MYX, the future of higher education

MYX

About

MYX offers students the opportunity to earn college credits and define their goals in life, all while traveling the world, building skills, creating real-world projects, and being guided towards success in their next steps.

Our MYX Houses are located in Miami, Costa Rica and Europe, inspiring students to find their purpose through a curriculum that turns the world into your classroom. MYX is designed for students who learn hands-on and want to build skills/experience, rather than those traditional programs that rely on textbooks and lecture halls. Learning is personalized to each student, with some pursuing degrees, others certifications, and others college credit.

With each campus limited to 150 students and faculty, our cohorts describe themselves as family, and MYX places a huge emphasis on community. Outside of the mentorship and networking that happens on-site, each student is also paired with a life coach who helps them discover what the next goals will be and how to get there.

the future of higher ed

Myx was life changing for me. Not only did I gain an amazing family, but I also completed multiple certifications and landed an internship. Myx definitely highlights the importance of making connections and exploration. I feel that over the course of the past 2 semesters I have grown more than I can even begin to explain. Myx has provided so many new adventures as well as an amazing team of people that I know I can reach out to at any point in life. I was able to find my true passions without wasting thousands of dollars switching majors.

Pros
  • Travel
  • Family
  • Internship

My second Semester, still the best decision I ever made.

I went to MYX last semester to study entrepreneurship. This semester I came to Costa Rica to study Social Media Marketing and have landed my dream job after building up my portfolio and completing an amazing project in lead generation with the help of the MYX team. After this semester is over I'll be traveling around the world doing full-funnel marketing and I'm so excited. The MYX team has supported me through the whole thing and given me the credentials I need to make it happen. I couldn't recommend this program enough.

Pros
  • Travel
  • Hands on learning

The MYX- An opportunity not to be missed!!

I am a parent of two students who were pioneers in this incredible GAP year education program. I have two very different students, 21 and 18, a boy and a girl who have very different education and career goals. One had been through three years of a traditional University and one who just graduated High School.
My first thought with this program was that it was too good to be true! Incredibly it was even better than my expectations and it just keeps getting better. Research it for yourself!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Research, ask questions, be ready for life change!

MYX Review

I cannot recommend it enough. I feel people right of of high school would benefit IMMENSELY from this. The biggest benefit I have seen from the others apart of the program is them finding out what they DO NOT want to learn. They come into MYX with an idea of what they want to study at college or what they "want to do with their life", they take some classes and gain some experience in the field, and then realize that they do not like it as much as they thought they would. We then talk about what is meaningful to us in life, and from there you can change your classes and test out a new field of study. It is honestly amazing.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Come in with an open mind. Meet as many people as you can, and truly interact with the staff as much as possible. Their expertise, knowledge, and network of connections is insane. Use it.
