What Students Are Saying

4.19 Average Rating
This beautiful campus has something for everyone. There are thousands of clubs and activities and even though we may not look diverse, the range of personalities is unlike any other. The medium class class is the best of both worlds; not overwhelmingly large and you make great relationships with your peers.
Emily from Cincinnati, OH
Miami is an amazing place to go to school, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my years here. The campus is stunning, the academics are great, and the people are fun. I have never met so many people who study so hard during the week and have so much fun on the weekend.
Jeremy from Toledo, OH
miami university is a beautiful campus full of amazing professors with tons of opportunities. although it may not seem like a good fit for someone who doesn't fit into the miami stereotype, everyone can find their place. there are countless ways to get involved and countless paths to follow.
