College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I can't really give an informed rating because I'm currently a freshman so I haven't searched for off campus housing yet but this is what I've heard from people who have. Miami requires that students live on campus in the dorms for their first two years and it's popular for students to move into a house off campus their junior year. However these houses are very hard to get and I've heard that you have to put down a security deposit a year in advance to land your position. The apartments on campus are pretty nice and relatively easy to get but sort of expensive. Nothing compared to the cost of living on campus, though.

Majors: Great nutrition program for the most part. some teachers push harder than others. they really drive you down a narrow path unless you are sure thats what you want to be.

College Freshman

Party Scene: not a partier--with preps and thats like1243265653% of this school.

Off-Campus Dining: everything in a college town is open late---same goes for oxford. not many restaurants, mostly bars, fast food, pizza, skethy places, but driving wont get you far. still not much out here in the middle of nowhere

4 College Freshman

Athletics: miami football sucks, but theres alot of school spirit in most of the sports

Campus Housing: I enjoyed the size of my dorm. my hall, Porter, was not in the best condition. way too many midnight fire alarms in the cold...and for no fire. Its spacious and the bathrooms are fairly clean, some showers don't work right but you just shower when no one else is using the good ones. It was right next to the rec which made working out alot easier and motivating. also it was next to harris, mackraken and maple..soo easy to get to.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of students who live off campus, lots who live in their own houses/apartments with clever names often pertaining to drinking and the street names as well. From what Ive heard, if you have friends who get long and like to get your own space, living off campus (which is basically on campus because of how close the houses are) is a good way to go -- from what I hear. But you live on campus your first two years typically.

3 College Freshman

Administration: um its really hard to rate a school because Ive never changed schools before. But after attending Miami for one quick semester, its pretty clear. they arent looking to get you in trouble but if you are OBVIOUS about drinking, then you will get caught. But its easy to get away with in your dorms if you are underage. -experience

Health & Safety: I feel safe, even walking alone in the dark at night. The sidewalks are close to the dorms and theres blue-light things every few hundred feet. I think its at parties and afterwards where individuals are in danger, their ability to lookout for themselves is lost.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I initially recieved a small scholarship. But they knew I was out of state, just had to sell our house, and they gave me shit. My mom argued for hours on the phone, sending letters, complaints, and finally got me SOME money, still no work study. absolutely ridiculous--but not entirely Miami's fault. Its just financial aid in general.

Overall Experience: I am not considered about struggling to find a career coming out of the business school.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Racially, little diversity. A decent amount of political, religious, and economic diversity. Not much sexual orientation diversity. Overall, a pretty WASPy campus with a sizable amount of Catholic students. Everyone is very accepting.

Majors: Any major in the business school should serve you well in live if you put in the effort. The accounting, marketing, and entrepreneurship programs are the highest rated with the finance and supply chain departments also being highly respected in the business community.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The business school offers many different majors and makes it easy/encourages students to pursue multiple interests within the business school or from another department entirely.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The business school is recruited by many of the world's top companies. All of the Big Four accounting firms have offices within FSB and are among the most active at Miami. Internships often lead to jobs or connections that are crucial in finding a job. To my knowledge, all internships offered by companies through FSB are paid.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The Farmer School of Business is one of the best in the country for a reason. The students are highly intelligent and excited to learn, and the faculty is very knowledgeable and willing to teach. Miami produces some of the world's foremost leaders in many fields, most notably, business, politics, and literature.

Campus Food: The food itself, is actually pretty good. The only problem is, many places have weird hours and are overpriced. This is easily remedied however, because Uptown is within walking distance and offers better food, usually for less too.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Miami is a party school. The kids here work extremely hard to be successful and then hit the bars. Bars in Oxford are what almost all bars should be. You can hit up any of the big dance club like bars (Like Brick or New Bar) or a more traditional bar (Like 45 or O'Pub) or even Steinkellers (Nothing but imported German Beer). House parties here as also very big and important, but the bars are what sets Miami apart. Almost everything is 18+ so you can have fun starting syllabus week.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of Off-Campus options. Anything from Annex Greek life houses, Apartments above restaurants, shops, and bars, to upscale apartments, and housing communities featuring gyms and pools.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Farmer School of Business students are extremely driven and intelligent. Teachers have experience in their field of study and are there to offer academic as well as career advice. The business school in particular pushes students to their maximize potential while making class exciting to attend.

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.
