The Center for Community Extension and Development Office (CEDev) once again facilitated ten (10) College of Science and Engineering students and four faculty and staff of the Fu Jen Catholic University, Taiwan, Republic of China last January 22 and 23, 2011. The purpose of the trip is to provide students from Fu Jen Catholic University an experience to observe and interact with their counterparts like Holy Name University, as well as allow a cross-cultural experience in a developing country like the Philippines. The group was headed by Fr. Yoy Yparraguirre, SVD.

The visitors arrived in the morning of January 23. After having their breakfast, they proceeded immediately to the HNU Main Building for a courtesy call to the president, Fr. Francisco Estepa, SVD.
