Welcome Message for Freshmen A.Y. 2020-2021

Dear Freshmen Thomasian Scientists,

I would like to extend my warmest virtual welcome to the UST College of Science to all of you!

Never in recent history has science played such a visible role in society. This highlights the country’s need for more scientists to continue the task of discovering and understanding the world we live in, and in innovating technologies and processes to solve humanity’s most pressing concerns. Thomasian scientists have always played a significant role in charting the scientific progress of this country. By choosing the UST College of Science, you have already shown a desire to be part of this country’s scientific workforce. Our motto in the College of Science is “Galing Science, Galing Science!”. This speaks of our desire to instill excellence among our students, which we hope you will all embody by the time you earn your degrees.

This is a truly unprecedented start to Academic Year 2020-2021 for all of us. Rest assured that the College of Science is one with the entire UST community in ensuring that learning will take place for our students despite these challenging circumstances. The learning management system of the university, dubbed the UST Cloud Campus, which has been in place for more than a decade now, is ready to provide the main platform for the efficient delivery of instruction. However, given the distinct challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, our faculty are continuously innovating to meet the demands of this uncharted territory in higher education. We will also strive to provide adequate laboratory instruction, which is central to the sciences, despite the limitations set forth by physical distancing and public health regulations.

We hope to develop a strong partnership with you, our dear students, your parents, guardians, benefactors and families, in order to ensure that you get the quality Thomasian science education you sought to have by enrolling in our college.

We all pray that in due time, we can continue to deliver the quality Thomasian science education you deserve under more normal circumstances.

Prof. Rey Donne S. Papa, PhD
Dean

In this extraordinary time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the role of Faith and Science becomes greatly underscored in our life. Welcoming you to the University of Santo Tomás, therefore, does not only bring joy but hope for the people of God whom you will be serving.

In the face of physical, economic, psychological, and spiritual predicaments, we must be undeterred to pursue the Veritas (Truth) through our academic endeavors per scientiam ad Dominum (through Science towards the Lord) as inspired by our patron St. Albert the Great, and his illustrious disciple, St. Thomas Aquinas, who said: “Just as it is better to illuminate than merely to shine, so to pass on what one has contemplated is better than merely to contemplate” (cf. S.Th. II-II q. 188 a. 6.).

Through Faith and Science, we keep on finding courage in the midst of life’s hardship. When life is difficult, all the more that we need to be full of life. The harder the blow, the harder we hope. Illuminate others than merely shine. Share the fruits of your studies, than merely contemplate. Don’t be discouraged over closed doors; look for the back door and even the open windows. Don’t just focus on what we’ve lost; look also for what we’ve received. Welcome to the UST College of Science. 

Rev. Fr. Louie R. Coronel, O.P., EHL
Regent
