© The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology. This program endeavoured to integrate the Life of St. John Baptist De La Salle in the De La Salle Health Sciences Institute curriculum and contextualize and live out the Lasallian Guiding Principles. Specifically, it aimed to: (1.) Orient the incoming freshman and sophomore students about the life of Life of St. John Baptist De La Salle and the existence of the LGP; (2.) Involve all incoming freshman and sophomore students in the discussion of the Lasallian Guiding Principles through the different programs, team building activities and individual/group presentations and sessions; (3.) Contextualize and live out all lessons learned from the discussion on the life of Life of St. John Baptist De La Salle and conduct Lasallian Guiding Principles; and (4.) Assess/evaluate the implementation of the Intro to La Salle and Lasallian Guiding Principles sessions. The rating scores show that the conduct of Day 1-The Person Session and Day 2-The Inspiration far exceeded the expectations of the first and second year students of DLSHSI. The study also shows that the programs for Day 3-The Association, how the execution and delivery was done, how the facilitators delivered the program, were evaluated excellently. This could be attributed to the materials used during the program, the activities performed by the students and the line-up of facilitators. The excellent rating of the 7 items is a proof that the discussion of the Lasallian Guiding principles slated during Day 4-The Mission was indeed very important for the respondents and that they were all mindful of the contents and details of the said presentations. This day 4 also completed the theoretical foundations of the students vis-à-vis the presentation of their final outputs which is an advocacy video. The excellent mean score clearly shows how successful the conduct of the session had become and how the students enjoyed and loved watching their own outputs, Advocacy Video. Finally, the excellent rating for the conduct of the Intro to La Salle and the contextualization and living out of the Lasallian Guiding Principles sessions clearly shows that the Institute is responsive to the needs of the students and that the integration of such to the curriculum effects positive change into the lives of the students.
