Miami University-Oxford Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (20)
Miami University is a top-notch undergraduate institution that will not only prepare you for your career, but also your future. The student experience is unlike any other that I have seen or heard about. When I went into Miami, I was half of the person I was today. Lots of schools advertise student involvement, but Miami means it.
Miami provided a pretty good education for me. As with any institution, it had both pros and cons. I found that it could be difficult to connect to others and the student body was filled with stereotypical college kids. The University itself provided some support, but not as much as I would have liked especially during the first few years. Once I no longer needed the support it didn't bother me when it wasn't there. It was hard to navigate through Miami for the first two to three years, but I did finally feel like my final year it improved. The upper level professors are a lot better than the lower level ones since they tend to treat you more like an adult than a child.
Attending Miami university was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The faculty care tremendously about student success. The faculty members see potential in students and help them grow academically and professionally. The alumni network is strong - Miami alumni are proud of their alma mater and form strong connections with alumni across the country. I made lifelong friends at Miami and would highly recommend the university!
Earning my education degree from Miami University was the best decision I ever made. I was able to step into a classroom my freshmen year, shadow at a variety of schools, was paired with the best mentor and years later still receive career advice. Thanks to Miami University I am a part of a network of professionals to help me advance in my career. Not only did I learn a lot but I was able to study abroad in Oviedo, Spain where my love for Spanish culture and language flourished.
Miami University is a great college for individuals who would like a challenge as well a great college experience filled with numerous opportunities to engage with multiple organization and cultural diversity. Miami University is a school that prides itself on college excellence and have several programs that support those students who strive to achieve such academic excellence.
I absolutely love the campus, the instructors, and the students. Miami University is a great place to earn your degree while growing as an individual. The classes are challenging, yet engaging. It is evident that the professors care about their students' success. Outside of academics, there are many ways to get involved. With numerous clubs and activities, everyone can find their niche.
Miami University is a strong academic institution. My undergraduate experience was rigorous and I learned a great amount of subject matter. My degree in kinesiology was not easy to obtain, I had to work very hard for it during the 3 years that I was there. It is a great starting point, but what I did not realize and wish that I would have understood more going into the program is that unless you plan to pursue a higher education degree more than likely at the doctoral level, your career choices in that particular field are limited and are not high or even moderate salary. I am now pursuing a master's degree in an area that is in an area/field that is completely different than my undergraduate degree in kinesiology and health. My master's degree will be in Education and Human Development.
The culture at this school is very difficult to fit into. There is not much diversity of students. I felt very out of place. The academic program was very rigorous though, and I feel that I learned a lot and have a degree from a well respected University.
Miami University was a wonderful institution that cared a lot about the students. Although home to over 16,000 undergraduates, Miami felt small at times because most class instruction was individualized and specific to classes of fewer students. The rigor of the curriculum was never overly challenging and was just the right fit to enhance learning. There is a place for so many people at Miami and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to have a great college experience.
Despite some of the impressions of Miami University, I was able to find my niche within the school. My college experience was greatly enhanced by my friend group and I believe it really can be for everyone. On top of it, I had a very flexible program and was able to tailor my degrees to my exact interests. I wish I could attend Miami again!
