  1. Wow… a tourist at central… CPU actually is the 2ND American university in Asia, the FIRST Baptist university in Asia… a national landmark by National Historical Institute… Pioneered the Nursing Education in the Philippines… The 1st and only declared tourist site university by a local government in Asia…. established the 1st and oldest running student government in SE Asia… so much first….

    When I visited the campus… buildings are all actually organized and some dates back during the American Colonial period…. I like the architecture of the CPU Church.. beautiful manicured gardens… there are golf cars for tourists…

  3. Studied in Central Philippine University when I was in Kindergarten and Elementary School. It is one ofthe oldest schools in Iloilo. It was founded by American missionaries in 1905. It was only in the 1960s when control of the unversity was turned over to Filipinos. I remember that we also had an English only policy when I was studying in CPU in the 1980s. There are also a number of foreighn students in CPU. I had a few classmates who were children of American missionaries. Sometimes you would catch some foreign students playing crickett in one of the football fields.
