The Benildean is the official student magazine of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, crafted by a team of writers and creatives from the Benildean Press Corps (BPC), the official student-journalists’ organization of the College. We cater to the needs of the Benildean community by providing various services in the fields of journalism, visual, and literary arts.

Brand DNA

Creative
We are driven not only by our passion to create—we are fueled by the desire to blaze paths, to connect, and to help our audience discover. To be creative is everything that we are and all that we do.
Youthful
We serve as a mirror of the culture, life and times of the youth of today––showcasing things that matter in ways the current generation can best appreciate and understand.
Smart
Not a show of intelligence, but an attitude—our aim is to engage, to compel, and to discuss. The Benildean is more than his or her talents.
