Grade 11 students were granted a valuable opportunity to engage in an enlightening interview with Ms. Lucille P. Ortile, the Executive Vice President of MLQU. This interview was conducted in connection with their project for Practical Research II, overseen by Dr. Jaime G. Ang. Let us delve into the highlights of this interview:
What were the challenges that MLQU experienced when it transferred from Quiapo, Manila to EDSA, Quezon City?
The primary challenge faced by MLQU during its transfer from Quiapo to EDSA was changing the perception that MLQU had relocated. Since its establishment in 1947, MLQU had been closely associated with Quiapo, even serving as the venue for Bar Examinations. Despite the passage of nine years, many people still mistakenly believe that MLQU is situated in Quiapo. However, we have now established presence in the heart of Quezon City, along EDSA. To address this misconception, we are undertaking a media campaign to inform everyone that Manuel L. Quezon has returned home to Quezon City, where the university truly belongs. Our current site, the MLQU Campus on EDSA, along with the nearby Victoria Sports Tower, offers greater convenience compared to our previous location in Quiapo. In terms of transportation, the campus is easily accessible via EDSA or the MRT. Additionally, being located in the biggest city in the country, we are surrounded by major institutional and business districts.
What can MLQU offer to incoming students?
MLQU prides itself on being a student-centric institution, where the well-being and development of our students are of utmost importance. We strive to create a sense of family away from home for our students.
At MLQU, we strongly believe in promoting a health life-education balance. We recognize that academic excellence alone is insufficient if it is not accompanied by emotional and mental well-being.
In essence, what we offer at MLQU extends beyond academic instruction. We are dedicated to nurturing our students’ personal growth and ensuring their holistic development. We strive to create an environment where they feel supported, valued and empowered to thrive.
What makes MLQU different from other colleges and universities in Quezon City?
MLQU stands out from other colleges and universities in Quezon City for several reasons. Firstly, its accessibility sets it apart. Situated at the heart of Quezon City, MLQU is easily reachable via both public and private transportation making it convenient for students to commute to, and from the campus.
Secondly, MLQU prides itself on its unique student-centric culture. The institution places a strong emphasis on catering to the needs and well-being of its students, providing a supportive and nurturing environment that fosters personal growth and development.
Thirdly, MLQU offers quality education facilitated by a roster of established faculty members, all at a more affordable price compared to other schools. Despite its lower tuition fees, MLQU maintains its commitment to delivering a high standard of education and implements a mentoring system to further support its students.
Furthermore, MLQU boasts a long and illustrious history as an established institution. With a 75-year legacy, it has produced numerous accomplished alumni who have excelled in various fields, including government, public service, judiciary, culture and the arts, education, media and business. This legacy adds to the institution’s reputation and distinguishes it from other schools.
Moreover, MLQU remains dedicated to continuous improvement. The institution actively invests in retooling and upskilling efforts to enhance its academic programs and non-academic services. It constantly seeks ways to better serve its students and create a more enriching educational experience.
