HAU to inaugurate Peter G. Nepomuceno Bldg.

Holy Angel University will formally inaugurate its newest and largest structure on campus, the 10-storey Peter G. Nepomuceno Center for Professional Development, named after the school founder’s youngest son and intended to house the University’s prestige courses.

HAU Board of Trustees Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan and University President Dr. Arlyn S. Villanueva will join Engr. Peter Nepomuceno in the ribbon-cutting ceremonies at the building’s main lobby on March 7, 2014, which the University has designated as this year’s Founders Day.

Most Rev. Paciano B. Aniceto, D.D., Archbishop of San Fernando and HAU Board of Trustees Vice-Chairman, will lead clergy members in the blessing of the building.

The building houses the University’s Graduate School as well as the College of Business and Accountancy, which is the biggest academic unit in the University. The upper floors will be used for the future College of Law, including a moot court and a library.

Other facilities in the new building include a 500-seat auditorium, a 270-seat food court, 19 case rooms, 8 computer laboratories, thesis defense room, research computer laboratory, 4 function rooms, 45 classrooms, student lounge, administrative offices, faculty rooms, and a roof deck with garden.

The Office of Student Services and Affairs, including the guidance center, medical/dental clinics, student council/student publication offices and a coffee shop, are found in the building’s ground floor. The building is also equipped with 100 CCTV cameras and WiFi connection.

The building was named after Don Juan D. Nepomuceno’s youngest of 10 children, who is known for his skillful management of the family’s many businesses, his philanthropy and his generosity to the Archdiocese, particularly the clergy and the seminary.
