Saint Paul University Manila: A Trip Down Memory Lane

As I was cleaning up my drive this morning, I stumbled upon some photos from college. I cannot help but feel a bit nostalgic. After all, it had been my home for four years and I admit that sometimes, I miss the university. Anyway, I decided to sort them out and share some of my favorite ones here.

Aside from the Fleur-De-Lis Auditorium which holds a very special place in my heart, my favorite part of the university is the Chapel of the Crucified Christ. It is considered as the SPC Congregation’s oldest historical building in the country. During the battle of Manila in 1941, the Japanese army burned and blew up the chapel but the Crucified Christ–which is now the facade of the chapel–remained standing.

I miss sitting by the courtyard while I watch people and birds come and go.


Sweet are the days of childhood,
With friends we love and care;
Those golden years of childhood
Whose sympathy we share,
Do stay and while the hours away,
With us in work and play,
And when we leave our dear old school,
These mem’ries we’ll recall.
