RIZAL'S MEDICAL STUDIES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF STO. THOMAS Report by: Mary Jane L. Tupong BSBA 2C
Image of page 1
INTRODUCTION Having completed his Bachelor in Arts at Ateneo, Rizal was now eligible for higher education at a university. It was only his mother, Doña Teodora, who had second thoughts about sending him to school because of a bad premonition and the previous incident involving the execution of the friars and some other Filipino intellectuals. Although she was then later convinced by his husband, Don Francisco, Rizal’s father, that their son should go to the University of Sto. Tomas, an institution run by the Dominican order. As a Tomasitan, he then achieved various awards, had more romance with women, and fought some Spanish men.

A Mother's Worries and Opposition With the idea of the consequences for aiming greater knowledge, Rizal's mother, Doña Teodora Alonso Realonda, strongly disapproved of Rizal's wish to pursue education after he graduated with honors from Ateneo.

"Don't send him to Manila again; he knows enough. If he gets to know more, the Spaniards will cut off his head." Was her mother's words during their family meeting. It was Rizal's father, Don Francisco Mercado, who kept quiet and told Paciano to accompany his younger brother to Manila, despite his wife's tears.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
