4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-Campus housing is widely available with close listings on the school's website. It is the same as most places, some are safer than others and some are more expensive than others. The prices are a little bit higher than they probably should be, but there are a variety of options.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The cost is a little bit high here, but the variety and convenience are great. The traffic is pretty bad, yet the places are still very convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The school is strict on some things that are reasonable, but also other things that are not as reasonable. The things they are lenient on are reasonable, also.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Party scene is great. There's always something going on.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining hall could definitely be better. Otherwise we could use more dining dollars to eat at healthier and better on campus options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm rooms could be better, but the cleanliness, amenities, and convenience are great.

Party Scene: I'm focusing more on my studies, but if you're into all that it's pretty good. It's Miami. There's parties for everyone.

2 College Senior

Campus Food: There is a lot of options on campus and they just renovated the food court. Personally, I still do not like the food on campus so I go elsewhere to eat. I do not like that the school requires a meal plan if you live in the dorms after your first year.

Campus Housing: I've been living in the dorms since I transferred here and they are okay. My biggest problem with them is that they look like hospitals. I would say the best dorms are Pearson or Eaton. Compared with other universities, the dorm do have more amenities.In terms of the housing process, I chose to be considered for the UV for my senior year and they're only considered me for the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lot's of choices which is expected in such a diverse environment.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They do their jobs well. At times they can be overly strict, but they aren't looking to get you in trouble for no reason. Just be smart and make good decisions.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They'll usually get you what you need to pay for a lot of the price.

Party Scene: Parties are always a big social event here. If you're a freshman guy, be prepared to pay. It's usually worth it though and you will have a fun time.

Campus Food: You'll find something you like there. When in doubt though, the dining halls will do the trick.

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.
