    Great for these types of students

    The students in the University of Turabo are hispanic, but there are also people who come from around the world to study there. It is an institution enriched by culture and filled with students who desire the best education at a reasonable price.

    Tips for prospective students

    The ambience is wonderful, very homey. It is easy to maintain your grades if you study hard and party in moderation. Even though the education here may be viewed by some as elemental, the language (if your not familiar with spanish) can complicate the learning process. All in all, this is a very respectable, educational facility with modern technology.

    Bang for the buck

    The price range for each semester is aproximately $3,000. Though cost may vary due to the chosen profession and the years you decide to study. The tuition of this facility is cheaper than that of the U.S. The students that attend this university also have the benefit of studying during the summertime so they can finish college quicker.

    Am enjoying being here

    The university is very quiet, yet exciting at the same time. There is always something to do so you will not get bored easily.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors are excellent and they take time to explain certain areas you might need to improve on. It is rare to recieve a complaint about a certain professor. The good news is if you do not get along with said professor you can either work on your relationship with that teacher or change classes during the established time limit (1 week).

    Food and Dining

    There's a really good cafeteria offering fresh cooked food.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms in the college.

    Academic Rigor

    Yes, some professor challenge you for the best you can do. But you'll have to learn how to push yourself in order to get the maximum out of the college.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't think classes are enough, investigate, look for other sources to help you, and bring them to class; professors love initiatives from students. Ask for help, whenever you feel the need for a second opinion or some extra time from your professor or even the dean, just ask, they love to help. Be aware of the classes, because it is such a small college you can have to know which classes are offered in what semesters, don't be late, they will get full and you'll be without options at the last minute.

    In three sentences

    Low student-teacher ratio, you get to meet and get help from professors, directors and all faculty staff. Beautiful and peaceful surroundings, beautiful gardens. Provide lots of materials, computers, etc. for design students.

    This college is great for any kind of students, I believe anyone would feel comfortable in it.

    Food and Dining

    They have a variety of foods to offer, fresh cooked with afordable prizes and two cafeterias.

    Academic Rigor

    I would say, the profesors are very compromised with their work, they really want to learn and they use anything necessary for you to understand and pass your class, for example, they have the books, they send powerpoints, homeworks to make sure you understand what was given in class.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would have to say for those new coming students to really take advantage of all the facilities that the university offers. This is a very prepared campus with the library, the computer room in the library and it also has free tutoring were all you have to do is get an appointment.
