The best thing about Miami...where to start...we can talk about the world class professors (Dean of the the School of Business, taught at Wharton), we can talk about the broad academic options, the endless amount of student organizations, the beautiful campus in the heart of affluent Coral Gables, the diverse student body, the storied athletic program, it's all there! When you tell and employer or even someone you just met you're a Miami student, you can notice a slight change. Employers are impressed and people ask whether you're rich or smart. Although few can claim the first, almost all Miami students can claim the latter. Studying at Miami allows you to mix academics, with a WORLD CLASS PARTY SCENE! SoBe and the Grove are minutes away! It's not really a college town and people are always on the move in Miami, there's just so much to do. One thing though...get ready for the traffic...there is over 10 million registered vehicles in Miami-Dade County. If you want to stay on campus, there's the Cosford cinema, events at the Rock, and for the sports-junkies, get your fix at the Rat. For the adventurous...sex in the Stacks if you can manage it will grant you entry into a very exclusive club. Everyone is proud to be a Miami Hurricane, and when the football picks up, we'll be back with a vengeance! R.I.P.: Kelly Anne Jones!
Your lower levels courses will be a mixed bag. ENG112 with Flores is CAKE, but FIN302 with Bernille is being MASOCHISTIC. Don't take BSL212 with Abril, she's too hot for you to pay attention to! The students are all expected to contribute to the class and professors try to get to know you personally. Depending on who you associate yourself with, your conversations will vary. Personally, as comfortable debating the merits of Marx or the writing of Voltaire, as I am recalling keg stands at the SigEp parties. If your a go-getter, get ready for competition. The students in the School of Business administration are extremely proud of thweir achievements and hungry for recognition. A Miami degree is geared towards entry into the workforce. Professors all have meningful experience in relations to their subjects and can offer some insight, when asked. The Toppel Career center tries to place students into lucrative and challenging jobs, so don't be surprised if the guy with the A in your Statistics or Economics class works for Goldman Sachs...
The Miami student body is as diverse as it is beautiful. It is about 50/50, Miamians and out of towners. There's people from China, Australia, Nigeria, anb mostly every country you can think of. There's also a lot of New Yorkers and California blondes...I love it! Miami is very open to alternative groups (LGBT), and like most college campuses, it tends to lean towards the left. As for the money game...you have it all. Wealthy Jews from the North, the affluent Westerners, the old South gentry, and the questionably wealthy Latinos...but most of us are middle class.
