    University Campus Tour

    As one of the highlights of the welcome ceremonies of the Grade 7 students and transferees for this school year 2015-2016, the University Campus Tour was held last July 16, 2015. This undertaking was organized by the UST Junior High School Student Council in coordination with the Central Board composed of club and organization presidents and selected student leaders. The new breed of Thomasians were toured around the University of Santo Tomas to orient them on the orientation and location of each college, faculty, or department within the campus. The freshmen and transferees were also given a glimpse of the brief history and trademarks that UST is known for. Some of the stations where student leaders have been deployed were the UST Main Building, the Rosarium, the Benavides Garden, St. Martin de Porres Building, the UST Hospital, the Arch of the Centuries, the Quadricentennial Square, and many other attractions inside the UST Campus.
