Other dormitorieswill have some corridors orentire loors closed.On the other hand, KamiaResidence Hall, which hostsemale undergraduate students,will have only minor repairsand thus will still be able tohold more than hal o itscurrent residents.For reshman dormitoryKalayaan Residence Hall,renovations will include there-piping o all comort roomsand the installation o newglass doors and new ire exits.To accommodate these repairs,only emale residents will beadmitted in the summer termand irst semester o the nextschool year.The renovations will start insummer and will possibly beinished by the end o the irstsemester, Lanuza said.Due to these repairs, oodservice will also be disruptedin the single-ee dormitorieswhich oer the said service,such as Kalayaan, Molave, andIlang-Ilang Residence Halls,according to an announcementposted in the OSH website.Residents in these dormitorieswill thus be charged onlylodging ees.To assist the students inpreparing or the reduction inavailable dormitory slots, theOSH has posted an advisory inJanuary, advising prospectiveresidents o the impendingrenovations and allowing currentresidents to renew theirapplication or the next semester.The OSH however willalso be conducting stricterimplementation o the “pointsystem” currently used as basisor evaluating applications ordormitory slots.

sa kasalukuyan, wala pa rin sapatna bilang ng gwardya sa UP, dulotna rin ng malaking kakulangan sabadyet nito.Nang makatanggap ng halos60 porsyento, o P9.5 bilyon ngpanukalang badyet na P18,4bilyon, kinilala ng Collegian namas mataas ito sa subsidyongkaraniwan nating natatanggap.Ngunit sa halip na ituring naganap na tagumpay, idineklara ngCollegian na hindi rito nagtataposang laban para sa sapat na badyetmula sa pamahalaan.Hindi rin ikinulong ngCollegian ang kanyang sarilisa mga usapin sa loobng pamantasan. Naturinganmang pahayagang pangmag-aaral,patuloy na kinikilala ng Collegianang tungkulin ng mga estudyantena makibahagi sa mga isyungkinaharap ng mas malawakpang lipunan sa labas ng atingmga tarangkahan.Naglathala ng artikulo angCollegian na sumusuri atsumusuporta sa pagsasabatassa Reproductive Health Law.Nanawagan ito para sa pagpasang isang makabuluhang Freedomo Inormation Bill, kasabay ngmga panawagan para sa tunay narepormang agraryo at makataongpasahod sa mga manggagawa.Sa kabilang banda, agarangtinuligsa ng Collegian angnaipasang Cybercrime Preven-tion Law dahil isa itong tahasangpagsupil sa ating karapatangmagpahayag. Nanawagan din angpahayagan laban sa pagsasapribadosa mga pampublikong institusyongaya ng mga ospital.Sa panahon kung kailanmistulang may pag-unlad atpag-usad ang kalagayan ngPilipinas sa ilalim ng administrasyongAquino, nanguna ang Collegian sapagbubulgar sa mga pagbabalat-kayo. Maturingan mang negatibo,iginiit nitong walang pagtaasng gross domestic product angmakakukubli sa kahirapang dinaranasng mga Pilipino.Sa buong taon, isinabuhay ngCollegian ang uri ng peryodismongmay kinikilingan, na samakatuwid ayumaani ng pagbabatikos mula samga panig na hindi nito kinampihan.Simple lang ang lohika ngpahayagan: lagi itong papanigsa mga tindig na magsusulongsa karapatan ng mga mag-aaralat mamamayan, at anumangtaliwas dito’y matapang nitongtutulan—kapwa sa panulat, at saaktwal na paglaban, sa loob manng Kongreso, hanggang sa lawasng lansangan.Sapagkat sa huli, walang kataga,larawan o dibuho ang tunay namakapagpapaunlad sa kalagayanng bawat Pilipino. Lagi’t lagingmay pangangailangan para sakonkretong aksyon at asahangmakikibahagi rito ang Collegianngayon, at sa sana’y hanggang sasusunod pang mga taon.

Patnugot sa Balita
WALANG PAUMANHINGmaninindigan ang PhilippineCollegian sa panata nitongmakisangkot sa laban para samga karapatan ng mga mag-aaral at ng mamamayang Pilipinosa kalakhan.Sa nagdaang taon, tinangananng Collegian ang uri ng peryodis-mong hindi popular sa marami—walang pagpapanggap nitongbinasag ang mito ng pagigingobhetibo, at dinurog anganumang hibo ng pluralismo.Hindi kailanman ninais ngCollegian na pasiyahin ang lahatng mambabasa. Sa bawat balita,bawat artikulo, bawat dibuho’tlitratong inilathala ng pahayagan,malay itong may mga panig nahindi malulugod, at aalma sa mgaisyung aming kinilingan.Sapagkat noon pa man,naniniwala ang Collegian na higitpa sa pag-uulat ang tunguhinng pamamahayag. Bilang isanginstitusyong may kapangyarihangmagmulat, hindi ito nag-aksayang pahina para maglantad ngmga katotohanang ikinukubli’tikinakaila ng mainstream mediaat ng iba pang mga institusyon sapamantasan at sa bayan.Nang bumungad sa mgamag-aaral ng UP noongHunyo ang panuntunang BracketB certifcation, nanindigan angCollegian na isa itong pormang pagtaas ng tuition,dahil awtomatiko nitongipinagpapalagay na kayangmagbayad ng mga iskolar ngbayan ng matrikulang P1,500kada yunit.Higit pa rito, mamamalas dinsa mga balita ng Collegian angpagiging huwad na solusyon ngSocialized Tuition and FinancialAssistance Program upang gawingmas abot-kaya at bukas sa lahatng karapat-dapat ang edukasyonsa UP.Matapang na tinuligsa ngCollegian ang kasalukuyangipinatatayong UP Town Centersa dating kinaroroonan ng UPIntegrated School. Tinututulanng Collegian ang kahit anongporma ng panghihimasok ng mgapribadong kumpanya sa UP,sapagkat hinuhubad nito angpampublikong katangian ngpambansang unibersidad ng bayan.Patuloy ding ibinabalita atipinapaalala ng Collegian sa mgaiskolar ng bayan ang pagdukotsa dalawang estudyante ng UPna sina Karen Empeno atSherlyn Cadapan. Hanggangngayon, hindi pa rin nahuhuli angpangunahing suspek na si Maj.Gen. Jovito Palparan.Isang taon matapos masaksakang isang mag-aaral ng PoliticalScience sa loob mismo ngisang gusali sa pamantasan,inilantad ng Collegian angnananatiling mga pagkukulangng UP sa pagtitiyak sa pisikal naseguridad ng kampus.
