In CSU’s quest to providing quality tertiary education to every Cagayano youth, the Launching and Groundbreaking of CSU Iraga Extension this morning February 7, 2020, marked the start of the construction of a new and accessible higher education institution for the students of Solana, Amulung, and other nearby municipalities.

University President Urdujah A. Tejada described the project as an impossible dream that has become possible through the persistency of Congressman Lara and the approval of the Board of Regents. President Tejada further said that like the other campuses that have their own niche programs, the Iraga Extension will specialize in brooding and rearing of fish species. Fr. Ranhilio C. Aquino, the Vice President for Administration and Finance, also shared that CSU’s Iraga Extension will offer academic programs in Teacher Education, Agriculture, Fisheries, Information and Computing Sciences, and Criminology. These are the preferred programs that were identified through a Feasibility Study conducted by a Technical Working Group led by Dr. Theresa B. Dimalanta.

Hon. Joseph L. Lara said that he is thankful to be an instrument of providing access to quality education in the remote areas of the province because as a parent himself he said that there is nothing better than for parents to see and embrace their children at the end of every day. Hon. Jennalyn P. Carag, Municipal Mayor of LGU Solana, shared in this view as she said that this project is a blessing for the municipality not only for students but also for their parents as transportation and commute would be reduced from their worries.

In attendance to the event were CSU officials, representatives from lined-government agencies, barangay officials, and principals and students from the feeder schools of the municipalities of Solana and Amulung. The 34.5 Million CSU Iraga Extension project is made possible through the initiative of Hon. Joseph L. Lasam, 3rd District Representative of Cagayan, in close collaboration with Cagayan State University as the mobilizing agency. The extension is situated along the Barangay Road to Masin, near the Solana Fresh Water Fisheries School in Barangay Iraga, Solana, Cagayan and is targeted to officially start classes by August 2020.
