4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very good since the University is located in a very precarious zone of Caracas, therefore, security is very tight. Health services are very good too.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity is not something that can be described as the Unviersity's strong point. There is a homogenous student scene that come from more or less the same economic status, ethnic heritage and the same national origin (all venezuelan, very few international)

2 College Sophomore

Technology: Computers are old but up-to-date with software and other tech requirements. There are many computer labs and there is a great network availability with good internet speed.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The current political, economic and social circumstances that Venezuela is going through make the University scene a very controversial one. Nevertheless, the Universidad Metropolitana provides the tools for problem-solving in the business world, as well as transforming students into entrepreneurial prospects that will help make Venezuelan society more prosperous.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug use is prohibited and frowned-upon but there are many students that consume drugs and alcohol in a very casual way.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Universidad Metropolitana is pretty strict. There is surveillance everywhere (except bathrooms, of course). You still enjoy cultural activities and general student life in campus, good thing is that tend to be very organized and there hardly ever happens anything life threatening and such.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Puerto Rico is small, but beautiful. Universidad Metropolitana has a small campus but various extracurricular student activities are always carried on, allowing the student to meet other students from diverse majors. It's a very active campus. It takes about ten minutes in car to reach the largest mall in the Caribbean. Public transportation is available to reach the campus directly, such as the train and bus. The campus is in between other universities, such as the Universidad Interamericana and the University of Puerto Rico, which can be also reached by public transportion quickly. The university has a gym and a sports complex, where diverse sport disciplines are practiced. Excellent sholarships are available for each program. Research labs are available for science students.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Public transportation is regular, because it focuses on a single area. I live in the rural area. And my transportation is verry difficult.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Caracas's weather is great. Its never too hot nor too cold.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife in Caracas is awesome there are always diverse activities to go to. Nevertheless, the insecurity has limited everyone's nightlife, the fear of been kidnapped or robbed is, unfortunately, in everyone's mind.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking on campus can take time, always get there early to get a good spot.

3 College Senior

Academics: I think that there are many professors really capable to offer an extreme learning experience. But most of the students are not qualified to take advantage of that. Because of that, students that do have the qualifications becomes affected.

3 College Senior

Academics: I found that many students in the accounting major doesn't have basic skills when in higher level courses.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: About the program AHORA is a good idea for adults that want to keeping work with a good future to be. But sometimes the counseling is poor and the student sometimes have problems to developing a career just because of this.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Universidad Metropolitana needs to make more places to study for the students from different program as the program AHORA. They need more support for the students and more respect from the regular program departments. But all around facilities in general are clean and well maintenance.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: NO Drugs ! I haven't seen anyone having to do with drugs. Some smoke cigarrettes but they have to do so outside campus. Many people talk about drinking when going out but as long as you have strong beliefs and know what you are and aren't willing to do, you'll do fine !

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Lots of Activities – Many groups to join and many spots to hang out in.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Lot's of Options – There are lots of options that appeal to different budgets.
I would say I love one of the university cafeterias the other one not so much (too much $ for not so great food). Also, there are some fast food restaurants to choose from, which is good for me.

If you have a car you can get to more fast food options.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Skip the Bars – Nightlife is for people who's not in college. This take a lot of time of their schedule and get to the low point. Is very important for students to have fun too, but sometimes when they want a good career, they have keep an eye on the good stuff and be safe.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Good – In Puerto Rico the rent is not that expensive. But sometimes students need to go to other places a little bit far from the university because of availability or transportation.

1 College Junior

Health & Safety: Health & Safety – The health here is none nut the safety is very accurate

2 College Junior

Local Area: The local atmosphere is regular but theres shopping mals but they are a little bit distant

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: Theres no campus housing in this campus but they offer out of campus housing

2 College Junior

Campus Food: Dining Places in UMET – The dining options are very limited but theres fast food restaurants close by

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: In the Night-School Program – I study in a professional program, where courses are at night. In the access I have had to students in this program, I do not see any drug or alcohol access in college. Some students arrive a bit drunk at times, but they get to the university like that.
