What’s happening at The University of Guadalajara / Coastal University Campus in Puerto Vallarta!


Every Wednesday and Friday at 1 pm in the main auditorium full length films are screened.  On Friday September 8 we will be showing “One Last and We Will” starring Héctor Bonilla y José Sefami.  It is about a seven-member Mariachi band that leave their small village for the first time to participate in a competition in Mexico City. The problems start when they discover that they require an eighth member to participate, so they integrate a young rocker and antics ensue.

On Wednesday Sept. 13 come watch the 2013 KINGS OF LEON concert filmed in Chile. The group has twelve Grammy Award nominations, including four wins.  It consist of four brothers from Nashville TN.

September 1st was an historical day at the UDG. The first four students from the Visual Arts Major received their degrees. Migue García Martínez, Alexa Samantha Gutiérrez Hernández, Andrea Andrade Salazar, and Dolores Adriana Mijangos Monroy. Dr. Edmundo Andrade Romo, Coordinator of the Degree in Visual  Arts, was very happy to give them their diplomas.  We wish all of them the very best.
