About MADE@Miami

MADE@Miami is designed to help you get the most out of your Miami experience. We promote qualities valued by the university community—Mentoring, Achievement, Diversity, and Excellence

  • Mentoring: Meet students, faculty, and staff who can guide you.
  • Achievement: Get resources to help you succeed academically.
  • Diversity: Learn about your fellow classmates and where you come from.
  • Excellence: Find out how to make the most of your time at Miami.

The MADE@Miami experience is like none other as we showcase what it truly means to make it at Miami through building relationships, navigating the transition from high school to college and learning more about ourselves and each other. You will have the opportunity to meet other first-year students from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds. You'll also meet faculty and staff who will serve as information mentors during the academic year. As a benefit to attending the MADE@Miami, you will be able to move into your residence hall (the same room you will have for the whole year) early. Commuter students are invited to join us as well!
