I like how the professors are very understanding and very educated. Even though the campus isn't what you would expect I choose to make the most out of it. I think that miles college is what you make it! any college is about what you make it . Everyone experiences college differently, so people say college isn't for them and that's fine . I wouldn't suggest coming to miles for a 4 year college its nice but not for everyone.
My experience here at Miles College has been a wonderful experience the reason I say that is because doing my years at the college I have done many things such as join the band and also cross a sorority name Tau Beta Sigma National Honorary Band Sorority. While traveling with the band I have had the opportunity to visit many city such as Chicago, Tennessee, and Atlanta. I am also apart of the Honors Curriculum where I have received many cords for my accomplish. The things I like about Miles is that the school let the students have actives on campus an also the work system is a another thing I like about the school they make sure you have everything done in order to attend Miles. Miles needs to get more parking space an stop giving students fees they have to pay such as laundry, an dorm usage fee what's the point of that if we already have to pay $100 to get a dorm every year and paying for your housing plan.
