The influence and impact of the International State College of the Philippines (ISCP)

We’re all proud Blue Aspins at this point.

The International State College of the Philippines, also known as the “ISCP”, has been continuously making waves and noise all over local Filipino Twitter and Facebook.

The reason? Their cleverly made-up course offerings paired with Filipino meme culture, personalities joining in the school’s gimmicks, and their announcement posts and website looking 1023298x better than most real schools.

But wait, where did this International State College of the Philippines first begin?

The memes and hilarity began last July 31, 2022, when the ISCP Facebook page was first created. As of writing, however, the page is currently unavailable. But seeing as how vast their reach has come in just a matter of days, you’ll get to see at least one or two references all over Twitter, Facebook, or Reddit.

Or better yet just take a good look at their official International State College of the Philippines website. They’re complete with their main course offerings, entrance exam results, ISCP Publication, and they even have their own hymn and “mission & vision”.

In fact, the “ISCP” has become such a hot topic that it already captured the hearts of most Filipino Gen Z on the Internet.

Remember that time when Kuya Kim Atienza was shookt because he was appointed as Dean in the College of Education and called the ISCP a scam before his followers told him what it was all about? Yeah, us too. Now he’s fully embraced his appointment as the Dean in the College of Education, giving assignments and all.

Take note, an actual personality was fooled by this seemingly legit-looking website/satire-meme page. That’s how real the whole thing looks. And it’s not just an isolated case where it happened to just a small group of people. It actually did fool a lot of people online.

Want to be a full-blown Blue Aspin and be a witness to the actual impact of the ISCP? Join in the fun right here.
