Miami University College Campus reviews
Robert Frost was right. The campus and facilities are a cut above. The gym is state of the art. The equestrian facility is walking distance, immediately adjacent to the campus, and well maintained. more »
It’s one of the prettiest campuses I’ve visited. They have a common brick colonial design to the buildings, large quads and green spaces and many mature majestic trees. Large enough that it’s... more »
I VISITED THE CAMPUS WHEN MY DAUGHTER ATTENDED THE UNIVERSITY. ITS REFERRED TO AS "THE PUBLIC IVY" IN REFERENCE TO THE PRESTIGIOUS IVY LEAGUE UNIVERSITIES. I FOUND THE SCHOOL REALLY BEAUTIFUL AND VERY HELPFUL TO THE STUDENTS. SHE GRADUATED FROM THERE AND CONTINUED TO FURTHER SCHOOLING AND IS NOW A PHYSICIAN IN CHICAGO. I ATTENDED A FOOTBALL GAME WHILE THERE FOR THE WEEKEND AND ALSO SOME OF THE INTRAMURAL GAMES. THE STUDENTS WORK HARD, BUT THEY ALSO PARTY HARDY. I MET OTHER PARENTS WHO HAD GRADUATED FROM MIAMI OF OHIO AND SENT THEIR KIDS THERE. I WAS PLEASED TO SEE THAT ALL PEOPLE I CAME IN CONTACT WITH WERE ACCOMODATING AND VERY HELPFUL TO US ALL.
Spent 4 1/2 years here and grew up in the area. Although it’s a university it’s still fairly conservative. Most faculty I’ve interacted with (in business, psych, English & interactive media) are good. A few are exceptional and take great care of their students. Show them that you care, speak out in the classroom, and find your mentors early on. Miami is what you make of it. You can find a party every day of the week or keep your head down and study. Find a balance between the two! The campus is beautiful and walkable. A largely safe place for students (sketchiest part of Oxford is probably out near Wal-mart, nowhere close to campus). Undergrad, research, & study abroad opportunities are top notch. Uptown has a decent selection of food and drinks, considering how small it is. Rec sports center and mental health faculties are great for students. I have a few small gripes about Mimi. The schools often felt siloed from each other (humanities, business, etc.). Tuition & fees would rise every year (a national problem). They’re always closing down sections of campus to build build build. Parking also got worse and worse each year, even if you had a red pass. I also wished the international and domestic students would interact with each other more, and that faculty would be more considerate of the former. We have a lot to learn from each other! It’s okay to think differently. It’s important to challenge your comfort zone to grow. Overall I loved my experience here. I look back at my memories of Miami with fondness. They help shape who I am. I’m grateful for my education and hope to make my family, friends, and mentors proud. I know it’s cheesy as hell but I think Miami’s phrase “to think that in such a place, I led such a life” has quite the ring!
