    There is at least a club for every concentrations. Some engineering concentration may have more than one.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are a mathematical or science type of student, then the Engineering and Sciences classes will be a hit. However, if you are more a humanities and arts type of student, of you're going to the department of humanities, ok, if you study something different, it is not impossible, but very hard. Unfortunately this campus don't want to mix arts with science.

    There are many extracurricular activities to participate, but for having fun outside campus there is a cinema in the mall, bars, theaters, and some hang out places.

    Depending on the concentration, it is from medium to really hard. Engineering has a lot of mathematical and science courses that may overwhelm anyone, but with effort and knowing to whom you're taking classes, you can be ok. Some concentrations are updated, but there are still others that haven't updated since the 1980's.

When you pay a bit to live in the center of the town more you can get everywhere on foot.

    Academic Rigor

    You'll have to work hard and study often, but in the end you will learn a lot. It has a very competitive atmosphere in the sense that everyone wants to get in the University, sow there is no room for slackers.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to look early for living space. Having to drive to class everyday will be an unnecessary cost when there are many places to live which are walking distance.
