3 College Freshman

Academics: It depends some professors are amazing but I have had a professor that was not very nice a rarely attended his own class it got so bad I dropped it because it was a waste of time and money.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: old buildings but well kept.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The Area of Santurce is good during the day but does have some bad spots. The locals are nice and Santurce/old san juan/Condado/Miramar are great places with lots to do and great scenery and culture. Transportation is okay but you can wait for the bus for hours so a car is definitely a plus if in this are or anywhere in Puerto Rico as the Transportation systems aren't even in most parts of the island.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Like 95% of the guys and girls are gay so if you are straight and thinking your going to hook up a lot and get lucky it wont happen here. The girls are stuck up and the guys are nice but gossip a lot. The guys are okay but some can be stuck up mostly the athletic upperclassmen. And the girls are very into themselves and there are very few that are actually attractive.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security everywhere all day and night.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: USC is okay it is safe, classes are good, and for the most part people are friendly. But if coming from the U.S it is nothing like College life over there. Puerto Rico is a nice experience and I enjoy the island but disappointed with the college life. Its not the worst but if you are looking for a school with college parties, diversity, mass variety of clubs and organizations, do not come here. And if you need a meal plan also do not come here as it is not offered and makes it difficult especially on a college student budget.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The best thing about studying here is that you can experience Puerto Rican culture, Hispanic environment, and feel like you are on vacation and graduate with a degree that can be used any where in the U.S and even if you are trying to pursue a job in a latin American country this school is listed as one of the best in PR so it is fairly recognized in both the Latino and American work places.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I never really go but when I have gone to some sports games there are barely people there. And the people there don't even pay that much attention. I would say swimming, volleyball, and soccer are the popular sports but when it comes to facilities the gym sucks so bad. It extremely outdated with old ass machines and some are so rusty they don't even move and some are also broken and just sit in the gym. It can work but you have to be really determined in that gym.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is good local places around campus with Puerto Rican cuisine. There is also tons of Subways, and a few food trucks but there is not any place in or near campus that stays open late. The latest would probably be 8:00pm which sucks. There is one place which is Dennys in Condado that is 24 hours but if you don't have a car and have to walk from school its about an hour. If you are really desperate some bars and clubs usually sell some food but not much and not that great tasting either. Price wise the local places are inexpensive.

1 College Freshman

Administration: It's the worst as in they are too strict. No visitors of any kind in the dorms other than the main lobby. Visitors can only stay up to midnight again only the main lobby. After midnight you are not allowed to be outside on campus and security cant let you leave so if you are planning a night out leave campus before it hits 12am.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: You need to be up there ass to get what you need because they are so laid back it will drive you insane.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Okay on campus not a party what so ever it is really boring here, but off campus especially from thrusday to sunday nights, there are great places to go, La Placita in santurce is probably the closest it has a chain of clubs and bars and it is crowded with college students and really cheap drinks which is a plus. Rio piedras is not far either which is a great nightlife too. Also Old San Juan and Condado have clubs,bars, restauraunts and can be really fun but more on the expensive side. Lots of things to do off campus that make up for the non existent nightlife on campus. Also unlike the states, drinking and club age is 18 so none of that 21 and up bs everybody can have a good time! One of the reasons why I came in the first place! lol

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is talked about as if it is so great and when school starts it is a bit disappointing. I like a large campus in the U.S.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Sexual assault isn't a problem inside the campus; the major concerns with the surrounding neighborhoods. Inside the campus we have a very efficient special security measures and a great deal of guards, who's only job is to keep you safe.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: We don't have specific benefits for being in this program or another. They only difference is the professors, if they are willing to help you achieve some extracurricular goals, and the department headquarters, which are usually hard to deal with and coveted by students all the time.

Party Scene: There isn't a party scene at the school, mainly because of it's religious views. Even if one thing doesn't really have to influence the other, the students who arrange the activities have to be very careful not to cross lines. For example, we aren't allowed to tittle a party "Halloween Party" we have to call it "Masks' Party".

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school has a very large sum of opportunities and benefits for the athlete, in and out of the facilities. That being said, it isn't the first choice for the development of a sports directed career considering that the school specifies in communications.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The best way to get financial aid is to have really good grades and press the issue with the Asistencia Integrada (Financial Aid) office. Send emails and work your way through the system.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting into the Humanities Department, majoring in psychology, was not difficult. As long as you have a great GPA and the time to submit the paperwork in time, you might not have any issues achieving your goal. I feel like the criteria should be more defined and the election more selective. My most valuable tip would be to administrate an interview or an essay evaluation, considering the skills needed to take on professions from this department, and any other department for that matter.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I appreciate the effort put in by everyone at my department, but it is difficult to learn sometimes. Some professors are too busy trying to sound 'too complicated to understand' and making their course sound more difficult than it actually turns out be during the first month (August-September) and push in all the material in October and November. I enjoy my classes but I would like for them to be delivered with better execution.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus strictness is only applied if you get caught, but it isn't pursued. The administration doesn't seek out the violations but they act upon them if brought to their attention. They have a very opened mind and are inclined to negotiate forgiveness and the severity of the punishment.

College Junior

Scholarships: I have a particular discount because a family member.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home. A lot of students do since it's a commuter college.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's warm, most of it is cooked fresh. Lots of typical Caribbean food. Not a totally varied menu considering the amount of chicken used. Chicken everything. But the prices are fair and they serve plenty.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I was back in high school, I would definitely pick this school again. It has a particular atmosphere that is very laidback and welcoming, which I appreciated very much when starting school. College can be incredibly overwhelming so it was nice to be in a small campus where everyone knows each other.
