Three reasons why I remain in UP

- academic freedom
- responsible and conscientious students
- psychic income*


*http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/psychic+income

Mema

I recently learned from a student about the abbreviation "mema" which, according to him, means "may/me maipasa lang". Abbreviation of a word or an idea usually emerges when it becomes commonly used or has grown into a widespread practice.  Labanan natin ang "mema". Uphold academic excellence. #huwagdinkakalimutanangsocialresponsibility

PAALALA

Maging responsable at mapagmalasakit din sa mga kamag-aral na napapabayaan ang pag-aaral anuman ang dahilan/idinadahilan nila.  Paalalahan at agapayan sila.
Sa mga mismong nagkakaproblema sa pag-aaral, dapat munang kilalanin na may problema talaga at ang (mga) sanhi nito.  Tulungan ang sarili at hayaang matulungan ka rin ng ibang nagmamagandang-loob.  Makakabuti ito para sa iyo at sa lahat.  Hindi ba pinakamabuti kung sabay-sabay umuunlad ang bawat isa. #hugot #huwagsayanginangpagkakataongumunlad
