Choosing the right university is one of the most important aspects that an incoming college student should consider besides the choice of course to pursue. Many institutions emerged in Cavite because it is one of the most industrialized provinces in the country. Some of well-known universities established here are: De La Salle University in Dasmariñas, Cavite State University Main-Campus in Indang (other campuses are located around the whole province), Polytechnic University of the Philippines in Maragondon, Far Eastern University in Silang, Lyceum of the Philippines University in General Trias, and many more. There are lots of eligible institutions to choose from but why did we choose Lyceum of the Philippines University?
One of the reasons why we choose LPU is because of its good reputation earned through the years. An institution without good management will never make its way in this industry nor will it survive. The Lyceum of the Philippines University system has five affiliate campuses located at Intramuros, Manila; Batangas City, Batangas; Calamba City, Laguna; City of Makati and General Trias, Cavite. Even though Lyceum of the Philippines University Cavite-Campus just opened its doors to the public at year 2008, the numbers of enrollees boost because of its accessibility for us Caviteños. The institution is located at the center of Cavite, targeting students from different parts of the province from Bacoor to Tagaytay.
Lyceum of the Philippines University offers undergraduate and graduate programs in various fields of study, including law, liberal arts, diplomacy, international trade and journalism, as well as engineering, business and accountancy, mass communication, tourism and hotel and restaurant management. Another reason why we chose LPU is because it offers in demand courses that produce competent professionals globally.
The university was called as “The First and Only Resort Campus in the Philippines” due to its modern and elegant design. Aside from its unique structure, it also has complete facilities that would be really helpful for students’ practical learning. All rooms are air conditioned and its sizes
are just enough to accommodate an average number of students. The university has different laboratories for outside class discussions such as Computer Laboratory, Mac Laboratory, Bayleaf Mini Hotel, Moot Court, Drawing Room, Dance Studios, Gymnasium and that which enhance students’ talents and abilities. The university has two buildings named after Sotero H. Laurel and Jose P. Laurel that was connected by a new building forming the laurel leaf structure, earlier this year. The Academic Resource Center or the University Library was relocated and just opened its doors to students last summer of this semester. The employees in this institution are really approachable and friendly. The security and maintenance personnel are always around the vicinity and it really shows that they are really dedicated to their work. The professors are professionals in their chosen field. They are highly competent to produce another generation of professionals from this university.
To sum up this, there are lots of aspects to take in to consideration in choosing the right educational institution.

We chose Lyceum of the Philippines University – Cavite Campus as our alma mater because we believe that this educational institution will mold us into what we want to be. Viva Larga Pirata!
