Insider tips about what future students should not miss: In my opinion, the dormitory is the best accommodation option for young people. If you want to live in a hotel, you should book two or three days. If you don't like the room, you can find another hotel in Boracay.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: It is better not go during the rainy season (Aug to Nov), as it is always raining and sometimes there is no electricity and tap water.
Other comments: The food portions provided by the school at lunch and dinner were small, for every student and we often asked for seconds, though, many students said they still were hungry.
