2 College Freshman

Transportation: Basically, if you don't own a car, you will go nowhere for six months. There is a grocery store and a few fast-food places within walking distance. The school will often provide a bus that will drop students off at a shopping center on Saturdays, but it can be inconvenient. There is no public transportation available and bicycles are very difficult to maneuver on the busy roads. There's not very much space available, so the locals never use bicycles.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: One has to be sure to complete an application for financial aid early. There are many hoops to jump through if you are not prepared, and you could be denied admission if you do not have everything in order. There are almost no extra private loans available and occasionally the school will reject private loans if a student has already acquired "sufficient" governmental loans.

Overall Experience: The school is not too difficult to get into. It offers a multicultural experience with the opportunity to visit some gorgeous beaches. Most of the teachers are excellent. The faculty and administration care about their students and work very hard to make sure that we are working happy and are content.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are many places to eat and shop here, but public transportation is virtually void. The only transportation that is available, aside from owning a vehicle, is by calling a taxi. That, however, is very expensive. Many students never leave campus. Others have to carpool with those that own cars. The scenery is wonderful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is literally only a few steps from the school, and is kept in excellent condition. The school is very good about seeing to the general concerns of the students concerning housing. There are a few personal housing conditions that are not handled very well, however. I have seen a few cases where the housing personnel will move a student simply because his/her roommates do not approve of him/her.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The school is brand new and is very well kept. The library is small, but adequate for the program. The school is lacking in a few amenities, but technology is adequate. There are many campus events and activities. There is a gym available to the students that is slightly small and run-down, but is very useful and easily accessible.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: My school is very unique in the sense that it is an English-speaking school in the Caribbean that produces bilingual Optometrists. The weather is always wonderful here. There are students from many parts of the world. There are more than 15 different languages spoken by less than 200 students. While the school produces good doctors, it is dedicated to helping students who are struggling.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's true, I feel like the non-Greeks were indifferent to the Greeks. There are many fraternities and sororities. Those who belonged were proud of their organization and social life, but I don't feel like it was overwhelming or overbearing to the non-Greeks. I am saying this as someone who was not part of a fraternity, but who dated someone that was a member of a sorority.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I feel that there is a general mix of everything. I wouldn't say that there are many highly attractive people, but there are some. There were many different interests and standards. Many students enjoyed casual dating, but I surrounded myself with other married couples. Occasionally I would hear that it was difficult to meet and date outside of the partying and clubbing scene.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There were many exchange programs in our school available for foreign students to come to the U.S. I felt that the majority of foreign students were Hispanic, Asian and Middle Eastern. The campus was also very diverse in religion, sexual orientation, political beliefs and economic background. I feel that, for the most part, students were accepting of others. I never witnessed any discrimination or racism, personally.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There were not many options of places to eat near campus, because the campus was relatively small. However, there were many options at each of those few restaurants. There were a few pizza places that provided decent pizza and were very inexpensive. Still, there were very nice restaurants that provided adequate dining experiences and extensive menu options.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I never had to turn to the housing department for help with housing, so I am basing this rating on what I have heard from other students. The housing department always made opportunities for housing available to all students and updated their lists frequently. I know that they said they were willing to help when needed. I never heard of any poor reports about housing; only that sometimes they weren't able to mediate in roommate conflicts effectively.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I admit, occasionally I would hear of a murder or sexual assault on or near campus. I also heard of date-rape situations many times. However, I feel that security presence was adequate. It seemed that insecure incidents were isolated and almost always involved non students. The school would always send out a text and email to each student when there was a threat in the area and always investigated every situation.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: While there were many parties available, I did not feel that they were overwhelming. I did not attend many of the parties. I heard about them frequently, but I never felt out of place having not attended. Many of the students I interacted with in my major were dedicated to their studies and only partied on the weekends.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The statistics about crime is extremely low.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: They are very observant about who enters the college's premises

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is too expensive

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel more safe at campus that at home. The security is very strict, they are always in patrol and checking who get inside the campus. There's not drinking at all at college because you'll get caught easily..So don't Try IT!!

5 College Senior

Diversity: Here in Inter American University of Puerto Rico, you don't see that marked difference in races, we all blend together like a cake recipe. There's not such thing like rednecks or Latino mafia so that ethnic/racial diversity is not a problem at all. You can feel safe and confident inside the campus. Everyone's friendly and is a really nice place to be.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Well the food doesn't taste that bad at all, but I consider it kind of expensive. A college student could pay easily $9.00 for a meal, I mean come on! we're college students!! Also if you're a veggie kind of person I'll see you starving to death because there's nothing good about it.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: there are a lot of different types of students, both guys and girls, and they are all so different. any kind of person you can imagine, they are there, let be geeks, jocks, cheerleaders, rich kids, humble kids, rockers, etc.

3 College Senior

Academics: the program im studying is quite general. covering most superficial aspects of the IT field, and focuses on the programming and software development areas

College Senior

Greek Life: there aren't any frats or sororities, although the university does promote a lot of social and cultural activities in the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: there's a wide variety of people on campus. they are all accepted no matter their economic situation, religion, major, sexual orientation, etc. everybody is super friendly.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: the parking at college is quite wide, there are more than one parking lot and its cost is $30 per semester
