Campus Quality: Although Miami is often critiqued for the older buildings, they are currently undergoing MASSIVE reconstruction to both academic and residence halls.

The new student center is amazing, it's going to be a really great replacement to the too-small Shriver Center.

Maplestreet Station, Etheridge Hall, McFarland Hall, The New Western Residence Halls, Kreger Hall & Anderson Hall are just a few of the new/updated buildings on campus in the past year.

Academics: Miami has amazing faculty who are truly devoted to their students. Many of my classes are 20 people or less, and all of my larger lecture classes have had small break out sessions of 30 or less. The academic experience at Miami is truly awesome, and you will learn so much.
The registration process, on the other hand--- infamous. Classes fill up extremely quickly and it can be really hard to complete your major requirements when a class is only offered occasionally.
Rinella Learning Center offers tutoring to students who need help, they're really great and everyone who I know who has gone in for assistance has had a great time.
King Library is the ultimate study spot for pretty much everybody-- good luck getting a seat at night.

Academics: I am undeclared but I have really enjoyed all the help from my advisors.

Drug Safety: Miami is a "work hard, play hard" school. It seems that they have recently cracked down on Marijuana usage in the dorms, as that was becoming an annoyance. People who choose to smoke off campus have nothing to worry about, but smoking in a freshman dorm will inevitably lead to at least an awkward conversation with an RA.

Transportation: Miami's bus system (BCRTA) can seem very confusing at first-- but once you get the hang of it, it's quite easy! Buses go to walmart, grocery stores, uptown, to academic buildings and all across campus. If you want to go to Cincinnati on the weekends there is a bus company that makes regular stops. Although Oxford is a little isolated, as long as you have a friend with a car for trips to the Hamilton Target or the mall, you should be fine using public transport all year.

Weather: Ohio's weather is both a benefit and a disadvantage. It's really lovely on campus in the fall, and when the leaves change everything is absolutely beautiful. Come February, you will be huddled up like an emperor penguin shuffling to class every day-- it gets COLD. However, as someone who has always lived in cities that experience "all four seasons", I have found the weather to be more of an annoyance than an actual problem.

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.
