History

Miami University (also referred to as Miami of Ohio or simply Miami) is a public research university located on a 2,138-acre campus in Oxford, Ohio, 35 miles north of Cincinnati. Founded in 1809, although classes were not held until 1824, Miami University is the 10th oldest public university and 32nd oldest higher education institution in the United States. The university also has regional campuses in Hamilton, Middletown and West Chester, as well as the Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg. Miami University is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a research university with a high research activity. It is affiliated to the University System of Ohio.

Miami University is well known for its liberal arts education; it offers more than 120 undergraduate degree programs and over 60 graduate degree programs within its 8 schools and colleges in architecture, business, engineering, humanities and the sciences. In its 2017 edition, U.S. News & World Report ranked the university 79th among national universities and the 30th top public university in the United States. Additionally, Miami University is ranked 2nd best national university (1st among public institutions) for undergraduate teaching. Miami University is one of the original eight Public Ivy schools.

Miami University has a long tradition of Greek life; five social Greek-letter organizations were founded at the university earning Miami the nickname “Mother of Fraternities.” Today, Miami University hosts over 50 fraternity and sorority chapters, and approximately one-third of the undergraduate student population are members of the Greek community. Miami is renowned for its campus beauty, having been called "The most beautiful campus that ever there was" by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Robert Frost.
