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…


Inebriation and Gluttony: Insanity and P90X…Worth It?

I’ve been getting a lot of feedback from these crazy workouts and decided that the best way to understand them is to do them. I ordered Insanity over the winter break and starting this past Monday, I’ve been tearing all of the muscles in my body repeatedly so that I can’t even discern hunger from…


An Eye on The Hurricane: Kicking off the semester

The start of the semester constantly brings about a new long list of ideas. Some of them make it through, some of them are forgotten and lost. I am new to the editor-in-chief position this semester, and as per tradition, I have a long list of ideas and plans to get done. From our Specs…


Focus on Fitness: Take a running challenge

When most South Beach revelers will finally head home from the clubs, a select group – or should I say a special breed of dedicated athletes – will hit the pavement. Hard. Sunday marks the 11th anniversary of the ING Miami Marathon and Half Marathon. What started as 3,400 runners in 2002 has grown to…


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…

While several Eurozone nations such as Greece are suffering similar financial hardships, the protests and consequential police…


We’re not in Kansas anymore … or are we?

About 3,407 miles away (or, should I say, 5,482 kilometers) from my family in Boston, 4,145 miles from the U, a few time zones ahead, I emerged from the metro to the gleaming sunshine of a Madrid mañana. The Spanish capital city, home to sangria, tapas, y … Starbucks? To my left, Dunkin’ Coffee. To my…


Pizza: good or evil?

As a college student, I would say pizza is a staple food. Pizza places seem to be the only places open when you want it the most, which is the best coincidence when it comes to getting the munchies. When you finally get this pie you waited 15 whole minutes for, you open the box, breathe in…


Adele, Foster the People shine during Grammy performances

I haven’t seen such incredible performances at the Grammys in a long time. Even Taylor Swift stepped up her game. Although Swift and Rihanna’s vocals weren’t the highlights of the night, Adele and Jennifer Hudson let us know there’s still major talent in the music industry. Hudson’s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” during…
