Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. thanked the Thomasian community for topping a survey conducted by The Varsitarian, the official student publication of the University of Santo Tomas (UST).
The random sampling among the more than 40,000 students was held from Oct. 26 to Dec. 10, 2015, with 1,366 respondents participating.
The students were asked who they would vote for Vice President if the elections were held on the day of the survey.
Marcos was the top choice, garnering 29 percent.
The senator has pushed for the granting of full scholarships for students of all State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) to bolster the Iskolar ng Bayan Act of 2015 which only provided grants to top graduates of all public high schools.
“Bibigyan ko ng halaga ang pagtitiwalang ito na ipinagkaloob niyo sa akin. Marami pa akong gustong gawin para sa inyong kapakanan at kinabukasan pati na rin sa inyong mga pamilya at sa buong sambayanan (I will give justice to the trust you have bestowed on me. I have many plans not only for you but for your families and the entire nation),” Marcos told the UST students.
