Anti-abortion students’ beliefs are under attack at Miami

Political tensions are high on college campuses around the country, potentially more so than they’ve ever been. With such alienating topics, from abortions to racial tensions to our president himself, it would be almost laughable for us as a community to try and keep the peace; people must vocalize their opinions. It’s the only way to bring about change.

Supreme Court should legalize sports gambling

The legacy of departed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is one that will be hard to discern. He went from the hard-charging face of the Republican Party to a governor allegedly closing bridges to spite political rivals, and chastising constituents on radio stations.

DZ girls’ punishment indicates double standard

Two weeks ago, two female Miami students were removed from the Delta Zeta (DZ) sorority after a video leaked online in which they were singing along to the song “Freaky Friday” by Lil’ Dicky.

From BAM: Not all demands met

On Friday, April 20, 2018, BAM 2.0 representatives met with members of the administration. Present at the meeting was Dean Mike Curme, Vice-President for Student Affairs Jayne Brownell, Dr. Kelley Kimple, Director of the Office of Diversity Affairs, and President Greg Crawford. We were pleased to hear positive updates on several of our demands, including the creation, and now implementation, of the bias reporting incident button, possible layouts for a new space to serve as a larger Office of Diversity Affairs and a new website in the works that will display all administrative updates related to the list of demands and will continue to serve as a source of updates for the Miami community in the future. However, one demand in particular has not been met appropriately in a timely fashion by administration. Even after its inadequate response was brought up in this meeting, we feel as though administration is not hearing us loud enough.
