What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
You will find challenges, and as a student it is your task to make it work. I have had horrible professors (in terms of rigor) and good ones (not so rigorous) and I have made it work. It is not meant to be easy, but to take you to higher academic standards.
Paola from Puerto Rico
The academic rigor depends on the faculty you belong. In my case, I belong to the Faculty of Architecture and based on the amount of work that it's given to the students I can say that the rigor is very high.

It all depends on the subject. All college professors expect high quality work of the students.
Gustavo from Gurabo, PR
I believe it is very demanding, but it will help you expand your knowledge and your passion for it every time. Everyone should take advantage of this, the professors will push you to your limits, and that will help you find new limits and grow, and expand your mind to new horizons that not even you knew. It is very satisfactory when you look back and see the immense progress you have achieved and at the same time, you will want more and more each time.
