The feel, the beach, the sunset, Mt. Pangasugan, the people, everything just feels like it's part of a blissful nostalgia I can't explain. The landmarks and the whole aesthetic of VSU is superb up to the tiniest details. A must-visit for sure!

We rented a small dorm room there, and the student staff treated us very well. The campus was still under repair, but usable.
