After University of Miami

So far, college has been more challenging than I expected it to be. My high school did a great job preparing me for it, but the great increase in workload between high school and college caught me off guard at first. Past that, life has been wonderful since moving to Miami! I get to study exactly what I want to, learn from some of the best professors in the field, and experience the fun and culture found in Miami. One of my favorite out-of-class experiences at the U has been meeting people from all around the world. The "super-diversity" of campus has become something I cherish about my school!

The academics are great! The professors are extremely knowledgeable in their field and they are willing to help their students to succeed. There are also many opportunities for studying, such as the academic center and student center. Additionally, during finals season the university provides many options for stress relieving and preparing for the exams. Registration at UM is clear but it is also very crazy and hectic.

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.
