Well, like most things in life, Miami isGeography and Geosciences
Well, like most things in life, Miami is what you make of it. Friends are out there, there is a variety of activities...but that's like most colleges. I can compare Miami and Oxford to the graduate school I attend now (a distant state school of similar population and demographics)- Oxford is a better town, Miami students party more, Miami is a little more challenging, Miami professors care more and are of higher academic status than those at other universities. So I guess I feel quite positively towards Miami. But remember: no college will make you happy or successful if you don't really want to be.

You get in collegeBusiness - Management and Administration
You get in college as you get in life,what you put in. I am proud to be an alumni of Miami as it is a well recognized university. All of the choices are available both socially and educationally in Oxford. It is a small town nestled away from the big city, but the big city is still close enough.

To me, Miami is the perfect college setting.Political Science
To me, Miami is the perfect college setting. On the surface, everything looks like I had imagined. Gorgeous red-brick buildings, beautifully landscaped gardens, and heated sidewalks. Everything is immaculate. Even the students are what you would expect to see at a college this pretty. Dressed fashionably in jcrew, most students can be seen smiling, even while scurrying to and from class in the winter cold. The quality of education is fantastic. Work is relevant, not random. The instructors are helpful, and positive, albeit office hours are sometimes impractical. The students are positive about school work, and during the week, academics usually take precedence over going out. During the weekend, the scene is huge, with random parties on nearly every block. Uptown is the place to be thursday through saturday nights, with a variety of fantastic resturants, bars, and night clubs. One of the Clubs, First Run, was ranked by Playboy magazine as one of the top college bars in the country. Believe me, it's deserving of it's ranking. Playboy also ranks Miami as the second hottest campus in the nation. Once again, believe me, it's deserving of it's ranking.

Worried about the freshman 15? Have no fear, the REC center is near. One of the top ten workout facilities in the nation, the REC is home to weight rooms, basketball and volleyball courts, racquetball courts, indoor soccer, indoor running track, massive climbing wall, Olympic sized swimming pool, diving well, leisure pool, spa, outdoor pursuit center, yoga and kickboxing classes and the like. Pretty much anything you could want. Free for students. The place is unbeliveable.

This semseter, Nappy Roots, Counting Crows, and John Mayer all played at Millet Hall. All three concerts were awesome.Basically, if you're looking for a fun, positive, well rounded college experience with an emphasis on learning, Miami is the place to go. It's one of those well kept secrets, and truly deserving of it's Public Ivy tag.
