My first month of school at the University of Miami has been one with a plethora of talking points. The first few weeks that I was here and classes had not yet started were truly some to remember. Hanging out with friends and going out to social events truly made for a great time at a great college. However, it was inevitable that classes would soon start and I would have to get back into the groove of things. This, along with 8:00 am classes several times a week, has truly been one of the downs during my time here at the U.
Nonetheless, school has begun and academic goals are important to state. My personal goals in this course as well as all of my others is to do well, learn new things, and get all A’s. This is what got me into the U, and I am sure that is what will keep me here! In addition to this, another one of my goals is finding a viable balance between work and play. Being in college for most people means parties every night. Although I want to have a good time and enjoy myself, I understand that academics always come first due to how heavily they weigh on my future.
The University of Miami has been a college I have heard about for years. From watching the football games to attending campus tours, I thought I had seen everything the U had to offer. However, my past month here has strongly disproved this. The University of Miami has lived up to my expectations and easily surpassed them. Every aspect of this institution has a strong foundation that makes it difficult to be rivaled.
The main thing that brought me to UM was the tradition. The tradition was so powerful, and unparalleled by anything I had seen or have seen. I can honestly say now that I am a student here that this still holds true. Being a student at the University of Miami truly means that you bleed orange and green. Moreover, the traditions of culture, excitement, and success have all been instilled in me as I have progressed through my freshman year. The University of Miami is an ocean of adventure, and for as much fun as I have had, I know that I have only gotten my feet wet.
