3 Students rated Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez

Christian - 02/25/2018

It's an excellent place to study, professors are passionate, interested in their students success, and are compromised with it. The same can be said about most of their personal, they will treat you with care, confidence, and comprehension. Also, all the services you may need, like computers, printers and books, are provided by the insitution. However, the problem could be, that its cost is very expensive.

Gracemarie - 07/10/2017

It is a great university with fascinating professors, who always help their students. There are no nearby food chains, we only have the cafeteria, which is great but a little pricey. The library is helpful and always accessible, the workers are very nice. The campus is quite small, but they have added some facilities that make the university more entertaining and practical. The students are very calm and social, I have not seen any fights occur ever since I have been studying. I love it, but I wish we had more attention from our main campus in Ponce, sometimes I feel they use most of the money on their campus and forget about the campus and the students in the other campuses. Overall, great.
