PSU celebrates 33 years of academic service

IT is the school for poor but deserving students.

That is how Pangasinan State University, which is celebrating its 33rd year this month, positions itself as it caters to young Pangasinenses aspiring for a college diploma but lack the financial capacity.

PSU was formally founded in 1979, but it traces its origins back to the 1920s.

PSU was chartered by Presidential Decree No. 1479 promulgated on June 11, 1978 and became fully operational on July 1, 1979. It is mandated to provide advanced instruction in the arts, agriculture and natural sciences as well as in technological and professional fields.

PSU now has nine campuses around the province, a graduate school and an open university.

Its main campus is in Lingayen while the others are in Alaminos City, Asingan, Bayambang, Binmaley, Infanta, San Carlos City, Santa Maria and Urdaneta City. The PSU Graduate School is situated in Urdaneta City and the Open University Systems OUS) is operated from the Lingayen and Binmaley campuses.

Activities lined up for the anniversary celebration, anchored on the theme “PSU @33: The Journey towards Global Excellence Continues”, include the Search for Mr. and Ms. PSU (students’ group) and Search for Mr. and Mrs. PSU (faculty and staff group), free medical mission and gift-giving in the main campus on July 19, tree planting at the Infanta Campus, and a coastal clean-up/bancathon in Alaminos.

The highlight of this year’s celebration is PSU’s partnership with the Maejo University in Chiang Mai, Thailand for a university sisterhood. (PIA-Pangasinan/AMM)
