Virtual “meet and greet” to open academic year and kick-off CLSU DOT-Uni 25th anniversary countdown.

CLSU DOTUni hosted two ‘meet and greet’ sessions via videoconferencing last August 30 and 31, 2021. More than a hundred current and new students actively participated in the virtual meetings and interacted with university administrators and faculty tutors. Issues and concerns ranging from alternative payment platforms for university fees, forging tutor-student rapport, to navigating complex program of study regulations were discussed openly. The candid exchange between faculty administrators, support staff and even among students led to identification of interim solutions to otherwise systemic challenges needing long-term institutional reforms. Current students also warmly welcomed incoming ones and shared experiences and survival tips as graduate students at CLSU DOTUni. Aside from formally opening the academic year (2021-2022), the activity also launched the yearlong countdown to DOTUni’s 25th anniversary celebration on 29 August 2022. With the theme, “CLSU DOT-Uni@25 The Digital University and the future of higher education in the Philippines and beyond,” the upcoming run-up activities are opportunities for CLSU to come together as a community for reflection, stocktaking and imagining as we leap-frog to the future.
