Deciding whether or not to study abroad, there are even more details to consider. There are specific recommendations that UM makes to the Parents & Guardians, as a parent you need to do what works for you and your student. Make a checklist of all the details before you push ‘go’.
When my first child left for UM, I wavered between giving her space to find her way and wanting to hear all about her life at college. I had such a wonderful college experience myself, I toggled between exuberant excitement for her and overwhelming sadness for me.
As with other college campuses, the amount of burger, pizza, and fast food restaurants at the University of Miami and the surrounding campus is a big reason for the Freshman 15. This is no surprise considering so many students live on a tight budget.
