College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am a freshman so i do not know about off-campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Miami is a party place almost anywhere

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of restaurants across the street.

3 College Freshman

Administration: If caught with alcohol, you are in trouble.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Make sure that your grades are excellent.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There isn't much variety with the food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms in Eaton are the largest so it's great if you have a lot of stuff. My only issues are that the walls are very thin and the elevators are so slow, even if it's four floors. Despite this, everyone in the building is nice and the front desk employees are helpful. Not only that the resident assistants and academic fellows try their best to make sure that everyone gets along and are involved on campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Wonderful on campus living and a great sense of community and social atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus, but from what I've heard its a pretty great option.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: One of the top party schools in Florida. There is always something to do and something for everyone.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Many options for off campus dining and affordable too.

4 College Freshman

Administration: There's a good balance between keeping policy and being overbearing when it comes to strictness.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received an academic scholarship, but other than that, scholarship opportunities are rare for those who don't qualify for need.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food courts have many options and is relatively priced and you can use dining dollars if you have a meal plan, however the dining halls can sometimes be hit or miss.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have come to dislike the student health center as I believe they just recommend prescriptions/ medicines that aren't really necessary but we have to pay for anyways and because every time I have gone the doctors have not been able to tell me what I have but seem to be guessing.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not think very highly of those in fraternities or sororities, especially the non-ethnic fraternities. Too much has come to light regarding their racism, and sexism, and it makes me wholly uncomfortable. I do my best to avoid the people in fraternities and their parties.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics make attending the school very fun. However, I am not athletic so I do not participate personally.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am interested in off campus housing however I did not look into it much. I believe it is cheaper to live off campus and the living space would be much bigger and nicer.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I'm not really into partying so I don't know the best places to party. I know the club scene on South Beach is great however you have to be 21 for most of those clubs, which I am not. I'd much rather just hang out with my close friends than go party.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If I had a car I think I would eat off campus much more often. I wish I wasn't forced to buy the meal plan so I could use my money to eat other places.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I have had no issues with discipline or the administration so I do not have any negative feelings.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: When I arrived on campus the first day my family and I were sent to multiple offices across campus which was very annoying. If anything the two offices could at least be in proximity to each other.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I only eat in the dining halls because it's one of my very few options. The food is usually not very good even if it looks good. The only thin that is consistently good is the egg station where you can tell them exactly how to make your eggs, the bacon (because no one can mess up bacon), and the burgers/ hotdogs/ fries.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms weren't bad there was enough space for my roommate and I and all of our things. Our bathrooms however were not very appealing.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Involvement is great for football, but other sports tend to be played down.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
