I always pay a visit to my alma mater each time I travel to the Philippines. There are always changes but some things have not changed. What are new this time? Well, the lane reserved for running and walking and biking. UP students are now exercising their bodies and not just their brains. Also new is the dorm that replaced... More

UP Diliman is the Philippines' top university, used to be among the best in Asia (until budget cutbacks left it short of funds to maintain its world-class standing). It is situated in the Diliman, Quezon City district and was the site of a student commune in the 1970s when students and teachers took over the campus to protest the Marcos... More

It has its charm. Lane for pedestrians - excellent idea and a model for others to follow. Security is a bit of a problem. Tsk. Tsk,

Though I didn't make the trip with Dad this time, I made it a point to go visit his old campus. It's beautifully maintained and it's a historic site. I had a great time.

This campus is one of the best I have seen in the RP. There are lots of open spaces for jogging, walking, or biking. Of course the population is dominated by students going about the daily business of being students. The iconic carillon tower is there, as well as the century old Colleges of Law and the College of Education... More

I will always want to keep coming back to where I belong, and UP Diliman is one of those places. I even enjoy taking my kids there for playtime. UP Diliman is one of the best jogging places in Quezon City, where you can run around to your heart's content, especially during Sundays where they implement a no-car oval policy.... More

This university is ripe with Philippine history. But you need a well-informed guide (aka UP students/alumni) to show you around and discuss the stories behind the various sculptures inside and outside the school buildings. Also a great place for jogging/biking. Vast campus. Fresh air. Old trees everywhere to give you shade.

my favorite jogging track in the Metro! maybe I'm biased because I've spent almost 11 years here for my studies and first work. But aside from the nostalgia I get when entering the campus, I love the very picturesque and laid-back environment. best place to relax and kill time. it's home sweet home for me. :)))

SN xx-1506x hahaha! ever since i entered UP back in 200x, it can be considered as a community itself. There are residential areas, shopping areas, large grounds to do some sports, a hospital, a 2 chapels and exclusive jeepneys(ikot and toki). Now, despite the major change in the enrollment fees, it still serves its purpose-to provide the top education for... More

NOt only is this the top University of the country; producing musicians, engineers, and teacher - amongst others. But UP is also the center for creativity, health - running,cycling - food, drinking, everything! They have great movie festivals, cheap food, great food, HUGE trees, cool breezes, bird watching areas, fish balls, grilled meats, wide open grassy areas. Simply hands down... More
