I'm very happy I chose to attend the University of Miami. The system they use to help students fulfill their general education requirements makes them stand out. I was able to choose classes that I actually wanted to take, and the ability to explore classes that are outside of one's major or minor is fantastic.

The University of Miami is a fantastic place to grow academically, professionally, mentally, and socially. I believe the resources it has to offer provide amazing support and opportunities for students, so long as we reach out and maintain a proactive approach to career development while enrolled. My personal favorite part of the University of Miami is my involvement with the band. It has offered friendships and passion; hard work and dedication; professional development. I have learned so much about what it means to have bottomless school spirit and fun, while maintaining a very sound composure in representing the school. The band director is in many ways a role model. From his friendly approach to all students, to his leadership structure and thought out analysis of T.A. and student staff involvement to micromanage improvement and morale. This program has inspired me and made me fall in love with the school, if only for the culture I get to be a part of.

The U is a great experience it's filled with a diverse student population and there is always something to do. Whether it's sitting by the pool, studying in the library, or at a football game. Being in Miami is just a plus
