University of Batangas: Lipa Campus Groundbreaking
 Date Posted:

Eyes are focused on Lipa City as it welcomes the first branch of University of Batangas outside Batangas City. The UB Lipa Campus (UBLC) is strategically located near the soon-to-open STAR Tollway’s Pusil Exit, situated between Barangays Marawoy and Balintawak. Concrete fencing has been completed as of May 2010.

The groundbreaking activity was held last July 7, 2010. On hand to lower the symbolic time capsule to the ground were Dr. Hernando B. Perez (University President) and former Batangas Governor Vicente A. Mayo (Chairman, Board of Regents). Gracing this important milestone of Batangas’ first private university were recognized leaders in their respective areas: Mayor Meynardo Sabili (Lipa City), Mayor Danilo Sombrano (Mataas na Kahoy), Mayor Prudencio Gutierrez (Padre Garcia), Mayor Juan Toreja (Ibaan), Lipa City Councilor Concon Hernandez and Barangay Capt. Melchor Olan (Marawoy) and his councilmen. Members of the UB Executive and Academic Councils were also present to witness another milestone in UB’s 64 years of existence as a learning institution.

The 3.5 hectare campus will initially house a two-storey building that will include the Administrative Offices, classrooms, laboratories and multi-purpose activity hall. With its full operation by SY 2011-2012, the following programs will be offered: AB Legal Management, AB Political Science, BS Psychology, Bachelor of Elementary Education, Bachelor of Secondary Education, BS International Hospitality Management, BS Tourism Management, BS Computer Science, BS Information Technology, BS Business Administration, BS Accountancy, BS Computer Engineering and Science High School Program (secondary level).

Atty. Vicente A. Mayo mentioned in his short talk, “We are not here in Lipa City to compete against other schools and universities. Rather, we intend to provide the youth of Lipa and its neighboring towns the opportunity to enjoy quality education that is not only globally competitive, but technology - and research-driven as well.”
