I would like to welcome each of you to your first year at the University of Miami. This is an exciting and challenging moment in your life and a great time to be a “Hurricane!”
UM is a valued institution within our community and has been a part of Coral Gables civic life since the 1920s. While you are a student, you are also a citizen of this city and we care about your welfare. I encourage you to take full advantage of all the wonderful opportunities this collegiate institution has to offer you and the cultural opportunities within our downtown. I also welcome you to discover the surrounding neighborhoods and attractions this city has to offer such as Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens, Miracle Mile, Actors’ Playhouse, Matheson Hammock Park and Venetian Pool.
Once again “welcome” and “Go Canes!”
Mayor of Coral Gables
