“Quezon is Home” @ MLQU

Having been a Quezon City resident since I was a kid has made QC literally my home city. But growing up and learning Philippine history gives us a deeper perspective and appreciation of matters.

Yesterday was Quezon City Day and Blogger Manila was invited by the Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU), named after the former Philippine Commonwealth President, to their special gathering.

New San Jose Builders supports MLQU

Two years ago, property developer New San Jose Builders, lnc. (NSJBI) acquired ownership of the 69-year old Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU). Since then, NSJBI has joined MLQU’s dream of helping Filipino students achieving a better life through education by improving and upgrading the school’s facilities as well as expanding its students’ opportunities.

In 2015, MLQU announced their plans for the Quezon City and Bataan campus through a viral campaign called “Maghihintay Ako” (sa EDSA). And immediately opened the School for Professional Advancement and continuing Education (SPACE) in the Victoria Sports Tower along EDSA which provides students a very accessible and conducive learning environment through the state of the art facilities.
