The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) livelihood program was started as a leisure time but knowledgeable activity for those faculty members who had a free time or vacant time and willing to make their own fashion accessory. It was around 2010 when Dr. Leonisa O. Bernardo, the college dean during that time suggested to have this kind of activity to make the free time of faculty members worthwhile. The faculty members were trained by Ms. Beng Obmerga.
It was in April 18, 2010 when the college conducted its first Accessories Making Seminar at Barangay Aliliw upon the request of its barangay captain Howard R. Cadiz with its aim of providing a livelihood program for the female residents of the said barangay. Another seminar was conducted on July 03, 2010 with the Lucban Association of Differently—Abled persons (LADAP) held at the CAS multi-purpose hall with the purpose of enhancing the skills and provide source of income to the hearing impaired participants regarding accessory making.
Later on, a lot of requests coming from the different organizations and barangays to conduct the said activity was received by the College. Until now, the said program that was started as leisure time for faculty members is continuously developing and helping people from the community to make their free time worthwhile.
