To thrive at UM, students do “need to feel as if we are seen, that we matter, that we count.” But many women at this school do not currently feel seen. You can help change this.
Last week, I attended the 2019 Global Engagement Summit at the United Nations to partake in millennial-led efforts to address the top challenges facing our world. From climate change and women’s rights to world hunger and political populism, there are many great challenges we have yet to overcome as a collective human race.
In less than a week, we the students of the University of Miami will finally get what we’ve been waiting for since Thanksgiving break. We can wake up at midday and not feel guilty about missing class because there will be no classes or assignments (yeah, right). Class attendance for lectures this week will probably be low because spring break is here.
The era of generating stories based upon anonymous sources and “leaked” preliminary reports is upon us.
Portraying some students’ view of Student Government as nothing more than “an event-planning service,” is, at the least, grossly over exaggerated and not warranted with only two days left in this election.
“I am deeply concerned by the way in which Student Government, an organization which, to its core, exists to advocate for and represent the undergraduate student body, has been portrayed.”
UM has a tremendous amount of black history and honestly, we should be ashamed we don’t know more.
