The current school year was a witness to constructive changes and infrastructure developments across the different campuses of Cagayan State
University. A series of “circa 50” buildings, which serve not only as institutional facilities but as aesthetic icons, representing the university motto: “Educating for the Best”, are now in the final phase of their construction process.
Moreover, other physical facilities in the university are facing major rehabilitation specifically in CSU Andrews being the “show window” of CSU. Physical improvement within the eight campuses of the university is evident and is geared at developing and encouraging higher aspirations among its poor students. Modern buildings and comfort rooms were put up to deliver the necessary service to students all over CSU.

It was inaugurated on February 14, 2011.
