My niece goes to Miriam for Grade 1 and she was the one who actually got so excited about seeing the Miriam College signs in Nuvali last week. Here’s the memo we got from President Rosario Lapus just a few days ago:
I am happy to announce that the Miriam College Board of Trustees recently approved the proposal to establish another Miriam College campus in a 15-hectare property in Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
Summarizing the key points:
- MC-Nuvali is slated to open in 2014 with Grades 1 and 2, and High School 1st and 2nd years
- Higher education will begin on the 5th year
- Development will proceed in stages, and will take 10 years
- Campus site is 15 hectares in size
- Green features:
- 50% of the campus will be dedicated to open spaces
- sensitive to existing terrain, climate and environment
- use of sustainable energy sources
- water use efficiency
- waste management facilities
It’s very encouraging that more institutions are putting their confidence in Nuvali. In 5 years, who knows how this area will look like?
