Student Stories

A foundation for lifelong learning

Kaley SobanskiAs a senior Interior Design Student I could not be happier with my choice to attend Miami University. The Architecture and Interior Design Department has given me the foundation for lifelong learning and exploring. The dedicated faculty and students share a mutual passion for new and innovative ways of thinking about the design process. These past four years have allowed me to grow so much as a designer and gain a global perspective on how strong of an impact design has on our world."

Kaley Sobanski, Class of 2016

Alumni Stories

Diversity in interests and expertise

Brian AlbrechtThe architecture program at Miami provided me with both a detailed and broad education which stems from the great diversity in interests and expertise shown by both the faculty and other students. My education at Oxford has helped me on an almost daily basis since graduation and I could not imagine a better experience
