3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Never lived off campus, but it's pretty nice from what I hear. Not many complaints.

4 College Junior

Local Area: It's not urban, so it feels a lot safer actually. Like, walking somewhere alone never feels dangerous. The town is nice and small, but dense and really has everything you might need. There's even a really nice state park not ten miles away.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They give you a pretty good package. From what I've heard, roughly half your tuition in awards from Miami is the average.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Oxford is a generally safe place. The only time I dont feel safe is when walking home late at night when other student or myself have been drinking.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Need more shuttles during off hours and from parking lots

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are plenty of parties but I don't attend many

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Some people could be friendlier

4 College Freshman

Local Area: small town but plenty of restaurants and stores

5 College Freshman

Academics: Academics are one of the things my college is known for. you can review classes and professors online.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: not into the greek thing

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The college supports all the athletic teams not just the good ones

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: People can get kind of crazy, they could be better regulated. Also, the student health center isn't exactly top-notch with their care.

4 College Senior

Administration: The campus strictness is right where it should be. They aren't overbearing, but they do expect you to be a responsible member of society.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I hardly remember it, but I remember thinking that Miami was the easiest application I had to complete.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Dorms are small, and kind of gross. But that's college I feel like. Depending on how close yo are to the business school, though, people can be super unfriendly and clique-y

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are some really, really good restaurants in Oxford, like Quarter Barrel. There are a lot of local, farm-to-table options, like Kona Bistro.

3 College Senior

Local Area: Some people are sketchy, some people are really great. There aren't that many things to do besides drink, eat or shop, though.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's overpriced and a lot of the houses are run down.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: There are parties nearly every night of the week, and there is an 18+ bar open at least every night. A lot of parties are themed, and the alcohol is always provided in huge baby pools or behind bars. DJs and expensive sound systems are important.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the housing is really nice but the freshman tend to end up with the older, more beat up dorms.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Hockey is the big sport at our school and the school shows the most support at the hockey games. However, the school doesn't have a good reputation for many other sports, so it is understandable why the students like hockey the best.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are specific grades you need for most of the financial aid

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone dresses nicely and generally look like they put in an effort to impress each other. It's nice.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It's really nice how most students in the music department are music education majors. For once I get to be surrounded by people who want to have the same future as me.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Overall, it's actually pretty good. There are many options. The only issue is the steep pricing, even with the discount. Most places are a-la-carte, but they are bringing buffet-style dining back like they still have at many other schools. There is a noticeable quality difference between the buffet dining halls and the other non-buffet dining halls. The best dining hall is undoubtedly Bell Tower Place. MapleStreet station has a really interesting variety of places to eat, and I think FirstStop is one of the best, because you're actually waited on, which I don't believe many other colleges have anywhere like that.

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.
