It was a “1 Million Peso” surprise for Top 8 Civil Engineer Board Passer Mr. Archimedes Martinez when Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU), his alma-mater, gave him a 1 Million cash reward for his achievement.
It was beyond a token of recognition as this symbolic appreciation is the start of what can be called “Success the MLQU Way“. Starting this 2017, all Top Board Passers for any course in MLQU shall be rewarded with 1 Million Pesos as well!
1 Million MLQU Success
Celebrated in an event held at the Victoria Sports Tower Station 2, last June 6, 2017, what was supposedly a simple night of testimonies from recent top notchers of MLQU from different courses, became a milestone surprise.
The said event is a celebration of the success and achievements of MLQU graduates who have exhibited exemplary performance during the recent Board and Bar Examinations.
Engr. Martinez, a BS Civil Engineer graduate from Manuel L. Quezon University, ranked 8th with a rating of 92.65 percent based on results posted by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) last May 11, 2017.

Success the MLQU Way
This is MLQU’s way to motivate its aspiring students to be committed and to continue to strive for excellence.
During the early years of MLQU, the university is known to produce high caliber graduates, some of which are bar topnotchers who are now experts and pillars in various industries. And as the years passed, MLQU had its fair share of trials and challenges that it had to surpass to keep its notable reputation.
In 2014, the New San Jose Builders Inc. acquired MLQU which ignited a vision of getting back on track and building the culture of excellence and legacy of becoming an outstanding academic institution. Since then MLQU, under the new management, has been very committed in regaining its glory.
Watch here the inspiring speech of MLQU President Dr. Isagani Germar in the Testimonial Dinner Night:
MLQU will continue to hone individuals who are capable of producing exemplary and notable works. MLQU is continuously beefing up its roster of faculty members and deans who are known practitioners from their respective industry.
Adding to the list of MLQU notable deans are former Chief Justice Reynato Puno, Regent & Dean Emeritus College of Law; former Supreme Court Associate Justice Jose Perez, Dean School of Law; Professor Eric Soriano, Dean School of Accountancy, Business and Real Estate Management; and DPWH Undersecretary Raul Asis and former UP Dean of Architecture Danilo Silvestre, special lecturers to name a few.
Alongside the enhancement of MLQU facilities and faculty, the basic education program for kindergarten to senior high will be offered at MLQU SPACE this June.
