3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The police say they are strict about underage drinking, but they rarely make an effort to catch people. However, they sometimes have undercover cops in clubs and parties every once in a while.

Greek Life: The student body is made up of mostly Greek life. But those that are not involved find most of it annoying or pointless.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Many guys are hot, but they are typical frat guys. Most are asses.

Greek Life: Greek life dominates the campus. they say only 1/3 students are greek, but they have a much bigger impact than that.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Pretty strict as far as on campus things go. Drink in your dorm, bad news. Drink off campus, you're all good

Local Atmosphere: Miami is located in a true college town. Uptown which is really the downtown has great little boutiques and restaurants and a great local coffee shop. Only about 10 minutes away is Heuston Woods State park which is great for hiking, boating, and just a day away from campus.

Campus Housing: I know plenty of people that love their room and I really don't mind the community style of the dorms but I got stuck with a tiny room. I am in a double and our room is 13x9 feet, I feel like I am drowning in it sometimes. I am very excited for next year because I like the dorm I will be in. The freshmen dorms (mine) are the worst dorms so if you get stuck with a little room then it will only be for a year or you can switch room.

5 College Freshman

Weather: Some people don't like that there is snow and rain and it gets cold but that is Ohio weather. I have always lived in Ohio and know how to manage it and knew it would be here. When it is a nice day the campus is one of the prettiest places with all the the big quads and trees.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are many different types of people at Miami but there is a huge stereotype. Miami is a very preppy school so sometimes if you don't look for other people you feel like those are the only people. I like that there still is that difference and you will see the groups mesh together. This is mostly for girls but the guys are definitely more preppy also and there are a lot of brands here.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus there are many options. Many places deliver but there are not that many nice restaurants to choose from. There are lots of different type of food options such as Indian, Chinese, or American.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The student center is sub par, but they are building a new one, along with many other new buildings.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are all in great shape and attractive. However, most people are very preppy and dress exactly like each other.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining is good, there are many places to eat, however there are not many options on the weekend or late at night. Also, the student center does not have the best food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is better than most universities and HEALTHY!!!!
Lots of variety

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Mainly white with many oriental.
Few Hispanic/Afro-American

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm still not into my program, as it's a pre-major (we get in after sophomore year). But I know there will be various weed-out classes next year, but I know I'll get through them because the faculty have lots of office hours. Having a good grade, preferably a 3.6 or better, will help you get into the program, as well as getting to know some of the faculty. But if you study hard and get good grades, you should get into the program just fine.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love the Speech Pathology and Audiology program at Miami. It's a well rounded program and there's an associated extracurricular organization, NSSLHA. My professors are enthusiastic and I will get lots of clinic observation hours. Miami also has a graduate program for Speech Pathology.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: There is legitimately every kind of student group that you could want. Greek life is everywhere, there's every kind of intramural sport from frisbee to Quidditch. We have HvZ and religious groups. It's all here. Students have a lot of school pride, more than I've seen at other places, and so do alumni. We have several libraries and an awesome Rec center.

2 College Freshman

Weather: The weather here is INSANE. It jumps from 50 degrees to 30 over night, and you're going to be walking around in it a lot as a freshman and sophomore. Be prepared to dress in layers and carry around an umbrella or winter coat. Luckily, all the buildings are pretty good at blocking out extremely warm or cool weather. However, they suck at salting the side walks so invest in a good pair of boots. On the positive side the campus looks completely gorgeous no matter what the season, and we do have bus transportation for when things get really awful.

4 College Freshman

Academics: All the professors I've had at Miami have been very attentive and willing to answer any questions I might have. The majority of them are hilarious, which is an added bonus. They do expect you to do all your work and to keep up, but they'll help you out with study guides and review questions when exam time comes around.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Some things about Miami that got me to go there: great architecture program, opportunities to study abroad, a beautiful campus, and a state-of the-art rec center. Miami also has an immense amount of student pride that's kind of contagious.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The prime housing options (close to uptown and campus) are usually booked for the next two years, and it's not uncommon for freshmen to choose their housing for junior year. Houses and apartments range in the amenities, quality of the house, and price for rent, and most come with an an inappropriate.funny "name" signified by a sign somewhere on the house.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Miami is huge on Greek life. Much of the students are involved in some type of Greek life. It definitely contributes to social status and separation, but also helps enjoy the school a bit more and be more involved in activities. It also provides for a wicked nightlife.

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.
