Birthday Brag!

Dear Readers!

Oh! It's there! My Third Birthday!

I was created to disseminate information which you can relish and use. I always had the best desire to brief you on the routine happenings in COST, achievements of our faculty, staff and students as well as topics of interest in the world of sciences and technology. I have tried to reach our alumni and seek their appreciation and help in recruitment. I have attempted to provide you with a glimpse on the events in the university campus and also reminded you of some of the quotable quotes.

I am glad I go out to all members of SSU family, alumni of COST, and probably to many other individuals (students, relatives and friends). Visit the website of COST to browse and fondle all my past issues again in the E-Bulletin Archive.

I thank you, the reader, for your support and the wonderful feedback I've received in the past year. I am really excited about the future.

With Love

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." - William Arthur Ward
