The Chronicles of Robert: Silliman’s Quirky Arboreal Icon

By Robert the Tree | April 5, 2024

In the leafy confines of Silliman University, amidst the scholarly hustle, resides an unexpected luminary – Robert, the tree. Yes, you heard it right. Robert is not your ordinary oak or maple; he’s a tree with a name, a personality, and a penchant for existential banter.

Students strolling by, textbooks in hand, are greeted by a resounding declaration, “Greetings, dear scholars! I am Robert, the tree.” Cue the perplexed stares and nervous laughter. But Robert isn’t deterred. Oh no, he revels in his arboreal identity.

With a flair for the dramatic that rivals Shakespearean soliloquies, Robert beckons students to visit him, promising tales of treehood and existential wisdom. And when they visit, they are drawn to the enigmatic charm of Robert.

Amidst the rustling leaves and whispered conversations, Robert’s antics serve as a reminder – in a world of conformity, embrace your quirks. If a tree can proudly proclaim its name to passing scholars, surely there’s room for us all to celebrate our uniqueness.

So, the next time you find yourself wandering the paths of Silliman University, keep an eye out for Robert, the arboreal icon with a penchant for philosophical musings. Who knows? You might find yourself engaged in a conversation rooted in wisdom and sprinkled with a touch of whimsy.
