  • The Ferdinand Edralin Marcos College of Martial Law;
  • The Vicente Castelo Sotto III Creative Writing Center;
  • The Liwayway Gawgaw Tapia College of Education;
  • The Manuel “Lito” Lapid College of Superhuman Kinetics;
  • The UP MAROONONGS (to replace MAROONS; pampataas ng confidence levels, esp for the basketball team);
  • The Gloria Macapagal Arroyo National College of Public Administreyshen and Governance;
  • The Wilfredo Buendia Revillame College of Mass Hysterical Communications;
  • The Lucio Tan School of Contractual Labor and Industrial Relations;
  • The Henry Sy, Sr. University Shopping Center (pushing for “Mart“);
  • The Sixto Serrano Brillantes, Jr. Financial Assistance Program (To be known as the Sixto-FAP) with Brackets 60, 30, and 10;
  • The Imelda Romualdez Marcos Sunken Garden of Truth, Goodness, and All Things Beautiful;and
  • The Zobel de Ayala Public-Private-Partnership University of the Philippines
