The Ambassador and his party were toured to the different campuses of the university for him to see personally the structure, facilities, the physical infra, the IT system  and other best features of the university which impressed the Ambassador and his colleagues. They were also briefed on the academic programs, development programs and projects funded by international organizations and the accreditation of the business programs by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) which is based in the Philippines and a member of the Asia Pacific Quality Network. The tour ended in the Office of the Vice Chancellor together with Ms. Dulce Corazon Lamagna and Ms. Carlin Noelle Lamagna warmly welcome the Ambassador and party.
