4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are a lot of options, and with the meal plan discount they are pretty affordable

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not the place for me, but if you want to join Greek life, don't really care about school that much, and want to go to a lot of fun parties in college, you'll love it

Diversity: Everyone here is White, Christian, and upper-middle-class.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: You can probably find a pretty crazy party somewhere on or near campus every night of every week, all year round.

1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is nothing to do anywhere except get drunk.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Very cold in the winter and hot in the summer...temperate climate

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The newer dorms are great places to live, but the old ones are disgusting. Fortunately, the school is in the process of gutting and renewing all of them.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The standard for merit based scholarships is easy to meet

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: This is a Greek school. If you don't join Greek life, you receive the title of "GDI," which stands for "god-damned independent," and anyone wearing letters probably looks down on you.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is probably not a single person on this campus that has not taken part in some kind of underage or illegal activity.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of apartments that rent to students around campus, but most people rent houses and name them.

1 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: No one cares about anything you do here. People rarely get in trouble for substances or alcohol, and you can do pretty much anything you want in your dorm without anyone caring. The only thing this campus is strict about is parking - you will go broke paying parking tickets.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Professors are very invested in education and really care about you doing well in the class - but not necessarily learning. The focus is all on getting a job, and not necessarily skills.

4 College Freshman

Majors: College of Arts and Sciences is easy to get into. However the Farmer School of Business is pretty picky. If you aren't directly admitted to it, it's hard to get in.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The only thing to do at this college is get wasted. Walking alone at night is not very safe, because there are drunk people everywhere, rape is everywhere, and sometimes fraternity brothers get together in big groups to beat people up, mug them, etc. During the day I feel very safe, but as soon as the sun goes down and the bars open you should probably stick with a group.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Football team sucks but the hockey team isn't bad. No one goes to football games, but hockey games are pretty popular. A lot of people have school spirit, but not really for sports other than hockey. There are a lot of intramural and club sports with a fair amount of participation.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Not very many computers to use around campus - most people have laptops. If you buy your laptop through the school, you get free tech support. There is wireless all over campus, but it's not the most reliable. All the classrooms are well-equipped with technology.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are maybe 15 restaurants around campus, and they're all on the same street.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Classes are easy and homework is manageable. Doesn't feel like learning any useful skills though

3 College Freshman

Transportation: BCRTA buses are "free" - cost included in student fees is ridiculous. They can take you most places you want to go, but the schedules change and some of the routes are very inconvenient (for example, you can only go to Walmart after 7pm).

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is a very small town. Middle of no where. it is just okay.



Uptown has a few stores.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Definitely call ahead if you want appointment

3 College Freshman

Athletics: No one goes to football games. I expected hockey to be huge, but not many students attend games

4 College Freshman

Weather: Warmer than my home town. Overall, fairly mild with change of seasons.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Hard to meet people at bars cause it is so loud. House parties are better.

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.
