La Nacho: Much More Than a University

The National University's Bogotá campus, known fondly as 'La Nacho,' is Colombia's biggest university and widely known for its frequent protests and radical leftist graffiti.

But the university is also much more: a community, a sports complex, a place for art and culture.

I love the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, the best in the country, it doesnt matter is not the most expensive, or with a luxury campus. Is the best, the place where our Nobel studied, where you can dance, investigate, read, practice sports or whatever, aswell get crazy.... contrasts everywhere. Lets save the public education around the world!!!
