Ceili Doyle


Céilí Doyle is our managing editor. Her name was inspired by the 1991 Celtic rock band hit, “The Funky Céilí” and is pronounced like “kay-lee” and spelled like ceiling (minus the -ng). Céilí is a senior from the suburbs of Chicago and majors in journalism and political science. She has been writing and working for The Miami Student since the first week of her freshman year and can’t quite believe she’s in charge of it now. In the newsroom she spends most of her time harassing the staff to get their stories in, (“It’s like herding cats,” she says), and losing control of the aux. Last summer Céilí worked on the Metro Desk at The Columbus Dispatch and aspires to break the news for The Washington Post one day. In between hijinks at The Student you can find Céilí running at least five minutes late to class, hanging out with her roommates and trying to learn how to box. 

You can follow her on Twitter @cadoyle_18, where she is trying to cultivate a professional journalism brand.


Miami classes move online; students asked to leave campus

Miami University will conduct classes online through the end of spring semester and is asking students to leave campus promptly.  The news came just hours after the University of Cincinnati Health Center confirmed four cases of novel coronavirus in Butler County on Friday and hours before President Donald Trump officially declared a state of national emergency throughout the U.S.  As of Monday, March 16, there were six confirmed cases in Butler County, none of which are in Oxford.

A seventh-grader’s guide to TikTok

“What are you guys doing?” I called after, laughing as they continuously re-recorded themselves until they were in perfect sync. “You just wouldn’t understand, Ceili,” my brother Liam said. “It’s TikTok.” So, I became determined to understand.





They don’t call ‘em growing pains for nothing

“You need to do some meditation and realize you have to let people care for you,” one of my housemates texted me recently. I dismissed it. See, I thought I had checked off personal growth on my to-do list months ago.
