DAGUPAN CITY – The University of Luzon’s (UL) College of Criminology has earned another laurel for its cap when its graduate, Joserwin Joy R. Brian, placed 10th in the Criminologists Licensure Examination given by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) last April.

A native of barangay Buenlag, Bugallon, Brian, scored 89.60% catapulting her to the 10th spot, which the school dean, Dr. Esther B. Vedaña, described as another lasting “reward” for the school’s uninterrupted progress in innovating smarter programs to produce responsible citizens whose lives are focused on the nation’s security, peace and order.

Vedaña, who is the college’s dean since 1994, said that “the national percentage of passing is 42.28% but “our school garnered a high passing percentage of 61.11%”.

“Because of this feat, “we will continue to be very competitive and intend to do better as always,” she pointed out.

Proud of its graduates, the UL’s president, Dr. Mac Arthur M. Samson, extended his congratulation to Vedaña’s “team of achievers” for a job well done.

Samson noted that “the result of the last board examinations proves our commitment to the high standards of the students’ education and an inspiration to continue this legacy”.

Brian also expressed her gratefulness to her family and to the people who “never fail to inspire and believe” in her ability, saying “the manifestation of gratitude doesn’t end with saying ‘thank you’ to them, for I know it will take time and effort to show it”.

Of the 13,873 who took the examination, only 4,688 passed, which were simultaneously held in the cities of Manila, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi, Lucena, Tuguegarao and Zamboanga.
