MANILA, Philippines – Following exponential growth in its law enrollment rate in school year 2015-2016, Manuel L. Quezon University made another significant move to Quezon City last Aug. 19, coinciding with the 138th birth anniversary of the city’s visionary and former Philippine Commonwealth president, Manuel Luis Quezon.

Dubbed “Quezon is Home,” the event featured MLQU’s symbolic move to continue its legacy from Quiapo, Manila to Quezon City with the unveiling of the late president’s portrait done by the late National Artist Fernando Amorsolo.

Just like the school, the city was named after the former president and it celebrates Quezon Day every Aug. 19.

The event was held at the MLQU School for Professional Advancement and Continuing Education (MLQU SPACE) located on EDSA near the MRT-Kamuning station.

Quezon City Rep. Feliciano Belmonte Jr., former senator Wigberto Tañada and former trade secretary Peter Favila joined in the celebration led by MLQU and New San Jose Builders’ chairman Jose Rizalino Acuzar and MLQU president and NSJBI co-chairman Isagani Germar. Commission on Higher Education executive director Julito Vitriolo and Philippine Regulatory Commission chairman Eduardo Ong were also present during the occasion.
