University of Miami Reviews
The campus is beautiful. Everywhere you look is palm trees and clear skies (with the exception of your occasional rain shower) the university does a nice job maintaining the buildings and surrounding vegetation.
Food wise the options aren’t the greatest. In the past few years there has been an attempt to bring in healthier options, but for the most part the dinning hall and food court include your average Starbucks, subway, panda, so on and forth.
Safety campus is very safe Never had any issues.
Overall a great school!
Miami is a world of its own. The city has an incredible energy with so much to do - nightlife, the beach, music festivals. But UM is located in Coral Gables, which is a little ways away from the drama but has its own charm.
Honestly, there is a lot more to say but it comes down to this: if you're open-minded, passionate, and looking for the perfect balance between academics and fun, this is the place for you. GO CANES!
