  1. I think it is better to say that suspension in DLSU is until Saturday instead of saying Friday. Grad school students have Saturday schedules, just so you know.

    • Thanks Lemir. We checked DLSU’s official Facebook account and the
      announcement there is that classes and work will indeed resume on Monday
      next week, August 13. That means you’re correct, even DLSU graduate school’s Saturday classes are suspended.

  2. I drop a comment every single time I like a write-up on a web site or if I’ve something to valuable to contribute on the conversation. It’s a result from the fire communicated in the publish I browsed. And after reading this report I had been in fact moved enough to drop a comment here
