One Rainy Sunday in UCC.

Let me tour you (again) to UCC Camarin with these picures I've taken with some of my class mates as models.
Above: This is a room in the 2nd floor. Buti pa sila may mga chairs na.
last Saturday I saw again group of students clad in their checkerd uniform for girls & polo & black slacks for males squatting on the floor.
They looked so pathetic. Sana more chairs will be provided. I was about to take pictures of them unfortunately battery empty na camera ko.
Above: These are my friends/classmates overlooking the Camarin High School from the THIRD FLOOR of RECOM BUILDING.

Above: Plants were provided. It's really good to see them. They add a warm & cozy feeling in the surrounding.

Above: Rainy!! rainy!! rainy Sunday.

Above: the gate from the upper view. This is supposed to be the main gate but I'm wondering why it isn't fully functional yet!

Above: The covered court from RB Building 3rd floor's view.

Above: We saw thid group of guys seriously discussing something.

Bakit Yellow Ang New Building?

(Camarin Campus)

Pagpasok pa lang ng gate bubungad na sayo ang kapansin pansing NEW Builing na tinatawag na RB.

Di ako sure kung totoo ngang Recom Building ibig sabihin nun.

Marami nagsasabi na Building nga yun ni Mayor dahil sa bumabanderang kulay DILAW at ASUL. Ang sinasabi ng iba na motif ni Mayor.

Maaring OO pero maaring ding HINDI.

Alam mo ba na may iba pang maaring dahilan?

(thanks to OVERHEARD in UCC from Facebook for this trivia!

and also the admin of the said Page noted that the info was from Sir Rhod Dantay.So thank you to bothe of them!)

Sinsabing ang YELLOW ay nakatutulong para maging mas aktibo ang ating pag-iisip. Marami din itong iba pang magandang dulot sa pag-aaral.

They are as follows:

(haisst..I can't believe it. I'm having a harder time now writing in tagalog than English. tsktsk..I have to practice.sorry ..sorry my mother tongue)


Meaning of the Color Yellow

Yellow shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future. Yellow will advance from surrounding colors and instill optimism and energy, as well as spark creative thoughts.How the color yellow affects us mentally and physically

* Mentally stimulating

* Stimulates the nervous system

* Activates memory

* Encourages communication


Psychology of Color: Yellow

Cheerful yellow the color of the sun, associated with laughter, happiness and good times. A person surrounded by yellow feels optimistic because the brain actually releases more seratonin (feel good chemical in the brain) when around this color. It is the color associated with optimism but be careful with yellow, when intense, it is the color of flames and studies show babies cry more in (bright) yellow rooms and tempers flare more around that color too. It has the power to speed up our metabolism and bring out some creative thoughts (legal tablets are yellow for good reason!). Yellow can be quickly overpowering if over-used, but used sparingly in the just the right place it can be an effective tool in marketing to greater sales. Some shades of yellow are associated with cowardice; but the more golden shades with the promise of better times.


Introducing Yellow

Yellow shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future. Yellow will advance from surrounding colors and instill optimism and energy, as well as spark creative thoughts.

How the color yellow affects us physically

· Stimulates mental processes
· Stimulates the nervous system
· Activates memory
· Encourages communication

info. source.

*So in the end it depends on you what to believe let's just hope the strategy can really improve students' academic performance.

Official & Unofficial DROP

May nagtanong...
(si Butz)
ANSWER: Nagkakaroon ng UD o Unoffically Dropped subjects KAPAG di ka nagfile ng OFFICIAL DROP form sa REGISTRAR.
Kapag meron ka nito uulitin mo po ang subject na iyon! Ieenroll mo uli at papasukan mo uli!!
Answer: Pareho ang gagawin. Uulitin ang subject, ieenroll at papasukan mo uli!

hindi magaappear sa TOR (transcript of records) mo ang dinrop na subject KAPAG nakapagfile ka ng OFFICIAL DROPPED.
NOTE: The information here is taken through experience. That WAS the registrar's explanation to me when I was filing the said FORM! This may CHANGE depending on the current policies of the school.
DISCALIMER: I don't answer all the queries here in behalf of the school officials. I answer them through the knowledge I've gained from my 3-year stay in the university.

Third Day of School

This morning, June 09, 2010 - the third day of school..I've been to UCC Camarin to see my schedule.
And something changed. I could feel it.
I figured out what it was.
It was the freshmen's eagerness & excitement shown through their giggles & stares.
I wish them the best years to come.
They are fortunate. They've started when the RB (Recom Building) was ready to be occupied.
I've also seen an alum who happened to intentionally visit the new building.
Just to experience it.
Let me tour you.
Here are the pictures!
Captions provided below each picture.

This is the supposed to be frontgate! But I think not ready yet.

there he goes again.

As I've mentioned on a previous blog the rooms will be divided into two. I guess this is the divider(?) Still no chairs.

university of caloocan city camarin campus new building

Take a look at it closely.

By the gaze on their faces & their clothes (not in uniform) I guess they are Freshmen.

I was surprised to see them squatting. In This room there were no chairs yet. I'm not sure with the rest. I hope chairs will be provided soon.

First Day of School ..almost

June 7, 2010

- Monday

is the first day of our school!

No one can be more excited than the FRESHMEN of course.

There are new challenges ahead of us so let's be BRAVE.

We'll also meet new friends & interesting personalities which includes professors & school faculty.

Some will be worth respecting but some will just be a pain in the ass.

But surely they will be just another character in your story...fulfilling their roles.



1. Kelan ang PASUKAN?

Answe: June 7, 2010 - Monday

2. San po makikita ang mga SCHEDULE??

Answer: this will vary depending on your course.
Kung saan po ang mga rooms ng Education students siyempre dun din malapit ipopost ang mga schedule.
Usually sa Camarin campus, sa court at sa NR buildings pinopost.
Di naman kalakihan ang UCC so madali lang yan makikita for sure!

3. Maguuniform na ba?

Answer: For the OLD students being in complete UNIFORM will be a requirement!
For FRESHMEN you'll be given I think one week allowance to provide your uniform.

FYI: The school sells sets of uniforms so if you are in a rush pwede na lang kayo bumili dun.
The price? - (this post to be updated)

4. Nakaassign na ba ang SCHEDULE o estudyante ang pipili??

Answer: Yes. The SCHEDULES are already assigned based on your section/block.
However, You can change them to suit your available time in case you are a working student.
You can choose your desired schedule & professor provided that it has the same subject title.

There is a specific schedule for this. It will be posted & announced by the registrar. Just make sure to be aware. Visit the Registrar's office every now & then. Pag tapos na tapos na di na pwedeng HUMABOL.

we call this as ADDING/CHANGING of subjects.

5. San makakabili ng PE Uniforms?

Answer: Registrar's office.

6. Panu magdrop ng SUBJECTS?

Answer: IF the students have some problems & couldn't attend the class(es) anymore he/she should make sure to file an OFFICIAL DROPPED form to the registrar. This will require signatures of your professor & department head.

7. Why is there a NEED for number 6?

Answer: Kapag di po na OFFICIALLY DROPPED ang subjects it will appear on your TOR (transcript of records) and it will not be a very good record when you are already applying for a job!

Thanks for READING people~!

The Fence

This might be what other ASPIRANTS see.


those aspirants who according to them have been deprived of the right to a CHEAP higher education!

madami ang napagkaitan..dahil tanging residente lamang ng Caloocan ang nararapat dito..NGUNIT..madami ang nagtatanong..

"bakit ang ibang NON resident ay nakapagenroll?"

mga katanungan ng mga aspirants sa ating FACEBOOK group.

Wala akong nasabi kundi "nirepost ko lang ang sinabi ni _ _ _ _".

In my part I feel guilty. They could have exerted effort & tried to ENROLL but I TOLD THEM "NO".

"It is not allowed."

It was like me depriving them. Their life could have been changed.



These are the students who PASSED the THE CROSSROADS Publication qualifying exam.

University of caloocan city Crossroads passers


Another Random Pic I've taken in UCC while ENROLLMENT!

just image.



university of caloocan city new & improved registration form
There's the 'ENROLLED' stamp!
university of caloocan city new & improved registration form
This is the back part. You have to fill up this form completely.

university of caloocan city new & improved registration form
Think again. It's the NEW & IMPROVED Registration Form for OLD UCC students.



When you're already ENROLLED you'll have this STUDENT's COPY!

I think this is only for old students..coz I've seen incoming freshmen have the old one.

It is a bit harder & more durable than the old one.

That's quite an improvement. Although very little let's get to appreciate it somehow.

Kadalasan kasi makakarinig tayo ng alingasngas mula sa estudyante kapag MALi at pangit ang nagawa..pero wala man lang ni konti kapag TAMA at MAGANDA!

So I give 2 thumbs up to the UCC ADMIN for this act!
