    Campus Safety

    Security guards and cameras are in effect 24/7.

    Greek Life

    No Greek organizations, as it is a small school on an even smaller campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    Currently, there are many organizations available for the number of students, and it is fairly easy to start a new club.

    Great for these types of students

    It's great for students looking for a new cultural experience, who can speak decent Spanish, and can adapt to the change in lifestyle here in the middle of Puerto Rico.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There are many local indigenous traditions celebrated in the plaza, which include artesans, Taino indians, Tomato festival, and other local traditions.

    What to do for fun

    The town has many indigenous museums and cultural locations to visit.

    Food and Dining

    There are many places within walking distance that offer a variety of food options. From fast food to local Hispanic food, there are an endless variety of options.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms at the Jayuya campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are not as demanding as in other institutions. They are fairly flexible and understanding. However, the nursing program requires that you provide your own transportation to the clinical practice, which is over an hours drive away. The nursing program is also much more demanding than some of the other courses offered.

    Tips for prospective students

    Although there have been quite a few English-speaking only students, this school is mostly for local students that are interested in pursing a college career and in most cases have nowhere else to study. Therefore, most of us are limited to study whatever majors are available. There are some transfer students that wished to study on the island and enjoy the small town community in the mountains. The school is technologically updated with access to computers throughout the campus and free wi-fi.

    In three sentences

    The professors are very helpful and go out of their way to ensure that each student understands the material presented in class. The classroom sizes are small and therefore provide more hands-on clinical practice. The majority of the teachers understand English but unfortunately the curriculum is in Spanish.
