Once upon a time, not so long ago, Harris Hall was a dining hall that was home to a chocolate fountain on special occasions.

A brief history of Miami University dining halls

For 70 years, Harris Hall had functioned as the primary dining location for South Quad Miamians. At the time of its closure in the 2016-2017 school year, Harris offered buffet meals, a chocolate fondue fountain for special occasions, and two restaurant options — Panache (est. 2005) and La Mia Cucina (est. 2009).

Holy schnit!

A night with half-priced schnitzel – and fantastic schnitzel at that – creates the perfect atmosphere for anyone looking to enjoy a nice night out with a healthy serving of hearty German food.

Bring back Bell: a love letter

I promise you, Bell Tower Place needs very little overhauling. I think I speak on behalf of the student body when I say that we don’t want this campus’s favored dining hall to be changed or redone — we just want it to be open.

Fridge and Pantry Street Station

Over these two years [of eating in dining halls], I’ve procured many salads and rice bowls I’ve been proud of, but my own mind can only invent so many recipes, so this week I decided to recreate the beloved Fridge & Pantry (F&P) quinoa bowls.

‘The Weekly Veg’: Hoisin mushroom buns

I dragged one of my friends shopping with me for this dish, so it was only fair that she got to try it in the end. One of my roommates, who is notoriously mushroom-phobic, warily joined us, and the three of us had a hoisin mushroom bun party for dinner on Sunday night.

A love letter to Bruno’s Pizza

This empire state of mind in which I reside creates the jury in which I judge my peers. Today, I must crack down on the notion that High Street’s grab ‘n’ go, by-the-slice pizzeria, Bruno’s Pizza, is anything less than great.

A definitive ranking of Oxford’s pizzerias

To help fellow pizza lovers decide where to order from, I’ve decided to rank all of Oxford’s pizzerias. For the sake of length, I’m not including any nationwide chains – only regional chains and local restaurants.


The Weekly Veg, TMS's new food series, will feature delicious and easy vegetarian recipes. This week's edition features spinach and tomato gnocchi.

Introducing ‘The Weekly Veg’: One-pot spinach and tomato gnocchi

When I moved off-campus at the beginning of last semester, I was so excited to finally have my own kitchen. After two years of eating nothing but lukewarm carbs in the dining halls, I could bake treats and cook healthy (and varied) vegetarian meals to my heart’s content, and I promised myself that I would do just that.

Snag: A new delivery service scootering around Oxford

A California-founded electric scooter-powered startup, Snag, is populating the sidewalks and streets of Miami University with red-bag-bearing delivery drivers. With a promise of 10-minute delivery, these drivers rush to get convenience products to students.

A definitive ranking of America’s most popular Valentine’s Day candies

Given that I spent the vast majority of Valentine’s Days as a single woman, I never cared for the holiday much. It’s hard to be enthusiastic about a day where you’re constantly reminded of how lonely you are. Before I went to college, though, I did always have one part of the holiday to look forward to: the candy my mom would buy me.

A cheesy open letter to Dining Services

The contrast between the crunchy breading and the gooey melted cheese in a good mozzarella stick is a truly unrivaled experience. Sure, they’re bad for you (especially when cheese gives you debilitating stomach cramps), but unlike most other foods, they’re worth the calories.
