Looking ahead: Defining and redefining Oxford culture

By Britton Perelman, Culture Editor

Culture [kuhl-cher]


1: the quality in a person or society that arises from a concern for what is regarded as excellent in arts, letters, manners, scholarly pursuits, etc.

2: that which is excellent in the arts, manners, etc.

3: a particular form or stage of civilization, as that of a certain nation or period.

4: development or improvement of the mind by education or training.

5: the behaviors and beliefs characteristic or a particular social, ethnic or age group.

No matter how you choose to define it, culture is what defines a place. It's the red bricks, the people who walk on them, what those people do with their time and what they think of the world around them.

Next year, the Culture section of The Miami Student will begin printing twice a week. You can expect everything we normally publish - coverage of theater and music performances, popular entertainment reviews and articles about what's going on Uptown.

But you can also expect to see new kinds of writing - stories about the people that live and work in Oxford, behind-the-scenes glimpses at campus events and organizations and guest articles from Miami students studying abroad all over the world.

Along with an increase in print coverage, we plan to introduce some new features to The Miami Student website, including photo albums and videos of the goings on around Oxford.
