I really wanted to visit UP Diliman and yes, it is a nice school. It is relaxing, you could stroll around, you could also have jogging and enjoy jogging with your friends. You could also see the different buildings in their school :)

It is the pride of the nation as the State University. It has ranked top along other nations' schools. I am glad to see improved roads and new buildings. Seems the new president is better supporting the institution. Sad that the old shopping place was...More

Rain or shine, UP is the best place to unwind. Jogging along the oval is one of the popular fitness activities in the campus. Its lush trees provide cover from the searing sun rays or raindrops. Grab some bites in front of the College of...More
