UP Diliman Revisited: A quick, rolling tour of past haunts
It was a quick, passing thru.
See, my brother in law got this one-month old Sta. Fe SUV still needing more break-in miles. So where do you wanna go? he goes.
Hey, how about tripping back memory lane?!
Great! Let’s visit Molave!
Molave Residence Hall – or “Prison” Hall – in the University of the Philippines, Diliman, QC campus was where I spent some five years of my college life. It was my second home for what seemed like a looonng period of time. Since officially graduating in 1979, I have rarely been back to the campus. Been back only a couple of times. And to Molave maybe only 2 or 3 times…
My reluctance to revisit stems mainly from my trying to avoid being reminded of past disappointments and frustrations, of what-if’s and what-could have-been’s. Arduous and trying times. But, sure, there were definitely good times, too… and I’m being kinder to myself now hehe 😉
My Alma Mater…
Molave Residence Hall, where I spent a good 5 years of my 8 years in college! Haha!
Palma Hall – College of Arts & Sciences or “AS” as we called it then.
UP Institute of Mass Communication (UP-IMC) now called College of Mass Communication.
The UP Carillon, now called Carillon Tower/Carillon Plaza.
