Today is the exact day of the University of the Philippines’ centennial.  I’m glad that I might be able to participate in the Centennial activities for the rest of the year because of my job.  I’m not going to divulge anything more, except that I’m excited.

I’ve already said everything in my 100 Years of UP post so let me just post the lyrics of UP Naming Mahal for all alumni who might have forgotten it already or, like myself (blush), never quite fully learned the lyrics.

UP Naming Mahal

U.P. naming mahal, pamantasang hirang
Ang tinig namin, sana’y inyong dinggin
Malayong lupain, amin mang marating
Di rin magbabago ang damdamin
Di rin magbabago ang damdamin.
Luntian at pula, sagisag magpakailanman
Ating pagdiwang, bulwagan ng dangal
Humayo’t itanghal, giting at tapang
Mabuhay ang pag-asa ng bayan
Mabuhay ang pag-asa ng bayan.
