About Puerto Rico Colleges

The island known as Puerto Rico is officially known as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and is an unincorporated territory of the United States, meaning that the area enjoys its own sovereign government. The country's name, in Spanish, means rich port, and the area's economy stays true to this nation as the average GDP (gross domestic product) per capita is $19,600. The territory is located in the Caribbean Sea, and boasts a population of nearly four million people.

The territory of Puerto Rico was discovered by Europeans with the arrival of Columbus during his second voyage in 1493. Soon, the Spanish had conquered and colonized the island, and their rule lasted until Puerto Rico declared its independence in 1897. During the Spanish-American War, the United States gained control of the territory, and it became a protectorate of the United States. The area boasts beautiful rainforests and national landmarks. The economy is fueled by manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, technology, and the tourism industries. The education system is extensive, as there nearly 1600 public schools on the island, and a large number of universities as well as four medicine and law schools.
