4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am not very familiar with the career prospects of Miami, since I am only a first year. However, I have heard that most students who graduate are usually offered a job within six months of graduation. However, I have had a great opportunity to work at our Starbucks on campus, and I have even been promoted to student manager. That is something that Miami has offered me that I has caused me to be extremely grateful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy my dorm since it is very clean and the staff are all very kind. I love my RD and RA's because they are always available and offer such amazing advice and help.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am just not a huge fan of the Greek life here at Miami since many of the people focus too much on partying and not enough on academics.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are actually a very prominent part of Miami. I just wish that they would focus more on the arts and less on sports, since not everyone is interested in sports.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, I am very grateful for my experience here at Miami and I would not trade it for anything. The only downside is that some of the people focus too much or alcohol and partying rather than academics.

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe. There have been a few cases of sexual assault but there always is on a college campus. I have felt safe and as long as you are smart and are always with someone after dark and late hours you will be okay.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The course are interesting and there are a lot to chose from. Something for everyone. The professors are very helpful, knowledgeable, and care for the students. They are always wanting to help.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of job and internship possibilities. I have heard of many people getting jobs secured before they even graduate.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in McKee which is in western campus so it's far away from everything but the building is nice and clean and the rooms are big.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek so I'm not sure about being in a sorority or fraternity.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The varsity sports aren't the best in their leauges but the Rec center is really nice! And there are a lot of club sports to join.

4 College Freshman

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's definitely nothing special. It's good if you need somewhere to live, but not much more than that. Try to get a single if you can.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school's pretty good overall. A little disappointed in the future meal plan since it pretty much takes money that I will not use.

Athletics: Nobody cares about any sport except for hockey.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life at Miami is incredibly dominant in the social scene. If you are in a dope frat you run the campus. Frats on campus all have really nice houses, annex houses, and throw huge parties. Each of the top frats get all the hot girls and have the most fun. Sounds great right? Wrong. Greek life at Miami is a beautiful thing, it's exactly what one imagines greek life to be, but its held back by the administration which is systematically trying to kick every fraternity off campus. Our current president (Hodge) has had a vendetta against fraternity life for his entire career and now that he is in his last year he is going scorched earth on the greek system. If most of the top frats can stay on campus for the rest of this year things should be better since our incoming president seems to be pretty pro greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wish this degree was an MS in Environmental Biology instead of an MA, but I am going to learn as much as I can and hopefully I can gain employment. Again, I am an online student.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: This is really a n/a for me, I am a long distance learner.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: They have been in the middle of renovating all the dorms here. In addition they have added numerous upper class men housing options on campus that are very nice.

Greek Life: We have an amazing tradition of Greek life here at Miami. We are called the mother of Fraternities because we have so many Alpha chapters here. Additionally, even though school have cracked down on Greek life the Greek community here stands together to try and prevent Greek life from ending.

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.
