2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Rich Kids = Aderall nation

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've learned the value of being a go getter and networking

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni network is great, especially in Washington, D.C.! We got connections at the White House!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Close to academic buildings, meal plan, trash take out. It was the best

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: GDI v. Greek campus, unless you represent a minority. It's averagely accepted that minorities don't have to join frats or sororities to be cool.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Eh. Hockey is great. Football is overfunded because they suck

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The opportunities, such as the "Inside" programs like the Inside Washington program are great ways to see the successes of alumni working and networking within fields that students might wish to pursue.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As I have said before, I really love it at Miami. Despite having a few flaws in terms of variety of classes offered, I still enjoy attending this college.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have not really used the campus/s career services.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: In my personal opinion, I have never felt particularly unsafe walking in the dark alone. I also use SafeRide if I am alone or with a couple friends walking far places. It is a bus that takes people to different places on or off campus starting at 10 pm.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have lived on campus for two years and I believe that I have experienced the two extremes of dorm life. My freshman year, I lived in an old dorm that was quite dirty, but it was near classes, uptown and on campus dining. Sophomore year, I lived in a new dorm, that was quite clean but very far away from classes. It was near a dining hall but over time visiting the same dining hall grew old.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big on campus, and there are many different types of sororities and fraternities. In terms of it affecting the social atmosphere on campus, it does; everyone can tell when it's rush week for sororities. Some Greek students look down on other students that aren't a part of the lifestyle, but not everyone does that.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Miami is well known for the hockey and ice skating team. They are the best Miami has to offer. Although we have a basketball and football team, it does not get recognized as much. Club sports are also really fun to watch.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really love Miami University and I am proud to have chosen to attend this college. I have made friends for life and every day I learn something new. Most teachers do not want to see any students fail so they help as best as they can. I really enjoy this place, I think of it as my second home. Love and Honor!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As a male on campus, I feel extremely safe. There doesn't seem to be that much crime on or off campus that gets reported to the students. The police and other safety services come as fast as they can when they are called.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are various career fairs in which students of certain degrees and fields can go and talk to multiple employers on potential internships/job opportunities. Additionally, the carrier center can help you in a variety of ways.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The courses are challenging being a microbiology major yet they are rewarding. All of my professors I've had are willing to help you if you need it and if you put in the work. Class size depends on the class. For example, general chemistry had a class size of 130+ while calculus had a class size of 23.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing on campus in my opinion is great. The social atmosphere has been tremendous and the dorms are pretty good for their cost. However, some of the dorms are extremely far away from campus which could be a hassle for some.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life in Miami can be seen everywhere. It is always talked about and every girl seems to join one of the various sororities available.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The only sport that seems to matter is hockey. The team does a consistently good job and its seems as if everyone on campus has been to a game. Once hockey season is over, school sports don't seem to get a big rep on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Miami University has been an amazing experience. The school has tough academics that make you work yet there are various extra curricular activities. Additionally, there are various ways to advance yourself in your career whether that be internships or co-ops. From my experience, everyone I've meet has been a generous and nice person yet the school is very preppy and the Greek life is everywhere.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I appreciate that Miami always send out alerts about any incidents that happen on or near campus, such as robberies or sexual assaults.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really have enjoyed my experience here at Miami so far. My professors are all so kind and helpful, with most of them always being willing to lend a hand or open their door if assistance is needed. I appreciate it very much, because I do not think that I would have succeeded as much as I have today.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am not very familiar with the career prospects of Miami, since I am only a first year. However, I have heard that most students who graduate are usually offered a job within six months of graduation. However, I have had a great opportunity to work at our Starbucks on campus, and I have even been promoted to student manager. That is something that Miami has offered me that I has caused me to be extremely grateful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy my dorm since it is very clean and the staff are all very kind. I love my RD and RA's because they are always available and offer such amazing advice and help.

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.
