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.

Overall Experience: The class options were good I guess. I just wish there weren't so many required courses (Miami Plan).

Overall Experience: My degree is in architecture, and right now its very hard to get an entry-level job as an architect. So it's kind of hard to judge the value of my degree.

Campus Dining: There are an overwhelming number of food options to chose from dispersed around the campus. However, you can end up getting stuck going to the same places once you get into your day-to-day routine. It's up to you to venture out.

Facilities: The campus is beautiful especially during the summer, fall, and spring. This is due to the surplus of open green spaces and trees, and the style of architecture; there's a huge amount of consistency in the architecture.

Scholarships: The scholarships were not hard to apply for; however, Miami does not offer large amounts of financial aid to people with sufficient wealth.
