The Father Rector of the University of Santo Tomas, Very Rev. Fr. Richard G. Ang, O.P., PhD, met with the former General Santos City Mayor, the Honorable Ronnel C. Rivera last, February 6.
During the brief meeting held at Rivera’s office, the Father Rector personally thanked the former head of the city for supporting UST during his term. In 2013, the land property of the University was officially assigned as institutional land, which resulted in the permission for its development into a school campus.
Situated in Barangays Ligaya and Katangawan, UST General Santos will start operations within the year in preparation for its admission of students in Academic Year 2024-2025.
Together with the Father Rector were Rev. Fr. Gerard Zabala, OP of the Dominican Filial House of San Martin de Porres, General Santos City; Academician Prof. Maribel Nonato, PhD, Assistant to the Rector for UST General Santos Campus; Mr. Levine Andro Lao of the UST Office for Grants, Endowments and Partnerships in Higher Education; and Mr. Cristian Naval of the UST Research and Endowment Foundation, Inc.
