THE VARSITARIAN, in its 86 years of existence as UST’s premier chronicler, has produced big names in various fields, some of whom became National Artists—F. Sionil Jose, Bienvenido Lumbera, and J. Elizalde Navarro.

Many sterling names in Philippine journalism were V staffers such as Teodoro Valencia, Joe Guevarra, Felix Bautista, Jose Bautisa, Joe Burgos, Jullie Yap-Daza, Rina Jimenez-David, Neal Cruz, Alice Colet Villadolid, and Eugenia Duran-Apostol among others.

Varsitarian alumni also distinguished themselves in public service and in other fields. There are the late Manila Mayor Arsenio H. Lacson, the late Manila Archbishop Artemio Casas, former Vice-president Emmanuel Pelaez, the late Sorsogon Gov. Juan Frivaldo, Sen. Francisco Tatad, and former Philippine Medical Association president Dr. Vicente Rosales, Sr.
