The vice rector highlighted the importance of graduating by writing a thesis because it is a means of discovering outstanding students' talent. Eric Magar added that writing a thesis is a very important cycle, which culminates a key learning period of a person's academic life.
Mauricio Calcaneo, one of the Law prize-winners, shared a few words regarding his experience writing his thesis: "It was a period of a lot of sacrifices, because I practically did not spend time with my wife and new born son, but it was worth it and this award confirms it."
