Inter American University of Puerto Rico Reviews

During these past few months of experiencing an online course for the first time, I've realized how much I underrated face-to-face teaching. And how stale being in a virtual class can be. Sure, online classes have their benefits. For example, I no longer have to wake up early every day of the week and teachers now have fewer excuses to be arriving late. But the environments are wildly different. It may just be me, but being in a classroom and having the presence of a teacher right before you is just as important in the learning process as the way the lesson is explained and how creative the teacher goes about it. Both of those variables let out a sort of pressure that forces you to pay attention and think critically. Something that I find quite difficult to muster in my own home. The one place where I feel freer than anywhere else and am able to relax. It's simply not the best place for one so distracted such as I am to study, and I find myself genuinely missing being face-to-face.

Now within the final weeks of finishing my first academic year in a university, I would say that the experience wasn't as scary as I believed it would be. I was expecting all the teachers to be more lenient and unsympathetic with students. I also that we'd go through lessons at such a quick pace, that I wouldn't be able to keep up. But it's in fact been a pretty fine experience. Though that may also just be that I applied along with a high school friend of mine, which has made me feel much more confident and motivated. I also enjoy the freedom we have to choose our own schedule and roam around the outside of campus before class. However, I do find that when it comes to academics, the Inter American University is a bit too easy on their students. And as much as I'm not a fan of being overworked, I feel like I should be challenged more as a Biology major. All of my teachers have been fine, but simply the way we go about the lessons throughout the trimester is too lax.
I like this University, because it makes me feel secure and at home. There have been some incidents and the security have handled them perfectly. They do practice emergency drills for fire and they act very strictly with it. The classrooms and professors are okay, there are some that must be let go, because they are not in the state for teaching. The administration sometimes are kind of harsh with students and I have experienced problems that they don't know how to fix or what to do. They must fix and change the people that work there with some new faces.
