‘Looks’ does not always come with brains. However, John Carlo Baranda or JC is fortunate enough to have both. He is currently on his fourth year taking up Industrial Engineering.


         Definitely, God had showered this man with many talents. He graduated first Honorable mention in high school and was the recipient of the Young Scientist of the Year award. As a college student, he has proven his charm and wit for both the academics and extra curricular activities. He won the Mr. College of Engineering 2004, Mr. PIIE 2004, and 2nd runner up in the Gintong Mag-aaral 2006. He also won the first runner- up of the Legacy of Da Vinci and recently hailed as the Tanglaw ng Iskolar 2007.

           Other than malling, he is also fond of reading books about lifestyle and leadership. His favorite color is green because it symbolizes abundance, sincerity, nature, and generosity. He likes eating chocolates, cakes, and ice cream.

           This simple man listens to rock music. His favorite song is ‘Zombie’ by the Cranberries. “Listening to that kind of music makes me forget all my problems.” If the curriculum would include a subject on Leadership, this person would definitely enroll himself under it because he believes that everyone should continue to quest for knowledge.

           The new hope of the College Of Engineering, John Carlo Baranda believes that “with good people, good things follow.”
