YouNiversity of Miami: Bike Riders

Now it’s certainly true that everyone has the right to choose how he or she gets to class. Some choose to take the shuttle, some drive, the occasional peculiar person rollerblades or uses a scooter an...

YouNiversity of Miami – Living Off Campus

The standard progression for most students is to live in Hecht or Stanford freshman year, Eaton, Pearson, or Mahoney sophomore year and then move into either the University Village or off campus during the final two years of undergraduate study. This step from on campus to off campus is a big one and can be a confusing one too if you’re not careful.

YOUniversity of Miami – People outside the dorms

There’s nothing wrong with relaxing outside your dorm for a little. If you’re waiting for a ride, if you’re smoking, if you have fifteen minutes to kill between classes, then by all means, grab one of those green chairs, and post up!

Canes from other colleges

YOUniversity of Miami: Frat guys

It’s not hard to pick out the typical frat guy: popped polo collar, pre-frayed hat (how do hats get frayed?), doused in cologne, and rockin’ those dark sunglasses in the middle of the night for that killer Facebook pic. However, this is just one breed in the species of frat guys.

YOUniversity of Miami: Roommates

During freshman year, most students are randomly assigned a roommate. Whether they know who their roommate is or not, students go through the same thought process...

YOUniversity of Miami

Each year, dozens of international students come to the University of Miami to spend anywhere from a semester to four years at the school, bringing with them their customs, foods, music choices, and more. This melting pot adds a great international feel to our school, and I for one, love it.
