Having some of the best coaches in the game might have something to do with that.

Head to Yager Stadium, and root on your RedHawks in style with this super-soft raglan, perfect for the fickle weather of fall. Our Miami, here’s to thee!
Looking to ace your classes at Miami? We’ve got a tried-and-true, two-prong plan: give the university’s famed turtles a nice, gentle rub on their heads and stay clear of the seal.
According to Miami tradition, the copper turtles of the Tri Delt Sundial in Central Quad dole out A’s on upcoming exams provided you give their noggins a nice rub on your way to tackling the ultimate academic stressor. On the flip side, legend has it, walk on Miami’s seal in The Hub, and the cursed F awaits you. You can leave it to university lore, but, yeah, an hour or two of studying won’t hurt. Love and honor.
Days after President Thomas Jefferson ratified the February 19, 1803 act of Congress that established Ohio as the United States’ 17th state, a three-person search committee was tasked with finding a township fit for a college between the Great Miami and Little Miami Rivers.
In 1788, John Cleves Symmes had been in the process of purchasing the land from Congress, which demanded that of the 300,000+ acres, more than 20,000 be set aside for an academy. Nearly six years to the date of the committee’s initial surveying trip, “An Act to Establish the Miami University” was passed, and Miami University was established in Oxford, Ohio. Love and honor to Old Miami.
Miami University’s motto, “Prodesse Quam Conspici,” translates in English as, “To accomplish rather than to be conspicuous.” And with alumni that have led the free world, won Pulitzer Prizes, dominated the NFL and headed numerous Fortune 500 companies, the motto isn’t just some out-of-date saying, but the Miami way for alumni and faculty alike.
The tenth-oldest public university in the United States, Miami has been labeled one of the “Public Ivies,” a publicly funded university that provides an education as rigorous and rewarding as that of any Ivy League school. Look the accomplished part in this super-soft tee. Pay homage.
