University of Miami Reviews
I picked UM because I wanted to stay living in Miami and my parents went there. My brother currently goes there now too. We are a full fledge UM family. It's in our blood I guess! The campus is gorgeous. The classrooms are modern. The resources and diversity are endless. Students are friendly and very school spirited. There is much participation and enthusiasm in all regards. What I would like to see change among the student body is the "rich-kid" vibe. Seeing as it is a private school, many students come from affluent backgrounds and it is reflected in their sense of entitlement and the flashy brands they are constantly clad in.
My son transferred from a huge public college and is always raving about UM. The size is just right (11,000), small enough that he sees people he knows on campus. The best thing is the students—friendly and want to have fun—not drinking/smoking (my son doesn't do)— enjoying life with a positive attitude. He's always telling us it's like a dream come true. Transfer student orientation was many days so they could adjust. Ranked #46 in the nation. Huge school spirit, games are a blast. Often something fun to do on campus—the school sponsors fun activities for them. Miami is near. Food court has good restaurants. Admin is competent and friendly. Negatives: Dorms are super old and windows are unopenable so mold grows in the showers. Send a cleaner for your child—I was appalled at the end of the year! They are building a new, modern dorm in the middle of campus. Dining Hall food is okay but not great. The U has changed my son's life!
Before attending UM, I was pretty nervous because I thought it would be all preppy kids, but I have learned that the college experience is truly what you make it. UM is so diverse, that there is truly someone for everyone. For academics, good grades do not come easy, so you have to be willing to put in the work. The good thing about UM is when you're done with all of your work, you have the opportunity to explore the Miami city, or just go out to an event with friends!
