After all of the discussions, questions from the audience were entertained and answered.

Ms. Monette Locquiao, the PACC Director closed the event, expressing her gratitude to all who have made the endeavor possible.
Dr. Nhorly U. Domenden, the CSLD Director and Dean of the College of Human Sciences addressed the soon-to-be graduates, quoting, “Sometimes you have to learn the hard way. And the harder you learn, the more important the lessons are. If you can't find opportunities elsewhere, create opportunities for yourselves. If an obstacle stands your way, let that obstacle be the way."
