University Life

You will never get tired of your university life here at the Mindanao State University, Main Campus. They call this place the “Melting Pot of the South”, where you can find different cultures in the MINSUPALA region and even as far as the Visayas and Luzon regions. This means that you are in for a different feast of cultures, foods, and celebrations.

Event and Traditions

Watch out for an occasional street parade, concerts, fund-raisers, and the likes.

Like every university in the Philippines or even in the world, one cannot miss the different events of the colleges and departments. May it be a foundation day or a simple fund-raiser event, you are in for a treat. 

Expect extravagant celebrations during the founding anniversary of the university, as well as events sponsored by MSU such as the recently concluded “Meranao Autocross 2023 Battle of the Champions” where different racing cars rallied for a cash prize of a 100k Pesos.

Student Activities

Students are the heart of the university. That is why their different activities are supported by their colleges. From acquaintance parties, to welcome parties, to tributes.

You may still be a student here at the university but your social life can still be in your control. Coffee shops are everywhere for your afternoon meet ups with your circle of friends. The golf course is always open for a more healthy way of gathering with your friends and families.
