Touring USC

Me, at the entrance of CAFA building. Look at that goofy smile on my face, an evidence of my excitement.

August 26, 2010— I went to USC (University of San Carlos) Talamban Campus to inquire about the requirements and methodologies of transferring and the requisites for vying for Dean’s Lister. But it wasn’t just a query I made, I rode a shuttle, walked a tiring path from CAFA to Pharma to CAS and toured around CAFA building and Johnn Hopkin’s building (Pharma Dept.).

It was way back in January when I had thought on shifting from Medical Technology to Architecture. It took weeks of discernment before I confirmed my shifting. Ironic that when I decided to leave, I was finally close with people whom I had not spoken to in the first semester. When I finally felt more at home with the people in my block, that was when I decided to leave. (Unfortunately… T.T)Β  It was a tough choice. But I had tried to weigh the options and I realized I feel more advantageous and passionate towards Architecture than Med Tech. I have skills and love for drawing that I couldn’t use in Med Tech and I have creative skills that would do good in Architecture. Yes, I am a bookworm and would find my medical course not difficult, but to not put my skills and innate talent to use is such a waste.

I had given up my dream to become a doctor, but that’s because I realized I need not that ‘Dr’ title to be accomplished, my true accomplishment is pursuing what I’m good at and passionate with. I love science and medicine since I my Biology days in 2nd year of high school, but I had been in love with drawing and design longer. (That was ever since I had my hand on a pencil.) Design was always in me. I loved playing the SIMS and building those houses and furnishing it rather than having my sims interact with each other. I love skimming through my father’s old magazines of Floridian houses and Victorian architecture and conjuring images of my dream house inside my mind. Yes, all along I loved architecture, but I forgot about that childhood passion.

With a firm belief that I’d do well in Architecture, I completed my clearance and filed for a TOR which I can get from CDU in May and inquired the steps for enrollment as a transferee. I found out that I still have to go to the Main campus and go back to CAFA to take the entrance exam. The enrollment for transferees is still on June 8-11.

My New Department. Still giggly with excitement.

This is the CAFA lobby. Upon entering the building, I was like, "Whoa". There's a mural over there and it was just cool. πŸ˜€

Future Drafting Classrooms- I'm so excited to sit on one of those desks and work on my plates. Hahaha.

I know now where I'm going to spend my breaks. I'd stay on this balcony with an overlooking view of trees and houses. The best part of this would-be stand-by area is the cool wind.

I’m so excited. I know I’m going to do well here. I just hope I’d meet good friends here, too. I’ll miss the people I’ll leave behind in CDU. Though we won’t graduate together, though I won’t be a Medical Technologist like them, I will still consider myself part of the MT family ( I hope they won’t disown me.) Β I hope that I will have time to visit them and tell vibrant stories of my life as a CAFA babe. Hahaha.

  1. Hi! Im johanna and im from shs hdj. I already took the test for architecture and the sad thing is i need 4 more points to pass in my math but my drawing and essay was totally good. Thank goodness, they told me i still have a chance through interview. My interview would still be like next week or next next week. What should i do? Or do you think i still have a chance to pass because the moment i went inside the school lobby, i knew this is the school i really wanna go to and mold my skills.

  2. wow. I’m not originally from Cebu but I heard USC is one of the best school here in the City. And looks like you have a great looking campus. Med Tech to Architecture. hmmm. They are SO related. lol
