Baguio City: A fun learning educational hub
by Melanie Saro

Aside from its tag as Summer Capital of the Philippines, Baguio City is also considered as “Educational Hub of the North.” Colleges and universities in the city are known for providing quality education. The natural environs of Baguio and the cool climate are contributory factors to an environment conducive to learning. The peace and order situation is another reason most parents prefer to send their children to the City of Pines to study.

Essential to social, cultural, and educational experience of any individual is embracing the principles of cooperation and camaraderie. This is influenced by the hospitality of residents and the effect of various cultures present in Baguio City. Its unique culture, warm and hospitable folks, natural charm, simple and affordable lifestyle make every young individual love to study in the City of Pines.

Most of the colleges and universities are walking distance from the central business district where affordable accommodation facilities are situated,  helping students save from transportation expenses. Basic commodities are readily available with the abundance of locally produced products that makes food costs reasonable. Wide array of low-priced selections of personal apparel are also ample that balikbayan merchandizing stalls known as the ukay-ukay establishments are offering students who get to enjoy the night market where they can find fashionable, classy, signature clothing, and footwear that are within their budget. This can be added to the list that makes one’s stay in Baguio City affordable. Way of living here is also simple, making students survive financially. Daily expenses and tuition are far cheaper in Baguio than in Manila, yet students here can still obtain quality education.

Beyond the four walls of the classroom, fun learning is also equated to enjoying numerous tourist attractions such as Burnham Park, Camp John Hay, Tam-awan Village, BenCab Museum, and Philippine Military Academy that students can visit and create fond memories with their family, classmates, and friends.

Baguio provides a great and holistic experience wherein students get to interact with dynamic, reliable, and competent school administrators and professors that make their learning more challenging. It allows for exposures and opportunities, so students can witness and join local festivities anchored on active involvement of educational institutions in community events including various educational competitions and outreach programs. These help students develop social responsibility while maintaining academic excellence.

This is what makes the City of Pines a champion in the concept of “a fun learning educational hub” in strengthening knowledge acquisition balanced with developing and managing students’ abilities and capabilities, and allowing them to be independent and experience Baguio City as a fun learning environment.

Indeed, it is more fun to study in Baguio City!
