Arboretum and the Excellence Center. In each one of them the participants had to pass several tests, designed by the students of each academic unit. The competitors were challenged in geography and history, law, space relations, body plastering, a dental impression and the demonstration of physical, intellectual and cognitivas abilities.
The Admissions Department and the Stundents Associations organized the rally so that the new students knew the campus and many of the services that are available. In addition to the digital camera, donated by Canella, were prizes like sweatshirts, jackets, caps and t-shirts from the UFM.
