University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez Reviews

All Categories
The University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez is a TOP school in anything STEM related. Our students are extremely coveted in multiple industries, companies and much more. Examples of these include NASA, Top 20 Forbes companies and excellent graduate school in multiple fields, both in the island and in continental United States. The Mayagüez campus is also a leader in research and innovation. Besides it's academic prestige, the UPRM or as we call it "El Colegio" is a dominant force in the college sports world, obtaining the National overall Cup for most events won in all sports during the year round LAI ("Interuniversity Athletic League"), where all universities in PR compete, for the last 3 years. Being a student-athlete at the UPRM was a blessing for the full scholarship I received. At the same time, the university is known for its superb nightlife, yet rigorous education. A true Colegial knew how to balance all these aspects, and excel.
