3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The class options were good I guess. I just wish there weren't so many required courses (Miami Plan).

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My degree is in architecture, and right now its very hard to get an entry-level job as an architect. So it's kind of hard to judge the value of my degree.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: There are an overwhelming number of food options to chose from dispersed around the campus. However, you can end up getting stuck going to the same places once you get into your day-to-day routine. It's up to you to venture out.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The campus is beautiful especially during the summer, fall, and spring. This is due to the surplus of open green spaces and trees, and the style of architecture; there's a huge amount of consistency in the architecture.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarships were not hard to apply for; however, Miami does not offer large amounts of financial aid to people with sufficient wealth.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus Dining is awesome at Miami University. Not only are there tons of restaurants within walking distance from campus, but there is a really wide diversity of food. I've found this to be a rarity. Where most campuses have fast food chains all over, fast food at Miami University is a little further off campus. This helps locally owned businesses and restaurants to flourish. Student discounts are great. A few places to check out would be The Quarter Barrel, which is a great locally owned, decently priced, and flavorful restaurant!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love the quality of the courses I've taken at Miami University. The professors have all been really good, but there are always a few tough ones you'll have to get past. The courses I've taken have helped me grow in an amazingly intellectual way. I'm a Chemical Engineering major so I've taken some tough classes, but the things I've learned and the way I've learned them have been incredible.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A lot of employers consider Miami University to be one of the best schools you can attend. Internship opportunities are always available. My major's employment rate out of college is 100%. That is simply incredible. I didn't even think a statistic like that was possible, but I guess there are a lot of things that could surprise you about Miami University. We have big companies holding internship workshops and information seminars very frequently.

Local Atmosphere: Miami University is a great school to attend. From the very second you drive into campus you will know you've picked a great place to attend school. The scenery is fantastic; the tall trees and beautiful buildings will leave you with a great feeling. My favorite part of attending Miami University is walking across campus to and from classes. The scenery is great and you can walk everywhere with ease. Just off campus there are a ton of unique restaurants/bars and stores. There is always something happening on or near campus whether it be festivals or other exciting activities.Even though our sports teams aren't the best there is a lot of school spirit and we cheer them on anyways! I've encountered a lot of locals through my years and they all have been very nice. They've decided to stay and make Oxford their home because of the beautiful lives this area facilitates.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is not a huge amount of diversity on campus but there are those groups on campus working hard to change that.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: My major does not offer many internship or research opportunities. Also the opportunities, available do not fit with the goals I have for my degree.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: There were no special hoops to jump through to get into the zoology program.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing on Miami Campus is good if not slightly old in its design.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have some scholarships for college but not nearly enough to keep me from worrying about continuing my education.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't attend many of the bars or parties but i've heard good and bad things.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is not a huge emphasis on sports because the teams are average at best except for our hockey team.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Oxford is a very small town, but does its best to keep things clean, safe, and exciting for the residents and the students.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've never lived off campus but I have heard that it is a challenge and competition if fierce.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Miami students tend to have a specific image they strive for. This image includes, skinny, sporty, party-goers, drinkers, recreational drug users, one-night stands with strangers, okay academics, preppy, and rich.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Many of the professors i've seen are dedicated to encouraging the students to work smarter and not harder. Some even shape the way they teach differently in an attempt to help the students understand concepts by looking at the big picture and working their way down to the specifics and explaining how multiple concepts fit together.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Because the zoology program has been lumped in with the micro-bio, biology, and botany programs, the specific opportunities for strictly zoological studies is rare or non-existent.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My program is very fulfilling and the faculty is so helpful

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

There’s an old saying that goes, “You can make a big school small, but you can’t make a small school big.” The overall experience at Miami University is different for every student, but most seem to have enjoyed their time here, and most will agree that the former part of this statement is representative of Miami. Miami is not a huge school, but it is large enough to feel like a big university without being overwhelming. It is essential to find a niche when you arrive; otherwise, you may get lost in the shuffle. One of the best ways to determine if you will like Miami is to take into consideration what is important to you in a school and to really weigh your options. Visit the campus and ask questions—this is the next four or five years of your life. If Miami does not fulfill an important need you have, it probably isn’t the school for you, and there are people here who feel like they don’t belong.

Nobody enjoys school 100 percent of the time, but the students at Miami have a plethora of options, both social and academic, at their doorsteps. At Miami, you cannot be afraid to try new things, talk to new people, or grow as an individual. However, this is true no matter where you decide to attend college. Overall, the most important fact to take away from this guide is that most students feel that they made the right decision in attending Miami.
