It's a great campus, with many opportunities. The ability to take classes at all campuses, regardless of "home campus" is a blessing. If you are a regional student, and want to experience the main campus feel without paying main campus prices, you can do that. Also, you can bounce back and forth between which campus you take majority of your classes from through a simple application process. Also, many majors are available at the Regionals that give you a Miami education!

I love this school and everything it has to offer! There are so many opportunities available to students if they take the initiative! Staff and administration always do their best to help the students and always want them to achieve their best to the fullest potential! I am giving the school four stars because of location. It is located pretty much in the middle of nowhere, therefore students resort to the more popular activities such as binge drinking and drugs. While many don't engage in these activities, this school has a reputation of intense binge drinking and drug use.
As a minority student with no wealth, I was really nervous to come to Miami. It has a reputation for being overly preppy (which, for the most part, is true). But since being here, I've found my people and had so much fun! If you're in the same boat as I was, don't be afraid to come here. The party scene is great and if that's not your style, there's still tons of events and lots to do. The classes are hard but the professors make it better. Overall, it's been a great first year
