The University of San Agustin (USA) – Iloilo celebrated its 117 years of Catholic education and Augustinian experience on July 15, 2021.
The event opened with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
A short glimpse of the University of San Agustin through the years was shared to students, faculty, personnel, alumni, sponsors and donors, and other stakeholders through live streaming in its social media page (FB University of San Agustin – Iloilo).
It was also a momentous day as the university continues its mission to explore and discover possibilities through research with the blessing and groundbreaking of the USA Magnetic Resonance Facility.
The announcement of finalists for the Dinagyang Monument Design Competition was also one of the highlights of the celebration.
It was in 1904 when the Augustinian friars founded the school and it began as a preparatory school for boys.
As the years passed by, various programs for science and the arts were opened to cater to more students who are willing to learn.
The university has also expanded its courses and programs to provide students more options in harnessing their skills and knowledge that would equip them for the industry later on.
At present, it continues to grow and remain stronger amidst the challenges brought about by the pandemic. /excerpts from the Daily Guardian
