Welcome to UP, mga Iskolar ng Bayan! We might see your "freshie priority" as a peeve (sorry we're really just in a desperate need of slots) but we are actually excited to see your faces around campus. Don't be afraid to ask us for directions when you get lost!
1. UP will always try to break you. It'syour responsibility to prove it wrong.
That DRP or 5.0 doesn't mean you're not good enough for UP. Get back up and try again. #TipsForUPFreshies— Ivana Sanchez (@ivanasnchz) July 19, 2016

3. UP enrollment will put you to the test (and I'm sure you have heard the stories) but it's part of the experience so just embrace it. You'll miss the hassle when you graduate.
4. UP will take you out of your comfort zone. Go out there and see everything the world has to offer.

Surviving in UP will take a lot of courage. Days will be tiring, nights will be long, and you will often be on the brink of giving up. Be brave, always keep one foot in front of the other and before you know it, you're already running. You know what they say, there's no other way but UP.
