10 Photos That Prove Miami University Is "The Most Beautiful Campus That There Ever Was"

After visiting Miami University's campus, renowned poet Robert Frost described it as, "The most beautiful campus that there ever was." If you're a student at Miami University or have ever visited the campus, you know how much truth there is in this statement. As a proud Miami student myself, I am here to corroborate Frost's statement by showing you photos of 10 spots on campus that prove that Miami University is, indeed, "The most beautiful campus that there ever was."

1. Western Campus

Although this area of Western Campus is the most newly developed part of campus, it certainly does not lack the beauty of the rest of campus. As seen in this photo, it is especially beautiful at sunset.

2. The Sundial

Anyone who has been on a campus tour knows the significance of rubbing the turtle heads on the sundial, but there's more to the sundial than mere tradition. It's the perfect spot to stand and admire the beauty of Central Quad.

3. The Seal

The Seal is not only part of one of Miami's greatest superstitions/traditions, but it also gives you a beautiful view of some of Miami's quintessential brick buildings. As shown in this picture, it even turns dreary winter days into a winter wonderland.

4. Shideler Hall

Shideler Hall may be "just another academic building," but it is a perfect representation of the red brick that Miami is famous for. This one building alone is nice enough to look at, but when combined with all of the other red brick buildings on campus, it's no wonder that Robert Frost thought Miami's campus was special.

5. Central Quad

The path to Central Quad is always lined with beautiful flowers. They're enough to brighten any student's day as they make the trek to class.

6. Fall Leaves

Fall is arguably the most beautiful season on Miami's campus. The trees that dot campus fill it with vivid colors. I can't help but think about how lucky I am to live here on days like this.

7. Kumler Chapel

Kumler Chapel is one of the oldest buildings on Western Campus, but there's certainly nothing dated about it. And the best part? It's just as pretty on the inside!

8. Pulley Bell Tower

During springtime at Miami, everything comes to life again. The trees and flowers blossom, and students are, once again, reminded that they are unusually lucky to experience life on such a beautiful campus.

9. Upham Arch

Upham Arch isn't just where you go to kiss your love at midnight, it's also a great spot to go to catch a glimpse of Miami's beauty.

10. MET Quad

Nothing can rain on Miami's parade, not even rain itself! MET Quad still looks just as majestic on this stormy night.


Although there have been many changes to Miami's campus since Robert Frost last set foot on it, one thing that certainly hasn't changed is its beauty. Miami University is definitely the most beautiful campus that there ever was.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.

Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
