4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Miami is a great school pedigree-wise -- many companies in Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Chicago and Indianapolis have tons of Miami grads and recruit their employees.

Health & Safety: As for the campus, it's incredibly safe and I feel comfortable 100% of the time. However, problems like sexual assault and alcohol abuse are very hush-hush and not talked about.

Campus Housing: Housing is a toss-up; the nicest, newest dorms are the furthest away from the academic buildings which is really annoying. They ARE renovating all of the dorms so this could change.

Greek Life: Greek Life is a big part of campus culture. There's something for everyone, BUT you can't expect it to be perfect right away.

Athletics: I think that there is opportunity for school spirit and student involvement in the varsity sports, but the sub par performance of the teams makes the students less likely to go. The athletic facilities for non-athletes are horrible and need to be greatly improved.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
