What Alumni are Saying

“SACLI imparted me the appropriate knowledge and skills needed in my chosen profession and has provided me the essential characteristics and core values that honed and prepared me to who I am today.”

Maricon G. Munar

BS Criminology program graduate - Batch 2013

“My former professors gave us sleepless nights, preparing voluminous lesson plans, instructional materials, portfolios, and all the rudiments on becoming an efficient and effective teacher. Their teachings are forever engraved in my soul. They always say that the aim is simple, but to attain it is complicated; that is, to be a TEACHER WITH A HEART.
“By mixing the traditional and modern approaches, SACLI can produce graduates ready for the demands of the real world after school. And I am a proud product of it.”

Karl Angelo F. Plar

BS Criminology program graduate - Batch 2012

“St. Anne College became my stepping stone in achieving my dream. During my college days, I had experienced down in the bumps. These challenges had given me life learnings that molded me to become a professional and stronger person today. One of the most memorable experiences I had was when I became a Cadet Officer. Being a Cadet Officer has taught me modesty and kindred, embracing responsibilities, that humility can bring the goodness within one person. And that in order to be respected, one must respect others. The trainings given to us as criminology students were almost similar to the degree of level of the trainings in military. These made me a stronger person, mentally and physically. It molded my excellence into character. It had prepared me for life, by increasing my threshold towards stress and adversities. I also realized that learning is a continuous process. Many people once they passed any certification or attained a degree, they would feel they have achieved the pinnacle of life. However, in reality, it is not. It is only a small part in the lifelong learning process.”
