University of the Philippines

Already nearing its 100th year, the University of the Philippines still holds the accolade of being the premier university of the country. Symbolized by the Oblation, UP is characterized by its freedom for its students, which are notoriously labelled as activists and radicals because of the freedom given.

Already nearing its 100th year, the University of the Philippines still holds the accolade of being the premier university of the country. Symbolized by the Oblation, UP is characterized by its freedom for its students, which are notoriously labelled as activists and radicals because of the freedom given.

On a lomographic note, the state university has lush greenery and plenty of sculptures made by its Fine Arts wing. One of its main draws is the Sunken Garden where football games and concerts are held. Students and outsiders alike are drawn here because of the carefree atmosphere and the cheap food which is aplenty. No permit is needed to take pictures but there is a curfew for night photography of 10 pm. To get to the university, you can take a Jeepney going directly to UP from designated stops in the Metro.
