THE MANDALUYONG City government held a college fair to help Grade 12 students choose the school and course they will take.

The city gathered representatives of 33 universities and colleges in Metro Manila last December 10 to showcase the courses they are offering.

Councilor Benjie Abalos said the “Be Academically Aware” or B.A.A. College Fair was a whole day event that brought the schools closer to the students.

“If they will head to the different universities and colleges, they might only be able to visit three or four in a day,” Abalos said.

“But since we were able to invite 33 institutions in one venue, students don’t have to spend too much time and money just to get the right information they need to make the right decision on what course to take up in college and which school to go to,” he added.

Among the universities and colleges that participated in the event are Manuel L. Quezon University, Adamson University, University of Santo Tomas, University of Asia and the Pacific, Mapua Institute of Technology, World City College, De La Salle University, St. Scholastica’s College, Asia Pacific College, Jose Rizal University, Don Bosco Technical College, Mary Chiles College and Technological Institute of the Philippines.
