It is by being watchful that we notice the things that have remained steady amidst the swift run of the years.

College graduation—the light at the end of the tunnel. But is it really the “light” at the end or yet another door leading towards a longer and darker tunnel ahead?

5K SAGA. Amaranth chronicles VSU's experiences with CHED's one-time grant of P5,000 to students affected by Yolanda.

(UPDATED) 540 million pesos is a big amount. To the ordinary student, even five thousand pesos could have been a really big help.

Recognizing which school raked in the most number of medals for their hard work is fair. Declaring an “overall champion” based on a point system is not. It is problematic.

There’s a good reason why a lot of us don’t see student politics as a “big deal”.

Our student government is not set up the way it should be. And because of that, it is not functioning well, if at all.

Several commodities like garlic, ginger and rice had a price hike. You may think it is not really unusual but what if I tell you that the price raise doubled the normal price?

Let’s fight student apathy. These matters are not matters to be taken for granted but to be stood up against. Don’t you care? You should. 

ANGRY. Students are frustrated about how CHED and VSU is handling the five-thousand peso one-time grant for students affected by Yolanda.

"If they want to help many students, they should extend the deadline."

The choice lies on the hands of our college presidents on April this year and it is our responsibility as members to encourage them to make a good choice.

We have just witnessed the historic Investiture ceremony of the 6th President of VSU. And we’ve asked some students about their hopes for the University, under the leadership of our Dr. Edgardo Tulin.

The sum up all the sentiments and comments, expectations and predictions of our fellow students may be fulfilled if all of us will take part in making and building our university to its finest.
