University of Puerto Rico - Rio Piedras Reviews
It is a very good university, the best in the country, in fact. The recent raise in tuition and cuts to its budget has deteriorated the environment on this wonderfully accessible public university. It is very sad to see it crumble. Regardless, it is excellent. Its best programs are provided in the STEM (natural sciences department), Business Administration, and Architecture. The campus is very big, but beautiful; there are many study areas. This university is highly diverse in all its sense, and its academic offering is quite broad, especially for minor degrees and undergraduate studies.
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 only thing that I would change about the University of Puerto Rico is how the government works with it. Students, professors, and other employees get affected greatly by the poor decision making that the government has been doing for the past couple of decades resulting in many manifestations that don't lead anywhere because the older generations in our country couldn't care less about what happens to our history and education. Maybe if the government stopped beating the university up for their mistakes and corruption then the professors wouldn’t be limited in their teaching methods and students could make the best out of the classes that they paid for.
