This morning as I was watching/listening the television, the news about the top 5 Philippine schools that are said to be included in the top 300 best Asian schools caught my attention. The following Philippine universities (already listed for a couple of years now) are the University of the Philippines-Diliman (UP DIliman), Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU), De La Salle University (DLSU), University of Sto. Tomas (UST) and first time to be included is the University of Southeastern Philippines (USEP in short, as it is known by the locals) located here in our very own Davao City (show link here of the news).
As a homegrown Dabawenyo (though not a graduate of the said school), I am very proud for the achievement and accolade that it brought for the city. USEP is a state university and many consider it as like the UP-Diliman here in the city. And what I know is (about some hearsays) that it educates, develops and provides good engineers and teachers though they offer a lot of courses to choose from.
