Convenience

The University of the Philippines (U.P.) Diliman shopping center is nothing fancy. It's just a long, narrow cinder block of a building with small shops on both sides of one narrow corridor, but it's definitely a boon to its students, faculty and staff. Aside from the optical and computer shops that you can see in the photo, here's a short, top-of-the-head rundown of other stores and services found there: photocopying and bookbinding, key duplication, tailor, dressmaker, grocery, U.P. souvenir items, gift shop, barber shop, and laboratory glass supplies. Everything that young college students need.

that works well for the basic needs of the students. for the more fancy place, they could always go to one of the mammoth malls in the metro.

It is the inside that counts.

Please have a good Thursday.

College students don't need anything fancy. It sounds as if this mall has everything a student needs.

Hi, Hilda. I can believe this is associated with a school...it has an institutional look.

The photocopier was my best friend in college...we all used it to share class notes ;D

I agree -- nothing fancy at all. But, anything they need is right at their fingertips online.
