Student Testimonials

’Cane for a Day was just what I needed to help me make my college decision. I was able to spend the day as an actual college student and see if I fit in at UM. Not only did I have the chance to interact with current students, but I also experienced a college class and got to take a personal tour of the entire campus. It was extremely helpful to me because I wanted to spend my next four years somewhere I felt comfortable and at home. The ’Cane for a Day experience gave me the chance to try out UM life before I made my important choice. By the end of the day, I knew that Miami was the right place for me.

The ’Cane for a Day program is great because it allows prospective students to get a taste of what a typical day at UM is like. Through ’Cane for a Day, I learned a lot about the beautiful campus and school traditions while meeting lots of people who I kept in touch with and ended up becoming really close to. It’s something I would definitely recommend to all future ’Canes!

Having grown up with the University of Miami in my backyard, I originally thought that ’Cane for a Day would just simply be another tour of the University. I was happily proved wrong! ’Cane for a Day truly allows each student to get a glimpse of what college life is all about. My experience consisted of participating in a Marketing class discussion and then heading over to have lunch with my ’Cane for a Day host at The Rat followed by another course in rock music appreciation. Overall, I was delighted that I participated in ’Cane for a Day as this was my first true University of Miami experience and it let me see what it really means to be a MIAMI HURRICANE!
