On February 19, 2019, the NEU Curriculum Consultant and UNLAD International, Inc. Chairperson, Prof. Anita P. Santos, was welcomed by the NEU Rizal branch's administrative and academic staff including Brother Joey M. Red – NEU Rizal branch Director, Dr. Perigio B. Francisco, Jr. – College of Agriculture Dean, and Professor Luvimin A. Evangelio – College of Agriculture Program Coordinator.

Prof. Santos gave her helpful advice and suggestions in developing the agriculture program of the NEU Rizal campus. She emphasized that students should gain not only ‘learning skills’ but more importantly ‘earning skills’ through programs such as the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Bamboo Project, in which DENR provides rooted bamboo cuttings for students to grow in the next four years.

She also shared her experiences with the farm behind the Philippine Arena that involve planting, growing, and harvesting of good quality organic vegetables and raising of goats and poultry.
