This. Is. College. 

Established in 1809, Miami University is located in Oxford, Ohio. Ranked among the top 50 national public universities by U.S. News & World Report, Miami is recognized as one of the nation’s most outstanding undergraduate institutions. With a student body of nearly 19,000, the University 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 study in selected disciplines by graduate students—who, along with undergraduates, participate with faculty in significant research and scholarship activities. Miami also offers vibrant residential, community-based, and international programs, involving students in life-enhancing activities that build leadership and develop citizenship, character, and lifelong friendships.

Strong undergraduate teaching
Along with countless opportunities to gain practical experience, Miami is distinguished by faculty who love to teach and mentor students. In fact, the 2019 U.S. News & World Report rankings recognize Miami among the top five universities in the US in the category of “Strong Commitment to Undergraduate Teaching.” We believe this commitment is also demonstrated in our record of exceptional retention and graduation rates, which remain some of the highest among NCAA Division I schools.

Active alumni
Our graduates represent more than 208,000 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.”
