Reminder from the Office of Student Affairs:
Look your BEST in BUniform!

Each school has its own policy about what to wear. Thus, students enrolled in any school, college or university should abide by the rules and regulations on wearing the appropriate uniform inside the school premise to promote student discipline. This will encourage the students to act responsibly at all times and protect the integrity of the school. This will also remind them that the school is a place for learning and personal development. The school uniform serves as the identity of the students enrolled in schools, colleges or universities. By wearing uniform, outsiders can be easily identified and controlled from wandering inside the campus. Thus, safety of the students and other school personnel is ensured. Aside from discipline, the implementation of rule on school uniform also teaches conformity. These two qualities should be imbibed by the students because these are vital in later life as they deal with government laws and social norms. Lastly, school uniforms make everyone feel equal. It symbolizes unity and promotes a sense of community and belonging which is significant in boosting someone’s self-esteem.

We are K-12 ready

In an age of rapid technological advances, a strong educational program is essential for a certain country in order to produce globally competent graduates. As of now, our country is not educating enough technologically skilled and knowledgeable workers, a situation that will compromise our competitive advantage in an increasingly global economy. To support a vision of global competency which ensures that all students receive high quality instruction, the Department of Education recommends — K-12. K to 12 is defined as kindergarten to the 12 years of combined elementary and high school education. Having that into context, Baliuag University is K-12 ready. Not to mention that our University, particularly, is the host school for the week-long bridge program this summer — to prepare education practitioners on this breakthrough.
