University of Puerto Rico - Ponce Reviews
In my University there's plenty of sports and extracurricular activities, but when it comes to facilities; I like a student expect more. This year, the Drama Club doesn't have a theater director. The Atletism Team doesn't have a field in the campus. Although, not everything is negative, they are well coordinate with the competitions schedules and made possible to send us that information.
Ponce is an important historic and cultural city of Puerto Rico. UPR-Ponce campus is filled with positive energy faculty members, undergraduate students and employees. This campus is small size in comparison with others, but the education is excellent with the best professors and mentors that are willing to help you achieve every goal that you think about. I graduated from an Associate Degree in year 2012, and in year 2016 I will graduate from a Bachelor Degree in Biology- Concentration Biomedical sciences with an overall G.P.A. of 3.5 but enriched with unique extracurricular activities, community service, summer internships, social experiments, symposiums, investigations and workshops/conferences offered to the community. I think all departments have a coordinated program and curriculum that enables the student to fulfill each academic, professional and personal goal each semester. In February, 2014 a group of volunteer students started to cultivate the seed of knowledge and hunger for progress. In a civic manner, they established the urban garden called Huerto Atabey in honor to a local Indian "goddess" cultural tradition, and under the non-profit student organization Coalición Estudiantil Pro - Agricultura (CEPA). CEPA aims to educate and create consciousness to the whole community about the importance of achieving an optimum level of food security in Puerto Rico and reduce dependence of imported food or aid. These students offers a series of conferences and workshops to local schools, universities, urbanizations, low - income communities and stratified minority students because they believe that the power comes from the educated communities from every corner and circumstances. In addition to all this facts mentioned earlier, this campus has the UPR-R.I.S.E. Program for Biomedical/Biotechnology/Chemistry students aiming for graduated studies or PhD in related sciences topics. There are tutoring programs during each semester to help students.
Be in the UPR of Ponce has been a great experience, since it has made me grow as a person and as a professional in the future. When you enter the UPR I felt lost and alone, but soon made me feel at home, and I began to make many friends. Many of the professors are excellent, and the education that offers even better. Here is promoted much critical thinking, the sense of responsibility, and autonomy. In this university i learned to become interested in the problems of my country and the world. I have matured thanks to her, and I know that I will continue to do so, i have grown both in responsibility, independence, solidarity, empathy, pride, and learning. I don't regret having chosen this university as my second home.
