I got the opportunity to glimpse the campus when my friend who was studying here went for their screening for swimming. The place was Spacious and Quiet.

I can hardly recognize the changes. Love them but the place seemed cold and not as friendly as when I was studying there in the early 70s.

This is not your typical huge American University but they place is quite beautiful and everything seems to be in place. It reminds me of Dumaguete's Silliman University although Silliman is so much larger. We were here for a workshop and we stayed at the campus for a couple of days. We enjoyed our stay at the Gonzaga Mansion scaring... More

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
