The Eastern Samar State University is a state university in the Philippines with main campus located in Borongan, Eastern Samar. It has satellite campus in Maydolong, Eastern Samar.

History[edit]

Founded On February 14, 1960 ( as the Eastern Samar National Regional Agricultural School – ESNRAS) through R.A. 2434. Some 120 Students held sessions in a rented building in Borongan. The school was later established in Malbog, far-flung barrio of Borongan, reach only by climbing steep mountains and by crossing creeks.

In 1967, the school was resettled to its present between the Barangays of Tabunan and Maypangdan, some seven kilometers away from the provincial capital city of Borongan.

The school was converted into the Eastern Samar Junior Agricultural College (ESJAC) in 1973 to meet the clamor for the offering of the collegiate courses. ESJAC promptly opened a program in Associate in Agriculture and later Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (BSA) when it became Eastern Samar College of Agriculture (ESCA) in 1978.

ESCA was converted into the Eastern Samar State College (ESSC) by virtue of B.P 394 on May 18, 1993. This conversion eventually paved the way to rapid expansion in program offerings with courses in teacher education, vocational post-secondary education, business and commerce, engineering and law.

Republic Act 8292, enacted on June 6, 1997 mandated the CHED Supervised Higher Education Institution of a province to be integrated in a State College or a University (SUC) System. ESSC Guiuan (Formerly Felipe Abrigo National memorial College of arts and Trade), ESSC Salcedo (Formerly Southern Samar College of Agriculture, Science and Technology) and ESSC Can-avid (Formerly Can-avid National and Agriculture College) were integrated into Eastern Samar State College in Borongan .

On August 7, 2004, R.A. 9312 was signed into law by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, converting ESSC into a University call Eastern Samar State University, which furthermore integrated the Maydolong National Agricultural School into the new University. Congressman Marcelino C. Libanan introduced the conversion bill in 2003 during the 12th congress, and Senator Francis N. Pangilinan sponsored it in the Senate.
