Video: CPU Morning After Typhoon Frank 22 June 2008 #ThrowbackThursday

I found this video taken the morning after Typhoon Frank hit Iloilo, flooding CPU with storm water, mud and debris.

I was using the camera of my Nokia 2210 so my apologies for the poor resolution.

Notice the ankle-deep silt blanketing the area around the elementary, Johnson Hall and towards Gate 6.

CPUR Benches

These are photos of CPUR benches that Nygel John Melitado took in 2007.

We used these photos for a mini-documentary in one of the episodes of the CPU TV program “CPU Derecho”.

The concrete benches were projects of past CPU Republic from as far back as 1960s.

Maybe a few of these simple CPUR edifices have remained and still serving their purpose.

Most of these benches had to be destroyed, relocated and thrown around to give way to more elaborate campus developments.

Behind every year period inscribed on these benches are stories of former student leaders whose leadership and character development began with the oldest student republic in the Philippines.

Well, if these benches could talk, they could probably narrate lots of campus stories.

Please have a look and try to think and reminisce your CPU campus memories.

Central Philippine University – Find Her in This Video…



Is Central Philippine University an excellent university in Iloilo City?

Is Central Philippine University still an Iloilo City tourist destination?

I can’t help asking these questions after watching the “Livable Iloilo City” video several times trying to find any image of Central Philippine University.

Sad to note, there is none.

How could the producers miss taking footage of Central Philippine University, a University with more than 12,000 students?

Currently, the first and only university in the Philippines that is offering the B.S. Health, Fitness, Lifestyle Management and B.S. Packaging Engineering courses.

Maybe the producers went out looking for sponsors, invited CPU but maybe CPU did not respond positively for lack of budget?

Well, let me find some answers… meanwhile let me pray… God save Central Philippine University!
