The University of the Philippines (UP) is not only known for producing some of the finest minds in the country, it’s also known for its beautiful campus grounds. UP is like a city within a city, with the myriad of establishments and activities one can find and do.

If you do get the chance to visit this wonderful campus city, you may want to try some of these fun things out:

Run

The University of the Philippines’ main vein is an oval that circles around a big garden. Right outside the oval are the various colleges of the campus. A fun thing to do here in the oval is run. Simple right? Running along the UP oval may seem trivial for some, but it’s a fun and good way to familiarize yourself with the school. You can even join running and jogging groups in here. Trees are lined along the oval, so you can be sure on having a relaxing run. And with the benefit of being in the campus, you’re guaranteed a safe and fun run.

Bike
If you don’t feel like running, try biking instead. The University of the Philippines actually encourages this activity to its students. They even offer bike rentals for entire semesters. Not only is it a healthy exercise, it’s a faster way for you to get around the large campus.
