4 College Sophomore

Majors: Miami University. There are a lot of different classes within the english major. The classes are very thorough and the professors are always ready to help and easily available. The workload is large but not filled with busy work. The work is hard but do able as long as you put in the effort.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The majority of the people on campus are Caucasian. Don't get me wrong, there are some other races. People are normally accepting and the majority are Christians. The majority of the people are rich. And lastly, our school has an LGBT club.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: They have some accessible parking spaces, parking lots, and garages. However, to obtain a parking pass, they cost about $250 at least and the overnight garage passes are $840.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: This is basically a liberal arts school. Some academics that are offered are Social Sciences, Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Business, you name it. The professors are usually available when you need them, as long as you make an appointment during their office hours. The curriculum is pretty simple as well as the registration process. The workload can be either light or heavy, depending what what your classes are and/or what your major is. Tutoring is also helpful (I'm a math tutor) and sometimes the professor can give you studying tips to help you out. Popular study areas can be the quad, the dorm, and the library.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I would say that the majority of the people in general are snobby and preppy, in my opinion. A lot of the people at school mostly wear J. Crew clothing. There are some cute guys there, and I don't necessarily pay attention to the girls since I am one lol. Even though people are serious about their education, it's also a party scene as well. About half of the people can maintain their relationships too.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: They offer plenty of opportunities for your major department. I'm a psychology major, and even though there's a lot of reading and workload involved, it's worth it and the professors are always available to help you out whenever you need it.

4 College Junior

Academics: Miami university offers very rigorous courses of study. Academics are very much a big deal and professors will reflect this in their exams, papers and projects. It is essential that students come to class prepared and focused. With all that being said, Miami University graduates will gains some of the most coveted positions in medical schools, law schools and fortune 500 companies. Students majoring in accounting will have access to the top 4 accounting firms as they have offices located within the business school.

4 College Junior

Computers: For students that come to school without their own personal computer, they will find that Miami has done an amazing job in terms of keeping them plugged in. There are hundreds of Macs and PCs spread across campus in locations that are accessible 24/7. Mac Books can be checked out at both King Library and BEST library for use within these two places. iPads may also be checked our for a 24-hour period and do not require the user to stay in the library.

3 College Junior

Weather: Miami University is located in southern Ohio. With that being said the weather can be rather finicky. The reason I am giving the weather a B is more because of the scenery despite the weather conditions. While it does rain a fair amount during the fall and spring seasons, the scenery makes up for these adverse weather conditions. The winter and dry summer months offer some of the most iconic and picturesque scenes Miami has to offer.

5 College Junior

Academics: Miami University offers very challenging courses that will prepare students for the work force they will one day enter. I believe that academics at Miami are a very serious deal (this is one of the major reasons I chose Miami) and the programs offered are by far some of the most top-notch programs in the country. The Farmer School of Business is known to produce highly able and competitive students who gain jobs in companies such as P&G, PNG and other fortune 50 and fortune 500 companies. Students interested in attending graduate school, law school or medical school will find that they are well prepared for the transition from undergraduate to these other institutes of higher learning.

Local Atmosphere: Miami University is nestled in the heart of a very small town called Oxford. With that being said there is still a great deal of activities that will allow you to explore oxford and yourself as a college student. Uptown consists of amazing restaurants and boutiques that are sure to please. The bars Uptown offer a way for college students to release a little energy and meet new people. Night life is very big at Miami and on a typical weekend Uptown will be bustling with college students looking to have a great time with friends. The greek life is also another important and large community on campus. The fraternities host various "get togethers" that foster the true American spirit of college. Overall, Miami is an amazing school with a truly unique and awesome atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's college food- pizza, sushi, and mexican. That's it.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Bars/ clubs are fun but dirty so don't stay till they turn the lights on. Girls and guys go out almost every day. The nightlife on holidays and weekends are great. GREEN BEER DAY is the best thing to do at Miami the Thursday before Spring Break. Keep it classy :) 21+ preferred!! lots of house parties on campus and right off campus. Cops looking for underagers..... so just act like you are allowed to be drinking and enjoy.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: A lot of diversity on and off campus. The girls dress nice and are usually always in heels, the boys dress preppy as well. Students are interested in getting through the semester and partying when they are not at work or school. Dress to impress, and keep it classy are favorite sayings in restaurants and bars. There is the perfect amount of nerds and partiers to keep Miami interesting!! :)

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Cost if average, not the best prices but you get your moneys worth. The options are great, not just famous fast-food restaurants, there are a ton of options and a great variety for all kinds of cravings. All within walking distance/bus travel so very convenient!! :) Bars are fun but gross and crawling with drunk skanks but what do you expect, it's college!

3 College Junior

Computers: The students get 50 free prints at HAM (Miami University). why not at Oxford or Middletown? Students forget their IDs at home and have no way to print. They also take 10 minutes to log on and that is a long time.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe on campus because we have a Door-to-Door shuttle bus system as well as the regular bus system to help students get places safely. Obviously, one should be cautious about leaving their possessions unlocked and lock up valuables at all times. I feel safe with the Campus Security frequently patrolling the streets. Keep your gatherings voice volume under control so the Campus Security doesn't have to get involved.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I believe we have a diverse group of people on campus at Miami. There are a lot of international students which make the campus more diverse. Also, Miami University has a strong study abroad program which enables students to interact with various races and religions.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received some amount of financial aid, but it was difficult to work all the details out. I would suggest having a sit down meeting with a person in the financial aid department to make sure everything is taking care of.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: the housing at Miami is great, students are able to have a great social atmosphere, and the room sizes are sufficient for a college dorm. however, the cost of living in dorms is very expensive for the average size of the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: the program I am in, Microbiology, is very strong in offering students the best possible education. I thoroughly enjoy it because of the hands on experience and the field work we get to do in picking out our own bacteria and examining and classifying them.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The variety of food uptown is great. however it can be expensive and some places do not offer student discounts. they are pretty close to campus though which is a good convenience.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The program I am in does not really allow for close student and professor bonding time, which deters the students from forming a strong passion for their major because there is not a good ratio of a student per professor.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship, however i am worried about finding one simply because the majors advisors at Miami and the professors have not really mentioned or discussed opportunities for them.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: getting into the program that i wanted which was microbiology was not very difficult. the only requirements were to submit the essays in the college application. I would recommend describing why you have a passion for your major and what you plan to do with it in the future.

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.
