    Adventist students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Welcome Prepa is the welcoming of the freshman. Olimpiadas, sport competitions for all of the department.

    Bang for the buck

    Compared to USA universities is very cheap.

    What to do for fun

    They have a pool, but it is not open everyday. They have many clubs involved with the church and activities the university provides.

    Food and Dining

    Vegetarian food is served. More or less the same menu everyday.

    Dorm Life

    Old facilities, except on the new dorm. Strict rules govern and not much privacy and order.

    Academic Rigor

    They have great programs like nursing and theology, but they fall short on the others. There are not many variety of majors to choose from. Since it's a little university many courses aren't offered in the semester you need them.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students, my advice is to be completely aware of the choices you have outside of this university. Financially it could be a burden, because of the cost of the credits and there are not many options.

    In three sentences

    The Universidad Adventista de las Antillas is an average rate university academically, but composed of great people who always service you with a smile. It has a very good and competitive nursing program. You will enjoy a pacific, spiritual environment, not quite like other universities.

    The food is quite good. It is a 100% vegetarian cafe. Reason for that its religious background.

    Classes are at an average difficulty but professor's are 100% willing to help or tutor.

    What to do for fun

    Go hiking in the jungle or go with a group of friends to the beach. There are a lot of places to hang out in town.

    Food and Dining

    There is not much variety to choose from and not always very healthy.

    Dorm Life

    Very small dorms and not all new.

    Academic Rigor

    Best school for nursing in Puerto Rico. Nurses from UAA are looked at very positively.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are coming from the states, be prepared to wait. There are long registration lines and it takes literally the whole work day plus another day! Always bring an umbrella to school because showers come out of no where. Try not to cram all your assignments and studying until the last minute because everything is subject to change.

    In three sentences

    UAA is a christian-oriented school that strives to give their students a well-rounded college experience. The administration is a bit unorganized, but compared to the other schools in Puerto Rico, it is considered the best. The professors quickly learn your names and really invest in your education.

    Campus Safety

    Campus is very safe because we are away from the city located on a mountain. There is security but they're hard to find.

    Greek Life

    There is are organizations to help you with your academics. Also there is a student council which plans activities and take any concerns the students have and take it up to the board.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are medical cadets, master guides, choir, band. You can sign up to do missionary work in a different country. You can sign up to help with church service. Word on the street, is a spiritual reflection. Any topic that is going on with the youth's life is discussed and spirituality is applied to it.

    Great for these types of students

    Here you can study biology, education. respiratory therapist, business, psycology, computer technology and theology and nursing, health science and history.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every Thursday night, students gather in front of the main building to have a devotional.

    Bang for the buck

    If you need items to buy, the university takes the students to the mall every Thursday night and Friday but only the first five males and females on the list can go. The university is a religious institution so there is church service Monday night, Wednesday night, Friday night and Saturday morning. If you don't speak Spanish there is no need to worry because the church has two services in the morning. The first is English. The WiFi signal and sometimes signal on your phone is weak depending where you are.

    What to do for fun

    In the evening students either go to the gym to play basketball or to the soccer field . Some will go to the pool. Also the institution plans out activites as going camping or a social.

    Food and Dining

    You're going to have to get use to eating the same food everyday. Each day they serve rice, veggie meat and some type of vegetable. If you don't want to eat rice, you can make your own sandwich. This institution is an Adventist facility so meat is not allowed on campus. Sometimes the foods taste good sometimes is a little salty.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms aren't something out of this world. There just here to live. Nothing can be put up on the wall. Some rooms have air conditioning while others don't. You can get from 4-5 roommates. The rooms don't have their own bathroom. there is a general bathroom about eight showers, toilets. To wash you have to pay $1.75. Curfew is 10:30 except for Thursdays and Saturdays which is at 11:00pm. Each evening there is a devotional.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes here are a little easier than in the states but their are times you need to really focus on them. Philosophy is one of the difficult classes. The class may be easy but the professor is not. Depending on the professor you can get a lot of homework or reading to do.

    Tips for prospective students

    Even though the professors are very nice and have more of a relationship with the students, they are strict with their courses. They expect everyone to get things done. If you're not responsible you need to start being responsible and organized. The college has a lot of activities for the students to help them out with their social life, but make sure you are taking care of your academics first. When your going to go out to an event, analyze if it is going to affect your study time for the quiz on the next day. Manage your time well.

    In three sentences

    The Universidad Adventista is a friendly environment where you have more relationship with the professors. The classes are in Spanish but the professors know English and the books are usually in English. They have the best nursing program in the island.

    Campus Safety

    The campus safety is very good, nothing really to feel unsafe about.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs here. Nursing, theology, education, and for much more departments . There is many activities here. There is locations to play every sport possible. Tennis,swimming, soccer, basketball, and much more. They also have many activities almost every weekend. To go to really important, beautiful places in Puerto Rico.

    Great for these types of students

    It is great for vegetarians, and adventist religious. Good for friendly people too. And since the nursing program is proven to be one of the best in all Puerto Rico, it is also great for nursing pursuing students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The campus is located just slightly a bit far from some grocery stores. It is located like pretty much in the middle of nowhere. It is surrounded by many trees(like a jungle).

    What to do for fun

    For fun, I play tennis, swim in the nice pool they have here, or just go put with the many friends I have made here.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not the best, speaking of the flavor and the variety, but its is very healthy so that is good, I think.

    Dorm Life

    I love living in the new girls dorm they have here, it is very comfortable and very a very nice, clean place. It is a bit far from most classes and the other two dorms(guys and old girl dorm) and the cafeteria too.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic area here is this university is very good. Not the hardest but very good, the teachers are very good teachers, and are very helpful. The material/classes, especially for nursing, is proven to be one of the best here is Puerto Rico.

    Tips for prospective students

    I think the advice i would give it that maybe if you care a whole lot about the food, then maybe you should learn a few things to cook, because well here the cafeteria doesn't provide delicious food and doesn't really vary. The food is all vegetarian since its an Adventist school.

    In three sentences

    The Universidad Adventista de las Antillas is a special school. It had many good things, like: the environment, the teachers, the schooling(specially for nursing), the people(everyone's very friendly), and much more. I rate the school to be a good school, because it has very good things there's not much negative things to say about it.
