Launch of the Online Magazine Version with Augmented Reality Front Cover for iPhone and Android

The University of the Philippines System – Office of Alumni Relations (UPS – OAR) is proud to release the fifth issue of UP Carillon Magazine, the official publication of the University of the Philippines alumni. The 2021 issue features UP Baguio in celebration of its 60th Founding Anniversary with the Museo Kordilyera on the front cover, with a special Augmented Reality (AR) treat for both iPhone and Android.

The 2021 Carillon Magazine also includes stories of our alumni in the Philippines and abroad by featuring selected accredited UP Alumni Chapters. For every issue, UP Carillon has the following sections to acknowledge Honor and Excellence of exemplary UP Alumni in the different disciplines: Arts, Science, Social Sciences, and Sports.

Back due to popular demand are other special sections such as POP-UP or Pop Culture in UP, as well as Hindsight, which is a look back on milestones in UP History that may be of interest to the UP Alumni Community. Regular sections like In Memoriam, Accolades, and Topnotchers List are still part of the issue to recognize our supportive and outstanding alumni.

As in every issue, the UP Carillon also features stories about the alumni participation and involvement in the different UP Constituent Units through the CU Hopping Section as a way to connect with our alumni by inspiring them to take an active interest in building a university that is relevant to the changing times.

For the UP Carillon’s Inaugural 2017 issue, the Cover Photo and Cover Story were about UP Diliman, while the 2018 issue featured UP Cebu’s Centennial. The 2019 commemorated the UP Los Baños 110th Founding Anniversary Celebration, and last year’s 2020 issue highlighted UP Manila and the university’s COVID-19 initiatives as a response to the pandemic.
