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
  • Credentials

The beaches were beautiful and so much fun The wildlife made everything all the better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

i like the name MYX for it shows there are a myx of everything.

The MYX was a great experience for me. This semester was definitely one to remember and I'm so excited for the next one! I met amazing people and made life long friends here. The MYX was a perfect way for me to do school and still experience life! I knew i didn't want to go to traditional college even before graduating high school, it just wasn't for me.I wanted something different and this was it. I really enjoyed my time here at the MYX and wouldn't change it! I've learned so much just in this semester and i can't wait to learn more!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Cajun food! It was really good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great school with amazing people

This experience was truly life changing for me. The staff in this program are extremely supportive and are always looking to make the student experience better. I developed lots of skills to use later in the workforce while I was also completing online course work in the MYX program. I met so many amazing people not only on campus but through the experiences we had in the Miami community. One of my favorite parts of the MYX were the place based learning days. Every Wednesday we would go out somewhere in the miami area and, talk to a local expert, explore the area, try something new, and we even went kayaking right in front of the miami sky line. Overall it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I did this all over again I would take advantage of the connections I could have made at the start of the MYX. I would have left the campus more to meet people out in the community.

MYX MIAMI :)

Coming to the MYX I had no idea what God had for me in this city. I didn't have any clarity on His purpose for me being here. All I knew was He gave me supernatural peace to come. Coming to Miami, I knew I was coming to a place where I would stand out because of my faith, as it is not a faith-based program. But it has been the most enriching experience, because of that very thing. I have been able to actually put my faith into practice, in a place that isn't a Christian-school bubble. I have been exposed to my weaknesses in such a way that has strengthened me and grown me as an individual exponentially.

I leave the MYX with a deeper love for those who are different from me, culturally, spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. I also gained respect and love for myself, by God's love for me, so that I can love others as He loves them. I also leave with an immensely expanded cultural understanding of Latin culture. Finally, I leave with connections and friendships with individuals that I will cherish for a lifetime, both in Miami, and the MYX.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
CUBAN COFFEE. I never knew how incredibly good cuban food and coffee is. It blessed my life. So so so so so good. IF you come, get a Colada(black, and really strong) or Cortadito(milk and sugar).

Absolutely amazing program. Could not recommend it enough

I have loved the experience that I've had here and honestly wouldn't give it up for anything. I came to study entrepreneurship and scale a small ecommerce business that I started and I have had so much support from the faculty and students in the process. I am apart of the first-ever class of MYX and hope for the sake of future education that this program and others like it can continue to grow and be successful in order to replace the 'default' path that university has become. I have gone to both university for engineering and MYX for entrepreneurship and can't even describe how much better of a LIFE education MYX is. Thank you.

What would you improve about this program?
I would definitely have more discipline in class structure

The Myx

Myx is a great program for gap years and higher education. The faculty is amazing and so helpful. The travel aspect, where each semester you can go to a different location, along with various amounts of schooling options, allows a much more efficient way to obtain life skills, and to grow as a person. Putting yourself in new environments with like minded people, is such an amazing way to learn! Such a great alternative higher education program that is well worth. Myx is truly a family, with faculty who wants to see you succeed.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
At myx Miami, in Little Havana, there has been many times that we have eaten cuban food. It was very unfamiliar for me before i had arrived at Myx, but it is something that i have come to enjoy!
