Concessionaires converge at the two-storey University Canteen to give students a wide array of choices for snacks and meals. Presented fast-food style, students serve themselves and recharge their energies in a multi-colored canteen to make mealtime a joyful moment with classmates and teachers. But since this is where food for the day is handled, utmost cooperation is needed to keep it clean, orderly and efficient. After taking their meals, students must put trash in waste cans, and trays and utensils in racks where they belong. With nutritious food and clean surroundings, all are assured of enjoyable mealtimes. The Foodcourt is open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
The Bookstore addresses students’ need for textbooks and manuals for their academic requirements. School supplies and uniforms are available too. Located at the annex building, it is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.
All over the campus and in every building are seen men and women in blue uniform, their hands busy keeping the surroundings neat and orderly, and a feast to the eyes. They are the Housekeepers of the academic community whose caring hands shape a beautiful campus that inspires students as they go about their academic and leadership tasks. Please note that even in the midst of busy city life, so much natural beauty abounds in the TUA campus. But much is expected of students as well. Though there are Housekeepers, preserving nature is equally the students’ own responsibility. Without their own caring, the efforts of these dedicated Housekeepers will be fruitless.
