I have to remind myself that this is, UP, and it’s gonna be, at the Sunken Garden! No to dress and high heels, please?
I’m still on my twenties, so yeah, go youth!
University of the Philippines, Diliman
U.P. Diliman University Student Council presents The U.P. Fair, the week-long event held at the Sunken Garden featuring concerts, shows, fair booths, bazaars, rock climbing, and other gimmicks.
The fair aims to raise awareness among students and the youth about diverse issues bearing local significance. This year, each night will feature a national issue as part of the youth agenda in the 2010 national elections: environment, good governance, internal war, and so forth. The USC Night (Saturday) is about human rights with the theme: “YOUTHSTOCK: Rock, Role, Rights!”
