School Year 2014-2015 formally opened as ASCOT welcomed the 734 freshmen and transferees during the General Orientation Program held last June 10, 2014 at the ASCOT Covered Court.
The event was graced by the presence of the College President, Dr. Eusebio V. Angara, the Vice Presidents of the College, Dr. Gerardo S. Rillon, VP for Administration and Dr. Ma Luz F. Cabatan, VP for Academic Affairs, Directors and Faculty members of each academic program.
The College Orientation Day was the first activity of SY 2014-2015 where new students were briefed on the College rules and regulations, different Campus organizations, services and programs offered by the different Departments, and various activities held in the College. The activity was also organized for them to learn how to cope up with the adversity of work expected from them as students of this institution as ASCOT education demands full attention, dedication and effort in studying and meeting the course requirements. It also demands agility and stamina as you have to walk from one building to another, climb stairs and slopes to reach your next subject.
The Academic Directors also took turns as they introduced their faculty members and spoke briefly about their respective Department regarding their academic and retention policies, grading system, activities and program offerings during the orientation for academic programs.
To address the common concerns of First Year students, Directors for Student Services including Socio-Cultural
Affairs, ICTC, Accounting Department, Registrar Office, Sports Development, Student Discipline, Health Services,
Library Guidance Office, and Scholarship Program also discussed their services that will assist the students
during their stay in ASCOT.
On the other hand, the Student Publication and Supreme College Student Council also presented their organization’s services and encourage the new students to join and actively participate in the different activities of the College.
As the students now knuckle down to their coursework, the information, challenges and advices they learn from the orientation would surely sustain them for the semester.
