Knowing institutional philosophy
While student William Orozco Restrepo, student president of the Civil Engineering career said that these assemblies are important to the student because that way all the institutional work is known, starting from philosophy and internal regulations, "I was struck by the environmental awareness work that the university has, for me it is very good, it is a university that has an environmental goal of mutual benefit , I wish all universities had that spirit of belonging for the environment," the student said.
