Letran in Middle East Philippine Schools
by Golda Aira Crisostomo - Letran News November - December 2008
10 countries, 22 days.
An avenue for Colegio de San Juan de Letran to visit the Middle East Philippine schools occurred last October 17 to November 6 when Asst. Prof. Golda Aira V. Crisostomo joined Dr. Mecheline Zonia I. Manalastas, Director for Admissions of the University of Santo Tomas, for the administration of the USTET in Philippine schools in Oman, Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jeddah, Al-Khobar and Riyadh.
Letran was introduced as the sister school of UST in the career talks held in 20 schools. The third year students who attended the orientation had a glimpse of the Colegio as well as an idea of the Abucay campus and its course offerings.
This endeavor hopes to convince Filipino high school students based in the Middle East to make Letran their second home when they come back to the Philippines for their tertiary education.
Ambassadors of the Philippines to Bahrain and Saudi Arabia as well as the Consul General of Jeddah welcomed Colegio de San Juan de Letran in their respective countries of assignment.
