The campus at UPJ is aesthetically beautiful. The trees and buildings are very welcoming. The small stature of the campus makes it very easy to find all your classes and there is no need to worry about being late to class because of traffic. Also, the small community enables the student to meet a lot of students and you feel like you basically get to know everyone, especially if you are involved on campus or part of Greek life.

The food is horrible! This year it seems to be at an all time low.
Love the class size. Our class size is relatively small for being a branch campus, on average of 20-25 students per teacher. Quiet campus not busy like most main campuses. Experience has been great here!
Greek life isn't a huge thing at our school but it is obviously there. I've heard that it isn't super hard to get into Greek life. They take just about everyone who shows a lot of interest and don't discriminate, which is nice. They also so a lot of volunteer work, which I think is awesome. The Greeks aren't liked by everyone but they do good on our campus and keep things interesting. They show a lot of school spirit and try to make the best out of everything. I am not involved in much Greek life but I still attend events that they have. I think it's important that they are part of the campus life. Many students think green life is stupid and wasted time but I appreciate them.
