What’s Happening at The University of Guadalajara / Coastal University Campus, in Puerto Vallarta?


First I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Mr. Dennis Rike and The Jay Sadler Project for donating some new headphones to the UDG CUC Radio station.  Dennis has been on my “Good Morning Wake Up Show” many times talking about the great projects The American Legion Post

#14 and The Jay Sadler Project have done in the past years for many of the local schools and orphanages.  Dennis noticed that the headphones we have at the UDG Radio are in very poor shape, held together with duct tape and zip ties.  Due to the UDG being funded by the Mexican Government, money is very hard to get, and new headphones were not very high up on the list of priorities. The truth is they were not on the list at all.  Last year I bought my own. But now, thanks to Dennis, we have two new sets for the other people who work at the radio station.

On June 1 at 1 pm in the main auditorium we will be showing the 2014 movie “The Amazing Catfish”  by Mexican director Claudia Sainte-Luce and staring Lisa Owen, Ximena Ayala, Sonia Franco, Wendy Guillén, Andrea Baeza.


On Wednesday, June 7 we will be showing a concert film starring Roger Waters, the English singer, songwriter, bassist, and composer, who in 1965, co-founded the progressive rock band Pink Floyd with drummer Nick Mason, keyboardist Rick Wright, and guitarist, singer, and songwriter Syd Barrett.

All the movies are free and open to the public.

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

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.

Happy trails to you. ‘Til we meet again,
