College of Social Science and Philosophy: Palma Hall

It is impossible for a UP Diliman undergraduate student to never set foot in this building. But I am 100% certain that the probability of everyone setting foot on the Fourth Floor of the bustling Palma Hall is reduced to 25%. After all, there are only 20(!) subjects/departments that use this floor (well, at least this semester, AY 2005-2006):

  1. Anthropology
  2. Araling Pilipino
  3. Comparative Literature
  4. English
  5. Filipino
  6. Hapon
  7. Humanidades
  8. Intsik
  9. Kasayasayan
  10. Kasanayan sa Komunikasyon
  11. Koreyano
  12. Lingguistics
  13. Malikhaing Pagsusulat
  14. Panitikan ng Pilipinas
  15. Philosophy
  16. Philippine Institutions
  17. Political Science
  18. Sociology
  19. Social Science
  20. Speculative Thought
To study in UP-D and to be a stalker. All you need is CRS and People Search. How else will I know that when I saw two of my CW 198 classmates, that their class was CL 122 under Dr. Carlos Aureus (which happened to be in the "last room" in the building)?

According to the CSSP student who accompanied me, the fourth floor wasn't only filled with the 20 un-airconditioned classrooms (ranging from Room 402 - 440, even numbers only, although Rooms 424-428 appear like a huge divisible classroom). Aside from these classrooms located on the left from the center staircase, if you turn right, you see the CSSP Multimedia Room. It's a facility for lease, that provides venue, sound system and LCD projector at varying discriminatory rates.

The dark hall seen in this photo leads to the CSSP Multimedia RoomWhile the Multimedia Room is to the left of this^hall, to the right are classrooms, 400 A, B & C (the Multimedia Room was D). They had alien looking, pretty blue chairs in the set.
