5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although I have not started school at Miami University yet, I am ecstatic about the opportunities I know that it will bring me. As a part of the Farmer's School of Business, I am set far ahead of others already. I am confident that the schooling I will be receiving will be worth far more than tuition. After stepping foot on the campus for the first time, I knew that this was the right place for me. From the breathtaking buildings to the sense of welcoming I have felt from not only the students, but also the staff, I am certain that you could not find a better school. I am constantly reassured of this every time I hang out with my new friend, Allison, a girl I met on the 'Miami University Class of 2020' Facebook page. It turns out that we have a lot in common and I am looking forward to getting to know her better when we move in next month. I am astounded by Miami University already and I cannot wait to see what surprises the next four years hold.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: VERY NICE PEOPLE, CAMPUS IS A BIT OLD, BUILDINGS SHOW THEIR AGE, BUT STAFF MAKES UP FOR ANY OF THOSE ISSUES, I LOOK FORWARD TO COMPLETEING MY YEARS HER & MOVE ON TO A 4YR COLLEGE TO SUCCESSFULLY GAIN EMPLOYMENT IN THE FIELD OF CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In every class I've taken so far at Miami, I've felt that my professors truly cared about my educational experience and were willing to meet with me whenever I needed. I'm confident that they will be a valuable part of my professional network.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are two career internship fairs per year at Miami that professors are more than willing to excuse absence from class for you to attend. Many students get interviews and internships/jobs from these fairs. Almost all opportunities for recruiting are for business students.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel very safe walking around campus-- I can walk around at night without fear. Other students are also very caring, I've witnessed students reaching out to someone to might need help at a party/uptown out of kindness and I know my friends and I wouldn't hesitate to do the same.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: This upcoming year, all dorms will have been renovated except for sorority quad which means incoming classes will have the best of the best. Since the university is growing, the administration has been expanding housing. Even with expansion, all the options are very close to academic buildings/dining options. Every dorm I've seen has been super clean, modern, and beautiful! My favorite feature of housing is that no building is over 3 stories high... meaning you won't be hiking up flights of stairs just to get home after class.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I love being greek at Miami! The women I've met through my sorority have become some of my best friends and are truly there for all the right reasons. Miami greek life has gotten a bad reputation lately due to the actions of a few misguided frat boys. Don't let them ruin your impression of Miami greeks!

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Miami isn't a school for students looking to tailgate a football game or attend any sort of sporting even really. Upon getting to school i realized quickly that no one (that I knew anyway) cared at all about Miami sports. That said, the gaps in sports-involvement are filled with parties.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love this school. It truly is the epitome of the college experience you see in the movies... the campus is pristine, the students are above average looking, and while the party scene is huge, students really do take their education seriously and want to succeed. The school's size is perfect-- not suffocatingly small, but not big enough to make you feel lost. I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had several amazing professors leading classes that have challenged me as an academic and forced me to not just be a student, but a scholar. I have developed great relationships with them that have truly allowed me to have a stronger devotion to this school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A Miami degree is really starting to pick up traction nation-wide. Especially is graduating from the business school, prospects are really great, but everyone has a strong likelihood of getting hired in their field. Miami has a great career fair each fall with many powerhouse companies from around the country and world that results in many employments for students.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our school is always working to provide the safest campus atmosphere as possible. I walk home from the library late at night all the time, and never have felt endangered. Everyone looks out for each other.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had a really great experience with my campus housing. It was an awesome way to make a ton of friends right away, as everyone in my corridor left their door open which allowed for lots of fun late nights and new relationships. Condition-wise, I was in a non-renovated residence hall, which was still air-conditioned and worked out well.

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.
