Trisha Anne O. Betito, a Political Science student, was selected as the winner by both the judges and the audience in the recently concluded Three-Minute Thesis Competition on 1 February 2019 at the Fr. Alingal Convention Hall.

The Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition, with permission from the University of Queensland, Australia, is held annually at the Ateneo de Naga University to cap the Research and Creative Endeavors Colloquium organized by the University Research Council (URC). In this event, students who have completed collecting data for their thesis present the most significant findings of their research in no more than three minutes. The URC believes that holding the annual 3MT helps in the fostering of a vibrant research culture in the University.
