Whoever said fetch was never going to happen clearly did not meet Gretchen Wieners, the wiener dog.

She’s not a regular dog, she’s a cool dog

Gretchen, a dachshund who turns 12 years old in March, is also referred to as Gretchen Wieners, after the iconic “Mean Girls” character. When she first came to live with Abbott, she weighed approximately 30 pounds, definitely overweight for a weiner dog.

New flags added in Armstrong to better reflect student body

Armstrong Student Center puts up flags to honor the home countries of students enrolled at the university. But the flags don't necessarily represent the nationalities and heritages of every student.   The very first time that Class of 2020 Miami graduate Andrew Devedjian stepped foot into Armstrong Student Center during a 2016 campus visit, he immediately searched for the Armenian flag hanging among others on the wall. He didn’t see it. Now he's looking to change that.
