Extraordinarily talented - Miami welcomes the class of 2018

Students move in with help from parents.

Miami welcomes the class of 2018. Move in day 2014 is Aug. 21 and classes begin Aug. 25.

Miami University welcomes the incoming class of 2018 — “an extraordinarily talented and diverse group of first-year students,” according to Michael Kabbaz, vice president for enrollment management and student success.

"We are delighted that these exceptional students have many options to consider when picking a college but have chosen Oxford to spend their next four years,” Kabbaz said.

Following a record number of applications, 25,302, the enrolled class of 2018 of more than 3,600 touts an average ACT score of 27.7 – the highest in university history. Of this year’s class, 29 percent scored a 30 or higher on the ACT and 38 percent scored a 29 or higher. 

Thirty-four percent graduated in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. More than half, 56 percent, of the incoming first-year class received college credit from advanced placement, post secondary or other programs.

University officials also report that domestic diversity represents 12.8 percent of the first-year class. Students come from 39 states and 33 other countries. The international and out-of-state students make up 43.6 percent of the class (7.4 percent are international).

“I have no doubt these students will find tremendous success during their time here and even more importantly and impressive will be to witness their accomplishments and the way in which they impact the world after graduation," Kabbaz added.

Incoming students' first academic connection is having read the same book over summer, Freedom Summer: The Savage Season of 1964 That Made Mississippi Burn and Made America a Democracy.  At convocation this Friday, [Editor's note: Due to threat of thunderstorms, Convocation was postponed. It will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24.] they will hear from the book's author and discuss the book in small groups led by faculty, staff and graduate students.

New facilities open on campus
Incoming first-year students will enjoy the use of the Armstrong Student Center, which opened officially last winter. In addition to the dining options available in the Armstrong Student Center, MapleStreet Station (winter 2014) and the new Western Dining Commons greet students with meal options. All dining concepts were created with student input throughout the design and planning process.
