3 College Freshman

Parking: The parking situation is okay, but I wish there was more parking available nearer to the academic buildings.

4 College Freshman

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

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: You can find a frat party almost any night. There are a lot of bars open uptown and there are people there every night.

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.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus is mostly white. However, there are a lot of international students.

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I am a student athlete. The faculty and facilities are awesome at Miami.

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's not too bad. As long as you don't make insanely stupid choices, you probably won't get in trouble.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many different options for places to eat.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Many students are involved in Greek life and love it. Sororities are not allowed to have chapter houses, so sophomore Greek students live in designated wings of residence halls on "Sorority Quad." Other upper classmen in sororities live off campus with a mix of their sorority sisters and other friends. Fraternities have their own chapter houses that are very nice.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Their are big parties almost every night. The bars are also fun places to go to any night of the week. There are many options for the nightlife. Many people take part.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are very pretty on the outside. The insides are a little old, but they are nice and clean. The rooms are pretty small, but it's manageable. They have nice basements with recreational rooms, kitchens, study areas, and laundry rooms. It is a very social atmosphere, with the basements being good places for gathering. Groups of dorms are very close to one another, so it is easy to go to other dorms to hang out with friends. Instead of selecting housing, living learning communities are selected. Most people are able to get their first choice. This allows students to live in residence halls with other students with similar interests.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's nice and warm in the fall. It's cold and wet in the late fall and winter, but we get to be home for a good portion of winter with the new 6 week winter term.

3 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Majors: Not able to comment, I just switched majors.

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.
