The youth play an important role in our society – this Letran fully recognizes and it is seen in all the efforts it has given for the development of its young students.
At the dawn of each Academic Year, students become busy, not only in anticipation of schoolwork, but also to set up the various organizations that they involve themselves in.
Last June 13, Letran formally recognized 23 student organizations during a Mass Induction, along with the Letran Student Council, headed by its president, Communication major Sam Marcellana, and The Lance, the official student publication, led by Bryle Suralta, a Journalism major.
