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.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers are Macs and they have been working very well for me. they have almost no glitches and the reliability is great.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: If you want to be Greek then it's an A+ However, if you are not Greek, it can and will get very old very quickly.

3 College Senior

Facilities: Differs from location to location depending on which dorms and dining halls, but for the most part they are trying to stay up to date and have been building new facilities.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Landlords and realty companies are very difficult to deal with in Oxford, because they know you have little to choose from in this small town and will pay the money if you need somewhere to live, and you do. The real estate in Oxford is monopolized.

4 College Senior

Parking: Parking passes are expensive. They give tickets out like crazy if you are illegally parked, too.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am a kinesiology major, and I love the program. The classes are very interesting and the teachers do a great job at communicating the material. It is somewhat challenging, but I have learned that it is better to study something you like then something you do not.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics at Miami University are great. They are very challenging in a positive way, and there are many great programs for different majors. The business school is by far one of the best programs, along with the sciences for pre-med. The Honors program is also a great way to engage in smaller classes and positive learning experiences.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is very similar to other campuses. There are many houses and newer apartments, so you can choose a place based on your preferences. The location is good, seeing as most houses and apartments are close to academic buildings. The landlords are friendly and willing to work with any interested students!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Without no doubt the entire campus is definitely filled with great looking bodies but they all seem to be occupied with the same personalities. Preppy frat boys and sorority girls. Social life is active with parties almost every weekend and the clubs are always filled.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus is GREAT! Pita-Pit and SoHi are really great, inexpensive (around the price of subway) and different. More expensive options (BUT REALLY GOOD TOO), are Krishna for Indian, Wild Bistro for Chinese, I Love Sushi and Sushinara for Sushi. There are also the normal options such as Quiznos, Subway, and Wild Bistro.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The police are pretty chill and as long as you are not a threat to yourself or those around you, the administration is fair.

4 College Junior

Computers: WIth over four libraries on campus, finding a computer is not a problem.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Over the past serval years, Miami University has been improving it's diversity percentage. Although they still have a long way to go, I feel that the university is making the proper changes to improve the diversity of the student body.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I didn't have any problems being accepted into my major or my minor. I feel it helps to go in undeclared, start on Miami plan courses and maintain a good GPA. From there, get to know some of the professors that are in the fields you are considering and talk it over with them. Once you have faculty memebers backing you, then declare a major and a minor.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: There is a huge workload for students who are trying to obtain an English degree, but I love it. I have been introduced to so many authors, ideas and genres that I never thought about before. I've learned to think more critically, actively evaluate underlying plots in novels and write fiction in a more comprehensive way. Because Miami offers such a broad range of humanities courses that can be used for my degree, I feel that I was able to customize my degree to fit my interests. The only thing that annoys me is the fact that you have to take two full years of foreign language. I don't feel this should be required

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.
