Trinity University of Asia is a private, non-sectarian university in Quezon City and, in case you didn't know, the school has been home to several personalities in the local entertainment and media industry. Here are a few of the stars who were once students at TUA:

Maris Racal

The actress and singer once dreamed of becoming a doctor. She took up Medical Technology as a pre-med course at TUA in hopes of one day pursuing that goal. She had to stop, however, because her showbiz schedule was getting more packed.
