The University of Miami is inclusive toward every person that steps foot on campus. The faculty and staff and even the students are always reaching out letting you know you can count on them for extra help or assistance. The Coral Gables (main campus) is very clean and beautiful, and though there are many students enrolled, there are many familiar faces and everyone treats each other with love and respect, so you never feel out of place. It is a great place to go to school because you not only grow academically, but also as a person, and you create bonds that I hope will last a lifetime.
I love the U. It is a diverse campus filled with bright, dedicated, and passionate individuals. There's always a lot of events and activities happening on campus, including, but not limited to: community service events, campus bonding activities, carnivals, concerts, free food events, movies, comedians, and arts and crafts! There's always something to do both on and off campus; living so close to Miami is wonderful and there is plenty to do, see, and explore. The campus itself is beautiful, the classes are interesting, the students are friendly, and the professors are supportive. I've had an amazing time at the U and have made wonderful friends and memories that will last a lifetime.
The University of Miami is a great diverse school. The atmosphere is good and there is always something happening on campus from sports to events being held by several student groups. The campus is beautiful, especially the view of the lake from the Shalala Student Center. In addition, you have the opportunity to become friends with many international and out-of-state students while meeting several Florida students. Not only that, the professors want you to succeed and usually respond quickly to any questions you may have. I enjoyed my time there.
University of Miami is located in the surburb of Coral Gables. It is very safe. The University has it's own police force. So you enter a nice campus, Palm trees, plenty of space, the school has a lake/pond, swimming pool, plenty of places to eat on campus and nice outdoor tables. Students have their laptops out and are studying!

The first piece of advise I would give myself is to be as outgoing as possible. Going to a college where I didn't know anyone was a bit of a tough transition at first. Friends are what make college the amazing experience that it should be. They help you through the hard times and create the good times with you. Without those relationships college would be almost impossible to handle.
The other thing that I would tell myself is to always stay focused on the reason that I'm in college. It's so easy to lose sight of the fact that I'm there to get an education and learn as much as I can to help me become successful. School should come first most of the time. Otherwise I'm paying for a very expensive party. I would tell myself to not look around at other people that are doing as little work as possible to get by but to always remember that that's not the kind of person I want to be. I want to go above and beyond what I'm asked of so that I can make the most out of college!
They are amazing.
For me, the worst thing about my school is that it's so far from my home. This makes it hard because I'm away from my family and friends for the majority of the year. It was hard to start over making all new friends. But I have made new friends, and overall, it's been worth it. The other thing that's hard is the cost. I have a full-tuition scholarship, but I still have to take out student loans, and I'm worried about the amount of debt I'll be in when I graduate.
I wish I had known that I was going to end up changing majors anyway. Then I would've gone to a school based on academics, rather than based on music.
Our school is best know for its football team. While they don't always win they do have a history of being an amazing team. The students have a lot of school spirit and love attending games. And everyone has heard of the "U" when it comes to sports!
University of Miami is an excellent school with a great medical program. The teachers are very knowledgeable and they encourage the students to learn.
One of the university's strong points is the general willingness of professors to allow students to conduct research in their labs. I have been able to work in three different labs during my fours years at the University of Miami and have gained invaluable experience in each lab. Academic advisors often help students with obtaining a place in a lab by recommending researchers with similar interests to the student and by informing students of research opportunities.
It's basically always summer in Miami but when it rains it rains!! My school is like a tropical paradise in the middle of metropolitan Florida!
Those with hectic schedules, online is the way to go.
The campus is beautiful. We are in such a beautiful part of the country that is never cold and is always beautiful and sunny. Even when it is raining, such as now due to the tropical storm in the area, the rain is warm and misty, it is simply beautiful. The beach is not far away, and fun is never not to be had. Also, the people around you in the classes are genuinely interested in learning.
The most frustrating thing would have to be the tuition and how expensive it is. A person from my background cannot afford it without help.
Conservative and non open minded people. People who do not like diversity.
Your lower levels courses will be a mixed bag. ENG112 with Flores is CAKE, but FIN302 with Bernille is being MASOCHISTIC. Don't take BSL212 with Abril, she's too hot for you to pay attention to! The students are all expected to contribute to the class and professors try to get to know you personally. Depending on who you associate yourself with, your conversations will vary. Personally, as comfortable debating the merits of Marx or the writing of Voltaire, as I am recalling keg stands at the SigEp parties. If your a go-getter, get ready for competition. The students in the School of Business administration are extremely proud of thweir achievements and hungry for recognition. A Miami degree is geared towards entry into the workforce. Professors all have meningful experience in relations to their subjects and can offer some insight, when asked. The Toppel Career center tries to place students into lucrative and challenging jobs, so don't be surprised if the guy with the A in your Statistics or Economics class works for Goldman Sachs...
The most popular student activities/ groups at the University of Miami are Greek affiliations and sport teams/groups.
The best thing about Miami...where to start...we can talk about the world class professors (Dean of the the School of Business, taught at Wharton), we can talk about the broad academic options, the endless amount of student organizations, the beautiful campus in the heart of affluent Coral Gables, the diverse student body, the storied athletic program, it's all there!
When you tell and employer or even someone you just met you're a Miami student, you can notice a slight change. Employers are impressed and people ask whether you're rich or smart. Although few can claim the first, almost all Miami students can claim the latter. Studying at Miami allows you to mix academics, with a WORLD CLASS PARTY SCENE! SoBe and the Grove are minutes away!
It's not really a college town and people are always on the move in Miami, there's just so much to do. One thing though...get ready for the traffic...there is over 10 million registered vehicles in Miami-Dade County. If you want to stay on campus, there's the Cosford cinema, events at the Rock, and for the sports-junkies, get your fix at the Rat. For the adventurous...sex in the Stacks if you can manage it will grant you entry into a very exclusive club.
Everyone is proud to be a Miami Hurricane, and when the football picks up, we'll be back with a vengeance! R.I.P.: Kelly Anne Jones!
No stereotype, UM welcomes all students with open arms.
They could not be further from the truth! When I took my campus tour and meet with current students I was impressed. I don't know about the other schools but the students from the School of Business are all driven. I know people who speak five languagues, some who hold patents, some that go Europe to intern for DLA Piper, Deloitte, and the British House of Commons. I am not going to lie, there's nothing like a weekend in Miami, but UM students play hard and work HARDER!
The biggest stereotype about UMiami is that all of the students are rich and overly materialistic. Yes, this is true of some students here, but I think it would be impossible to find a school where there are not some students like that.
Library. Outside by the lake. Your room.
On the inside.. can't you see??
I wish I could say that the 'Canes are back in action, but sadly we're not doing so well right now. However, the silver lining is that any game lost was only by a few points, but thats also something to cry over.
Club, Intermural, and Intramural sports are all highly participated in, in addition to varsity sports! The club sports here travel to nationals annually.
