In an effort to prepare its newest batch of students for the challenging journey ahead, the School of Criminal Justice at Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) recently hosted its annual orientation program. This customary event marks the beginning of the first semester and aims to acquaint freshmen with the ins and outs of their academic life, especially within the context of the B.S. Criminology program.
The orientation program at MLQU stands out as it not only focuses on academics but also fosters a sense of camaraderie and support among the students. The event begins by introducing the incoming freshmen to their experienced peers. This introduction ensures that the newcomers feel comfortable to know that they have older students they can turn to for guidance and assistance throughout their academic journey.
Dr. Adriatico Del Camat, the Dean of the School of Criminal Justice, emphasized the paramount importance of cultivating a culture of discipline, particularly for students aspiring to work in law enforcement agencies, be it in the public or private sector. This emphasis on discipline resonates with MLQU’s commitment to producing graduates who are not only academically proficient but also morally upright and capable of upholding the law with integrity.
Ms. Sofia Caccam, the Director of the Office of Student Affairs and Services, further elaborated on the nurturing culture that MLQU strives to instill in its students. She outlined the various support services available to students, both academic and personal, designed to promote their overall well-being. These services ensure that students have access to the necessary resources to thrive during their time at MLQU.
The orientation program concluded on a positive note, with the new students feeling welcomed into the MLQU community. It is evident that MLQU’s School of Criminal Justice goes beyond the standard academic curriculum to provide a holistic educational experience. By combining academic excellence with a strong sense of discipline and camaraderie, MLQU prepares its students not only for their academic journey but also for their future roles in law enforcement and related fields.
The orientation program serves as a testament to the institution’s commitment to nurturing disciplined and well-rounded individuals who are not only academically prepared but also ready to make a positive impact to their chosen careers and society as a whole.
