Weather: In a single day we can go from pouring rain to side ways snow to 70 degrees and sunny. The weather of the seasons makes for a beautiful campus though.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are multiple options depending on preference of apartment or house.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As an older campus we do have a lot of older buildings on campus. Each year they are taking the older buildings and renovating them as well as building a lot of new housing with more of an apartment feel.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a member of the Women's Soccer Team I am very involved with athletics on campus. We get a lot of student, faculty/staff and other student athlete support on game days.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As a young female I have no worries walking from a night class back to my dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have the Dayton and Cincinnati airport not too far away and there are always people going home that you can catch a ride with.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Oxford is very much a college town. We like to say we are in our own little bubble in the OxBox. You get the chance to meet all kinds of new people on a beautiful day when everyone is hanging outside the dorms or their houses.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: They are very strict right off campus, because police have no real crime to attend to

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Lots on internship and job opportunities

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For such an expensive school, they don't hand out scholarships well

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I wish we had a better football team, but people are really into hockey here and our team is really good. They did just pass an open cooler law for tailgating at football games, which will make those more fun

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The new dorms are really nice and the living learning communities are a good idea, but the sorority girls get stuck with the old dorms in central quad

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a fun way to get involved in any aspect of Miami that you choose. They have a lot of opportunities you just have to want to take them. It sucks that girls have to live in dorms, because we don't have sorority houses, and some sororities seem cliquey and stuck up, but I think it's just because you don't know them

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife at Miami is awesome, always something to do. The only downfall is Oxford Police Department's lack of s*** to do, so they are ALWAYS looking for underage drinking.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The obvious diversity is from international students, mainly asian. the other diversity you can see if from the different economic classes students come from. It ranges from very very wealthy families to very poor families.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The alcohol scene is everywhere. Since campus is small, there isn't a high risk of driving drunk

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The people in greek life only associate with other people in greek life even though they won't admit it. there are still plenty of ways to have fun but you definitely always feel the presence of greek life.

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.
