Following tradition, FEATI University observed the 106th birthday of its grand dame, founder and president, Victoria Lopez de Araneta (VLA), and paid tribute to founding president Salvador Zaragoza
(SZA). Although it was VLA who was largely prominent in the university's day-to-day operations, SZA's looming support in the background was instrumental to the university's success. Together, they made FEATI University one of the most admired universities in the country. When Martial Law shocked the country in the 1970s the business of education, and the business climate in general, found itself on shaky grounds but FEATI weathered the economic storm and recovered largely because of the sound foundation laid out by its founders. They may have left this earth a long time ago but the FEATI family continues to observe Founders' Day on VLA's birthday, a day marked with celebratory musical tributes, speeches, cupcakes, and a huge birthday cake. This year, on March 7, FEATI was joined by family representative Ms. Ging Segovia, the lovely and charming wife of beloved CEO, Francisco "Fritz" A. Segovia.more >>

It was not that long ago when FEATI University paid homage to its graduates through the first College of Maritime Recognition Rite and Ring Hop Ceremony for its 3rd year students principally to send them off on high spirits to their year-long shipboard training.
