MADE@Miami Conference

The MADE@Miami Conference is a two-day experience for first-year students who are ready to make the most out of Miami.

August 20-22, 2019

The MADE@Miami conference is designed to help you get the most out of your Miami experience. We promote qualities valued by the university community—Mentoring, Achievement, Diversity, and Excellence. The MADE@Miami conference is open to all entering first-year undergraduate students, historically underrepresented populations or those who have a commitment to promoting a deeper understanding of and appreciation for diversity. Students representing different ethnic/racial, sexual orientation and gender identity, socioeconomic backgrounds, and/or who have been identified as GRADU8 or Bridges Scholars are encouraged to apply. Students interested in attending the LSAMP Early Arrival Program must also apply to the MADE@Miami Conference. Students receiving Miami Access Initiative and the Cincinnati Scholars scholarship are also strongly encouraged to apply.

  • Mentoring: Meet students, faculty, and staff who can guide you.
  • Achievement: Get resources to help you succeed academically.
  • Diversity: Learn about your fellow classmates and where you come from.
  • Excellence: Find out how to make the most of your time at Miami.

Meet other first-year students from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds. Meet faculty and staff who will serve as informal mentors during the academic year. As a benefit to attending the MADE@Miami conference, you will be able to move into your residence hall (the same room you will have for the whole year) early. Commuter students are invited to join us as well!

Information on how to apply is sent to admitted students on May 1. To access the MADE@Miami Conference application, you must log into your Applicant Status page. This is the same location you logged into to apply for Miami as well as see your Admission decision online.

Decisions on acceptance for the MADE @ Miami Pre-Semester program will take place in mid July. You should expect to have ample information regarding acceptance inclusive of details on move in at this point.
