University of Puerto Rico - Rio Piedras Reviews
Third year student here! lovely experience, lovely people, great minds. Truly a very different experience from other universities in Puerto Rico. Theres no other university that offers the same quality of education at the same price. Beautiful historic site full of diverse people and amazing minds. The biggest difference it's the focus on the students life rather than the students major. You will learn more than just what you need to graduate and it's very much worth the trouble. It's not easy but it's rewarding. The opportunities gained are worth all the stress.
I love the University of Puerto Rico Rio Piedras! They sport teams are great, specially volleyball and soccer teams. However, there are not many food options and the residence halls are not very livable.
At the Río Piedras Campus is the largest of our state university system. It is in the metro area, near amazing historical sites, like Old San Juan. It is an institution over 100 years old, where studying here has made me proud of being here. The tuition is affordable compared to most private institutions. Like most institutions, the class experience vary from mediocre to impressive. Sadly, nothing you do will ever guarantee a positive outcome. Sometimes I had to study things on my own to feel satisfactorily competent in what I enrolled in. Most students have a slothful tendency towards courses they require to take, which doesn't always creates the best environment to excel, unless you see it as a challenge, of course. It is a great University overall.
