My Alma Mater - Silliman University

Silliman Hall - Silliman University's main building (the very first building). It was restored in 2001 for the centennial celebration.

Silliman University is one of the country’s top Christian institutions committed to total development for well being of society and the environment. A 62-hectar campus with 300 Acacia trees is located in the heart of Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.

The University was established in 1901 by Presbyterian missionaries and it was the first American private school to be founded in the country.

Silliman was names after Dr. Horace Brinsmade Silliman, a retired businessman and philanthropist from Cohoes, New York – who gave the initial sum of $10,000 to start the school. Silliman got its university status in 1938.

I'm proud to be a Sillimanian. I got my Bachelor's degree in Mass Communication in 2004.
