3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Admittedly, Miami University isn't the most racially diverse school. However, the university is attempting to rectify this and I would admit that the campus economic diversity is great. I have friends who paid out of pocket for their education and friends on scholarships. I know some in the work-study program, and others who never need to work for their spending money. Is the campus diverse? Yes. Is it as diverse as I would like? Not yet.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I see a need for a personal computer and printer because I use mine all the time. For me, it would be annoying to have to walk around campus trying to find a computer or printer.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I have not gotten to start my communications major yet since I have not started my second semester of classes, however I am extremely excited to begin because it sounds like a great program with countless opportunities.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Academics are a huge reason I chose Miami. The professors are great as well as the classes. There is so much to choose from. There is a learning center that is great to take advantage of, as well as amazing tutors and a great library. I also love that the dorms have study rooms because that is where I do most of my homework and studying.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: None of my close friends drink or use drugs, so I honestly don't notice it at all. Some of my hallmates drink, but not to the point where they are puking in our bathroom.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Miami has a very diverse campus

4 College Freshman

Academics: Heavy workload but it will be worth it

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you like to party come to Miami of Ohio

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.
