There is no one-size-fits-all when choosing a school. Some students look for schools offering quality education, while others consider affordable school fees, state-of-the-art facilities, or particular learning styles (and the list goes on!). Which one tops your list?
Choosing your alma mater is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a student. When done right, it can set you up for success in your future career! The dilemma now is knowing which of the schools around you is the one. (We feel you.)
If you’re a student from the Rizal province or eastern Metro Manila, chances are, you have seen or heard about FEU Roosevelt (formerly Roosevelt College Inc.), at least once in your life. That’s no surprise though since RCI, now FEU Roosevelt has been around for decades!
Do you want to know more about FEU Roosevelt? Let’s get you started with these 5 quick facts!
1. FEU Roosevelt (formerly Roosevelt College) has been around for more than 80 years.
First established in 1933 as Marikina Academy, FEUR has a long track record of academic excellence. 87 years to be exact! Throughout the years, the school has gone through a lot of changes to serve the educational needs of its students.
From name changes to campus expansions and new learning approaches—fit for a new generation of learners—FEUR’s done it.
2. It teaches students through a blended learning approach.
Here’s a fact: teaching styles that worked ten years ago will not necessarily work on students today. Times change, and so do students! That’s why FEUR employs a unique method of teaching called the “Blended Learning” approach. Does it ring a bell?
Through this setup, learning is not limited to traditional lectures. Students like you get to maximize e-learning tools (thanks, technology!) and actively participate in extra-curricular activities for a well-rounded learning experience. Sounds exciting!

All hands on… the lab! Through this program, FEU Roosevelt Tamaraws develop creativity and critical thinking skills while learning the basics of science.
