University of Miami Reviews
University of Miami is one of the most beautiful schools structurally as well as exceptionally academic. From its quaint fountain lake to its modern building architecture, UM's landscape is a playground. Ducks, lizards and all types of animals freely live in harmony with the amused students, creating an adventurous atmosphere. Professors are compassionate to individual student concerns, and are always there to aid in understanding the material or to listen with a genuine manner. The students are always grateful, seen walking around campus with a natural bliss created by the mixture of warm weather and visually pleasing stimuli. There are events everyday, either frat promotions, club activities, or donation collections. Donate a dollar and throw a pie in a participant's face! There is always something extracurricular to do on campus such as free concerts; Zedd performed this last year! Although UM is a lot of fun, the library is a special place for commitment to studying.
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!
