A family affair: Inside Oxford’s local businesses

By Angela Hatcher, For The Miami Student Phan Shin Seven thousand, six hundred and forty-two miles. That’s how far Juan Lin, or Yvonne as she prefers to go by, is from her hometown in China. “Seafood,” she said “That’s what Fujian reminds me of.” As she stands behind the take out counter at Phan Shin, scribbling a customer’s order on her notepad, she has nothing but a big smile on her face.

By Angela Hatcher, For The Miami Student Monday morning, Mona-Mae Juwillie was sitting on her bed scrolling through Yik Yak. She was horrified by what she saw. “If there was a movement called white lives matter it would be shot down immediately even though it would be the same damn thing as black lives matter.

Large classes increase as Miami student body grows, student engagement impacted

Miami University first-year Darshini Parthasarathy shuffles around in her seat as she prepares for her professor’s anthropology lecture. Her laptop is open, Google Docs at the ready. She is eager for the lesson to begin. Compare her demeanor to the 291 other students who sit around her in a wild disarray, Twittering and Tindering, and you would think that Parthasarathy is a diamond in the rough. “I’m really focused compared to the majority,” she says, chuckling. “But I’m here to learn.” Parthasarathy is among the many...
