The UP Planner Project started in the summer of 2010 as an ad hoc venture by an alliance of student organizations and individuals from the University of the PhilippinesóDiliman.
The following year, the Project was revamped and upgraded into a brand of its own. This project now includes the production of the Academic Year Planner and the staging of its launch event, both of which aim to foster school spirit and camaraderie among the students, faculty, and alumni of the University.
This 2012, the UP Academic Planner Team launches the third UP Academic Planner with the theme Pusong Peyups. Designed by and for members of the UP community, the planner sports a kitschy, dynamic design to win over the hearts of many an Isko and Iska.
Within its pages lie a treasure trove of relevant information, university trivia and other niceties like practical tips, anecdotes and important dates. Such dates include national and international holidays, plus the academic calendars of UP campuses from Luzon to Mindanao.
Each month features customized content to aid students in appreciating -- if not maximizing -- their four or more years of UP education. Topics discussed in the monthly write-ups include enrollment tips for June, campus ghost stories for October, nutrition advice for January, procrastination DO's and DON'Ts for March, and a free-spirited BAKIT HINDI? List for April.
The planner also contains six pages of freebie and discount coupons from over thirty partner establishments as a reward and tribute to the resilient Iskolar ng Bayan.
Year in and year out, we seek to enhance the experience of owning a UP Planner by providing its owners with a tangible means to achieve academic excellence, to gain a sense of school pride and to be proactive with their schedules in the most holistic and creative way possible.
At the end of the school year, it is our hope that Iskos and Iskas can look back at the year that was not only with their well-worn UP Academic Planner in hand, but with eons more knowledge (the kind obtainable from inside and outside the classroom) in their minds and with a renewed love for life, for the country and for the university in their hearts.
