Pangilinan finished a degree in Comparative Literature at UP-Diliman and he was a member of the school’s men’s volleyball team.

The 58-year-old career politician also finished with a law degree from the prestigious UP College of Law.

In a Facebook post from Pangilinan’s page yesterday, some members of the UP squad such as Zav Lucero, Noah Webb, James Spencer, Anton Eusebio, and AJ Madrigal wore t-shirts in support of his candidacy for the second-highest post in the land.
