Terrible, Terrible, Terrible.Quite BrightElectrical Engineering
Terrible, Terrible, Terrible. I transferred to this sub-standard, over-priced farce of a university from UC. The instructors either don't speak English, don't care or both. The course work is a joke. Good luck getting help from anyone. Thousands of dollars and 20+ credit hours later im gonna NOPE right back to UC. Seriously, screw this place. If you got half a brain and can tell what a quality education looks like, you will avoid this place like the black death.

I am a Russian Studies major, but thereQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I am a Russian Studies major, but there are NO Russian Studies crosslisted classes. Language is all there is, and for a place called the "Havighurst Center" to exist, this seems very sad.

The library is woeful when it comes to materials. Their DVD collection is poor, several subjects are neglected.

The school prides themselves on looks over substance in many ways, including incessant mowing when nothing needs mowing.

DO some comparison and ask hard questions before coming to MU. There are better schools, especially some really good private universities in Ohio. Don't be pulled-in by MU being a "best buy school" or "pretty" or "friendly to all needs."

It is not that I am unhappy with the school, but for all the hype, I expected so much more than I am getting.

Also, unless you are a freshman and starting out of high school, you are going to be censured by the student body. I found this "snobbery" appalling, especially as a "non-conventional student" (as I am regarded as being). I constantly find myself snubbed because others don't see me as a student.As I stated: DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE SENDING YOUR CHILD HERE.

LOL...I love reading reviewsBrightCommunications
LOL...I love reading reviews from people who consider themselves "bright" or "quite bright" and mis-spell every word with more than four letters! I attended Miami for 2 years and am leaving! Poor quality education and parties all the time=waste of money!
