◈ Studied BSBA in Financial Management
◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: It was the last option left. I planned to be in DLSU but I didn't get to apply within the scholarship period, and the tuition was costly. I did things on my own so it was a bit hard.

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: The environment is nice and relaxing. There are plants and trees everywhere. It feels safe inside the gates, but outside it doesn't. It also floods a lot, both inside and outside. Not all the professors are competent, especially the really old ones (no discrimination intended). The facilities are so far complete and useful, although I wish students can also use the elevator.

list bulletMy current job: None yet. I haven't applied yet since I'm on yolo mode. It was a tiring college life, I want to breathe on fresh air for a while.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I don't have a job yet, but some of my classmates have jobs now. It took them around less than a month to a month. There was enough free time between final exams and graduation for applying.

◈ Studied AB in Political Science
◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2010

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: University of Santo Tomas is listed as one of the best Universities not only in the Philippines but also in the world. I am in love with my school for so many reasons. It provided me with the best education in my chosen study. The University makes sure that they only hire the best of the best professors from their respective fields. Our professors are mostly graduates of the University which is a plus. They are very professional, they may be strict but this is to imbibe in the student discipline allowing them to be ready to face the real world. Our professors are also very approachable and friendly. In my course, we have built a family not only among us students but also with our professors. Inside the classroom of course there is professionalism but outside those four walls, we can talk to them about anything even about our personal lives. During my senior year before graduation, we would usually hang out with them after class hours. Our University really takes pride in its professors.

As for the atmosphere and facilities, I can say that my school is very conducive for learning. Our campus is 21. 5 hectares and each Faculty/College has its own building. We have almost all the amenities a student needs, a world class 6 storey library, a student center, a newly built sports arena a Church, restaurants inside the campus, and even a hospital. Each of the classroom is airconditioned and has a multimedia system. Each of the building has its own mini auditorium as well. Facilities are never a problem in our school because we are only provided with the best.

list bulletMy current job: Currently, I am a working law student. I work as a paralegal (legal assistant) in one of the big law firms in Manila while studying Law.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I graduated in March 2010 and I was already working by April. One of the reasons why I was accepted was because I was a graduate of University of Santo Tomas, which was one of the requirements. Most big time companies require their applicants to be a graduate from the top 4 Universities in the country, and University of Santo Tomas is one of those.

◈ Studied BS in Psychology
◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2006

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: My school is one of the top 4 universities in the Philippines, and I am proud to be a Thomasian. With the help of very competent professors and instructors, the Pontifical, Royal and Catholic University of Santo Tomas offers high quality education and training to equip students with the knowledge and skills that they need in the future when facing the "real world". It is also important to note that the facilities are state-of-the-art and world-class. Not only that, the university also aims to mold compassionate individuals, taking to heart and living out the teachings of the Catholic Church.

The atmosphere is very friendly - more like, you'd feel you are with your own family. You could feel warmth and kindness from everybody!

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: I really enjoyed studying in this University. Everything was Great. The Campus, the facilities, the classroom are well equipped with all the necessary hardware needed during class hours and especially the additional beginning with the inside restaurants and the Church situated at the middle of the whole campus.

◈ Studied Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Industrial Design
◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: First of all, I would like to say that I am a PROUD Thomasian. Our professors are impressive. They were also nice and sometimes you can just hang out with them. They teach you well, entertains questions and even when the class is over, you could harass them outside the classroom. Well kidding aside, I think my professors were really great. Our building, Beato Angelico is somehow new when I entered college. So most of the facilities are intact. However when I visited our building just a few months ago, its not the same. I know UST is still renovating because it just celebrated its 400th year, so I know the rooms will be back to its pristine condition. Also, I love our campus. You can hang out everywhere. There is also the carpark where you could eat different kinds of food. There is a lot of apartments and dorms around for your convenience, and cheap restos that are CLEAN & SAFE :) there are also a lot of stores around where you could buy all your school stuff. you just need to walk, no need to ride trics or jeepneys. There are a lot of trees, and like I said earlier, our school just celebrated its 400th year so there a lot of new facilities. Im actually jealous of the new students because they get to use the new gyms, new facilities and parks.

◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 1990

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: I love the variety of students in my university. Here in this university is where you get to mingle and meet students from all walks of life. UST's main building is a "classic" on its own. It may be old since it's the oldest university in the Philippines but that what makes it so respected. The facilities are adequate to meet the needs of its students. The professors I had been under were well-qualified and well-equipped with the knowledge and teaching skills. Some were even strict. The College of Science has a reputation of having strict standards when it comes to maintaining passing grades. All in all, UST gave me a quality education.

◈ Studied BS in Pharmacy
◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2009

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I choose UST because of it's prestige and excellence.

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: During my undergraduate days, I can say that UST had a competitive ambiance. You have to really manage your time to be able to balance all the aspects of your life. Standards are demanding but failure not demeaning.

Professors have different styles of teaching. Some are approachable, some not so good in teaching and some are really unfair in grading.

Studying in UST will give you a motivated attitude since education is expensive and competitive. You won't want to repeat one subject, cross enrolling to other course is not permitted. I suggest you aim high and pass that subject!

They taught me well, even those which were not in-tune academically. I am happy that I still get to spend some time with them now even after I graduated.

UST has provided the best environment during my four year stay. We were given the freedom to do what we have to do in order to produce good products. The community kept us safe, despite getting flooded during the rainy season. Once in UST, you can actually feel positivity and will be inspired by its lush greeneries and active student life.

◈ Studied BS in Medical Technology
◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 1990

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: College professors differ. Some were strict, some were cool, while others were unforgettable. Most of them, as I've said earlier, were authors of the textbooks we were using, so there's no way of fooling them during recitations. Most of them are alumni so they were college students once and somehow would understand your situation. Some professors brought out the talent in me. UST may be the oldest university in the country, 50 years older than Harvard University, but it keeps its facilities on track with the demands of the times.

list bulletMy current job: I'm now a freelance writer, work at home mom. I practiced the profession briefly and started writing in 1999.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Right after the last day of the board examinations, being a Sunday, I bought a copy of Manila Bulletin because of its Classified Ads. It took me a week to find my first job in sales. It may not be related to my course but I learned from it.

◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: The University of Santo Tomas College of Nursing is one of the few centers of excellence when it comes to nursing education. Also, UST has maintained its very high passing rate in the yearly licensure examination, considering the big number of Thomasian nursing graduates who take the test. Over the years, the college has produced quality nurses both here and abroad.

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: Generally, UST offers an environment where students can enjoy learning. There are several libraries and adequate computer facilities to help the students.

The professors/instructors at the College of Nursing are very competent and experienced in the various fields of Nursing. They make sure that the knowledge, skills and attitudes that students need are adequately communicated through appropriate teaching and evaluation methods. They would always tell it's students that Thomasian nurses are distinct because they have the 3 Cs -- Competence, Commitment and Compassion, which is the most important.

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: My course is taught by professors who are businessmen and consultants in the field of advertisements, communications, franchising, and marketing. Their experiences taught me more than what I learned in the books.

The teachers did not require oral examinations. They based the grading on the periodic exams and the projects submitted. The exams were not bookish. This kind of teaching did give me any difficulty.

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: The professors are great, although you won't like them all, they have different personalities, different ways of teaching. Listen to them in any way because they know the subject matter. ;)

It's UST... 400 years! You would be proud to be part of it even for just 4 years, the atmosphere is like you are part of history. But since we're living in the 21st century, it's kind of impossible for you not to notice the UAAP feeling everytime you walk around the campus! Aside from the athletes everywhere, the support of everyone, I mean, EVERYONE is really overwhelming.

The university administration has been doing well for the renovation lately, whether it's a new parking space, air conditioned classrooms, basketball court, or new building. This is to accommodate all the needs of the students, faculty, even the patients, doctors, etc.

◈ Studied BS in Economics
◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2005

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: Its a semi-popular school,
You dont have to explain what it is and where it is - people know it
You get hired easier and faster when your school is popular. Everyone knows that UAAP schools are like the IVY league schools of the Philippines. UST is where conyo meets the social climbing yet adept middle class. We can make pa sosyal with Shakey's along Espana or make tipid at any carenderia in Dapitan or P Noval. I graduated when the McDo was not yet built inside.

Our profs from AB are popular. THey always appear on ABS CBN news - because UST has the official neutral image which is PERFECT for mainstream media. We are not so aktibista as UP yet not so business / elite class as ATENEO/LaSalle - sakto lang. Keri lang the facilities - I LOVE OUR LIBRARY - sleep friendly. Our internet lab at the library is sooper fast. Haha! back to our profs - they are not so heavy as far as giving you a powerful curriculum but at least give you enuf motivation to do your best. UST profs are very appreciative - they commend you for doing well - positive reinforcement is their best method to make their students achieve unlike UP - yuyurakan muna pagkatao mo bago ka maka graduate. Di rin uso ang overstaying sa UST. Most thomasians graduate by their early twenties. Tignan mo lahat ng Thomasian mukhang fresh. UP mukhang tsinelas na pudpod at kupas - Ateneo mukhang Hyundai Tucson ni Daddy - LaSalle - well madameng becky sa LaSalle. Haha! Lahat ng straight acting na pa mean nasa Ateneo. Going back to our freshness! Hello! The last MS Universe candidates who almost won are Thomasians. Duh! Dapat meron na kameng College of Beauty and Pageantry dahl dyan.

◈ Studied BS in Architecture
◈ At University of Santo Tomas
◈ Graduated 2018

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: It was dubbed as the "best architecture school in the Philippines".

list bulletAbout University of Santo Tomas: If you think the administration is 'caring' and is maintaining a 'competitive atmosphere', sorry to say but it is just a facade. They're kind to parents and applicants... But to students? No comment. The students are friendly, though. They have a great student council as well. A section has students ranging from 40-45. The competitiveness actually depends on the kinds of people you end up in a section with. The campus is safe.

If you're interested to see an iMac with a Windows OS, you should consider enrolling here. The computer labs have enough computers. All of the classrooms are air-conditioned (this may be the reason why blazers are included in our uniforms because you'd freeze without one). The college overall is okay. The facilities aren't really that great, but it does the job. The university library had a place full of drafting tables before but they took them out. Aside from that, the library has a lot of books, but I don't personally go there that much because of the distance from the college building to the library. There are a lot of places in UST to rest and socialize (gazebos, Lovers' Lane, carpark). The library is a good place to study actually, and there are also co-working spaces and good cafes near the campus.

Honestly speaking, if you are good, and you get a bad set of professors, you'll have a hard time. There are professors here who goes inside the classroom and flashes a PowerPoint Presentation and reads it aloud word-by-word and leaves. There are professors that don't teach, but bribe you with high grades so that they won't be fired by the university (there's an annual evaluation where you can evaluate chosen professors). There are also professors who have big egos, so instead of designing according to your principles, you design for them. There are bad professors in this college, but I can say that there are good ones here. There are professors that evidently have the fuel to teach and inspire students about architecture. You'll be lucky to get these kinds of professors. One thing I can say is, every time your schedule comes out and so does the set of professors that are assigned to you, you'll commonly hear students in the hallways asking their friends "Sino mga profs mo" "Swerte naman ang bait ng mga profs mo" "Malas naman napunta sa inyo si _____".
