The Ateneo Life
Life in Ateneo is one to be experienced rather than be written in words.
No expression aptly describe the privilege of being on the receiving end of premier quality Jesuit education, nor is there a mixture of words that could properly manifest what it feels like to be taught by the region’s most esteemed educators. Being at the forefront of premier Jesuit education in the region, Ateneo offers students not only the chance to achieve academic excellence, but social and spiritual excellence as well.
The Ateneo de Davao campus is situated at the heart of the city, but inside resembles an entirely separate city in itself. Numerous classrooms make up the bulk of the campus, each fully air-conditioned and fashioned so that students get as much comfort as possible during class. A gazebo area rests at the heart of the campus, where students could hang-out or study, all while being surrounded by the campus’ fair share of greenery and foliage. The students themselves are a mixing pot of diverse cultures, races, and ethnicities – with students ranging from the different regions of the Philippines, to the far-reaching corners of the world.
The needs of the students are addressed by a number of offices.
The good people at The Office of Students Affairs (OSA) act like a safety net to all of the students; whether it be concerns about your club activities or formal complaints, the OSA does its best to help you. The SAMAHAN meanwhile is the elected student government of the Ateneo. This friendly group of lovely people organize events and bridge the gap between the student body and the administration. The ever active university Athletics Department on the other hand keeps track of multiple programs promoting physical fitness and wellness, while handling the activities related to Physical Education as well as the school’s various varsity teams.
Everything else to know about Ateneo could be found at the Ateneo student handbook. This handy little book guides every Ateneo student not only in their day-to-day lives at the university, but with the rules and benefits that come with enrolling in Ateneo de Davao as well.
