4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Our off campus housing has a lot of character

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I didn't necessarily love living in the dorm freshman year but that was because of who else was in the dorm They definitely made an effort with different events and stuff for our dorm.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: there are a few places that aren't good but overall its pretty good, and decently priced with meal plan

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus, but not near the campus. I live at home with my parents. I do not know about off campus housing.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: The school is considered to be a "party school." Parties are very popular around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options, but not within walking distance.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The only strict aspect of the campus is the parking. There are not enough student parking lots and the passes are expensive.

College Sophomore

Campus Food: I do not go to the campus often, and have not eaten on campus.

College Sophomore

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options for both drinking and eating off campus. There are pizza places, Asian cuisine, etc.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have never had a negative encounter with administrators yet at campus.

1 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food choices and prices are ok but the town offers better options.

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.
