Applying to the Ateneo

Choosing a college is undeniably a daunting task. Much of deciding where to go for college has to do with getting to know oneself. Many of the questions that come to mind when mulling over such a life-changing decision has to do with questions most personal to us --- What do I aspire for? What kind of person do I want to become? Who do I wish to serve? --- questions that are difficult to confront, but nevertheless essential to answer.


Despite the challenging and somewhat intimidating questions that must be hurdled, I cannot help but be excited over the promise that the future holds for you. As I take the reins of the Office of Admission and Aid of the Loyola Schools, it is with much joy that I introduce you to the Ateneo Way. Many speak of excellence, but few actually embody, live and breathe it. Let the Ateneo Way introduce you to a legendary university with a tradition of excellence that spans more than 150 years and a community of heroes, champions, and servant-leaders.


May the Ateneo Way be your first step on the road to self-discovery.



Dr. Jumela F. Sarmiento, Ph.D.
