Fun Facts

  • Tough guys Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Sylvester Stallone both attended the University of Miami.
  • Located in the sunny state of Florida, the University of Miami's school colors (not so shockingly) represent the orange tree: green for the leaves, white for the blossoms, and orange for the duh.
  • Housed in the University of Miami's on-campus Sports Hall of Fame, you'll find an authentic Seminole war canoe, hand carved and painted by tribes people, and gifted to the school on behalf of the city of Hollywood, Florida, in 1955.
