A local college will soon rise in Santa Rosa City, Laguna soon so students can receive quality education without traveling far.
Mayor Arlene Arcillas announced on January 29 that the Santa Rosa City College will soon rise.
During a forum to mark the college’s establishment, Arcillas said Santa Rosa City College would develop the competencies of the youth of the city to meet the demands of the local industries and businesses.
She added that the college will not be in competition with state universities and other colleges in the city, and will address the gaps in the education and employment of the city’s youth.
Dr. Raymundo Arcega, Executive Director of the Commission on Accreditation for Local Colleges and Universities (ALCUCO), said the local college will “complement” the Polytechnic University of the Philippines – Santa Rosa Campus.
