3 College Junior

Party Scene: Transportation is basically null since the bus system isn't the safest after dark. That said, most people who stay on campus have cars so it's pretty easy to go clubbing or hang out at Old San Juan. People don't get carded much unless actually buying drinks, but that's because the legal drinking age in Puerto Rico is 18.

4 College Junior

Academics: The workload is not that complex the first few years but the core classes can get pretty intense, especially during finals season. Registration can be done completely online, though class recommendations should already be done before registration time rolls around, because counselor and adviser offices tend to get pretty full once registration for the next semester starts. (Generally around three or four weeks before finals).

5 College Junior

Academics: I major in Public Relations, which is in the Communications Department. It's far and away the best communication department in the country. The majority of Puerto Rico's news reporters and anchors, journalists, advertisers, artists, radio/film/tv crews and producers, actors, and publicists are Sagrado alumni. They have state-of-the-art television, radio and film equipment, as well as a very experienced, well-connected faculty.

The Department of Natural Sciences is also recognized as one of the best in the country. Their biology, biotech, nursing and Informatics programs are top-rated in Puerto Rico and the States.

3 College Junior

Parking: The permit cost can be steep for some students (around $60 a semester). However, this includes campus security, and outside of campus is not the safest place to park one's car. Therefore, it's recommended that students pay the $60 to ensure their car's safety, and that fills up the parking spots pretty fast. That said, campus is the last stop of the local metro area train so a lot of students leave their car in whatever station is nearest to their house and then take the train to school.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Because Puerto Rico has such a rich history in terms of ethnicity, racial issues are rare on campus. Thought most people are raised Christian, it's a very liberal campus. Sexual orientation discrimination doesn't happen much since one could say that more than half the male population and a good chunk of the female population do not identify as heterosexual.

In terms of economic background, historically, Sagrado has been considered more of a school for kids in the upper-middle to higher classes. Recently, however, because of the increase in students with scholarships, it has a wide variety of students from all sorts of economic backgrounds.

3 College Junior

Technology: They just redid the library and the computers are pretty good. Up-to-date and no major printing issues. The Wi-Fi availability isn't the best during peak class hours but it's certainly gotten better.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports aren't a huge part of campus life unless you're an athlete.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of great, little, unknown spots only the college students who've been there a while know about. They're all locally-owned businesses, if a bit more expensive than on-campus dining. If you aren't feeling too adventurous or just feeling a bit thrifty, there's plenty of fast food spots nearby. The closest thing would be Subway and Burger King, which are walking distance.

4 College Junior

Parking: The parking is small but so is the student population so it's not a problem. I've never had any trouble finding a spot.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There are different sports teams but they're not that popular. People aren't that concerned with those things.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Though the school isn't the best, I have definitely learned a lot and met tons of great people. I cannot complain too much.

4 College Junior

Transportation: There is a small shuttle that goes around the campus picking people up to drop them off at the nearby metro station. It's pretty punctual and functions for 13 hours each day. If you don't live within walking distance and don't want to use the metro, you really need a car.

4 College Junior

Administration: I've never had any problem with my professors. I'm unsure as to what the dorm rules are since I don't live there but the general attitude is very laid back and accepting of the students.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The university is catholic but I don't think most of the students are even religious. In my time there I have not heard much about politics so I'm unsure as to what people in general think. I daresay I've only met one foreign person there and she is an exchange student. There are however many gay students.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There are a few clubs and bars nearby and even two or three theatres. It's close to the biggest mall on the island and to the concert venue. It's also close to the area known as Condado which has many bars, restaurants, some clubs, hotels and the beach. There are two art museums not that far away.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is very small and access to it is closely guarded and monitored. You can't go into the campus without first talking to the entrance guard (unless you have the student seal on your car). There are various guards throughout the university who keep an eye on students and faculty. The student population is very small so the space isn't crowded at all. I have never felt uneasy or threatened.

3 College Junior

Technology: Many people complain about not getting a good enough WiFi signal but I've never had a problem personally. There are a few computer labs but I prefer to use my own. You can print and photocopy at the library for free.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: In Puerto Rico the legal drinking age is 18 so most college students aren't considered underage to consume alcohol. During school hours you don't see anyone drinking. I'm not sure about what goes on in the dorms.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: The communications programs are considered the best in the country.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The library is small and not so well equipped but there are cubicles and desks for study sessions. You can print and photocopy documents with no additional charge. The photography facilities are actually quite good even though they're not very spacious. There is a student centre with a gym, a pool and some basketball courts.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are some good-looking guys and some not so good-looking guys. It's hard to generalise plus there are way more women than men.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The process is actually very simple. You just have to fill out the FAFSA and have it sent to the university. There they will take care of assigning you a certain amount of financial aid. Since they already have the money, you don't have to do anything else other than cover whatever balance is left over.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Basically I don't get much financial aid from the school. It's a hustle to be 2 hours or more waiting a turn to get help from the Financial aid place. They take too long doing things they can do in another time.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The two cafeterias serve warm food. Most of the time is good food but that's basically it. You can go outside and eat.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The problem comes when you are sharing a room. Sometimes people don't get along. The place gets dirty especially the bathrooms. The kitchen is another problem since most girls leave it dirty.
