Taytay Councilor Papoo Cruz explains why he studied in UP
Taytay Councilor Papoo Cruz’ decision to study at the University of the Philippines was not just because of its reputation.
In a Facebook post, Cruz said studying in UP was a big help to his parents because his tuition was just P6,000 per semester.
He also said he only took the entrance exam for UP because fees for entrance exams in other schools were high.
He also did his own review for the UPCAT because review centers could be expensive.
His work paid off and he was able to get his Bachelor of Science in Community Development degree from UP DIliman in 2008.
He’s a proud Isko!
“Si Councilor Papoo Cruz ay nagtapos ng kursong Bachelor of Science in Community Development sa UP Diliman noong 2008.
“Mahal din ang bayad sa mga entrance exams at review centers kaya dun lang ako sa UP nag-take at sariling sikap na lang ng review for UPCAT para tipid. Awa ng Diyos pumasa naman. Malaking tulong na din sa mga magulang ko kase P6,000 per sem lang ang tuition namin non bilang iskolar ng Bayan” -Papoo
