Nationally recognized as one of the most outstanding undergraduate institutions, Miami University is a public university located in Oxford, Ohio. With a student body of 16,000, Miami effectively combines a wide range of strong academic programs with the personal attention ordinarily found only at much smaller institutions.
Opportunities for Engagement
Our focus on personal attention is enhanced through the study in selected disciplines by graduate students, who along with undergrads, participate with faculty in significant research and scholarship activities. Miami also offers vibrant residential and community-based programs involving students in life-enhancing activities that build leadership and develop citizenship, character, and lifelong friendships.
Strong Undergraduate Teaching
Along with an impressive number of opportunities to gain practical, hands-on experience, Miami is distinguished by a faculty who love to teach and mentor students. In fact, in a new ranking in America's Best Colleges, Miami has been recognized by U.S.News & World Report for its unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching. We believe that this commitment to teaching is demonstrated in our record of exceptional retention and graduation rates, which remain some of the highest in NCAA Division I schools.
Our graduates represent the more than 180,000 Miami alumni located around the globe, serving as professional and community leaders. To an extent envied by most other universities, our alumni maintain ties with their alma mater and stand ready to assist students and young graduates as they join the "Miami Family."
We encourage you to explore the rest of our website and invite you to visit us here in Oxford. Robert Frost once identified our campus as "the most beautiful college there is." We agree, and we think you will, too!
