Off-Campus Housing: There are enough options to fit everyone's needs. It's very easy to find a place to live. The hard part is determining what will be best for you.

Off-Campus Dining: Make sure to check out Bagel and Deli. My favorite is the messy Katie! I also became obsessed with Krishna's Chicken Saag.

Administration: For the most part, the school is pretty lenient when it comes to minor things. I felt very safe at school.

Scholarships: It pains me to say it's great just because I'm paying back those loans now, but in all honesty the process was easy. Literally fill out the FAFSA and Miami essentially takes care of the rest for you.

Party Scene: There is absolutely no shortage of parties at Miami. We even created our own "holiday" called Green Beer Day, which is the Thursday before Spring Break. Bars open at 5 am. We start pregaming by 4!

Campus Food: Lots of healthy options and not too expensive. There is also an on campus grocery store where you can use your meal plan to pay!

Campus Housing: Emerson is one of the best dorms for freshman. It's an honors dorm, but even if you're not an honors student you may live there! Each room has air conditioning (only 2 dorms on campus have this). Flower is the farthest from campus. Living on Western campus is undesirable also because of how far it is to walk to classes. Miami will be opening new dorm buildings for the Fall 2015 school year.

Off-Campus Dining: I love the little restaurants uptown. The employees are some of the nicest people there are and the food is fantastic, at least in comparison to the dining halls on campus.

Administration: When a problem does come up, the administration seems to handle it fairly well. However, they aren't aware of about 98% of the problems that might occur.

Scholarships: If you have the chance, go to the financial aid/scholarship offices in person. The employees there are super nice and very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are very fun to go to and it's nearly impossible to not find somewhere to go. You do have to be careful, though, about drinking because some guys at frat parties will try to get you too drunk.

Campus Food: There are many different types of foods to choose from, but it's all average tasting. There is not as much flavor as most students would like.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The typical freshman dorms are quite dirty, but the social aspect within them is great.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Very very expensive, I've been to places that are not very clean at all. I remember one specific place smelled like car urine. :/

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's very convenient, prices are okay, and usually pretty fast.

3 College Junior

Administration: Since I don't live on campus I don't know much but I do know there's a lot of underage drinking going on. It's kind of like administration people are a little blind to the things going on around them.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Meet the deadlines and know exactly what you are excepting.

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.
