Campus Tour: Yes - Beautiful campus, fantastic facilities, and a comprehensive tour-guide. The great weather was a plus too!
Classroom Visit: Yes - Again, kind of - I got to peek into classrooms with my tour guide, but I didn't get to sit in on one. Everything is fairly modern and clean!

Campus Visit Notes for University of Miami
I had the opportunity to plan out my visit with an admissions officer, so I got to do a bunch of things. I met with the manager of undergraduate marine science - not an interview, just an info meeting. She was sweet and so helpful! I went on a personal tour of the campus - everyone was out and about and I loved the feel of it (I just had to watch out for the skateboarders!). Homecoming had just occurred so there was a lot of 'Cane spirit still on display.
I also got to meet with an admissions officer - he basically just asked me for my questions; it was very casual and informative. Then he took my mum and I out to lunch at the dining hall - great food (especially the froyo!). Again, very casual, and I had a great time.

Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Checked out a few Miami touristy spots - Cocowalk in Coconut Grove and the Bayside Marketplace in downtown Miami. Cocowalk was a letdown (small, few shops) but Marketplace was really cool.
