San Salvador, El Salvador -- Ten years of the Supplementary Academic Program
The “Supplementary Academic Program” organized by the Sherpas Club in San Salvador is celebrating its tenth anniversary. The series of conferences and cultural visits seeks to acquaint university students with the principal cultural currents in the country. The program has a multidisciplinary character. In these past ten years two thousand students from the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Law, Business, Communications and Engineering have taken part. Recent cultural activities have included visits to “Joyas de Ceren” (an archaeological site containing the remains of an indigenous home with its cooking utensils that was buried by volcanic ash), the pyramids of San Andres, the cathedral, and the National Theater of San Salvador.
