The town in which Miami University is located can be described as a quintessential college town. Oxford is small and the majority of people who live here either attend or work for the University. The town is always full of college students, which is not a surprise since Oxford was founded as a home for the University.
But even though it is a very small town, students will be able to find everything they need for the typical college experience. Oxford is not only beautiful, but it is very welcoming, and the locals are helpful and seem to enjoy having the college students here. There is not a problem between the locals and Miami students, probably because just do not run into each other that much.
