  • Es patrimonio de la humanidad!
  • Great University, good teachers, magnificent architectural structure, filled with light, but it neglected. The politicking to a political side and internal corruption within it has made a very decadent University. However, educational excellence is still standing and trying to survive the difficulties, or rather, trying to overcome the shadows.
