Now that I just graduated from college, I miss things from my alma mater dear which is none other than Cavite State University. And so, here I am to share some alaala and pabaon ni Kabsu that I bet you could relate to.
1. It’s CvSU, not CSU…
We always have a conversation like this, especially outside Cavite…
Them: From what school?
Us: CvSU po, Cavite State University.
Them: Ah, CSU…
Without that small ‘v’, our school suddenly become Cagayan State University (CSU).
2. The “taga – La Salle Dasma ka ba?” feels
For sure, CvSUeño girls out there have also lost count of how many times you’ve been asked if you study at De La Salle-Dasmariñas because of your uniform. Well, we can’t blame them since our slacks are almost similar to those of La Sallians’. But to correct those who are so confused, we often say, “Dirty white po yung blouse namin.”
3. The No Class Friday
We don’t have classes during Fridays but it doesn’t mean we are having happy long weekends. There are still some classes conducted on Saturdays.
4. May forever sa Kabsu…
Yes, you read it right. Forever exists, especially during CvSU enrollment. If you wanna be enrolled, it’s either you wake up early in the morning or don’t sleep at all.

5. The U-Games fever
This is one of the most awaited events for CvSUeños. It’s where all satellite campuses are invited to the main campus to witness the games and cheer for the athletes. While some students consider it as a break from the stress of academics, others take it as a chance to collect #kiligmoments. Who knows you’ll bump into someone and feel the sparks! Don’t worry if you never got to know who that stranger is! Remember we have this so-called secret files.
6. The Clearance Gaming
Put your game face on! Make sure everything is ready, especially the “signing of clearance starter pack” as what our one fellow CvSUeño called it.

7. That Last Song Syndrome from CvSU Hymn
Being a CvSUeño, I know you are aware of our CvSU hymn. Some of us even memorized its lyrics for whatever purposes it may serve. For that, to CvSU our faith goes on… right?
8. The Laya at Diwa Myth
If you’re a real CvSUeño, you’ve probably heard about the Laya at Diwa curse. Are you one of the CvSUeños who never took a photo with the monument for you are afraid that you won’t graduate on time? Well, I am one. It’s better safe, dude!

9. The “rambutan” ala CvSU…
I am also one guilty person here. I promise I’ve never picked up a rambutan but I’ve eaten one, and it tasted superb! How about you, have you ever tried the rambutan at CvSU? Nakailan ka?

10. The #walangpasoksacavite
Of course, we can never forget those cool announcements by #KuyaGov and #GovPogi! Have you clicked the “see first” from their pages? Let’s all be honest here, you waited eagerly for that class suspension announcement! Refresh pa more bes!

11. The MMK Story
You watched it, didn’t you? Are you one of those who posted “Watching MMK atm”?
12. Thank you Lingkod Kabitenyo
Did you forget to do your assignment? Did you need to research for something? Are you cramming at its finest? You maybe know this deal:
CvSUeño 1: Bes, may kailangan ako i – search. Wala ko net.
CvSUeño 2: Try mo sa Lingkod Kabitenyo bes.
CvSUeño 1: Kailangan mag – sign up eh…
CvSUeño 2: Pindutin mo ung “as guest”
13. That “hindi ka gagraduate sa CvSU nang hindi ka competitive” feels
Yes, it’s true. We live through our mission and vision. We can be called the globally competitive and morally upright individuals. For those who are wondering how and why we suggest that you study at CvSU and see for yourself. Up to the end, your being #competitive will be tested. Us CvSUeños know it by heart, don’t we?
Like me, I’m sure you got lots of memories from CvSU, too! Help me out and add some more! You may also want to share unique cultures of your specific campus satellite.
