Established 1826 — Oldest College Newspaper West of the Alleghenies

Jake Ruffer


Jake joined TMS before he ever got to Miami as a student. He wrote his first article last September from his bedroom in Portland, Oregon. 

Arriving on campus, he plunged into newspaper photography to go with the writing since he never put down his camera anyways. Instagram @ruff.photo is always hungry for content.

Along with being the Asst. Photo Editor, Jake is also an Asst. Magazine Editor for TMSM. 

When he’s not watching the Trailblazers or their highlights, he’s at Kofenya (not studying, just begging for more caramel latte from the barista who cut him off ten minutes ago) or throwing a frisbee around at Cook. 

And to answer your burning question, he came 2,000 miles to study here because his parents are a Miami Merger.
