Posted November 01, 2018 06:28:31 When it comes to studying abroad, UMiami University is not an ideal option for anyone.
Students will be charged exorbitant fees to cover transportation costs, while the cost of books and other supplies can be as high as $2,000.
The university has also taken steps to limit student use of their campus, such as limiting campus parking, limiting students to only a couple of days per year and restricting socializing.
The university is also making efforts to limit the amount of time students spend in campus and other locations.
The University of Miami says they will be taking steps to improve student experience for students.
“We will be focusing on how we can better support students and students can have a better experience on our campus,” said UMiami Vice President of Student Affairs Jessica DeLeon in an interview with Miami Today.
DeLeon says UMiami is working to reduce the amount student-related expenses while also providing more options for students to do the things they enjoy.
“We’re not doing that to reduce student expenses, we’re doing that because we’re not getting it right at all,” DeLeon said.
UMiami is also working to limit their online experience.
While UMiami will not limit their use of the internet, they have started limiting their usage to campus, dorm rooms and shared living spaces.
UMiami’s online services will also no longer include access to campus social media platforms.
DeLeon says the university is doing a lot to reduce costs.
“If you look at what we’re offering and how it impacts our students, I think it’s really beneficial for our students,” Deleon said.
Students on campus are able to take advantage of free and discounted services, like transportation and dorm rooms.
Deleon says the cost for those services is lower than what students might pay at other institutions.
“When you’re not going to pay $2K to get from one location to another, you’re really not going anywhere,” De Leon said.
De Leon says the school has also been working to address student safety.
UMAMI is working with law enforcement agencies to make sure students are not intoxicated or have drugs in their system when they go to UMiami.
“Students who are intoxicated or on drugs, we are working to educate them,” De Leo said.
The school is also increasing the amount that students are required to pay for meals and other items.
UMIM students are being asked to purchase food and other products on their own, and are not being required to purchase a meal from the school.
De Leos says UMIM has been able to make some strides to reduce expenses, but they still have a long way to go.
“It’s a lot of work,” De Lee said.
“And it’s still early in the process, but I think we’re moving in the right direction.”
