June marks the start of a new school year and another batch of Asclepian hopefuls.
The Order received a total of twenty-four applications this year. Of this, twenty-two applicants went through the interview process held at Roxas Hall on June 13, and nineteen were accepted after deliberation.
After the duration of the screening process, sixteen out of the nineteen emerged as our new brothers and sisters on June 22, no longer neophytes but Masters and Ladies Asclepians.
The Order welcomes its brothers and sisters from Batch 38:

Classes resumed today, June 9, 2014, for both Medicine students and college students of the West Visayas State University.

Each student received 7 notebooks, 2 pencils, 1 pad paper, 1 sharpener, crayons and 2 envelopes courtesy of the the Bernasol Education Foundation.
Asclepians, apart from working hard to support the goals of the Order are also medical students at the same time. The bulk of our coursework adds an additional challenge for us in spearheading the Order. Thus, if you would like to help us out for our goals, the Order of Asclepius will gladly accept any kind of support from you.
