My college friends and I decided to visit our alma mater to
reminisce catch up.
All things I regret not doing flashed to mind upon entering the gates of the university, but I set that aside and focused on that feel-good feeling that I get while walking in familiar grounds.
What fueled this visit was our curiosity to check out the new UST gym, which stands on what used to be a field for PE classes that involved balls (volleyball, basketball, handball and baseball). Perhaps it is for this reason that they littered each entry with these huge installations of round objects.
But taking the former field as the inspiration for the placement of these shiny things do not explain this next photo/installation.
Needless to say, we were not able to go inside the gym, so we proceeded in going to our familiar spots and see if anything has changed. There have been some nice improvements…
And there were some that might be damaged during floods…
A complete survey of the place revealed that not much has changed, except for new structures and some shiny new fixtures to make the school more pleasing to the eyes.
We had afternoon “tea” under the red umbrella at the Quadricentennial Park, arguably my favorite spot in the university for plenty of reasons.
Espanya will always have a special place in my heart. Wow, cheesy. Just saying this because people think that I switched allegiances ever since attending that school along Katipunan Avenue. Not gonna lie, but Ateneo has always been a dream. I guess there are reasons why God placed me in UST, and I am grateful and thankful still for the chance to study in my dream school. K, enough sap about schools.
Let me end this with something feel-good.
Don’t you agree, fellow grads?
