Silliman Cited as Top Nursing School
Silliman University clinched the number one spot on the list of top 20 nursing schools in the Philippines.

The list was based on data released by the Professional Regulation Commission-Educational Statistics Task Force on the performance of nursing schools in the country in the licensure examinations for the last five years, 2004-2008. An article in the June 9, 2010 issue of The Philippine Star carried the list.

Silliman was ranked first with an averaged passing rate of 96.57 per cent. Coming in second and third are Saint Louis University (95.42) and Trinity University of Asia (95.06), respectively.

CAS Associate Dean Presents Paper on Student Welfare
College of Arts and Sciences Associate Dean Dr. Edna Gladys Calingacion presented a paper at the 15th National Convention of the Philippine Association of Administrators of Student Affairs (PAASA), Inc. on the student welfare program at Silliman University.
The paper outlined the University’s Comprehensive Student Welfare Services and Programs, sharing the Administration’s initiatives to go beyond the expectations set by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
At the time Dr. Calingacion presented her paper, “Building a Comprehensive Student Welfare Program through Strong Partnerships at Silliman University,” over the summer break in Iloilo, she was Dean of Students, a position she held until the term limit of five consecutive years.
Silliman’s student welfare program seeks to provide students with a holistic college experience for the attainment of their full potential. It responds to various needs related to guidance and counseling, housing, scholarship, crisis and prevention response, international students’ integration, and tuition loans.
In 2009, CHED adjudged Silliman’s student welfare program as Region 7’s best. Later in the same year, Silliman received the national award of Best in Student Services-Visayas.
