PUCPR is an OK school if you are one of those students that won't dare to pursue a better education in the United States. Some or the majority of academic programs are so outdated. Overall, there is no college in Puerto Rico that matches at least a community college in the United States. Back to PUCPR, don't expect to be taught morality or Catholicism except inside the theology and philosophy courses (which are required and I loved it). The food at the cafeteria is really good, for a fee. There is daily Mass at noon. And there is no class on Fridays. It's safe because the whole University is gated (except the school of architecture which is separated from the main campus).

It's a good school. Great academics, many programs and great professors. Not much for social life.
