Everyone looks forward to the development of these freshies from guinea pigs to scientists. With the application of the new I.D sling and improved facilities, this year’s freshmen are certainly fortunate to have a good start in college.
The freshmen aren’t the only new faces in the Velezian community. A number of new teachers are here to mold the students to become the best. These teachers make up the spine of the quality of education in Velez College. The knowledge and expertise they impart to the students are the foundation of the future professionals who can make a change in this world.

All teams are full in practice waiting for that one week in a year where they can play. Founder’s Day shouldn’t be forgotten as well. A new reign will take over once Mr. and Ms. Velez 2014 takes the stage.
A sense of belonging can never be ignored. This year in Velez, student organization are more active and present than ever. Study isn’t the only development in this institution. The interests, talents and skills are also honed in the different organizations that are open to all bonafide Velezian students.
