This school located in Sampaloc, Manila has great architectural design. Almost like those schools in Europe where its architectural design is inspired and built from Renaissance Revival style. It is the oldest and largest Catholic University in the Philippines. The land is very spacious and the buildings are just stunning. As it is one of the oldest Catholic school, you will observe that there are number of statues and walls are formed from the hardest bricks and stones since it was built in the early 1600’s. They also have a fountain which they call quadricentennial fountain. Prominent landmarks are Fountain of Wisdom, Fountain of Knowledge, the main Campus, and others.

Silliman University is located in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental. It is the first American School in the Philippines. This is the reason why buildings are built with the mixture of old and modern styles. It has one of the biggest library in Asia having an air-conditioned 3 floored library. The Amphi theatre which is the place for worship and other activities has a large space of land surrounded by Acacia trees. Only the benches are seen at the University Grounds which make it more spacious. The university is also fronting the boulevard in Dumaguete looking like a majestic university in town. It is also called the Campus by the Sea. As it is the oldest American school, students are freely able to choose what they have to wear in coming to school. People won’t judge you on that. When you get there, you can ride on a golf cart to tour around the campus! It’s free. Amazing!

This university is located in Dilliman Quezon City. It is the largest constituent university in the University of the Philippines System. UP Dilliman has a total of 493 hectares. Vast isn’t it? The area is occupies mostly by research facilities, some are grown by trees and some are just greatly occupied by green grass. What this campus would make it unique is its oblation and academic oval that faces the road. Academic Oval is the main and largest road in the university. You should take a shuttle bus to complete your tour around the campus or else you’ll find yourself tired in the middle of your sightseeing!

Although far Eastern University doesn’t have the largest of all lot to be owned and occupied, I am still fascinated by its campus. The trees make it more relaxing and laid-back as a campus to look at. Yes, the school is small compared to the above mentioned but this school good. It is located in West Sampaloc, City of Manila and other 4 places in Luzon. The inside campus has great floor tile and also surrounded by trees.
