From Miami University:
Miami University enjoys a unique relationship with the Miami Tribe from which the school derives its name.
Miami University is expanding its commitment to preserving Miami tribal culture. The Myaamia Project (pronounced: me-AHM-me-uh) is now a full center.
Director Daryl Baldwin says becoming a center further enhances the project's language and culture preservation goals.
Miami University isn't losing its appeal. The university says as of Wednesday 21,027 potential students have applied for the fall 2013 semester. That surpasses 20,314 applications received in 2012.
Miami says it expects this year's number to grow even higher by the February first enrollment deadline.
The Miami University Marching Band was in the first wave of invitees to participate in the 57th Inaugural Parade on Monday, Jan. 21 in Washington, D.C.
So far, the Miami University band is the only participant from Ohio invited by the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
Miami University is naming David Sayler as its new Director of Athletics. Sayler comes from the University of South Dakota where he was in charge of intercollegiate athletics for two-and-a-half years.
Sayler replaces Brad Bates who left in October to take the athletic director position at Boston College.
