Nareka Trewick - 3/27/2017
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016
"My experience at the University of Miami was enriching both inside and outside of the classroom. As a medium-sized school, I felt the environment was small enough for me to build meaningful relationships with faculty and administrators but also large enough that I met new people in my class each of my four years. I was heavily involved in leadership and service programming, which allowed me to develop myself, as well as create that opportunity for those younger than me. I highly recommend UM, knowing that on our diverse campus there is an opportunity for any student to find their niche if they choose to seek one."

"The school's main draw is an extensive networking program. The South Florida area is full of well known professionals who are intertwined with UM in some form or manner. The campus is as diverse as any in the world. The beach is around the block so you can't go wrong with the weather. The engineering and music/arts programs are phenomenal, and the sports programs are excellent and historically well-known. The professors here are very welcoming and most are great teachers as well. The campus diversity is diverse in the sense that you'll definitely see one of everything, but don't expect a pack of diverse groups at once, people still stay in cliques. The price of the school is constantly rising despite lack of increasing scholarships, so that's a major drawback. The funding goes to development of new buildings and business affiliates instead of scholarship funds, which is odd. Great school, great location."

Galie Darwich - 3/17/2017
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2014
"The University of Miami is a great school to study Broadcast Journalism. Compared to others universities, UM offers the students hands-on learning experience in their television station, UMTV and awesome networking opportunities. I was the Executive Producer for UniMiami, UMTVs Spanish news show and all the experience I acquired there prepared me for life after college and to work on the television industry. I can assure you that without this experience I would not had been able to do a great job on my career after graduation."

Graduation Year: 2015
"UM is a great place to experience diversity, school spirit, and life in a community rather than completely centered on school. Miami excels in research and preparation for pre health students. We also have a great music program and plenty of student organizations to be a part of. I'd highly suggest visiting the greater Miami area and getting a feel for your fit culturally. Attending UM is much more than being at school. You are part of a very diverse and unique community. If you dislike the Miami vibe you may also dislike your time at UM."

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2019
"UM offers so many opportunities and makes it so easy to apply and get in involved with organizations and internships in your field. Course selection is dedicated to ensuring you are learning the essentials for your degree along with advice and insight into your career field. Everyone is truly there to help you and as long as you are willing to put in the work and reach out to programs, they will give you everything you need to know to gain experience and be successful. Only piece of advice would be to keep a close eye on schedules/finances just to ensure everything is correct. Do not fret if something is wrong, make a call and they will work with you to resolve the issue quickly."

"Attending the University of Miami was an amazing experience. The campus offers a variety of organizations for students to become involved in and meet new people. Whatever your interests may be, you will be sure to find an organization and individuals who think just like you. If not, then students have the power to create their own. Our university leaders are very open to student requests and meeting their needs to ensure their happiness and growth at the University of Miami. The university also holds many events and activities throughout the day from tabling in the breezeway, free food, the farmers' market, recruiting and lecture seminars, and much more. There is never a dull day on campus! Academically, the university works to foster an environment where students can receive support and prosper. Students who graduate from this institution go off to do great things with the education and experience they received at this wonderful university."

"School to career transition is very poor. School is good on school spirit . Education that the staff and faculty has is ok. The courses are very challenging but that is a good thing. For all the money you pay you would hope to have a decent job afterwards.not the case"

Aly - 5/31/2016
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2012
"I absolutely loved my time at the U. It's very expensive, so if you don't get in on a scholarship and your parents aren't paying, be careful because graduating with loads of student debt is no fun. You can get as good of an education at cheaper schools. But other than that I have nothing but good things to say about UM. The campus life/social atmosphere is probably the best part. I made some of my best life-long friends during my 4 years of undergrad. I highly recommend living on campus and learning to salsa dance with Salsa Craze (or joining another student organization that sparks your interest-- there are dozens to choose from!)"

Pre-pharmacy grad 2012 - 5/29/2015
Degree: Pre-Medicine
Graduation Year: 2012
"The program curriculum is strong and prepares you well for pharmacy school, especially since this university is highly ranked in the medical field. However, it is still important for students to familiarize themselves with the prerequisites of the specific pharmacy school(s) they are considering."
