4 College Freshman

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 Experience: I am super happy. This place amazes me everyday, and the opportunities really are endless. The quality and up-keep of the buildings and dorms is especially noticeable when I have visit friends from other Ohio schools. The condition of the facilities really is unmatched.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Always somewhere to go out!

5 College Freshman

Academics: Easy to register and very worthwhile material

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some buildings are run down

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: A nice area with police all around!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors really care about the material and their students!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Typical dorm rooms. Some doubles can be small.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not part of it, so I don't botice it all that much.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's pretty much what you would expect. Better than high school.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team is not all that great (we only won 3 games this past fall). Hockey is really what our school is known for. That and broomball.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Rec is a great place to get in shape! However, it is very segregated between boys and girls.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Although incidents do happen, Miami does a great job to alert the campus of any crimes and assaults through an email blast. I know the Greek community is strongly against sexual assault and there is a strong community on campus that works to stop sexual assault. I have walked home many times alone at night and when I am on campus, I feel incredibly safe. I am always a alert and aware of my surrounds, but I do feel safe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally have loved about 95% of my classes. However, Miami Plan, although a good idea, can sometimes be tedious. The courses are unbelievably easy, which can help a student's GPA, but can be detrimental to a student's mental state. Yes, the courses are easier than most, but because every student HAS to take them, many students in the class don't care, which shifts the class dynamic and can hurt students who do want to learn and work hard when it comes to group projects.

Major classes, on the other hand, are engaging and challenging, but great because every student in the room wants to be there. They are eager to learn their trade, and this can cause thrilling lectures, and discussions and interactions between professors and students. Professors are there for the students and are very easy to talk to.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being a graduate from Miami can be very helpful when searching for a job or internship. Many of my sorority sisters who have graduated have landed incredible jobs in many different fields.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have lived in Tappan, Porter and McCracken. Tappan was a very nice dorm and newly renovated, but Porter was a bit of a mess. Porter has yet to be renovated, and the residents were more "rowdy" than the honors students in Tappan, which added to the overall cleanliness of the dorm, but it still was better than many dorms I visited on college visits. McCracken is also a building in need of renovations, but the dorms are very spacious and comfortable. Miami has been renovating many of the dorms lately, and the new ones are terrific. However, older buildings, like Wells, are very cramped.

Greek Life: Before college, I never thought that I would be in a sorority. Once I got to campus, however, I went to a few open Greek events and realized that the community at Miami was extremely welcoming and friendly. I ended up rushing and fell in love with the sorority I'm in now, Chi Omega. It really helped me get involved with the school and the student community through philanthropy and social events. I have built an amazing network that helps me with not only my social life, but my school life and working life. I have a few friends that are not in Greek Life and all of their opinions vary. Some are indifferent, some are thinking about rushing, and some make fun of it. Just like many topics, opinions are specific for each person. Because Greek Life is so prominent of Miami's campus though, many people who are not involved, don't mind it's existence and are involved with many other campus groups. Miami has 17 sororities on campus and even more fraternities. There is definitely a something for everyone!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love the school but the other students can at times be shallow and 1 dimensional.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is not that much diversity around campus, but there are a lot of international students from China. There are also some other students from some other countries. But most of the schools population is white Americans.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Overall Miami is the best school that I could have ever gone to. They fit my needs and help me with my college experience. The people at Miami are great! The classes are great and the professors are all passionate about what they teach. Love and Honor

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.
