Miami was first settled in 1825, and in 1896 had a population of just over 1,000 people. The population of the entire metropolitan area today, however, is over 5.5 million. A significant amount of growth occurred in the second half of the 20th century when immigrants relocated to Miami from Cuba and numerous Caribbean islands. These cultures have had a huge influence on Miami, which is sometimes called the most Latin city in the world north of Mexico. The art, the food and the way of life in general in Miami is largely due to these different ethnicities coming together in one city.

There are a great variety of things to do while studying in Miami. Students can go to the beach after class, to South Beach, Lummus, or Haulover Beach Park; visit Little Havana for a taste of Cuban culture; or go to Miami Beach for some of the best shopping. Sports enthusiasts have plenty to do, with more than 40 golf courses in the area and many city sport teams to support, including the Miami Dolphins in the NFL, the Miami Heat in the MBA, and the Florida Panthers hockey team.

Miami has a unique Art Deco culture with the world’s largest collection of Art Deco buildings, many of which are over 100 years old. There is also a wide range of music- and arts-oriented activity, facilitated by the Miami City Ballet, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, and the New World Symphony Orchestra. A number of festivals are hosted in Miami every year, including the Miami International Film Festival, the Carnaval Miami, and the Coconut Grove Arts Festival.

For anyone who loves the outdoors, the South Florida region has over 500 public parks, and miles of paths for running, biking, and walking. There are two national parks within proximity to Miami: the flooded wetland of the Everglades National Park and the islands and coral reefs of Biscayne National Park. Students coming to study in Miami can also visit the city of Fort Lauderdale just to the north of Miami or the Florida Keys islands to the south. 

The diverse culture and tropical climate creates an excellent environment for students to experience new things while studying in Miami.
