Carlos Hilado Memorial State University (CHMSU) held its commencement exercises with the theme “Shaping the Future through Globalized Education for Sustainable Development” for Class of 2023 of its Alijis, Fortune Towne, and Talisay campuses at the Talisay Campus Football Field.

Despite the rain during the ceremony, 2,177 graduates were conferred their degrees, a press release from the university said.

Commencement speaker, Raul F. Muyong, president of the Iloilo Science and Technology University,
emphasized the significance of education in the progress of communities and society, the importance of a strong and loving support system, and the necessity of soft skills and proper attitude to excel and grow in the workplace.

Muyong challenged the graduates not only use their skills and knowledge for money, but to make a difference in the world.

“Make informed decisions – responsible actions for environmental integrity, economic viability, and a just society for present and future generations,” Muyong said.

He added that the graduates must always nurture in their hearts the passion for learning and to walk with gratitude for the people who were instrumental to their success.

Muyong also encouraged the Class of 2023 to prove and manifest that they are deserving of the honors, prestige, rights and privileges that go with their degrees.

“Let your education at Carlos Hilado Memorial State University be the foundation and instrument in the pursuit of your goal in life, which is to excel wherever you go and in whatever you do. Remember that excellence is not being the best, but doing your best,” he said.

The graduates from the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business Management and Accountancy, College of Computer Studies, College of Education, College of Engineering, and College of Industrial Technology were presented by their respective deans.

The candidates were then conferred and declared as graduates by Norberto P. Mangulabnan, CHMSU president.
