University of Miami Reviews
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
Overall my experience at UM was everything I hoped it would be. I was able to enroll into interesting courses, the campus is very diverse, I was able to study abroad several times, the campus is just absolutely gorgeous, and experiencing Miami is exciting. However, the housing and food was lackluster at best, I felt isolated at times by the overwhelming party scene, living in Miami (especially off campus) can become financially and emotionally exhausting, and the bureaucracy of the school was abysmal. And while I was able to make friends, meeting people was a challenge for me sometimes because a lot of students were superficial. I was able to get a job right out of college and I feel that UM has forever impacted me and how I see the world. If I could do over again, I would probably still go to school there, but it's no paradise make no mistake.
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!
