Campus Visit Notes for Miami University-Oxford

Visit Description:

We loved Miami! It is gorgeous along with seeming to have solid academics. I am not so sure about it being particularly diverse which is a little bit of a turn off for my daughter. But stil a great school. Unfortunately, we visited Ohio State the very next day and she fell in love with OSU. She will still be applying to Miami though! They also give nice merit scholarships for a state school - very impressive.
