MANILA, Philippines — The fourth campus of the University of Caloocan City (UCC) is set to rise in Barangay Bagong Silang, the local government announced.

“This is my gift for Caloocan students on my birthday — the construction of another UCC campus for those who want to be engineers,” he said in a speech in Filipino. “We want more students to have access to quality education.”

UCC Congressional and EDSA campuses were also built under Malapitan’s term, the local government noted.
