Take a turn on the university's main road, and stop at the amphitheater. Don't miss the carillon tower with its 46 bronze bells, and look for the sundial, designed by alumni engineers to honor their alma mater.

  • For five months, I had my painting workshop here. This is the perfect place for landscapes and group activity since there are many open areas in the campus. It is an English speaking school and you can freely ask anyone and converse if you are a foreigner. The buildings are old looking but built in a sophisticated design. There are many cheap food stalls inside the campus too and budget friendly shops inside. They also had tons of activities for outsiders and for students!
  • I love the way they educate, the way they control their system, yet, they don't have international standards in schedules, sometimes the school starts at 6:30 and 7:00. It must be 7:30. Anyways, the environment is green, big fields, it's a big school, they offer free tuition if you pass the entrance exam, and it's also secure.
  • One of the best institutions in country that produces excellent lawyers and educators. The location is not only conducive for learning but it is also good for outdoor activities.
  • Great campus, lots of trees and open spaces which is condisive to encourage learning. Enough shops and places to eat within the vicinity of the university campus.
  • The best university in the Philippines. Many aspire to enter, only those who successfully passed the UPCAT can be admitted
