THE UST Office for Admissions (OFAd) drew thousands of students in the 28th Career Consultation and Guidance Fair (CCGF) at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

More than 10,000 graduating senior high students attended the event launched by the International Education Student Exchange Program with its partner academic institutions last Sept. 4 and 5.

UAAP standouts including Sisi Rondina, Salinggawi Dance Troupe and Galvanize-UST were also present to help promote UST.

Steeve Moore Jr., OFAd assistant for marketing, said the University has always been one of the event’s crowd drawers.

“We want to not just attract these kids but to make them see as early as now how we train and develop our students [in UST],” Moore told the Varsitarian in the sidelines of the event.

OFAd Assistant Director Eric Dimar cited the importance of career consultations to avoid scenarios in which students take up a college program only to realize that it is not the right path for them.

“Career counseling is important because it helps young people identify a program fit for them and what school offers that program for them,” Dimar said.

A total of 52 colleges, universities and institutions participated in the consultation fair.
