UP Acad Oval

The recently implemented "One way Acad Oval Scheme" has generated mixed reactions from the UP community. According to Dr. Cynthia Gregorio, vice chancellor for community affairs, the one way scheme was the initial phase in the implementation of the UP Traffic Management Plan. Under this plan, the university oval was divided into two lanes: the outer lane for motor vehicles and the inner lane to serve as a bike lane. Its goal is to lessen the volume of vehicles passing through the campus thereby reducing pollution and risks for the students.Most of the jeepney drivers are against it as they need to spend much more gasoline going in circles just so it won't violate the one-way policy. And since the buildings inside the campus are not necessarily close to each other, the passengers (students) end up spending more time before they can reach their next class. On the other hand, some preferred the change as the oval doesn't look like it is in such a mess as when the two-way scheme was still implemented.


I personally like the new scheme. As a runner, I now feel more comfortable doing my usual rounds under the shade of enormous acacia trees with jeepneys coming only from one direction.

Demands of the times. Back in my time, we had 3 options: Ikot, Philcoa, and Katipunan route which was very convenient for us students. But then, the pressing problem back then for the country's State U was not quality education nor politics but.. parking lots! Hahaha some things never change.

This place is probably the most beautiful campus I have seen. A perfect place for running, for a stroll or just breath after the heavy traffic of Metro Manila. This photo shows how the light can be great at UP. I love this photo !

I like it so much better now! But then, I'm not a student having to worry about getting to a class on time.

Love how you captured this one, with the light streaming down throught the trees!
