The Carillon is the official UP alumni newsletter, published since the 1950s. Its publication and distribution are managed by the UP System Office of Alumni Relations with the Director as official editor. With the objective of giving UP alumni a continuing communication link with and a sense of connection to the University and fellow alumni, The Carillon contains original feature articles from the different UP units, UP alumni chapters, and from fellow individual alumni. The new 2022 issue has UP Visayas Diwata ng Dagat statue in its front cover which may be viewed in Augmented Reality using iPhone (running at least iOS 13), iPad (running at least iPadOS 13), and Android. Feature stories include the Diwata ng Dagat and UPV’s 75-Year History as Cover Story; the story of five decades of alumni engagement of the UP SILAK Brotherhood and UP SILAB Sisterhood in UP Visayas; and a Spotlight on the Ilonggo-born brotherhood and sisterhood of UP Hamili and UP Hamilia. A special treat is the centerspread photo essay of select locations in Revisiting the University of the Philippines Visayas. Additionally, the issue also includes stories of our alumni in the Philippines and abroad. Regular sections like In Memoriam, Accolades, and Topnotchers List are still part of the issue to recognize our supportive and outstanding alumni.


The UP Carillon Magazine is the official publication of the Alumni of the University of the Philippines. It provides a direct communication link to our alumni with stories and updates on campus developments, alumni updates, and other relevant information that will galvanize their sense of connection to the University. It has been published as a quarterly newsletter since the 1950s but was discontinued in 2008 due to the financial issues. In 2017, the UP Carillon was re-launched as an annual full-color Alumni Magazine to meet the information needs of our alumni who prefer a hard copy over the online magazine option. About 2,000 units of UP Carillon Magazine are distributed during UP Alumni Homecoming events in the Philippines and abroad. However, with the advent of the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education (RA 10931), which provides for free tuition and other school fees in State Universities and Colleges, the UPS-OAR can no longer collect Alumni Fees to cover the publication costs of the UP Carillon Magazine. In this light, we would like to seek your support for the continued production and publication of UP Carillon Magazine, which inspires our alumni to take an active interest in building a university that is relevant to the changing times.
