2 College Freshman

Athletics: Nobody cares about any sport except for hockey.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life at Miami is incredibly dominant in the social scene. If you are in a dope frat you run the campus. Frats on campus all have really nice houses, annex houses, and throw huge parties. Each of the top frats get all the hot girls and have the most fun. Sounds great right? Wrong. Greek life at Miami is a beautiful thing, it's exactly what one imagines greek life to be, but its held back by the administration which is systematically trying to kick every fraternity off campus. Our current president (Hodge) has had a vendetta against fraternity life for his entire career and now that he is in his last year he is going scorched earth on the greek system. If most of the top frats can stay on campus for the rest of this year things should be better since our incoming president seems to be pretty pro greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish this degree was an MS in Environmental Biology instead of an MA, but I am going to learn as much as I can and hopefully I can gain employment. Again, I am an online student.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: This is really a n/a for me, I am a long distance learner.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: They have been in the middle of renovating all the dorms here. In addition they have added numerous upper class men housing options on campus that are very nice.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: We have an amazing tradition of Greek life here at Miami. We are called the mother of Fraternities because we have so many Alpha chapters here. Additionally, even though school have cracked down on Greek life the Greek community here stands together to try and prevent Greek life from ending.

4 College Junior

Athletics: When it comes to sports that many people here about such as football and basketball we are mediocre. When it comes to other sports like hockey, dance, equestrian we rank very well and there is a lot of support. Hockey is huge and gets the support that the Alabama football team gets.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have loved my college experience so far. I love how Miami is in a bubble away from everything else. It makes itself an oasis out in the corn fields. It has been described by many and I would agree wholeheartedly that it is truly a Neverland for the people who attend and the alumni that come back

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic opportunities for varsity athletes are great. There are also good facilities such as the Rec for non-varsity students, and the intramural leagues often use the same facilities as the varsity sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience so far. The campus and facilities are beautiful. All of my professors thus far have been experts in their field. There are a lot of activities to do such as intramural sports and attending D1 sporting events on campus as well as joining service fraternities and other interest-based clubs. I would choose Miami again and again.

Party Scene: Parties have a great impact on your student experience. Most bigger parties are hosted by frats but theres an occasional party held by an independent house or team.

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.
