5 College Sophomore

Academics: In my major there are a variety of opportunities that can be found but there are even more that are presented to you.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining are great and deliver late in order to cater to the college lifestyle.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: We have state-of-the-art facilities that are always conveniently available.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: There's always something to do on campus! You have to actually try to be bored lol!

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is ideal for a college town. The major of Oxford's inhabitants are students and the one's that aren't are still friendly. It's a safe place with little crime. There's always something going on which is surprising considering the size of the town. Saturday and Sunday afternoons in Oxford are the best. Families and students walking Uptown going to lunch or lounging in the park. And there's nothing like a Friday or Saturday night. What is a family-friendly town during the day turns into party central at night.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge deal- basically everyone does it.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is relatively safe on campus, however there are not many resources for after a sexual assault

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Not diverse at all. Everyone is white

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's strange that you have to sign for a house or apartment two years in advance if you want a good one.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I love how the meal plan is set up as actual money. There are plenty of options, however things arnt open very late.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Drug use and underage drinking are not allowed, but it is not very strictly enforced. Parking is the main thing that is enforced.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Besides hockey, no one cares about the sports

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Miami is great on campus, and Uptown has fun nightlife, good food, and some shops but other than that it is directly in the middle of nowhere. This never bothered me though, there is plenty to do Uptown that you don't need anything else.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had a terrible roommate experience and the housing staff did not fulfill their promised plans. It was a horrible experience.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The most exciting and unique part of my school, to me, is the major that I added to Marketing called Interactive Media Studies. This major is not available at many schools and I think the program Miami offers for it will set me apart in the growing media world.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Miami is a gorgeous campus. Beautiful green quads, extremely clean and well kept. There are plenty of places to eat, study and hangout.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid multiple times and did not receive it. I am still dealing with it and I am done with my first year

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I truly love the people that go to Miami. I believe we all want to learn and become something more than what we started off as and it is truly a blessing. Yes, we do dress preppy, but trust me... we all pull the occasional sweatshirt and such!

College Senior

Greek Life: I have my own views on the greek system. I am greek affiliated and believe it has shaped me into the person I am today, introducing me to wonderful people as well as giving me opportunities to grow as an individual.

4 College Senior

Majors: With my Special education major, I have had great experience in the classroom. I believe Miami has a strong hold on preparing students as well as having the opportunity for students to receive jobs and internships. I have not had an internship but I have had summer jobs and field experience. Because I want to be a teacher, it is not typical to have an internship but rather to help in the classroom and other aspects of the school that interest you.

5 College Senior

Majors: I am very happy and proud of my success and enjoyment throughout my years in Special Education. I would never, nor have I thought of changing my program. I plan on becoming a teacher when I graduate and later going back to receive my Masters in Educational Psychology. My concerns for this field is the lack of "experience" first time teachers have. I have heard it is difficult to get a teaching job right out of college due to not being a teacher before. So, I think to myself how can I improve my skills- so, during the summer I work in a classroom as a teacher assistant for Special Education and then work as a camp counselor with kids with exceptionalities!

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: We are now integrating the blue lights which helps with safety due to providing more light around campus as well as a location to call for help when needed.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: One thing I wish my school had was more scholarships and loans available. What people struggle with most is paying for things at the time such as housing and meal plans. It would be great if there were loans or scholarships to apply for or that were rewarded based on need.

4 College Senior

Diversity: I do not like the stereotype of Miami. From my eyes we are very diverse; culturally and personally. Each person has something unique to them and gives Miami character.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am excited for the upcoming year with new activities such as Tailgating. I believe this will create a bigger turn out at games and really show the school spirit that we truly have!

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.
