3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Half the student population comes from wealthier families, and it's obvious from their actions. It's easy to find your niche here on campus, but I don't care for a lot of people in my classes.

Campus Food: The food is good and easy to find all over campus at any time of the day. However, students living on campus receive a 60% discount with their meal plans, making meals reasonably priced. There is a choice for an off campus student meal plan, with a 30% discount, but most off campus students opt for eating off campus because the on campus prices for food are outrageous.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Every year I have been here, I have had a problem with financial aid. On several occasions, they have lost documents I have turned in on time, causing me to have late fees and to order new forms, which sometimes have led to a decline in the amount of aid I received. As I depend solely on my financial aid to put me through college, I am not happy with the inconsistencies of an incompetent financial aid office.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: A lot of crime happens on campus and the heavier part of town that holds all the clubs.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It is much better and relatively cheaper to live off campus, but it is still far away from campus, and the landlords of the town are not professional with college students.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: A new student center is being built, causing construction to block several facilities, but it will be state of the art when it is finished.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: Greeks live both on and off campus, and a majority of the student population is made up of Greeks. They are very wealthy and tend to be more snobby in their interactions with non-Greeks.

Technology: I take my computer with me everywhere and it is a very convenient tool on campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms was convenient, yet too costly, but living off-campus also has its downfalls when it comes to finding affordable living situations close to campus.

2 College Senior

Parking: There is a lot of construction on campus to create more room; however, there is less room for cars to park.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed my time here at my college, but as I advance in my education, I realize that the school focuses too much on the liberal education aspect and my degree doesn't offer as many classes based on what I'm learning. My degree is for creative writing, yet I am required to take maybe 3 classes solely for writing out of the 20+ I am required to take. All the other ones are plain literature classes, which I do not enjoy as much.

3 College Senior

Administration: The strictness is mostly focused on underage drinking and parking, and is pretty average in other aspects.

2 College Senior

Transportation: The transportation system at my school was recently changed, and it is much worse. The buses do not match up to the new class times, and although they offer more accessibility to new areas of the town, they do not stop as often at the places I really need to go.

3 College Senior

Diversity: The campus has some diversity. Not as much as other colleges I've noticed, but still enough that I feel like I meet a lot of different people.

2 College Senior

Local Area: It's pretty mixed. Half the locals enjoy the college crowd, and the other half judge them. While there are some cool local attractions, they get old quickly. The stores and restaurants are expensive, and I often go to the nearby city to shop.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: They have some 18+ options, but most are 21 and over only. Lots of dancing available.

Administration: If you are in the right place, doing the right things you will be ok. The police are there to protect you, not get you into trouble. Be careful if you decide to underage drink, consequences are nothing to mess around with.

Drug Safety: Since Miami students come from money there are drugs available and I guess "the good kind". However, I am against that and so I do not see any of it.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Absolutely beautiful campus with lots of tree and greenery. Be sure to take walk to watch the RedHawk athletics throughout the year!

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Miami's students are where you will find all of the current styles in clothing and glam. Although there is a great party scene, you will find the students who went out on Saturday, studying on Sunday.

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.
