    Tips for prospective students

    My one and only tip for prospective students is that if you do apply to MDC and are eligible for their HONOR COLLEGE program please apply, because I am part of the HC and it was the best choice I have ever made.

    Bang for the buck

    The money is also a reason why MDC is an excellent choice, here you pay little and learn alot.

    Am enjoying being here

    I do in fact enjoy being a student at Miami Dade College, because I feel that they give you the choice to choose from a variety of campuses and teachers at your own convinience.

    Am learning a lot

    At Miami Dade College you have the ability to learn from professors of all different backgrounds, whom all share a passion for learning and are interested in the well being of their students.

    Lazy & looking to catch a break for two years? Well then, Miami Dade is just the place for you! It's also great for anyone currently working a full-time job. And also, for anyone that is continuing there education after a long hiatus. If you have school spirit and are interested in participating in school events then this is NOT the school for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for the honors college! I wish I would have known it existed before hand. The students in the honors program receive full tuition including books. They get extreme VIP treatment. It is obviously more enduring than the regular classes, but so much more worth it. If you're not honors college material then just sit back & relax because this school is just a two-year extension of high school.

    Did enjoy being here

    The only aspect of Miami Dade that was enjoyable was the fact that showing up to class is optional 90% of the time. So, you can easily get other things done with your life.

    Students who had a low GPA in highschool and are hoping to put forth more effort in college.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't procrastinate, make your time at Miami-Dade everything your High School Academic Career wasn't and a great University will be waiting for you!

    Bang for the buck

    I believe my money is well spent at Miami-Dade. There is always something I can do. I don't have a car so when i'm at Miami-Dade I have to make sure I get things done. If I don't have homework or anything otherwise academic to do I can go to the library, or the gym, or even the swimming pool. It's a low key school and every dollar was well spent.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy going to school at Miami-Dade, it lets me work and go to school and not miss a beat on my chores at home. Sometimes it can be overwhelming with homework, work, and home/family duties but its worth it!

    Am learning a lot

    I am actuallly fascinated by the classes here. I am taking classes such as The Social Enviornment, Psychology of Personal Effectiveness, Etc. Miami Dade has so many helpful attributes. For example Math Lab, Reading Lab, Writing Lab, Tutors, Lots of places to sit and do homeworks, a huge computer lab, and an amazing array of teachers.

    Students who want to finish school quickly and affordable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective student should register early for classes so that you choose the ones you want because classes go by super quick and are filled up day-by-day.

    Bang for the buck

    Definitly is the best for student tight on money. The amount per credits is unbeatable and worth the money. Can not complain with the cost's at Dade they are very descent and affordable for everyone.

    Am enjoying being here

    There isnt much to enjoy when it comes to school but here at Miami Dade I have no complaints and am enjoying my college years so far. the atmosphere is nothing major or distracting, its just come to class, learn, and leave.

    Am learning a lot

    I have been attending Miami Dade for a year and a half and am very satisfied and have learned a lot through out my semesters attending. Teachers here at Miami Dade are good and are very helpful. Miami Dade also has many labs that offer help ans assistance, for instance the 'Math Lab' which has teachers there that offer their help free and is what helped me get through both my math courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not be procrastinators about picking your classes. Even if it may be a pain to try to pick your classes whether you go to student services or sign up online always try to get your classes the first week they open up. That way you can get the schedule you want and find the best teacher through Ratemyprofessor.com. Also If you have decided what your majoring in, go to the main department in which your major falls in. You will find out what classes you must take for your major during each semester, if not you could fall behind because some classes can only be taken during certain semesters

    Bang for the buck

    As an in-state student the cost for classes are not a huge dent in you pocket like many of the other universities in the area. Some classes are more expensive then others but the cost is a million times better then most schools.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is huge and there is so many places to relax and do your work. There are many people on campus to help you with whatever you may need: questions, advice and tutoring.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors at Miami Dade College are great! Every professor i've had for the past four semesters have been amazing. Ive learned so much about myself through these teachers and im so glad to have been able to sit in their classrooms. They really do care and want you to pass their class

    Miami Dade College has something for EVERY type of student out there, you just have to ask! Seek and you shall find. Here at Miami Dade, there is such a variety of students that everyone has a place to fit in. SIDE NOTE: Students who are extra studious, want to challenge themselves, like smaller class sizes and have a weighted high school GPA of a 3.7 or higher, or a college GPA of a 3.5 and above - should consider applying to the Honors College! It is a fantastic program and has opened my doors in countless ways! Don't be afraid to APPLY!

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of all the different opportunities Miami Dade College has to offer. Apply for the different Study Abroad programs, get involved in different clubs and organizations and establish a relationship with ALL of your professors, whether you like them or not. Don't sell yourself short and think oh, this is just Miami-Dade because it is a great stepping stone to start your path onto success and there are so many people that are willing to help you and guide you along the way! Take advantage of what you have at Miami Dade while you're there.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade College is not expensive to begin with and either way, there is financial aid offered. Most people attending Miami Dade college receive financial aid assistance or get a loan from Miami Dade and create a payment plan in order to pay it off. Unfortunately, I am biased in this area because as a Miami Dade Honors College Student, everything is paid for so there are no worries in that aspect. You're allowed to take as many classes as you want (and pass them of course) without any worries of having the sufficient funds to pay the tuition and any other fees. Either way, you're getting what you pay for - if not more at Miami Dade College!

    Am enjoying being here

    As an Honors College Student at Miami Dade College, I feel that teachers become part of our family. We go to them for help with school, advice on transferring and just to talk about whatever is on our mind. I have also become very involved in different clubs and organizations where i get to meet different people and really network and establish friendships. Miami Dade has a very comforting environment and a lot of places to study. You can enjoy the quiet setting of a library, browse and search the web in the computer courtyard or just sit outside on a table, pull out your books and study under the sunlight while experiencing the cool shade of the trees.

    Am learning a lot

    At Miami Dade College, I have been lucky enough to have the top-notch Professors who are there to teach students to and I don't mean by just memorizing information for a test and then forgetting it the moment you walk out. Professors make sure you know the material by providing power point hand outs, study guides and test reviews, and allowing you to visit them in their office during their corresponding hours. Teachers take the time to help you understand the material before moving on to another chapter and really focus on YOU! Professors want you to take the information you learned in their class and apply it to your life outside of the classroom.

    Miami Dade College is great for anyone who wishes to pursue a lifelong career. From a certificate for Medical Assistant to a Bachelor Degree in Nursing. There are options for everyone not just for the studious of the studious students.

    Tips for prospective students

    -Register for classes early! They get filled really fast. -Don't be afraid to take a mini-term or accelerated course. It is a great way to accumulate credits. Just make sure you are on top of game, so you won't put your GPA in danger. -If books are to expensive don't buy. Instead rent or check out the school library and print the pages for term. -Do have small talk with people in class. Comes in very hand when absent or studying for midterms/finals.

    Bang for the buck

    Definitely 100% bang for the buck. Credits per semester is half the price from a University. Computer labs open daily for students and a library. Lunch time is the best because there is a McDonald's from across the campus and a food service area within the campus. Must I admit the food is high quality and cheap! Oh! My favorite gym-membership is only $30/mo and you are not restricted to one gym but can go to any in the Miami Dade College campus's...Great way to meet new people.

    Am enjoying being here

    With Wolfson Campus located right at the heart of Downtown Miami I have accessible transportation. Such as the Metro-Mover, Metro-Rail , Metro-Bus. Not forget how close I am just three minutes away from The American Airlines Arena and the famous social hangout Bayside.

    Am learning a lot

    Teachers are very educated and are always willing to help you out when school work/homework get to difficult. As a freshman at Miami Dade College- Wolfson Campus I have become a more independent and strong student. With all the cultural diversity at hand I have learned to interact with people from all over the world! Everyday is a new and exciting day.

    Dedicated, and students who really want to be someone in life. MDC is a great place to pursue a degree.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't start college thinking that it is going to be like High School! Go head on and be very dedicated, set high goals so you can achieve them. College is no joke! Study hard and you WILL see inspiring results!

    Bang for the buck

    This is the best education for the price you pay! It's unbelievable that it's so cheap compared to other colleges, and I mean why pay more some other place when you can get the same education for a better price?! Not only that but with MDC you have the advantage of having more than one campus, so when a class is not available in one you can always go to the next nearest campus.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am enjoying very much attending Miami Dade. My teachers really try to help out the students and make sure they pass the class with decent grades. The only way a student can't pass a class is if they are not taking it seriously.

    Am learning a lot

    This school is amazing! You really learn and all the faculty is so nice. You feel as if they are really helping you reach your goal. The teachers are so kind, they really try to help students in and out of class. Many of my teachers have provided office hours where the students can go and ask them questions. It feels as if they are always there for us.

    If you are planning to attend a 4 year university you can take your prerequisites and basic courses at Miami Dade College for a cheaper price then transfer them to your preferred 4 year university. Definitely check out the option because it will save you a lot of money.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade College is ideal for the person who doesn't have the money to attend a 4 year university right off the bat. You will get the same exact education just for a lower price! It's pretty simple.

    Great school with an amazing environment and of course the amazing professors of which there are no words to describe. There is so much to learn and this is the place to begin your educational career.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors here have a lot to teach, and a lot to say about their respective subjects as they come from a variety of backgrounds. And that in itself makes it worth attending this college. No question about it you will learn a lot.

    Great college and you will learn a lot, there are things to get involved in and around the school and it will be a good starting place for currently, unfocused, high school student.

    Bang for the buck

    Since it's a junior college, it's not as expensive as a college, or university, and fairly affordable. I don't receive financial aid and the books required for class are steep when you absolutely need a new one.

    Am enjoying being here

    Because it's so close to home, I am ready to go! I want to go off to a 4 year university after I receive my A.A. and experience the real college experience while still striving for my post-secondary completion. There is a lot to do around and in Miami, but I was born and raised here and am ready for something different.

    Am learning a lot

    Many teachers, so far, like to go off on tangents while teaching while others actually take the time out to personally help students. Of the teachers I've had, they all want me to leave with this fabricated-movie-life-changing experience, and though there is nothing wrong with that, they fashion their teachings styles around.

    A few clubs and organizations I recommend are Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, community service involvement, Biology Club, Youth for Environmental Sustainability (Y.E.S.) Club, Students Working for Equal Rights (S.W.E.R.) Club, The Neighborhood Global Initiative(T.G.N.I.), Phi Beta Lamda Honor Society, and so many more available associated to your specific field of study.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are interested in applying to Miami Dade College, also apply for the Honors College at Miami Dade. They have one of the most prestigious Honors Colleges in the nation, and as a personal member of the Honors College, I can tell you it was the best decision I ever made. The Honors College further amplifies all of the amazing opportunities attainable at Miami Dade College with an exclusive social network and the inevitable relationship the Honors College members have with each other.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade College is extremely affordable and the quality of education attainable is superb. The class sizes never exceed over 50 students for the general courses, and all professors are required to have office hours where students can see them in their private office to speak about academics and anything else they may need. Tuition is less expensive than a state university and allows opportunity for a closer student-professor relationship through smaller class sizes. Furthermore, the opportunities for networking, community service, and many forms of further involvement beyond academics is easily accessible through clubs, organizations and honor societies at Miami Dade College.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am definitely enjoying my all around experience here at Miami Dade. There are always a great variety of educational and entertaining events constantly taking place on campus. There is even a specific time at 12 in the afternoon every Wednesday called Activity Hour where no classes over-lap for that hour just for the students and their enjoyment in the many Student Life Association events and fun social programs.

    Am learning a lot

    Every experience from academic to extracurricular activities includes at least 3 of the 10 Learning Outcomes that are required to be incorporated in all of the Miami Dade College events. These outcomes stretch between global and environmental awareness and communication effectiveness that are of great necessity in personal and professional development. At Miami Dade College, I am definitely learning beyond the classroom.

    Pretty much everyone. MDC has a wide variety of different student types that seem to be compatible with the school itself. I enjoy this variety very much, and it's one of the greatest things about MDC; anyone can come and enjoy their experiences here.

    Tips for prospective students

    For all students coming to MDC: enjoy yourself and maintain focus during your time here. College isn't meant to be a distressing experience so long as you keep track of everything you need to handle. I made the mistake of scrambling around my first year because of my lack of knowledge of admission and payments, so you should definitely prepare for everything that MDC can ask for, class or otherwise.

    Bang for the buck

    In-state tuition can help a lot; MDC offers classes that can be as low as $300 each! For someone of low income like myself, this helps a lot considering that money can be lacking and I'd normally never be able to pay for college classes. Backing this up is financial aid procedures that MDC offices are glad to help with, further increasing your options for payment of classes that offer so much for the average student. I pay for college classes to learn and enjoy my time doing so, and that's exactly what I get for a college that offers so many events, clubs, and options concerning your educational experience.

    Am enjoying being here

    MDC offers very comforting environments, backed up by the fact that it has several campuses situated in different locations in Florida. Learning environments are respected and maintained by staff and student participation alike, and facilities such as computer courtyards offer good programs that the average student would find himself or herself in need of. Calm facilities such as libraries maintain a low-key atmosphere for optimum concentration, something I’ve always loved about this school. The staff is always willing to help in anyway; I’ve never had a problem with them in my first year. Upon coming to MDC in my first year I was very surprised at how different the atmosphere was in comparison to high school. Everyone including the students is respectful to each other, akin to the growing professionalism college students should maintain. The best aspect of this college is the vast choices of schedules that you can select from, which help me work around out-of-school situations with conflicting schedules. Facilities are maintained as tidy as possible, and cleanliness is one of my top necessities when choosing a campus. In essence, MDC is as chill as can be, and I’m never irritated at all coming here!

    Am learning a lot

    Most of the professors at MDC show remarkable interest in their students’ academic progression, the likes of which I haven’t seen in my high school years. I come to a specific class with the understanding that all topics discussed are relevant to the subject, and I’m not disappointed with the results. MDC professors show excellent procedures that help students learn, and are people that you most often than not are easily relatable with. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a professor who laughs along with students and offers their own opinions in subject matters, which offer a calming experience for students who want to learn as much as they can. There are times when maybe topics can go out of educational focus, but these instances are just that: instances. Along with their constant reminders to study, learning can be a mind-opening experience thanks to MDC professors, as they support students amidst the uncertainty a subject may have at first glance.

    Any one actually It's so diverse it's not even funny Diverse in personality, nationality, language, just name it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Listen and listen closely. I'm not trying to discourage you but to give you a warning and advice. This may also apply to other colleges. 1) Get your financial aid done in advance. (Can’t believe how many people wait until the last minute - the finaid line is LONG on those days) Make a copy of the taxes that need copy (make 2 in case some how it magically gets lost) Bring all the documents needed in advance (I cannot stress the importance of copies) get advice from the adults at finaid if it looks teenish don’t go to them if it’s a serious question, be patient it'll come in, get a ticket in advance cause the wait time is *fun* (that way you can do other things-but pop in to make sure your number wasn’t called), always check your status online and in person. 2) Get a planner or turn your phone into one with alerts in advance not the day of (for projects and homework assignments) 3) Go to the advisers if you’re not sure what classes to take (don't wanna waste your time now) 4) Pick the right teachers 5) Make sure you make your schedule when it’s time that way you'll get the class time you want and the professor (once again last minute is not the way to go - though it works for some people) 6) Have fun

    Bang for the buck

    Umm there financial aid is stacking the money. But a warning/notice please be a saver more than a spender (or at least save for a rainy day or the future – it may look nice now but what happens when it runs out). But as for the college being worth what you pay for yes it’s a go. Not too much, but the amount you learn and things you get does makes it a yes.

    Am enjoying being here

    Well it all depends on the type of person you are but this college is quit enjoyable. They have a lot of campus activities that goes on. The biggest being the Book Fair which is BIG don’t get it twisted. Plus when you’re in the Wolfson campus you’re in downtown Miami. That means shopping, Bayside, exploring, shops beyond shops, buses that can take you to South Beach or Aventura Mall and more. Plus the campus is attempting to expand so with time I hope it gets better. There’s always an activity or event going on for everything that goes on.

    Am learning a lot

    Oh boy do you learn at this school. Every professor is diverse and has an interesting way of teaching you. I've taken about 10 classes and have learned in every single one of them. The work at times can be challenging but hey you’re in college. If you take the time and focus you can learn a lot.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be scared that MDC is a college or was a community college. MDC is the or better education wise as FIU or any university in Dade County. Apply to MDC and you will get access to multiple campuses no matter where you live. You will also get your classes for a steal and you will pocket mom for you every day college expenses such as books, supplies, gas for you car, rent for you apartment and much more. If you go to FIU you will likely go broke if youre living on your own.

    Bang for the buck

    MDC is definitely the best bang for you buck. Everyone applies to the more expensive Universities in Miami, but you receive the same education by attending Dade if you cannot afford to attend the private universities. FIU is a disaster and thats with experience from my girlfriend who attends. She cannot wait to graduate to get out of there. Yet, everyone who wants to stay local after high school applies and hopes to get in there. I dont see why when Miami Dade College has multiple campuses around Miami Dade County while FIU has two but the main one where all the classes take place only counts as one. MDC professors are extraordinary and they make me want to learn. They motivate me to do something great with my life.

    Great if you are a low income student who needs more time figuring out what you want to do but don't want to take time off of school. Also great for students who have jobs or other responsibilities in Miami and have little time to study.

    Tips for prospective students

    -If you are a social person planning to go to this school make sure you have friends from High School living in Miami. -If you are someone who needs to be academically challenged make sure you apply for the honors college and take high level classes or otherwise you'll find yourself bored in class. Take advantage of the low tuition cost to take the classes that would be more expensive after you transfer out. -Finally MDC takes a lot of your AP classes so make sure you take the tests even if you think you will only get a 3.

    Bang for the buck

    Even with the social and academic gaps that this school has, it is extremely cheap since tuition is inexpensive and there is no room and board since it is a local college. Also a lot of the classes don't really require that you buy a book or have books under the $100 range which ads to it's affordability.

    Did enjoy being here

    It was surely a nice experience as far as a college close to home goes, but since this is a commuter college and most of the people there are busy with their lives, jobs and classes it is not much of a social experience. If you like going to class and then straight home this is the college for you, but if you are like me and need a social environment as well as an academic one this college is not the best choice.

    Did learn a lot

    Miami-Dade is a great school to bridge the transition between High School and College for those who aren't sure what to do next or those who would like some more time to boost their academics. However it is at a fundamental level in it's academics and does not provide a very challenging environment due to the wide range of individuals at the school and the necessity to teach to the lowest common denominator.

    Great for these types of students

    Miami Dade College is great for these types of students: 1.)Students who want to transfer to a particular college. 2.)Students who want to stay closer to home. 3.)Students who want a quality education for a good value. 4.)Students who want to go into the Honors program at Miami Dade College. 5.) Students who want to experience new things while in college. 6.) Students who truly exemplify Miami Dade College's motto of Opportunity does changes everything

    Tips for prospective students

    There are several tips for prospective students: 1.) APPLY, APPLY, APPLY! Miami Dade is the gateway to more schools and opportunities. 2.) DO NOT TRANSFER without the Associate of Arts Degree. It is very important. You save two years worth of tuition, and you can avoid all the hassles of transferring without one. 3.) MEET with YOUR ADVISOR! This is very important. Especially if you want to complete your AA Degree on time. 4.) ALWAYS pay ATTENTION to YOUR G.P.A! The reason why is because if you do not do well in your class, your G.P.A. will drop. College G.P.A is not like a high school G.P.A where if a failing grade was received, your G.P.A. remained at a 3.4. Once YOUR G.P.A. drops, it is very hard to bring it up. There is also a risk of losing Financial Aid due to a low G.P.A. Financial Aid reviews your G.P.A. and credit completion requirements every year for Standards of Academic Progress. 5.) ALWAYS APPLY for FINANCIAL AID EVERY YEAR! It is very important to do so. Without financial aid, your classes WILL BE DROPPED! 6.) ALWAYS keep abreast of the new rules and changes at Miami Dade College. Especially with Financial Aid. Many people tend to forget that just because you are receiving money that does not need to be paid back, does NOT mean that you should go on a Financial Aid SHOPPING SPREE! 7.) Make sure that you REGISTER FOR CLASSES IN ADVANCE! Seats tend to fill up very quickly during peak registration times. 8.) If anything, always know that there are tutoring centers to help you. 9.) Have fun at Miami Dade College! The first two years are important.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade College is truly your bang for the buck! I have spent two years at Miami Dade College debt-free! The Pell Grant covers all of the tuition at Miami Dade College. The education and the cheaper tuition goes well together!

    Am enjoying being here

    I do enjoy being here! I love the location especially! The location of Miami Dade College is GREAT!!! Especially Wolfson Campus! It is located within Downtown Miami. There are shops around the area, stores, and plenty of restaurants. Each day, there is always an event going on at Miami Dade College-Wolfson Campus.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors at Miami Dade College are very knowledgebale in their respective fields. Even though some students may not like their professors, it does not change the quality of learning, which is excellent. True, there are some professors that are not great, but otherwise, always do your research on your potential professor, you may never know when that particular professor will be your friend in college.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for The Honors College. The minimum class size is 25, so you can get individualized attention, you know everyone within the first semester, and you can get into some of the top colleges around; some have been accepted to Mount Holyoke and Georgetown. Plus, they pay for your tuition! I'm in the program this year, and I'm going to college for free!

    Bang for the buck

    Completely affordable education. Tuition for two years = $5000

    Am learning a lot

    You do get to learn so much from the professors here, not just in the classroom, but outside of it as well

    Campus Safety

    Miami Dade College's campus safety is very effective. Great security in ALL campuses.

    Clubs and Activities

    I LOVE Miami Dade College's clubs and activities. I was in many clubs my freshman and sophomore year of college. For example, Student Government Association (SGA) or Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) which is a honor society for a two year college.

    Bang for the buck

    Bang for the buck is an idiom meaning the worth of one's money or exertion. Miami Dade College is definitely a bang for the buck type of school. The college is very affordable, economical & convenient for students, teachers and prospective students.

    What to do for fun

    I joined clubs and started giving back to my community by joining the Student Government Association (SGA). There I was the Vice-President the first year and President the following academic year. I had a lot of fun and memories in SGA and would highly recommend it to anyone who may be interested.

    Food and Dining

    Miami Dade College has a Cafe, so their is food and dining but I never ate there. The food looked great but it was just too expensive.

    Dorm Life

    Miami Dade College does not offer dorms.*

    Academic Rigor

    Before college, students acknowledged course rigor by the quantity of required assignments. The more rigorous classes required the most papers, had the most tests and quizzes than, and demand the most homework. Miami Dade College is academically rigorous, most classes are difficult but there are some electives that are a walk in the park. Just focus and one will be surprised how much one can accomplish.

    Tips for prospective students

    Miami Dade College is not high school nor is it a waste of time. Everything you learn you will eventually use in your life even electives. I am not going to discourage anybody from college but just make sure you (prospective student) are focused and determined to graduate. God speed students!

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College is a great institute of higher education, very affordable for the lower and middle class people. One can get their Associates in Arts Degree but the college also offers Bachelor Programs that is extremely economical. I would rate Miami Dade College an eight out of ten, but academically it is a strong ten.

    Tips for prospective students

    In my opinion,unlike a majority of my peers, there is way more positive to Miami Dade then negative. It may be a small campus, but that doesn't take away from it's vast programs, scholarships, friendships, and career opportunities that it has to offer. If you welcome Miami Dade with open arms, it will do the same for you.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade college is definitely worth your time and patience. The faculty and staff are very welcoming and warm, as well as open-minded and well rounded. Everyday is a completely new day at Miami Dade, because you never know what you will learn or in what way.

    Am enjoying being here

    Miami Dade College,Homestead Campus,is a very lively and exciting college. Everyday there are multiple events being held on and off campus, which allows students to interact with each other in a positive and beneficial matter. The events held at Miami Dade encourages more students to be interdependent and also more aware of community and global events.

    Am learning a lot

    Miami Dade College is on a universal level of education. It is a college that has much to offer in diversity as well as careers. In regard, I am able to not only expand my knowledge in my field of choice, but also learn more about other careers as well. As a result, I am more apt to choosing a career that better suits my interests and challenges my mind.

    It is great for all types of students - young or old. No matter what your situation they can and will work with you (if you are working, short on money, or have begun raising a family).

    Tips for prospective students

    Join the Honors College if you really wish to challenge yourself and make the most of your future. Though it is competitive to be accepted, it is well worth it.

    Bang for the buck

    It is wonderfully cheap for Florida residents. Admissions is also very simple.

    Am enjoying being here

    It is Miami! The location of the Wolfson campus is wonderful because it is in downtown. There are always events occuring for students/young folk.

    Great for these types of students

    International students, people returning to their education after being absent from school for a lengthy period of time, people who cannot afford to attend a four-year university.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just hang on until you are able to transfer, earn good grades, and even if it is a junior college, take it seriously. I would also recommend joining Phi Theta Kappa Academic Honor Society or the Honors College. It looks good on your college resume and can provide aid on your application to transfer to a four-year university. This is just my opinion, though. Someone else could really enjoy attending this school. Or not. Ha ha. Oh, also apply for the FAFSA to receive financial aid, even if you believe you are not eligible.

    Bang for the buck

    Sincerely, the money that you will spend here IS much less than what you would spend at a four-year university, but it is not worth it. What you will benefit from attending a junior college, though, is that you can earn some good scholarships as a transfer student. The fact that you apply as a transfer student with a high GPA and a good academic record (as well as on-campus activities) is viewed as the student's display of determination and effort.

    Am enjoying being here

    I have been rather miserable for my duration at Miami Dade College. I will be transferring to the University of Miami in the fall and I could not be more joyful and relieved.

    Am learning a lot

    Although I cannot deny that I have met some great professors, Miami Dade College is not somewhere you want to be unless you are obligated to be there. The majority of the people in the advisement center are useless and provide no assistance. In addition, a lot of the student employees are incompetent or are not certain of what they are doing. A lot of the staff and faculty (with the exception of some teachers I have had the honor of encountering) seem to be as miserable as the students and do not seem to put any effort or care into what they do. There is also a lack of social diversity and programs are limited. The motive for this is that generally, the same type of students attend this college and also because students all have the same intention: to transfer. This is why they are mainly focused on going into their classes and returning home, leaving little time or desire for social interaction.

    Great for older students, teachers are very interactive and some are very friendly. Also good for students who like to learn and not have to pay as much for it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get your classes early, show up to class, and ask ahead whether or not you need to buy the book.

    Bang for the buck

    For more bang for my buck I would definitely say that MDC was my top choice. Classes are not as expensive and financial aid helps a lot.

    Am enjoying being here

    Overall with flexible schedules and average sized campus' I've enjoyed my time here and have met lots of new people.

    Am learning a lot

    The school environment, overall, is very flexible and like all schools depends on what teacher you get that depends on how much you learn. Basically if you read the material, youll learn alot on your own as well.

    Campus Safety

    as small as it may seem for most students, and most don't realize it, security is a big part. i personally think that miami dade is great when it comes to safety. security is always patrolling, and if you need them to walk with you they will. they have a whole department and you can go there anytime if you need them.

    Bang for the buck

    miami dade is good when it come to its bang for the buck. but unfortunately financial aid isn't the greatest and they are a bit unorganized. i am unable to get any financial aid help, which is why i apply to scholarships.

    What to do for fun

    on the homestead campus they seem to find any reason to have a party. a lot of the time they have games, competitions, and activities for us to do. they also have several clubs. as well as student life which has many games and activities. also sports.

    Food and Dining

    the cafeteria on the homestead campus is small, but the food is pretty good. but the school is located in the heart of downtown homestead so there is a lot to choose from, outside of the school.

    Dorm Life

    there is no dorm life in miami dade at least not at the campus i attend (homestead). but i don't think any of them do.

    Academic Rigor

    i do believe that most of the professors that work for miami dade do care about the students and put time and effort into their jobs.

    Tips for prospective students

    Dont be nervous, and get ready to meet new people! :) Its a great opportunity to meet new people from all over the world, learn new things, and attend extra curricular activities you couldn't be able to attend before. Be active and do something too. Everything is provided for you, so if you need help or service, this is the place to get it! Also, apply for classes early! Dont be lazy and wait for the last minute, you'll get the short end of the stick if you do.

    The tuition costs are amazing in this school compared to other colleges! Anyone is actually capable to be able to pay for their education, and that makes it so much easier now that many are going through financial troubles. I don't receive financial aid, so all my classes I managed to pay on my own, and I don't even have a job! If you're really tight on money, I definitely suggest taking classes here. You get the same education for a cheaper price :)

I learned what I couldn't understand in High School, and the aides that were always available provided me with great tips.

    The college is perfect for students who want to stay in Miami for the first two years of college. I do not recommend getting loans to get your associates degree. Miami Dade is a great way to get your AA degree at a cheap price without loans. It is also a great place for students who did not do good in high school and cannot get in any prestigious colleges. This college accepts any students. There are also many people that go to Miami Dade to get small degrees like nursing, Phlebotomy, dental assistant. This is a great place to get a small degree if you missed out on your college years.

    I always recommend the Honors College in Miami Dade to anyone I talk to. For people who like to challenge themselves and want to learn a lot, this is a great program. There are certain requirements to get in, but it is a great shot. Not only do you have the advantage of getting smaller classes, but the program pays for your classes, books, and gives you a stipend on top of that. The program makes your stay at the college more enjoyable because you spend your time with a small elite group of students the whole time. It is like a family. Students also participate in many community service events, and get the advantage of having an advisor that can help you at any time. Students in this program also gain experience on how to apply to scholorships or colleges because they take leadership classes every semester. Apart from all this, students also have opportunities like educational trips. These trips include Costa Rica, Salzburg Austria, Tennessee, and Washingtion DC. Prospective students should join.

    Bang for the buck

    Not only is the school good, but the financial aid is incredible. The creator of Miami Dade College created this community college for everyone can get an affordable education. The classes here are the cheapest you can get and they are worth it. Around 80% of the college gets financial aid and the rest are able to afford it because it is has economical prices. If you want a more challenging course that pays for your classes if you expected family contribution is high, I suggest joining the Honors College. It is a rigorous program, but it pays for your classes.

    Am enjoying being here

    I really enjoy being part of the Miami Dade College family. I feel like everyone gets along and everyone collaborates together to make the college a better place. Clubs and honor societies make my time at the college more enjoyable because you meet people and are able to help the community while having fun. I enjoy the fact that I do not feel alone. Not only do have friends, but teachers and advisors are very welcoming and they make you feel like family. I am 100% glad that I went to this college.

    Am learning a lot

    At this community college, I am learning a wide range of subjects. Not only am I learning for my major, but I am getting a little bit of every subject, this makes me a cultured individual. The professors at the college are very helpful outside class, they are interested in the students progress as well as the subject matter. The work load depends on the major, but you learn a lot from it, it is not busy work. I am very content with the progress in my learning in the past year in Miami Dade College.

    Do not miss out on your passions. If non-major related classes are available or non-credit are available that offer skills for your long life dream either wait until after graduation of the AA or take in the summer term where its laid back.

    Tips for prospective students

    A little prep for prospective students fall under finances, time management, and networking. First with finances, it is best to ALWAYS have a buscard if you do not drive. Find fellow students in the same major as you and ask about books. If food is a problem, LEARN TO COOK & CARRY IT FROM HOME! Last, get a One Card & SAVE YOUR REFUND MONEY. With time management, use every resource, weblink, and lab time provided during a semester. Try not to stretch an assignment out to make it to that event of the year - you will regret it with the cramming of work afterwards. Do not be afraid to say I have to go now to a friend in the middle of a conversation - think of your grade always! Last is networking. Whatever your professor suggests for the class for personal growth - Test it! If it doesn't help leave it, simple! same goes for a classmate!

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade is very reasonable when compared to neighboring institutions and yet still will go far as to reveal third party options for your educational experience to be a worhtwhile one. Depending on your financial status, one can truly accept the wide variety of prices tagged to books, food, rentals, accesories, and events. I always look forward to the first two motnths of every semester where the Student Life Dept opens up activitites & refreshments to the student body which is a good welcome to the students.

    Am enjoying being here

    From the first day of college for me, I was so fascinated with the different lounges they have to read, hosts study meetings and recreation. Being a musician, there is more than enough space to practice and jam out with my friends after or in between classes.

    In every class you enter the teacher provides resources along with their syllabus ensuring a better of the understanding of the course material. I can attest to their availability to discuss the different subjects that are covered in semester period and how thorough they are presented.

    Students looking for affordable schools Hardworking Students that may need financial aid Offer dozens of career options Want an AA degree Want to do general courses among other within two years

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely learn to pick your own classes because counselors cant always pick what best for you. You can easy pick your schedule online and just check your teachers out on ratemyprofessors.com to make sure you wont lose your money or time on bad teachers. Join clubs for special activities and enjoy the free food given away. Of course apply for financial aid, study so you can learn, and have fun after all its collage.

    Bang for the buck

    Compared to many universities paying about three to four hundred per class and a few hundreds if even that on books is very worth it. i believe for general courses we are learning just about the same thing we would be paying four to five times as much for in a big universities. Also if you have financial aid like everyone i know you'll pretty much be going to school for free.

    Am enjoying being here

    I do enjoy it there, i haven't had nor seen any trouble, many of the people are friendly and theirs a diverse group of people. On Wednesday i believe they give free food to students and they have many clubs for people to join if they are interested. Although they closed one gym to open another much better one, that i have wanted to go to but has been close for month after they posted they would open it. i still enjoy being there with my friends.

    Am learning a lot

    MDC teaches very well if the right teacher is taken. As a new student fresh out of high school i didn't know much about picking teachers or student review sites, but with time i learned about them and thus was able to select teachers that help me learn much more than i would have otherwise. So far i have learned many thing to help me as i continue the process of obtaining my degree and with one semester left i believe ill be ready for higher education with what I've learned so far.

    If staying close to home and tuition are one of your main concerns, MDC is a great place to start. It is very convenient because there are many campuses to choose from, meeting new people is no problem because MDC is very diverse, you actually learn, and most importantly you tuition is very affordable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Although MDC doesn't have an application deadline, it does have a financial aid deadline. When you apply to MDC, also apply to MDC Honors College because it is a GREAT opportunity for incoming freshmen and one of the BEST decisions a college student can make. Also, DO NOT procastinate when registering for classes because they do fill up quick.

    Bang for the buck

    MDC is one of the best colleges in South Florida especially when it comes to tuition. It is VERY affordable compared to other public and private universities. You can always transfer to a public or private university after you get your associates degree. MDC is a great place to start because you will save at least half of what you would have paid for if you attended a public or private university in the first place.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am enjoying it here because you get to meet several people from diverse backgrounds just like any other university. There may not be as much activities going on like at FIU or FSU because MDC is a small college but MDC students still enjoy the same sports and activities among other things.

    Am learning a lot

    I am actually learning more than I did in high school. Professors at MDC come from diverse backgrounds and have worked in their field for several years which makes it even more interesting because you can learn from real life situations, not just from the book. They actually teach you the material and are concerned with your progress.

    You are going to enjoy and get used to your campus or probably various campuses depending where you take your classes. This a community college so chances are you'll already know some people from your high school days or even before that.

    The amount isn't a lot compared to other universities that just love to pile on the money for every credit and with financial aide, it should help pay off a big chunk.

    I'm in the Honors College at the North Campus. They pay for everything, but don't expect any rigor academically. However, for what they lack in challenge, they make up for it with a variety of opportunities to transfer to upper division universities after your first two years.

    Tips for prospective students

    Study, seriously. I read a ton of study reviews from students and thought it was no big deal until my first class. Yes study, if you plan to pass the class. Oh and keep up with your financial aid, papers, and documents. Trust me, no one is on you about the problems that you have without them telling you.

    Bang for the buck

    Ok, college isn't cheap. People thinkn that Dade is cheap; however, it is reasonable for 4 classes at about 1200 (not books included). Sure other schools are charging a fortune for a class, but it is enough to at least get started and save up for other terms and transfering schools.

    Am enjoying being here

    I was originally going to another university until my financial aid was taken away so I ended up at Miami Dade. It really isnt that bad as other students say. You're there to study and continue off to another university to progress at what you want as a career and thats the way I look at it. As long as you work hard and do what you have to do, you'll be graduating before you know it.

    Am learning a lot

    I really am learning a lot at Dade. Of course, you cannot expect to have things easy, so study the materail constantly, review your notes, take usefull notes, and don't be affriad to ask questions (it'll help with studying). I'm a science nerd so I do pay attention so I don't mind studying, but this term I'm taking American History, which I don't like at all so I have to manage study time with work.

    It would be wise to file your financial aid as early as possible to avoid any headaches and possibly have your classes dropped. Take a trip to the campus just to visit and to get a feel for the campus; it makes life a lot easier when you are not trying to find where everything is on the first day. BE ORGANIZED.

    It is a quality university education for a reduced price. One class here is worth two in another university, but the quality of professors makes it affordable.

    There are wwwaaaayyy too many things to do on this campus. I won't try to name the clubs but if you want to do energetic-frisbee-throwing-while-listening-to-Bon-Jovi, there is probably a club out there somewhere.

    Food and Dining

    Surprisingly the cafeteria has good food. They always make it to order and it has flavor. The Koffeehouse has the typical Hispanic breakfast items, and they are done so well that it is worth the small walk there.

    Academic Rigor

    Do not let deadlines sneak up on you. Most professors will tell you what assignments you need to and when they are due, but some you have to ask because they are seeing where the course is headed. Be sure to talk to the professors you will take and ask advisors which professor is worth it for whichever class you need to take. This is college, and the last thing you want is to be taking Calculus with a professor who can not pronounce the word Math.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to succeed in this college you have to put in the time and effort. I know what it is like to have a job and be going to school at the same time, but you have to be sure to prioritize. The biggest mistake you will make is taking a backseat to your education because you think that this college is easy. You will be surprised at the quality of education you get here.

    Campus Safety

    the campus safety is decent since our school is small. there is a cop or a security guard at every building.

    Great for these types of students

    we have a good nursing and vocational programs as well as 4 different bachelor's degrees. i'd say dental hygiene, radiology,photography and many other as degrees.

    Bang for the buck

    the classes are very reasonably priced as well as the books but i do believe all access codes should be much cheaper. the new parking fees are extremely radical and should not be forced upon students because not everyone drives to school. the parking fees are also highly against our budgets.

    What to do for fun

    there is a pool and various diving boards, a gym, a library, and a computer courtyard. if you are in a club or any service learning project there are separate places you can go after class to hang out.

    Food and Dining

    there needs to be more of a variety of places to eat on campus. the cafeteria and the koffeehouse are too expensive for students, especially with the minimum to use a credit card.

    Dorm Life

    there are no dorms for this college.

    Academic Rigor

    the classes are not hard, you just need to pay attention and do all of your work. teachers are usually understanding and give you extra chances to make up any work. the forgiveness grading policy is helpful if you ever had to repeat a course.

    Tips for prospective students

    all incoming students should ask as many questions as possible to completely understand how everything works. the staff is not very helpful so take it upon yourself to get things done. the classes are not that difficult to pass so do not worry you will be fine.

    In three sentences

    miami-dade is a well structured school. this school should paint the buildings and make it a more upbeat place to be. the teachers are passionate and i learn a lot in all of my classes.

    if you are hankering for a bag of chips or a soda from a vending machine, then you’ll be happy with the food choices at mdc. they do serve hot plates which are quite good, that is, if you can make it before the kitchen closes which for those of us who work mornings is highly unlikely. i recommend you eat before getting on campus or risk hearing you rumbling stomach over the voice of your professor.

    there are no dorms at miami dade college. nevertheless, mdc offers the experience of “college life” without the high cost of dorm living expenses. choose from an array of clubs and organizations and you’ll soon feel like you have a home away from home with your new classmates and friends.

    Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    You must study for every subject. Like everything in life, if you're not prepared, then it is going to be a challenge. The academic rigor at my school mostly relies on the professor's discretion. However Science and Math classes are no joke.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for prospective students: 1.Decided on area of study or interest. 2. Study and take the ACT (avoid the CPT if possible) 3. Never throw away any notes from high school especially Math and Reading notes; most likely you will end up needing it. 4. Find a part time job the works around your school schedule. 5. Be patient, Miami Dade has many students and everyone has a turn. 6. Have fun and enjoy learning.

    Miami Dade College, is affordable, the professors are excellent most the time. The hours are flexible, the people are polite, there are a variety of people so it will be hard not to fit in. Everyone is just so helpful, if someone sees that your lost, no worries someone will help (from experience).

    What to do for fun

    There is a gym available for students, it use to be free but now its $10 per semester. There's also a pool in which you pay a little extra at the gym to be able to use it. There's the coffee house pool table which has about 3 or 4 tables. You can also sign up for service- learning and get informed whenever their is a music concert, a play of some type at school.

    Food and Dining

    The coffee shop in the Kendall Campus is pretty good they sell coffee of course, and pastelitos and sandwiches. There is also a pool table in the back and a lot of seating, although it is overpriced. The food in the cafeteria is rather good especially the home style chicken sandwich but once again overpriced. So try not to eat at school everyday.

    Academic Rigor

    Overall, the professors in Miami Dade are well educated and if your lucky enough you meet that one professor who could really expand your horizons and really tell you the truth about things. Hence, professor Sandra Castillo who informed us about the foods we put into our bodies, YIKES.

    Tips for prospective students

    Try not to smoke in the Kendall campus, it is prohibited inside the campus even though people still do it; no one wants to go to class smelling like a tobacco shop. Also, I suggest that you come at least an hour early to the campus because parking can be difficult during 8am- 9am.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is very emphasized in all campuses. There are emergency poles in the parking lots and you can always call public safety for assistance. As a woman I know how important staying safe is and I can promise you will always feel taken care of.

    Greek Life

    There are no sororities or fraternities at Miami Dade College. There is Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, which requires over a 3.5 GPA and it helps students with academics when transferring and also provides scholarships.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a plethora of extracurricular activities and clubs to join. For instance I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa and Students Working for Equal Rights. Most clubs and organizations have activities and meetings where you can network with people who have the same interests. Also, many speakers from all places visit the school. From Holocaust survivors, to Oxford Professors, to Opera singers, everyone has something to teach.

    Great for these types of students

    This is a great option for people who work and have other financial obligations. Also, this is a commuter school. There are no dorms. Students live at home and drive to school; which is convenient because if you don't have classes every day, you can just study in the comfort of your own home. It is great for those looking for transferring later into another institution, or just to take classes for personal enrichment.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    All students are always nice and willing to help, something I have noticed is that no matter how far you are, the person in front of you will always keep the door open for you. There are tennis courts and a nice cafeteria that seems as if it was inside a hole, which is called the shark tank because our mascot is a shark.

    Bang for the buck

    You can not find a better deal than Miami Dade College. The best professors for the best value. This is a great option for people who work and have other financial obligations. This school also offers financial aid to those who apply for FAFSA and different scholarships for different majors.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria and Koffee House offer a great variety of dishes. From chips to sushi. There is a varied salad bar, and every day (except Sundays) the chef has a special dish. The food in the Koffee House is more expensive but it is definitely a must try.

    This is a commuter school. There are no dorms. Students live at home and drive to school; which is convenient because if you don't have classes every day, you can just study in the comfort of your own home.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor depends on the major. For example, science majors have to take classes like Organic Chemistry and Physics will demand more practice and time than World History. Yet, there is a math lab where you can obtain tutoring services of provide services to other students as well, if you feel competent in the subject. I am a student in the Honors Program, so my courses are more rigorous, but it pays off in the end. I just got into University of Miami and Binghamton University in New York.

    Tips for prospective students

    An important tip for prospective students is to make sure that you know the classes you need and the amount of credits required for your program. Most students transfer so it is important that if you plan to attend another institution after, know the credits that will transfer and keep a record of the requisites.

    Campus Safety

    In all the time I've lived near Miami Dade College, plus the years that I've attended the school, nothing serious ever came up. We do, however, live in a touristic city. So as long as you're not wandering off late at night alone, you'll be safe.

    Greek Life

    We don't have one. The closest thing we get to a Greek Life is Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), which is the honor society. In order to join you must have a 3.5 GPA. Which by the way, I encourage you to join. After graduating from the college and being a member of PTK, you will be most likely receiving some sort of scholarship for your academic accomplishments. Plus, PTK does events all year long, and even travels! It's a good deal.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are activities and clubs of every kind here at MDC. From the arts, to the sciences, to law. It's a great idea to join SAPB and/or SGA though. The first one is the in charge of creating most events that happen on campus, and the second one is great if you want to make the campus a better place by implementing laws, regualtions, etc. In any case, amongst the huge variety of clubs we have on each campus, if you can't find a club you're interested in, you can always create one as long as you have 5 people to participate with you.

    Great for these types of students

    MDC is great for anyone who wants to get a great education, have all the perks of a large college, yet is short on the money, or just simply doesn't want to pay so much for an education. Whichever your social status may be though, you'll find something made especially for you.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    All of our 8 campuses have different unique events and locations. It will be up to you to discover them, or even create one yourself!

    Bang for the buck

    Again, the tution is incredibly cheap - less than $80 per credit for in-state students, and less than $300 per credit for out-of-state students. In all it turns out to around $1,300 for in-state per semester, and $2,500 for out-of-state per semester. Cheap, right? And the education you will be getting here is far more than what you'll pay for. Great courses, great professors, great books.

    What to do for fun

    Near every campus there are tons of things to do. From going to the beach, to a water park, to bowling, to ice skating, there's always something. Plus, we have the American Airlines Arena, The Adrienne Arsht Center, and many more places right next to Wolfson Campus that provide you with plays, concerts, movies, shows, basketball games, and more! Everything is right at your fingertips.

    Food and Dining

    Since we don't have dorms, we don't have the normal cafeteria like most other colleges and universities do. But we do have Cafe/Snack bars in every campus that are always serving something new. And since our student body is so diverse, they change their menus according to different countries' cooking style. However, you will still always find your simple/classic food like pizza, snack wraps, and more. Additionally, if you attend Wolfson Campus (which is in Downtown) you'll be able to experience dozens more restaurants of any culture, and if you're up for some relax time, stop by Bayside which is a block away and enjoy the bay, the seagulls, and the wonderful ocean breeze! Talk about a dining experience!

    Dorm Life

    We don't have dorms, that's one of the reasons why the tuition is so cheap. Since I have to rate the dorm life though, I'll give it a 5 star since you'll most probably be living in the comfort of your own house!

    Academic Rigor

    College life is not high school anymore. Time for exuses are over, and you won't have a professor telling you what to do all the time. For this, the academic rigor is fairly high. But if you're the kind of student that doesn't like to miss classes, writes good notes, and are able to ask the professor questions when in doubt, you'll get your A. The Faculty are very helpful and will answer any question.

    Tips for prospective students

    Since it's such a large college, with over 174,000 students throughout 8 campuses, it's pretty easy to get overwhelmed. In order to avoid this, join a club or the SGA. You will meet new people, make new friends, and go to events and places that will always keep your interest.

    In three sentences

    Beautiful campuses, amazing professors, extremely diverse student body, and the most value of education you'll get for your money. Seriously, it's ridiculously cheap for the great education they provide.

    Miami Dade College is great for freshman and undergraduate students looking to get their Associates or Bachelors degrees.

There may be a few more, but these are the programs that I've seen and heard the most of.

    Miami Dade College started as a Community College, so the classes they offer aren't extremely difficult. That doesn't mean they are easy either. You have to keep up to date on your assignments and study your notes at least once weekly for the average class to make an excellent grade.

    Tips for prospective students

    Sign up for classes as soon as the last semester ends or they fill up quickly. Make sure to triple check that all your paperwork is in and verified. Keep on top of your Tuition and Financial Aid, the wait for loans is long and if you get behind you may end up skipping a semester to make up the payments.

    In three sentences

    Wide range of campuses and majors. Many interesting events and places both on campus and nearby. If you are a dedicated student, most classes aren't difficult and the teachers make it fun to learn.

    Students who live in Miami or want to save money while still progressing towards their bachelor's degree should try Miami Dade College. The Honors College in MDC is also a very prestigious program for only the best and most hard-working students. Those students receive many benefits from being in the Honors College, from have free tuition to being accepted into the top rated universities in the nation. If you want to go far, the Honors College is the perfect starting point.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade College really is less expensive than the average college or university. What is really great is that if someone has a lot of scholarships (like many do at MDC), they get refunded the money that was not used for their tuition. So, you get money back AND you get the same classes - it's a win-win situation.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging but it is attainable to receive an A. They also provide abundant opportunities for learning and student growth. None of the classes are a waste of time because you always learn something important from each one.

    Tips for prospective students

    I urge prospective students to get the financial aid information straightened out quickly, so you can select the courses you want before they run out of space. I also suggest to try out different time schedules throughout your time at MDC, so you can accurately decide which time is right for your lifestyle.

    Tips for prospective students

    if you can pick your classes online, do that. do not go to advisement. if you need an adviser, go to your major's department office and find advisement there. they can help you the best and actually know what their talking about. the less you need to deal with actual people who run the school, the better off you are with a hassle free college experience. oh, and don't bother calling the school either, you just get a run around and end up no where after a few hours.

    In three sentences

    Most professors are great here. Advisement and the people running the school is terrible. Great campuses.

    Campus Safety

    In earlier years the security/ safety of the alumni was a small issue, but the problem has been taken care of with the amount of security officers on campus being increased almost two times.

    Campus Safety

    There are many security guards and you'll always see them around campus, you do feel safe on campus. However, there is always reason to be cautious.

    Greek Life

    The school does have a greek sorority/fraternity, but they do not have a greek house and it might be combined.

    Clubs and Activities

    One of the great clubs in Miami-Dade is SGA and each campus has their own committee. There various language clubs and others based on faith and majors. The north campus recently built a film theater where they would showcase students film and others.

    Great for these types of students

    One event that is very unique to Miami-Dade is the Cinema Al fresco which is a joint project with the Film and Music department. The film students edit pieces of familiar movies while the orchestra plays the corresponding soundtrack live - outside - as the film is projected on the screen.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami-Dade is very much worth it and they are always willing to help students pay for school and offer work/study programs and scholarships.

    Miami-Dade offers many events and often hosts concerts for their music program and other invited speakers such as the Vagina Monologues. There are many clubs to choose from and get involved in, if there isn't one that suits you there are ways for students to initiate new ones.

    Food and Dining

    Most campuses, if not all have some sort of cafe or place to order food from. The students work there and it is great for students to hang around campus and study or socialize.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms in Miami-Dade as it is a junior college

    Academic Rigor

    Miami-Dade isn't too excessive, it's mostly based on the teacher's way of handling the course. Some demand more reading and essay writing while others depend on class participation. Classes are passable, it is up to the student how much they want to apply themselves.

    Tips for prospective students

    Understand your pace and pick a campus that is close to you so you can first adjust to the college environment. Plan ahead, take advantage of the counselors talk to professors about the different majors.

    Miami Dade College is very big and several campus' to choose from which is great if you want to change your pace. It allows students many options and different teachers it's a great opportunity for those who aren't really sure what they want to study.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep track of the number of credits you have taken, especially if you plan to change majors. Classes required for your specific major are the best place to meet new friends with common interests.

    this school is great for the type of students who can't afford to the brand name colleges like Fiu, Columbia, or even Harvard. It gives them a pretty head start at a place where you get more bang for your bucks. it's mor efor the students who will pay the minimum and excel in their education because they notice they were given an actual opportunity for Education in return for better prospects in the future.

    If you attend Kendall Campus you have a variety of activities. You can go swimming at the poo, practice by yourself tennis with the wall, or play with a friend You can go to the computer courtyarc or hang out with your friends at the computer courtyard.,

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining all depends on which type of Miami Dade Community College Campus you go to. Why? Simple. Some campuses like Kendall campus are large and have more students, so they in return have more money for a larger variety of foods like pizza and fancier entrees. The food court at InterAmerican Campus has fewerser students, not a lot of money; therefore, the food isn't top notch.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms it's cosidered a community college. Your going to find mostly Miami-Dade County's residents.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are not easy but they have professors who will take some pretty good class notes and give pretty good class lectures. It's not Harvard or anythign like that so the syllabus itself is the pathway to success in getting an A.

    Study. Study for a better future. A better future will give you a better job. A better job will get you the money you deserve.

    Study Study Study!!!! You will find that although studying may not have been fun before at MDC it is a little less stressful. It has a less intimidating environment and provides you with the best possible atmosphere to get your work done. There are many clubs on campus too that are loads of fun to participate in.

    Food and Dining

    There are food places around the campuses as well as little places inside to accommodate students.

    Campus Safety

    I always feel safe at Miami Dade, there are always officers all over campus monitoring the movement of students. They are very friendly, and most will say hello and chat!

    What to do for fun

    Miami Dade is filled to the brim with different kinds of clubs to keep your head buzzing. From dance to theatre to technology and to food, Dade has a variety of things to do for a student who wants to get involved. Also, Dade has random events where bands play in the courtyard, comedians come to the cafeteria, and dancers make flash mobs!

    Food and Dining

    The rush in-between classes can be a little rough, specifically if you have under ten minutes to walk from point 'A' to point 'B'. Being a student at Miami Dade for a year, I've got to say that I have never had to wait in line for over 3-5 minutes for any kind of food (a part from lunch time, that is!). The food is great, specially if it's a warm tasty treat!

    Dorm Life

    There aren't any dorms (to my knowledge) at Miami Dade, but, there are plenty of houses/apartments nearby that could be easy for those who don't have a car to commute to and from school.

    Academic Rigor

    I rated the academic rigor as four stars just because this is a college, and who said college would be easy? The classes may get tough, but if you are willing to study, do your homework, and attend class, you should be able to pass any academic bump in the road.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're new, setting foot at Miami Dade can be a tad overwhelming - the school is gigantic! Though the enormous campus may mislead you, anyone and everyone on campus is willing to help you search for a class... I was even helped walk to one! Just be friendly!

    In three sentences

    Though many say going to a College instead of straight to a University is just someone 'being lazy', I beg to differ. At Miami Dade I feel like a prized student, not just a number. This is a great school, with achieving academics; a true 'A' rated school!

    Security personnel are plentiful, but so is traffic. The campuses are located in highly urban areas.

    Clubs and Activities

    Most of the students work and have little time for extracurricular activities.

    Great for these types of students

    Those with jobs, needing a flexible schedule. Those willing to sacrifice prestige for reasonable tuition. Those without jobs, looking to maximize their dollar. Those looking to get an associate's degree and enter the work force quickly.

    What to do for fun

    This is Miami. There's plenty. But try to stay away from the activity most popular in this city: partying. It will only become a (huge) distraction.

    Food and Dining

    Ok, better on larger campuses such as Kendall. Most campuses are located in urban areas, so dining options mostly exist off-campus.

    Dorm Life

    Nonexistent, from what I can tell. This is a community college, and it caters to commuting students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Try to get a feel for professors from other students who have taken a class you are considering. Some professors are great, but a few are mediocre. Don't get caught up in the Miami Beach mentality. Live within your means; because if you don't, you may have to spend too much time working to pay for rent and not have enough left over for studies.

    Great for these types of students

    As a current Music Business major at Miami Dade College (North), it's such a great atmosphere filled with creativity in Building 5. There are frequent concerts, recitals, piano and voice forums held in the Fall and Spring semesters. One may even hear random singing and/or guitar playing by music majors/students. For those who enjoy being surrounded by other bold, creative minds and hearts, that may be a great place to sit and enjoy!

    Bang for the buck

    Try to find other students at the college who have the textbooks you('ll) need. Consider possible 'book swaps' - switching books from a class you've completed with a friend who is taking that class next, and vice versa - can save you money on textbook purchases. I would suggest going to different departments on campus and see if they can refer you to anyone selling a textbook (e.g., if you need a business book, try visiting the Business Department). If they cannot help you with books, maybe they can offer other advice or relay you to a student they know selling their book. Besides book swaps, you could look for and buy Used Textbooks for your classes. Buying textbooks from online can also help if the price is right. As a college student, you have to look for deals and bargains everywhere. Saving money is key, and practicing that from now will help a lot in your future.

    Food and Dining

    There is a cafe on campus, but I have yet to purchase anything from there. It is very expensive (to me), but there are students who buy from them. Miami Dade's North Campus is positioned right on NW 27th Avenue and 119th Street - with a Wendy's adjacent to the college, and other small restaurants and eateries nearby. MDC's Wolfson Campus is located in the heart of Downtown Miami and is surrounded by small mom & pop restaurants as well as nationally known restaurants such as Quizno's, Subway, McDonalds, etc. (all accessible by the Metromover station).

    Dorm Life

    In my opinion, this is the only 'flaw' of MDC - the lack of dormitory living. Then again, because of the high rate of students likely to attend Miami Dade College after high school graduation, I think the absence of dorms is best. A lot of students haven't adapted to the 'real world mentality' after high school. Those two years at Miami Dade can allow an MDC student to go to school and (likely) live at home (more time to mature).

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep your head on straight. When attending Miami Dade College, don't lose yourself in the new freedoms of being a college student - choosing your own classes and the times YOU feel like attending, being able to eat lunch (or not eat lunch) at times/places you desire; being able to select the professor you prefer (on some occasions); and etc. Don't get caught up in socializing, but instead study hard and use this platform of a local College to prepare you for when you transfer. Adapting good study habits from now will help you greatly when you graduate and receive your AA or AS degree, and move forward in your life. It's an approximated two years, but well worth it and a great experience!

    Good stepping ground.

    What to do for fun

    There are many different ways to have fun at school while going for a serious cause. Miami Dade College offers a very large pool, tennis courses, instrument courses, etc. How you see and take these courses are up to you. As for me, I am looking forward to take as many as I can possibly take just for fun!

    Food and Dining

    I usually go to Miami Dade College after work. The times I have been there in the morning or afternoon hours, I understand there is a cafeteria that a lot of the students benefit from. Definitely a plus!

    Dorm Life

    I apologize, I cannot provide any comments as I live and work close to many of the campuses offered by Miami Dade College.

    Academic Rigor

    Miami Dade College gives you the option to take the classes you need and the classes you must take by providing test assessments where you prove how capable/knowledgeable you are.

    Tips for prospective students

    One very important key is to be on top of what you want and need from school/College. The advisement department can surely guide on if you ask the right questions. To ensure getting the perfect or ideal schedule, always register on time. Take care of your financial aid needs as soon as you can to avoid any delays and cancellation/dropping off your credits which will haunt you down after a few years.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College offers a variety of courses, online and in-class, at very convenient schedules for those who have full-time jobs. Aside from this great advantage, the College has different campuses to choose depending on your location, especially for those who have to go either before or after work. The third but definitely not the least, is that MDC offers the cheapest courses for the same quality of education other Universities offer... unbeatable!

    What there is to do for fun is attend their programs they have for you. It depends what fun means to you, so if that involves studying then there is a nice library in your reach. Fun may include supporting the schools different sports team.

    Campus Safety

    the wolfson campus is every safe, there may be a bum or two from time to time but there are security on every building on the campus. i feel very safe when i go to class from building to building.

    Bang for the buck

    for the classes; the prices are high, but you get what you pay for. but i can not say the same when it comes to buying books in the book store, they are a rip off.

    What to do for fun

    not much to do, only on certain day but it is not activities, it is more like stores to shop. no activities that actually make you want to stay on campus.

    Food and Dining

    I can not complain about the food, but then again i am only talking about the food in wolfson campus . i can not speak for the other campuses because i have never gone to any of them.

    Dorm Life

    no dorms

    Academic Rigor

    needs more activities through out the day.

    Tips for prospective students

    Miami Dade is not high school, you will have to learn the materials if you want to succeed in your career path. do not slack off because in the end you will regret it, Believe me you will. College isn't for everyone and you will soon see that; the further you go, you will see there will be less of the students that go to school and do nothing in class and more of the students that will actually want to learn to become successful in their life. Do not feel discouraged, try to focus on your goal and you will be fine.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade is doing a great job in the academics. Although if i would suggest is that more activities through out the day to make going to college more interesting. Other than that, keep up the good work in educating the students in Miami Dade college.

    Campus Safety

    Miami Dade College promotes campus safety through having security guards constantly drive around the parking lots around the campus checking to make sure everyone parked at the campus has a valid school decal and that's how they keep track of who is really a student or faculty at the college. They also have security on rollers on campus to make sure that there is no fights or problems among students.

    Greek Life

    Miami Dade College does offer Fraternities and Sororities. Usually students that join are those students who aim to have the best grades and the highest GPA and plan on transferring to a out of state institution or maybe a renowned institution.

    Clubs and Activities

    Miami Dade College has great clubs such as student government and student life where students can show their school spirit and be the voice for the other students in general who attend the college to make sure decisions being made are reflected on what the students feel about a subject or a new regulation. They also have a newspaper called the falcon times which is always covering events on and off the campus and writing about any changes, news, and events taking place. Also, they have axis magazine which is also a club and it is for visual art students who enjoy drawing, writing, photography as well as a Graphic Design club for students with that major. They also have clubs for students from Haiti and other parts of the world.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who want to earn a degree but attend college on a budget. Students who are going to transfer to another higher education institution. Students that are from different countries because Miami Dade College is a very diverse college.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Miami Dade College usually holds workshops and seminars to give students the opportunity to learn more about journalism and ask questions to famous local journalists. I remember once they had a workshop for students to learn about mosquitoes, which is interesting but it was a very unusual tradition.

    Bang for the buck

    One thing that is definitely true about Miami Dade College is that tuition and books are much cheaper than all the other schools. Classes can cost $300-$400 at Miami Dade College and in other schools it would be double and possibly even triple that. Another good thing about Miami Dade College is that if you do not want to buy a brand new book which can range from $100 and up then you have the option of renting and one can save about 30-40% and maybe even more depending on the subject.

    What to do for fun

    At Miami Dade College what I would say to go do for fun would be to go watch a play or visit the art gallery. About each month Miami Dade College celebrates different things and has cultural events that are free and really fun. You meet diverse people, get to eat free delicious food, hear some music and spoken poetry, see proud students dance and represent where they are from and their customs whether they are from Haiti, the Bahamas, or South America. Students can also do crafts and take photos with their friends. Miami Dade College is always celebrating diversity which is one thing I really appreciate and love.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Miami Dade College is excellent. They offer breakfast, lunch, and snack items. They have a cafe and a cafeteria where they have a fresh salad bar with endless toppings. They have a wrap station and they have other stations where they prepare different types of cuisines and dishes like Cuban, Asian , Mexican, American, Italian, etc. They have excellent meal deals for no more than $6 for those students with a tighter budget or who just like the daily special. I would rate the food a 4 out of 5.

    Dorm Life

    Miami Dade College sadly does not have dorms. I rate the dorm life a 1 out of 5 because of the unavailability.

    Academic Rigor

    Miami Dade College is the largest college in the nation and offers more than 300 areas of study and students can earn both an Associate and Bachelors degree and their focus is on providing academic excellence for their students. It was actually voted the second best of all college and universities by WIRED. Speaking from experience I have done really well academically because the few great teachers that I had motivated me and helped me when I didn't do well on an assignment in order to improve on the next. I rate the academic rigor a 3 out of 5.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would recommend students to read reviews and talk to other students who have previously taken a professor and ask how the professor is and his teaching style before registering for classes. Also, I would recommend to go see an advisor constantly because testing and information regarding graduation, credits, and classes being offered on a specific semester are always changing. The problem is that people wait too long to ask about these things and that's why many students don't graduate in time and are still attending the college trying to earn an Associate's.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College (north campus) has some very good teachers and tutors but the number is limited. Miami Dade College needs to improve in it's overall services and should provide students with more availability for classes and more teachers. I rate Miami Dade College overall a 2 out of 5.

    Campus Safety

    There is security everywhere to help new students when they are lost and to overlook the student parking lot.

    Bang for the buck

    Once again, Miami Dade College is the best school to attend, especially if you want to get through your associates while spending the least possible and receiving the best education possible.

    What to do for fun

    This college provides many clubs and sports ranging from your preferred major to your favorite high school sport you played. Students here are engrossed in activities.

    Food and Dining

    The Kendall college campus is walking distance away from many food restaurants and diners. But why go off campus when there is plenty to eat inside the school. There is a cafe and a large cafeteria where students can relax, mingle with friends, or study for their classes. The food is quite delicious and healthy.

    Dorm Life

    Miami Dade College does not have dorms like universities do. Although, they do have apartments right next to the campus. This school is not a permanent home, but it is a foundation students will build upon in order to move forward to their careers through universities centralizing on their majors.

    Academic Rigor

    Each instructor not only gives the material an individual student needs to know for that class, but they teach and make students understand exactly what and why they are learning that subject. Each and every teacher has office hours for one-on-one time with their students just in case there is any confusion with the material. Education is not only made easy but it is also made to be fun so that students do not give up.

    Tips for prospective students

    Miami Dade College is the perfect school for the students in need of financial aid. You will receive the utmost education while paying less than half of what you would pay in other schools. Since it is only a two year college, you will have the time to prepare and then proceed to the universities you had in mind that focus on your major. Do not be afraid. Miami Dade College is a step forward.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College is a humble school that gives students a great opportunity to have an education without breaking their bank accounts. The teachers and staff here are incredible, pushing students to levels they never knew they had. This school helps shove dreaming students onto the right paths leading to the best schools in the country.

    Academic Rigor

    Visiting professors during their office hours is key.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of all of the oppurtunities handed to you. Be active, join as many clubs that interest you as you can. Get to know your professors, they are your gateway to internships and other potential connections.

    In three sentences

    In my two years of attending this institution, I can honestly say that Miami Dade College has offered me nothing but exciting oppurtunities.

    Even though you don't see much of them, the campus securities are ever where to assure the safety of the students and staff on any of the campuses.

    Clubs and Activities

    That's what i really like about the school, they sort of encourage you to be involved in other activities then your classes, they want you to have a social life.

    Great for these types of students

    It doesn't matter the type of student you are, you will always find your group to fit in at Miami Dade College.

    What to do for fun

    They have a lot of clubs that you could join to really live the college life. Student Life has an activity going on, on campus every Wednesday. There's no chance for you to get bored if you join at least one club, because they have some activities and meetings every Wednesday. The school also encourages you to join a club because every Wednesday from 12:00pm to 1:00pm there are no classes at all because this is regularly the time that the clubs have meetings.

    Food and Dining

    The food that they serve at the cafeteria taste as good as a food that you'll pay a lot of money for in a restaurant.

    Dorm Life

    I live with my parents so I can't really tell about the dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    They hire highly qualified teachers. Most of them know what they are doing and love their jobs.

    Campus Safety

    There aren't many security officers on campus, but there are enough around to keep the peace. Fights seem to be rare in most campuses, and the safety of the students is never an issue. Students should feel confident that their cars will be fine because there actually are more security guards driving around the parking lot to ensure student safety.

    Greek Life

    There are rarely any students that speak of Greek Life in Miami Dade; it's so rare that no students even know it exists. A students goal in this college is usually to get their associates and then pursue their bachelors in a university.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs and activities are not very popular in Miami Dade, there is a baseball team, and a basket ball team, but the students don't get hyped for games like in other colleges and universities. There is a gym on campus if students want to get a work out in between classes, which could be convenient for people with little time to waste.

    Great for these types of students

    Any student that didn't do so great in high school has a second chance in Miami Dade College. At first the classes are simple, and as students continue earning their credits the classes become progressively challenging. Students looking to complete their associates without the hassle of paying insane tuition costs should definitely look into Miami Dade.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a conservation center across the street from one of the campuses in Miami Dade College, and students usually wouldn't hear about it unless they are assigned a service learning project. The conservation center is incredible for students interested in pursuing environmental sciences, botany, or zoology. There is a large colored gate at the entrance, then a long path the student must walk in order to get to a building housing different animals like snakes, turtles, and even an alligator!

    Bang for the buck

    This is a very reputable school, despite what any student might say. Getting an associates, or even a bachelors (depending on your degree), is a great idea because the classes are so inexpensive. There will never be a single student that can say that they graduated from Miami Dade and learned nothing, because there will always be those few professors, or classes, that will point the way to a student finding their future career.

    What to do for fun

    There are rarely any game rooms on campus, unless that includes a pool table in one of the cafeterias. So the students best option is to go to the cafeteria, where there are a couple of big screen TVs playing music videos, and just hang out with their friends, or study. There are often kids bringing in their musical instruments and getting on stage and jamming while other students enjoy there lunch, and that is always fun to watch.

    Food and Dining

    There are 2 cafeterias in the Kendall campus, and one in the West campus. The food is typically what one would expect from a cafeteria, french fries, burgers, chips, etc. There are no restaurants such as Chili's or Subway that could be found in the campus; fortunately, students could find small restaurants to eat at across the street from the schools, and they even offer student discounts!

    Dorm Life

    There are rarely any students, if any at all, that live in a dorm on the campus. There doesn't seem to be an option to have a dorm, so future students should be wary while looking into the places to stay while attending Miami Dade College.

    Academic Rigor

    This school has its ups and downs when it comes to the effort that the professors are willing to put in so that the student leaves their class with a new set of skills and knowledge. There are some professors that will completely change the way the student thinks about life, and will inspire them to choose the major that best suites them. There are also some professors that will carelessly teach without an ounce of enthusiasm and expect their students to read their textbooks, and learn the information by the date of their assigned tests. Fortunately the careless teachers are the minority, but students should always put in their best effort to ensure themselves a solid A in all of their classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Any student looking at Miami Dade College as the school they are considering attending should know this: if you are looking to attend this college, then don't expect to work exceptionally hard to get good grades. It's unfortunate that some professors in Miami Dade would not challenge their students enough to learn the material, but simply offer moderately simple assignments for grades. There are the occasional tough professors that make their students fight for their A and will possibly offer the student a new, and more intellectual, way of thinking.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade is an excellent college for students to get a great education at an affordable price, and there are many interesting people to meet. The professors are definitely the best part of going to Miami Dade; their knowledge and enthusiasm on the subjects they teach make the students want to learn more about the never ending information flowing in the world. This school should be given 4 out of 5 stars overall; the campuses are clean, there are quiet places to study, there are places to eat, and also places to exercise. Unfortunately, it doesn't get the full 5 stars because there really isn't anything truly spectacular about this college that would separate it from any other community college.

    Miami Dade has a number of campuses; I have taken classes at two of their campuses, North and Wolfson. While North is located in a residential area, Wolfson is located in Downtown Miami and there's a lot of fun things to do and many different restaurants.

    Food and Dining

    Miami Dade offers inexpensive yet delicious dining.

    Academic Rigor

    All of the classes I have taken so far at Miami Dade have been informative and a great learning experience. The professors are all interesting in their own way. Some classes are more difficult than others, but at the end of each semester I have always walked away more knowledgeable than before.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some of the office staff are unhelpful, unorganized, and unprofessional which would be my only complaint about the school. If you plan on having to deal with a financial aid adviser or anyone from the registration offices, be prepared. Make sure you get as much information as you need, be thorough and write down the person's name who helped you, in case it turns out that they might have given you misleading information.

    Miami Dade College's campus' architecture is unique and sophisticated, which also is a perfect way to explain the school itself.

    When it boils down to security, Miami dade has an outside force that marches through this territory! The police Academy is right around the corner and so close that they choose to do routine exercises in front of the Mcdonald's positioned perfectly across the street from building 3. :) Campus security do their thang so to speak. No shootings, so they've done a great job so far! The Police department is also 4 blocks northwest and campus is conveniently located next to a Federal (http://www.bop.gov/locations/institutions/mim/index.jsp) prison as well as its court. So I would like to believe security is superb...right?

    Clubs and Activities

    The infamous club Space! Also in the downtown area for all you who live close to campus or on campus. Saturdays are its only nights of operation and continues until mid day Sunday. Bars invade the blocks of downtown and finding a place for a drink is within spitting distance. They're just there! Bay Front Park (http://www.bayfrontparkmiami.com/), located north-east of Biscayne ,offers live entertainment and can fulfill any wine and dine date desires. Awesome location for dating and also a fantastic spot for group meetings for students especially in between classes. It is literally withing pitching distance from building 3. Trust me, I've thrown objects to justify my claim. :)

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    An unusual tradition that I have been blessed to enjoy is, a group... that some how maintains this designated piece of concrete in front of building two. They are hiphop/break dancers. Freedom of expression has a lasting vibe at Miami Dade College ranging from dance to fashion. This campus is no follower but a league of innovators shaping the modern future.

    Bang for the buck

    Movies are always filmed around the downtown area. Movies such as Burn Notice, Charlies Angels and many. Who knows?! You could be an extra. There are casting calls all the time, so making that extra money is not always a bad thing. A movie was shot right at the federal court house across the street from campus as well. All throughout downtown commercials and movies can be seen simultaneously throughout the weeks. Who knows, you can be the next star like Tyler Perry. :) Go big or go home!

    Food and Dining

    There are multiple choices when it comes to eating out and satisfying your appetite. Your a college student, and you have to eat, right? Whatever it may be that your dieing to consume, believe me when I say it is within shooting distance. Pizza, Chinese, cold cuts, Cuban sandwiches, home made meals etc etc. The list goes on my friend. You have nothing to complain about. Publix grocery store is also conveniently located off the the Metro mover into Brickell. You CAN'T miss the sign on the way there.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life?! Your in downtown Miami and I'm sure the last place I will be is my dorm, considering the fact I live off campus. Metro mover, which travels within the inner city between Brickell and Bicentennial park, is conveniently located within walking distance. The Metro rail station is also within walking distance as well which travels south of Miami up until North Miami connecting you to a train if your willing to go to Ft. Lauder dale. City transit does an awesome job getting you to where you would like to be. These bus drivers operate this massive vehicle as if it were there own personal vehicle. Trust me when I say, you will make it to class....on time! So whatever your living situation may be, you will be well taken care of provided by the city of Miami.

    Academic Rigor

    Rigor? Here at Miami Dade Collede (downtown campus) our teachers have an exceptionally way of either helping you, or breaking you down. Being able to reciprocate the information your teacher is communicating for your benefit come in many styles. Quality teaching with great results and this is from personal experience. Take it from someone who took the FCAT up until 12th grade. Long story short, just listen in class and you wont fail. ;) Exceptional teaching with a challenging twist.

    Tips for prospective students

    Here at Miami Dade College (downtown) VARIETY is the key! Teachers of many national backgrounds offer this campus a much more diverse style of learning. Seeking a teacher that fits your style of learning is one thing that many colleges lack, but not this one! I have a Cuban math teacher that I can hardly understand, but I pay even much more attention because of how he is so enthused about his teaching and it WORKS! Globalization is internationalizing us, so being able to communicate between different people is key to succeeding in the future to come.

    In three sentences

    Variety is quality here at Miami Dade College. Globalization is Internationalizing us and this statement is a well representation of Miami Dade College. Satisfying college needs at every level and preparing students for the competitive future to come.

    In three sentences

    Unlike state universities, MDC in my opinion have better teachers not because of the quality but because of the attentiveness and availability of the professors. Most of the time your professors are people either in the proffesion they are teaching or retired from the proffesion, so they are more knowledgable and have connections to the real world. They are focused on making sure you learn instead of their private research, and the class size is smaller with about 30 students per class on average.

It all really depends on what you like to do in your free time but there is something for everybody.

    Food and Dining

    The food is great and the prices are pretty reasonable. Some vending machines around the campus take credit and debit cards for those who don't carry around cash and want a quick snack before class.

    Dorm Life

    Sadly MDC doesn't have dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    In my short time here at Miami Dade I honestly feel like the amount I have earned in such short time is unreal. Not only do you learn about material related towards what you wish to do in life but you also different material that opens new doors for a career path you may have not even knew existed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't feed into the whole Oh Dade is just a second (insert high school). What I mean is if you are hear for educational growth and bettering your future you will not see half the people you think you will. It's a great way to save money and still get an above average education at the same time.

    I've only eaten at the Homestead Campus but they have decent food. Because the college is not a live in school the cafe does not really carry anything more than a quick bite to eat; although, they have added a new Chick N' Grill restaurant in the cafe.

    If I could I would put not applicable because there is no dorm life. Miami Dade College is a commuter college.

    Academic Rigor

    Many people think just because this is a 2-year college it's a breeze, well it's not. Your classes will force you to pay attention and learn. If you just want the to be able to say I'm going to college, Miami Dade is not for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be early, early, early!!! Apply for financial aide early. Sign up for your classes early. Before you sign up for a class check the professor on ratemyprofessor.com trust me it works wonderfully. Don't procrastinate; just because this is mostly a 2-year college doesn't mean you can just slack off and not do anything. If you do that you will fail I promise. Get used books when possible and rent if you can, it saves a lot of money. Also, take advantage of the tutoring and labs and stuff. There are English tutors to help you with you papers, a Math Lab and, at least on Homestead Campus, an Open Lab for some of the science classes.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade is amazing; the teachers are helpful and funny. Use ratemyprofessor.com it works. The campus is fun and there are a lot of activities throughout the year.

    Great for these types of students

    Working students, who need a flexible schedule

    Bang for the buck

    I think Miami Dade has a lot of extra things, like the Writing Center which checks and helps you to write your papers when needed. Also, they have the Math Lab where there are tutors on site to help with problems. The library has the textbooks needed in most classes, in case you can't afford to buy one.

    Food and Dining

    I go to the Coffee house when I need a bite to eat and I always love the paninis!

    Academic Rigor

    Miami Dade is like any other school, I have taken courses that were VERY difficult, and others that were a lot more simple. It all depends on your learning style, and the professor.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to sign up early, and pay on time. Make sure you keep track of all the credits you've taken/need to take and make copies of ALL documents.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College is a very flexible school, that offers many of the classes that other schools offer but at a more affordable price.

    I do not know what that is to do for fun at MDC. I am not sure what is available. I look forward to finding out what activities are available at the different neighboring campuses.

    Food and Dining

    Haven't experienced the food and dining areas yet. I have seen long lines wrap around a corner for food. The students and staff seem happy with the meals provided so I assuming it is good.

    Dorm Life

    I have never been to the dorms on or around campus. I wasn't aware there were dorms available for us students. If so which campus are there dorms on; are they available for nearby students?

    Academic Rigor

    I have not yet experienced the classroom atmosphere yet. What I have seen through the windows as I have walked through the halls look pretty normal. Regular students, regular teacher, and regular classroom.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be motivated and go after what really interest you. Choose classes intelligently, and take classes that you really want and will learn from. Get involved by joining a club or a sport, I have been to a university before and I wish I was involved in college as much as I was involved in high school.

    In three sentences

    The schools are very big and a little confusing. I know there are many students, but not everyone working is as nice or accommodating as I am use to. I have met that one helpful person in EOC that made up for every bad experience I have had; he was super helpful and I am very grateful.
