CatSU to construct student development center after 62 yearsStudents
After 62 years, the students of Catanduanes State University (CatSU) will finally have their own building to be managed by the student council.
This was the good news shared by CatSU President, Dr. Patrick Alain T. Azanza in his Facebook account.
According to his post, under the General Appropriations Act 2023, the first phase of the Student Development Center, worth 25 million pesos, has been approved as one of the major projects of the current administration. The center will house all the student body organizations of each college of CatSU, together with the Office of Student Services and the Office of Student Scholarships and Assistance. Construction will commence this March 2023.
He also said that the building will be equipped with meeting rooms and a student lounge with internet connection. The building will be constructed adjacent to the Men’s Dorm which is a walking distance to the Ladies Dorm, and the Sports Complex.
Once completed, the building will be turned over to the Federated College Student Council (FCSC) for them to manage and decide how to use the facility. The FCSC, having its own bank account, holds the responsibility of deciding how to spend student funds, subject to COA rules, the CatSU President added.
Dr. Azanza also recognized the efforts of Former Student Regent Renz Mickenley T. Tanael, now a Municipal Councilor of the Municipality of Bato, who was also part of the planning of this project. He also thanked the incumbent Student Regent Angelo Piolo M. Laynes who also extended his support to this initiative.
Moreover, Dr. Azanza said that with the construction of the Student Development Center, CatSU students can look forward to having a space of their own for activities and events, as well as a center for student services and assistance. #FJBT
