UNIVERSITY OF BOHOL – 75th ANNIVERSARY - “Transforming Lives for a Great Future.”

In celebration of the 75th diamond jubilee year of the University of Bohol (UB), the Philippine Postal Corporation released a special stamp in commemoration of the university’s founding anniversary, recognizing UB’s long and rich tradition of academic excellence.

Benito Quiros, PhilPost Department manager; and Dr. Victoriano B. Tirol, III, UB President, unveiled the stamp souvenir frame and jointly signed the official first day cover.  The design of the stamp shows the main building that carries the slogan “Transforming Lives for a Great Future.”

The University of Bohol was originally named Rafael Palma College after the greatest scholar of his time, the late Dr. Rafael Palma.

Its history is an account of how a group of public and civic-spirited citizens of the province of Bohol ventured to establish an educational institution to answer a long-felt need for college education by those who could not afford to study outside the province.

Rising from the ashes of World War II in 1946, the Boholanos welcomed with anticipation the birth of a local college.  The founders did not have in mind that the local school supported mainly by subscription from civic-spirited Boholanos would become the first university of the province of Bohol.

On December 11, 1970, the University installed Atty. Victoriano D. Tirol, Sr. as its first president. The Board of Trustees renamed the school from Rafael Palma College to the University of Bohol in honor of the Boholanos who value education as a treasure and gift.

The vision of transforming lives for a great future finds more meaning in the lives of its alumni and families, the living testimonies to the truism of the mission of the university to provide a holistic education anchored on Scholarship, Character, and Service.  (Leo Udtohan, Inquirer Visayas)
