What I loved about the RUM is that there was a balance between academics and social activities. If you want to study in a quality school, where students focus on their studies, but live near the beach, and have somewhere fun to go every Thursday(the day everyone goes out), this is the place for you. UPRM is the best university in all of Puerto Rico for a reason. And trust me, we are very proud of it, and so will you. Antes, ahora, y siempre... Colegio
I love the campus, it has many green areas full of trees. My clases are great, the professor that I have had the oportunity to work with are amazing. However I not a party girl myself and the college is know to be a party campus so I do not enjoy the constatnt partying that goes around but many people do enjoy that aspect of the campus.
Is the best univeity to study
Best college in the country. great level of education, great professors. Learning is the way to progress in life. Interest is needed in order to learn, someone who do not want to learn can not be teached. Who teached you and how they do it can have a big impact in the learning process, having a good mentor is an advantage. Interaction during the process will make things easier than just sitting down and listening or watch someone explaining. If there is personal communication between mentor and student learning becomes a closer and easier habit, plus better confidence is created. Comfort comes with confidence and with confidence comes creativity which means the will to learn about something increases.

Many multinacional companies recluting the students in this campus for example Nasa, Procter & Gamble, Verizon, Job Goverment Federal in others. The professors are very competitive. The different acredition that have the different school.
I brag to my friends about the not anybody can attend to my school. You must have good grades to be in and when you're in you have to work hard and to do your 100% to have good grades. Also I told them that if you graduate from my school, there's a big possibility that you could find job easily.
They are young people with high expectations and goal-oriented.
Intelligent, competitive ones.
I wish I had known all the available programs to help the student on their classes. Also all the available coop and internship programs.
This is not a college for slackers. If you do not have good studing habits it's not for you. If you want to study social science there are other alternatives that might be better for you.
I describe my school as: tough, challenging, a world with a lot of opportunities to offer and worth studying there.
What I consider the best thing in my school is the education itself because the simle fact that we do so many reasearch projects and investigations, and the school asks so much of you that it prepares you for everything that life has in stored, profesionally and emotionally.The education is so good that companies and agencys come to recruit students and offer them really good job offers to practice what we've learned.
Due to the tropical climate of the island in both semesters rains a lot. This is a problem when moving between classes and so on.
the harder studies and clases and the people with some kind of ego
The stereotype depends on what sector of the community is asked. Because of the overwhelming media coverage of most student strikes, there are people who believe we all want to live off our Pell Grants and protest all day. This isn't true. Most students are serious and driven, but we know when to have fun.
The stereotype also depends on your Major. Students in the Humanities are thought of as free spirited, artsy stoners, while Biology students are often accused of being nerds. None of these stereotypes are exactly fitting because one of the great things about UPR is that you can find all kinds of people from a vast array of backgrounds in the classroom.
The academic quality. Students graduate well prepared.
The academics are top class. Computer engineering professors are some of the best in the ECE department (My department!). As a student you have to study a lot but the teachers prepare us very well. One has to work hard but it pays off!
Well we are the best engineering university in Puerto Rico. We are a very proud bunch! We have a saying in here, it goes : "Antes, ahora y siempre, Colegio!". People are always impress when you say you are from El Colegio.
My school is best known for be the best school of engineer in the caribbean. Most of students came from different place like Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela to attend to my university to study engineer. The school is also one of the top 30 schools of engineer in the United States.
The most popular activities are athletics and the marching Band. There are a great variety of groups and associations that depend on the faculties and they have prestige.
Weekends are tranquil, especially because most students commute when they have class (they don't live on-campus). However, there are often cultural activities and the libraries are always open. Nightlife is average, most students go out on Thursday nights.
It was close to home, and they had the most complete Academic offering in the island, especially in the Humanities.
