Nice university campus which includes a grade school. The university provides a diverse curriculum which include medical and engineering. The library is impressive probably one of the largest in the area. The campus is large with the center a football/soccer field. One can take a nice walk around campus to see all the buildings and experience campus life.

Call me bias, but for me this is one of the best school in the Philippines. The school with the biggest and complete library in Iloilo.

So far the biggest campus I've visited in Iloilo. The ambiance is very cozy, very relaxing. Lots of trees in the surroundings. They have a very nice butterfly garden, big library with a helipad, a university church and a very big auditorium. Students are very nice. Staff are very approachable.

Just something to pass the time. Check out some of the older and more interesting buildings. It's a great place to just hang out. They do have Christmas displays around the Christmas seasons.

CPU is one of the oldest universities in the Philippines. Upon entering the school, one can see a very big football ground surrounded by acacia trees. It always brings back good memories way back in college. If you are into books, you may visit the Henry Luce Library which is considered the largest library in Western Visayas. It so nice... More
