Miccosukees help fund Presidential debate

The University of Miami has received a gift of more than $1 million from the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida to help defray the costs associated with hosting the 2004 Presidential Debate. The Commission on Presidential Debates recently notified the University of Miami that its Convocation Center on the Coral Gables campus will be the site of the first Presidential debate. The debate will be the first-ever held in the state of Florida.
The University of Miami was recently selected from among 14 formal proposals submitted to the Commission last spring. It is the only university selected from along the eastern seaboard.
The University plans to create seminars, lectures and other programs to support the debate and to involve students, faculty, staff and the community in the experience.
The debate will be broadcast live at 9 p.m. on Sept. 30, 2004.

‘Ibis’ wants writers

The Ibis yearbook is in need of writers. The theme of the book this year is school spirit, and they want to include as many voices and reactions as possible in the book. The Ibis covers anything and everything that takes place on campus and even things off campus like summer blockbusters or the World Series. Everyone is encouraged to submit their stories, even if they think it’s not something that would be included. The stories are usually 250 to 300 words, but it is also okay if the articles are more. There are plenty of assignments that need to be covered, and stories printed in the yearbook are considered published work, so it looks great on resumes! The Ibis yearbook wins awards every year – why not be a part of it? All quotes and stories can be sent to ibiswriter@hotmail.com or dropped off at the yearbook office in the UC 229. Include your name, year and an e-mail address.
