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.

To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!

It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
