After all the nomination of candidates to campaign speeches, casting of votes, up to counting, Hon. John Joseph L. Tabladillo surfaced as the new Student Republic Federation President.

“The feeling is surreal! I can still clearly recall when I was much younger that the university’s field used to be my playground. Now, I am already taking a very big responsibility as the newly-elected student regent. I am very honored to be taking part in giving hope and be an inspiration to my fellow students” Tabladillo shared during an interview.

When asked about his advocacy, he emphasized that bridging international engagements for students will be his priority. The gradual “ligtas balik eskwela” is on top of his list of things to do with the help of the key officials of the university. He will also encourage his fellow students to get vaccinated just in time for the university’s plan of having limited face-to-face classes.

“We are very positive that the University key officials will give their support on the idea of adopting a nearby community to be our partner. In our own little ways, we look forward to initiate projects such as tutorials, livelihood programs, giving of seminars and workshop, among others to help the community somehow improve their lives” he added.
