PUP Students hit BS Aquino’s Arc Project of Corruption

Matagumpay nating napigilan ang pag-apruba sa DAP-funded na PUP ARC noong Board of Regents Meeting, Setyembre 26!

Nagpatawag ng Finance Committee Meeting sa Oktubre 7, upang diumano’y kinisin pa ang mga detalye nito ngunit ang tunay na plano ay maaprubahan ang PUP ARC sa pamamagitan na lamang ng referendum o…
