5K SAGA. Amaranth chronicles VSU's experiences with CHED's one-time grant of P5,000 to students affected by Yolanda.

(UPDATED) 540 million pesos is a big amount. To the ordinary student, even five thousand pesos could have been a really big help.

ANGRY. Students are frustrated about how CHED and VSU is handling the five-thousand peso one-time grant for students affected by Yolanda.

“Last time, it was more on lectures. It was actually useful but what we’re trying to achieve is learning while having fun. They are doing activities that are new to them because they have national speakers. They assess themselves and the things they learned after each activity.”

Ate Cherrie is now making a name for herself globally. Recently, she had been awarded as one of the 2016 Ten Outstanding Women in the Nation's Service, and the 'Earth Mover' award through Rappler on Move.Ph.

We need to think before we leap, let us be informed and prepared because the best prevention of the disease is by being well-informed.

How to make the most out of modern technology.

This is no science fiction. Really, if burning of fossil fuels such as coals are not minimized, the situation above would not be superficial as it now appears to be.
