The celebration kicked off with a Thanksgiving Mass at the University Cultural Complex, 7:30 a.m. with Fr. Clyde B. Flores, university chaplain, celebrant, followed by an All University Academic Convocation with NORSU President Dr. Henry A. Sojor as speaker.

Other activities slated today are the oath taking of federated NORSU student government officers for school year 2010-2011; repertoire of talents of students; and fellowship luncheon of faculty, staff, administrators and guests.

The House of Representatives and the Senate on June 10, 2004 passed Republic Act No. 9299 known as “An Act Converting Central Visayas Polytechnic College (CVPC) to Negros Oriental State University.”

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo then signed this on June 25, 2004.

The bill was sponsored by then Congressman Herminio G. Teves et al in the House of Representatives and by then Senator Sergio Osmena lll in the Senate.

Said bill involved the integration of other institutions in the province: Genaro Goni Memorial College (GGMC) in the City of Bais, the Siaton Community College (SCC) in the Municipality of Siaton, and the Mabinay Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Municipality of Mabinay.

Dr. Sojor served his first term as Norsu president from August 19, 2004 to July 12, 2008. He was reappointed by the Board of Regents to a second term from July 13, 2008 to July 12, 2012. (PIA/Rachelle Nesia)
