ABOUT OUR LOGO

The logo was drafted by John Brian Villareal, our college secretary. It is characterize by a simplistic white design with black background. The white design represents “new beginnings” while the black background indicates “confidence and strength”. The pi sign placed at the center of the atomic reaction logo being the focal point of the pictures portrays the Mathematics and Physical Sciences as it plays an important role in our life and society as well.
