4 College Freshman

Local Area: The local attitude towards students is ok but the student body usually does appreciate the presence of the locals

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: All the houses are named and almost every one lives off campus once they can

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have enjoyed all of my political science classes except for world politics

3 College Freshman

Majors: I am still in introductory level classes so I have not done anything to exciting yet

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I did not have the grades to rush this year but I plan to as sophomore. I think the whole rush second semester thing is a good idea because it allows you to adjust to college first. Most of the guys are pretty friendly and will let you in if you know somebody and sometimes even if you dont.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The teachers here are great as far as knowledge is concerned although some are relatively obnoxious

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Miami is not a diverse university. We arent intolerant to anyone but we are not diverse

3 College Freshman

Transportation: It is usually easier and faster to just walk to class. The only time I use the bus is to get uptown or to wal-mart

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Bagel and Deli is a must. Steinkellers is this cool little German pub and there are lots of other options

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Hockey games are huge here and most students are in some form of an intramural

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Hospital in Oxford is a little sketchy but it doesn't really affect the students

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have enjoyed living in Morris Hall. It is kind of far from the sports stadiums but it has all the new food options right next to it

4 College Freshman

Technology: They are pretty up to date on the new technology

4 College Freshman

Weather: This Winter has been particularly cold and snowy but it is usually pretty nice out

3 College Freshman

Administration: The enforcement of rules is somewhat selective and is completely dependent on the resident assistant you get

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party bars all allow 18 year olds but arent much fun without a drink.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are always there to help. Most of the time, professors have office hours and all of the classes are good quality.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: No complaints. Sometimes the rooms are small depending on the residence hall, but they're always clean and you get what you pay for for the most part.

3 College Freshman

Administration: RAs aren't very strict on campus, but if you're being really obvious, you can get in some trouble. There's really no rules about visitation, so you can have people over whenever.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health center is there when needed. Campus is always really safe, campus police is always around along with Oxford city police. There's also emergency phones around campus.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are plenty of under 21 bars and pretty much something to do pretty much any time you want on campus. Nightlife here is great and everyone loves to go out and have a good time.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The professors here are great and supportive for every major! There are advisors and support for every major.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am in the pre-med program and it was really simple to get into.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Hockey is really big here on campus. Not so much other sports.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The houses here have a lot of character. The names they all have make them unique. If you don't want to live in a house though, there are plenty of other options off campus like apartment complexes.

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.
