A Little Visit in UP Diliman - Part II

In the first part (A Little Visit to UP Diliman – Part I), I talked about interesting buildings that could be found inside my alma mater, UP Diliman. Now, let me show you some interesting works of arts that could found around the UP Diliman.

There are many works of art that are scattered around UP Diliman. These art works were created by students, painters, sculptors, and some national artists. The most popular of these art works is The Oblation.

The Oblation is made by the national artist Guillermo Tolentino. The Oblation located in front of Quezon Hall (UP Diliman’s Administrative building) is just a replica. The original Oblation is located inside UP Diliman’s Main Library. The naked statue is symbolizes the university. It symbolizes the student’s sacrifice in giving-out oneself in pursuit of knowledge for the sake of the country.
.

Aside from the Oblation, here are other interesting works of art around the UP Diliman:
.
 Sewing the Philippine Flag

This is statue of the three ladies stitching the Philippine flag used by Emilio Aguinaldo in declaring the independence of the country from Spain. It is located behind the amphitheater inside the Lagoon.
.
 Rajah Soliman

The statue of Rajah Soliman could be found in front of UP Diliman’s museum. It serves as a tribute to Rajah Soliman, who is one of the last sultan of Manila to resist Spanish invasion.
.
 UP Sundial

Located beside the building of College of Engineering and is still quite accurate in showing the time of the day.

So here are just few of the works of art that could be found around UP Diliman. I have missed many interesting paintings and sculptures. Next time, when I returned to UP Diliman, I will take photos of what I missed so I could share them to you all.

  6. Do you people have to pay to study in the university? Expensive? Is it easy to find a job there after graduating? Your university certainly looks very nice and impressive...

  7. Sadly, yes. My university is a state university but it is the most expensive state university in the country.

    The problem is poor yet intelligent students do not get the chance to study college. My university, years ago, is the university of choice of those kinds of students because the tuition fee in the past is not expensive. However, diminishing subsidy forced my university to raise tuition fee.

    Our unemployment rate in the Philippines is high. The competition in the job market here is stiff. So I could say that it is uneasy to find work after graduating.

  9. Hello Trina,

    First of all, thank you for visiting my blog and taking time to comment.

    So, concerned ka sa UPCAT or yung UP College Admission Test. To tell you the truth naniniwala ako na tsamba lang ang pagkakapasa ko sa UP. Kya nasabi ko iyon dahil hindi naman ako nag-attend ng Review Centers.

    Noong high school ako, sariling review lang ginawa ko. Nagpa-photocopy ako ng mga reviewers (nabibili yun sa National Bookstore) at iyon ang sinagutan ko nang sinagutan.

    Actually, mahina ako sa Math noong high school. Hindi ko nga naiintindihan yung linear graphs noon eh at saka nalalabuan ako noon sa parabolic equations. Pero nakalusot naman ako sa UPCAT at naging engineer naman ako.

    Pagdating sa UPCAT, ang kailangan mo ay seryosong pagre-review at paghahanda. Mahirap kung sa mahirap ang UPCATpero may chance ka paring makapasa gaya ko na hindi naman kagalingan sa Math.

    My advice is that you take the UPCAT. I-take mo rin yung exam ng PUP para may fall back ka in case na di ka makalusot sa UPCAT.

    Kapag nakapasa ka sa UP, doon mo i-convince yung parents mo na papasukin ka sa UP.

    Ang tuition sa UP ngayon ay 1000 pesos per unit plus mga additional fees. Merong tinatawag na Socialized Scheme sa UP at iyon ang ginagamit kung anong bracket ka papasok pagdating sa pagbayad ng tuition.

    Kung mayaman ka eh full 1000 pesos tuition fee babayaran mo. Merong iba 75% lang binabayad. Merong iba 50% or 25%. Merong zero tuition fee.

    So yun ang pwede mong gamitin sa pagpasok sa UP, yung Socialized Tuition Scheme.

    Kaso walang kasiguruhan iyon kaya I suggest na maghanap ka ng scholarships. Kung merong scholarships si Gov niyo or si Mayor try to avail that para may pera kang pampaaral.

    Hope my comment help you Trina. Huwag mahiyang magtanong kung kailangan mo pa ng help.

  10. Trina,

    Really really sorry. I just chanced upon your message duon sa Chat Box ko. Hindi ko nakita message mo dahil natabunan ng mga spam messages. Pasensya na ah.

    Isa pa, kapag kini-click ko yung link papunta sa FB page mo eh page not found yung lumalabas. I don't know the reason. Did you already sent me invite sa FB? Wala yata akong nakita sa Invites ko.

    Pasensya na talaga ha. Super delayed ang reply ko.

    Isa pa. I suggest na kausapin mo yung mga classmates mo. Sabihin mo mag-review kayong lahat for college entrance exams as a whole class. Ganun kasi ginawa namin dati. Kami kami nagtulungan ang also with the help from our teachers.

    Hello. You are back.

    Mababa yung grades mo noong 1st and 2nd years? Sa tingin ko ay OK lang yan dahil hindi naman papansinin yan sa computations ng score mo. Kung papansinin man ay mababa ang weight niyan.

    Ikaw lang pala magte-take. Well, kung ganun sariling ara l ka lang pala. Kaya mo yan. ^_^

    Oo nga pala, ngayon palang ay asikasuhin mo na yung documents mo kasi sa August ang UPCAT. Bago matapos ang June yata ang deadline sa pagpasa ng requirements for the UPCAT.

    Kaya mo yan. Basta mag-aral ka lang nang mabuti.
