The academics is great! Most of the professors really do care about you and your success. The class sizes are relatively small except the basic courses everyone has to take. The campus is just gorgeous, and the fall sunsets are breathtaking! It's difficult to get around though because it's a college town basically in the middle of nowhere. I wish there was more diversity. A lot of people are from small towns in Ohio. It's not that people are mean, it's just that a lot of students don't go out of their comfort zone to meet people that are different from them. So, it can be a little rough when you're from a diverse background. BUT DON'T WORRY! The campus is big enough that you will eventually find your sense of belonging. :)

I love being a Miami student! Our facilities and campus are beautiful, the professors truly care about students, the campus culture is unique, and this school really does prepare you for a job after graduation. If you're hoping to pursue a career in business or fashion, this is a great school in Ohio to bust into that world. Miami alums are incredibly connected within the business world--we have countless alums that are CEOs, CMOs, etc. Additionally, we have a great fashion organization, MUF&D, that puts on the largest student-run fashion show in the US. Miami definitely has a party culture and heavy Greek life. So if you don't love going out, just get involved with other organizations and make friends in different ways. Highly recommend coming here!
High commitment to student success, wonderful academic programs and countless ways to get involved. Miami is committed to making sure that undergraduates have all the tools they need to be successful. There are many clubs and intramural sports to help you get involved on campus. Oxford is a textbook college town, which works great for some and not the best for others. I would highly recommend touring, that is how I realized it was the perfect school for me. I am in the business school and couldn't be happier!
