Off-Campus Housing: I've never lived off campus but I have heard that it is a challenge and competition if fierce.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Miami students tend to have a specific image they strive for. This image includes, skinny, sporty, party-goers, drinkers, recreational drug users, one-night stands with strangers, okay academics, preppy, and rich.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Many of the professors i've seen are dedicated to encouraging the students to work smarter and not harder. Some even shape the way they teach differently in an attempt to help the students understand concepts by looking at the big picture and working their way down to the specifics and explaining how multiple concepts fit together.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Because the zoology program has been lumped in with the micro-bio, biology, and botany programs, the specific opportunities for strictly zoological studies is rare or non-existent.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We're in rebuilding years in a lot of our sports, but hockey is huge on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: We have a nationally ranked faculty that lives up to their accolades.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: In my major there are a variety of opportunities that can be found but there are even more that are presented to you.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining are great and deliver late in order to cater to the college lifestyle.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We have state-of-the-art facilities that are always conveniently available.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There's always something to do on campus! You have to actually try to be bored lol!

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: The local atmosphere is ideal for a college town. The major of Oxford's inhabitants are students and the one's that aren't are still friendly. It's a safe place with little crime. There's always something going on which is surprising considering the size of the town. Saturday and Sunday afternoons in Oxford are the best. Families and students walking Uptown going to lunch or lounging in the park. And there's nothing like a Friday or Saturday night. What is a family-friendly town during the day turns into party central at night.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge deal- basically everyone does it.

Off-Campus Housing: It's strange that you have to sign for a house or apartment two years in advance if you want a good one.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I love how the meal plan is set up as actual money. There are plenty of options, however things arnt open very late.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Drug use and underage drinking are not allowed, but it is not very strictly enforced. Parking is the main thing that is enforced.

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.

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.
