Boricua College Reviews
Overall I can say I love my school. I love that it is small and easy to navigate. I love that we have a class called colloquium and an individual time with out facilitator. Allowing students to interact with people in the same field is incredible. You're able to speak upon your concerns and most times than not, they can give you advise because they have been through the same thing. However, I must admit there are a few things that Boricua College lacks. Such as: a gym and a counseling. These two things may seem minor but it isn't. People who live with low income depend on our schools for things we can not afford in our everyday lives. Our mental health is in jeopardy when we aren't offered the basic needs of an average student. I look forward and hope to see a change, if not for me for the future students of Boricua College.
Boricua has a unique history as the first private Latino-Hispanic college on the U.S. mainland, specifically designed to meet the educational needs of Puerto Ricans and other Spanish-speaking people. Located in New York City, with its first Campus in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, a second Campus located in the historic Audubon Terrace of Manhattan’s Upper West Side and a third Campus in the Melrose-South Bronx section of the Bronx, the College typically enrolls over 1,200 full-time students in programs leading to an Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts, and Master of Science degrees.
My first year at Boricua was eye opening, considering the myths that abound concerning colleges and the college experience. Everyday of class there was another new experience to look forward to. Here during the first semester all students must recieve the Perceptual Development 1 course that allows the students to visit the five boroughs and attend events that are offered. Occasionally these events are created inhouse, where possible to help develop critical thinking as well as a better understanding of subjects that are on the schedule, such as in arts,culture,differences in society. It is a great school for people like myself that have not attended a classroom in over 34 years.
