3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I love the gym and the pool, but hate the hours of operation.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: For me Monday through Thursday; I go to class, try to slide in some time on the elliptical, head home and cram in some homework, eat quickly and head to a night class, then finally get to bed. I haven't yet felt too over loaded with classes or homework, but I do spend my weekends working on homework quiet often.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For the cost of the college the awarded amounts weren't enough it was a little bit of a struggle to feel worry free.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Everything in the dorms such as showers and the bathrooms are always extremely clean and safe. The police are super nice if you need an officer they are always available and easy to get ahold of. The campus is beautiful and full of healthy activities.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I'm by no means a "partiers" but I really do with that the school was a little more strict or nosey. There is too much rule slippage for me.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Is it sad to say I personally know everyone who delivers for all restraints in the area? Well I can say there are a lot of them and they are all great!

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Amazing variety! It is actually surprising how many unique people have meet in my short time here!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I never had been into sports but here they catch my attention every so often. Mostly I choose to study and sleep instead of being in a screaming crowd. The few(as in two) times I have been to a sporting event the students seemed to really enjoy themselves.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Many off campus apartments are available at low cost in somewhat questionable neighborhoods, but typically considered safe. The university is mostly made up of students who life at home with their parent until they graduate or their degree requir3es them to move to the main Oxford campus. The cost of these local apartments are in the range of a part time student worker. Reviews and information on these apartments give good ratings to the landlords and quality of the apartments. However, "safe" the area is claimed to be it would not be wise to live alone, especially not for a young female.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The bus system is incredibly helpful but the schedule is rather confusing.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The nightlife is always popping, always a party or something to do probably too active if anything.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I actually prefer off campus dining way more than on campus housing, the only problem i have is that i have so much money on my meal plan that i rarely even use.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is stereotypical just like those in the movies.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: In the academics sector I feel like all the attention and funding goes to the business students. There is a chain of command affiliated within the various schools and college degree programs on campus and its as though the business students has all the perks and amenities that the rest of the student body population in other degree programs are unable to receive.

Academics: My major program is very competitive. One major thing that I dislike about the program is the lack of various teachers and classes. Classes are only offered at one set time with one set teacher, so if a student was to fail a class he/she has to them repeat the class with the same instructor not only trying to excel greater than they had done before but also now fighting the biases the teacher has/had formed against him from the previous year.

2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students there confirm to the typical stereotype of being a "Miami Girl" or "Frat boy". Its as though everyone is a carbon copy of one another, lacking overall individuality. Because of this "standard" if you do not conform to their standards you are shut out and isolated from the bulk of the population, but if you do submit yourself to this transformation you them become just another mirrored image of someone else. I feel like this school accepted all the "cool kids" and "mean girls" from high school and threw them all in one place to interact with one another…something like survival of the fittest or a modern realistic version of the hunger games trilogy.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Emphasis is placed in areas that are unnecessary or those that serves as an outlet for the school to make a quick buck on the students.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food on campus is absolutely HORRIBLE! it shocks me how during orientation they glorified the vast food choices they created for their students when in reality the food is the same every day, there is no variety and furthermore the food is usually very oily and lacking nutritional value. I have also witnessed some of my friends who are gluten-free have a hard time finding meals that fit their dietary needs.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I myself, am not a sports person, but what i have realized in my attendance at miami is that sports is obviously not their main priority. I say this because the investments are not placed on athletes for there performance obviously displays the quality in the training they are receiving.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I feel the dorms on campus are severely outdated! The environment itself doesn't help either being that one is not placed in the dorms (with doormats or roommates) based on similarities with one another. I feel like the school just pitches everyone randomly into rooms without careful consideration of how compatible they are.

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.
