Creative Expression and Engagement: In line with the theme, Ms. Arriane Joy Limbag and the office of Student affairs and Services (OSAS) staff organized a Digital poster Making activity. This creative endeavor provided participants with a platform to express their thoughts and ideas on the significance of CHED's 30th anniversary and its impact on the Philippine Higher Education landscape.

The kick-off activity organized by the PCB serves as a testament to the institution's unwavering support for CHED and its commitment to advancing the cause of Higher Education in the Philippines. As the 30th CHED Celebration unfolds, let us continue to come together as a community, celebrating achievements, fostering innovation, and empowering Filipino scholars to reach greater heights of excellence.
