Miami University breaks application record

OXFORD, OH (FOX19) -

A record-breaking number of students has applied to Miami University for the fall 2013 semester.

As of Jan. 30, Miami has received 21,027 applications, which surpass the 20,314 applications received in 2012, then the highest in school history.

Applications are expected to grow by the Feb. 1 application deadline for fall 2013 enrollment.

"Our students achieve great success on campus and after graduation as a result of the personal education they receive at Miami. This continues to be widely recognized by not only prospective students and families, but also by employers and professional schools," said Michael Kabbaz, associate vice president for enrollment management.

U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Miami third highest among the nation's top-ranked universities for "efficiently spending their limited resources in order to produce the highest possible educational quality." 

Miami hosts numerous admissions special events on campus throughout the year in addition to daily information sessions and campus tours, providing prospective students and families the opportunity for more personal interaction with current students, faculty and staff.
