One of the top universities outside Manila, the University of San Carlos (USC) enjoys an environment free from the hustle and bustle that often distracts students in the capital. But the difference stops there.
As the business and tourist hub of Southern Philippines, Metro Cebu provides Carolinians (as USC students are called) with a cosmopolitan setting where malls are just a few minutes away from the beaches, heritage towns, or mountain resorts.
With its four campuses housing all levels of educational programs that include eight colleges and 27 departments, USC is truly a “universe-city” in its own right. International linkages now External Affairs and a steady influx of foreign students and visiting professors have made USC a multicultural academic community bonded by the common pursuit for global standards.
Now, who says you need the rat race to be able to excel?
