A degree from UPRM is like getting a degree from a ivy league here in Puerto Rico. The university is highly praised and considered as the best in the island.

Most professor are very knowledgeble and know what they say. Some can be very strict, but it's the strict ones you learn the most from.

University of Puerto Rico is not a your typical University. The UPRM promotes growth, perseverance as it tests your limits. The University may not be as advance as some colleges in the states but I can surely say without out a doubt in my mind that is the closest thing to a State campus than any other university in Puerto Rico. It easily stands out as a Public college and to worth checking out.
