Student Services

In order to ensure the total development of Assumption students, the College provides and implements student personnel services which promote growth of persons-in-community, develop leaders, and foster an environment of mutual trust and respect, concern and freedom in the campus.

Guidance

The Guidance Program aims to serve the needs of individual students in terms of holistic growth and development. It is designated to assist the student in adapting to life challenges, decision making and developing a sense of service so that in turn, she may contribute to the growth and development of others in the community in which she lives.

The program is preventive, developmental and humanistic in nature. Year level programs are based on developmental personal, social, educational and career needs to cultivate a well functioning individual. The Assumption student is helped in the following areas: adjustment to college life; gaining deeper self-knowledge and understanding; identifying and enhancing personal and social skills; confidence in decision making; educational and career planning; and implementing transformative career goals. Programs are stem from student needs.

The guidance services are:

    • Counseling. Counseling is aimed at helping the student discover and develop her abilities, interests, as well as potential in the area of personal and academic management. Social adjustment and personal problems are attended to. At the same time, counseling aims to help the student become aware of her strengths as she fully develops them and improve on weaknesses to be empowered to the best person she can be.

    • Assessment. According to each year level’s thrust valid and reliable psychological tests are administered by the psychometrician and results are interpreted by the counselors/mentors for the student to gain a realistic appraisal of her strengths, weaknesses, abilities, interest, and personality. Special assessment may be requested for career, emotional and developmental needs.

    • Information. Educational career as well as personal-social information materials are made available for the student to gain a realistic view of herself and of the world, and to help her discover her options that allows for independent decisions. This may be accessed in the guidance office and their official social network accounts. Incoming college students and their parents alike are provided pertinent facts and guidelines upon their entry in college.

    • Consultation. The year-level counselors/mentors, aside from counseling students, are also available for consultation by administration, faculty and parents in order to maximize student progress.

    • Placement. Hand in hand with the Career Management and Alumnae Relations (CMAR) Office, the Counselors/Mentors help the student in implementing realistic career goals, either for employment or for further studies.

    • Research. Student Profile based on results of group data and psychological test results are done yearly and presented to faculty. It serves as empirical program planning for improvement of teaching methodologies, curriculum planning, and program planning. Descriptive researches may be conducted like correlation studies and surveys to enhance services given to students.

    • Peer Facilitators. Paraprofessional training are given to Peer Facilitators of Assumption (PFA) members to enable them to be service oriented as they support and the activities and programs of the guidance center. This is an opportunity to belong to a circle of friends who provide personal and group enrichment.

    • International Students of Assumption (ISA). They are students of international descent or have lived abroad. The program assists in the development of students with foreign background through communication and interaction to promote international peace and harmony. The mission of ISA is to build unity and to enrich each member’s culture for the common good.

Student Activity Center

Complementing the Academic Program are different programs for students coordinated by the Office of Student Affairs. These cover both extracurricular activities through the Assumption Student Council and Student Organizations as well as co-curricular activities which are coordinated with Department Chairpersons. Activities are geared towards the total development of students and to their education in community living and leadership. Each student organization at Assumption College has its own unique quality. Aside from complementing the Academic Program, what binds all organizations together and gives them the mark of Assumption education is the thrust towards SERVICE AND SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION. Integrated in their programs are opportunities for the students to give of themselves by sharing time, talents and resources as well as learning from the less privileged sector of society .

The Dean of Student Affairs, through the Student Activities Coordinator (SAC), has overall supervision of all activities. Since co-curricular activities are intended to complement the educational program, students are encouraged to participate in the educational, cultural, and social, religious, and other activities programmed by the College; however, such activities may not be conducted during class hours. Exceptions may be made for noteworthy activities, only with the expressed permission of the Department Dean through the Dean of Student Affairs, if endorsed by the Department Chairperson or unit head.

For their integral formation, students are required to join at least one (1) major student organization and initiate worthwhile activities. Extra-curricular activities, however, are intended to supplement studies, not to interfere with them; hence, the College reserves the right to limit, exclude or suspend participation in activities if it has been determined that a student needs to devote more time to her studies.

All co-curricular and extra-curricular activities within or outside the campus should have the prior approval of the school. All extra-curricular activities must have a project proposal to be submitted to the SAC at least two weeks before the scheduled activity. The SAC may approve and endorse proposals to the DSA.
