UST FLOODING ADVISORY: From the Office of the Secretary-General
Due to the large number of students stranded inside the campus and on the road as an aftermath of the sudden downpour followed by a flash flood that lasted until early morning, CLASSES IN ALL LEVELS are SUSPENDED today 11 SEPTEMBER 2012, to allow them to go home and rest.
Another newsflash regarding UST flooding that is seemingly becoming more frequent nowadays. And yes, you were one of the more than a thousand students who were stranded within the confines of the flooded UST campus in the night of September 10, 2012.
And because you could not catch a jeepney or a taxi or you wouldn’t risk your car stalling in the almost knee-deep flood along Lacson Avenue, you again stayed the night over in one of the buildings in UST.

How easy it could have been if you could just wear your rain boots and walked just a few hundred meters away to your ‘home’ away from home just across Espana Boulevard.
No need for waiting for hours for a jeepney, bus or taxi that would not come. No need to stay in your car stuck in the middle of traffic in a flooded side street of Sampaloc. Goodbye to UST flooding with just a few steps.
How life could be easier if you could just walk away from all these concerns and come home to DORMUS.
