I've read an article from the news paper this afternoon.It was about the big event that will happen this Tuesday on all UP campuses. This Tuesday will be the 100th year (centennial) of the University of the Philippines which was the first public university built in the country. It was built in manila late 1908 and has 7 constituents now at the different parts of the nation..
There were three big activities that were highlighted in the article.
First was the torch lighting wherein 100 torches will be lighted by the chosen alumni, students, staffs and present president of UP. The 1st torch will be lighted by the 100 yr-old living alumnus of the university. The 99th by the chosen student and the 100th by President Emirlinda Roman.
The second activity was the tree planting. 100 tree seeds will be planted around the UP Diliman campus.
The third was the free concert which will be graced by the UP graduates. Ryan Cayabyab is one of the performers.
Why am i saying all these? I was attacked by the green-eyed monster. If i only stayed in UP, I would have a chance to take part of the said event. Hay. I just miss being a UPian. Ibang-iba ang UP.
