I absolutely love being at the University of Miami! I've never felt more part of a community and I absolutely love being involved. Being involved on campus has made me learn more things about myself than a class ever will, helped me network in ways I never would've been able to on my own and it's made me love this school so much. For example, every summer, I'm part of Great Start, a pre-orientation program geared towards incoming commuter freshmen. I attended Great Start the summer coming to UM and it opened my eyes that living at home still means I can have an incredible college experience. I loved the program so much, I've been a counselor ever since; I won't even go on study abroad or long vacations because it means I might miss out on Great Start and that's simply not an option. Apart from Great Start, getting involved in other clubs and organizations have opened my eyes to the different people in the world, what I'm capable of, and how little four years really is. If I could do it all over again, I absolutely would. I wouldn't make any changes to what I've experienced at college so far.

From a student who applied to Miami as a safety last minute, I can say I made no better choice than coming here. Starting from the fantastic scholarship they gave me for academics, this school has given me a phenomenal education full of intelligent professors and challenging work. Furthermore, I have met so many amazing people, from the perky stereotypical Miami blondes to hard-core frat guys, to people so dedicated to their academics, admiration is an understatement. Of course, college is what you make of it, but it's hard to be depressed when you live in a city full of culture, that's always sunny, and beaming with energy. I cannot wait to continue my years here, with the great opportunities for work and research, and a great career center and alumni network to help the process. It's true, its great to be a Miami Hurricane!

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!
