5 Beautiful Schools in Northern Mindanao

Premier status, excellent board and licensure exam ratings, and top-notch educational facilities, are only a few good reasons to consider in choosing a school. 

But think about it! This will be your home for the next four to five years (or more 😉), so it’s important for you to be comfortable so you can easily connect with the community. And there’s no greater factor to consider than the campus scenery and experience. 

Here are five of the most beautiful schools in Northern Mindanao:

1) Xavier University Ateneo de Cagayan

Xavier University was founded as Ateneo de Cagayan in 1933. In 1958, the school changed its name to honor Jesuit missionary, St. Francis Xavier. 

Situated at the heart of the city, you’ll never expect XU campus to be a breath of fresh air. But it is! Its combination of green spaces and modern architectural buildings create a rich space for students to learn. 

In Xavier University, there’s more to campus life than performing well in academic. With the different school-based organizations, students can participate in fun activities, community outreach programs, and even theater shows. Campus life at XU allows students to cultivate their passion and leadership.

2) Mindanao State University Iligan Institute of Technology

Known as an academic paradise, Central Mindanao University remains as one of the country’s top-performing schools in Agriculture. 

The school may be called, Central Mindanao University, but it is located in Bukidnonfar from the hustle and bustle of the city with the cool breeze of the mountains. Central Mindanao University’s vast green field will refresh any student’s mind from the stress of heavy schoolwork.

The University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines nestles in an upland farming community of Claveria, Misamis Oriental. Strolling through this campus in the North is like a walk in the park⁠—green and lush open spaces, invigorating fresh air, beautiful scenery, and a peaceful environment. 

The school centers its instruction in the development of new technologies to help improve farming techniques. Truly, “environment + science and technology” should be the formula for better communities.

5) Liceo de Cagayan University
