Cebu Technological University

cebu technological university

I used to have a classmate back in college in 1990 who graduated from Cebu State College of Science and Technology (CSCST). When I asked what school he graduated from he replied, “CSAT”.

Although CSCST was its acronym at the time, it’s prior acronym was CSAT which means Cebu School of Arts and Trade. Most likely students then called it CSAT because it’s easier to remember and pronounced.

Presently, its name is Cebu Technological University through Republic Act 9744 under president Arroyo. CTU is a government-owned institution, just like UP.

Cebu Technological University tidbit facts:
1. Founded in 1911.
2. Became CTU in November, 10 2009
3. Converted CSAT into Cebu State College of Science and Technology (CSCST) on June 10, 1983

I went to a friend’s house located in Capitol Site to borrow a camera lens.

Going to Capitol Site, one has to take OPRRA bound jeepney, or simply when you see a number 15 , that’s going to OPRRA.

Cebu Capitol Building

I found old photos of Cebu Capitol Building i took last year of December 2008.

Cebu City Hall

Was taken during a holiday, that’s why there are few people outside. I miss this place. I used walk up and down the grand stairs when i did some filing of documents.
