This past Monday the Consul General from the United States Consulate in Guadalajara, Robin Matthewman, and Rachel Schofer, the American Citizen Services Chief visited the campus for meeting with President Dr. Marco Antonio Cortés Guardado.   

During the meeting, general topics of the University were discussed, such as educational programs offered, the student and academic community, as well as specific projects of the University, such as the International Forum of Sculptors, the International Film Festival and the recently opened film library, among other topics. 

After the meeting they were taken on a tour of the campus including the esplanade of the Dr. Juan Luis Cifuentes Lemus auditorium, where they viewed the sculptures from the past International Forum of Sculptors 2018.  

After the tour, I had the opportunity to interview them at the campus radio station for my “Good Morning Wake Up Show”.   The interview will be aired this coming Saturday morning at 9am. To listen to the interview tune in to 104.3 FM or web link http://udgtv.com/radio-puerto-vallarta/en-vivo

The UDG CUC would like to congratulate all of the students who will be graduating in the next few days.  They have worked very hard to achieve this great feat.   We wish them the best and hope they have great success in the future.

The fall semester is almost over and everything is slowing down at the UDG CUC for the Christmas holidays.   I have decided to take a short break from writing this weekly column but I promise to restart again in mid-January informing everyone of all the exciting events that will be taking place at the UDG CUC.   

I hope you will still tune in to my radio show every Saturday at 9 am.  You can find it on the net at    http://udgtv.com/radio-puerto-vallarta/en-vivo, or tune your radio to 104.3 FM.  If you want to hear past shows you can do so by going to this web site: http://podcastudg.com/especiales.html Or google= UDG RADIO 104.3 FM.    

And remember: 

“The difference between school and life. In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test.  In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
