5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: no drugs at my school

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: im really happy on this college

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The cafeteria always has the same food every week, all mondays is the same, all tuesdays. So basically they have a menu for the weekdays and each week it repeats itself. Sometimes they might change something do to not having the product, but next week goes back. Although they repeat the menu, they food is always fresh and very delicious. I love it! And its not expensive most you could spend for a plate is $5.65

3 College Junior

Parking: The parking is nice, because once you find a spot is not that far. But the spots fill up quickly.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is any apt that you may find. The University does not provide On or Off-campus housing. You have to find yourself one. Usual cost for an apt near the university goes from $300 to $1,300.

Academics: In culinary management you get the best of both worlds. You get your culinary arts studies, plus you get the education to start your own business. The curriculum is not that hard, it had exactly what is necessary to be the best you can be. The work is not easy, but that helps a lot. Interships and job offers are always there.

4 College Junior

Academics: I came to the Universidad del Este because is the only university with the program I wanted. I like the school, is somewhat hard to connect with the teachers outside the class, but everything other than that is good. I really enjoy my time at the university.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Its near the airport, commercial stores, turist areas and best of all the beach!! So if you feel you need to relax after a hectic day in school the beach is just minutes away from it!

3 College Senior

Athletics: Atletics are pretty big in the school where stuents train almost all
Year for a specific activity called las justas where different colleges around the island gather and compete for the first prize. They are really motivted and dedicated to win and take the trophy home.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The university is pretty safe when you are around campus but the location of the university is around a certain area where things unexpectecly can happen. Overall is ok!

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Universidad del Este because they are one of the two only organizations that offer a biotechnology program. I couldn't have made a better choice, the classes are good and the proffesors are available to answer and clear any doubt and even offer tutoring. Picking classes is allways hard but they have at leat 5 people for 35 students you can ask for ther'e help when needed. They also make fairs at least 1 a week for us to scout possible jobs, grad schools and even pair us with internships. It keeps reminding you of your goals.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm majoring in Biotechnology, it's been a satisfiying experience so far. All of my professors know there way into the industry and have exeptional jobs, also participate as respectable members of they're respective organizations. They all know very important people and are very knowledgable in the field.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are various computer labs around all campus two of these are mostly crowded around mid-term and finals but other than that you can manage to find a computer. If you are a memeber of any group say Rise or the Honors program or any other they have computers for their students to avoid the crowd on those seasons. Every computer lab has printers and fotocopy machines that work pretty well up untill mid terms. In our library they also made a mini louge like space where you have plugs everywhere and the ocasional monitor for presentations and study groups. The university overall has very good wifi and nice spots you can just sit with ur laptop and manage to get good signal. if you lack a computarized device you can allways go to the labs or ask in any office where they have an occupied mini lab and theyll let you use it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Close to home but I think they could hire a bit more employees

1 College Senior

Diversity: There is no diversity whatsoever. Almost everyone is a copy/paste.

3 College Senior

Parking: You HAVE to arrive early if you want a great parking spot, but overall the parking is good because there is almost always a good parking spot close to the university.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Very Calm – It's a very quiet uiversity , but still you meet new people all the time that are on your same goal-achieving mind.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It doesn't have off-campus housing since everyone that study here lives close

3 College Senior

Weather: REALLY HOT! Puerto Rico's weather is usually very tropical and humid, the campus is placed in a well placed part off the highway. Usually when it rains the classes wont get cancelled since it stays off the rains path and doesn't block the exits.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Very Diverse – The school is very involved with exchange programs so there are many international students on campus. There is also a lot of diversity in regards to religion and race. There's a very open minded and accepting mindset among the students.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Very Few Options. There are several apartments available in the area but most of them are very expensive. On a student's budget is almost impossible to rent one and extremely difficult to find one at an affordable price. Most students prefer to drive to campus no matter the distance. Many students travel more than an hour to get to campus everyday.

Parking: parking is always a nightmare because its shared with other places so everyone parks anywhere.

1 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Teachers Were Great but Administration Sucks – the teachers made life bearable at the campus...but administration lacks respect and consideration. Once i was out and looking for a job couldn't find one...the university has not made an effort to become florida state certified for teachers, they change policies all the time without letting students know. Its supposedly a bilingual school..but you dont even come out ESOL certified if you're studying education..Overall its expensive without any services

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Changeable School Policies All the Time – they change policies all the time without students knowing

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: Blackboard Is Always Down – always prob. with internet connection or blackbrd.
