ELY BUENDIA AND PIA CAYETANO REMINISCE ABOUT U.P. ON S+A’S “UNIVERSITY TOWN”

 

Rep. Pia Cayetano and Pinoy rock icon Ely Buendia will take a trip down memory lane as “University Town” (U-Town) goes to their alma mater, the University of the Philippines with hosts Robi Domingo and Gretchen Ho this Sunday (August 6) on S+A and S+A HD at 1pm.

Pia is a proud alumna of the country’s premier State Universitywhere she used to be the captain of the Lady Fighting Maroons, bringing the school a volleyball championship during her playing years. Now, Pia’s own daughters are student-athletes in the University.

Ely, who is one fourth of the ever-popular band “Eraserheads,” met his bandmates and began his musical journey in UP, which he said was the perfect playground for artists like him.

Another famous “Isko” that will be featured is coach Ronnie Magsanoc, who will recount his fun days inside the halls of the esteemed academic institution, as well as their magical UAAP title run in basketball with his great friend Benjie Paras.

Aside from the famous people who carry the school’s name and colors proudly, there are everyday heroes that modern-day UP students can also look up to like Norman King, the first Aeta to have graduated in the UP System and Batch 2017’s summa cum laude, Arman Ghodsinia of Marawi. The two will share their inspiring stories to Robi and Gretchen, while UP Diliman chancellor Dr. Michael Lim-Tan will provide trivia on the school and its students.

“U-Town’s” latest episode also highlights the athletic program of the university, with their women’s swimming squad taking center stage after copping their 15th UAAP crown. Not to be left behind is the Women’s Badminton team, that has nine titles under their belts, making them the winningest Badminton team in the league.

This is the fifth school that “University Town” gets to explore this season, which is on its second year of featuring the eight schools competing in the country’s premier collegiate league, the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP).

Don’t miss the chance to get to know more about the famed State University and bastion of education as Robi Domingo and Gretchen Ho take viewers on a tour inside UP in “University Town” on S+A and S+A HD this Sunday (August 6) at 1pm with a primetime telecast on Monday (August 7) at 8pm.
