Looking for a diverse, inclusive, student body, energetic vibe, great weather, with a wide range of academic options and don’t mind Ubering throughout Miami? Check out Miami.
It’s not difficult to understand why so many northerners are attracted to UM. Being on campus does feel a bit like being on vacation in Miami.
Top programs at UM are biological and life sciences, business, marine sciences, communications, music, pre-med, pre-law, and pre-dental.
They also have an Health Professions Mentoring Program for top students interested in medicine.
We saw nearly every nationality, ethnicity, race and religion well represented.
We were struck by how everyone seemed to blend together as opposed to some other campuses where you see groups of similar students keeping to themselves.
The school is big enough to have impressive class and program choices, student resources, and sports programs, but small enough so that it feels manageable.
