Is the University of the Philippines at Diliman (U.P. Diliman) haunted? Anecdotal evidence from the Facebook page, Taga U.P. Diliman ka Kung (TUPDKK) seems to indicate so. The Diliman Diary conducted a content review of the thousands of posts from members (now numbering at approximately 35,000) and there were many anecdotes about paranormal sightings in U.P. Diliman. One of the most frequently cited hub for paranormal sightings was the U.P. College of Education.
The Diliman Diary researched the U.P. library archives and talked to personnel from U.P. Diliman's Office of the Campus Architect, and was able to determine that the Colege of Education and the College of war were the joint headquarters of the Japanese military during World War II, and were never demolished per se, despite all the intense fighting around Metro Manila.
The Diliman Diary requested permission from the Dean of the U.P. College of Education, Dina S. Ocampo to conduct a paranormal investigation during the witching hours (from midnight to three a.m.) at the College of Education, but this request was denied, so as to preserve the good image of the U.P. College of Education.
Significantly, though, the Dean did not deny per se that there were paranormal sightings at the U.P. College of Education.
In the meantime, the Diliman Diary's paranormal investigations are still continuing, and we shall keep our readers updated on every development as they come in.
