Drug Safety: You have access to it but it's not seen weird if you don't do drugs, there is soooo much stuff to do that really everyone is in their own world and nobody really cares to judge you based on the things you do.

Health & Safety: I've never heard of anything going on with safety on our campus, or had any problems regarding it. There's always police officers patrolling around campus, specially late at night. And if you ever feel unsafe there are buttons around campus on the light posts where you can press it and the police comes to you if you ever feel unsafe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You will find really big classes (50-80) and at the same time you will find small ones (-15) but the professors usually know how to handle such classes. The courses at Miami are very good and are layed out in a way to help you succeed, as long as you put your part the professors will do theirs and help you get to where you want to be.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career services here at UM are SO HELPFUL, they want you to be in the best place ever, and that all the work that you put into these last four years pays off, of course there is a lot of competitiveness but every school has that, I think they really do a good job by having the best companies come to their job fairs, and getting their name out there for those kids who deserve it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't as big as other dorms in other schools, but the layout is pretty convenient and I recommend living in the dorms your first year because that's where you will meet everyone.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life for girls isn't a MUST. For guys I think they get more out of their money... However being in greek life you do have more exposure to parties and social life outside of what goes on in the city.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Not many people are into sports, and we dont have a big crowd at times so our athletics isn't like a main priority at Miami. But we have really good equipments and coaches.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Great academics and a very international feel so you definitely grow as a person and learn not only in the classroom but outside as well.

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.
