Mr. Baldos presented the brief history of OPO, the different major and minor fields offered under the Distance Learning Program of VSU, its graduate faculty, and the future directions of OPO as well. During the Open Forum, the VSU’s distance education students in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Japan and Thailand were able to ask questions relative to their graduate studies, and they were also able to give feedback to the services given by the Graduate School and OPO. One distance education student from Saudi Arabia expressed her satisfaction for the services extended by the OPO staff in facilitating her enrolment as well as in the different subjects that she enrolled. The event was made possible through the initiative of the University Integrated Media Center led by Mr. Ulderico B. Alviola and his staff. RJAOgalesco/GradNewsLine
