A new restaurant inside Shangri-la?
A wedding proposal, maybe?
Another real estate project?
Although the last one can somehow be the closest, you will find out why as you read on.
Manuel happens to be Manuel L. Quezon and it turns out that he is waiting for MLQU Alumni for the Grand Alumni homecoming last May 22, 2015. Although Manuel’s waiting does not end there, Manuel will continue to wait and #MaghihintayAkoManuel will not be put to rest.
MLQU started out as a university in 1947 at R. Hidalgo Quiapo, the university rose to fame as it produced several bar topnotchers back in the days.
Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) aims to puts emphasize in its historical significance to the new generation. The campaign ushers in the university's many plans to continue its legacy into the new generation.
“It’s about time that we get back on track and build the culture of excellence and legacy of becoming an outstanding institution,” New San Jose Builders, Inc. (NSJBI) co-chairman and MLQU president Dr. Isagani Germar said.
There you have it guys, the relativity of the campaign to a real estate project, New San Jose Builders' has acquired MLQU last October 2014, envisioning of the university's plans for upgrade are beginning to take shape. One of the priority is reclaiming its role as a breeding ground for nation-builders and producing graduates that would attain 100% passing rate in board and bar exams.
The new leadership of MLQU assures that with the help of the new management, today’s generation of Quezonians would be able to meet and even exceed the glory of the university's past.
MLQU has produced notable Quezonians who have made an impact in their respective industries. Among these are Rustica Carpio (academician and multi-awarded actress on stage, film, and television) who first appeared in Ishmael Bernal’s Nunal sa Tubig in 1976. For her accomplishments, Dr. Carpio is a recipient of over 50 national and international honors and awards which includes being one of the Ten Outstanding Women of the Philippines in 1968 from Federacion Internacional de Abogadas (FIDA Phil.)
Another alumnus who made a name for himself is Neil Perez, an officer of the Philippine National Police Aviation and Security Group, he won the title of Mister International Philippines in a pageant held in Seoul, South Korea on February 14.
During his speech, MLQU President Dr. Isagani Germar shared how he intended to mention each and every Alumnus who made a name for themselves, He started from the graduates of 1940s but upon reaching names for 1950s, he realized it has been more than an hour of writing, thus he discontinued the idea.
Furthermore, MLQU graduates who made notable achievements in government service include Former Foreign Affairs secretary Alberto Romulo; Former Commission on Elections chair Benjamin S. Abalos ; Former Labor Secretary and Senate President Blas F. Ople; Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin; Department of Trade and Industry undersecretary Lilia de Lima; Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz; Tarlac Governor Jose V. Yap; Former Chairman, PCGG Magtanggol Gunigundo; Former Agrarian Reform Secretary and former Bulacan Governor Obet Pagdanganan; Former Senator Wigberto Tañada Former Senator Wenceslao Lagumbay; and Congressmen Rodolfo Albano Jr., Pangalian Balindog, Fredrick Abueg, Silvestre Bello III, Antonio del Rosario, Samuel Pagdilao and Reynaldo Umali.
There were even some Alumni who were included in the Philippine National Police Special Action Force's “Fallen 44”, these were Police Senior Inspectors John Gary Erana, Max Jim Tria, and Rennei Tayrus.
With its many graduates who have achieved distinction in their field, MLQU is indeed a school for achievers and future heroes. This is because through quality education and training, MLQU strives to produce nationalistic, competent, educated, and upright Quezonians imbued with a spirit of selflessness and commitment to being of service to society. This is why many Quezonians have become sikat in their respective fields.
With its new management’s further plans were unveiled such as the plan to transfer its Graduate studies to Victoria Towers in EDSA rebranding it to School for Professional Advancement & Continuing Education (SPACE). Other plan includes, to establish its presence with its facility in Balanga, Bataan.
Increasing its enrollees is at the priority of the board as discussed during the after event press conference.
