- ABOUT CSU
The Cagayan State University at Piat had its beginnings in 1954. It has undergone many different names.
It was founded as the Cagayan National Agricultural School (CNAS) by Mr. Mariano Manaligod, Division Superintendent of Schools of Cagayan with Mr. Antonino A. Perez as Principal.
The then CNAS was converted into a chartered college on June 17, 1961 by virtue of R.A. 3104 sponsored by the Hon. Benjamin T. Ligot, Congressman for the Second District of Cagayan, thus, it became to be known as the Itawes Agricultural College (IAC) with Mr. Antonino A. Perez also as its first President.
Again in 1967, the name was changed to Northern Luzon State College of Agriculture by virtue of R.A. 4893.
An in 1978, the college merged with three other colleges in the province namely, the Cagayan Valley College of Arts and Trades (CVCAT), the Cagayan Valley Agricultural College (CVAC) and Aparri College of Fisheries to form the Cagayan State University (CSU) system by virtue of PD 1436.
The school grew by leaps and bounds, so to speak. From a mere vocational high school, it metamorphosed into a state university, now popularly known as the Cagayan State University at Piat.
