The government-funded University of the Philippines opened in 1908 and is today the country's largest university system. This main campus at Diliman, Quezon City, covers 493 hectares dotted with approximately 26 colleges, 30 research/training institutes, 57 libraries, 10 residence halls, several canteens, theaters, a chapel and an alumni center. Echoing classical Greek architecture with its tall columns and fluid symmetry, the main administration building is fronted by the Oblation (shown in the photo), a rendition into sculpture of National Hero Jose Rizal's poem My Last Farewell.
