A sweet spot in QC

I love the whole campus because there are lots of trees, historic buildings and the Sunken Garden. It's awesome.

I Love the Diliman campus so much, it holds so many wonderful memories for me.

Love this campus so much, especially the oval with the trees. I came here and had a peaceful walk on a Sunday morning in January when the grass was still beautifully green. This place is great for peace seekers who want to escape the busy life in the city. There are many activities you can do here: having a picnic,... More

I love going to UP. It is a great school that produces some of the best minds in the country. The campus is pretty vast and it is like a city on its own. It has dorms, food outlets and even churches. UP is the best university in the Philippines.

UP is a very good place to rediscover nature because it is a walking university. While the campus covers over 400 hectares, it is well-strewn with centuries-old trees that provide a lovely canopy for joggers and cyclists. It lends a romantic feel for couples or families or even just friends who enjoy a nice long walk from here to there.... More

This university is renowned all over the world because of its high class academic standards and the graduates it produce! I am not an alumnus of this institution but, I love and often go to this place to jog! It is safe and gives a nice shade for joggers in the academic oval. So you may jog anytime with less... More

The University of the Philippines is one of the best schools in Asia. Its student population are called 'skolar ng bayan' (scholar of the nation). To be one, way above average scholastic standing must be maintained through out the course. The huge campus provides everything a scholar needs, chapel,gym, theatre, dormitories, low cost,(but fun) eats, coop store, fresh market and... More

There are very few campuses in the Philippines that are worth an actual visit, UP is one of them. As the premier university in this country, it is blessed with really good building architecture, a beautiful tree-line academic oval, a bustling student population and a couple of great stops within the university. Pass by the Vargas Museum for an appreciation... More

This review is quite late. The University of the Philippines is a state university with main campus in Quezon City and other branches in different parts of the country. It is one of the finest institutions of learning with graduates finding their way to the top positions in government and private institutions.
