Boricua College Reviews
I loved attending here. The school actually cares about students' majors while focusing on the importance of cognitive growth. I attended 3 other colleges prior, none provided the interpersonal education and services that Boricua College did. This was the only school I was able to learn without feeling like I'm just another income to an establishment. I recommend this school to those who have a hard time focusing, the classes are small. I also recommend it to those with a busy schedule, the school and teachers are flexible and understanding. A lot of writing is necessary to pass the semesters but you'll for sure learn how to write a proper essay of any size.
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.
