My Faculty

In general, i think that my faculty it's really great. It's a nice and big space in wich we have some simple classrooms, a casino, a library and the most important: we can enjoy the beautiful grass and the trees in there.
But i know that it's not perfect. The faculty of arts in this university it's a faculty so poor in many aspects. I think that it's not necessary change things like the classrooms, because they are fine. Maybe it's important invest in new computers for the english laboratory and in this maintenance and do the same with the computers on the library and keep it with new books because for us this is a fundamental tool in our studies. All of this it's refer to structural problems and material for work, but in other terms, i think that it's basic to invest more money in the develop of the capacities and studies of the teachers, in the improve of the courses and the requirements and demands of it, because in so many times the teachers don't make us give 100% of our knowledges or abilities and in this cases i feel that in general, the people get relax.
Another important thing it's about all the administrative matters, because when you need a paper like the regular student or only if you need know about a CFG or something like the people in the secretary never knows nothing!! It's ridiculous in so many cases, because they are usually inefficient.
Whatever, i think that this changes and solves could begin with the organization of the faculty in administrative terms and then, think about improve the other things.

What makes me chilean

When i think about what makes me feel chilean, think about an identity which characterizes for renounces to our roots. I don't know if what i'm trying to sayit's clear, but for explain better the idea, i refer to a common social problem about to recognized us as the chilean people that we are.
We can see in everywherethe typical chilean that escape to the tradicional culture to take refuge into a certain of things and customs that are alien to him.
I think that it's not really bad, but only if we used all thsi things in our benefitfor construct and identity with we feel comfortable and proud, without look down our country and their history. For example, when in a conversation the people talks about the lifestyles in the developed countries as European countries and the people says things of negatives about our country and don't look this example as a model for improve and reach this kind of living.
Well, but not all the things are negative and i want to share my own experience about this. I grow up in a family where only for the national holidays remember that we are chilean and really don't enjoy very much this. In my case, this kind of things makes me open the eyes and get consciousness that i'm really happy and proud about be chileanin things like the beauty of the country, the oportunities that it gives me, in the importance so this is for my own history and for that i'm at this moment and how i feel respect to my own position into the world and it's like how our identity as Chilean people it's represented in our behaviour.
