The only one of those schools i know anything about it Miami U. My grandparents live their and my uncle-in-law is the girls swim coach. Ive been to the city (Oxford) 5-6 times in the last several years. Besides the college there is really nothing there. So if you like small towns then i would move towards the top of the list. Good Luck

I attended Providence some 20 something years ago.
After 12 years of Catholic school I finally got fed up after a year at PC.
Back then Lou Lamerillo was the AD, Billy Donovan was the point guard and Chris Terreri was in goal.

The campus itself is really nice. All of the buildings are kepted up well. They got a new recreation center a couple of years ago thats really sweet too. I have never been in one of the dorms so i really cant help you there but from the outside they look pretty good.

I believe its around 20-30 to Cincinnatti. Dayton is also about the same distance. The only problem is that there arent any highways. 75% of the trip to the city is on a two lane road.

I think there pretty good at basketball im not sure about baseball and i know they have a hockey team. I know the girls swim team has won a couple of national titles in the last five years (if you really care).
