I remember all the buildings that you've posted up in this post ... And of course, the fountain.


I loved the architecture of this building, amazing.

Have a good weekend!

Beautiful pictues! I feel nostalgic for my old alma mater. It seems so much cleaner and nicer when you're not preparing for an exam. :)

Simply beautiful, Senor :D it made me remember my younger days (not that I'm old na ha! *waving walking-cane threateningly* LOL!).

UST at night looks like a building in Europe. Well, it was built by the Spaniards so it is expected. Pretty cool shots eric. ;P

Very nostalgic for me. We used to live right across on the Gov. Forbes side. I noticed that the old Balete trees are gone. All ten of us in the family went to school at UST. I also sang in the seminary choir group and loved riding my bicycle on campus at night.

Napadalaw from Irene's site. I was just planning to lurk around but couldn't help and comment on the pics, UST being my alma mater. Lovely pics and one building I do not recognize which I assume is the new parking garage. Thanks for sharing these.

iba talaga ang architecture before ! they've a certain flair to them.. unlike now puro quadrada lang. :)

I guess practicality and efficiency ang goals ngayon.

Maganda pa din sa gabi...although hindi kami inaabot ng past 9PM sa USTe during the 70's kasi kulang ang mga ilaw at martial law era, nasa lakwatsa kami kaagad at uwian sa bahay before 12 midnight. 3M Pizza in front, then some saklaan and pula't puti joints before martial law.

Nakow, dami magaganda sa USTe at mga artista na nagaaral nuon. :D

Glad this post reminded you of the fun times you had at UST, Anonymous.

Oo nga, hanggang ngayon maganda pa din ang campus pero balita ko may mga pumapasok na ding mga snatcher kaya nagiingat na din mga estudyante lalo na sa gabi.

I am proud to be a THOMASIAN! Did you know that Mr. Rodolfo "Jun" Lozada is a Thomasian too.
I cant help admire the buildings of UST since I was a student in the 80's. I had been there 2 years ago and I cant help but still admire it. They had made excellent improvement through the years.
