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 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. Jake is now the Photography Editor for the Student.

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 shooting hoops at the rec. 

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