Briah Lumpkins


Briah Lumpkins is a sophomore from Toledo, Ohio. She is currently a double major studying Journalism and Sociology. On campus, she serves as one of two assistant news editors at The Miami Student, CAS Communications Intern for the College of Arts and Sciences and a member of Miami Activities and Programming (MAP). 

Briah has written for the news, culture and opinion sections of the newspaper and has a special affinity for writing profiles about students on campus. 

Briah loves listening to music but has a certain love for R&B. Some of her favorite artists are Anderson .Paak, D'Angelo, Justin Timberlake, and Tom Misch. She also has a secret passion for all things Bachelor Nation and has high hopes of one day marrying Peter Kraus from season 13 of The Bachelorette. It is also important to note that Briah also has a mild to severe sweet tea addiction, it’s no biggie though. She’s fine, we promise.

Miami at home: Kroger in the midst of the apocalypse

  The automatic opening doors at Kroger’s entrance offered an inviting feeling of warmth compared to the cold outside. My brother, Kalen, and I dodged shopping carts making their way out the building.  There were too many people here. Definitely too many for a Monday afternoon. Every person who passed us had a cart that was entirely too full. Some had multiple family members pushing a cart throughout the store.  Shelves that once held food were bare. The toilet paper, I found out from a conversation between two employees, had been “out for days,” but they were hoping for a new shipment soon.
