"Showcase of Thomasian Culture" displays photos of annual affairs in UST, such as Paskuhan and the Baccalaureate Mass. "Record Breaker" reviews the memories when the Philippines’ Catholic university formed the Largest Human Cross and eventually entered the Guinness World Records last year. "Royal, Pontifical, Spectacular," meanwhile, maps out the UST campus, showing all the UST landmarks at their most spectacular angles. "UST in Paris" documents last year’s event when UNESCO paid tribute to UST's Quadricentennial. "Our Fathers" will give a glimpse of the Domicans’ life inside the university and "Quadricentennial Celebration" recaps the yearlong celebration of UST’s 400th anniversary.

Photos in the exhibit will be available for sale. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the victims of typhoon "Sendong," and "Simbahayan," the centerpiece project of the Quadricentennial celebration where UST will rehabilitate 400 villages through medical, literacy, community and peace "interventions."
