Graduation time is your crowning glory, as you march up the podium dressed in ecru-white gown or ecru-white barong and sablay, you will be marching to the tune of the hymn below, the UP Hymn.
Honestly I didn't memorize this, but it is a must that as a student of U.P. system, we should know how to sing this. Up to now I still don't, Will I graduate?
UP Naming Mahal lyrics
U.P. naming mahal, pamantasang hirang;
Ang tinig namin, sana'y inyong dinggin;
Malayong lupain, amin mang marating;
Di rin magbabago ang damdamin;
Di rin magbabago ang damdamin.
Luntian at pula, Sagisag magpakailanman;
Ating pagdiwang, bulwagan ng dangal;
Humayo't itanghal, giting at tapang;
Mabuhay ang pag-asa ng bayan;
Mabuhay ang pag-asa ng bayan.
