Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) is a global pandemic that has taken so many lives, affected so many families and have placed the world in a “pause” mode.
In Riverside College, the challenge of the situation has given the faculty and students an opportunity to do something beyond the limits of education within the four walls of the classroom.
During the third week of March, schools in Bacolod City ended their semester as cases for COVID-19 in the country started to rise but Riverside College continued with its remaining tasks. Through its pool of able and competent faculty, an immediate shift to Online Learning became hassle-free. For those who did not have access due to limited sources of cellular data and weak internet connections, an alternative mode was provided through modules that were personally delivered right at the doorstep of the students’ residence.
Alternative modes of learning allowed Riverside College to finish Second Semester last April 20 despite the challenges .
Summer Classes started as scheduled last May 11 and having it through Online ensures the continuity of learning for Riverside Collegians.
In this troubled times when the uncertainties of the future overpower the condition of every individual’s physical, social, spiritual, and mental well-being, Riverside College remains true to its thrust of providing students with the best quality education that they deserve.
Indeed, there is always enough potential to make things possible amidst whatever crisis or global pandemic.
