Our Lady of Fatima University was really instrumental in shaping my dreams and accomplishments. It made me realize the value of camaraderie and the importance of tenacity especially when it comes to one’s studies. Three years ago, I was just a regular college student walking through the halls of the college. Back then, the only reason why I had to come to school was to learn and not yet to gain friends. However, as months and semesters went on, I gradually immersed myself into the system and was able to have many friends of my own.
The University also taught me to be proud and adaptable - proud because of its numerous achievements and adaptable despite the vast circumstances surrounding us. In Fatima, these traits are enhanced more. The number of students was also a major challenge. It’ll be hard for someone to remember all his classmates, especially in my case that I was an irregular student and so I had to attend a different class for each of my subject. Yes, it was such a huge hassle; albeit, if you try to see it from a positive light, you get to know more people than a regular student.
The school was very helpful in inculcating among the students the value of competency and professionalism. Its goal is not just for the students to pass the board exam, but also to become globally competitive individuals, and I, for one, felt that. It was hard with all the clinical rotations from Manila to Bulacan and Pampanga. But it was the hardships that you will remember when you’re already on the top. If it weren’t for Fatima, our views and perspectives would have not been the same. Thus, we thank our school wholeheartedly. Thank you Fatima, our Alma Mater dear.
