Review Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico - Ponce
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 Some or the majority of academic programs are so outdated.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).
What I like about the University is that most of the professors are interested in the students development outside of the classroom. A thing I would change about the University is the special treatment the institution have with the professors who have seniority. This, in terms that these professors can do whatever they want, when they want without any consequences.
My country's universities don't offer many courses or specialized programs in the architectural field. Therefore my best choice is the school I'm enrolled in at the moment because of its classes and professors. But even if I had other choices I would like to think that I would still choose it, given that I've had great experiences, both academically and socially. I've met many amazing students and professors, learning from them and partaking in debates and conversations that have helped expand my soon-to-be career. The courses associated with my field that I've taken so far have been incredibly interesting, although the other basic classes don't spark my interest much. At our school we have a wide range of power tools, those that are highly sophisticated like our laser cutter down to the more simple ones like a round saw, and multiple programs that allow us to create without limitations. We also have professor who push us to do our best and help guide us through our projects when we need find ourselves a bit lost. All in all it's a great school and I hope to graduate from it.
