Org Profile

Members of the UPSS during the Padunungan 2011

The UP Subol Society (UPSS) is a non-stock, non-profit, university-based organization of Pangasinan students in the University of the Philippines. Our organization’s principal focus is service to the people of our beloved province. Throughout its 42-year history, the UPSS has constantly functioned as a vibrant avenue for greater involvement and meaningful interaction of Pangasinan students in the pursuit of common goals and actions for the advancement of a purposive scholarship in the University.


The UP SUBOL SOCIETY, founded in 1975, as a legacy in itself of the dynamic “subol”, the Pangasinan word for spring and as an organization that has accepted the sacred thrust of leadership and service to the people from the university continues to be a wellspring of ideas, talents, socio-civic mindedness and academic consciousness. The organization is still a venue for the preservation and promotion of Pangasinan culture, the rendition of service to the province and the integration of Pangasinan students into the university culture.

Throughout the years, the Baguio and Diliman (formerly including the Los Baños and Manila campuses) chapters of the UP Subol Society (UPSS) have participated in several University activities such as the Annual UP Fair, freshmen-oriented service programs, Alternative Classroom Learning Experience (ACLE) and mobilizations. The UPSS has also sponsored University theater plays and films, ticket raffles and food and Valentine balloons and garments sales for raising funds. In line of its cultural goal, it holds semestral exhibits of Pangasinan artists, tourism, and culture in the university. More importantly, the organization has initiated tree-planting projects, UPCAT reviews and Course Orientation programs for senior high school students, marathon events, free medical, dental and circumcision clinics, sand-castle making contests at the beach on “Pistay Dayat” (Sea Festival) and poster-making,crossword puzzle and Pangasinan jumbled words for Pangasinan high school students. The organization also has sports fests, talent shows, exposure trips and discussion groups for its members.

Among all these projects, however, the Annual Quiz Show also known as PADUNUNGAN is the most significant and difficult undertaking. Since 1977, when the first Quiz Show was held, UPSS earnestly strives to maximize available resources to improve each Quiz Show. This is because PADUNUNGAN is the fulfillment of the “subol” that is within every member and the microcosm of the ideal education that UPSS envisions for all youth, which is “education is not mere academics”.

Together with the review, the orientation programs aim to give a comprehensive guide to college life.

Adings Project
This project is UP Subol Society's long-term commitment in making sure underprivileged youths grow to the best that they can be.
