* Unibersidad ng Santo Tomas
Rizal was a student of the University of Santo Tomas in Intramuros from 1877 to 1882. A historical marker is located in the UST Campus in Espana, Sampaloc, Manila.
Rizal in UST
During the 1877th year, he transferred to the University of Santo Tomas to continue his studies.
He was then a new college student – a frosh who was very new to the environment. His sacrifices in Ateneo did not end just as they were. His new classmates in UST also did the same thing – they discriminated him more. But not just that. During this time, even the Dominican friars were discriminating him. It was the very first time in which Rizal witnessed the friars doing something like that. From that day onwards, he saw by his heart that the ones that he treated as the good ones are the ones who would trigger the present condition. This made him realize that the enormous problem of our country is because of the friars. He wrote, “Mga Alaala ng isang Mag-aaral sa Maynila”.
