To talk about higher education and to leave the academic spirit out would not be correct. It is the academic spirit that makes the time you will spend here at IPCB unforgettable. The tunas, the costumes, the traditions, the festivals and festivals, the latada and the burning. It’s these small details that make these years, which you will now begin, the best time of your life. The companionship that is cultivated in class time is taken to the streets and to the nights. But not forgetting that there is time for bohemian academic life, but also for applied study.
