Silliman University is home to over 9,000 students. Of this number, around 300 are international from 44 countries across the globe.
The University is an ideal choice for students in search of the best of a laid-back environment located within the progressive and safe University Town of Dumaguete. Nature is at its best on Silliman's 62-hectare campus. Over 300 age-old acacia trees dot the sprawling campus that is cradled with views of the Bohol Sea to its east and the Cuernos de Negros Mountains to its west.
On our campus, students can freely bike around, skate, or enjoy an early morning or afternoon jog. Here, they develop strong and lasting bonds of friendship with each other. During weekends, or after an exam week, some plan a trip to nearby tourist spots listed among the Philippines' must-visits: San Jose for the Twin Lakes, Siaton for Lake Balanan, Bais for the dolphins, Apo Island for snorkeling, diving and the marine reserves, and Oslob for the whale sharks.
