Lesson: Architecture - Replica in Miniature
These are works of architecture students of the university, displayed in a group contest on UST's quadricentennial year.

Monument of the founder, Fr. Miguel de Benavides, 1611

The Arch of the Centuries, through which walked
great men and women the university produced,
like Jose Rizal and Manuel Quezon.

Composite theme - 400 years, from history
to vision-mission
. UST is known as the Royal
and Pontifical University, and the Catholic
University of the Philippines.

The symbolic main building and tower with a cross,
and vigil light seen at a great distance

European Renaissance art - symbolic of the
university as a repository of history's finest
in different fields of endeavor .

UST Chapel and Seminary - home of Dominican
fathers and seminarians, one of the oldest
and biggest institutions of priesthood in the
country - and in Asia.

Tower and Cross - wherever you are inside
the university campus and its premises the
tower and cross is always within sight, or it
could be the other way around.

I. UST Hymn

God of all nations
Merciful Lord of our restless being
Sweep with Your golden lilies
This fountain of puerst light

Trace with the sails of the galleons
The dream beyond our seeing
Touch with the flame of Your kindness
The gloom of our darkest night

Keep us in beauty
And truth and virtues, impassioned embrace
Ever Your valiant legions
Imbued with undending grace

II. UST Hymn Lyrics

Seat of Aquinas, majestic enduring
the storms of the ages.
Shrine of our ancient fathers,
Carved in these isles

This is the castle imperious.
This is the home of our sages.
Blessed by the Cross of the angels,
Gift of our Mother Spain!

Deep in her echoing chambers
Flames of eternal yearning
Cast their benignant shadows
athwart this beloved land.

Keeping the torches of freedom
and heave forever burning.
Deep in the heart led by the Saviour's


God of all nations
Merciful Lord of our restless being,
Sweep with your golden lilies;
This fountain of purest light;

Trace with the sails of the galleons
the dream beyond our seeing
Touch with the flame of your kindness
the gloom of our darkest night.

Keep us in beauty and truth and virtues
impassioned embrace
Ever your valiant legions
