    Campus Safety

    Campus is very safe. I have never seen anything bad or dangerous happen to anyone.

    What to do for fun

    The environment is very calm and relaxing. You can sit outside and do homework or talk with friends. You can go to the library to read a book, do homework, or use the computers. You can join one of the many clubs and teams that the school has.

    Food and Dining

    There are many vending machines all around campus and a cafe where you can buy food and snacks like chips, protein bars, soda, water, salads, yogurts, pizza, empanadas, pastelitos, mile, lattes, cappucinos etc. Also, clubs sometimes sell food around campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are not very hard. As long as you study and attend classes you will get good grades and learn a lot.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you pick your classes early so you can get the professors that you want, and the time and dates that you want them.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade is a great school to start of with and then transfer. It's less expensive than other school and you get the same education that you get in more expensive schools. It has a great environment, nice students, and amazing professors.

    What to do for fun

    Miami is fun no matter what you are in to. So many different cultures are represented here meaning the food is amazing and unlike anywhere else. Venture over to little havana for authentic Cuban food or into South Beach for fine dining. Clubs and nightlife are clearly a part of the Miami culture but don't make that the reason you attend school here.

    Food and Dining

    Some food on campus but not much. Most students eat in the surrounding downtown area.

    Dorm Life

    No campus housing.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on the class level and the professor the diffculty can vary. It is a smaller classroom setting so be prepared for your absence to be noticed on some days. The professors coursework can differ as well. Some professors assign more homework and less exam's while others are the reverse. All in all they are there to teach you so as long as you are present and engaged you will learn probably more than you would from a state school at half of the cost.

    Tips for prospective students

    Miami is very diverse and MDC is no exception. Be mindful to what professors you choose being as some may be hard to understand at times. Also be mindful to other cultures around campus and respect their beliefs. As a business student the best place on campus to study, read, research, or get help is the idea center. They have countles computers and offer tutoring for every business course. The idea center is also tailored with quite reading rooms. I suggest using this space to it's fullest. I spent a majority of my time in this center.

    In three sentences

    MDC Wolfson campus is in the hear of downtown Miami with some of the most amazing professors I have come across. Class sizes are small which encourges participation and enhances your learning. Overall this school has been an economical choice to a good education. The professors and advisors care about you and it shows through in the learning outcomes you will leave with.

    What to do for fun

    They have weekly events and concerts that you are able to go too and attend.

    Food and Dining

    Food is expensive and limited. Better to go off campus.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is non existent but you can find friendly people all around.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are easy while the professors make other classes (chem, math, etc) very difficult.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to get involved and not to slack off. Humanities with Professor Vazquez is the best class I have ever taken and ever will take! A must take for any student at MDC!

    Academic Rigor

    I�ve learned so much because these teachers and I�m so glad to have been able to sit in their classrooms. They really do care about giving each and every student a quality education and want you to excel in their class. I am actually captivated by the classes here. I am taking classes such as The Social Environment, Human growth and development, Etc. Miami Dade has so many helpful attributes; for example the school is home to various Math Labs, Reading Labs, Writing Labs and helpful Tutors. There is so much to enjoy when it comes to school, many of the clubs hold concerts, recitals and even cooking demonstrations.

    Tips for prospective students

    For any future students interested in attending Miami Dade College i will advise you not to procrastinate and to pay attention in class. Most of the professors love to make their classes very engaging and are delighted when you have something to contribute to their classes.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College has something for any type of student out there, you just have to ask! At Miami Dade, there is such a variation of students that everyone has a place to fit in. I do in fact enjoy being a student at Miami Dade College, because I feel that they give you the opportunity to choose from a variety of campuses that are located near you and professors at your own convenience.

    Campus Safety

    I haven't had any issues with safety. Do have friends who have been tricked out of money to help people who are currently not attending the college. But that would be about it.

    Great for these types of students

    MDC is great for students who are working and are trying to get ahead in life.

    What to do for fun

    Every month there are films or theatre productions, or mini-festivals.

    Food and Dining

    The food is relatively good, but a bit pricey.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are comparable to FIU in information and expectation of what a student is required to learn and master.

    Tips for prospective students

    The only way to fail your classes is to not have your book and not put forth any extra effort after attending class. MDC gives you everything you need to succeed in class, you just have to go out and take advantage of these resources made available to all students.

    In three sentences

    MDC has an incredible support system for their students. Most departments support a Peer Tutor that is designated to help classmates with a certain topic of study. They have Foreign Language Lab, Writing lab, Physics tutoring lab, Chemistry tutoring lab, and a Math tutoring lab, along with an Anatomy Lab that contains all the models used for exams.

    Many activities available there such as fairs, parades, volunteering among others. Also, you will be in Downtown if you choose Wolfson Campus and there are many stuff to do around too.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms

    Academic Rigor

    It will all depend on which professor you choose, of course

    Tips for prospective students

    If you can, try Wolfson Campus at Downtown Miami. Also, look for the meanest professors (they have plenty of them there). You will learn a lot with those that push you to it and then will reward you for your efforts.

    In three sentences

    - It is a money wise decision. - I have had wonderful professors committed to my learning goals and career decision. - Many locations all around Miami area, perfect fit for everyone, wherever you are.

    Campus Safety

    In everywhere you can find a security guard.

    Clubs and Activities

    You have different clubs. The majority of sport clubs are located in the North Campus. You can play tennis, swimming, etc. If you like ping pong, you can join the club.You can be part of the Chess club. Every Wednesday, between 12 to 1 pm, school organizes a different event, to make students take a break of their classes and relax that hour in the week, meet new people and socialize.

    What to do for fun

    the Wolfson Campus is near to the Bayside. You can go shopping and dinning there.

    Food and Dining

    In the Wolfson Campus are not a big variety where to choose. There are a cafeteria where the food is acceptable but no a big thing and the prices in my opinion are not for the quality of the food, a McDonals that if you like this kind of food, you won't have any problem. Also, near to campus you can find small cafeterias with affordable prices, a Subway and Campus is near to the Bayside where you can find several places to eat.

    Dorm Life

    School does not have dormitories, so all MDC students live off campus. In this webpage provide by the school you can find a place where to live while you are attending to school www.apartmentguide.com.

    Academic Rigor

    You can't miss more than three classes in the term. You always have to turning in your work in time.

    Tips for prospective students

    Talk with your advisor, and he or she will try to help you to plan your classes and give you advises about what you should do to achieve your academic goals. Enroll in students activities, that makes you meet new people form different places and share experiences.

    In three sentences

    The Wolfson Campus has a good location because it has easy access by car, train, or bus. Also you have the beach a few minutes from campus. The teachers are really good, you enjoy and learn in their classes.

    Campus Safety

    In the past, I've heard from previous students, that the north campus was a very dangerous one. Today there is more safety. Nothing stellar, but at nights there are cops patrolling all around. At day, the police officials I've seen even smoking. Very disillusioning. I feel safe though at all times. Some are very dedicated cops. I remember one time I was resting in the swing by the lake and a cop came and approached me asking if I was okay. I guessed he was concerned about whether I was unconscious in any sense. I was not but I appreciated it.

    Greek Life

    No greek life. Only close thing to it is Phi Theta Kappa and the Honors College which I am part of. Remember that it is a community college.

    Clubs and Activities

    StudentLife makes its best effort to keep our campus active. There is a series of activities all-year round to engage the students in leadership and service. I myself I'm part of clubs and was able to found a chapter of NAMI. They are very permissive if all requests are submitted in time (there is a request for everything). But the only thing that I do not like is that for fundraisers you need to keep some of the money because if you give them all to them there is a big chance that you don't see it for months after putting a requests. Regardless, the schools holds various meetings with the Dean and President of the campus in order to heard from the students worries, claims, and appreciations.

    Great for these types of students

    Students that are returning from a break from schools, international students, adults, and those wanting to go for vocations. I recommend their Honors College which I am part of. It is one of the most prominent in the nation.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The swings around the lake are a resting place. At sunset, it is a beautiful sight from the Science Complex building. That is my favorite place on campus, the lake. All other building are surrounding it. I love their beautiful Koi Fish and their turtles. I once released mine in their (which I do not know if that was permissible >.< but whatever.) You get to feed both the fish and the turtles as well. Beautiful iguanas are all over the bright green grass and tall, shade-providing trees.

    What to do for fun

    Be involved! in clubs and with the Student Government Association.

    Food and Dining

    Their food is great! I have to say that although very expensive, it is worth it. My favorite is the Sub Station. They make the best subs and wraps. But it is not limitted to that. They have Grilled Nation, Ethnic Foods, and Salad Bars. Everything is made in front of your eyes :)

    Dorm Life

    None

    Academic Rigor

    I am in the Honors College of MDC. Believe me is very selective and rigorous. They have certain standards like 3.5 GPA and above, mandatory service learning and community service, and Colloquium attendance. Everything is paid for those students! They also have American Dream Scholars for 3.0 and above which pays for your classes if financial aid does not or is missing. As opposed to those, the other regular students also get rigorous work. Not because of programs or classes, because of professors. They are genuinely interested in the success of their students. The chemistry professors are the worst though. they are an exception. Only professor Garcia and Andreina Aguado Jimenez are the one to praise.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not waste your time taking it easy. Miami Dade have conducted their students to their desired goals. Take it seriously. Visit professors hours, avoid Vinciguerra, never by books until said the first day of class (get PDF's online), try not to waste all your money on school cafeteria, get involved, get to know your professors of your field and their department heads, take calculus and above at Wolfson,maintaing a 3.0 gpa and above, attend activities, lectures, and seminars, and do your FASFA on time (they are incompetent at times!).

    Academic Rigor

    They keep you on point and headed in the right direction. It takes your own dedication with the school's advisement to make it happen.

    Come in willing to learn and you will get a community of those willing to help and make it possible whether it be professors, tutors, advisers, or financial aid.

    Campus Safety

    There is security 24/7 at all campuses of Miami Dade College including the local police that give the campus a quick drive by. There are Blue Light systems in all parking areas and for almost every row. The parking areas are also very well lit and open so there are no corners that can not be seen.

    Greek Life

    There are computers EVERYWHERE on campus. Each department also has their own designated lab area where students can get one-on-one tutoring for a specific subject. P.S. students can also become employees for their favorite subjects.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs that are offered by different departments in the college. From speech and debate to Thespians they are all open to the students of the college. There are sororities on campus so you can still live your dreams of being members without going bankrupt.

    Great for these types of students

    Its great for the student that does not have the heavy pocket to pay for a private college or university. It is also a great atmosphere for those students who dont wish to have such a crazy packed campus like other colleges and Universities. Also I dont know if its just me but its a great place to feel comfortable being you and not having to feel out of place doing so.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    My hangout spot is definitely the cafe behind building two of the Kendall Campus. It is the most chill spot to grab a coffee and catch up with your friends in between classes or after class.

    Bang for the buck

    Secret of the kendall campus is the bookstore. You get to sell back the majority of your books and they usually give you back half of what you paid for it. The Wolfson campus is smack in the middle of Down Town Miami where the atmosphere is the usual hustle and bustle of business and if you walk a couple of blocks you get to enjoy the beautiful bay area of Key Biscayne.

    What to do for fun

    Their is great college life on campus. There are academic fairs that go on every other week with music and FREE FOOD! The computer court yard is a cool place to hang out and have a study group sesh. There are baseball games around 3 pm during the season and there are swim meets you can watch. There is a gym that is FREE and the pool is available to students as well.

    Food and Dining

    The cafe in the center of the college has the BEST pastellitos ever! They also have WiFi and electrical sockets everywhere so you can sit and do homework/study. Their are vending machines in every building and there is also a cafeteria where you can get hot food and a large variety of snacks, everything is affordable for a college students budget.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life at this College but the surrounding areas have great living spaces, especially the Kendall and Wolfson campus. I do not know of the other campus areas because I have not attended them. Kendall is a great suburban area and the Wolfson campus is located in the heart of Down Town Miami with great city and night life.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors that I have had the privilege of meeting and attending their class have all been wonderful. They all have firm learning plans and make sure that their material is being absorbed and not just memorized. I love the fact that the departments all have their separate advisement so you get the mot accurate information possible.

    Tips for prospective students

    The best tips I can offer prospective students is to stay focused, put yourself out there, make new friends, and STUDY. This is not High school and the majority of your professors want you to actually learn their material. College is for YOUR future no one else's so do not fool around with this opportunity.

    In three sentences

    This college has many different campus choices, with locations all over Miami-Dade. The tuition is the most affordable compared to the other colleges and universities that are in the surrounding area. This college has a very laid back atmosphere and has awesome facilities to cater to your needs.

    Miami Dade has easily opened the doors to my future by giving me the financial opportunity I needed to attend College. The professors are outstanding and the classes are flexible that work around your busy schedule. Most importantly the Advisers really help you with what classes you need to take each semester or in my case help you take the classes you need to transfer to another University.

    Food and Dining

    Students at the enjoy a variety of restaurants within easy walking distance, there is a full cafeteria. Each campus offers basic food services to keep you fed when youâ??re on the go.

    Academic Rigor

    MDC expects students to demonstrate not only content mastery but applied skills and critical thinking about the disciplines being taught.

    Tips for prospective students

    Forget what you did in high school, tabula rasa. Once, you get to college you start as a clean slate. So whether one was a jock, a studious person or a slacker it doesnâ??t really apply to college once one gets accepted. Choose the schedule for the classes you want ahead of time. Sometimes, you will have a free time or a gap in between the classes you chose. Make sure, you manage your time wisely. Some classes are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Other classes are Tuesday and Thursday. The professor or instructor you will have is going to assign you a syllabus in the beginning of the course. That syllabus will be your new best friend. The syllabus consists of your professor's name, contact information, office location, a calendar that reveals how the course is organized and what's happening in class each day it meets and that probably integrates the due dates listed above, and office hours the professor has. With the syllabus you will know the homework and tests ahead of time. So you will plan ahead. If you don't have a calendar, set-up popup reminders in your phone to keep track of important activities and assignments through the day.

    What to do for fun

    Anything is fun if you make it fun! You can buy turtle food and feed the cute little turtles in the lake. You can sit by the lake and read a book, study, or talk to a friend. You can also swing on the swingy benches and swing time away. Or you can join a club because there are many clubs of many interests that provide opportunities to learn and network and diversify yourself.

    Food and Dining

    Everyday there is a special, but you also have your trusty menu of burgers, french fries, and Philly Cheese Steaks. Sometimes the food could use a little more salt, but other than that, food is reasonably priced and there are vending machines on campus for those on-the-go or those who simply love over-priced candy.

    Dorm Life

    The most dorm life you see at a college sans dormitories, are students napping on the benches or students slumbering in the corner of the library or students using their textbooks as pillows.

    Academic Rigor

    Each course is different and each courses is taught by a different professor. Some classes can be difficult and others can be easy. Ultimately, the student is the one that can make it hard or easy on their-self if he/she studies or doesn't, if he/she does assignments on time, and if he/she alters their perspective.

    Tips for prospective students

    You have heard it countless times. Don't procrastinate! Don't goof off! Study! And it's all true. If you want to succeed, take your classes seriously. Your grades will show it, but more importantly, your work ethic will, which is essential out in the job field.

    Food is similar to that of a fast food restaurants and is quite constant with its choices. The cafe is decent but there really isn't a lot of healthy alternatives. But if you looking for some burgers and fries, maybe a slice of pizza, then its a fine fit.

    Campus Safety

    It is safe to go around. My friends and I haven't had any problem in campus. There are cameras everywhere and it is easy to find a security guard in case you need it.

    Clubs and Activities

    I have joined a club and so far the experience has been amazing. We've had several activities through the year. I had to pay to receive my membership, but it was affordable and worth it. The club coordinates activities with teachers and other institutions. We have also had student abroad programs.

    Bang for the buck

    Most of the classes are affordable, but international students end up paying a lot more than the rest. You will get good quality classes, even though that would depend on the classes that you take. Bigger classrooms have better equipment, and small classrooms have less equipment. Also, if you drive, there's a huge parking lot, but sometimes it's difficult to find the right place.

    What to do for fun

    There are some things one can do for fun in campus. First of all, this is a big campus and there is a lot of space for people to walk. Having said that, you can walk around, find a place to sit and talk to your friends until your next class starts. There is a also a big library and computer courtyard. You can grab a computer and start surfing the web if you wish. You can also join clubs and be part of many activities. They also have a gym, track field, pool and ball-related sports.

    Food and Dining

    To be honest, the food here is not so good. I've only eaten here a few times, but I didn't enjoy it. They have the basic things: burgers, nuggets, french fries, pizza and salads. They also sell fruits, desserts, beverages and snacks, but most of these things are pricey. If you wanna grab something quick to eat, go for it, but I wouldn't recommend it. The cafeteria is large and clean, so that's a good thing. Most of the time there are seats available.

    Dorm Life

    You cannot stay and sleep here. There are no dorms here.

    Academic Rigor

    You could find all kind of teachers, classes and classmates, and that's not always a good thing. Lucky enough, I have met great teachers who are organized and rigorous. Most classes are not easy, but they are worth it. I have met people who have dropped out of the course because they said classes were too hard, but the rest continued going to class. You will have to put a lot of effort to pass the class. There is no way you can pass the class if you go whenever you feel like it. You have to be realistic and get your work done on time.

    In three sentences

    Big, affordable and diverse. Their Kendall Campus is very spacious. Taking classes here is affordable and worth it because you get to meet great teachers and all kinds of students.

    Food and Dining

    I mostly attend MDC West, which is a rather tiny campus. There's not much dining to speak of and you're better off bringing food if you're going to be stuck there for a while. There is, however, plenty of snacks (from vending machines and the student shop) and a very limited cafeteria. Kendall campus has a couple of dining areas with several food options for snack as well as full meals.

    Dorm Life

    MDC does not provide housing across any of its campuses. Students get their own housing from nearby apartment complexes. Across school bulletins, there's often students putting up offers and asking for roommates - if not, school is close to many neighborhood and housing areas and is quite literally right off the highway depending on where you come from.

    Academic Rigor

    Largely depends on the course and instructor. I've had a few instructors who teach directly from the book or handouts, and those don't often feel very thorough. Some teach from powerpoint projections or simply speak to the class without the need of prompts, and those can also been very full of material, or can also feel lacking.

    Tips for prospective students

    Attending MDC is largely affected by which campus you attend. For people who speak spanish, West campus is for you. For the best variety in classes and students, the main campus (Kendall) is the best for you.

    In three sentences

    MDC is, overall, a good school. The instructors are interesting and know their material, and classroom size is small and personal. You get out what you put into it.

    Excellent community college, way more cost effective than FIU for your associates degree. The slow processing of applications, financial aid, and registration for classes can be a pain.

    What to do for fun

    There are multiple clubs here at Miami Dade College. I personally joined the Computer Club to tinker with hardware and attend the workshops where we learn to make smartphone apps, and play games at the common room when not at a meeting. There's also various events on campus such as music concerts and theatrical plays that are free to all Miami Dade college students.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria ofers a variety of pre-made sandwiches, to hot home-cooked like meals, to fries and burgers. However it's a bit over priced, especially for being a community college where mostly all students are on a budget.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms available.

    Academic Rigor

    Pre-requisites are tedious but mostly review from high school (English, algebra). Major-specific classes are more rigorous but you won't stress out crying from the work load, it's doable if given the adequate time.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not repeatedly skip your classes. The atmosphere may seem lack luster however the more times you blow off your classes to either hang out with friends or stay home it'll come to bite you back. Financial Aid here is *mostly* promising. You must be on top of the financial aid department however to make sure everything is done on time.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College is starting to offer bachelor degree for a variety of majors which is interesting considering this is a community college. The atmosphere is very localized as everyone gets along well with one another. Amazing little community college.

    Pretty safe campus, haven't really run into any problems. If you're worried about your safety at night, you can always ask security to escort you to your car.

    Greek Life

    Wait, we have Greek Life?

    Clubs and Activities

    Apart from the activities of the Performing Arts Department, and the Sports Department, I haven't really heard of anything else going on on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    By far, Business Majors get the best facilities for the price. Music majors also get a good music program that will train them to move on to better universities. I'm not sure about the other majors.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None that I'm aware of.

    Bang for the buck

    You'll be getting an education that normally costs about $20K at bigger universities, for $1-3K, Which is a tremendous boon for low income students. The facilities are of course, far from top notch. But that's the trade-off one gets for the price.

    What to do for fun

    There are a LOT of concerts, recitals, plays, etc. happening all around campus, make sure to keep an eye on the school calender if you wish to go to one.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food at the Kendall campus is decent and affordable. The quality varies by semester.

    Dorm Life

    It's a commuter college, not much of a dorm life to speak of.

    Academic Rigor

    The coursework has a good pacing, just be sure you're on top of your assignments.

    Tips for prospective students

    Most of the programs at Miami Dade are pathway programs, that is, you're using it to transfer to a higher college, such as University of Miami, Florida International University, and Florida State University. With that being said, make sure to keep your grades up to boost your chances of being accepted into a better University.

    In three sentences

    Good college to begin studying Music, especially the Kendall campus. A very cheap college to study for your Associate's degree. The facilities aren't the best in the world, but it's to be expected given the price.

    You'll always find something to do at Miami Dade, without a doubt it is a great college. I felt bad going there my first day, but within the first semester I was thrilled. If I ever needed help, it was there, when I didn't understand something, someone was nearby to explain and when I was terrified of how much it would cost, my mind was blown. For a fraction of what my friends were paying, I had my AA first and was having a blast with some great professors.

    What to do for fun

    You can participate in all kinds of clubs and associations at any campus. They have random events and performances throughout the semester and sometimes your fellow students do their own random things. We had improv comedy shows, orchestra performances, fitness challenges in the midst of the day and bake sales and club rushes it seemed like every week.

    Food and Dining

    Some campuses offer more food option than others. The food is pretty good, but I saved the money and brought my lunch when I needed it. Each campus is located near plenty of restaurants also. No matter what you're craving, it's probably nearby.

    Dorm Life

    I got to stay home, best dorm ever! MDC is accessible by public buses in miami dade county and there are plenty of campuses so you can stay at your house. The dorm life at MDC is as good as it gets!

    Academic Rigor

    So classes are tougher than others. One prof. may ask for one paper every other week, while you math prof. tests you every week. Some teachers may only give you a speech to do at the end of the semester and chill out the rest of the time. Each class is different, they can be incredibly tough (you may lose hair and cry) or they may make you feel like you're back in kindergarten for an hour.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to school early! Allow fifteen minutes to find a parking spot, always. Respect your classes, study! You're wasting money and time if you sleep through class and party instead of study. Respect your professors, they worked hard to get there, and they'll remember you for it (you can use them for references later). Did I mention study? No matter how easy that class is, study!

    In three sentences

    In general, I had a great time at MDC. The teachers were very supportive and encouraging, and I was lucky enough to not have a professor determined to fail someone. Buses run to the campuses, there's a department for everything, plenty of food as well as ways they try to make your experience better. Parking is tough and compared to a university, it's just a more expensive high school, but you do learn at MDC, no doubt. I loved it!

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very secure, just be careful venturing out around Downtown at night.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is something for everyone!

    Great for these types of students

    Anyone who appreciates culture, diversity, and good food.

    The book fair is world famous and always has great speakers.

    Bang for the buck

    The Honors College pays the full cost of your tuition and adds in a 1,100 stipend each semester, plus any scholarships you earn. I make about 3,000 dollars a semester and its not uncommon for students to earn between 4,000-5,000 dollars a semester through financial aid or scholarships. No debt. No loans. The Honors college isn't here to drain students of money, it is here to invest in the next generation of leaders.

    What to do for fun

    There are many, many clubs at the Wolfson Campus and the Fitness Center is awesome! Not to mention that you are minutes away from the beach and are in downtown miami with tons of fun groups, places, and activities catering to a diverse student body. There is always something going on and boredom is a choice when there are so many great things to do in walking distance.

    Food and Dining

    You can literally go two blocks in any direction from the campus and find a multitude and variety of great dining at affordable prices. In the mood for sushi? a block away. In the mood for Italian? a block away. There are also tons of small hole-in-the-wall places that have incredible food at comparative prices. The food is spectacular and you will never run out of a variety and quality.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms by there are plenty of great apartments well within commuting distance to the campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The Honors College at Wolfson campus is no joke when it comes to academics, students are expected to keep well above a 3.5 GPA or get kicked out of the Honors College and the Honors Credit classes are very through and you will be pushed. Between 35-40% of students that start the Honors College at Wolfson don't make it passed their first year and many graduates go on to schools like UNC Chapel Hill, Berkley, and ivy leagues on scholarship. I thought that since I was attending a community college that it would be easy, but the Honors program is far from easy, in fact many of the students who get kicked out go to schools like University of Miami, this program is not for the faint of heart.

    Tips for prospective students

    -Apply early -Don't underestimate the prestige and difficulty of the Honors College. -Keep an open mind and socialize!

    In three sentences

    I attend the Honors College at Miami Dade Wolfson campus and my experience has been fantastic. From the beauty of down-town Miami to the rich transculturation of the campus, if you attend the Honors College you will not regret it. You will learn skills and meet people who will change your life forever, and get paid to do it.

    Miami-dade offers a lot of opportunity to get ahead and if one does really well, IVY schools are in ones near future. For whatever reason a student ended up in this college, Miami-dade gives you a fresh new start. Classes range from very easy to very hard, but it's all up to the student to do their best. Advisement is always there to help and most teachers actually enjoy teaching. But if one doesn't put in their own time, or try, this school isn't going to chase after you to help.

    In three sentences

    Miami-Dade College offers a great opportunity for students who didn't do their best in high school but want a second chance to try and do better in college. In the STEM field, the field I'm currently enrolled in, teachers want their students to learn and take time out of their day to help students. I most say, for a community college, Miami-Dade is great.

    Many of the professors at Miami-Dade also teach at Florida International University. You are getting an equivalent education. The professors who do not teach there, most likely have secondary jobs in which they practice what they teach. They are all very interested in helping students if the student is interested in seeking help. Major bang for your buck deal with this college.

    Tips? If you are having trouble in any courses, use the resources available to you! There are labs for almost all, if not for all of the main courses. If there isn't one you need, make sure to speak up to your professors. If they cannot help you themselves, they will direct you to someone who can.

    It depends on the time one has classes at Miami Dade. If you have morning and afternoon classes, it's pretty safe. However, I would be more careful during night classes.

    Some classes are just plain easy. Some classes are difficult, depending on your strengths and weakness, and depending on the specialty of the class. However, there are also the classes that are usually in-between, which are good for learning!

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend for prospective students to not skip or fall asleep in class. Every class is important. I also recommend that you do the homework, take notes, and, if the professor says it's a requirement, try to read the textbook. Most of the time, the grades fall hard on the homework and attendance. Always check the quality of the class by checking the quality of the professor on RateMyProfessor.com!

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be fooled for your environment. Take charge in your life, as hard as it may seem. Because words won't describe the feeling of your life eventually leading you for your very own life. Stay informed... but more importantly, keep pushing.

    In three sentences

    More than a transitional school, Miami Dade will open your eyes to possibilities you thought you wouldn't reach. How? By reaching out to your resources on campus, you'll soon notice that the sky really is the limit. The key is to keep an open mind that Dade constantly delivers, you're not a finished product. All campus staff is there for you, to tell you they've been where you've been before. Not only so, they let you know how far you can go, if you really want it. Best of it all is the lack of pressure during the process. Sure, you could turn a blind eye to all. Yet, the essence of the school is mainly if you really would want that for your future.

    Soon the price of going to college is not even going to be worth it if tuition and fees keep raising the way they do. in less the 10 years a class that costed $55 now costs on average $466 about 800% increase, and yet that's still cheaper than many universities out there.

    Food and Dining

    There is not a variety of foods at miami dade college, and the food court is tiny in some campuses. luckily there are many food store all local to some miami dade campuses.

    Academic Rigor

    Some professors go easy when grading and some are extremely harsh. But over all if you want to learn then do your research and study hard. And some professors are hard to understand because of their ascents and others can communicate very very well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your best to be informed by asking other students, you'll save a lot of time. Use online sites to find what professor best suites your learning abilities. And save the financial aid and use it for future classes not just like shoes and cloth.

    In three sentences

    Miami-Dade College does have flexibility when it comes down to choosing the right that best suites you. Advisers are not all that good when choosing a professor, your better off looking for in other online websites. Miami Dade College is has one of the easiest place to get to since all the buses, trains and metro movers verge into one location that is near the school.

The college has a warm and friendly staff and support staff and the advisers are extremely helpful, they get straight to the point and do not veer from their objective: to help guide the student to success in their preferred career choice through choosing their major wisely and getting the correct classes and accommodating the schedule to the individual student.

    The security officers are always on duty at the school. I alwasys feel safe walking to my car at night after a late class because I always see an officer on duty; whether its a real police officer or school security.

    What to do for fun

    Sometimes at the school they would have activities during a holiday and play loud music and games. Rarley they would also give out free food.

    Food and Dining

    There are a couple places to eat at Dade but I dont recommend it. If you have an hour or two to spare, I recommend going across the street to wendys where you can get a 10% off discount for showing your school id. Dont get me wrong, the food is good, I just dont think its worth what you pay for.

    Dorm Life

    No Dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    There is alot of help you can get from the school. There are many places to go such as the library that contains a math lab with professors to help you out with any questions or lessons you dont understand.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always come to class prepared and ask alot of questions if you dont know. The teachers at Dade love to see a student follow up with them and know what there talking about. In the end they benifit you alot whether in grades or knowledge.

    Campus Safety

    It depends on the campus you are on. Some require more saftey precautions than others but all are pretty safe.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is not the primary focus point of the college but it is present. PTK, PBL, and maybe two or three more are present at Interamerican. Other campuses have a wider variety of Greek life though.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs but only around ten or fifteen are actually active. Although not many are active, the ones that are do an amazing job and are always trying new ideas and experiences that add to curriculum like conferences and college trips. There is not a lot of space for big activities. We usually visit the other campuses which are pretty close to do our activites or simply attend.

    Great for these types of students

    Students with new ideas, like starting projects, enjoy being surroudned by the latin community, like small campuses.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Personally, I can speak of the Interamerican Campus which is the campus I attend. The latin community and the Latin traditions are very common on this campus. When I say traditions I focus more on foods that surround the campus and the people who attend here. It is located just next to Little Havannah with makes the cuban population extremely popular.

    Bang for the buck

    Interamerican is a very small campus. One of the smallest in fact. Although some may see it as a disadvantage, I see it as an advantage. It is easier to get to classes, it is simpler to get information and it makes people bump more into eachother making it something like an intimate college since is not a huge amount of students that attend it.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of activities for students year long. Clubs are the main organizers of events and are usually active. Depending on what you get yourself into, you will be either reaaly busy or have the day all to yourself.

    Food and Dining

    depending on the campus you are on you have different options. Almost all campuses have cultural areas close and have good restaurants around.

    Dorm Life

    There is absolutely no dorm life in MDC.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes at MDC are not rigorous to die for. They are simple classes and are created to take students by the hand in certain aspects. you will have to work and you are completely responsible of your assignments and responsabilities as a whole but there is also a lot of help that will always guide you to finishing that class with good grades or understanding you classes. Younever know what what or who might inspire you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make realistic short goals. You will probably go to MDC in search to either learn a new language, to get your education cheaper, or to prepare your grades and curriculum to jump to a better university after not doing so well in high school. Take this opportunity serious and be responsible about your classes, It doesnt take much to get high grades -if you really want it. Search around for opportunities, go to college activities, join clubs, PARTICIPATE in clubs and you will see how doors begin to open.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College is a trampolin for greatness. This college gives you the oportunities to take the requirments needes to reach out and jump to higher lands.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is super safe. There are always security guards and police officers around (but not a ton--it's not overwhelming or creepy). There is a sign in every classroom with the Campus Safety number you can call if you ever see anything suspicious or feel unsafe.

    Greek Life

    None.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are some sports teams to get involved in and a gym and a pool (at least on my campus) too. At the beginning of each semester there is a Wednesday for Club Rush where you can walk around and get to know a little about every club on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Miami Dade College is great for students who like small classroom environments and a more personal college experience. It's great for those who liked the structure of high school but crave a little more freedom before the jump into a university. It's great for those who are going back to school after being away for a while too.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Sometimes the activities on campus are pretty fun, like chalk art across the entire outdoor area or painting glass windows for different holidays.

    Bang for the buck

    The vending machines have good deals and printing in the Computer Courtyard is really cheap.

    What to do for fun

    Go to the bookstore or the library and rent a laptop.

    Food and Dining

    My campus has a cafeteria and a Koffeehouse (yes, spelled with a K). Both are good places to eat at, but can sometimes be kinda pricy. The Koffeehouse is more of a casual atmosphere with more snack-like foods and the cafeteria has some snacks but more meal-like foods.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at Miami Dade College. I heard if you're an athlete and get a scholarship there, you may have nearby housing provided for you, but I would call the campus and ask.

    Academic Rigor

    It really depends on your professor and the subject. I know people who barely slept when they took Intro to Psychology (PSY2012), but I know my class was a joke. My professor barely taught us anything. It depends.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Ask a current or past student to help you get situated around campus and how to navigate through the website. 2. Register for classes as soon as you are able to. 3. Purchase your books before classes start if you think they will be necessary. Your textbooks and other necessary materials (access codes, calculators, binders, etc.) can be purchased at your campus bookstore. All you need is your schedule and a bookstore employee can help you get what you need. 4. Be in contact with your adviser, especially if you feel really lost. 5. Don't miss class! After 3 absences you can be dropped from your course! 6. Take advantage of the personal help you can get in the labs like the Math Lab, Writing Lab, Speech Lab, etc.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is great as their are cameras being monitored all across campus by security officials and there are security officers constantly patrolling the campus to ensure everyone's safety.

    Greek Life

    No Greek Life that I know of.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a plethora of clubs to choose from such as P.T.K, S.G.A, and the National Honors Society. There are clubs for varying interests so that everyone can participate in something they truly enjoy. Plus, each club allows you to take part in helping the community in any way possible which is always great.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students that want to engage themselves in a challenging yet welcoming environment for the opportunity to make it into a desired institution elsewhere in the future. Also, great for open students that are eager to meet new people and venture to different locations across the globe.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    At Miami Dade College there are many sculptures throughout the campus made by former students that have won awards that can be seen when walking around campus. They are all very unique and exquisite which makes it a worthwhile sight for everyone.

    Bang for the buck

    There is definitely Bang for the Buck, at the Honors College because it opens up so many opportunities in the future for relatively little to no cost as tuition is free. Attending this program can help you attend other great schools as long as the determination to excel is there.

    What to do for fun

    They are constantly notifying students of school-wide events that will be taking place. Furthermore, there are plenty of clubs to join to keep yourself involved and engaged with the school such as S.G.A and National Honors Society. There is also a gym and pool on campus open to all students.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Miami Dade College is definitely an upgrade over cafeteria food from high school. They have plenty more options to choose from and the food feels fresher than regular cafeteria food. In addition, there is a coffee shop on campus to get all kinds of drinks like lattes or cappuccinos. If nothing there satisfies then there are many places to choose from close by such as Chijis, Dunk n' Donuts, Fuddruckers, and more.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorms at Miami Dade College.

    Academic Rigor

    My review is based off the Honors College as that is what I am attending and I have heard from former and current students that it can be very time consuming and at times extremely challenging. They spoke of times in which they had to stay up all night in order to complete assignments or finish studying.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get a good night's rest every night to avoid being tired during class. Also, study hard because hard work pays off and this is an investment in your future. Finally, do not be shy or timid when in need of asking questions because you will regret it later on.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College is an exceptional community college that grants great education for any field of study. It also gives incoming students a great sense of family atmosphere as campus officials constantly repeat the terms of family in front of their students.

    Campus Safety

    The campus safety is remarkable considering the substantial amount of students currently attending the college. At Miami Dade College no one is looking to stir up trouble...on the contrary people tend to express compassion to others even strangers! The campus I attend has several security guards stationed around the area just in case an incident were to occur. When I asked one of them about the campus security he told me it was very rare to have an incident occur in the campus because the students are simply trying to pave their future and tend to avoid any nonsense.

    Clubs and Activities

    Miami Dade College has numerous clubs and activities available to students. Whether you want to become a politician or an engineer there will be a club that fills your interests. In these clubs you perform various tasks that are very enjoyable for the members because it is something they are interested in doing. On Wednesdays from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm alumni are allowed to visit their clubs and attend meetings to organize and conduct activities. Various community service activities are also available through clubs or individually through the school which can sometimes be a learning experience as well as an enjoyable one.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is perfect for students who are open to new ideas and willing to listen to other people because many people will have answers to your questions and you have to be willing to allow them to share their knowledge with you. If you plan on going out of state then this school can also provide a nurturing experience for you due to the diversity within the campus that will make you accustomed to different people and cultures that will allow you to easily adapt to other surroundings once you transfer to another school. Students who want to transfer to another school will find this school to be a great destination for them as it opens multiple doorways to other schools that rank among the top of the United States.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Throughout the campus many unique and extremely well crafted sculptures reside to show the tremendous artistic abilities of the artist at Miami Dade pursuing at art major. It is also tradition to invite visitors who are acquainted with the college and can share some insight and knowledge into our major of choice or simply some tips on how to tackle college. I hope to learn of more traditions during my stay at Miami Dade College.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade College opens a gateway to many different possibilities. Students are barraged with a profusion of information during their stay at Miami Dade College and it is up to them to decide what they want to do with that information. From the staff to the alumni, everyone is looking out for one another and want to see you succeed. In my first orientation one of the sophomores told us that he would stay up to 3:00 am helping other students with chemistry although it would deprive him of some sleep. The teachers come from all parts of the world and offer first class education to all students. Cultural diversity is also one of the most intriguing aspects of the college as most students are from other parts of the world and it serves for an amazing involvement in experiencing all these cultures.

    What to do for fun

    At Miami Dade College you may join several sports teams that include the football and basketball team. There are also a plethora of clubs to choose from including National Honors Society, Math Honors Society, P.T.K, and student government in which you can join and have the opportunity to perform tasks that are based on your interests. Many community service activities are also offered and can be based on something similar to your major of choice which can prove to be beneficial to both sides as you will be gaining firsthand experience at something you want to do. For those who are fond of reading, the library is open and filled with a large amount of literary works that attracts the interest of any reader. A gymnasium and pool are also open for those who want to maintain a healthy fitness level.

    Food and Dining

    Miami Dade College has a wide variety of foods to choose from at the cafeteria as compared to most high schools. There are also plenty of drinks to choose from and the college also contains a Deli that serves sandwiches and other delicious treats. Occasionally, there will be a few stands around the campus that serve ice cold drinks like lemonade and fruit punch for anyone who desires it. If you are not fond of any of the food being served you may drive to one of the many restaurants located in the area around Miami Dade College in between your classes.

    Dorm Life

    Miami Dade College currently has no dorms as it is a community college.

    Academic Rigor

    Miami Dade College offers some of the best professors in the country who will try to work with you if a class becomes to difficult. You will receive a certain amount of work based on your course's level but you may feel free to ask your professors any questions you may have and they will be more than happy to assist. Although you are encouraged to take as many courses as possible, you have the power to choose your own schedule and you may choose to take a few courses if you are currently too busy or to avoid stressing yourself out. Miami Dade Honors College is a small group of special students who will carry a heftier load than the average alumni at Miami Dade. These students must maintain a 3.5 GPA while attending the college as well as taking twice as many courses or more than that of the other students attending the college.

    Tips for prospective students

    One tip for any prospective student is to be open to suggestions while at Miami Dade College because the staff and your peers will constantly try to assist you and you need to be open to advice because they may have more experience in what they are talking about than you currently have. Another important tip I want to share is to visit the campus multiple times before starting your term to become better acquainted with the locations of important offices and buildings. Furthermore, students should apply to the excellent honors program which offers great transfer opportunities. Lastly, if you can I recommend you schedule a meeting with the President and Director of the campus to get to know them better as they will be very important to you during your journey at Miami Dade.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College from what I have witnessed thus far is an exceptional school filled with people willing to offer aid to anyone who desires it. Although there are several campuses, each are considered part of the same family and each campus has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere to any new attending students. Miami Dade College is also filled with amazing staff and professors that offer quality education to any aspiring alumni.

    The school has many clubs and activities. One I personally know is Phi Theta Kapa (PTK) Honor Society. This club has hosted bake sales to dances at our college. Miami Dade has lots to offer, students just have to want to get involved. Students can find out more information about clubs and activities to get involved with in Student Life which is located in the Koffee House.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are the type of student that enjoys quiet places to study or needs any help with written assignments, the perfect place on campus to check out is the Writing Center.

The Writing Center also provides two study rooms which are places which students can have a group project meeting in or just a quiet isolated area.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms here but there is student life. There are ways of meeting people and interacting with others. Join a sport or a club. Take advantage of greeting others in class and you will see how many different people you can meet.

    Academic Rigor

    Miami-Dade is not as tough as UM may be, but it is not easy either. Students need to focus and complete assignments in order to pass classes. You need to put time and effort in order to attain the results you would be proud of having. Just like any other school, you get what you put into it.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you arrive, make sure to bring a positive attitude and expect to work. The more you dedicate to your studies, the more you get out of them. Take advantage of your professors and the resources available at school. Get involved and live the College experience you've wanted to but always stay focused on the future. This is the road that is needed to take to advance and achieve your goals and dreams.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade is the first College I have attended and I have absolutely loved being a student here.

    Dorm Life

    I can't say anything about it since I lived with my parents the whole time I went to MDC.

    Academic Rigor

    You do not need to be Einstein to get and stay at MDC but you do have to do your work. You can be lucky and have a super cool easy professor but you could also have a super rigorous one. In any of the cases you simply need to assist to class, do your work and you will be good. Just don't be lazy.

    Tips for prospective students

    Advising is very important. Do not go to a general adviser only, they are not prepared to help you with details of your career, especially if it's not a common career. Search who is your career adviser and pay him/her a visit at least once per semester. There are great professors at MDC and they want to help you succeed. Let them help you. Be open minded: MDC is a multicultural school, and keeping your mind open will help you greatly to learn about life in general, you just got to pay attention and connect classroom lecture with real life scenarios.

    the academic rigor is very tuff. I advise any one that's interested in attending school and receiving financial aid to be really cautious on how you select your classes. you have to be very persistent with keeping your grades up because if you refuse, financial aid would have no sympathy for you and would deny you for any additional funds for the upcoming semester. I am suffering from this right now.

    Tips for prospective students

    stay motivated and positive. always believe deep down inside that anything is possible if you work for it, really want it with a deep passion, and strive. as tuff as times may get, never ever give up. anything is possible if you believe and achieve. be ambitious.

    This is a strict academic school. They don't play, either you do what you have to or you get out. With that being said they aren't necessarily the toughest classes either, but remember it all has to do with the teacher you get so my suggestion is to go on ratemyteacher.com and learn about the professor.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you decide to attend Miami-Dade remember to maintain a good GPA. Its important to stay on task and to make the best experience out of it. This isn't a party school and people aren't going to be buddy , buddy with you in class, so don't be that person to disrupt class. If you do this you'll do fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get all your admissions requirements done early , several friends of mine and myself have had complications , because the school did not receive them or did not process them correctly. Also , do all of your financial aid paper work at the school , doing it online may seem easier , but I had to submit it online four times and it still didn't work , so I had to personally do it at the financial aid office ; many students have this same issue.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety at Miami Dade College is above standards! I have never heard of or experienced any incidents at the college in the time I have been there. It remains controlled and quiet and there are always security guards walking around and making sure things are in order.

    Great for these types of students

    Miami Dade College is ideal for students who need to work or have other responsibilities that they have to take care of. Many students I know have 2-4 classes on top of work and they manage it just fine. Miami Dade is good for those who still need time to figure out where they want to go and be able to earn their A.A. debt-free!

    Academic Rigor

    Miami Dade College has challenged me to learn and to grow especially in the class room. All of my teachers have challenged us to take the more rigorous academic path instead of opting for easy so that we will always be at the top of our education! Miami Dade also has a very well-known and prestigious Honor's College with many benefits for those who make it in!

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking to attend Miami Dade College start early, especially if you are coming out of high school! It takes time to process your applications and get the forms you need so don't wait! In the meantime go to Financial Aid to see how much aid you qualify for and speak with an advisor to discuss the scholarships you may be eligible for!

    Miami Dade is a great launching point for students who aren't 100% ready for the whole away from home university experience or for those just looking to stay local, but the student body can be less than ambitious at times and you have to shrug that vibe off even when you are surrounded by it. The campus is humongous and dull the architecture is whatever, but the teachers for the most part that I have experienced are great and are as dedicated as their students. As long as the students apply themselves I feel like Miami Dade is the epitome of generalized education and anybody can succeed here, but if a specialized hands-on approach is what you need I would not recommend this college to you.

    Campus Safety

    The Campus Safety Officers are busy dealing mostly with Homeless transients that come on campus to use the bathroom to take showers at the hand washing stations, or people who are not student but have access to the campus because the campus can be easily reached downtown where all of the transportation is centered in Miami. My experience with the Campus Safety Officers is that if you lost something at the MDC-Wolfson campus, the Campus Safety Officers will not find it. I had lost my Files, Laptop and Cap left behind and those items were missing within the span of fifteen minutes. I have also benefitted from having the Safety Officers there to prevent two transients steal my computer cart.

    MDC-Wolfson has three Greek organizations PHI BETA LAMDA, PHI THETA KAPPA and PSI BETA. PHI BETA LAMDA focuses primarily on Business majors, but seeks out other majors as well. PHI THETA KAPPA focuses mostly on Honor students and PSI BETA deals only with Psychological majors.

    Clubs and Activities

    MDC-Wolfson has many Clubs and Activities that will help boost your resume for a well-rounded student and gain exposure from school performances that include speaking engagements from famous people. Our schools has over 40 clubs that range from The Music club to the Psychology club. We constantly have plays, music performances and celebrities speakers like Wyclef Jean and Sarah Jessica Parker.

    Great for these types of students

    MDC-Wolfson is great for students who don't have a car and want to be able to use public transportation.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a building that has a strange location. The (Â?New World of Music) building is located in a building that is shared by a continuation high school. The high schools kids have there seem to have so much more heterosexual displays of flirting. The campus safety officers are everywhere and look for anything out of place. I have been stop many times to show my ID. The campus safety officer help prevent two vagrants from stealing my computer cart.

    Bang for the buck

    MDC-Wolfson is a good school because of the exposure to real life work. Their partnerships with nearby business give you a few options for internships. MDC classes are cheap; my classes were about 1,350.00 this semester and their Baccalaureate programs are only 120 percent of that, so I think you get an excellent (Bang for the Buck) value.

    What to do for fun

    MDC-Wolfson usually have special events that are held about twice a month such as musicians performing, book sell offs, comedians, and multi-cultural fares. The college is right across from the American Airline Arena, Bay-Front Park. American Airline Arena is where the World Champion Basketball team Miami Heat play. Bay -Front Park has many shopping stores, boat tours, Musicians that perform daily, a Hard Rock Cafe, and Hooters. Hooters are a place was they feature sexy waitresses as food servers.

    Food and Dining

    Miami Dade College has a culinary arts school on their campus that has their own cafeteria that serves food that the students make. There is also the outside I go to and I think that their food is a six out of ten because their afternoon menu has relatively exotic food that taste pretty good. I like their steak, with fried bananas and plantains chips (green banana chips that are fried).

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life at all of the Miami Dade College Campuses.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel like the academic rigor of moderate amount of intensity. Keep in mind that this is not high school, so there is far less flexibility than most students seemed to be ready for. There are usually about twenty percent of students that have a hard time turning in their homework or assignments in time because they have issues that get them distracted in school such as part time work, partying, or procrastination.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. If you are seeking any kind of financial aid, do not use your standard IRS forms 1040EZ or 1040A, as anymore. You need to get an IRS Tax Form 4506-T because that is the Financial Aid department will accept. 2. You will have your transcripts sent to the schools transcript office from six to eight weeks before applying to the school or your application will not be complete. The school will still let you take classes, but your application will still be incomplete and the administrators will give you a grace period that will last until the end of the first semester. You can send your transcripts to the correct address at: 11011 SW 104th Street Transcript Processing Room 3232 Miami, FL 33176-3393 3. You will need to takes what is called the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) test, which is basically a placement test that see where you are in Math and English. The PERT test will determine what your placement levels you are in English and Math. This test is mainly for the Colleges in the State of Florida.

    In three sentences

    I feel like Miami Dade College (MDC) is a better than average school because the school continues to improve their infrastructure. The downtown campus Gym has been moved to accommodate more students with state of the art equipment that can accommodate over 100 students at a time. MDC has seven campuses from stretch about twenty miles around that are interconnected to give you access to almost any Associate degree, and vocational program. MDC is under priced for its vocational and four year degree program because both program potentially give you on the job training.

    Miami Dade is a College with friendly and approachable professors. MDC cares about the large population of students(latinos) and most importantly its community. I would definitely have to say MDC is a good school, that is passionate about its students education and make the city of Miami proud.

    If you can, use Miami Dade as a back-up school if you don't get into the school you prefer. Miami Dade is not meant for students to graduate from, it is a school to give you that push to achieve an Associate's Degree, and then send you off to the school of your dreams if you are passionate and sure enough of what you want. If you aren't, Miami Dade can help you discover it.

    Tips for prospective students

    People look at Miami Dade and think it's a school for the less intelligent. However, after attending I realized that there are so many students with such a bright future. Since the college is smaller than a typical university, the classes have less students which allows the teachers to have more time per student to really teach.

    Miami Dade is a school that gives students young or old an opportunity to further their lives by providing excellent education and a large variety of degree options. Whether pursuing a 2 year or 4 year degree or simply certification, Miami Dade has it all.

    Everyone. There are older people who are trying to start a new career, new students who are trying to get a cheap A.A. Degree, people who haven't been to school in a while and are trying to get their feet wet. Miami Dade is for everyone.

    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.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are always fun activities that go along with joining clubs.

    Bang for the buck

    Miami Dade College offers a student the opportunity to pursue high education even if they do not have the money to do so. The courses cost significantly less than most other colleges and universities.

    What to do for fun

    There is a large amount of clubs Miami Dade offers.

    Food and Dining

    The Koffehouse on campus is truly overpriced, but the cafeteria offers better values.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is not applicable.

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend prospective students to prepare for the semester they will be attending Miami Dade College ahead of time. There is an abundance of students who leave important tasks for the last minute, such as financial aid. It is very easy to be set behind if one is procrastinating.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College truly is a unique college. The students are extremely diverse and, for the most part, willing to learn. The professors are very supportive of the students who try hard and are willing to work hard to pursue their academic dream.

    The best campus would be Kendall and Wolfson campus. I prefer Wolfson. There are lots of stuff to see and do downtown at Wolfson

    What to do for fun

    There is a new state of art gym that just opened, Olympic size swimming pool, basketball courts, swings to just loft around and chill, and of course my favorite the upper computer courtyard(lower level also). 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.

    In three sentences

    Overall MDC is a home close to home. There are many critics but the academic programs are some of the best offered anywhere. Not to mention the facilities far exceed expectations.

    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.

    Campus Safety

    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.

    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.

    What to do for fun

    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.

    In three sentences

    Miami Dade College's campus' architecture is unique and sophisticated, which also is a perfect way to explain the school itself. The students that attend Miami Dade are from all over the world- which also gives you a learning opportunity outside of the classroom. It is a great school with interesting professors and students.
