Established 1826 — Oldest College Newspaper West of the Alleghenies

Hannah Horsington

Hannah is a sophomore double majoring in journalism and international studies. She is a staff writer for The Miami Student, and assistant editor for The Miami Student Magazine, and co-president of Miami Television News. She began writing for TMS her first month on campus and she’s been here ever since! Her favorite people that she’s ever interviewed include Hope Solo, Miss Ohio, and a formerly overweight wiener dog named Gretchen Wieners. This is fitting, as she has a chubby little wiener dog herself that she misses dearly. In the future, Hannah hopes to work in broadcast as a foreign correspondent. Her dream is to host the Today Show one day (especially the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade)! 

Military-affiliated students happily received their cords for graduation, effectively capping their Miami experience.

Military-affiliated students can be students involved in the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) or who may be attending college on a family member’s G.I. Bill.

Good golly, Miss Dolly: What can’t Dolly Parton do?

At 75 years old, Parton’s already accomplished more than most people hope to in their lifetime - but she isn’t done yet. Here are a few other things that Parton’s accomplished that are not only impressive, but have shown her love for making the world a better place:

Tours for prospective students are still affected by COVID-19 restrictions. Groups are limited to 10 people.

Tour guides adjust to COVID restrictions

Payne started working as a tour guide this year, and while she’s picked up on things quickly, she knows that it’s not quite the same as training before the COVID-19 pandemic. For tour guides who worked before the pandemic, the adjustment has been a little more difficult. 

Despite many students reporting seeing large parties on Green Beer Day, just one mass gathering citation was issued.

Green Beer Day had relatively low citations, follows trend of recent years

This year, just more than 30 total citations — including one for mass gatherings and zero for mask violations — were issued by the Oxford Police Department (OPD) over the course of Green Beer Day (GBD) events. Despite this low number of citations in comparison to years past, students reported both seeing and attending large gatherings with more than 60 people in attendance.
