  • The cathedral is magnificent. It is on the UP campus across from Heinz Chapel. The only challenge is finding a place to park. You will need to find a spot with a meter.

  • The view from 36th floor is fantastic.. i liked the nationality rooms here in 3rd floor other than that i didnt find anything else much interesting. But the class rooms are well maintained and the lawn is awesomely maintained 👍
  • Such a cool place. Makes me want to be a student here. My favorite part, besides The beautiful architect in the main room that made me feel like I was at Hogwarts, we're the classrooms. Each one is the theme of a different country. Definitely worth the trip!
