4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Students wear preppy clothing. Students expect each other to look "nice" on a daily basis, especially if they attend the business school. However, I've worn non-preppy clothing to class and no one has said anything rude to me.

Scholarships: Miami gives out scholarships based on merit and need. Some scholarships come automatically with your test scores and GPA.

3 College Freshman

Technology: There are many available computers on campus and repairs for computers are free if they were bought through the school. However, the wi-fi on campus is extremely spotty.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The transportation to Miami is okay. It's easiest to get from point A to point B by ride-sharing with other students who are going to the same place.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in a sorority, but it's a pretty prominent part of the social life.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining halls are pretty good, but it depends where you live and what's the closest to you.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's accessible, but every time I've gone they've just thrown advil at me.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The business school is challenging but the faculty usually wants to help you and there are endless resources to do well.

Academics: Business is a popular area of study because Miami's business school is so reputable. It's a liberal arts school, so there are a large variety of majors, minors, and other study options.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The bus is free. Campus isn't that big especially considering the amount of students, so even if you don't take the bus it's fine.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't a lot of student discounts because it's a total college town, but the prices aren't bad to begin with so it's fine.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The guidelines on the website are pretty straightforward to get financial aid.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Miami. The only complaint that I have is how strict they are about parking tickets.

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.
