As the Institute is a multiple campus university, most programs and general academic policies are shared among them. However, the Monterrey Campus is significantly more selective in its admissions, requiring a grade average of 80 or 90 in high school (on a 100-point scale) for those willing to transfer or apply as a freshman since 2007. As of January 2008[update], 50% of its freshman class had an average grade of 90 and 25% had an average grade of 95 out of 100 at high school level.

Many pieces of art, including sculptures from a variety of medium, grace the campus. Birds (and deer, too, though we did not see any) mingle and interact with the artwork freely. The peacock pictured below was a surprise as I came across it without notice. It was surprisingly large, about the size of the larger wild turkeys that often cut through my mother's back yard back home.
