, we look back on celebrationsof the Centennial and on the year that was: the jubilation, thetremendous creative output—the books, the Centennial Lectures,the concerts, the painting sessions and exhibits, the lanternparades, additions to the UP Diliman and other campuses, andcelebrations in all campuses of the UP System. The Carillon bells rang again. The tower had been restoredand will soon be the centerpiece of the Carillon Plaza with a caféand meeting place. New gates have been installed in all entrancesand the Oval Walk will soon be completed. There are new orrefurbished buildings, laboratories, and other facilities at theCUs. With the UP-Ayalaland Technohub, a public-private sectorcollaboration, UP, according to Pres. Roman, took a step towardbeing at par with the leading R & D institutions in the region. The alumni and friends of UP from all over the worlddemonstrated their loyalty and support to UP through theirgenerous gifts and donations, in support of more faculty members and students.Looking back, we took excerpts from the last five issuesof

and combined them with our coverage of thecentennial events that took place in the first quarter of 2009.

aunched in 2007, the Diliman Oval project is a fund-raising activity aimed at protecting UP’s heritage of excellent faculty, which is endangered by low salaries. To support the Diliman Faculty Development Fund,the existing inner sidewalk along the Academic Oval will bedeveloped.

n December 18, 2007, after almost two decades, theUP Diliman (UPD) campus was once again ringing  with carillon musical pieces as 36 new bells wereinstalled in the UP Diliman Carillon. Through the efforts of the UP Alumni Association (UPAA), the bells were importedfrom the Netherlands, the old clavier keyboard was replaced with a new heavy-duty oak-wood one, a hook-up with a masterclock, and synthesizer; and the steel frames bolts, cables, wallsand ceilings were refurbished.Former UPAA President Lt. Gen. Jaime S. de los Santosand current Alumni Regent and UPAA President, Ponciano E.Rivera Jr. formally turned over the bells to UPD ChancellorSergio S.
