I came to Miami University because I hoped to find an environment with the benefits of a large university with the personal attention of a small school. I wanted to find a place where I could pursue my academic interests but not get lost in the crowd. I don't think I could have made a better choice!

As well as finding what you want to do, college allows you to discover what you don't want to do with the rest of your life … you don't need to come to college knowing what you'll be doing when you leave.

When it came time to choose a college, I knew that I belonged at Miami, and with every semester that passes I become more and more grateful that I did … Miami offers numerous opportunities to learn outside of the classroom: in different cities, states, even countries, which provide students with unique, prestigious, hands-on opportunities.

I cannot attribute my success at Miami entirely to myself … Meeting and regularly conversing with my academic counselor and many of my literature professors provided me with much needed guidance, structure and confidence. Through them I found both mentors and close friends and because of them, I found my home to be Miami.
