Residence Hall Area and Church of The Gesu
Further down Father Masterson Drive are Alingal Hall, the Cervini-Eliazo Residence Halls (dormitories for men and women), the Church of the Gesu, the John Pollock Renewal Center, and the University Dormitory. The Church of the Gesu holds 1,000 people and features a nineteen-bell carillon. Behind the Church of the Gesu are the Cervini-Eliazo Residence Halls and University Dormitory that have a combined capacity of more than 800 beds. The John Pollock Renewal Center is used for retreats and workshops.
All the residence halls have a commanding view of the Marikina Valley and the Sierra Madre.

“To impose celibacy on such a large body as the clergy of the Catholic Church is not to forbid it to have wives but to order it to be content with the wives of others.”
—Jean-Jacques Rousseau (17121778)
“My residence was more favorable, not only to thought, but to serious reading, than a university; and though I was beyond the range of the ordinary circulating library, I had more than ever come within the influence of those books which circulate round the world, whose sentences were first written on bark, and are now merely copied from time to time on to linen paper.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The actors today really need the whip hand. Theyre so lazy. They havent got the sense of pride in their profession that the less socially elevated musical comedy and music hall people or acrobats have. The theater has never been any good since the actors became gentlemen.”
—W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
“Now for civil service reform. Legislation must be prepared and executive rules and maxims. We must limit and narrow the area of patronage. We must diminish the evils of office-seeking. We must stop interference of federal officers with elections. We must be relieved of congressional dictation as to appointments.”
—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (18221893)
