The online learning experience was FANTASTIC! Very flexible with incredibly comprehensive tasks and assignments. I always recommended the online courses because they were easier, simpler and more informative given the fact that you have direct contact with the Professors for any questions or inquires. I enjoyed the online alternative during the quarantine time period because I was relaxed and more concentrated when it came to my classes. And again, it was way more accessible for any type of doubts regarding my homework.

I can honestly say that my time at the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico - Ponce was a phenomenal time. I valued the incredible time there, the Professors were usually one hundred percent invested and the classes were pretty great in terms that it was easy to process and study there. I loved the campus experience, it was always pretty normal and serene to be walking around. The grass was ALWAYS green and clean, the cafeteria food was always impeccable and the staff there was phenomenal. Super clean bathrooms. The Art & Humanities Professors were always great to talk to and relate to in terms of one's own art. ( Jaime Rosa and Sylvia Burgos come to mind! )
My experience has been really good. The teachers are really professional and the installations are very nice. I recommend it!
