Letter from Lionel Moise

lionel_moiseTo Our New ‘Canes:

First and foremost, congratulations and welcome to the University of Miami! You are about to begin what will be some of the greatest years of your lives!

From this point on, you are and forever will be a part of the Hurricane family. The University community is very excited to welcome the greatest class to ever enter UM. The next few years will be an amazing journey and I urge you to take advantage of all the University has to offer.

As a university, we are continuing to rise rapidly among the rankings, which can be attributed to the quality of faculty, students and terrific vision of President Shalala. There are new facilities and resources continuously being constructed and an ever-growing variety of co-curricular activities that I encourage you to get involved with right away!

You will get to witness the diversity UM has to offer through the Orientation program and our annual Canefest where over 260 student organizations will be on showcase. You will attend your first football game at Land Shark Stadium and learn the amount of pride we take in our Orange and Green! So start practicing the alma mater and get ready to see some of UM’s greatest traditions as soon as you step foot on our beautiful Coral Gables campus.

Our undergraduate years will fly by so take advantage of every moment. Find your niche and get involved in organizations and causes that interest you. Remember, this experience is what YOU make it! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions throughout the year or even before you arrive. My email address is Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Go ‘Canes,

Lionel Moise
