Kapuluan Study Center formally opened as a cultural and activity center for young men on June 9, 1984. It is a project of the University Center Foundation, a non-stock and non-profit private corporation.
Mission and Activities
Kapuluan aims to develop students into better individuals through various educational and formative activities in an atmosphere of friendship, clean fun, and good living — something the students find uniquely appealing in the Center.
Kapuluan provides young men with ample yet thorough programs that effectively contribute to their human, academic, professional, cultural and spiritual formation, encouraging them to seek personal excellence with a deep Christian spirit.
Weekends at the Center are usually spent with recreational activities such as sports and excursions. Longer academic breaks are usually spent in out-of-town seminars and workshops, which develop social concern and proper civic habits among students.
Thanks to various benefactors who share our vision, Kapuluan can offer its activities without collecting regular membership fees. Students who frequent the Center’s activities are encouraged to later on contribute to society in their own way as their means of returning the benefits they have received from their formation in the Center.
Kapuluan and Opus Dei
The spiritual formation imparted in Kapuluan is entrusted to Opus Dei, a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church. Opus Dei was founded by St. Josemaria Escriva, a modern saint who taught untiringly that ordinary people are called to holiness in their professional and social duties.
