  9. Bert Padilla Bert Padilla

    Paraluman: Yeah, based on 4ICU web popularity – Cebu Normal University is number 6. Thanks for your comment…

  10. Bert Padilla Bert Padilla

    Paraluman: Yeah, based on 4ICU web popularity – Cebu Normal University is number 6. Thanks for your comment…

    There is no doubt for the University of San Carlos to be on the top spot. Remember that USC College of Engineering is the lone Philippine university member of the School on the Internet-Asia (SOI-Asia) which is a consortium of 15 universities situated in 11 countries across Asia. It can be noted also that the Philippines was the first to be connected to the Internet at the 1st International E- mail conference held at USC in March 1994.

    Being one of the pioneering school for medical courses, maybe you are right.

  13. Bert Padilla Bert Padilla

    Hannah, maybe you are right. But based on, ACT is not on the top 10 based on web popularity. Bdw, I'm a product of CITE Technical Institute, Inc. And currently belong to Cebu Institute of Technology. Thanks for the comment and don't forget to vote for the best Cebu University and College. The poll is on the sidebar of this page.

    I didn't consider or include any guidelines such as specific courses, etc. It's only a poll in which my visitors can select what they think the best school here in Cebu. The comments here will be summarized the time I post the result of the poll. The summary will include the reasons why people vote for a particular school. One reason also why I didn't categorize every school, simply because I want that all popular schools here in Cebu will be included on the list. It's up to my visitors which school they "HONESTLY" believe to be the best.

  17. Bert Padilla Bert Padilla

    @Kenneth: When I extracted all Cebu-based Universities and Colleges, It happened that CNU is actually no. 6 based on web popularity. I am not sure how 4ICU did that thing. If you believe CNU would be on top, I don't think you would not vote for CNU on the poll located on the sidebar of this page.

    Share lang ko guys, out of 20 branches in RCBC Cebu, 13 are all Josenian Graduates who are Business Branch Manager..

    wala na sa popularity, sa mga naay licensed, sa school.. what matter most is the competent and the skills sa real world industry.
