Having previously attended Miami for the Fall 2014-Spring 2015 school year, it was a lot to take in transitioning from a suburban high school to a university that's more or less in the middle of nowhere. The campus is absolutely breath-taking, the food is pretty diverse, and not a day goes by when there's NOT something going on, whether it's sports related, guest speakers, or performing arts. Regarding the students, a majority of them are actually pretty nice...preppy nonetheless, but nice. The campus is a lot bigger than I expected, so it was relatively easy to get my exercise for the day by simply walking to all of my classes! The professors are very passionate about their subjects, which they rightfully should be, and are more than willing to aid students whenever possible. Even when I was hospitalized for the majority of the Spring 2015 semester, my professors were more than willing to send me coursework and get me caught up. Although I ultimately had to take a Medical Leave of Absence from school, I would say that my experience at Miami thus far has exceeded my expectations, and my goal is to return for the Fall 2016-Spring 2017 school year and continue to get acquainted with the Code of Love & Honor and all things Miami.

Before college, I never thought that I would be in a sorority. Once I got to campus, however, I went to a few open Greek events and realized that the community at Miami was extremely welcoming and friendly. I ended up rushing and fell in love with the sorority I'm in now, Chi Omega. It really helped me get involved with the school and the student community through philanthropy and social events. I have built an amazing network that helps me with not only my social life, but my school life and working life. I have a few friends that are not in Greek Life and all of their opinions vary. Some are indifferent, some are thinking about rushing, and some make fun of it. Just like many topics, opinions are specific for each person. Because Greek Life is so prominent of Miami's campus though, many people who are not involved, don't mind it's existence and are involved with many other campus groups. Miami has 17 sororities on campus and even more fraternities. There is definitely a something for everyone!

Plenty of labs are available! Each library has computers open, Macs and PCs for student-use, equipped with all the necessary software and programs for students to utilize. Tech support is wonderful! Ultimately, what disappoints me is the lack of computer use in classrooms. High schools continue to emphasize computer use in classrooms, prepping students for college, where technology is everywhere, yet I haven't had but one course during my time here where professors allowed laptop use in the classroom. Professors claim that laptops are distracting and too many students simply go on Facebook, but ultimately, I see college students as adults. We must be allowed to make our own decisions, and laptops should be allowed and encouraged for note-taking.
