The Ateneo de Manila University (Ateneo for short) is the longest running Filipino sitcom-cum-so-called "educational institution" located at Loyola Heights, a disturbingly upscale subdivision located smack in the heart of Manila's festive Catholic ghetto district. It is also known as the nation's most prestigious parking lot. Founded in 1859 by a lost and drunken bunch of Jesuits who accidentally lost their map en route to propagate grapes in California, this overly pretentious university has been known to produce some of the most educated Filipino call center employees on graveyard shift, who use their spare time playing Minesweeper and Defense of the Ancients.
As a predominantly Catholic institution, Ateneo's so-called "educational system" (ha ha!) is guided mostly by nuns with wooden rulers, who wander like those strange guys in the "Dark City" movie, waiting to devour easy prey who attempt to run in the hallways. Legend among students, however, states that the true power behind the institution's fiendish operations is the mummified body of Pitch Pablo, a MAGIS teacher found in his very own classroom underneath the campus. Loyola had been known to once upon a time help finance the founding of Ateneo by stealing more than half of De La Salle University's basketball scholarship funds.
Although records credit the Jesuits as the founders of the Ateneo in 1859, it was actually through the collective efforts of seven Magical Girls, lusty for power, that the University has prospered through the years. With the combined efforts of the Vatican and the cosmic finesse of Teletubby porn, the Ateneo quickly grew from a sorry-ass landfill to the even bigger landfill that it is today.
It could not be stated enough that Ateneo de Manila's first students were all originally male preteen sluts who, prior to admission, had nothing better to do than wander around and whore themselves in Manila's first Spanish colonial-inspired shopping malls. Due to changing times, however, the University's administration eventually decided at the turn of the century to freely open up admission to everyone who they could smuggle out of De La Salle University. This dignified culture of academic exchange is of course still being practiced today, but only after 9:00 PM when the Department of Communication Building shuts down.
One cannot simply become an Atenean: he or she must first and foremost show vehement hatred towards De La Salle University; even then, the Atenean must declare an oath to pray like a Jesuit and rabidly support all of the school's basketball pursuits, of which the rest of the world doesn't give a shit about.
The pedophile Jesuits who run Ateneo usually take charge of the aforementioned nuns with wooden sticks, although people are more inclined to believe that these nuns are actually victims of the Jesuits themselves, created through demonic midnight rites at their pretentiously named "Church of the Gesu."
Many Ateneans are known to stay as undergraduates even if they're well into their middle ages; it seems pretty normal, for example, to randomly call out "Hoy paaaaa-re!" and have at least three balding fogeys in campus jackets looking back at you. Guided by hallucinatory dreams of basketball games past, these old men have been known to hit on the young socialite girls in campus, preferrably the ones with long, dark, curly armpit hair.
One cannot simply be an Atenean; although enrollment figures remain steady each semester, Ateneo de Manila strictly regulates its studentry through the use of "Conio English," a horrid distortion of Spanish, English and whatever dialect college kids use nowadays. Two Atenean males can actually understand the phrase "Uy, Ruel pinga-ed up his girlfriend, paaaa-re!" without wincing in confusion or disgust. What's more, this bastard language becomes even more confusing when the girls use it: "Kadiri ha, I'm not touching that!"
