The CC Community on University of Miami

"From what my [daughter] tells me there is an intense club scene that many students enjoy. She felt it was not for her. Also, frats have pool parties. Since there is no town area in walking distance most frat parties are off-campus and they Uber to them. She joined a sorority (they have spring rush) and is enjoying the social activities the pledge class is doing. I’d say overall the social scene is intense at Miami and not a typical college scene. That might be difficult for some kids. It’s taken my [daughter] a while to feel comfortable with it all and she’s super social."
