“In Scientia et Servitio” (In Science and Service)
The Northern Negros State College of Science and Technology draws inspiration from the Christian ideal of service. The College educates students for leadership and responsibility defined in terms of service to others and society. A college education lacking this dimension is an education deficient in moral foundation.
