In 1898 Colegio Adventista del Plata was opening its eyes to a lifetime of excellence and service. Guided by Divine Providence, Adventist pioneers worked hard to establish a small school to provide Christian education and spread the gospel to this vast continent. Over time, the college became a university and today it is a conservative school where many students from all over the world come to enjoy a unique experience.
UAP seeks to meet the need of every student in spiritual, academic, physical and social aspects. The institution’s motto is 'Gateway to Excellence and Service.' The university includes primary, secondary and university students with a total of 2800 students, 800 of which are living in the residence halls. This is a very cosmopolitan campus seeing as how there are students from 40 different countries around the world. There are four distinct schools of study and over thirty different specialized majors within them.
Classroom and residence hall facilities are modern in design and in a good state of repair. Generally two or three students to a room is the norm in dormitories, with shower and restroom facilities located on each floor. Rooms are spacious though closet capacity is limited. Pillows, blankets and bed linens are provided and there is a laundry on campus where students can take their clothes to be washed.
The UAP now has a wireless network for the use of the internet. Because of this, students are advised to bring their computers so that they can enjoy this service 24 hours a day anywhere on campus.
GOOD NEWS: Every student coming to the UAP, Argentina, and stay through the whole year will be awarded a gift of USD 300 for personal travel during the holidays.
