Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico - Ponce Reviews

I started my freshman year there, but later had to transfer to another university. Overall, it was a good experience. Most of the professors I took wanted students to excel in their classes. The difficulty of the material ranged from difficult (core classes) to easy (general education), though it also depended on the professor giving the class. The classes were small so I had to be fast when registration online opened, to get the class I wanted/needed. I always made like 3 alt schedules, just in case I missed some classes.

Security was very good, they had guards near the entrances/exits, and you have to show your ID for them to let you on campus. The campus was very beautiful and open, lots of seating outside (benches and tables), and the library in the law building is super quiet.

When it rained, the university was basically flooded (parking, some classrooms, bathrooms). Local area is pretty good. I liked going to Melao (coffee shop) and a natural ice cream shop in the plaza.

it is a good college, i will be better if faculty wont be too conservative. Also, the university needs to invest more on what really matter like dorms and the program of fine arts and photography- digital desing. Other thing that will be better is that the cafeteria will be a little more cheaper and that have a air conditioning that actually works. Overall, the campus is really good and the education its almost excellent and the campus is awesome, very relaxing for studying and reading. It will be nice that the university make more activities in order to socialize a meet people with the same taste of music, art, classes, material etc. But in the other ares, the university is very good for my opinion.
PUCPR is an OK school if you are one of those students that won't dare to pursue a better education in the United States. Some or the majority of academic programs are so outdated. Overall, there is no college in Puerto Rico that matches at least a community college in the United States. Back to PUCPR, don't expect to be taught morality or Catholicism except inside the theology and philosophy courses (which are required and I loved it). The food at the cafeteria is really good, for a fee. There is daily Mass at noon. And there is no class on Fridays. It's safe because the whole University is gated (except the school of architecture which is separated from the main campus).
