UP is home to me. This is where I completed my BA, MA and PhD. After graduation I took on a teaching job at UP. It has been almost 40 years but I am still connected with UP. I love the intellectual ambience. I love the environment. You find almost everything in UP - excellent libraries, very good restaurants, supermarket,... More

I'm biased, this is my Alma Mater but 20 years later, I'm still visiting on occasional weekends with my young family. On Sundays with good weather you'll find extended families having picnics and enjoying the greenery.

I went here...so I had to rate it a 5 LOL. I guess times have changed and things are different now than whow it was back when I was still studying. Nowadays there are a lot of rules within campus..back then everyone was free. No class attendance, no uniforms, no need for ID's. I tried passing by one time and... More

The home of the cream of the crop of the country. Very nice campus for joggers and those who would like to take breath of the countryside while still in the metro. Just a refreshing place to trot and take a quick break from city stressed life.

Besides having grown up inside the UP Campus, my family is now a constant visitor to this haven I still call home. UP is all about nature, greens, secret paths, quiet neighbours and friendly intellectuals. When we need to recharge, we bike around UP. We eat inside the campus, we take walks as well. Pets are loved here too but... More

UP Diliman is our playground, an extension of our home, our sanctuary, our meeting place, our academic arena. We're here every day to avoid traffic in all roads except UP, here after school and work to rest from traffic around the city and after a busy day, here for cheap lunch, merienda or dinner.

Great for picnics, running around, or simply walking. It's also a good venue for holding events. And going on food trips. :)

Love my alma mater! I am glad the acacia trees are still there, welcoming students, faculty, and visitors, providing shelter from the sun and rain, and giving us fresh air to breathe in.

UP is the premiere university of the country, and has an expansive campus, with roads aligned with big old trees. a sunken garden, a mix of old and new buildings. The trees at the oval road could be Quezon City's remaining forest reserve. Nice to visit the Vargas Art Museum, the Oblation at the Administration Building, the Carillon next to... More
