As Told by Jackie: Dear Club Promoters, We’re over.

An Open Letter to Club Promoters Dear Club Promoters, What’s up bottle rat L*O*S*E*R*S? Have I mentioned to you lately how much I love when you do that star thing? Really attention-grabbing. Anyway, glad you could take time out of your busy day spent mass texting underage girls to read what I am sure will…


As Told by Jackie: Where you dine on campus says a lot

The Rat ­ – You are going to see and be seen. Forget tables at LIV, you know the real prime real estate is a mahogany glider at the Rat after your 11 a.m. class. You are territorial and believe that having no less than your entire pledge class safeguarding your new domain may result in…


As Told by Jackie: The life of a Comm School student

There are many questions I dread in life. Some make the top 10 list: 1) “Did you finish that entire bag of chips already?” 2) “Why have you been staring at me for the past 25 minutes?” 3) “Is that your natural hair color?” The reigning champion for the No. 1 spot, however, goes to…

I, on the other hand, found myself at grips with a near-fatal panic attack. Six…


Grove may have lost its groove

Dearest Grove, I can’t help but notice things have been different between us lately. I have tried to ignore it, putting you before schoolwork and everything else, to focus on us. For a while I told myself that you were just in a funk and we would come back from this, but I now see…


Not so cosmopolitan magazine

Cosmopolitan Magazine needs to be exposed for what it really is: a manual on how to spend your life in Victoria’s Secret Pink sweats, while listening to the same Adele song on repeat for a week. The magazine ruins lives. Celibacy is not an option to these writers, with articles such as “how to discretely…

Campus career center succeeds on national charts

They Tweet, they create YouTube videos, and now students can even check-in to the office on Foursquare when seeking career advice. But this extensive use of social media is just one of the many services offered at the Toppel Career Center, which is topping the charts. Toppel, UM’s on-campus resource that prepares students for professional…

This program, which is offered by the University of Miami Department of Dining Services in collaboration with Chartwells, operates from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m., Thursday through Saturday. “The decision to pilot the…


Different lifestyles call for varying contraceptives

While the primary purpose of birth control is to prevent pregnancy, some teenagers and college students opt to use it to clear up acne, regulate their menstrual cycles or alleviate cramps. UM’s Student Health Center helps women on campus weigh the pros and cons of using birth control and understand the differences among them. Nahida…
