Carrie - 05/02/2022

Miami University is a beautiful campus and it's very beautiful seasonally. The professors here are really sweet and engaging with their students as well as some of the other students in the classroom. Only downside I'd say is the location and amount of nearby shops.

Noel - 08/12/2021

Miami University is a great school that has a beautiful campus. The class sizes are usually more to the smaller side so your professor do remember your face by name. Also the professors keep their office hours pretty normal so there is always never really a change unless said in email.

Lily - 12/09/2020

I love Miami University-Oxford. Before visiting, it was on my list of colleges I was interested in, but once I took a tour and saw the beautiful campus, I knew I was home. I found a good group of friends pretty quickly, and there's always something to do if you're bored. I love going Uptown with my friends, especially the farmers market every Saturday morning, or the restaurants and bars on the weekends. Greek Life is a huge part of Miami's culture, but not everyone is Greek, and there's always a nice face and a smile everywhere you go.

Hilary - 12/04/2020

It is a very affordable Master's program that offers flexibility for busy working professionals. What I love most about this online program is that my class projects are driven by my unique interests. Being part of this program is very exciting, I am learning so much and I am getting so much inspiration from my peers.

  5. What are the academics like at your school?

    Academics are surprisingly good. The professors really show that they care about students. Some class sizes are large, but it's easy to get mostly small classes. I have gotten to know many of my professors outside of class and they really want to help. My major is chemistry and I started to do research with a professor last semester. It's really easy to get involved in research, even early in Freshman year. Students are extremely helpful to one another, and the competitive atmosphere that I experience in high school has been replaced by lasting friendships with other students that I study with. We learn the subject together, but often get of track while talking about philosophical issues.

  6. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    It seems as if almost everyone is involved with Greek life in one way or another, be it in a social, service, business, or professional Greek association. Athletics are not very popular and are sparsely attended, leading to relatively low school spirit. The most popular sport is ice hockey, so be prepared for that. There are hundreds of clubs and organizations, so there is really something for everyone at Miami; you just have to be willing to go out and make the experience your own. Partying is a daily occurrence, and people go out every day/ night of the week. Drinking is the main attraction uptown on the weekends. Aside from that, Oxford is a fairly small and boring town. You can find other things to do, such as bowling, movies, and other activities on campus, but be prepared for a heavy drinking culture.

    The first thing that made me want to go to Miami was how beautiful the campus is. I used to go here for band camp when I was in high school and I just wanted to go to Miami from the moment I set foot there. Then I learned it was an awesome school. That made my decision stick. I actually got denied twice, but when I got accepted on the waitlist I instantly jumped at the chance.

  21. Describe the dorms.

    At Miami, students must live on campus their first two years at school. The dorms differ depending on location and if they are part of a Living Learning Community. Living Learning Communities are typically where first year students like. For example, I am in the Celebrate the Arts LLC. I chose this because of my love for theater. Choosing an LLC based on your interests really helps with the transition into college. You are living with others that share some similarities in activities, but also get to meet others with other interests. Dorms vary in sizes and locations, but overall are fairly clean and the rooms (I think!) are pretty large compared to other schools I have been to.
