We invite you to join the SUAM (Senior Citizens Program) free Spanish class. The Intermediate Level is every Wednesday from 9:00am to 11:30, Basic Level is every Friday from 11:00am till 12:30pm.

This is an opportunity for you to learn Spanish at no cost to you. Classes are held at the UdG CUC campus located on the road behind Home Depot going towards Ixtapa.  You will pass two Pemex stations on your left and a Global Gas Plant on your right. There is an OXXO at the stoplight where you turn right. You will see six giant letters UDG CUC. Please join us.


Science Saturday will take place this Saturday at 10 am in the main auditorium.  This free program is designed for children aged 3 to 16 years. This week Dra. Laura Alicia Aguilar will host and teach all about EL CACAO or chocolate.  It will be as fun as it tastes. Everyone will learn and have a finger licking good time.

On Sunday, October 28 at 8 am the UdG CUC will host The Black Lions Race with 2km, 5km and 10km races.

Remember the university screens free movies every Wednesday and Friday at 1 pm in the main (air conditioned) auditorium. This week they will show a documentary film titled Mexico 2018.

“The truth is not killed” (premiered in May) is the new feature-length documentary of Ojos de Perro vs Impunidad: It is a chronicle of the three bloodiest years of the struggle of journalism in defense of freedom of expression in Mexico. It presents the stories of those who fell and also of those who continue to struggle, of their fears and weaknesses, of their courage and strengths, of a passionate commitment with society that they serve, with the search for truth and with the refusal to be crushed by power. The filmmakers are the same as the documentary film “Mirar Morir, El Ejército en la noche de Iguala” and the short film “Afromexicanos, La Discriminacion Invisible” (Coizta Grecko, Juan Castro Gessner and Témoris Grecko),

I encourage you to look at the UDG CUC website each week to get the latest news about all the events taking place on campus.  www.cuc.udg.mx

My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said, “I want a second opinion”. He said “Okay, you’re ugly too!”
