Academics

“Gorgeous” University of Miami offers an “incredible range” of courses of study, chief among them “great programs in the sciences, engineering [and] music.” Class sizes are small and internship opportunities are plentiful. Students here feel that they’re getting a “well-rounded education,” and “making connections” that they can capitalize on in the future. Though many undergrads report that their “courses are difficult,” they also find them incredibly “rewarding.” Inside the classroom, Miami students are delighted to find the majority of their professors are “easily approachable” and “incredibly knowledgeable.” They clearly want “their students to learn and succeed.” Indeed, “they are always there for you and open to helping in any way they can.” Moreover, professors here are “well informed on the topic and are [typically] accessible after class.” As one grateful student sums up, “I have had great academic success at UM largely because of my supportive and helpful professors. They deserve a lot more credit than they receive.”

Student Body

Many undergrads at University of Miami proudly report that their peers are “very diverse.” Indeed, you’ll find that “there are people here from all over the world with different cultures, different experiences, and different likes and dislikes.” As one amazed student shares, “You can hear so many different languages being spoken on campus.” Nevertheless, while you might encounter people from around the country and the globe, a handful of undergrads insist that a number of their fellow students are “frat bros and girls that [simply] want to have fun.” Additionally, a lot of students appear to come from “very affluent” families and “luxury cars and going out to clubs on South Beach aren’t out of the ordinary.” However, others are quick to describe the culture as “very inclusive and understanding.” And many assert that University of Miami students are “always willing to help out and assist you in finding your way.” Another undergrad bolsters this claim by sharing, “I was lost on the first day of my first semester and an upperclassman pointed me in the direction of my class without being asked! It really made my day.” Perhaps most importantly, we’ve been assured that “everyone can find their own social group here.”

Campus Life

“There is always something going on” at the University of Miami. The campus is frequently abuzz with a multitude of fun events like the “farmers market, patio jams…and random activities [such as] laser tag, corn hole, food trucks [and] Frisbee game[s].” “The majority of students are involved in more than one campus club or activity” and a number of undergrads seek out volunteer opportunities. As one student explains, “We also have special service days that get good turnouts including Gandhi Day, Orientation Outreach, and MLK Day of Service.” And plenty of undergrads spend their time “poolside, beachside, tailgating, anything they can find to have a good time.” University of Miami also has a “very active/sporty population” with many students participating in both “club sports [and] intramural sports.” Additionally, “Greek life is relatively popular, though the community is very welcoming and non-exclusive.” And students also love “Canes After Dark [which often sponsors] cool activities like movies by the pool or snowball fights.” Finally, nearby Miami “provides a lot of opportunity for adventure.” Indeed, it has a “vibrant night life,” a “wide array of cuisine,” world-class museums, and beautiful beaches. You couldn’t ask for anything more!
