BALANGA CITY, Bataan – A top official of the Bataan Peninsula State University (BPSU) revealed yesterday that they are rushing the construction of various school buildings worth P131 million in the six campuses of the university.
This was revealed by Dr Greg Rodis, president of BPSU, who said that more school rooms and technical buildings will be finished this 2018.
“The funds being spent for these projects came from our national budget and the rest also came from our earnings or tuition fee collection,” pointed out Rodis.
Set to be finished is the College of Business Administration building in this city with an allocated budget of P41 million while the first phase of the new nursing school buildings have been finished.
A highly-respected educator, Rodis said that another structure being constructed is the engineering building inside the BPSU main campus.
Asked why the BPSU has several infrastructure projects being implemented, Rodis pointed out that “If you cannot implement the allocated funds for the year, then the national government might not allocate bigger amount for you in the next year. If they see that you are performing well, by implementing what is to be done, then you’ll be given more budget allocations in the coming years”.
Right after its conversion when then congressman now Gov Abet Garcia authored a law for its expansion and conversion into a state university, BPSU has become bigger in terms of infrastructures, number of students and has also become high-tech and is now the top producer of board passers and professionals.
