Three College of Agriculture (CAg) students represented Central Luzon State University (CLSU) in two international programs organized by University Consortium - Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (UC-SEARCA) in Malaysia and Indonesia from July 9 - 25, 2023.

A senior student from the Department of Animal Science, Carl Joshua E. Balmores attended the 2023 Asian Association of Agricultural Colleges and Universities (AAACU) Summer Enrichment Program with the theme "Exploring Urban Agriculture in the Heart of Metropolitan Cities," hosted by Universiti Putra Malaysia to provide an avenue to learn about current developments, practices, and technologies in the field of agriculture.

Balmores was recognized as Best Male Participant for his impressive performance and insights and was also part of the Best Group (3rd Place) during the 7-day program.

On the other hand, Christopher D. Regalado and April Luna attended the 7th Summer Course Program with the theme "Challenges and Opportunities for Livestock and Agricultural Production in Responding to the Issue of the Global Food Crisis" held at Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Regalado and Luna experienced the Indonesian language, culture, values, and engaged in livestock and agricultural activities including classroom lectures about theories and principles in animal science and agriculture.

Moreover, Regalado was honored for his exceptional skills in Javanese letter writing, and both of them received certificates of achievement for their participation in the 14-day summer course program.

All the students received support to attend these events from the university as a member institution of the UC-SEARCA network.
