Local Area: Miami's atmosphere is infectious. I would never choose to be anywhere else. The people, the night life, the uptown area are so much fun and there is always something to do.

Technology: Wireless is good on campus. If you are in an older dorm, it sometimes is slower.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It is not apparent for someone who doesn't attend the school but if you are, then you know how to get drugs and you know people that do them.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus service is okay on campus. The buses don't run all hours of the day and don't got to all the places they should be going.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Miami says i t is diverse but it really isn't. Besides the copious amounts of Asian International students, everyone looks and dresses the same. The only diverse part of campus is the sexual orientation and religious beliefs.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Being in an LLC that you love is key. I love the hall that I am living in currently and have found my best friends there. The building itself is okay. a little out dated but overall it is a good building to live in. Not to mention its proximity to FSB.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is absolutely terrible trying to find a house off campus. I just signed for my junior year house a couple weeks ago because we were forced to make a decision before all the housing options were taken.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Majors at Miami are the best they can be. The business school is nationally ranked and all seniors have job placements after graduation. I am so lucky to be here and know that I will have a stable future.

Majors: I would not do it over again. Miami's business program is absolutely incredible and gives you so many opportunities to get you foot in the door with organizations around campus, internships, shadowing opportunities, and job placements.

Greek Life: Greek life at Miami is one of the biggest cultural aspects. Many students are prideful of their fraternities and sororities but if you are not in one, you can sometimes feel left out.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: We do not have the best football team and we always struggle getting students to come support the team. The most attended sporting events take place in the Goggin Ice Arena for the Hockey games

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: very tolerant of multi cultural students from around the world

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.
