I love attending the University of Miami! My experience at the University of Miami has been nothing less than personal. The teachers and staff are very personal and truly care about my overall learning experience. When I think of my college experience here, I think of family.

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
My experience at University of Miami so far has been very enriching. I have learned a lot about myself and my interests in the first year itself. As a Biology major, I have already had the opportunity to engage in research. There are many resources available that can guide you towards making the most out of your academic experience.
The diversity on campus is very evident and beautiful. You can walk through campus and hear at least 3 of more languages being spoken. The campus is also very gorgeous. You are surrounded by nature and the lake is the most wonderful sight at any time of day.
The only thing I would improve is the food in the dining hall which is very repetitive and there is not much variety at all.
