The University Guidance Services provides guidance and counseling support programs for students who may be experiencing any measure of distress that may affect his or her behavior within and outside the University.
One of the objectives of the University’s Guidance Program is to help students develop self-awareness. The Guidance Center administered the EQ test and Temperament Sorter to all students taking up General Psychology last September. The results of the tests did not only provide the students and teachers awareness on the emotional and personality states of the students but also helped them relate with the subject.
Being young adults, it is but natural to experience the joys and pains of being in a relationship. Be it as a classmate, peer, family or special someone, each of us has our own tale of sadness, confusions and disappointments brought about by relational conflicts. Your counselors will be glad to listen to your life stories. They are sworn to protect your secrets.
Where does your time go? With too much task at hand and with the never ending deadlines, how well do you manage your time? It is a fact that even straight A’s students find it difficult to manage their time. That is why we have developed time management training modules and brochures which are intended to help you keep track of your precious time, avoid procrastination and to set your priorities.

As your counselors, we believe that teen sexuality should not be ignored. Rather, we believe that it is best that students are kept well informed about the topic and that no issues are left unanswered. As a Catholic institution, we firmly believe in the value of human life, personal dignity and respect, and the advocacy of sexual responsibility through chastity education.
Some college students who are currently working on their theses are provided assistance by the Guidance Counselors. Tutorial sessions were also coordinated with the Math department, CICT, and Accounting department.
