Last year, over 8,700 students attended special events and dinners at Miami University. Local business partners were able to gain access to the student population through samples, giveaways, coupons, and prizes. Our most successful event, Ice Cream Extravaganza, saw an 101% increase in attendance over the average dinner. This event featured local favorites like Madisono's gelato and Young's Jersey Dairy.

For the 2016–2017 school year we have expanded to more than a dozen themed events, each offering unique partnership opportunities. In exchange for the efforts and creativity of our local business partners, we provide a high-reach marketing campaign surrounding each event. This marketing includes digital ads on over 70 screens across campus, social media blasts, and multiple printed pieces. Expose your business to the largest concentration of the millennial audience in our area by partnering with Miami University Dining.
