Miami University Reviews
Excellent school & well known through out the country with Alumni all over the world. Excellent placement in jobs & opportunities post graduation. Double majors are encouraged . A wonderful beautiful campus & ranked very well academically! Can’t say enough an Ivy League experience at a state school . The food is never ending of choices for the students & the dorms are very comfortable - a great experience socially academically overall . Best bang for your buck for a student and a parent perspective
Miami University has everything you can think of from education to College life. Rated the top 5 college town be Forbes magazine and one of the top academic school in the country. The best professors you can think of that have your back on your incredible journey to adulthood.
Enjoyed my trip to Miami, hope to get in and experience more of what this amazing campus has to offer. It is very clean, modern, and has a wonderful amount of things to go to and do. When we went, they had a carnival going on for the students. This college cares about its kids!
Graduated in 2015. Outside Ohio no one knows about this school and alumni connections outside the midwest are tough to find. However, it provided a solid undergraduate education with the diverse GE classes required for graduation. Only go here if you intend on going to graduate school.
As a minority student with no wealth, I was really nervous to come to Miami. It has a reputation for being overly preppy (which, for the most part, is true). But since being here, I've found my people and had so much fun! If you're in the same boat as I was, don't be afraid to come here. The party scene is great and if that's not your style, there's still tons of events and lots to do. The classes are hard but the professors make it better. Overall, it's been a great first year
The faculty are very passionate about teaching and helping students learn. I feel that I am given everything I need to be successful at Miami.
It's a great campus, with many opportunities. The ability to take classes at all campuses, regardless of "home campus" is a blessing. If you are a regional student, and want to experience the main campus feel without paying main campus prices, you can do that. Also, you can bounce back and forth between which campus you take majority of your classes from through a simple application process. Also, many majors are available at the Regionals that give you a Miami education!
Miami University does an excellent job of preparing students for their future as successful working adults. The network of alumni are outstanding. And they are everywhere! I have worked for several Fortune 2000 companies in Chicago and Boston and Miami alum occupy senior executive positions at every company. The best thing is every one of them has been supportive and welcoming once we share our favorite memories of our Miami experience.
Miami University was a great college. The overall atmosphere was so pure and amazing. There were so many students just walking around town and the student life was extrordinary. Oxford, OH was rated the number one college town by Forbes, and it definitely lived up to the expectation. Also, I attended a football game when I was there and it was awesome to see all of the students show up and cheer on their school.
This university allows me to learn from very qualified professionals and grow academically. This campus could work non its diversity but there are spaces on campus that are safe spaces for people of color. This university gives great opportunities and connections to the students in attendance.
Beauty on campus. Faculty who are truly dedicated to the best outcomes for their students. Abroad and research opportunities you would never even imagine until you get there. An engaging community of peers with 500+ ways to get involved in what you are passionate about. A work hard, play hard atmosphere that challenges you in the best ways
This university is amazing. The professors are there to help you achieve your goals or are there for any questions you may have. The campus is beautiful and really easy to walk around. Currently, they are working on making the campus more accessible for students with disabilities. Overall, a great school!
I wish that Oxford had a bit more to offer (bowling alleys, movie theatres, etc) because it's hard to get off campus and do things if you don't have friends with cars, but Miami and Ox are really good at creating cool events for students. I like the diversity in opinions here, but Greek Life is very big and brings those involved together while sometimes separating those not involved. Faculty is helpful, food is pretty good but expensive, and I've liked the dorms I've been in so far.
I loved the atmosphere. It felt like home as soon as I walked onto the campus. Everywhere you turned, it felt like you could take a picture and the scenery was just perfect.
Saying this as a Spanish major: The Spanish program at Miami is a joke and a waste of credit hours that could be spent taking classes for a useful major. After the fifth semester Spanish class, which is what a student with a 4 or 5 on the AP exam would come in with credit for, most of the classes offered are BS literature classes that do nothing to develop Spanish proficiency. There is a linguistics track offered as an alternative to taking literature classes for the Spanish major/minor, but good luck getting into the Spanish linguistics classes if you're not in the honors program. Even at the 300/400-level, it's very common for professors to frequently use English to clarify things in their lectures because the students often haven't developed sufficient Spanish proficiency if they haven't gotten to study abroad. One would have better luck getting fluent in Spanish from a gap year in South America than from a Spanish major at Miami.
I have been to Miami for about 5 years know, i have had some good experiences and some bad. Miami in general is very good to its students but i feel like where i have ran into problems was with professors, some professors just didn't care enough about its students they are just there for the money and that is it.
Miami is a magical place filled with an abundance of beautiful people who also work their asses off in class. Work hard play hard.
Everything about Miami has made me a better person and student. Miami has great professors that make you want to learn and better yourself.
Miami University has given a great diverse learning experience. I have been able to experience many areas in the nutrition field. All of the teachers have been accommodating.
Miami is a great jumping off point no matter what your interests are. If you find something you're interested in, you will always find the support to pursue those interests whether that is in an existing club or program, or work with a professor or staff member to get you where you want to be. Housing can be kind of a headache, especially for upperclassmen. Dining is pretty mediocre, and can be a nightmare if you have dietary needs, considering Miami puts up a false front of being allergy and dietary restriction friendly. It's on the pricey side, but Miami gives you tons of value if you're willing to take advantage of all it has to offer.
