4 College Freshman

Computers: Miami University has mostly macs but if you are a PC person, no worries because they also have that. Printing on campus are available in many places, but most often in the libraries. We have different libraries for different fields, there is the main library and then there are smaller, less crowded libraries such as the music library and the science library. Network connection is fast in libraries but in dorm rooms, it can be kind of slow. You have to pay extra to have super fast connection in your dorm.

Local Atmosphere: Quant Town – Its a smal campus, with a campus town. there are events that the school provides so students are able to explore uptown. and the atmosphere of the town at night is electric, everything is open and waiting to be adventured. and if your scene isn't being the wild child, there are many acres to be explored.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Pretty much you have to be really stupid inorder to get caught for drugs and alcohol here...just be smart about it. You can find people drinking almost every night of the week, and if you want drugs they are pretty easy to get.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Miami is known as a work hard, play harder type of school, and on every given night, there is always something going on. With over 10 bars uptown, and most of them being 18+, one can never get bored. Also, with a big Greek community, there are a lot of frat parties and day drinks anyone can go to.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Most all buildings have been recently updated within the past 10 years, and the older buildings are currenently under construction to make them even better. Our student center is being re-done, and will be amazing once finished. Farmers School of Business is brand new and so nice and the rest of the campus is absolutely amazing.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: They have bus routes which are included in your tuition costs so you might as well utilize them. If you are walking alone at night, especially if you're female, Nighttime Door to Door can come pick you up. It is free and very convenient when it's cold out.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are computers available for use in almost every academic building. However, the wifi can be spotty at times.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Basically, 90% of the student population here is Greek, and if that statistic is wrong, it sure seems that way. Greek-life doesn't interfere with other non-Greek students if they don't want it to though. But, Greeks are quite dominant.

College Freshman

Athletics: I don't really frequent many sporting events on campus, but, apparently our hockey team is top notch. I know that we have a great natatorium and sports facility.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Above Expectations – Campus living is really great. Coming to college and dorm life is exactly how I expected it to be, and more. Despite the preppy stereotypes I had coming to this school about the students, I've managed to meet some cool peers.

5 College Senior

Majors: Sport Studies – As a sport studies major, I have been able to take full advantage of the amazing professors at Miami. Because a lot of my minor credits could be found within my major I was also able to take a Minor in a different field. I took a minor in Family relationships so that When I become a University Head Soccer Coach I will be able to connect with the students and parents. The minor also has helped me figure out my values and what I'll like to teach my future children.

1 College Senior

Parking: There isn't a day that goals by that I don't see someone with a parking ticket on their car. Sometimes I'm afraid to drive because I feel as though I'm going to get a ticket and after 3 unpaid tickets you get a boot put onto your car. Because I'm of campus there is somewhat of a need for a car but even on campus it was good to escape once and a well. But parking is hard to find and when you do find it you can't park there because you don't have the right permit.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are some good options but the accessibility to campus is poor because if you live off campus you can't get a parking pass that means anything. The parking system ruins the good housing so some people decide to live closer in sub-par conditions. I would of loved to live at Level 27 but campus wouldn't be as accessible for me because the bus only runs at certain times.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I dont pay attenttion to greek life though it is available. A lot of my friends just joined greeks but they are all still cool.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Everything is very convienent and also afffordable. I regularly go eating off campus about 3 or 4 times a month. If i dont feel like leaving most resuarants deliver

4 College Freshman

Facilities: On Campus – Miami has one of the nicest campuses i have seen so far. The student center is full of diversity in race, ethnics, and styles. Everyone is really nice and the libraries are very welcoming.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Pretty Smooth – No hassles for me, they gave me instructions on how to accept, and that was pretty much the end of it

1 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is s***. If you park where youre not supposed to you WILL get a ticket without fail. There's a very limited amount of places where visitors can park, and the parking passes for students are super expensive if you want your car to be less than 15 minutes walk away

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys are all metro, girls all have their heads up their asses. They may be good looking, but have no personality

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The housing is easy. Its easy to find a house close to campus and all the houses are very nice, including brand new apartments uptown. One disadvantage is that it is very expensive

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: you get the real college experience at Miami University. All the bars are excellent and it is like its own little city. Great atmosphere and great people

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Typical Excessive Forms and Documents – Financial aid seems to always require forms and documents that take forever to fill out, no matter where you go to school.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Superior Aesthetics – The red brick buildings on campus are GORGEOUS, thats one of the reasons they call it a public Ivy. Interiors tend to be somewhat run down. The Farmer's School of Business is a state of the art facility. The athletic center is well laid out, cardio equipment on an open upper deck and weight training equipment below. Group fitness classrooms are well maintained.

4 College Junior

Academics: Professors take pride in their experience and qualifications. The curriculum is well rounded and the workload typical of many colleges. Business is the most popular study area of students.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Everyone Lives There – The good thing about Miami is that everyone lives either on or around campus. Every weekend is a party weekend and anyone can go to most parties. Not many people own cars because they don't like to leave the school. We have so many options for the weekends and everything is fun.

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.
