3 College Junior

Academics: work load can be tough, some teachers are very helpful but some teachers that you have in the large lecture halls aren't very helpful

5 College Junior

Academics: The professors are great, you get to marine science classes early and work with the faculty

3 College Junior

Majors: I've switched between majors multiple times and am currently a triple major, I don't have a set idea of how any one major is.

College Junior

Majors: There is a center at um that helps students find an internship but I don't know much about it as I've yet to get one.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are students who give tours of campus to those who are interested in attending and a freshman orientation so new students know what's going on.

College Junior

Nightlife: I haven't really explored the nightlife around um much. From what I've heard there are plenty of clubs and places for students to go if they wish for both 21 and over and 21 under students.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I don't know what it's like for other students but I received a full tuitituon scholarship from Um and they're easy to work with if you have any financial aid questions.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The. University of Miami has a very large and nice gym available for all students and there are fields available for intramural a as well as for just rec activities.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Being in coral gables, um is in a relatively safe area compared to miami but not completely safe. Fortunately, The UMPD are quick to respond to any situation as well as to notify students of any possible problems on campus. If a student feels unsafe walking, they can call for an escort or a ride from the UMPD.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The University of Miami has a beautiful and very modern campus. There are plenty of places for students to go to study, hang out with friends, or just to relax.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The. University of Miami is in Coral Gables, close to Miami but not in the heart of the city so it's safer. Still there's plenty to do and many shopping centers and restaurants nearby and available by car, walking, bus, or the metro.

College Junior

Campus Strictness: I'm not really certai. How to respond on this. As long as you don't break the rules you won't get in trouble. The school is more interested in making sure students are safe than needlessly getting them into trouble,

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I'm only moving off campus this year. I've lived in dorms prior to that so I don't know much about off campus life.

College Junior

Greek Life: I know very little about Greek life at UM. Sororities and frags do plenty of social stuff on campus but they aren't a majority.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining at the University of Miami is buffet style so there are plenty of options. Unfortunately the hours are weird so depending on when you go, you nay have less options or the dining hall may be closed. Fortunately, you can get takeout if you're in a rush and there are other dining options on campus like subways, Starbucks, and a full food court.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Meh. The people in Greek life seem to like it. The people outside don't really care.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Miami is a hotspot for delicious food, whether it's cuban or french or indian. There's plenty of hole-in-the-wall delights like Mash Potatos behind Five Guys or Bollywood Masala. And for late night escapades, there's always the close to campus TGIF and Dennys.

Local Atmosphere: It's nice, but nowhere I'd want to live forever. Frankly I'm already getting itchy feet. Very pretty though.

Academics: The Psych department isn't very inviting but they do their jobs. And the Anthro teachers are phenomenal professionals, they really know their stuff. The workload can get a bit much though. Oh, and there's plenty of fun random classes too (Handdrumming :D)

5 College Junior

Academics: It's so great to be an Anthropology major. We have a little hobbit hole underneath the Merrick building, it's like being a Hufflepuff - underground, warm, and a lot of food. Also skeletons. A lot of skeletons.

Despite daily griping about tuition costs, parking, thunderstorms, and hard classes, most students really seem to enjoy UM. Excellent attributes like the nightlife, weather, and culture seem to cancel out some of the bad things about being in Miami. For some students, these bad things include the unapproachable "hot" girls and guys on campus, while others find life in the dorms to be a challenge. The complaints about college are basically what you'd expect to hear anywhere. It appears that the bad things at UM really aren't that bad, but the good things are very good. Miami is one of the coolest cities in the world for a college student, and that goes deeper than just the superficial bar and club scene.

Students who are unhappy generally figure it out within a semester and transfer out of UM, usually to somewhere closer to home. College is tough, especially the first couple weeks if you come without knowing anyone. Making a whole new group of friends for the first time since kindergarten is one of the hardest and most stressful things you may ever have to do. But the end result of this process is friendships that you'll likely maintain for the rest of your life. Whether it's your roommate, classmates, fraternity brother, or sorority sister, college is a time when you should make friends and have fun. Despite the initial challenges of coming to college, there are few cities in the world that are as fun as Miami.
