Blair Betts

Assistant Director

Counselor for students in: Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah



About Me:
I was raised in Pennsylvania and attended California University of Pennsylvania and the University of Pittsburgh. Since moving to Miami I’ve been inspired to start a balcony garden and join a dragon boat racing team..

Why UM?
A high school student should consider UM because of the diversity and opportunities the University offers our students. UM is truly a unique place to be.

What is your favorite place on campus?
My favourite place on campus is the campus itself, which I often describe as being a tropical garden. Walking to and from work each day is such a pleasant experience (except when it's raining) because the campus is so beautiful.

What advice would you give a high school student applying to UM?
My advice to applicants is to try to take both the SAT and ACT if possible. I suggest taking two tests junior year and one in September or October of senior year. I also recommend that students continue taking challenging courses throughout their four years of high school.
