Best of Zuprome: Good Vibes Blog About UP Cebu

UP Cebu will always have a special place in my heart. During the four years of my college life, University of the Philippines Cebu has been my home.

Since I started blogging, I have always wanted to write something for the UP Cebu community. Unlike other universities with bigger population, UP Cebu only comprises about 1,500 students in one academic year.

Despite the small population, UP Cebu has proudly produced graduates who are best in their fields. During their stay in UP Cebu, they have created memories and to preserve these memories is one of the goals why I wanted write about UP Cebu.

Here are the blog posts I have written about UP Cebu and I hope that these will bring good vibes to your heart, Iskolar:
