3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Besides hockey, no one cares about the sports

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Miami is great on campus, and Uptown has fun nightlife, good food, and some shops but other than that it is directly in the middle of nowhere. This never bothered me though, there is plenty to do Uptown that you don't need anything else.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had a terrible roommate experience and the housing staff did not fulfill their promised plans. It was a horrible experience.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The most exciting and unique part of my school, to me, is the major that I added to Marketing called Interactive Media Studies. This major is not available at many schools and I think the program Miami offers for it will set me apart in the growing media world.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Miami is a gorgeous campus. Beautiful green quads, extremely clean and well kept. There are plenty of places to eat, study and hangout.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid multiple times and did not receive it. I am still dealing with it and I am done with my first year

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I truly love the people that go to Miami. I believe we all want to learn and become something more than what we started off as and it is truly a blessing. Yes, we do dress preppy, but trust me... we all pull the occasional sweatshirt and such!

Majors: With my Special education major, I have had great experience in the classroom. I believe Miami has a strong hold on preparing students as well as having the opportunity for students to receive jobs and internships. I have not had an internship but I have had summer jobs and field experience. Because I want to be a teacher, it is not typical to have an internship but rather to help in the classroom and other aspects of the school that interest you.

5 College Senior

Majors: I am very happy and proud of my success and enjoyment throughout my years in Special Education. I would never, nor have I thought of changing my program. I plan on becoming a teacher when I graduate and later going back to receive my Masters in Educational Psychology. My concerns for this field is the lack of "experience" first time teachers have. I have heard it is difficult to get a teaching job right out of college due to not being a teacher before. So, I think to myself how can I improve my skills- so, during the summer I work in a classroom as a teacher assistant for Special Education and then work as a camp counselor with kids with exceptionalities!

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: We are now integrating the blue lights which helps with safety due to providing more light around campus as well as a location to call for help when needed.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: One thing I wish my school had was more scholarships and loans available. What people struggle with most is paying for things at the time such as housing and meal plans. It would be great if there were loans or scholarships to apply for or that were rewarded based on need.

4 College Senior

Diversity: I do not like the stereotype of Miami. From my eyes we are very diverse; culturally and personally. Each person has something unique to them and gives Miami character.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am excited for the upcoming year with new activities such as Tailgating. I believe this will create a bigger turn out at games and really show the school spirit that we truly have!

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The first time my friends and I went shopping we were amazed with everything the town has to offer and the local people. It was so much fun and I found my now favorite little coffee shop.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Challenging, but that's what I like. I want to9 struggle and then come up knowing I can do just fine.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love being a criminal justice major! My professors are giving me the edge I need to be desirable in the work force.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You get what you pay for and that is truly all I can say. If you pay for the single room your experience will be dramatically different than in a double or cramped triple.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's interesting. Everything that can be branded in marked with the university's "M," but that doesn't effect the taste of the food which is exceptional.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: I hate hate hate Ohio weather. Especially winter. Its cold and depressing.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I love the gym and the pool, but hate the hours of operation.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: For me Monday through Thursday; I go to class, try to slide in some time on the elliptical, head home and cram in some homework, eat quickly and head to a night class, then finally get to bed. I haven't yet felt too over loaded with classes or homework, but I do spend my weekends working on homework quiet often.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: For the cost of the college the awarded amounts weren't enough it was a little bit of a struggle to feel worry free.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Everything in the dorms such as showers and the bathrooms are always extremely clean and safe. The police are super nice if you need an officer they are always available and easy to get ahold of. The campus is beautiful and full of healthy activities.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: I'm by no means a "partiers" but I really do with that the school was a little more strict or nosey. There is too much rule slippage for me.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Is it sad to say I personally know everyone who delivers for all restraints in the area? Well I can say there are a lot of them and they are all great!

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.
