De La Salle University-Dasmariñas celebrated on July 18, 2021 its foundation anniversary. On this date in 1977, General Emilio Aguinaldo College (GEAC) was established by Dr. Paulo Campos Sr. In 1987, GEAC was acquired by the De La Salle Brothers (Brothers of the Christian Schools) and eventually became DLSU-Dasmariñas after several name changes.
PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING FOR THE 44TH / 34TH FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY OF DE LA SALLE UNIVERSITY – DASMARINAS.
God of love and compassion, You love us with endless mercy. You call us to be your beloved sons and daughters and invite us to announce the Good News. You offer us the gift of association and to live with joy in offering ourselves in service. Holy Trinity, God of communion, make us faithful to our charism, zealous in our life of faith and committed to the Lasallian educational mission. Together and by association, and in a spirit of thanksgiving, we celebrate the founding anniversary of De La Salle University Dasmarinas, 44 years as an educational institution and 34 years as a Lasallian school. In the midst of the challenging times we are facing, fill us with a creative inner life that will relevantly and compassionately respond to the cries of the youth of today. Grant that we may recognize God’s Providence in our Founder’s faith-filled response to his call... We make this prayer through the intercession of Mary, Queen and Mother of the Christian Schools and St. John Baptist De La Salle, patron of teachers. Amen
