I'm really looking forward to attending Miami. I've heard many great things about the school from its professors and academics to its student organizations and campus life, not to mention the beauty of its campus! It is ranked 3rd best national university for undergraduate teaching by USNews, ahead of Dartmouth, Brown, and Stanford, etc. It is also one of the original eight Public Ivy schools, a group of publicly funded universities considered as providing a quality of education comparable to those of the Ivy League. In addition, the renowned poet Robert Frost called Miami's campus "The most beautiful campus that ever there was."

My experience at Miami University has been short lived but has been an experience that I am grateful to have the opportunity to have. The things that I like about Miami are the campus, people, and the wide variety of class options. Also, the team of advisors have been really great, helping me out on my artistic journey. I will say that one thing that I would like to change about the school would be the grading of some teachers. I've experienced unreasonable, unethical, and just completely unfair professors grading methods. Overall, Miami has been good to me for the year that I have experienced it!
As several others have stated, the campus is absolutely gorgeous. The professors also focus heavily on teaching rather than just research, and in my experience most profs genuinely care about student success. The only downside is that students who don't fit a certain image may feel a bit out of place. If partying and/or Greek life isn't your thing, your social options are limited. That being said, it's still very possible to find friends who share your interests through clubs and organizations!
