2 Philippine Normal University

PNU is the only state university for education in the Philippines. It trains individuals who would serve learners from pre-school to higher education, public schools, private schools and even international schools. Most of us entered PNU literally without penny in the pocket. But when we graduate, with PNU attached to our credentials, it entails life-long learning, dignified future, prestige, and social responsiveness.

PNU is the hope of the hopes of the country. As the National Center for Teacher Education, PNU produce quality teachers and pedagogical researches.

An exceptional school! They have the best students because they have the best professors as well!

My mom is one of the best teachers in her school. She is a graduate of PNU.

3 Visayas State University

As a Graduate of VSU in 2007 I will give my support to my Alma Mater as one of the best State University in the Philippines, my experience in this campus was amazing. I grow as a strong independent individual from mountainous area in Negros Occidental and travel to the beautiful student friendly school and community. I gain in this school not only knowledge, personal development, and diploma but it teach me how to appreciate simple things, friendship, emotional stability and courage. Phase of my life that I can't really forget.

We had confidence as graduates as far as 1986, when I -straight from April graduation, competed fir position of medical representative at Astra Zeneca pharmaceuticals wherein from over 300+ applicants, was part of 36 finalist for classroom trainings, then realised other people from so-called top univ in Manila, weren't performing as good as mine, and everyday for the next 30 days, the class is getting smaller with forced or self-eliminations...basically with just anatomy n physiology lessons?...I'd admire the basic and advance stock knowledge I'd acquired in VSU ESP in bio, natural sciences and chemistry...

Only the bright students are accepted in this school. The students must study hard of else they will be advised to transfer. The school produce quality graduates topnotchers in board exams and recipients of various awards. With all of these accomplishments, they remain humble.

Only those top students in high school are admitted because of its requirements. Most students in the class are poor hardworking kids. Most alumni have higher positions now in their field of work.
