National Bookstore College (NBS College) was established in honor of the well-loved bookstore’s founder, Mrs. Socorro Cancio-Ramos, more popularly-known as “Nanay Coring.” It was inspired by her passion to promote education and continuously help in making sure that the youth of today will grow in both wisdom and age. Thus, NBS College was built to continue the legacy.
NBS College was incorporated with five people spearheading its operation who share in the same advocacy and passion to produce great leaders and professionals who will make a difference in our society. They’d like to instill generosity of spirit, goodness, and kindness in its academic community.
The College now occupies the 3rd and 4th floor of the National Book Store Building at the corner of Quezon Avenue and Scout Borromeo in Quezon City. It used to be occupied by a department store called “Crossings.”

My nephew who’s moving up to Grade 11 this coming school year is still undecided about what he wanted to pursue in the future. He still doesn’t know what education strand he wants to pursue. He’s fickle minded lately because one minute he’d say he wants to pursue culinary, then criminology and later a career in information technology or perhaps animation.
My advice for Kyle is that he must think about it seriously. He must also weigh on what particular things he likes and dislikes and where he excels as well as what are his waterloo. As for me, my main role is to fully equip him with the things he needs for middle school. I’m here to support him in whatever education strand he wishes to pursue.
Since it will only be a couple of years before Kyle plunges into college, I decided to check out what's at NBS College so that it might just be one of our options for Kyle's college education in the near future.
One thing I've found out, NBS College is conducive to learning. Check out the classrooms as well as the ratio of students per class.
