Far Eastern University

Thursday, May 22, 2008
Last May 12, 2008, I went to FEU to get my cousin's transcript of records since she's still having her 2 months vacation in the US. And along the way, I decided to have some photo ops for my blog. Here's a brief history of FEU for all of you.

Far Eastern University (FEU) in the City of Manila, West Sampaloc, University Belt area is a non-sectarian private university in the Philippines. It was founded as a domestic educational institution in 1928 and incorporated in 1933, being the 6th oldest university in the Philippines and the 4th oldest, private non-sectarian university in the country based on its extant university charter.

FEU is a founding member of the 2 major collegiate athletic organizations in the Philippines namely the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA-Philippines) and the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP).

FEU was once dubbed as the "Largest University in Asia" with almost 50,000-student population in the early 1950's.

The university is one of the pioneers in accountancy education in the Philippines. It has programs in architecture, fine arts, the art and sciences, commerce, education, engineering and technology, graduate research, law, nursing and medicine.

Among its alumni are former Supreme Court Chief Justice Artemio Panganiban of the Institute of Law, business tycoon Henry Sy of the Institute of Accounts Business and Finance, renowned athlete Lydia De Vega-Mercado of the Institute of Education, among others.

One of the major additions of the FEU's facilities is the newly inaugurated Technology Building ll, a modern nine-storey building that houses FEU East Asia College and IARFA. Recently, the university received the UNESCO Heritage Award for having the largest ensemble of preserved art deco buildings in the country.

FEU is the first university in the Philippines to have campus wide WiFi coverage for its community.

FEU is also the first to implement a University Wide Biometric Smart Card ID system aimed to enhanced its security protocols. The FEU community is required to be fingerprinted and photographed for the generation of the FEU Biometric database that is integrated to gate computer terminals in which the biometric ID is scanned prior to entry to the university. FEU has been dubbed as the most secured University in the Philippines because of this security implementation. Visitors are required to submit any Philippine Issued Photo ID (PRC Card, Passport, Driver's License, SSS Digitized ID, etc.) for Filipinos and Passport for Foreign Guests at the FEU Security Department for issuance of an FEU Visitor's Pass.

The University also has ISO certification (9001-2000). (Wikipedia)
