A parallel history with UP

Upsilonians in a Consolidated Mills, Canton Cotton Mills denims advertisementA university formation that has been existing for 89 years is bound to have a lot of vintage memorabilia among its historical treasures. I’m quite amused with all the old pictures I’ve been sifting through for the past days. I’d sometimes recognize present public figures today during in their youthful college days decades ago.

Anyway, in celebration of our 89th anniversary, we’re inviting everyone to a special FREE screening of Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival 2006 Best Picture, Tulad ng Dati by Mike Sandejas ’91. It’s going to be on Tuesday, November 13, 7:00 PM at the UP Cine Adarna (Film Center). Again, admission is free. I hope to see you there!

Other events for the rest of the anniversary celebration include a Bloodletting event, on November 22-23; a Gawad Kalinga build on November 24; the traditional Day of Roses on November 26; the annual Car Stuffing and Food Stuffing contest on December 4 (UP Diliman) and December 7 (UP Manila); and a free concert on December 11. See posters for more details.
