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.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
