Consistent valedictorian, campus journalist

Regel Javines PUP iskolar ng bayan profile
Regel Javines is the writer, editor, and owner of the borderless citizen journalism platform, The Philippine Pundit.

Regel Javines graduated class valedictorian both in elementary and high school. In college, he joined a progressive student publication while he was just starting off living an iskolar ng bayan life as a freshman at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP)-Taguig Campus. It is one of the campuses of the largest university in the Philippines based on student population—the Polytechnic University of the Philippines—for decades and history, it has been called the “bastion of student activism.”

Eventually, Regel became the editor-in-chief of the official student publication of the PUP-Taguig Campus, The Chronicler.

Despite battling financial struggle on the one hand and confronting a series of campus repression and filial obligations on the other hand, Regel finished his bachelor’s degree in Office Administration on time in 2007. However, he was not able to attend the commencement exercises due to an unfortunate event that happened to him almost a month before the graduation day.

MBA, M.A. Philosophy student

In 2014, he took the PUP Graduate Studies Entrance Examinations (PUPGSEE), passed, and was accepted to enroll at the PUP Graduate School to take a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a specialization in Marketing Management. Due to a lack, primarily, of sufficient financial funds, he decided to leave the graduate program after a semester.

Then, while Regel took his vacation in his hometown in Leyte in 2022, he applied for a master’s degree education and finally accepted to take the Master of Arts in Philosophy (M.A. Philosophy) at the University of San Carlos, a Catholic educational institution in Cebu City regarded nowadays by no less than the university itself as “one of the most respected higher education institutions in the Philippines.”

While attempting to understand both Life and Existence through the lens of gnostic spirituality and ontological mathematics, he decided to take an absence without leave from his M.A. after the two semesters, and at present, fixing things up and figuring them out and things in-between about Life and Existence.
