    the building has already been repaired & repainted along with the church; the grounds re-landscaped. As for the window-type acu’s, their still there…..you should take new pictures..its beautiful with the new bronze sculpture, especially at night when the lights are on…The adamsonian architects? Well they only have too much to say and recommend, the administrators still make the decisions……..

    With regards to those aircons destroying the facade of ST. Building, thats quite a shame though, the ability of the college of architecture in the said university seems not that powerful (convincing, being considered?) For whatever reason, no one knows why.
    The university tapped the services of AdU,s college of architecture before. Sad to say the architects, themselves, put efforts to proposed designs for some major changes in the buildings of the university, pro bono, all end up to nothing since there is no budget for such projects. An actual violation of the law by tapping services for free in my opinion since the university is a private catholic institution. Anyways, we did the new admissions design for the University. Too bad they rely to much aesthetics to the engineers which is quite ironic, and so ended up such a mess. really, a mess.

    The university should focus on renovation and restoration in my opinion.

    installing those window-type air conditioning units is an abomination. They should have set up a centralized a/c system. Or use split-types at the very least.

    First of all i’m a product of Adamson, and for six years that I’ve been there i felt i wasted my time. Siguro nga meron ng improvements kasi the last time i went there mukhang airconditioned na yung mga classroom…but my question is: HINDI BA DAPAT MATAGAL NA NILANG GINAWA ITO?…back in 2003 to 2006 eto yung mga problema ko sa school na ito: (1) kulang na kulang ang classroom, at one point nag kklase kami sa CS building and nasaabas na ako ng classroom nakaupo, not to mention sobrang ang init, parang nsa oven! Meron pa silang building sa likod harap lang ng high school building, isa pa yun! Kasumpa sumpa! (2) kulang ang laboratory equipments ng electronics at electrical engineering. My god in one lab module all 40 Students are sharing, not to mention 1 section lang yun ha! Hindi ko pa sinama yung ibang section (3) for a school na comparable sa mapua, it is really odd that it lacks the technological aspect such as enrollment process and many others. I cant imagine how many times na discourage ako magenroll simply because it will waste all my time sa pila, for a 9 unit subject to spend 12 hours, most of the time you spent sa pila lang.

    So a stranger once asked my opinion if Adamson is a better place for her daughter. I humbly replied NO. Because i felt that the management ng Adamson ay sobrang mabagal, onced i attended a seminar from Ateneo and sobrang nanliit kami sa facility, curriculum, processes, and the way Ateneo engaged their students. No wonder big firms prefers graduates from these institutions…but of course eto na naman ang depensang: Malaki kasi ang tuition eh…

    I really felt that the biggest problem of the university is the inability to keep up with improvements. Universities like De La Salle and Ateneo are very successful because they have expanded their markets by using different campuses all over the country making their services available to a wider market. This will greatly improve their revenues and will provide them with the necessary resources for incremental improvement. Pero until now nagiisa pa rin ang campus nila.

    Oh by the way, bago ko makalimutan. Nag champion na ba yung Adamson Falcons sa basketball? Yun men ha, hindi yung womens division (mas magaling pa yata yung womens div), kasi nung time ko nakakapagtaka na bakit ang bilis makabili ng mga athletes naten ng sports car? Bakit kaya? I mean madalas tambak ng 20points ang competitor but for some reason palaging nakakahabol by last quarter…wala lang for 6 years yan palagi tinatanong namin sa sarili namin.

    Sobrang haba na nito…anyways im just sharing…i am not trying to put Adamson down, but its good to be informed. Sometimes it is good that you believe youre doing a great job, but it will all be a waste to learn that you’ve only become the best in your own world while the rest of the world have conquered greater horizons and you became obsolete.

    The campus of Adamson University has two other noteworthy architectural structures. Aside from the above-posted photos of a neoclassical building (which constitute the main building by the way), the Saint Vincent Parish Church, a neo-Baroque church with twin bell towers, a pediment-capped facade and a rosewheel window in the front. The church was also badly pillaged on the onslaught of the WWII. The other structure is the former campus of St. Theresa’s College-Manila (which was used to be ran by Belgian nuns). STC was acquired by AdU in the 1970s and the STC compound has also a distinct architectural character.
