Masterson Avenue is the road which connects uptown Cagayan de Oro to the city proper or downtown area.
It is named after Fr. William F. Masterson, SJ, the founder of Xavier University’s College for Agriculture, which also hosts the internationally acclaimed South East Asia Rural Social Leadership Institute (SEARSOLIN), which trains leaders from South East Asia, China, Korea, Africa and Oceania to address the problems of rural societies. He was director of SEARSOLIN from 1964 until his death in 1984. SEARSOLIN is located along this road.
