Animo -- a word derived from the Latin word "animus," meaning "spirit." It can also be translated in various contexts as drive, purpose, intention, passion, mind or even intelligence. Animo is a powerful and provocative word and the words Animo CESDEV so fittingly exude this power, this provocative nature of the volunteers of Community Extension Services and Development of the College of Nursing of UC Banilad.

Animo CESDEV, the CESDEV Spirit is unique yet so true. It is that mark that separates the student nurse volunteers from the rest of the crowd -- it is an animating drive to be of service to others believing that they are born not only to themselves but to give more meaning to the lives of others.

The CESDEV Nursing Volunteers is the spirit that keeps community extension services relevant, meaningful, and sustained ... for these volunteers have numerously displayed the drive, the purpose, the intention, the passion, and the intelligence for SERVICE.
