University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez Reviews
This is my first semester at "El Colegio" (that is how the students call it), and so far so good. The campus is huge, the common areas are spacious. The personal of the campus offers workshops, orientations, conferences in different areas. They have great associations and groups that accomplish various things and helps others. The professors are great, they are always willing to help the student. The programs RUM (Recinto Universitario de Mayagüez) offers are a lot, they have business administration, nursing, engineering, animal sciences, biology, and much more. Most of them are offered for bachelor, master or doctorate degree. I am a graduate student and what the university offers me is amazing. In the library we have an area just for us in which we can do all of our research and thesis dissertation.
I love my campus. I love the people, the student associations, and the facilities. I make an effort to contribute to my student community as much as I can by supporting the activities of the University and of student associations. But I wish there was someone or some group to help people like me with that. You see, the thing is, that none of the activities, panels, and support groups are for the population of students that are suffering from mental health conditions. I want to start a mental health support group and organize activities during the Mental Health Month that promote this initiative and give my peers a support system that helps them achieve their goals. I want to normalize this topic in conversations and encourage people to seek support, guidance, and help with their struggles of mental health or even college life.
