Yes, every Tuesday, starting at 4:00 pm we have Happy Hour at bar near by . You can also check with other students, teachers and the Viva section of La Nación (the local newspaper) for news on night life.
What else can you tell me about the activities? The programs begin in the afternoon no earlier than 3:15 p.m., which allows all students, even those who have afternoon classes, the opportunity to participate. All activities are optional and we occasionally ask that you sign up in advance so that we can estimate how many participants will be attending.
