The cost of credit is too high, but if you study something in the communications field, it's totally worth it. I'm speaking for the Puertoricans who study here because it's expensive for them. If you come from the US to study here, it will be considered cheap for you. It has a lot of opportunities to learn about the field inside the classroom and outside; you just have to look for them and ask. The food is also slightly expensive, but there are always cheaper options available. Look around places near the university, and you will find better options. The cost is the biggest problem here and the lack of scholarships provided by the institution. I had a lot of economic problems here, but thankfully, I got help from the university. Other than that, the education is good for communication majors and the experience is nice. People are helpful there. If you have any kind of issue (economic, for example); they will do everything they can to solve it. The technology is modern and works well. The newest addition to the university is an innovation center, which is beautifully built like every place in the university. You can easily feel like you're studying in a modern 21st century university with how it looks and all the technology available.

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

The campus is full of security guards. The entrace to the university is strict since it has guards restricting the access. Crimes don't happen, but there are some drug dealers around. Still, you can walk around campus and feel safe because there are guards everywhere. At night, it can feel scarier, but the guards are there for 24 hours.
