3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, I'm content with Miami and what it has to offer. The social culture there revolves around drinking and bars and I wish there were more things to do around campus. The courses are good, and my teachers have showed a genuine interest in teaching and well being. It's a good place to network and be around other motivated people. There is a lot of school pride and it's fun going to a school that's very active in Greek Life.

Party Scene: Parties and crazy bars every night except Sunday. Saturday day drinking is huuuuge. Most house parties are for upperclassmen because underclassmen usually stay in dorms.

Health & Safety: I hear of the occasional incident of people being mugged and what not, but they aren't common. Overall I feel very safe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are tough but rewarding. You put in the work, you will get a fair grade reflecting that. Class sizes are relatively small but could be smaller I guess. Professors are dedicated but some pretty tough.

Campus Housing: Most of the RA's are cool and won't give you a hard time unless you are being especially loud/obnoxious or allow them to see you with something (illegal) in the dorm. They usually don't go out of their way to get you in trouble, though. Kids that get in trouble for partying always over did it. My dorm is practically brand new and is super nice, as with all of the buildings ive been in. Only people I know who ended up in an older dorm did so to save money. Anyone who wanted a new one seemed to get one.

Greek Life: If Greek is your thing, you will be very happy here. If not, not problems! Still tons to do. I didn't rush and have no plans to but have pretty of friends, some Greek and some not.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: People like supporting their Redhawks! Hockey is the biggest, but a large student body is at all sports. I think the other sports would grow in popularity if the teams performed a bit better.

5 College Freshman

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.
