Tuesday night's event, entitled "Sex on the Beach," changed that. The discussion was organized by students as part of the University of Miami's "A Week for Life," a week-long series of events to spread awareness about HIV/AIDS and promote sexual health. The discussion took place in the University Center's I-Lounge, which was filled with decorations, food and even virgin Daiquiris. Each guest donned a lei necklace and sat on one of the many sofas that were arranged in the shape of a circle.
President Barack Obama's first 71 days in office is surely a hot topic for all politically-minded college students, but few relish a good political argument as much as debaters. On Thursday night in front of a crowd of about 20 people, the UM Debate team hosted three Irish debaters in a dynamic debate about Obama's first three months in office.
