Miami is just right. Its probably been said a million times before, but Miami is a big school with a small school feel. Walking around campus, I see lots of people I recognize and know. But at the same time, they're will always be someone new to meet. You can be sitting in classes with 15 people or with 400 people. The big picture: MU is amazing. You can get a great education while managing to have a LOT of fun.
You can make academics at Miami as easy or as difficult as you want. Its a good idea to check with older students on which classes to take, as well as which classes NOT to take. Students aren't that competitive with each other. Some students take their studies seriously, and some of us party a little too much. It can be as challenging or easy as u want it to be.
Well, not going to lie, Miami is not very diverse. The majority of the students are heterosexual and white. Sometimes, students are a little closed-minded. But you will definitely meet people who force you to examine your beliefs and thoughts, and most of these closed-minded people become more open over the years. A lot of Miami students are from Ohio, but the majority of my friends are from out-of-state. Different types of students interact, and people really like to mingle. Although most people have a small group of friends who they make at the beginning of freshman year, everyone likes to branch out and make new friends.
