Miami University may sound like it belongs in the heat-stricken weather of the sandy beaches. But luckily for Ohio students, the school is located on East High Street in temperate Oxford, Ohio.
Programs are available in many major fields of study including:
• Clinical Laboratory Science
• Computer Science
• Health Studies
• Interior Design
• And many more!
Student life at Miami University is filled with clubs, social programs, great dining areas, and a fantastic health and wellness center. The school’s athletic program is also strong, with the Redhawks participating in most major sports and the football team playing in the prestigious MAC conference.
If you complete the FAFSA by the deadline (usually in March), you could be eligible for federal loans, grants, work-study and other benefits. Scholarships are also available to those who qualify. Miami University automatically enters its students to be considered for academic, departmental and donor scholarships.
If the goal of your educational experience is to find a career post-graduation, then the career center has what you need to make those goals a reality. There is resume help, mock interviews, career advising, job and internship searches, career fairs and other services.

I think all schools, outside of their categorization, are alike. They each have those professors who love their jobs and care for their students (which makes students love that particular professor and class.) I think of Howard Blanning, Linda Conaway, Mike Griffith, Dr. Bill Doan and Dr. Paul Jackson from the Department of Theatre. I loved them all. In their own way, they nurtured my talents as an actor; encouraged my amateur make-up artistry skills and challenged me to care about the work I did. And with the good comes the bad, right? Each school also has professors who are incompetent jerks who forget their students are young adults most likely either: away from home for the first time, are preparing to be incorporated into ‘the real world,’ or anything and everything in between. These professors are overcome by their false sense of authority and make it their life’s goal to make each impressionable young student who crosses their path as miserable as possible. Miami wasn’t any different in that aspect. My overall experience at Miami University was okay. I think I had the average experience. I went far away from home; stayed out late partying; stayed up all night cramming; and I event went on a trip for Spring Break once. I’m a little bitter now though. Not because of any particular situation I encountered at Miami but because I never should have gone. I simply could not afford to attend a private University. Financing your education is probably the single most important detail when it comes to your education. I would tell any student looking to go to school- MAKE SURE YOU ARE ABLE TO FUND YOUR EDUCATION!!!!!!!! I had a great time while I was there: I have fond memories, lots of pictures and I even still keep in contact with my fellow alumni. But was it worth the massive debt that I now owe? Absolutely not! I could have had the same, if not better experience attending a public school right here in California…STUDENT LOANS are evil! Stay away!!!!!!
Miami University is a good school. The academics provided to the students is really good. The school lacks in diversity but overall is a great place for any student looking for a good school in the midwest. It does need help with career placement and campus housing as well.
