There are a lot of reasons why students apply early to the university of their dreams. Here are a few reasons why some of our current and past students knew the University of Miami was their first choice. Get a glimpse into student life as they learn from faculty, conduct research, and explore their interests.

 

"What sets UM apart from every other school is that it's very diverse. The Miami Business School pinpoints at being global and how important it is to be a global citizen."
"What motivates me is that I really like a challenge. The professors at the College of Engineering are very nice and open to helping students."

"Having a big city, living here in Miami, and being able to study architecture—you are able to see different works from different architects."

"I saw myself in sports, where I had played all my life. As I started working with the [Miami Hurricanes men's basketball] team, I didn't see my life anywhere else, but on the court."


"Having access to the Simulation Lab is extremely beneficial. I can apply everything I've learned in the classroom, and then go back and debrief."
"I knew UM was a good fit when the teaching classes I was taking were really applicable. A lot of the classes here have field experiences. They place you in elementary schools."


"When people ask me why I do music, it's because I love to do it. There hasn't been one day where I want to quit."
"I get to shadow in Miller [School of Medicine] at the parasitology lab. My research is focused on malaria."

"The Launch Pad was an incredible resource and I knew I needed something like that in my life to really accelerate my entrepreneurial journey."

"I believe the ocean is a priceless resource that everyone has some sort of connection to." 

"My passion is telling stories and creating theater, film, being able to give something to a large group of people through the performing arts."
"In virtually every class in the School of Communication, I have a hands-on learning experience."
