Students have also found community in Oxford, Ohio. The Korean American Student Association (KASA) is one of several hundred organizations at Miami. Their goal is to promote and expand the interest of the Korean culture, as well as to bring awareness and understanding of the diversity between both Korean and American cultures to Miami University and Oxford, Ohio. Contingent goals include activism of Korean and Asian American issues and working with international students coming from universities/colleges from Korea and providing them with an outlet of social involvement among the Korean population. This is designed to reach and expand from the first and second generation Koreans, adopted Koreans, and non-Koreans. Contact the KASA Adviser, So Young Lee, for more information at lees44@MiamiOH.edu.
Miami University is truly a rare, hidden gem. It is more than “the most beautiful campus that ever there was” (Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Robert Frost). It is the perfect place for students to experience college life and prepare for their amazing futures. The faculty are committed to seeing students find their passion and truly succeed. The opportunities are endless here! Students will find that the Miami network expands beyond the Oxford community. Once you become a part of the Miami community, you have a whole support group rooting for you wherever your career may take you – anywhere in the world!

Endres Associate Professor and Director, Higgin Kim Asia Business Program
I love that Miami holds a private-like vibe while being a public university. It is large enough to expose everyone to new ideas while remaining small enough for instructors to accommodate the needs of students, maximize the student learning outcomes, and meet the goals of Miami. Many international students feel comfortable with the welcoming and friendly environment in the setting of a low student-to-faculty ratio of 18:1. This provides a family-like setting where instructors, staff, and students care about one another, which is often difficult at large public universities.

Associate Director American Culture and English (ACE)
Miami University has one of the strongest undergraduate education programs in the United States. I can definitely notice that by the small class sizes, experienced instructors and professors, and the numerous opportunities for undergraduates that are not common in other schools such as undergraduate research, teaching assistant, and other on-campus jobs that can help your career. Come to Miami and the school will support you in becoming successful!

After graduation, I was employed as a data reporting specialist at the advertising company, Cooper-Smith, in Toledo, Ohio. If you are a person who actively seeks for learning opportunities, I would say Miami University is the one. It is great since professors are full of passions. My most memorable experience at Miami was Fusion, which is an annual cultural show presented by the Asian American Association. It was memorable not only to promote Korean culture but also Asian culture.
