Devin Ankeney

Devin is a sophomore Media & Communication major from Scarsdale, New York. They joined The Miami Student their freshman year and, in addition to being the Business Manager, they are also the Assistant Opinion Editor.

In their tenure, they’ve written across various sections including Food and News, but, most importantly, Opinion. Anything and everything that they could complain about has made it into print. From COVID regulations to pizza rankings, she’s always got a problem with something.

When not overworking herself, you can find Devin wherever a Paul McCartney song is playing.

You can contact her by email ( or on Twitter (@devin_ankeney).

A pesto manifesto

The combination of sausage, pesto and feta cheese not only dances across the mind as an idea, but dances, too, across my taste buds. The perfect ratio creates the perfect dressing for the rotini, vastly exceeding the already high expectations I set as I walked into the dining room. 

Students pass by the entrance to Steinkeller on High Street, which is half-hidden between SoHi and Subway.

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.
