The University community is invited to revisit, reflect on, and revive the
spirit of the 1986 EDSA People Power Upheaval on its milestone 30th
anniversary, through participation in events both in and out of campus in
these next couple of weeks.

The following activities (among others) at the Loyola Heights campus have
been lined up by various offices and units as contributions to the
memorialization of EDSA at 30:

(1983-1986, culminating in the EDSA Revolution). Fun facts and a
chronological account, replete with photos and music/sounds for a more

into the past with the elections in the near future.
