University of Puerto Rico - Arecibo Reviews

Its a barely okay university. The campus is old and barely taken care of, staff is terrible. The whole system is a mess; from registration to anything you would need to do. I can guarantee it will take you nearly a week & they will make your life impossible. I had to drive to campus at 6am for an entire week just to try and meet with an advisor. I was still unable to meet with him despite my efforts and was attended by another advisor who was unhelpful and rude, questioning why I wasn’t taking 15 credits in my second semester when actually I had tested out of two courses. The only thing that makes it worthwhile studying here are the few good professors and the students who are intelligent and dedicated enough to try to better the failing education system of Puerto Rico. If you study here, be prepared to plan everything out and have the conviction to do everything by yourself. The college won’t help you.

The University of Puerto Rico in Arecibo is a pretty small one, but with an excellent environment of students and professors. Many professors encourage the students by showing enthusiasm in their classes and helping students in every aspect. In my experience, I feel motivated by them thanks to their great teaching.
I started to study at UPRA in my freshman year 4 years ago and it was a good experience. Everybody was nice and anyone would help you out if they could. The campus is small so it's better if you need to take classes in different areas of the campus because everything is at a short distance. Most of the professors are outgoing, they are pro-students and easy to talk.
