Founded in 1911, the University of Puerto Rico is a public land-grant, sea-grant, space-grant university located in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, in 315 acres of lush greenery and distinctive architecture. Interestingly, the school’s logo features the Degetau Hall, which was one of the few structures standing after the double disaster of an earthquake and a fire hit the university in 1918. The school offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in a wide range of fields such as public services, business, and healthcare, with an emphasis on research. The school has a large student body of more than 10,000 students, and facilities include a library, special needs services, counselling, and specialty programs. The campus also boasts a planetarium, a botanical garden, and a natural history collection. Activities at the school include community projects, job fairs, and the Integral Culture Project. Students at the university enjoy the wide variety of sports that they can participate in, including martial arts. Foodies can also indulge in the food trucks parked near the dorms, or head out to “Las Calles”, downtown.
