The Indie Scene in Miami

Though people complain the music scene in Miami is all about Gucci flip-flops, Italian hair gel and the latest from Oakie and cohorts, the small indie electronic music scene is thriving in Miami. Miami Bass lives on with the help of dedicated djs and the venues that support the scene, though ensconced within the urban…

Chez Chartwells

Cafeteria food. No matter where we eat it or how we eat it, it’s always the same: tasteless, boring and, in a nutshell, nasty. So it follows that Chartwells, however fancy the name, stays true to tradition. In the brochures we receive in our orientation packages, we are told about the many places we can…

Don’t keep off the grass

Keep Off the Grass? When I told one my former political science professors that I was considering coming to the University of Miami, he said, “Isn’t that campus just like a country club?” I didn’t know. I had never seen it. Now that I’ve been here for all of one semester, I can see what…

Cellular Divide

Professors at the University of Miami have no sympathy for student emergencies. While they may be great researchers, and a selected few great teachers, they fail to understand that when a student’s cell phone rings, it’s always an emergency. Today’s college student lives under a lot of pressure. The student of the 21st century lives…

An examination of desktop scrawl

If you wish to feel the pulse of college students, then read the scrawl on the study stations situated near the walls and windows of the Richter library. These eclectic snapshots of mystical rumination, adolescent angst, and disturbing perversity mostly represent neither graffiti nor art. Rather, I contend that library squiggle chronicles the recurring themes…

Parking Blunders

Just when I think the bigwigs of the University of Miami can’t sink any lower than they have, they strike again and pull another boneheaded move. As I walked back to my room in Eaton after a refreshing Christmas break, what to my wondering eyes should appear? A brand new patio in front of the…

What if NFL fails?

So you win the national championship. Is that the end of the line? It is a wonderful accomplishment especially for a team, a school, which has been through so much in the last five years. But how can some say that it is the end of the road? Juniors’ Jeremy Shockey, Clinton Portis, and Phillip…

Congratulations from a proud ‘Cane

I was nervous on Jan. 3. I wasn’t one of the many doubters; I knew if our football team came to play they could beat anyone. I just wasn’t sure if they could handle the pressure of a big game like this after a relatively easy season. Imagine my relief when the game began to…

Burglar’s paradise: UM housing a haven for thieves

I knew something was wrong when I walked in and saw my roommates sitting in the living room wearing grim expressions on their faces. Check your room, they told me. And as I walked in, it hit me. Several of my things had been thrown on the floor. Some of the dresser drawers were open,…

Intelligent people making stupid decisions

The Question of Common Sense. When I first came to UM, I hard a hard time getting adjusted to the life and ways of the United States. Life here is extremely different from that of the island on which I grew up; I had a serious case of culture shock, and there are some things…

Letter to the Editor

If someone had told me that the University’s purpose was not to teach me skills which would help me get a job, but – as the dean of the School of Communications put it – to “develop for yourself the richest possible life …” (whatever that means), I would have considered receiving my degree somewhere…
