I am a freshman at the University of Miami studying biomedical engineering and I love it! The campus is beautiful and there are so many things to get involved in. Students are all hardworking and care about each other. There are so many resources for help with classes, such as free tutoring by students. The local area is nice but you cannot really get anywhere by walking, so most students have cars. Also, not many students live on campus after freshman year. Overall, I have had a great experience so far
Review University of Miami
The campus is amazing, the student body is extremely diverse and there is always something fun to do. The current dorms kinda suck but they are in the process of building new ones. Make sure to use RateMyProfessor when making your schedule and get a dining plan with lots of CaneDollars!
The University of Miami is the perfect balance of academic achievement, sports excellence, and social fun. Students here live by the motto "work hard, play hard." Because of our location as a major port city there are so many opportunities to work with, meet people, and experience cultures from not just Latin America but the world as a whole. UM is also a good satellite school for other elite universities, I know people who now attend Harvard, Princeton, UChicago, Notre Dame, and Stanford based on their experiences at UM.
