Universidad de los Andes was founded on November 16th,1948 by a group of young men under the leadership of Mario Laserna Pinzon. It was the first private higher education institution in Colombia that was non- denominational and independent from traditional political parties, as well as from social or economic power groups. It was precisely due to these characteristics, that Universidad de los Andes was able to propitiate a visionary and avant-garde educational program, at a historical moment in Colombia, in which other private universities were bound by political strife. Within this historical context, according to Francisco Pizano de Brigard, one of the founders and former president of the university, Universidad de los Andes birth did not just spring from the desire to found another university, or from a purely educational interest, but from the intention of building a new country with the purpose of shaping and educating the new generations for a new nation.

International Student Life

Bogota is a city of contrasts, and as such it offers a unique experience to its visitors. Prepare to find a hectic balance between the new and the old; the peaceful and the frantic. Encounter century-old plazas and churches shadowed by towering skyscrapers. Find peaceful treelined bicycle routes cut through by wild-traffic avenues. Bogota is a city with many layers. From internationally recognized universities to regional offices for multinational companies, Bogota is Colombia's capital for official business dealings. It is a city that caters to a population that has been exposed to European and North American influences, which ensures that anything from traditional dishes (Ajiaco) to sushi or fast food restaurants can be found. It's one of the most modern and metropolitan cities of South, Central America and the world. Since its creation, the Los Andes campus has been located in historic downtown Bogota, making it easily accessible to visitors. This location not only houses the majority of the historic landmarks, but is also home to a concentration of universities, local and central government buildings, banks, important private sector organizations and a variety of cultural and tourist activities ranging from libraries, museums, theaters, scientific and literary centers to art galleries. The university campus was constructed by remodeling already existing industrial and religious buildings in the area, by building some new state of the art infrastructure; and by creating an environment that is active, supportive, safe and friendly for its student.
