1. Introduction and its Background
With more and more schools becoming technologically updated, the need for advanced equipments to be used during daily school activities such as report and seminars was indeed a necessity. Students are encouraged to bring their own laptops, net books and other similar gadgets in aid of their education. Good thing is that, we, at our institution are capable of providing such need. San Sebastian College Recoletos Canlubang is a technology-oriented learning facility. One of the ways this manifests is through the fact that students are allowed, or sometimes obliged, to bring their laptops to be used for reports during the class in the campus. The Property Administrator Office thus provides these essential equipments for our students. A certain process involving the proper reservation and borrowing has been implemented to avoid discrepancy and to maintain orderliness as well as safety of these equipments. This is where my proposed system attempts to improve upon. Since we are already dealing with computers anyway the proponents decided, why not this manual process become automated.
1.2 Background of the Project
San Sebastian College – Recoletos Manila, is a Catholic institution of higher learning recognized by the Philippines Government. One of the seven “Recoletos” schools in the Philippines, it owned and operated by the Augustinian Recollect Fathers.
Elegantly couched right in the heart of Manila, San Sebastian College – Recoletos, Manila was established in 1906 as a secondary school and was operational until 1941. It was closed during World War II and formally reopened after the war in 1946 with the Elementary and Highschool levels. The Institute of Liberal Arts was established with a two year courses leading to an Associate of Arts and Science degree in 1948. In 1953, the Institutes of Commerce and Law were opened.
Subsequently, several other course offerings and specializations were consequently added. A two year Secretarial Course in 1972; Banking and Finance in 1973; and finally graduate programs such as MBA and MA Theological Studies in 1976.
Coeducation was initially started in 1972 when the first batch of female students was admitted to the Secretarial Course. A year later, the entire College, readily began accepting female students.
The san Sebastian College – Recoletos, Manila envisions a continuance of its mission, vision and objectives for God’s greater glory. With this noble intention a new SSC-R campus operates in Carmelray Industrial Park, Canlubang, Laguna in June 2006.
A kick – off ceremony was held on July 16, 2004, Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, at the grounds of the Canlubang Campus which covers a 19-hectare lot area. The following year was marked by the Schools ground breaking rites when the first stone was laid on May 6, 2005 to signal the start of an extended and growing commitment to perpetuate QUALITY CATHOLIC COMMUNITY – ORIENTED EDUCATION of the dynamic generation. In relation to this History, the researcher would like to share and contribute to the mission and vision of the educational institution.
