Our Graduates

“UNP College of Architecture has molded me into the person I am today. I firmly believe that it is the university that shapes us, rather than the other way around. While many exclusive and renowned universities may have access to the same reference materials on architecture, our unique connection to the Vigan heritage and our active involvement in heritage conservation practices sets us apart. Being the only female Asian graduate among my Filipino and Thai peers in my batch was an empowering experience. These experiences in a community that values diversity and promotes equality honed my architectural skills and developed a deep appreciation for heritage preservation. I am confident that my education and unique experiences at UNP have prepared me to make meaningful contribution to the world of architecture.”


Provincial Planning and Development Coordinator, Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur

“The University of Northern Philippines, College of Architecture, is a transformative institution, boasting a growing community of renowned Architects and Builders. It was a life-changing experience that “designed” me of who I am today. As an ordinary student, fueled by the sacrifices of my hardworking parents who toiled under the scorching sun as farmers, I pursued my goals-our goals. Thanks to my mentors who lifted me up and provided invaluable guidance throughout my journey. College life offered more than learning or sleepless nights. Collaborating with classmates and supporting each other during tough times forged lasting friendships. The witty scrutiny of instructors added depth to the experience, making UNP College of Architecture one of the happiest and most memorable chapter of my life.”
