University of Puerto Rico - Rio Piedras Reviews

553 reviews
All Categories
In the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus, you can find students from around the globe whose goals are to complete undergraduate, grad-school, and PhDs. The campus offers a calm and friendly scene while promoting cultural and international affairs. The current economic crisis has impacted the students, making them more knowledgeable in politics and economics, while raising new activists who speak up for those who do not have the needed courage. The curriculums are exquisite for those who want to learn more about social studies and humanities while majoring in medicine, communications, entrepreneurship, and others. I highly recommend the public University for those who want to learn about Caribbean studies, natural sciences, and linguistics.

The University of Puerto Rico Rio Piedras Campus is the crown jewel of the public education system in Puerto Rico with its dynamic professors and large selection of courses. It offers degrees in mayor fields. Few improvements would be recommended such as eliminating the few professors that disrespect students and eliminate the possibility of respectful discussion in the classroom. Another factor that could be improved upon are the restroom supplies running out. However, an education in this institution is affordable for most of the students as well as a great investments due to the fact that a degree obtained from this university is regarded as the highest honor. This campus encourages its students to develop as individuals with their own ideas rather than impose a way of thinking. Attending this college will nourish a sense of pride in the student not only for their alma mater but for the nation as well.
The University of Puerto Rico at Rio Piedras provides the best overall college level of education in Puerto Rico with very well prepared professors. On my two years at the College of Natural Sciences, I have been impressed with the level of difficulty of the college and how far the professors take the students. Also, students from the University of Puerto Rico have the opportunity to do research on different parts of the university. Many scientific research projects work in Neuroscience, Genetics, and different types of Chemistry. I have taken classes in the College of General Studies and the College of Humanities, and I can say that professors are committed to teach, but are also flexible in some ways. However, they are flexible in the sense that they consider your other classes but not in a way that it is easy. The life in the campus is safe and good, but it depends where you lodge. Overall, my experience has been rewarding.
