We were in Jaro and then headed to CPU to check out the university. It is a large, pleasant, green campus buzzing with students hanging around. Having spent the main part of our holiday kicking back in remote locations it was interesting to get a glimpse at what uni life in a city may be like.

I had the chance to see some rooms in the place because of an ocular visit I did for our coming convention. I find the campus quite spacious and I love the big trees surrounding the area. This is how I imagine a typical campus should be. I also had the chance to talk to the staff and they were... More

By far, I'm amazed by how the campus looks like: buildings are all predominantly painted eco-friendly green when you enter the campus, a field with mahogany trees at the side and a church at the end. Correct me if i'm wrong, but CPU is the 2nd oldest American founded and the first Baptist university in the Philippines and in Asia... More

A local friend in Iloilo went to school here and she took us on a tour. It's an absolutely lovely campus and a nice place to spend time wandering around enjoying the grounds. It's a nice walk from the city center, especially in the late afternoon when it starts to cool down.

Never thought I'd see my school here in tripadvisor. :) Anyways, for the future tourist, I truly recommend the month of December as the best month to visit CPU. It has christmas lights and food kiosk, such as bbq, street foods and fruit shakes. Back then (2005), a mango shake costs about Php20. I'm not sure now. Last time I... More
