    Yes, that’s one of the oldest buildings in the Campus by the Sea… It was used to be the SU Library, CBA and Office of the Student Affairs…

    A lot of memoirs have been nurtured, grew and bore fruits!


      how beautiful and famous university in dumaguete city…i wish to study this universty like my cousin…MY DREAM SCHOOL…

  2. Dumaguete has so much character that is reflected in these older buildings. If I’m not mistaken, some of the buildings on campus are considered to be reflective of American architecture. Sadly, I don’t know if this is one of them. The only architecture we see nowadays are brand new malls and restaurants composed of brick and aluminum. No history, and not much character to speak of when compared to buildings such as those in Dumaguete.

    I’ve visited Silliman many times and its older buildings bring me back in time. Hibbard Hall reflects some classical influences as manifested in the arch and the columns at its facade, a common style during the American period in the Philippines. Actually, the pre-war buildings in Silliman are a mixture of many styles. The Silliman Hall for instance reflects some victorian and stick-style influences, Neo-gothic for the Silliman Church and the University’s Scheidi Chapel, Georgian architecture for its Oriental Hall, and of course the “Bahay na Bato” style of the Katipunan Hall.
