The Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico is one of the premier educational institutions in Puerto Rico. They are currently undergoing changes in their infrastructure, one of which is the new Murga Theater. This theater opened within the year and offers many opportunities for concerts, plays, dramas and special conferences. The theater is the most modern in Puerto Rico and boasts all the newest technology. Also the new Law Library has one of the most comprehensive resources in the Caribbean. The grounds are very tropical and worth a stroll.

Academic Excellence! Well located in front of a Museum; with one of the best law schools. Tough in science and MBA. Best Education Faculty and the school is by the book!

The Catholic University of Puerto Rico is a private university founded by the Bishop of the Diocese of San Juan back in 1948. They offer from Bachellors Degress up to Juris Doctor and MD degrees. They are just in front of the Museum of Art of Ponce, and is not a coincidence since Dr. Luis A. Ferre, exgovernor of Puerto Rico, businessmen and filantropist, donated the land in front of the Museum to the University. It has nice gardens and from outside looks pretty nice. The reason that I gave them an average rating is because for turists this only have limited things to do, understanding that this is an University operating.

Currently studying here. Perfect choice for people who want to study law or architecture (they have a new building). The museum is in front of the university and plaza las delicias is a couple of minutes away. This university gives you different scholarship options including choir, band(new), athletics, cheerleading, dancing and more. It's a flat area so no need to go climbing anywhere (besides the stairls) like other universities. It has separated dorms for females and males and there's never been an issue with transgender students (no pets allowed in dorms). It has a great area for athletes including a track, swimming pool, 3 or 4 tennis courts, 2 basketball courts, an area for soccer practice. The university is accredited. Great for science students also. Great quality.

Other Pros I didn't mention:
Frats and Sororities
Giant library
Much help for people with disabilities (physical and mental)
Affordable
Great Student Council (they respond quickly)
LGBT friendly (by friendly I mean they will treat you like any other student)
Internships (new ones appear every month)
