The land, that used to be occupied by the Mabinay Institute of Technology, will become the property of NORSU Mabinay Campus as its School for Agriculture and Forestry, Uy said.
The donation is a welcome development for the town to have a school that focuses on agriculture and forestry, considering that Mabinay is a highly agricultural area, he added. Students from Mabinay will no longer have to travel to Dumaguete to study agriculture.
Another land area set to be donated to NORSU is the eight-hectare property owned by the government in Barangay Paniabonan, Mabinay. Part of the land has been occupied by the Paniabonan High School, that would be a suitable area for another university campus, the mayor said.
Sojor said the university can now plan the development of the campus for its school buildings and important structures. He added that he is eyeing to convert the eight-hectare Paniabonan area as the NORSU Mabinay Main Campus 1. (The Visayan Daily Star)
