4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics play a huge role at UM. With all Division 1 sports teams, some of the top performing in the country (baseball and tennis), there are plenty of activities to get excited about. If you are a sports fan, the sense of community, team pride, and fan support is second to none here. From tail gating to fan-packed stadiums, there is something for everyone. If you like sports but don't want to participate in varsity sports, there are plenty of intramural and club sports to choose from.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: UM is an incredible top 50 university in the tropics with something to offer for everyone. Passionate professors that are the best in their respective fields, and a sense of community that cares about success. No matter what you aspire to do, UM will help you achieve the utmost success in that field. They will help bridge the gap between you and your goals, and if they can't do it, their extensive network of alumni will be there to help.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Good place to meet other people and the community style isnt too bad once you get used to it.

3 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We need a stadium nearby and we also need an indoor practice field.

4 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel like Miami has a good alumni network, and a good "brand." There's also a good connection with the medical school, and a program that allows you to begin medical school early.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus feels pretty safe to me, and I did not feel unsafe wandering campus at night (when in a group).

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are small but adequate and easy to make feel like home. I lived on a substance free floor and loved it-- it was quiet and calm and everyone was very nice. I also adored my RA. The communal bathroom left a lot to be desired. The showers often had loose hair in them, the temperatures were inconsistent (shifted between freezing and scalding hot entirely on their own), and the drains occasionally became backed up.

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.
