School spirit earrings and sunglasses sold to benefit United Way

The University of Miami is supporting the United Way by selling orange and green “U” earrings in the Office of the Registrar and sunglasses in the UC Breezeway. The earrings cost $5 while the sunglasses cost $10.  The sunglasses will be sold in the Breezeway on Friday

This year’s campaign for United Way began on Sept. 15, with a goal to raise $1.2 million, an increase from last year’s total of $1.12 million.

United Way is a non-profit organization that locates itself in communities and tries to solve problems by attacking them at their sources.

Participants are asked to come back from 6 to 9 p.m. to sign up for a site. Sites will be given to students on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Citations and arrests at football game

At the University of Miami football game against Florida State University last Saturday, 60 notices to appear in court were issued and four people were arrested.

At least 30 of these citations were given to UM students. The exact number of students that made up these 60 citations has not yet been determined.

The State of Florida Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco gives UM the reports on these 60 citations. After the university cross checks the names on these new reports with the university’s list of students, the number could rise.

The closing time for weeknights is 11 p.m., and on Saturdays it closes at 5 p.m.

There are no plans to change the weeknight or Saturday hours.
