"Hail, Hail, Alma Mater, Hail to De La Salle…"
On June 16, De La Salle Philippines celebrates 100 years of its presence. I studied in La Salle for 4 years, and gave me lessons not only in the classroom, but also outside of it (it’s Manila, you learn a lot in the streets).
Even if I’m studying again in another school, I always think back on my college days in La Salle and can’t help but compare—for instance, when I see college kids at Casaa in UP, I remember hanging out at Z2 canteen. Or even when I go back to visit La Salle and feel sad at the new Agno, wondering if there is still bacsilog.
Yes, Avenue Q is right. I wish I could go back to college.
Happy 100 years, De La Salle! =)
