CU Centennial

“The name bestowed upon this university is “Chulalongkorn” – it will forever remain with you wherever you go and in whatever you do – good or bad. For this reason, each time you perform any deed make sure you do so with discernment and have the foresight to weigh the benefits and losses…”
