“Siya talaga yung professor na pwedeng-pwede mong malapitan at masabihan ng kahit ano. Tapos hindi ka ipapahiya pag mali ang sagot mo, itatama ka pa niya in the most gentle way as possible. Maraming Salamat sa mga personal advices and Rest in Peace, Ma’am Emy!” Lara Alfaro, a behavioral science student, said in a Facebook post.
UST Behavioral Science Society (UST- BESSOC) also offered their condolences to the bereaved family.
