I love this university, it offers many opportunity to students of all major, mainly STEM major. It has many talented athletes and the only marching band of all UPR universities. It's filled with people that have ambition, and are hungry for challenges, and a great education. I recommend this university! Go BULLDOGS!

I love studying here. They have an amazing education and employment opportunities for such low-cost tuition. As an accounting student, 3 of the 4 Big Four companies recruit students for internships and full-time jobs, which is important for me. The business and engineering school at UPRM is excelent and competitive. Hundreds of big companies come to recruit the best students. There are approximately 12,000 students and everyone treats each other nicely. Professors are usually nice as well. Many activities are done throughout campus and people are very smart. I do not regret completing my major here. The only downfall is that students do not graduate in four years because of the high amount of credits that each program has.
Great university but with the recent troubling times it has been rough to receive quality education. I'm in my second year and picking classes has been hell for me.the administration is average. The classes are great if you pick the right professors, lots of academical activities and investigations! 6/10
