This document hails from a research which was carried out in the city of Medellin (Colombia) with the participation of the Master of Teaching Education students; in the context of a general look to the "powers languages”; languages that think us.In this sense, the focused questions on the exploration were; how does language media affect university students? How can this language influence inside university’s violence? Fieldwork was conducted in four media means in Medellin, Colombia. No email addresses or websites were part of this investigation, since in this case we wanted to know the impact of the radio, television and press in university education and violence. Conclusions are remarkable: media has imperative verbs that promote violence. In this regard, it is required to replace other expressions for the receiver; since media is privileging the message over the person; even the university has been impacted with this communication; the university formation do not take so much care about media messages. Moreover, as Colombian violence has a deep origin, the media and education cannot actually avoid its participation. There is an ethical engagement between media and the economy, and that relation affects university. To end, university violence comes from many media languages made out of, and for violence.
