In a time as dark as a pandemic, the true heroes shine the brightest: our medical and healthcare frontliners and essential workers, the people who risk each day to save lives, protect our campuses and communities, and keep the world safe for the rest of us. The University of the Philippines System and TVUP offer a tribute video to thank and honor the people who continue to serve despite the gravest odds, featuring an original song titled “I’ll Hold the Line,” composed, arranged and performed by UP Integrated School alumnus Ardie O. Lopez.
Soon we will see students from one of Japan’s most prestigious sport science universities teaching Physical Education in UP as Nippon Sport Science University (NSSU/Nittaidai) signed a Memorandum of Agreement with UP Diliman for NSSU students to teach here for 30-40 hours.
