The Lyceum of the Philippines University (Filipino: Pamantasang Liseo ng Pilipinas, abbreviated LPU) is an institute of higher education located in Intramuros in the City of Manila, Philippines. It was founded in 1952 by Dr. José P. Laurel, who became the third president of the Philippines, making LPU the only school founded by a Philippine president. He named the institution after lykeion, the grove in ancient Athens where Aristotle taught his pupils. Its educational vision is founded on principles that its founder, José P. Laurel, set down. It opened its gates to its first students on July 7, 1952. Two of LPU's most prominent features are its entrance through the "Hall of Heroes", commonly known as "Mabini Hall", which exhibits busts of revered Philippine historical figures sculpted by the National Artist Guillermo Tolentino and the famous "Lyceum Tower" which serves as Lyceum's trademark and stands witness to the university's history and continuing progress. Many disciplines are taught in the university, with International relations (diplomacy, international trade), business, communication and International Hospitality (hotel and restaurant management, tourism) consistently being the university's flagship courses. The LPU has affiliate/branch campuses in Makati, Batangas, Laguna and Cavite.
