Adamson University, Manila

Adamson University, Manila

Starting from a single classroom school, the Adamson School of Industrial Chemistry (ASIC) grew into a fully-fledged university and recently, in 2007, celebrated its Diamond Jubilee after which it was declared the site of historical importance. A humble beginning from founder Dr. George Adamson and tireless efforts put in by his family and administrators have taken the ASIC to the status of a university that offers courses not only in chemistry but also in architecture, arts, law and theology, to name but a few. The university was founded as a secular institution, but the ownership transfer in 1964 to Vincentian Fathers had it turned into a Catholic one. As a result, daily masses and the theology department were introduced to reinforce the path the University would take in the years to come. Today, Adamson University proudly stands as a Catholic institution in Manila offering quality education to one and all.

Every person associated with the Adamson University is aware of its patron, St.Vincent de Paul, and strives to achieve excellence while being compassionate and sensitive to the needs of others. The university aims at achieving overall social development and provision of equal opportunities to everybody.

In addition to having state-of-the-art facilities for learning and sports, the university has some excellent pieces of architecture that have made it a tourist attraction as well.
