    Great for these types of students

    Students that are willing to work hard and mainly biology students who don't know we will be spending a lot in med school so don't want to spend that much yet! And yes Harvard Medical school does often come to the UPR looking for future med school students.

    What to do for fun

    We enjoy lots of sport events and different plays whom I really enjoy.

    Food and Dining

    I only eat half of my meal at the school but we don't have meal plans because the students don't have dorms inside the university .

    Dorm Life

    I travel everyday to and from school.sadly!

    Academic Rigor

    I was a straight A student in high school and never studied and the president of my class, plus I was part of two competitive dance team well I was in high school and this college has taught me that education goes first and I dedicate a lot of my time to studying so I would have to stay academically speaking yes you will find some difficulty.

    Tips for prospective students

    For future student I suggest they take the time and start the advanced program ahead of time and do some basic class during summer.it will help in the class placements during the semester.

    The university is great, we have a beautiful campus and you tend to meet nice people while u are here but I must say that the University doesn't help their students out as much as they should. Finding the correctly classes can feel like troy all over again every semester. I must say I have enjoyed my time and I have learned so much.

    keep in perspective if you want a small college, cause UPR at Cayey is that kind of University. if you want to study a BA in Psychology this university is a very good option.

    Campus Safety

    Very safe. Multiple security guards around the entire campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are several different clubs that host get-togethers and club outings

    Bang for the buck

    Very economical without compromising education.

    What to do for fun

    The University has a movie night on Wednesdays.

    Food and Dining

    The University has a cafeteria that is economically priced. There are also several off campus restaurants (Burger King, McDonald's, etc.) located within walking distance, as well as others that are only minutes away by car.

    Dorm Life

    As far as I know, all dorms or apartments are located off campus and are owned by private individuals renting to students. The type of experience you have varies from apartment to apartment depending on the contracts with the landlords. There is a large amount of apartments for rent right across the street from the University, but you may also find some available farther away.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are vary professional and encourage studying. They are very willing to discuss any questions about the material, and generally give an adequate amount of time to study for exams.

    Tips for prospective students

    All the classes (except English) are given in Spanish.

    In three sentences

    Wonderful university. The campus is beautiful with lots of landscaping, sculptures, fountains, benches and tables. The professors are great and the class sizes are generally small, although some classes do contain multiple sections.
