Dr. Bert J. Tuga made his first visit to Philippine Normal University – North Luzon as part of his campus tour being the new University President.

During the talk of the youngest President in the history of PNU system, he said that if students consider his story as a sign of success, then there are three things they need to remember. These are Character, Competence, and Opportunity.

“Now, as President, I always look into the potential of people. I always look into the character of people and when I see it with our people, I give opportunity for them to grow not only personally but also professionally,” he added.

According to Pres. Tuga, during his years as a student at PNU-Manila, he already had a dream of becoming the president of PNU but he has not expected that it will happen this soon.

“Being president at 36 is not an easy job especially that you are running a hundred eighteen year old university,” Dr. Tuga said. However, Tuga held that the advantage of being young brings a different perspective to leadership.

The President was accompanied by Dr. Lordinio A. Vergara, the Vice President for University Relations and Advancement.

The PNU-NL performing groups – Danggayan Cultural Group, Saniweng Rondalla, PNU Kalibnusan Chorale, and the PEMS Club presented a repertoire of dance and musical presentation to entertain the guests.
