known as the Catholic University of the
Philippines, the almost four-century old University of Santo Tomas draws
inspiration from the teachings and philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic
doctor and patron saint of Catholic schools.
The Campus of the University of Santo Tomas stands out like well crafted
sparkling jewelry in the city long marred by ecological ugliness, spawned by
human neglect. The almost 400-year old university is the oldest in Asia and in
student population, the largest Catholic University in the world located in one
campus. In some ways, the campus lays bare the soul of this venerable
institution. The UST campus exudes history and culture, a quest for knowledge
and a love for God.
Sprawled in an almost perfect square of twenty two hectares, the UST campus
is boxed in by España Street on its front lawn, Governor Forbes (now Arsenio
Lacson) St. on its northern flank, P.Noval on its south, and Dapitan St. on the
God of all Nations Merciful Lord of our Restless Being
Sweep with your Golden Lilies This Fountain of Purest Light
Trace with the Sails of the Galleons The Dream Beyond our Seeing
Touch with the Flames of your Kindness The Gloom of our Darkest Night
Keep us in Beauty And Truth and Virtues Impassioned Embrace
Ever your Valiant Legions Imbued with Unending Grace.
