What are you looking forward to after your graduation?
“I’ve just been scared. Syempre matagal na puro studies lang. It’s just scarier that we’re gonna be on our own. Like, it’s good news too, but ita-try mo to make something out of what you’ve learned throughout the 4 years of studies.”
Throughout your Thomasian journey, how different were you when you first entered the arch compared to today? What do you think contributed to these changes?
“Since puro research at fieldwork sa Socio[logy], natutunan talaga namin makipagsalamuha sa mga tao. Nag-change rin ‘yung outlook ko sa lahat talaga kasi siyempre when it comes to studying Sociology, mag-iiba talaga ‘yung perspective mo sa buhay.”
What do you think makes UST the “dream” university? Personally, How did UST live up to your expectations?
“First, is ‘yung school spirit talaga. Ayun ‘yung nagpamahal sakin sa UST. ‘Yung [idea] na all kinds of people are here, na hindi ka mahihirapan mag-adjust.”
– Samantha Fernandez, sociology senior
