Touring the MLQU's School for Professional Advancement (SPACE)

Happy Quezon City Day! I grew up in Makati until the age of eighteen. Then we moved to San Mateo Rizal, Sta. Maria in Bulacan and in Quezon City. As far as I can remember, I've stayed in QC for the longest period of time. I also took up and finished nursing in one of the nursing schools in Quezon City. I had so many fond memories living here. I left and never thought I would come back after getting married.

Quezon is Home at MLQU Quezon City campus
Living in Quezon City is a lot more convenient. We're accessible to almost all establishments. There are easy routes from and to Makati, Manila, even going south especially to the airport. You see, we are surrounded with big department stores and supermarkets. For emergency, there are hospitals both public and private, even clinics. Tertiary and specialty hospitals for specific medical needs like East Avenue, the Lung Center, Heart Center, Kidney Institute and St. Lukes. Our home is just walking distance from the police station as well. Parents need not have to send their children in Manila for schooling. Quezon City is a big city surrounded with universities and colleges offering graduate, post-graduate and even vocational courses. Just last year, Manuel L. Quezon University opened its doors for people living in QC and nearby areas. The university has produced top bar passers and notable government officials.

In celebration of 138th birthday of the late president, Manuel L. Quezon, the institution, MLQU unveiled his portrait done by national artist for painting, Fernando Amorsolo.
