During "dias de los muertos" students from several schools meet in the court to show their representation of the afterworld in the traditional Mexican view
It's huge though. The most rewarding wiew of mural tilings on main buildings. Not good places to eat inside but in the neighboorhood is plenty of nice lunch parlors.
My husband and I spent a day on the university campus recently, and loved it. There is a lot to see: the Olympic Stadium, built for the 1968 Olympics (w/Diego Rivera murals), the murals covering the university library walls, the Siquieros mural on the Rectory building, and all of the Centro Cultural Universitario, which consists of the Sala Nezahualcoatl, one...
