y. 2022-2023


The Office of Student Affairs and Development Services (OSADS) of Catanduanes State University (CatSU) has started its re-orientation program for all college students for the second semester of the school year 2022-2023.

The program aims to educate and inform the students about the existing Student Handbook (version 2018) and other laws related to their behavior, discipline, and conduct as premier university students.

The OSADS has set objectives that will enhance the understanding of the students in various academic and non-academic approaches. The students will learn the proper ways of addressing issues and concerns that may arise from time to time in their respective colleges.

Specific topics such as the Comprehensive Dangerous Drug Act, Bomb Threats, and Anti-Sexual Harassment Law and Violence Against Women and Children and Safe Space Act will be discussed.

In addition, the re-orientation program will include reminders on the use of university facilities, University Traffic Laws and Rules, and Respect and Appreciation for Individual and Socio-Cultural Differences.

The program is aimed to educate and equip the students with skills to educate their co-students about the appropriate behavior as a student of a premier university of the Island-province.

The OSADS believes that this program will help the students to be aware of the laws that are eminent for human existence and to act accordingly.

The program facilitators were the Chief of Police - Virac, PMAJ Robert Kevin T Caparroso, PSSG Antonino B. Aquino, PMCS Josephine Bergonio, Prof. John Cyrus B. Francis, Dr. Ryan T. Timbal, Mr. Noly T. Benavides, Ms. Janette O. Labayani, and Engr. Benjamin Hannycel T. Nuyda.

The schedules of the University-wide Re-Orientation were as follows: College of Agriculture and Fisheries (March 2), College of Education (March 3), College of Engineering and Architecture (March 6), College of Humanities and Social Sciences (March 8), College of Science (March 13), College of Business and Accountancy (March 15), College of Health Sciences (March 16), College of Industrial Technology (March 17), and College Information and Communications Technology (March 20).

Prof. John Cyrus Francis, OSADS Director, hopes that with the re-orientation program, CatSU is confident that its students will become responsible and disciplined citizens who will be instrumental in nation-building.  #FJBT
