THE PONTIFICAL University now has 17 National Artists with former Varsitarian literary editor Cirilo Bautista and the late architecture alumnus Jose Maria Zaragoza joining the roster after their conferment and elevation to the Order of National Artists (ONA) in Malacanang ceremonies by President Aquino III last April 14.
