“After passing through Puerto Rico, tropical storm Laura caused many Puerto Ricans to face failures with the electrical system. Thousands of people still do not have electricity service and are facing Internet connection problems. We understand the problem that this represents for our students and the Faculty, so we have decided to delay the start of the semester and an academic recess until next Wednesday, ”explained Vélez Arocho in writing.
