University of Miami Students Tell It Like It Is
Did You Know?
In the 1970s, the University of Miami was known as "Suntan U." Fun-loving hippies flocked from around the country to party on their parents' money for four years. Since that era ended, UM has done a great job in climbing its way into the top tier of American colleges. Although Miami is still a great party town, most of UM's students are here with academics in mind, as well as nightlife and beaches. But what's going on around campus today?
Check out College Prowler's University of Miami guidebook to find out about the current "stereotypical student." College Prowler gives you the most honest pros and cons available-the unbiased opinions of current students, for prospective students. How else can you begin to decide if you'll fit in under the Miami sun? Find out more on the U of Miami's . . .
Local Atmosphere: "The town is perfect for a college campus. It has its great spots, good spots, and the ones you need to avoid, as well. Other universities are present and are a noticeable factor in the community. The city atmosphere provides a good cultural, as well as career-oriented, atmosphere."
Diversity: "This school is called the global campus for a reason. I have met fewer Americans than any other ethnicity. I truly love that about this school."
Drug Scene: "In Miami, there are many problems with such drugs as ecstasy. However, I have not seen very much, as I have never been around or really been introduced to a drug beyond marijuana. I have been told there are pretty heavy drugs around, I just don't know what and where."
The Girls: "The girls are awesome. Watch out for personality. Some girls in Miami lack it! But beauty is definitely not a problem."
. . . And the Guys: "The guys are short like me, for the most part, unlike a northern school where the shortest guy is six feet tall."
And more? Find out if the University of Miami truly has something for you, straight from the students' mouths.
