Great News Activities are a central part of the university, and students are always creating new and exciting opportunities to sample

The newest extracurricular activity that ‘Canes can look out for is Outdoor Adventures, a campus recreation center. The recreation center opened in Lakeside Village in August and became an instant hit because of their rock climbing wall. They also started a gear rental program to provide students with the equipment they need to explore south Florida’s nature with paddle boards, scuba equipment and camping gear. ‘Canes now have a one shop destination for all the gear they need to explore the great local environment which includes nearby access to Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys.

Study Break

The pursuit of academic success through study and research has always remained the central focus of University of Miami students

Need a place to study? No worries! The University of Miami has eight different libraries to choose from. Students have access to five libraries on the main Coral Gables campus, one at the Rosentiel Marine and Atmospheric Science campus, and two at the Miller School of Medicine campus. This year all of the UM Libraries’ capacity has been reduced by 75% to align with campus social distancing guidelines and developed a system where students can book a library seat to ensure a safe and secure study spot. If students want an even more secluded study area they can book a seat at the Toppel Center or even a classroom at the Dooly Memorial Building, Solomon G. Merrick Building, Allen Hall, Whitten Learning Center or an outdoor tent located on the University Foote Green.

Lifestyles Life in Miami is one of the most exciting parts of being a new ‘Cane and getting to experience your new South Florida home Campus life is filled with new daily events that include free music festivals and daily informational tables you never get tired of as a University of Miami student. Other aspects of campus life include an endless number of dining options. This year two new dining options arrived at the University of Miami’s Coral Gables Campus in the new Lakeside Village student housing complex. This included Smoothie King, a national franchise known for their smoothies, and Daybreak, an all-day breakfast dining.

SUMMER EVENTS 11


occupied for

THE SUMMER

Like so much else, summer internships have been upended by the pandemic. Here’s how our fellow ‘canes managed to make the best out of it, even through a changing world

UM students prepared for their summer in various ways: securing internships, enrolling in summer classes, or booking tickets for far-away destinations. One thing is certain, no one was preparing to spend their summers quarantining at home. Despite COVID-19 bringing in drastic changes, students ensured they could continue to have a meaningful summer. Many students’ internships went virtual, and they were able to participate from the comfort of their homes. Others who may have lost internships found other opportunities, or signed up for virtual classes instead of in-person. “Spending the summer as a GEA, I felt like I still got to impact my community in a positive way. Even though the role was different than how I imagined, I felt really good about helping students,” says Anjou Sharma, who spent the summer oncampus to oversee summer residents, who could not go home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many students were left without options, but our faculty quickly stepped in and responded to the emerging need. Toppel Career Center hosted webinar opportunities for students to network, sustained peer advising so students could seek advice, and rolled out free inaugural programs to help keep students busy and facilitate job hunts. This includes the Summer Skills Advantage Series, a self-directed training program for students to engage themselves 119 participants chose a track among coding, digital marketing, graphic design, non-profit & grant writing, and project management. They also provided resources for graduates, such as the Job Search Power Hour and SummerSkill up Webinar Series. Overall, students managed to see the brighter side and gain valuable experience, even though it may not have been what was expected, or what had occured in previous years.

MOVING INTO

a new adventure

Whether it was your first time on campus or the blissful return to your tropical home-away-from-home, fall 2020’s move-in was one to be remembered Every new Hurricane has had uncertainty and excitement when moving into such a beautifully new place as the Gables. 2020 freshmen not only are coming onto an unknown campus, but also a rapidly changing one. Despite this, they courageously moved into the unknown ready to accept the challenge and honor of being a UM student. When asked about her experience, Freshman Cara Kelly says, “I would sum up the experience by saying it was scary at first to be alone during a pandemic but college is also an exciting time where you have a lot more freedom.” This fall’s move-in was unique for everyone but when faced with obstacles, the Ibis nature of our

students found safe and wonderful ways to overcome them. This includes navigating the ongoing construction and manicured new landscaping of Lakeside Village.

START

Orientation for incoming fall 2020 students was held both in person and virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic

In the midst of an everchanging global pandemic, the University of Miami decided to resume instruction of on-campus classes for the Fall 2020 semester. ‘Cane Kickoff was held both virtually and in person due to COVID-19. When on campus, social distancing stickers, blocked off seating, COVID-19 safety information signs, and hand sanitizer stations can be seen around every corner. Orientation staff member Justine Mathurin, junior, believes that everyone tried to make virtual orientation as normal as possible for the freshmen. She said, “OSCI and other orgs have been making virtual events in attempt to bring many students much closer together.” Most of orientation took place on Zoom, where students were put into groups and guided by upper-classmen. Students were required to attend daily meetings with their virtual orientation groups and different student bonding events such as Pancakes with Pat, and Donuts with Duerk, as well as 'Canes Take Flight. Justine believes that orientation was dificult to host this year. “You can only interact so much on Zoom, and some people are not comfortable talking or turning on their cameras. It makes it more dificult to meet the freshmen." Although not traditional, orientation succeeded in its yearly goal of making new students feel like they were ready begin their adventures on and off campus.

PROGRESS

The university is continuously renovating, updating and constructing new buildings in order to keep the ‘U’ up-to-date, trendy, and safe for all students We are living in the U’s multi-year plan to modernize campus living. As we pardon the progress that’s happening around us we get to reap the rewards of an active and increasingly beautiful campus. This year we saw Phase 1 of three completed with the finalization of Lakeside Village. This 12-acre development epitomizes South Florida living with a price tag of $153M. From the sand court to the swaying palms, the University and architect, Arquitectonic, activated the space surrounding Lake Osceola to a luxurious extent.

The progress doesn’t stop at Campus Housing. The construction of the new Student Services Building has brought together the Camner Center for Academic Resources and the Counseling Center. But whether it is regarding your CaneCard, your classes, your financial aid, or your mental health, this building is a one-stop-shop. From new dorms to new student centers to even a new greenhouse, Miami’s southern suns and sky blue waters are definitely smiling upon this under-construction alma mater.

LAKESIDE

New on-campus housing brings plenty of opportunities for student and success and living This year, Lakeside Village finally opened its doors to welcome home 1,115 upperclassmen. This housing complex is the first part of the university’s plan to provide better on-campus living spaces for all students. Construction of Lakeside Village began February of 2018 and was completed this August. Junior Dylan Wacksman, the Community Assistant for the 4th floor of Lobby D, is enjoying his time in Lakeside. Some of his favorite parts of Lakeside are his kitchen and the seating area overlooking Lake Osceola. “I love trying to cook new recipes, while also trying to recreate

some of my favorite dishes,” said Wacksman. As a CA, he says it is more difficult to interact with residents than it was in Hecht, as students have little need to leave their apartments to go and get anything. “I’m trying my hardest to make myself available and visible to all my residents,” Wacksman said. This new style of on-campus living provides students with a healthy medium of the support of dorm life and the responsibility of living in an apartment alone and taking care of themselves like adults.

VIEWS

On-campus buildings allow students to become more involved in the student life that occurs on a multiple use complex Upon re-opening for the Fall semester, students were welcomed to the newest addition to campus, Lakeside Village. This new development on campus houses 1,115 students across its 12 acres of 25 interconnected buildings. Building Lakeside Village is one of the first steps in the University’s plan for more modernized student housing facilities. Lakeside Village is more than dorms for

residential students. Inside of the complex are retail spaces, offices, a grand courtyard, study spots, terraces, recreational spaces and even teaching classrooms. Students and staff are sure to enjoy Lakeside Village and the amenities that it brings to the Coral Gables campus. In the Spring of 2021, restaurants Smoothie King and Daybreak will open, adding allure to the newly constructed 12-acre complex.

The Lowe Art Museum on the Coral Gables campus brings the Arts Virtually to ‘U’ during the COVID-19 pandemic

Closed doors at the Lowe Art Museum did not mean closed for business! For health measures,’Canes were not permitted to physically visit, but the Lowe remained active. Facing a socially-distanced campus, the Lowe, along with the HR Workplace of Equity and Inclusion, hosted virtual conversations called “Connect and Create,” to use the Lowe collection in initiating dialogue about diversity and communication. In a similar way, “The Art of Mindfulness” was a virtual session where participants were invited to virtually focus attention in different ways on a work of art from the Lowe’s collection, cultivating awareness in an increasingly new campus. On top of these conversations, the Lowe continued in hosting lectures and exhibitions. October provided Hurricanes a virtual lecture given by Sergio Cernuda about the work of Carlos Alfonzo, a Cuban-American painter known for his neoimpressionistic style. And the exhibitions Carlos Estévez: Cities of the Mindand History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrencewere available remotely for exploration and inspiration to all. The Lowe website also offered an online tour of the sculptural program around campus for those of us who were always a little confused by our abstract Gables adornments or for those of us who were away and wanted a peek into the 'U'. From the far from academic curated Zoom backgrounds of the Lowe collection to the erudite conversations around prints, paintings, and cultural history we can always rely on the Lowe.

School Spirit

ON OUR CAMPUS Despite these trying times, our sporting spirit is just as strong while still making sure tailgating is safe

On Saturday, September 26, the Miami Hurricanes celebrated a sweeping 42 point lead victory over the Florida State Seminoles. Students eagerly gathered in the IM fields to attend a UM vs FSU Watch Party hosted by Category 5 and Student Activities and Student Organizations (SASO), where they practiced safe social distancing. “The football season may look a little different, however, the experience was still the same. Tailgating was not an option considering the pandemic, but it was an amazing experience and the pandemic did not change that,” said Noor Gheith. Hurricane pride stood strong as the watch party was moved to the Wellness Center due to bad weather, a great testament to the ‘Cane spirit. “Our student athletes have modeled how daily sacrifices will lead to long-term rewards, and we can also take an important lesson from Saturday night’s game: dominate early and never let up,” said President Frenk, reminding students of the importance of their health and the wellbeing of the community.

Eating Through

Campus

Life as seen through the fundamental campus food experiences takes students through many different types of cuisines There are some things that are simply iconic to the campus food experience and to graduate without them would be a great regret. The Rathskeller’s NoYes Fries, Rat Royale Burger and 305 Salad are as crucial to the UM experience as a picture with Sebastian. Chips and queso from Lime are as essential to ending a day at UC pool, as an espresso at Archivist Cafe is to starting one at Richter Library. The hidden gem, Pura Vida, at Hillel serves up nutrient-rich foods like their PB Lover acai bowl for the healthy Ibis. The Hurricane Food Court may be overwhelming, but a cafecito at Vicky’s Cafe or a 'U' Roll and Bubble Tea at SushiMaki ground the UM food scene. Take time to run through the buffet at Panda Express or grab yucca fries at PolloTropical. Eat french toast sticks in the dining halls, make a sandwich at MahoneyPearson’s Baker’s Crust and order a grilled cheese at HechtStanford’s Grill. There are so many food experiences to be had on the Gables campus. Even during COVID, students found ways to fill their time and their tummies courtesy of on campus dining.

BUCKET HATS

latest fall

TRENDS It has been an unstylish year to say the least, but where the year misses out, the trends continue on. While this trend disappeared soon after the 1980’s, bucket hats have made a return during the millennial generation. These hats are a good accessory to have while at the beach, but also on a day out while looking out to the city. So, if you haven’t already, hop on the bucket hat trend.

SPOOKTACULAR @itzvalen.

MIKE IN THE HAT Mikey Mok rocking that bucket hat

While Halloween was still far away when this trend originated, that didn’t stop students from doing the ghost photoshoot trend. This viral trend originated from TikTok on September 9th. In order to do this trend, all you need to do is grab a white sheet, put it over yourself, draw some eyes, and take pictures.

While the presidential election is every 4 years, this will be most college students’ first time voting in a major election. Since the 2020 election holds a lot of weight, UM students are excited to make their voices heard.

This trend started at the beginning of the year due to the global pandemic and continues to remain a trend today. While everyone is required to wear a mask on campus and in public at all times, masks can still be trendy with their unique designs.

All the way from the 1960s, tie-dye has made another big splash in 2020. Many students at the U have been rocking their tie-dye gear from tie-dye masks to tie-dye swimsuits. Some popular tie-dye designs this year have been the ice dye, crumple, and spiral.

Wellness at

THE ‘U’ The importance of a well-balanced life is paramount, especially during the pandemic, and the perfect place for help is the Herbert Wellness Center Since orientation, all students at the ‘U’ have been told that their physical and mental wellness are the most important things. Every year, wellness is an important topic to discuss as well as participate in, but especially in 2020 due to the ongoing global pandemic and quarantine regulations. Not only did quarantine have an impact on our physical wellness due to the inability to go to gyms or compete in tournaments, but it also had an impact on our mental wellness because we were unable to hang out with our friends in person or go to different events. However, when students went to campus for the fall semester, both their physical and mental wellness improved due to the reopening of the Patti and Allan Herbert Wellness Center and the ability to see their friends from 6 feet apart. Even though 2020 has placed a toll on our physical and mental wellness, we must remember to take care of ourselves as our wellness is an important thing.

PATIO JAMS Students at UM enjoy the Patio Jams that go on at The Rock every week. They enjoy the variety of music while enjoying campus views and sights

Every Thursday, students at UM know that from 12:15 to 1:30 they’re in for a treat; talented ‘Canes showcase their musical abilities by performing at Thursdays Patio Jams. These sessions, hosted by Hurricane Productions, attract a large number of students looking for some live entertainment during the day. Patio Jam sessions are very unique, as different bands and singers perform from week to week. This allows for some variety of talent and attracts a wide audience. Performers such as Jeyhan and Chad Nelson have made an appearance at the Lakeside Patio Stage, as well bands like Pump Action and Uniform crew. Due to COVID-19, HP wanted to accommodate all students. During the fall of 2020, select Jam sessions will be held virtually for those who are off campus or fully remote, but who still want to enjoy the live music. Regardless of whether one watches the live or virtual performances, students at the university can enjoy the free entertainment while eating lunch, talking with friends, or studying on and off campus.

This year, COVID was not able to change the ’Canes spirit. The week included in-person and virtual events included: outdoor movie screening at the Lakeside Village volleyball courts, Donuts with Duerk, Pancakes with Pat, and ended with a football watch party on the IM Fields. Students were given the opportunity to participate in activities at the UC Patio, which included writing letters to custodial staff and painting the ‘U’ logo.

Halloween night on campus was filled with events that students could safely partake in, while closely following the university’s COVID-19 social distancing guidelines During the few days leading up to Halloween night, organizations hosted multiple events on campus in order to keep students safe and make sure they had an enjoyable night. The Cane Stage Theatre Company, the university’s very own acting group, hosted very special performances on October 30th and October 31st, Halloween night. They performed ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ on the Lakeside Patio Stage for all interested ‘Canes.

VOTE South Florida Several successful activites were hosted by the university and associated organizations to help promote student civic engagement in federal and state elections

We mobilized students to make their voices heard in the 2020 election. Through the Butler Center, the Canes Vote Network organized events during election season to get students excited about voting. Throughout the race, they hosted watch parties on the Foote Green, where socially distanced and masked groups of students watched both the presidential and vice presidential debates. There were also social media posts and posters around campus providing information on voter registration and prompting students to virtually pledge to vote, part of an online competition between colleges to have the most voters. One election day, Canes Vote tabled at the Lakeside Patio, handing out free merch in one last push to remind students to go out and vote. That night, one last watch party was hosted to watch the polls as votes being counted across the country.

Political Intolerance Bubbles up at the ‘U’ About a week prior to the election, the University of Miami College Republican hung a Trump/Pence banner outside the bookstore. Later that day the banner got painted over, prompting President Frenk to send out an email reminding students that our campus is an inclusive space and that acts of disrespect will not be tolerated. Later that week, UMCRs hung another banner outside of the Whitten University Center and lined the sidewalks with small signs. The University of Miami College Democrats also hung a Biden/Harris banner outside the Whitten University Center and lined the opposite side of the sidewalk with signs encouraging students to vote and promoting diversity. Both of these campus organizations held tabling events prior to the election to hand out merchand provide information on their respective parties. By Jessica Schultz

our voices

HEARD Students on campus are encouraged to vote in the Election by many of the organizations at the university

With all of the events that happened in 2020, it was easy to forget that this year also called for a presidential election. Students were able to attend on-campus watch parties, six-feet apart on the grass, to watch the presidential debates and receive free goodies such as t-shirts, bracelets, and towels. Get Out the Vote (GOTV), a student-led initiative, with support from the University of Miami’s administration, that is dedicated to promoting nonpartisan civic participation and voter mobilization across campus, became a

great resource for many students on spreading information about how and where they could vote. UM made sure to let students know that their votes mattered, even providing Early Voting Shuttles from Stanford Circle to the Coral Gables Library, every thirty minutes. Get Out The Vote even created an eboard where members were able to help students by answering any questions about voter registrations, vote-by-mail ballots, or information about the election itself.

Cooking Up a Family

Thanksgiving Autumn Break gives students a week of rest before finals to catch on rest and relax

As everything else changed due to the pandemic, fall break was no different introducing new traditions for everyone including smaller portions and hand sanitizer all around the house, especially at the dinner table. The fall semester had a revised academic calendar that enabled students to travel home for the Thanksgiving holiday and not return to campus again until the spring semester in efforts to limit the frequency of travel and potential for virus transmission to spread. This was done by moving all final exams and project presentations online. Other students opted out of going home all together in an effort to keep their families safe. These students turned to Zoom to celebrate with their family members from all over the world in the safety of their own homes. Sophomore Anders Swanson commented on the time disphoria of the pandemic, “somebody let me know if this is a [Thanksgiving or] Christmas photo.” It wasn’t the traditional form of celebration, but the internet was a new way for people to spend time with their loved ones while maintaining social distance.

Students were able to appreciate an extended winter recess, back on campus frontline health care workers received the first does of the COVID-19 vaccine administered on the medical campus. “Crews from the department of emergency management, facilities, safety and compliance, concert pharmacology, nursing, and information technology all worked together with the help of construction crews to prepare the tent and to ensure that the entire vaccination process was safe and efficient,” said the official statment. It was also during this time that the ‘U’s very own Miami Herbert Business school announced it would be starting a new scholarship called the COVID Career Advancement Relief Plan. This scholarship will award high-achieving students interested in pursuing 10-month specialized master’s programs in four areas – finance, accounting, business analytics and international business.

Celebrating diversity during the year, as students embrace their differing cultural backgrounds As most people know, February is Black History Month. UM made it a point to make sure that this month was filled with events. The United Black Students, a student-led organization, was the head organizers to present Black Awareness Month. They made sure to fill the month with comprehensive events that were both in-person and virtual. This year, BAM’s special events commemorated the historical achievements and contributions of the African American Diaspora. They also chose to have the theme Black HERStory Month in order to highlight the impact of Black female figures. The UBS also held Social Justice Week where they createdsociallyconscious events centered around bringing awareness of the issues impacting our campus and surrounding communities.The week began on February15, with an art exhibition titled Invisible by Nadine Hall. After a childhood filled with trauma, the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (EMCVPA) graduate and current University of Miami Grad student uses her talent as a coping mechanism to turn pain into something beauty. “My art is my instrument, it allows me to speak without fear,” stated Hall when interviewed about her piece.

fresh fun on WEDNESDAYS Market Wednesdays allow students to try various healthy, fresh and organic food options Most students on campus look forward to Wednesdays for one special reason: the Farmers Market. These Farmers Market Wednesdays bring the UM community together, and it is not something to skip out on. At the Market, students can choose from a wide variety of fresh fruits and fruit bowls, which is what the Wednesday Market is mainly known for.

Not only does the Farmers Market sell fruits, they sell all types of healthy juices and snacks such as avocado toast. Students from each academic school pass by this Market and lounge on the Foote Green. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Market had been scaled down, but students are still able to enjoy fresh food while wearing masks and socially distancing.

People around the world celebrate Earth Day every year. Celebrated on Aprill 22, Earth day is a day for everyone to show support for environmental protection. The University of Miami and the Butler Center have a special way of celebrating this very unique holiday on campus. The 16th annual Hug the Lake day was held on campus and hosted by the Butler Center. On this day, students were able to stop by tables and learn information about what makes this day so special. Students also gathered around Lake Osceola and sing the Alma Mater. Students were also informed about the history of the lake, history of campus, and how we can better protect our environment to keep campus healthy and safe for all students and animals who call Lake Osceola home.

The Shalala Student Center is extremely important to student life on campus. The center includes study spaces, lounges, ballrooms, meeting rooms, and a media suite. The Student Center is home to many of the student life organizations, such as the Butler Center.

Lakeside Patio is home to many major concerts and events on campus. It is the perfect spot to eat lunch or enjoy the weather. Lakeside Patio links the Whitten University Center and the Shalala Student Center. While on the patio, students can see Lake Osceola and the pool.

Lake Osceola is a man-made, freshwater lake at the center of the UM campus. The lake connects directly to Biscayne bay. Because of this, a number of reptile species can be seen around the lake.

The motto of the faculty at the School of Architecture is "to build a better world." The SoA offers design programs that are ideal and practical. Staff and faculty view architecture as a combination of civic art and building science.

Eaton Residential College was the third hall to be converted for living. Eaton was an all-women hall up until the 1970s. Eaton is on the east side of Lake Osceola. Rooms in Eaton are set up in suite style.

This year, I-Week took place from April 5th-April 9th with only three out of five days held in-person, and included virtual and in-person components. The theme Generations of Achieve-ments celebrated generations of achievements from Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and Europe.

Soaking IN THE

SUNSHINE A common pastime is the local beaches and access to the Atlantic Ocean from Key Biscayne or South Beach

One of the benefits that students get to enjoy year round is the central location of campus to the beaches of Miami and the Atlantic Ocean. As many know the beach is less than 10 miles away from the main campus, providing quick and easy access to warm weather and a lot of fun in the sun. This allows students to have frequent beach weekend hangouts and bonding time, and studying on the beach, while getting a suntan. The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science campus also provides direct access to a beach allowing for fraternity and sorority members to join forces and hold beach clean-up days in efforts to better the environment. Many members of the campus community take the free campus shuttle out to the RSMAS campus on Virginia Key to take in all of the sunshine on the University’s Marine campus.

honoring a

LEGEND The Department of Theater’s BFA students honor Broadway composer and former alumni Jerry Herman in the best way possible via Zoom: singing

As the fall semester commenced, the students of the theatre department looked at their season differently. With live performances in closed spaces being prohibited by the administration, the students and faculty of the theater department sought creative outlets to conduct their performances via Zoom. With the doors of the Jerry Herman Ring Theater closed this fall due to government and university compliance regarding COVID-19, the students in the BFA Musical Theater program have come together to for a virtual performance called I’ll be Here Tomorrow: The Life of Jerry Hermanhonoring the TonyAward-Winning Broadway composer who passed away December 2019. Senior Ryan Sammonds explains that “the concept of this revue is to honor Jerry Herman who was a great alumni of the school, and we put together a compilation of his greatest songs that really link up with the social climate of today and what’s happened in the world.” Upon asking Sammonds on how rehearsals were during Zoom, he elaborated on how it was peculiar “doing all of our rehearsals over zoom, especially when we were doing numbers with more than one person. Were there hiccups? Yeah, but there’s hiccups everywhere across campus, the city, and the country right now. Given the circumstances I feel like I gave the best performance that I could, and I know my classmates feel the same way as I do.”

Coronavirus

At the eye of the storm for a year like no other, was the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which signigicantly shifted campus life

The COVID-19 pandemic took the world by storm. This deadly virus spread across the globe rapidly and changed everyone’s idea of normalcy. The coronavirus caused the world to go into quarantine and if you did go outside, you were forced to wear a mask and stay six-feet away from everyone. This would be the first time in more than 50 years that the United States went into a mandatory quarantine. This quarantine forced all schools, campuses, businesses, and even countries to shut down. The CDC instructed that everyone had to stay in their homes for 90 days. The dangers of the virus lasted until December 2020 when the CDC announced the COVID-19 vaccine. Now, in May 2021 the spread of the deadly virus has slowed and the world is returning to how it once was.

SPORTS Sports take a hit in the pandemic, but players continue without an audience and following strict safety protocols

From collegiate to professional sports, coronavirus interrupted many competitive seasons with the University of Miami’s baseball and basketball seasons being cut short in March 2020. Athletes worried about their professional prospects, but the NCAA announced that all collegiate players would recieve another year of eligibility to compensate for the lost season. At the end of summer, sports returned in a different way. While a normal game would be held with a crowd full of fans, there was silence during the NBA play-offs. Fondly named “The Bubble” all players, staff and journalists quarantined in order to play a safe post-season. By the time football season arrived, safety measures were put in place for some fans to return to watching their favorite sports in person, but the student section of the Hard Rock Stadium remained empty as students did not get their annual free tickets for games. A year later, stadiums and arenas are filling up again with rowdy yells and songs slowly getting back to normal.

remote LEARNING After given the opportunity to take classes remotely, hundreds of students decided to stay home instead of returning to Miami as the pandemic surged on

I found it very difficult to cope with the change of being in person to being remote in many ways. Being a freshman and never having really experienced university before, I really had to navigate myself around the intensity of the college workload alongside the difficulty of not having the in-person connection with my professors and classmates. The biggest thing that helped me whilst being a remote student was really putting myself out there no matter how uncomfortable or nervous I was. I ended up participating in the RADical Health Program through the OSCI department, which was a life changing experience for me. I was able to connect with students who were going through so many similar things as me and I felt like I was able to build friendships online, which can be a very big struggle. I have continued my involvement with OCSI and hope to become a facilitator for the RADical Health Program this year! I also joined the Kesem family and am so excited to be a camp counselor for Kesem at Home this summer. It has been amazing to meet so many wonderful people and I look forward to seeing what else I will get involved in once I ALEKSANDRA PEEVA am on campus!

In order to focus on my work while at home, I developed a routine for myself that fit around my schedule and helped me really accomplish all my tasks throughout the day with minimal procrastination. For me, one of the best feelings is being able to tick a task off my to-do list, which is the reason why I made sure I always had a planner next to me to keep me on track, especially before finals week! For longterm tasks, I used Notion to organize my time schedule for getting the tasks completed. I found that by keeping my assignments organized and readily available really helped make sure I was getting the most out of each day to reach my goals of getting them completed. I also made an effort to do the things I love doing most in my spare time. I picked up a new hobby of cleaning and have found it very therapeutic on times when I feel down or very stressed out. I also love to cook and to go on walks, so it has been nice to be able to do those whenever I would like to whilst being at home. There have been many challenges with being a remote student, but I found that once I discovered that balance between school and home life, it really did make things go a lot smoother and helped me minimize any stress that I experienced. Although it sounds like I had everything planned out and knew what I was doing, it was a gradual task getting to that point. One of the biggest challenges was discovering what studying habits worked for me. It came as a shock how fast-paced everything seemed to be, and I knew that if I didn’t get a grasp on things, then I would most likely have gotten myself into a big pile of tasks that I just could not tackle. However, it was most definitely a journey to discover what works best for me.

Quarantine

CHRONICLES

Just over 1000 students contracted coronavirus over the course of the academic year whether it was at home, in a hotel, or in student housing relocation

QUARANTINE ON CAMPUS As students who lived on campus tested positive for the coronavirus, they were relocated to hotels or quarantine housing. Junior Amanda Costello, who lived in University Village was placed in Eaton Residential College. “Quarantine definitely wasn’t fun but the school honestly did the best they could,” Costello said. Students were able to choose their meals every day, which were then delivered to them in their isolation rooms. There was also outdoor time every day for those who were quarantined on campus. “We got to see other people that were experiencing the same thing as us and it was funny to watch that as the days went by little friend groups started to form while we were outside,” Costello said. Although no one wants to be in a quarantine situation let alone feeling the symptoms of covid, the university was able to create an environments for students to get better and keep the rest of the school safe. “Overall, I wouldn’t want to go back, but I know my experience could have been much worse and the school really did their best to make students feel comfortable, safe, and cared for,” Costello said.

Symptoms - Fever or chills - Cough - Shortness of breath - Fatigue - Muscle or body aches - Headache - New loss of taste or smell - Sore throat - Congestion or runny nose - Nausea or vomiting - Diarrhea


6 QUARANTINE TIPS FROM A STUDENT Senior Michelle Marino, a very active member on campus, contracted Covid over the New Year and this is how she got better. This is not medical advice. Don’t get Covid. I always tried to stay away from

1.large gatherings during the year, but unfortunately I got it after New Year’s from a family vacation. I had a super mild case, but I now have long Covid. Both vaccines have helped my long Covid by 90%.

If you lose your sense of taste and smell

2.eat spicy food and chocolate because that’s

probably all you can taste. Try and smell strong scents—that’s supposed to make everything come back faster. These symptoms mean you have mild covid which is somewhat positive. Make sure you have an oximeter. This helps

3.monitor your oxygen levels, which is super

important when you have Covid. Normal levels are 96-99. They’re super cheap on Amazon or at any drug store.

The Covid Cocktail: vitamin D3, vitamin C, vitamin B12, and

6.zinc. This will help your body fight the infection. I had mild covid and maybe it was because of this cocktail. I only had a little fatigue, slight headache, and one day of body aches.

COVID COCKTAIL

Take this time to actually take care of

4.yourself and FaceTime friends often! If you’re quarantined you may not be able to physically be with people, but our phones can connect us in amazing ways.

Vitamin D

Zinc Vitamin C

Do not force yourself to be super active, but ake sure you et so e ste s in ew reasons for this: it’s bad for your lungs when you sit and lay down all day and it may cause pneumonia if there’s a build up of mucus. Getting steps in will help you prevent that and may help to ensure you don’t lose physical stamina when you’re done with Covid.

SHOT

Miller School of Medicine is a crutial part of the covid vaccine effort As they finish inoculating local volunteers for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine trial and continue recruiting for a new vaccine trial, doctors at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine are elated by early indications that the Moderna vaccine and another one are extremely effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19. “It’s incredibly exciting,” said Dr. Susanne Doblecki-Lewis, clinical director for the Miller School’s Division of Infectious Diseases and the principal investigator of the Moderna trial. “This shows we can have vaccines for COVID-19 that are highly effective—and hopefully, we’ll have several because they will make an incredible difference in the course of the pandemic.” Last week, Moderna announced that preliminary data shows its two-dose vaccine is 94.5 percent effective in the prevention of symptomatic COVID-19, the infectious disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Just days earlier, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer announced that its vaccine was more than 90 percent effective. If it was not for the willing participants in Greater Miami and elsewhere, Doblecki-Lewis, an associate professor of clinical medicine, said the Moderna vaccine trials would not have generated positive results so quickly. “Our participants should be really proud— without them we would not have this data, and I think we’ll need a lot more volunteers in the future because it’s important that we have multiple vaccine candidates that are tested,” she said. “At this time in the pandemic, volunteering is a really positive thing to do to make sure we have the best possible vaccine and enough of it.” University doctors are now recruiting participants for a one-dose vaccine developed by Janssen, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. They have just a few weeks to wrap up enrollment by the end of the year and hope

to get close to 1,500 participants. “At the moment, the trial is going very well, and the patients we have had so far have very few side effects,” said Dr. Dushyantha Jayaweera, principal investigator for the Janssen trial and a professor of medicine in the infectious disease research unit at the Miller School. All of the vaccines they are testing at the University so far—and most under clinical trials in the U.S.—operate by attacking the disease’s spike protein, which is how COVID-19 enters into the body’s cells and replicates. “When COVID-19 came about, many thought that the spike protein was the best target, but until now we weren’t sure that was the right focus,” Doblecki-Lewis explained. “It turns out that it was a good bet.” Story courtesy of News@TheU by Janette Neuwahl Tannen 11-23-2020

JOHNSON & JOHNSON This Janssen vaccine is a one-dose vaccine on the market with a 72% efficiency rate and was the last to be authorized by the FDA.. This vaccine also differs from Pfizer and Moderna because while the other two utilize mRNA technology, Johnson & Johnson spikes the protein in SARS-2 triggering an immune respose.

OTHER VACCINES Although only three are approved for use in the United States, there are several other vaccines being administered throughout the world such as Sputnik V, Oxford-AstraZeneca, Sinopharm, Covidecia, Covaxin, CoviVac, and more.

FUTURE OF LEARNING The School of Architecture is known for being technologically advanced. Senior architecture student Morgan O’Brien was able to experience this technology firsthand with a robotic arm. Morgan said that using the robotic arm “gave me a better understanding of what ruled surfaces are and how they can produce shapes that might not seem to be overtly constructed from straight lines; I got more experience using Grasshopper, the programming software we used to develop the script for the robot.” By Carolina Camus

BEAUTIFUL COSTUMES

TAKE action

The College of Arts & Sciences used the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to improve both the in-person and virtual learning modalities offered during the year This past year, the College of Arts within the Arts and Sciences school expertly found a balance between providing their in-person students with valuable learning experiences, while also allowing for remote students to master their craft. To do so, many departments had to reflect on their weaknesses and undergo improvements to better cater to their students

and faculty. “This semester, the Political Science department decided to work on increasing communication. As the communications director, I’ve been able to start up departmental social media platforms and revamp our website” said Carly Payne, a sophomore majoring in political science. This way, political science could keep in touch with students.

SCIENCE

in action Though the COVID-19 pandemic affected lives over night, students studying microbiology and other sciences benefited in many ways through classroom learning Students in the sciences had a unique outlook on the spread of the novel coronavirus and its various strains. Many studied the virus and learned more about the nature of pandemics and contagious diseases. Others took the opportunity to study the mental health impacts of the disease, “Through my lab, I’ve been studying patients throughout different stages of lockdown: how many new locations people went, how many hours they spent outdoors, and how this relates to their emotional state via self-reporting,” says Gill Mitchell, a senior at the university studying neuroscience. She maintained a positive outlook: “Even though COVID-19 has presented new challenges in various aspects of

life, it gave me an exciting opportunity to learn about people’s behaviors and how the extreme and abrupt shift in society has affected their mental health.” For students who opted to stay remote, they found that many of their classes were still enjoyable and educational online. “Taking Roger William’s Microbiology lab was an unforgettable experience! He made the transition from in-person to online pretty smooth” remarked Meera Patel, a microbiology major who opted to go remote in the fall semester. The science departments ensured that students who stayed home for health concerns were able to keep connected with the vibrant University of Miami community. ANIMAL STATUES

Shannon Land, a sophomore majoring in marketing, management, and economics, says this about the school’s COVID-19 response. “One of the things I love about being a student in the business school is the endless opportunity to improve yourself. There’s this environment of change that you can feel and see in the students. We all want to grow and challenge ourselves to reach higher and further. The business school hosts so many webinars, even during COVID, that anyone studying any field of business can learn more about their field. Compared to other schools, I believe the business school’s response to COVID has been much more proactive. They want to make sure we’re always present and participating in our online classes, and the professors go out of their way to make it happen.” Professional fraternities like Delta Sigma Pi have continued their recruiting through Zoom, and many other organizations conduct their meetings virtually. TAMID has used the opportunity to bring in a number of guest speakers, specifically TAMID alumni, who do not live in the area and would otherwise be unable to join club meetings. Virtual meetings are not a perfect substitute for typical activities, but offer a safe way for students to socialize outside the classroom. The business school has also hosted numerous virtual seminars on a variety of topics including career-building and women in business. This school year looks quite different for the business school, but the highly-ranked curriculum and resources have been successfully adapted to a hybrid format that is appropriate for students’ physical and mental health.

“The curriculum offered in the Miami Herbert Business School’s MBA program is unlike any other due to its innovative and rigorous approach, which prepares students to become global leaders in business.” -Gaby Lucas, Full-Time MBA Student

“At Miami Herbert, I have been able to grow and learn alongside other hardworking professionals from around the world. The network of individuals presented to us goes beyond our program and even the walls of the business school; you really feel a part of the whole University of Miami community.” -Krystine Pereda, Professional MBA Student

“The experience outside the formal classroom is as significant as what takes place within the classroom. Students are given the opportunity to learn from exceptional guest speakers who are prominent business and policy leaders. I’ve learned how to deal with adversity, leadership in times of crisis, failure, and resiliency. It has been an invaluable experience.” -Margarita Sinko, BBA in Finance

“The top-rated professors, intelligent peers and ability to carve your own path offered by the full-time MBA program, is designed to have graduates ready to enter the career force as vibrant leaders.” -Michael Hajjar, Full-Time MBA Student

PATTI HERBERT

1936-2020

Patti Herbert played a large role at the ‘U’ for a majority of her life. Being involved on campus before and after she graduated is the reason why she is remembered today On July 27, 2020 a longtime University of Miami alumna and benefactor by the name of Patti Herbert passed away at the age of 84. As a business student in 1954, Patti was very active, even becoming a member of Iota Alpha Pi, the first national sorority for Jewish women. It was also here where she met a fellow student that would become her husband, Allan Herbert. The couple would eventually earn degrees from the business school. Allan, a Bachelor of Business Administration in 1955 and an M.B.A. three years later; and Patti, a Bachelor

of Business Administration with a concentration in finance and marketing in 1957. They were both inducted into the Iron Arrow Society, the highest honor attainable at the University. As longtime philanthropists, the couple has donated more than $100 million in lifetime giving to help transform academics and student life. Her willingness to help others will forever be remembered. Rest in Peace Patti Herbert, your university family will keep your memory alive for years to come.

cutting into HEALTH

The community aims to return to normalcy as hands-on simulation teaching with students, while maintaining COVID-19 safety protocalls, implemented by the university Celebrations are in order for Dean Cindy Murno as it was announced on the 26th of January 2021 that the current dean of the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies was appointed to the NINR’s National Advisory Council for Nursing Research.This was a full circle moment for Dean Murno, as this was the same council that awarded her a fellowship to pursue her doctoral degree and dreams of becoming a nurse scientist in 1989. This is just one more accomplishment that Dr. Munro gets to add to her belt. While working on her Ph.D. at Virginia Commonwealth University, Munro was a part of the discovery team that found that oral bacteria can infect heart valves. This discovery led to the first of three patents Munro holds. She then led research to finding how dental plaque is a risk for pneumonia in patients on mechanical ventilation. This discovery led to practices that changed the oral care guidelines for intensive care patients. Congratulations to Dean Murno! Thank you to your continued contributions.

A DREAM come true

A graduate student is offered his dream job and makes a life-changing decision to move John Carlo Tulinao, a University of Miami graduate student, received a National Science Teaching Association award for his success in connecting with his students in the classroom through exemplary teaching. Before coming to the United States, Tulinao worked as a music educator for seven years in the Philippines. He grew up with the dream of teaching children that shared the same passion as him. John Carlo was then offered a job teaching first grade in Phoenix. Because of this opportunity, he dropped everything and moved across the world.

The musician and first grade teacher is currently studying to earn a doctorate in applied learning sciences online at the University of Miami while teaching. His ability to use music as a springboard for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) lessons has earned him recognition from the National Science Teaching Association, as well as being named a Shell Urban Science Educator Award recipient. This award is only given to a handful of teachers nationwide who demonstrate excellence in implementing a STEM curriculum, while fostering an appreciation for other cultures.

WAVE OFinnovation The ibis nature of the Miller School of Medicine researchers shone in their eagerness and effectiveness in continuing discovery in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic

With all that went on this year, nothing curbed the tide of innovation at the Miller School of Medicine. Early on, a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial was underway and claimed the praise of Vice President Pence and Gov. Ron DeSantis at a Miller School of Medicine conference. Dr. Susanne Doblecki-Lewis, a UHealth infectious disease expert who led the initiative states, “We are testing vaccines with the goal of finding a safe and effec tive way to halt the spread of the virus itself.” Glory and honor for the day of hope in finding a vaccine was only just one of the innova tions at UM’s medical campus this year. Biomedical engineer and triple ‘Cane, Noel Ziebarth, developed tech niques to help improve eyesight while at the same time, two Miller School of Medicine surgeons and UMIT’s Innovate lab created a program that produced 3D holograms from MRI images.

FUTURE OF

medical education

Graduates were celebrated at the annual White Coat Ceremony for students going into medicine 205 future physicians were welcomed in the Miller School of Medicine 2024 graduating class. Minji Kim, a MD/MPH candidate for the Class of 2023, worked closely with Ms. Tanyika Stephenson to organize the White Coat Ceremony for the first year students at the Hard Rock Stadium. “Despite the pandemic and the chaos in this world, I think the White Coat Ceremony was important for the first year students to mark the beginning of their medical career. I know that it would have been better if everyone’s families and loved ones could attend, but I hope that it was a memorable experience,” remarks Minji. The Miller Medical school has effectively responded to the pandemic through transitioning online and giving back to the community. They hosted multiple panels from interest groups, enforced social distancing, and their students dedicated time since March to working on COVID-related projects.

- Principles of Chemistry I & Laboratory - Quantitative Analytical Chemistry - Introduction to Structure and Dynamics “When I think about why I wanted to become a teacher, I think of the educators throughout my life that have fulfilled the role of mentor for me. I grew up in a socioeconomically disadvantaged household and my parents did not always emphasize the importance of an education. Somehow, the teachers throughout my life saw something special in me and kept pushing me to be better and showed me that education was a means to get out of the bad situation I grew up in.

- Globalization and Change - Russian Politics - Intnl. Leadership, Strategy, & Decision Making - World in Crisis - Global Perspectives “I could not see myself doing anything else. I come from a long family of educators. Growing up I was surrounded by books, debates and discussions. I realize how my family and its stories inspired me. It was not a straight journey though. My first degree is in international law. I was very fortunate to travel for work to many exciting places. It was so intriguing to see how culture, historic memories, and religion shape how different people see themselves, others and the world around them. I learn with and from my students every day and could not see myself doing anything else.”

Lawrence Smiglewski

Lecturer of Theatre Arts and Head of the Stage Management Program

- Principles of Stage Management - Advanced Stage Management I & II “I have had the opportunity to Stage Manage on Broadway and all across the country on various national tours. Being able to share that knowledge with the next generation of theatre managers brings me more joy than I can express. When the lightbulb goes off, when the student has that “A-Ha” moment of learning or refining a skill, that is what I love so much about teaching Stage Management. I love being a theatre professor, because I help my students strive for their dreams - be there to cheer their successes and help pick them up when they fall.”

It is like I was able to make a profession out of one of my most significant hobbies! I’ve enjoyed a profession that involved life- long study and learning. It kept things interesting. I’ve been a faculty member in the Political Science Department at the University of Miami for over 30 years. During this period, I’ve taught four courses a semester, with approximately 35 students in each. And, despite the decades I’ve studied Political Science, I pick up something new from my students every semester.”

Michael Touchton, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Political Science & Faculty Lead for Global Health - Advanced Study of the Americas - Introduction to Comparative Politics - Introduction to Global Health - Latin American Politics - Comparative Public Policy “Teaching about comparative public health is important in general, but carries extra significance during the pandemic. My classes this last year have emphasized the measures governments can take to combat the pandemic, as well as why many governments do not enact such measures. These classes help us understand public health outcomes around the world and offer lessons for how we (and others) can design better policies, deliver better services, and, ultimately, save lives.”

Zooming towards Fall

Graduation

Graduates and their families watched from home as the pandemic moved the three commencment ceremonies online in the effort of health and safety From December 10 to 11, The University of Miami held three virtual commencements to commemorate all of the 2020 ‘Cane graduates. Due to the COVID -19 outbreak, the ‘U’ was forced to move their usual Spring commencement celebration from the University of Miami campus to a virtual Fall slideshow. In October, graduating students were invited to create and customize their own slide to be shown in place of the ceremonial walk across the stage. This allowed for everyone to celebrate in the safety of their own homes, across the world. During the Commencement, President Julio Frenk ended his speech with the powerful statement, “Times of crisis reveal our character. The triple crises of a global pandemic, its dire economic consequences, and social unrest are unprecedented. Against that backdrop, you have demonstrated that you are capable of making short-term sacrifices for long-term goals and that you are willing to look at the bigger picture.”

Leaping Into

Commencment At Hard Rock Stadium the Class of 2021 took their final steps as ‘Cane students, transitioning into their newly awarded life long role as alumni

After a year of prolonged graduations and virtual celebrations the University of Miami chose the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens to allow for social distancing. Instead of the traditional two hour ceremony, organizers chose to reduce speech time and eliminated the student procession that normally takes place at the beginning and the ending of the ceremony. Students and families that weren’t comfortable with attending the in-person event or were unable to travel were able to watch virtually through a live stream video from their homes. Senior graduate James Lai delivered an inspiring speech on how the pandemic didn’t hold him or his fellow classmates back, stating that “Because of our determination to bounce back, and our friends, mentors, parents, teachers, and administrators who have helped us along the way, each and every one of us is here today and we should be proud.” While earning his degree in biomedical-engineering James Lai designed and developed 3-D-printable swabs for COVID-19 testing during the initial shortage in the early part of the pandemic Spring 2020.

Employee Graduates

“I don’t get to interact with students in my employee role, so volunteering at commencement has always been a highlight for me. It truly is a joyous occasion for everyone involved, and I have always been happy to do my part to make sure it’s a great experience for the graduates and their guests!” - Maria Amezquita

“I am so thankful for the 6+ years I have had as a student and staff member of the University of Miami. [RSMAS] is an absolutely incredible place to call home with its world-renowned researchers, oceanside views, and The Wetlab. I will forever be grateful for logging more than 900 scientific dives with our coral restoration team, making lifelong friendships in class and the community!” - Dalton Hesley

Long ago graduation caps were plain and simple. They were traditionally black with only a colored tassel to decorate the ceremonial cap. Nowadays, decorating your graduation cap marks your transition from student to graduate. The décor is used for students to express themselves, their beliefs, perspectives and aspirations. Many students use their cap to demonstrate their creativity through aesthetically pleasing designs of their school symbol. Others use their caps to highlight their personality and some even choose to mock the formality of the occasion through comedy. Others design political statements to demonstrate their beliefs. Senior Annette Rizo discussed the meaning behind her grad cap stating, “As many of you know, I am a first generation American and college student. My abuela, María Líla Castellon, lead our family’s exodus during the Sandinista Revolution to the United States. Growing up, she told my cousins and I that education is the only way to succeed in life. This degree is not only for me, but for the woman that made it possible for me to be here, and to represent the motherland this Friday. This degree is yours too. Abuela, te amo, Nicaragüense por gracia de Dios.” ‘U’ BLING RSMAS graduate student wears a gemstone encrusted ‘U’ on her cap. Photo by Mike Montero

It's a

BLING THING Every season brings new, icy pieces to the Hurricane jewelry collection this year adding touchdown rings The swag rocked on the sideline paid homage to the program’s roots. When Howard Schnellenberger arrived at UM as head football coach in 1979, he knew what it would take to turn the Hurricanes into a college football power. By building an ‘invisible fence’ around Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties, UM football successfully recruited virtually every high-school football talent from South Florida to feed the program with players that helped take over the national football landscape. Now, five national titles later, current head coach Manny Diaz looks to rebuild the Canes to glory. But in order to do so, he’ll need to load the roster with players who want to ‘make the crib great.’ Canes fans say The U invented swagger, but what they miss is that The U continues to reinvent swagger every season. In 2020, the Canes deputed the second edition of the touchdown rings, which paid homage to Miami’s rise to national prominence. Whenever a player accounts for a touchdown, they don the touchdown rings, which loudly and proudly read ‘The Crib.’ According to Miami Athletics, the rings are made of orange and green sapphires and contain 829 stones. The rings weigh 100 grams combined – 50 grams each. The turnover chain 4.0 also shows the importance of the local area, with the three South Florida counties jumping out in bright orange and green. “The state of Florida ‘U’ charm weighs 300 grams, while the chain itself weighs two kilograms and is about 30 inches long. There are 1,400 sapphire stones in the “U” – half green and half orange. The state of Florida portion of the charm has 1,900 white sapphires,” Miami Athletics said. Both the rings and the chain took three months each to complete. The hard work and perseverance it took to hand craft each individual jewel is not unlike the effort to construct a football dynasty in South Florida.

UM also logged 337 rushing yards, a season after averaging less than 200 yards on the ground per game. Cam’Ron Harris carried the load with 134 yards and two touchdowns, with the dynamic freshmen duo of Jaylen Knighton and Don Chaney combining for 59 and 52 yards. Just over 8,000 fans were present for the contest, short of the 13,000 that UM o ficials allowed No students other than the players and other extremely essential personal were allowed into Hard Rock Stadium, with the band, cheerleaders and other student organizations absent.

FOOTBALL VS. FLORIDA STATE 249


TIGERS TAKE the Win

A loss at Clemson shows that the football team needs to buckle down if they're going to have the improved season we had hoped for The Hurricanes have been looking for a return to the national spotlight for years, and there was no shortage of attention at the beginning of the 2020 season. Three consecutive games were featured on ESPN’s pregame morning blockbuster, College Gameday, attracting large audiences for matchups at Louisville, at home against Florida State and at Clemson. The show’s setup was different this season. Gone were the marching bands, cheerleaders, and thousands of fans on set. But classics including the guest picker and Lee Corso’s headgear gameday prediction remained a staple on the popular program. Corso correctly predicted a Miami win by donning a Sebastian the Ibis head against Louisville and FSU. The 'U' has long been a national draw. But a new offensive scheme under transfer quarterback D’Eriq King gave the Canes so e lon needed on field e cite ent to atch the constant cycle of hope and hype. “I’ve seen impressive improvements,” ESPN’s Chris Fowler said in a conference call the week of the Clemson game. “Nobody in college football, in my opinion, has more highimpact newcomers via the transfer free agency market.” Fowler, who called the play-by-play for all three of UM’s Gameday matchups, lauded the simplicity of Miami’s offensive scheme and confidence o its layers, es ecially on the o ensive line Fowler’s broadcast partner Kirk Herbstreit cited the new attitude in Coral Gables. “There's been an obvious talent gap between Clemson and every school in the ACC, but in calling a couple of the Miami games this year…King gives them hope. He kind of, I think, makes this feel different, he makes Miami feel different to me.”

Down But

NEVER OUT Down 41-31 with just under a quarter to go, Quarterback D'Eriq King took over allowing Miami to secure their win of 6-1 against NC State It was a Friday night in Raleigh, North Carolina. The North Carolina State Wolfpack just scored, seconds into the fourth quarter. Miami’s defense was shredded up and down the field by a NC State offense that finished the game with 410 yards. Trailing 41-31, things looked bleak for the 'Canes. Enter quarterback D’Eriq King. Just three days after a contentious presidential election, we were reminded that perhaps the UM signal caller should be put in charge. After all, he knows how to reduce deficits. King completed 31 of his 41 passes for a whopping 405 yards and five touchdowns, and added 105 rushing yards for good measure. His most memorable pass of the evening came on a third-and-7 after Miami had been forced to settle for field goals on its two prior drives. Still down four points, King found senior receiver Mike Harley open on a slant route, who ran past the first down sticks all the way to the end zone. The 54-yard touchdown put Miami ahead 44-41, which stood until the clock ran out. The Canes defense underwent a hard first three quarters but bowed up in the fourth. The Wolfpack had just six yards and one first down in the final 14:55 of the Atlantic Coast Conference primetime duel. A DJ Ivey interception in the final minutes sealed the deal, earning UM a thrilling win. “We knew there would be adversity in the second half, but we knew we’d win the game if stuck together and that’s exactly what we did,” Miami head coach Manny Diaz said. “We stuck together, we didn’t panic, we got some stops on defense and offensively we were just hard to stop all night. What D’Eriq King did tonight was phenomenal.” The Canes improved to 6-1 with the win and kept their hopes alive for a run at the conference title.

Students SHUT OUT

The university allowed 13,000 fans into Hard Rock Stadium; however, some of the students at the university still continued to face obstacles when wanting to go to the football games Even as UM allowed 13,000 fans into Hard Rock Stadium, students were given the cold shoulder. While South Florida was battling a spike in COVID cases in late summer 2020, Miami-Dade County decided to allow 20 percent capacity at Hard Rock Stadium for UM and Dolphins games. It appeared, against all odds, that students would have an in-person football season to look forward to. hose ho es were dashed a week e ore the first a e when an e ail from President Julio Frenk to the student body stated that students would not e allowed into the stadiu or at least the first two ho e a es hat policy was eventually extended to cover the entire season. The university attempted to recreate the gameday experience on campus by hosting outdoor, socially distanced watch parties. UM’s spirit squads and Sebastian the Ibis were present at these events, which featured free 'Canes apparel and food for attendees. Still, this pseudo-gameday environment didn’t please students, especially knowing non-student fans were able to access the real deal on gameday. Of course, many students wanting a real gameday experience simply bought tickets on StubHub and other sites meant for the general public, knowing that the school could do little to stop them from purchasing tickets. However, the limited supply of seats did drive up prices, creating a situation where wealth—not the status of being a UM student—was the biggest determinant of whether one was getting into Hard Rock.

Howard Schnellenberger

1934-2021

Rest in peace Howard Schellenberger, the father of modern Miami Hurricanes football. In 1979, the Miami Hurricane football program was struggling. In the search of yet another head coach, there were rumblings about dropping down a division or even folding the program outright. But then, Howard Schellenberger was hired and instilled little doubt that he be capable to build a powerhouse program. A baritone-voiced, pipe-smoking, Kentucky gentleman,

Schellenberger was an imposing figure the moment he stepped onto the Coral Gables campus. Coach Schellenberger kept a code of conduct in his program that rivaled one of a drill sergeant. “When he spoke, people shook,” said former UM and NFL quarterback Jim Kelly. “You were scared that he was just saying something that would make you all frightened.” Schellenberger established the imaginary “State of Miami.” By building an invisible fence around the talent-rich MiamiDade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, and then extending its borders up to Interstate 4 in Central Florida, some of the country’s best high school football athletes no longer overlooked UM and found themselves becoming Hurricanes. This recruiting philosophy remains at the core of UM’s identity in present day. “Nobody could stop Howard Schnellenberger. He carried the University of Miami football program on his shoulders, literally, when nobody else believed it, and won a national championship,” former Miami assistant and NFL head coach Marc Trestman said. “I don't know that there is Miami football without Howard Schellenberger, not the way that we know it,” head coach Manny Diaz commented. While Schellenberger soon moved on from the program, his legacy will live on forever. Everything UM accomplished afterward can be traced back to his rein.

Blocking DOUBTS

There may have been doubt about even holding a season during COVID, but the program was doubtless once the season got underway The Hurricanes in 2019 went 10-16 and its roster was dominated by freshmen. In 2020, with the coronavirus pandemic in the background and still highlighted by inexperience, Miami put excuses in the rearview mirror, going 5-3 in an abbreviated but daunting Atlantic Coast Conference schedule. After the season, UM sat at No. 11 in the AVCA National Coaches rankings, its highest ranking in program history. Shortened due to COVID, the 'Canes played just eight times in 2020, with all matches being in conference. The ACC divided programs into three ods o five tea s each, with each tea layin every in-pod squad twice in the form of two-game weekend series. For Miami, that meant seeing Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Clemson and Florida State. UM split each series except the Wake Forest series, which they swept. Notably, the Canes’ were also the sole team to defeat Georgia Tech on the season. That, along with a 3-0 win over FSU to conclude the season, were the season’s highlights. “It was so fun winning on senior night and we ust wanted to finish on a ood note and have these

Let’s Play More In lieu of a COVID-restricted regular season, volleyball was given extra spring matches

The Hurricanes were only able to play eight volleyball matches during the fall regular season. The Atlantic Coast Conference-only fall scheduling format may have been unorthodox, but it came with a prize: more match play in the spring. Miami took full advantage of the ten additional dates it was given. Against a new set of teams than the ones faced in the fall, UM took a winning record away from the bonus season. “I’m just so proud of this group, under the circumstances that we were in, they had the ability to move on from one point to the next, one match to the next and improved in every aspect,” head coach Jose “Keno” Gandara said through Miami Athletics. “The surpassed so many different expectations this season and I think they are proud of what they accomplished this season.” A pair of sweeps against Virginia on March 13-14 as well as a senior day victory over North Carolina were among numerous highlights. Individually, standouts included defensive specialist Amanda Falck, who did not play in the fall, as well as the continued development of star underclassmen Savannah Vach, Kennedy Prince and Angela Grieve. “It was a group effort this whole season with the next-man up mentality,” Gandara said. “It was a matter of our players understanding new concepts. We have a really good setter who is able to utilize players in their best positions and we were able to take advantage of opponent weaknesses in order to do what we needed to do.”

This class of seniors has been through it all. A coaching change, upset victories, hurricane related disru tions and on field inconsistencies t s een a wild ride ro freshman year to senior year, with their careers coming full circle. The 2020 season was anything but normal, but the seniors always had the same goal every time they stepped foot on the pitch. “We appreciate the effort and energy this senior class has poured into our program,” Miami head coach Sarah Barnes said through Hurricane Athletics. hey ve attled in uries, a very di ficult season and year, dealin with the ande ic Regardless, they have continued to work hard and compete. I’m grateful to our administration and president that they had the opportunity to have a senior season.” Lexi Castellano-Mugica, Morgan Asmussen, Tia Dupont and Michelle Giamportone went through the tumultuous year together, while they each went through their own unique challenges. Castellano-Mugica tore her ACL in an offseason practice between the 2018 and 2019 season. The injury forced her to sit out the ’19 season— which was scheduled to be her senior year. The Boca Raton-native was forced to rehab and redshirt but returned stronger than ever in 2020. The defender’s goal at Virginia Tech was her individual highlight of the season. Asmussen earned a spot in the starting lineup for the ’20 season, but soccer is far from her only pursuit on Coral Gables.

I can truly say I wouldn’t have wanted to do it with anyone else.”

Miami athletes earned numerous awards at the ACC and NCAA Championships The leaderboards at the Atlantic Coast Conference and NCAA Championships were filled with Miami Hurricane swimmers and divers. Second-year women’s diver Mia Vallée earned both a gold and a silver medal at the conference meet in Greensboro, N.C, in the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard events.. But the highlight of the weekend came on Feb. 20, when the Miami men swept the platform dive medal table for the second consecutive year. Senior Zach Cooper took home a gold medal with a 421.50 score, followed closely by sophomores Max Flory and Brodie Scapens, earning silver and bronze with scores of 416.05 and 380.70. On the swimming side, Miami’s top performance came from second-year Adrianna Cera, who’s 16:40.36 time in the mile-event was the sixth-best in program history. Cooper, Flory and Scapens all reached the NCAA Championships, along with fellow team member and freshman Jack Matthews. Vallée and Emma Gullstrand meanwhile made the NCAA Championships on the women’s side. Cooper’s bronze metal on March 27 capped off the season in style for UM. “They’re on the right track. They’re a hard-working group. We train twice a day and coming down the stretch here, we kept getting stronger every competition,” Miami head coach Randy Ableman said. “We were good at conference meet, better at Zones and even better at NCAAs, for the kids who performed. That’s the way it should be. It makes me feel good that we’re on the right track with their preparation and that they’re bought in. It was a really messed up year in a lot of ways, but they handled the adversity really well. I’m really proud of our results.”

Soccer earned additional match dates in the spring semester due to the coronavirus pandemic A disrupted and disjoined season caused by COVID-19 gave Atlantic Coast Conference soccer programs the right to play spring matches, something previously unprecedented in women’s collegiate soccer. The Hurricanes took the opportunity to compete against a quartet of in-state, non-conference foes. Miami came away with its first victory of the calendar year on March 14, when it dispatched the Florida International Panthers at Cobb Stadium, 4-0. The five Miami goals across the four matches were all scored by different players, displaying the team efforts put forth by UM. Arguably the most memorable match of the spring ’21 campaign was a 2-0 seasonending loss to Florida. But it wasn’t the on-pitch play that made it unique. Miami head coach Sarah Barnes - knowing the challenges it takes to play in a pandemic with shorthanded rosters - brought in UM women’s basketball players Moulayna Sidi Baba and Naomi Mbandu for the season finale. Mbandu took on the pressure of playing goalkeeper in the match. “The fact that we’re playing this game, given the pandemic and roster changes, is a tribute to the players’ desire to compete and challenge themselves,” Barnes said in a press release. “We were looking at every possible way to find a goalkeeper – we tried to contact the club team, volleyball has a former goalie, but they’re competing tomorrow as well, but then coach Katie Meier put it in her team’s group chat and had several players who wanted to help our team,” Barnes added. “The basketball team and staff wanted to do whatever they could to help us out and make this game happen, so we are all truly grateful to Naomi, Moulayna and their program.”

Overcoming

ADVERSITY In spite of injuries and other challenges throughout the season, Miami made no excuses and finished its season strong

The Hurricanes found themselves with just seven scholarship players available at times throughout the 2020-21 season. Some programs would have folded at the challenge of playing that shorthanded, especially during COVID-19. Not Miami. Standout veterans Chris Lykes, Sam Waardenburg and Rodney Miller and underclassmen Anthony Walker and Earl Timberlake suffered lost time due to injury. On-court inconsistencies threatened to derail the season, with a string of February losses testing the players’ mental toughness. The 'Canes responded by winning three critical matchups down the home stretch. A triumphant regular-season finale over Boston College led Miami to take down Pittsburgh and Clemson in consecutive days in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament. Miami also notched a signature 77-75 win over Duke on Feb. 1. Sophomore Isaiah Wong was UM’s offensive star, leading the Canes with 17.1 points per game. He appeared in a team-high 35 minutes per game while making 35 percent of his 3-pointers and 43 percent of his total shots from the field. In both ACC tournament wins, Wong scored 20 points. Seniors Kameron McGusty and Elijah Olaniyi averaged double-figure scoring per game, with 13.3 and 10.5 points respectively. “Well, that was a heck of a fight,” Miami head coach Jim Larrañaga said after his team’s season ended with a conference tournament loss to Georgia Tech. “I thought we gave it all we had right up until the final buzzer.” “I couldn’t be more proud of our guys,” McGusty said “We definitely bonded. On the court, off the court, all the traveling you know, there is only six of us. Not a lot of us, so you know we were talking to each other a lot. We loved being together. I’m definitely going to remember this year for sure.”

In a high-energy, total team effort, the Hurricanes notched their sixth win over basketball powerhouse Duke in a decade In a season filled with inconsistencies, the Hurricanes earned a blockbuster 77-75 win over the Duke Blue Devils and reasserted themselves as one of Duke’s most prominent kryptonite. The win at the Watsco Center on Feb. 1 was the sixth win for UM over the basketball blue blood in the past decade. Miami led 57-51 with eight minutes left. With 14 seconds on the clock, the Blue Devils scored to trim the 'Canes lead to two. Duke failed to hoist a shot as the clock expired in Coral Gables. Senior Elijah Olaniyi finished with a game-high 21 points, shooting 3-for-5 from 3-point range. Walker and Wong scored 16 points each. “The energy was there,” Wong said. “We were all hyped, we were all giving us props, giving each other props. We all clapped for each other, we all felt happy at the moment.”

TRIUMPHS AND

Challenges

This season was always going to be challenge even before a single ball was dribbled but the 'Canes were up for any opposition faced on the court The Miami Hurricanes didn’t sign up for the off-court distractions that came with the season. Nobody did. In a game defined by rhythm and momentum, the Canes suffered through three game cancellations due to COVID outbreaks in opponents’ programs. UM finished 11-11 with an 8-10 mark in Atlantic Coast Conference play. There were ups, including a pair of wins against North Carolina and a win over Florida State, and there were downs, including a loss in the FSU rematch and two defeats by Syracuse. A three-point loss to No. 1 Louisville on January 26 personified both the frustration and growth the team underwent. Before the ACC Tournament, Miami won three consecutive games over Boston College, Wake Forest and Clemson. Three players averaged more than 10 points per game. Senior Kelsey Marshall led UM with 13.2 points per contest. Senior Endia Banks and redshirt junior Destiny Harden recorded 10 points each outing and Harden’s 5.1 rebounds per game was also a team-high. “We've had to really play hard this year,” Miami head coach Katie Meier said. “That's what we've been. Nothing was pretty, nothing was easy for Miami this entire year. And we had to really grit it out. It was never easy, but I do think that this team winning eight ACC games and having a .500 record with what we've gone through is remarkable. And I'm really proud.”

‘Noles

CHOPPED Four 'Canes stood out and everyone did their job as Miami knocked off their rivals at home 68-53 The Miami Hurricanes women’s basketball team trailed at halftime by two on February 7. The team decided that the second half would be different. They were not going to lose to rival Florida State on their home court. The 'Canes outscored the ‘Noles 26-12 in the third quarter and never looked back, triumphing 68-53. UM shot 50 percent from the field compared to just 36 percent for FSU. The Seminoles’ 53-point output was the lowest of their season at that point. But the 'Canes struggled from beyond the arc, going just 1-13 from 3-point range. Never fear though, as Miami scored 48 points in the paint and put the contest out of reach well before the final buzzer. A quartet of Hurricanes scored in double figures. Junior Naomi Mbandu led with 16 points, senior Taylor Mason scored 15 and seniors Mykea Gray and Endia Banks added 12 each. Redshirt junior Destiny Harden recorded a game-high 12 rebounds. “It was a great team effort,” Miami head coach Katie Meier said after the game. “They earned it and worked hard and stayed faithful. I’m really proud that we came out against a big rival, didn’t panic and trusted each other.”

STRONG DOWN THE

Stretch

Even after falling in four straight matches midseason, there was no quitting for the men's tennis team The program won five of its next seven team duels and made the NCAA Tournament. An April 8, 4-2 win at rival Florida State marked a signature moment in the Hurricanes late-season run. “Just being able to overcome [obsticles] and go on a streak and win a couple of matches in a row down the stretch definitely has been a confidence booster for the whole team,” senior Bojan Jankulovski told MiamiHurricanes.com. “And if I had to compare the team from February to now, I think we have grown so much as a team in a positive way.” UM fell 4-1 to No. 16 Mississippi State in the NCAA opening round. On the individual side, the Canes were led by senior Spaniard Adria Soriano Barrera, who finished his season as the No. 42 ranked player nationally, Miami’s top singles player and with an appearance in the NCAA Singles Round of 32. “I learned a lot, not going to lie,” Soriano Barrera said through Miami Athletics on his career at UM, both on and off the court. “Starting from being by myself, meeting and adapting to new people. Because when you are home, you are always around the same people and not confronting any new ideas. So, here you have your ups and downs, and you learn how to behave. So, what I think I got the most out of all of it is how to adapt to certain situations and how to understand people better. How to understand myself better.

ONE Phenomenal CAREER When Estela Perez-Somarriba arrived at UM from her native Madrid, she was uncomfortable doing interviews in English. She departed as one of the institution’s most accomplished student-athletes Three trips to the NCAA women’s singles final four, a singles national championship in 2019 and a runner-up finish in 2021, which was made possible by the senior’s career extension allowed by the NCAA’s COVID eligibility relief. Earning her bachelor’s degree in economics and leaving Miami with a graduate degree, her career was total class on and off the court. “Just super, super honored to have been her coach and to be the one that has kind of been by her side for the last five years. I’m so proud of her,” Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said after Perez-Somarriba’s final match. “I’ve learned so much from her.” In a farewell message to the tennis program, athletic department and the school, Perez-Somarriba wrote in an Instagram post: “It has been an honor to represent such a special place and leave my heart every time I stepped out between the lines. UM got all of me. I am blessed to have gained an incredible family and created unforgettable memories that will remain with me forever. I truly can’t thank you enough. College tennis is the best school in life; it teaches determination and teamwork, and through many ups and downs, allows you to reach unimaginable heights. It’s been a dream.” Perez-Somarriba will remain a storied name in the storied Hurricane program forever.

It was their best finish at the Atlantic Coast Conference Rowing Championships in seven years “Today was an important day for Miami rowing and a huge step forward for the program,” head coach Dave Sanderson said through Miami Athletics. “There were many times during the season when we were unsure if we would even have a season, so it is sort of unbelievable that we are here. I am even more proud of the team for having such a good end to the season today given all of the obstacles they had to face this year.” For the first time since the 'Canes became ACC members in 2004, they placed all three varsity boats in the event’s grand final. Marilou Chardin’s efforts on her boat saw the senior claim a spot on the All-ACC second-team. It was an even bigger accomplishment given that the previous spring’s meet wasn’t held due to COVID-19. Taking nothing for granted, UM worked in and out of the water to ensure that they’d not only get a chance to compete, but capture every competitive opportunity. “Getting to this point in the season is a testament to our team staying the course and coming together,” Sanderson said through the athletic department. “We’ve been telling the team all season to be the best version of themselves. Our hope for this weekend is that they each row to the capacity that each individual and boat is capable of, and that they can walk away knowing they gave it their all.”

Elite Eighth (In a Row) For the eighth consecutive season, the women’s golf program was selected to attend the NCAA Tournament. But what happened at the Baton Rouge regional displays why one must treat every moment as their last whenever in any competitive setting After three days of rainy conditions at LSU’s University Club, the organizing committee made the “heart-wrenching” decision to cancel the event in its entirety. Instead of the top-six team finishers advancing further in the NCAA championships, the top six seeded teams and the top three seeded individuals were allowed to automatically qualify, without a ball even being teed. “PLAYABLE BUT NOT AT A CHAMPIONSHIP LEVEL”!!!!! Disgraceful how this whole week has been handled!!!! Every player worked so hard for this week and this is how we are treated!!! SHAMEFUL!!!,” tweeted Miami’s Sara Byrne following the decision. UM freshman and ACC Freshman of the Year Nataliya Guseva subsequently moved on to the individual national championships. But the Canes’ team was denied. Guseva competed through a tough draw at the Scottsdale, Ariz. Event. “Being here certainly means a lot to me; it was my first goal at the beginning of the season,” Guseva said through a Miami Athletics release. “I, of course, wanted to represent the University of Miami with my whole team, but the whole situation that happened in Baton Rouge was a bit crazy. But I am still really happy to be here with my coaches and I just want to represent The 'U' in my best form and fight for the team. When [my teammates] were leaving Miami, they just told me that I have to win this championship. So, I know everyone would be proud of me and, of course, I would be proud of myself.”

On Your (Record)

MARK

Finishing the season at the NCAA Championships, many athletes recorded season, program or personal bests The Miami Hurricanes Track and Field program sending athletes to the NCAA Championships is certain to occur on an annual basis. Senior Kevin Arreaga recorded the program’s season-best mark in the hammer throw, measuring 69.60-meters, which ranked 14th overall nationally. Michelle Atherley and Alfreda Steele each earned first-team All-American honors via their performances at the national championships. Atherley heptathlon mark of 6,067 points was good for second overall while also setting a personalbest 39.74-meter throw in the javelin event, secondbest in program history. Steele meanwhile was top-10 in both the 100-meter and 200-meter dash. Her 11.11-second time in the 100-meter tilt tied an Atlantic Coast Conference record. Atherley earned ACC field performer of the year accolades. “What an amazing way to cap off my final season as a Miami Hurricane,”Atherley said in a Miami Athletics release. “To win this after a year like 2020 solidifies that the sacrifice has been worth it. It also shows how incredible my support has been from coaches and medical staff to friends and family. I am very proud of this award and look forward to representing Miami and the ACC at the Olympic Trials.”

Indoor

INCREDIBILITY From the starting horn to the finish line, Miami’s indoor track and field season was full of highlights, first place finishes and personal bests There was no shortage of action and achievement for Miami’s indoor track and field program in 2021. From its opening meet in Lubbock, Texas, to the NCAA Championships, the Hurricanes could be counted on to reach the top of the podium. Five UM athletes won their respective events at the season-opening Red Raider Invitational on Jan. 23, 2021. Senior Alfreda Steele, senior Kayla Johnson, sophomore Jacious Sears, and freshman Sierra Oliveira took home first place honors on the women’s side, with Steele taking two first place finishes. Sophomore Justin Forde also finish first in the men’s triple jump. Throughout the indoor campaign, the team continued to earn glittering accolades. At the Feb. 13 Tiger Paw Invitational in Clemson, S.C., the men’s relay team of Solomon Strader, Khamal Stewart-Baynes, Ramy Berberena and Oskars Bambals broke a 25-year UM record, running the 4 x 400 relay in 3:08.63. Taylor Wright won the Atlantic Coast Conference women’s high jump event with a 1.79-meter result. In the men’s weight throw, Kevin Arreaga also took gold, with a 21.26-meter mark. Debbie Ajagbe successfully defended her shot-put title with a 16.74-meter throw. Tiara McMinn won in the 60-meter hurdles with an 8.00 time, and the women’s 4 x 400-meter relay team of Lauryn Harris, Moriah Oliveira, Kayla Johnson and Sierra Oliveira finished first with a time of 3:37.35 at the Feb. 27 ACC Championship. Ajagbe finished 12th NCAA Indoor Championships on March 12 in Fayetteville, Ark., and Steele and Tiara McMinn also finished as NCAA finalists. The season was a success, not just based on results, but also given it was on the heels of the coronavirus pandemic. “The emotions are tremendous and then add five months of wondering when you will get to train again, let alone compete,” director of track and field Amy Deem said. “I am very proud of their ability to not lose sight of their goals and train hard each day to return to these championships. Not only were they motivated to return to the NCAAs, but also to not go home empty handed.”

INDOOR TRACK AND FIELD 289


NO TIME for Walking Through consistently high expectations, the Canes finished second in the Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division Winning five of their last seven regular season games, baseball’s strong finish down the stretch put them in great position to make a deep postseason run. And despite an elimination at the NCAA Gainesville regional, the ‘Canes had plenty to take away from the 2021 season. Playing a full season for the first time in two years due to COVID-19, UM competed in a stacked Atlantic Coast Conference, padded further by COVID-related NCAA eligibility relief. Miami brought back a number of contributing upperclassmen as well, including slugger Alex Toral, defensive asset Tony Jenkins and utilityman Raymond Gil. Team MVP Christian Del Castillo broke out in ’21 as well after transferring from Seton Hall, uniting with his younger brother and top MLB draft prospect Adrian. The Hurricanes opened up the season with a bang, beating unanimous preseason No. 1 Florida in a three-game series, coming from behind to win Game 2 and holding on after jumping out to an early lead in Game 3. Miami also notched signature series sweeps over perennial conference powerhouses Clemson, Duke and Louisville. “We’ve been riding the roller coaster a little bit this year and we’ve had our ups-and-downs, but we never quit,” Miami pitcher Jake Garland said after the regular season. “Going into the playoffs, if you can get hot at the right moment and continue that into the ACC tournament with another win, it would be huge for us.”

BASEBALL 291


CHOMPING the Gators Miami rallied after a first game lost to take the series with followup wins from the preseason No. 1 Florida Gators, in their new ballpark. It was first 'Cane series win over UF since 2014 The Hurricanes have been close before, but despite competing in a fierce rivalry with their foes from up north in Gainesville, the Florida Gators were the team to get their way each season. It looked like that trend would continue in 2021. In the brand-new Florida Ballpark’s first ever series, the Gators took the February 19 weekend opener and held an 8-5 lead on Miami in the ninth inning in Game 2, looking to clinch their seventh-consecutive series win against the 'Canes. UM had other ideas. Plating three runs across in the ninth and outlasting Florida through a 13-inning marathon, the Hurricanes proved they belonged on the field with the unanimous preseason No. 1 team. But Miami doesn’t play to prove they merely belong with the best. Winning is always an expectation, no matter the opponent. And they showed that on February 21 in the series finale. Storming out of the games to an 8-0 early lead, the Canes resisted a furious Gator counter-offensive, one out at a time. When infielder CJ Kayfus turned an unassisted double play in the eighth frame and closer Carson Palmquist rose to the pitching mound in the ninth, the final result became inevitable. Sure enough, a spectacular Tony Jenkins catch in center field for the final out ignited an orange and green celebration in Gainesville. “It’s been a long time since we’ve won a series against these guys,” Miami head coach Gino DiMare said after the series. “It’s not easy, they’re good program. A lot of people have gone down to the Gators over the years. “It’s huge to win this series,” catcher Adrian Del Castillo said. “It means a lot to meIt’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing.”

Two days after a home run fiesta in the series opener against Clemson, a sacrifice fly clinched the sweep at Mark Light Field Miami had to pull multiple tricks out of its bag as they swept Clemson at Mark Light Field on the weekend of April 16-18. Friday night’s series opener was a home run derby in Coral Gables, with four Hurricanes combining for five homers. Alex Toral dazzled the home crowd with a monster shot that landed on the five-story Ponce De Leon parking garage’s roof beyond the right field wall. Gabe Rivera, Dominic Pitelli and Raymond Gil also joined in on the fun with their own home runs. Miami won easily, 12-3. “It’s supposed to be normal,” Toral said after the game. “With this lineup, that’s supposed to be normal and something that we’re supposed to go out and repeat day after day. Hopefully, we can continue to do this.” An afternoon after the 'Canes clinched the series an evening early, they were locked in a Game 3 dogfight. Clemson tied the game at two runs and was not going to leave South Florida quietly. While dominance and power defined Miami’s weekend up to Sunday’s series finale, they needed precision and deliberate strategy to scrape across a divisive run. The ninth inning was opened with CJ Kayfus and Pitelli — two defensive standouts — reaching base, setting up veteran Tony Jenkins with one out and two men on. Hitting .111 on the year before the plate appearance, this was Jenkins’ chance to be the hero. Deliver he did. The late-game replacement did fly out to deep center field, but scored Kayfus from third base on a sacrifice to earn the Hurricanes a walk-off win, a sweep they were looking for along with some Mark Light magic. “It was just great to be in that position and that situation at the time and an even better feeling to get that done for the team,” Jenkins said after delivering the winning run. “I’ve just got to stay ready whenever my name gets called and I felt like I did that today. It felt really great celebrating with the guys. Everyone seemed very proud of me and I’m just thankful for my team.”

Between fraternities throwing off-campus parties and cease-functions orders due to disobeying administrative restrictions, the Interfraternity Council succeeded on enusring their organizations and its members had a productive and contributing year in the midst of an experimental year for universities all across the nation. Sophomore Alex Barton expressed how “good men are the building blocks of a strong IFC. In Lambda, we push each other to excel in class, our fraternity, our university, and our community. Even though we were faced with a global situation, I look back at my desision to join Greek Life and can say I am glad I did, and that I am a brother in Lambda Chi Alpha” With virtual fundrasing, taking responsibilty for their actions, and limited in-person cross council philanthropic participation, the IFC has shapped their brothers on overcome situations and become well-equiped leaders for their own future.

continuing our own

LEGACY Overshadowed by fellow councils, the Multicultural Greeks aims to adapt as it continues on their legacy

Known as one of the small Greek councils around campus, the Multicultural Greek Council is determined to continue their presense on campus event though its leaders are graduating seniors. Senior Jarelis Cabrera, council president and president of Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority explained how “it has been challenging, but I think everyone can say it’s kinda brought some people closer together since we would normally meet in physical spaces.” Sinced the sping semester commenced, Cabrera’s one women sorority became a four women sorority- a symbolic gesture of continuing their legacy as our campus’ first Latin sorority and the first Greek organization to establish the Multicultural Greek Counci, and Delta Espsilon Psi Fraternity inducted a new pledge class. Though Sigma Lambda Gamma was not able to induct a pledge class for the following year, the bond all three organizations have will ensure that its legacy will continue and be revived once the baton is passed onto the next generation.

Cultivating the spirit and culture of their founders, these historical Black sororities and fraternities continue upholding the values embedded through their organizations to ensure academic success, standing up to social injustice against within the community, and being true to themselves as leaders in the community. Furthermore, these Greek men and women have demonstrated leadership and academic excellence in and out of the classroom, “I’ve been president for a year and a half. Sometimes it’s a challenge, [but] I really do rely on my resources such as alumni and chapter advising” said Senior Kimberly Overton, fall semester president of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, “the nature of how we operate [while] blending old traditions in a new age of being Greek, figuring out how to merge those things together to make a chapter grow. You have a lot of weight on your shoulders in terms of the legacy of your chapter [and keeping] your organization alive.”

WILD Going against protocols placed by the administartion, half of Greek Life attends parties maskless and catch Coronavirus Despite the administration’s protocols, Greek Life operations were in full swing throughout the academic year. Fraternity parties were a common problem during the fall semester, and some sorority members said the previous lack of consequences has led to an increased party scene this semester. “The administration did nothing last semester. Why wouldn’t they just party more?” said a sorority member who provided recent photos, text messages and first-hand accounts of rampant partying. Actions taken in the fall semester have proven ineffective in deterring Greek Life members from hosting and attending parties, but some members have tried to listen and speak out to no avail. Multiple students who attended these parties had tested positive for the virus. Those that attended said there was not a mask in sight. One Greek member explained why he continues to party, “I pay 50k a year to be here to party,” he said. As a result, four fraternities have been supended and one has offically been closed.

new greeks on the

BLOCK Despite changes around campus, Panhellenic and Interfraternity Council welcome two new organizations

Though Greek life on campus has had an unsetteling turn of events from rising cases to unauthorized fraternity gatherings, all four Greek councils gave a Hurricane welcome Pi Beta Phi sorority and the re-chartering of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity to our campus. Sophomore and Pi Beta Phi executive team member Laney Bloch expressed she “debated the idea of joining a sorority and had decided greek life wasn’t for me, until I found out that Pi Phi was coming to miami. My mom is a Pi Phi, so it seemed a little bit like “fate”.” With both organizations hoping for the best, Pi Phi and TKE seemed to have adjusted in their new homes at Miami in the Panhellenic suite and, with the help of their cross council Greek brothers and sisters, will thrive and represent our insitution to the best of their abilities for many years.

Reviving the acting

Community The Theatre Action Group reignites the acting community with fun events that bring actors together through a year without performances At a time when many student organizations grew discouraged by the inability to host in-person events, the Theatre Action Group (TAG) took the challenge head-on and hosted virtual Mad Libs, Dance TAGs, Secret Valentine, a TAG-talks series, and even a Feeding South Florida Food Drive. “As a first year, I have no experience with what this school was like before COVID. But, even with so many restrictions, TAG was able to accomplish so much this year, and I am so happy I was able to be at the forefront of that!” says Ainsley Western, TAG Freshman Representative & Alumni Liaison. “I have also been able to work with Caleb, our president, to create a new position called Alumni Liaison. As Alumni Liaison, I have worked to create and strengthen our alumni network through events like our new series of TAGTalks—named after TedTalks—which are themed alumni panels highlighting different parts of the performing arts industry. I am indescribably proud to be a member of TAG, and I can't wait to see what we do in the future!” Additionally, TAG has expanded into the virtual platform through their Monthly Action Initiatives. A TAG member takes over the TAG instagram to raise awareness for causes they believe in. “These monthly initiatives have helped the board and our TAG community learn and grow together!” says Kate Reilly, TAG Events Committee Co-Chair. Ultimately, TAG is about creating a platform for artistic expression and the building of a community. TAG’s Big/Little mentorship program at the beginning of the Fall semester allows new students to receive a warm welcome to the TAG community by an experienced upperclassman. “TAG has meant so much to me since joining my freshman year. TAG brings the students of UMiami who love theatre together while also raising money and awareness for important causes. Furthermore, TAG has given me so many amazing memories and some of my best friends!” says Jenna Robinson, BFA MT Sophomore.

Uniting the

Working throughout the election and the year for local liberal candidates and social values Both on-campus and in the nation, the presidential election was on the forefront of everyone’s mind in the Fall semester. Tension grew tangible as November approached, and many were asking questions and seeking essential answers about our socio-political climate. The University of Miami Democrats (UDems) spent the past year hosting a space for these conversations while serving as a civic engagement platform for many curious about politics or already politically engaged. “Being part of UDems has truly been one of the defining experiences of my time at UM, especially during the Nov. 2020 presidential election last semester. Our organization not only grew our membership, but also hosted a multitude of diverse and exciting guest speaks, and fostered discussions on some of the most pressing issues of our time such as climate change and racial injustice.” says Rachel Stempler, the president of UDems. The organization brought in Melba Pearson, Donna Shalala, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Daniella Levine-Cava, and more democratic leaders to provide their perspective on current issues and the presidential election. Members also gained opportunities through UDems to participate in the local elections process. “UDems has provided a terrific civic engagement forum to interact with other like-minded Democrats and become involved in local grassroots politics” says Jason Berkun, director of political outreach. Members celebrated their victories and are looking forward to future semesters in the organization.

Through a busy year the UM College Republicans (UMCR), efforts reached their height around the 2020 Presidential Election. While ultimately, President Donald J. Trump and the conservative party did not win the presidential election, the UMCRs “made huge strides in spreading conservatism on campus this year. We worked hard to flip multiple house seats in South Florida and build upon the immense red wave in Florida” says Andrew Hefley, UMCR President. These results can be seen through the election of Maria Elvira Salazar in the 27th-District, the congressional district for the Coral Gables campus, unseating former UM President Donna Shalala and electing Carlos Giménez to the 26th-District. Sophomore Andrew Hefley believes UMCR also helped build towards a welcoming campus: “We also had the wonderful opportunity to build a more inclusive environment on campus where conservative students need not be afraid to voice their ideas.” Jake Murphy, another member of the Campus Republicans agreed saying, “UMCR was the first club I joined when I transferred to UMiami, and it is an absolute pleasure being part of this organization. It has given me the opportunity to meet friends who share similar interests while also being able to learn from others and I find this to be the most special aspect of UMCRs”.

President and Junior Ajiri Uzere said, “MIRA is an organization dedicated to the exploration of topics from a global lens. We also works to provide information as it relates to future career paths.” Outreach Director and Sophomore Michael MacHarg II said, “this year we started our speaker series in June with Dr. Alveda King, the niece of civil rights leader Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speaking on social justice in America today, and continuing the work of her uncle years later.” Freshman Lison Reese Johnson added, “My experience has been nothing but welcoming and educational. Our whole E-board genuinely cares about each individual as well as making MIRA the best experience possible for everyone. My favorite part has been the amazing opportunities, I have listened to distinguished speakers with real experience in the IR field that I never would have otherwise heard from. It has made me feel more connected to my campus during these difficult times.”

Science

Publishing research stories at the front line of new innovation in local labs both on and off campus Sparking curiosity and passion for science in students from different fields across multiple disciplines in the Coral Gables campus, Miller School of Medicine, and Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences is the role of UMiami Scientifica Magazine. The team worked on their fall issue, which covered the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on vulnerable populations, as well as other stories covering advances in space travel and coral reef protection. Senior Editor-in-Chief Anuj Shah said, “my time as editor came duing a tumultuous period in our country’s history, one in which science was disputed more than ever.” The winter issue, featured stories on the race to develop and distribute a vaccine against COVID-19, and public health-centered articles and infographics about the Coronavirus and other topics. Art Director Megan Buras said, “there has never been a more important time to make science and information accessible to the public. Working through the pandemic was challenging, but the dedication of the staff has been incredibly inspiring! I can’t wait to see how we continue to grow in the future.”

WHO THEY ARE Founded on January 10, 1899, Tau Kappa Epsilon is one of the largest collegiate men’s social fraternities in North America with over 291,000 initiated members and 225 active chapters and colonies. TKE’s mission is to aid men in their mental, moral and social development for life.

WHAT IT TAKES Tau Kappa Epsilon was founded on January 10th, 1899, on the two most basic principles that have guided our Fraternity for the last 120 years: We are the only Fraternity to have never had an exclusionary clause—meaning that even in 1899, only your character is what mattered—not race, religion, culture or socio-economic status. Our brotherhood and our uniqueness stem from the idea that what makes TKE strong are the individuals that make up our colonies, chapters, and alumni associations across the country. We do not ask you to change; individualism is KEY. There is no “ideal TKE man” because that is YOU.

Rho Lambda, the National Sorority Leadership Recognition Society, was founded at the University of Miami as a local group in 1962 under Dean Louise P. Mills. In 1974, Rho Lambda received permission from the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) to become a national organization. Rho Lambda subsequently applied to the Federal Government for a Title IX exemption to maintain its single sex status. After receiving this exception, the University of Miami Chapter corresponded with Panhellenic associations across the country in hopes of sparking interest. In 1998, Rho Lambda began admitting all sorority women based upon minimum requirements; hence, membership was not limited to only members of the NPC organization.

The Greek letters RHO LAMBDA stand for PANHELLENIC LEADERSHIP, respectively. Those who are leaders light a torch in the darkness for others to follow, and the flame is the symbol of Rho Lambda. The purpose of Rho Lambda is to honor those women within the sorority community who have exhibited the highest qualities of leadership and service to their Greek community and their sorority. They are women who have furthered the ideals and principles of the Greek community throughout their years of sorority affiliation.

Proudest Accomplishment I am most proud of becoming the Student Government President and leading an organization of 220+ dynamic and amazing student leaders. What's one thing you've gained from being a 'Cane? I used to be an introvert trapped in my shell. However, with the experiences and leadership skills I obtained, I have become a great communicator who loves to work collaboratively on projects to the benefit of those around me.

What will you miss most about UM? I will definitely miss the Rat the most. The vibes were truly immaculate.

Proudest Accomplishment As President of the American Society of Pre-Dental Students I established an annual Hurricane Dental Drive to benefit the Lotus House and Miami Rescue Mission and I initiated a partnership between the organization and Caring for Miami Project Smile! What's one thing you've gained from being a 'Cane? UM has fueled my passion for service, increased my cultural awareness, enhanced my knowledge about different social justice issues and overall has just developed me into a kinder, braver and more compassionate person.

DAVE DOWNEY From Miami, Florida Majors in Meteorology & Broadcast Journalism

CLAUDIA FERNANDEZ PEREZ From Madrid, Spain

Proudest Accomplishment Becoming a distinguished member of UMTV, and using that experience to set myself apart from many others across the country in the competitive broadcast field. What's One Thing You've Gained Grom Being A 'Cane? It has instilled me with a drive and work ethic that I did not think was possible after graduating high school. Students and faculty alike have pushed me to become better in and out of the studio or classroom every day, and that’s what really matters when it comes to a college education.

What will you miss most about UM? The short answer: everything.

Majors in Neuroscience & Biochemistry and Molecular Biology What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? I am a certified tutor for science and language classes and have been a mentor for first year pre-health students, continuing this mentoring relationship beyond the program. Teaching others is a very rewarding experience that helps strengthen and embrace my own knowledge. Teaching and mentoring other students, has allowed me to develop the skills necessary to become a great leader. Being able to motivate and guide others towards a common goal, while still taking an interest in each person, has led others to trust me, practices that I will embrace for the rest of my life.


RANDY FITZGERALD

SHIRLEY GELMAN

From Melbourne, Florida

From St. Louis, Missouri

Majors in Economics, History, International Studies, & Political Science

Majors in International Finance, Marketing, & Management

Proudest Accomplishment I had an incredible study abroad experience in the United Kingdom on a program of study in British Politics & Policy that brought me to Oxford, I interned at the White House for the President, and I was elected by my fellow ‘Canes all four undergrad years to represent them in Student Government- I even got elected to the executive board!

What Will You Miss Most About UM? I would have missed it too much, so I’ve decided to stay for Law School! I will miss the professors who I’ve been able to build such great relationships with over the past four years! What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? We are a ‘Canes family, and ‘Canes care for ‘Canes.

Proudest Accomplishment This unprecedented year has been an impactful one for my growth as a leader. As both the Vice President of Student Government and the Vice President of Membership for Delta Delta Delta, I had to navigate a whole new normal because of the COVID-19 pandemic. As Vice President of Student Government, a week after I was elected, I was thrown into handling COVID-19. Everything was virtual and I needed to disseminate new University policies to the University of Miami community. During monthly meetings with Dr. Whitley and semesterly meetings with President Frenk, I gave my opinions and expressed my concerns as a student leader, and let the UM community know what was happening.

Majors in Biomedical Engineering

Proudest Accomplishment I am most proud of serving as the Chair of COPE, the peer educator group partnered with the Counseling Center. It has been extremely challenging to reinvent outreach to deliver meaningful education and resources to the UM community solely from virtual platforms. What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? UM has shaped me into a person who has coincidence in myself, a passion for helping others and changing the world, and a well-rounded and well informed person. On campus UM has helped me connect with my peers who have helped me accept me for who I am, has allowed me to accept and share my sexuality, and my path in the helping careers, and showed me my love of service.

What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? UM has made it safe for me to take risks. From developing 3D printed COVID-19 swabs during the pandemic, to leading the largest service day on campus, to continuing my violin studies despite being a biomedical engineering major; UM has given me a taste for what’s possible when I step outside my comfort zone.

Proudest Accomplishment Launching What Matters To U, the largest speaking series on campus along side my peers in Student Government.

What Will You Miss Most About UM? I’m going to miss the people the most. Although this campus is incredibly beautiful, without my friends and mentors, it would be an empty - albeit pretty - shell.

From Palm Coast, Florida

From Eugene, Oregon

Major in Exercise Physiology

Majors in Africana Studies, Political Science, Sociology and Criminology

What Will You Miss Most About UM? It seems like yesterday I was just a freshman living in Stanford, and now time has passed by. I will missall the fun activities and events (also the free stuff everyday) like Cat 5 and Canes Night Live. I will alsomiss going to games and having the time of my life. Getting free food almost everyday, because something is always happening on on-campus, like Pancakes with Pat. Homecoming season, food truck with food vouchers, and all the fun activities the homecoming committee creates. From Drake to being on campus to Michelle Obama to Gabrielle Union to Sylvester Stallone! I will miss being a young adult with little responsibilities that were just going to class, housing application done before the deadline, not using all my dining dollars in just one semester, etc.

What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? My arrival to UM as a freshman was anything but typical. About a month before leaving Oregon, I received an email requesting that I participate in a video project representing the university’s incoming freshman class. Gladly participating, the project resulted in a video whose central message was on making an impact throughout our campus community and in making those trailblazers who had come before you proud through your continuation of their pursuits of progress: “Make an impact” would become a guiding mantra for the remainder of my time at UM. Pursuit of making this impact propelled me to many of the wonderful involvements that I participated in during my first year at UM. Across campus I became heavily involved in each and every opportunity that I could find.

JORDAN RHODES

ROBERT SHORE

From Deerfield Beach, Florida

From Charlotte, North Carolina

Juris Doctor in Law

Majors in Economics, Chinese Studies and Political Science

Proudest Accomplishment I am most proud of my time as the Student Bar Association President and the Student Trustee of the University of Miami Board of Trustees. Through these roles, I have tried to encourage conversations around race and social justice to improve our UM and Miami community.

What Will You Miss Most About UM? I will miss the beautiful campus, dedicated faculty and overall committed ‘Canes community. As a South Florida native, I was raised a Miami Hurricanes fan, and from a young age it was my dream to attend The ‘U.’ Achieving that by attending the law school has been such a rewarding experience and I will truly miss all the time I have spent here.

What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? I truly believe that UM has given me more opportunities to pursue my interests and chart my own path than I would have been afforded at any other institution in the country, and perhaps the world. I’ve been involved with organizations as local as the Lowe Art Museum, and as large-scale as interning for the federal government. With the generosity of the Stamps Scholarship, my education has literally taken me around the world multiple times. My ability to speak a foreign language went from struggling to order noodles at a Chinese restaurant to now qualifying to attend graduate school in China, in Chinese. This Spring I’ll be graduating with three majors, a feat likely impossible at any other institution, but possible here because the university allowed me to make my education entirely my own.


ALLEGRA TURNER

REBECCA VANARNAM

From Newton, Massachusetts

From Audubon, New Jersey

Major in Gender & Sexuality Studies

Majors in Marine Science, Biology and Spanish

Proudest Accomplishment I most proud of my time as chair of the Greek Week Executive Board. I applied to the position coming off the heals of the study abroad semester cut short by a worldwide pandemic, so I was anxious to find experiences to fill that void. Unbeknownst to me, I would spend the next two semesters planning ande xecuting the Week remotely, as I took classes online from Boston. It was definitely a challenge, especially with the need to redesign the week for the virtual, “new normal” world, but I am so proud ofmyself and my executive board for pulling it all off. Working with administrators and our philanthropy Active Minds we were able to pull off a great event for a Greek community that I care so deeply about.

Proudest Accomplishment I am most proud of the friendships and connections I have made with students and faculty at UM and hope to keep in contact with all of those connections in the future. I felt that I involved myself greatly within the community and I couldn’t have asked for a better 4 years.

What Will You Miss Most About UM? I will miss the opportunities and people that UM has provided me, especially the RSMAS community. What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? UM has given me strength and courage to use my voice and guide me to make a difference. UM has shown me my true capabilities as a woman in science.

Proudest Accomplishment I used what I learned in UM to create my own high-quality, specialty tea brand that has an emphasis on gratitude. It is called Ta Tea, Ta means “thank you” in Old English, We believe that that having a cup of tea is the perfect moment to be present, and grateful. What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? UM has shown me that in the right community and space, people are willing and able to cheer you on. I have learned that the right team is invaluable to your success and happiness.

What Will You Miss Most About UM? The uber supportive faculty and professors who truly care about your success both inside the classroom and out.

What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? UM has shaped me from the ground up. UM has provided me with the building blocks for busines ssuccess. Every time I turned the corner there was another opportunity to sample or mentor to lean on. From freshman year when I sought out and embarked on a research project, working with Dr. Espinosa, Dr Shipiro’s mentorship, Beaumont Carlin prep, my investment banking internship during school, experiences in Hyperion, the trip to NYC with Bermont Carlin, through former UM grads mentoring you in my interview process at BCG. I have been able to sample experiences that have enhanced my career growth and broaded my interests and fields of study. The opportunity to lead UM student managed investment fund as CIO has shaped my career desires moving forward and has taught me about leadership.

Major in Philosophy, Politics and Economics

Proudest Accomplishment Uplifting the greater Miami community with Omega Psi Phi’s biweekly chapter food drives through Feeding America. What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? UM has built my confidence and given me the skills to enter the real world. I am a more positive person now.

What Will You Miss Most About UM? The countless friends I am used to seeing every day.

What Are You Most Looking Forward To? Translating the leadership and soft skills I’ve gained at the ‘U’ into a fruitful career of helping peoplea chieve financial independence.

Proudest Accomplishment I created my own major called PPE. I took PPE at the University of Oxford, and brought it to UM. Taking the opportunity given by the university to create my own major, successfully designing my independent major, and graduating a full year early is my proudest accomplishment. What's One Thing You've Gained From Being A 'Cane? My background in philosophy, international politics and economics has allowed me to be open-minded and have a more creative approach to philosophical thinking and law-making. Since the space law and policy sector is fairly new, there still are a lot of unknowns. My life hitherto, combined with my education and experiences, guide me in the right direction by helping me architect my own path in the space law and policy sector.

Conclusions

Through a year truly unlike any other the ‘Cane community perservered and came out stronger and more connected

The University of Miami is made up of so many different experiences. From the campus life of food trucks and restaurants to the various campuses, students can never get uninterested. This private university is made up organizations that are changing the daily lives of students, Greek life that introduces new walks of life, and talented athletes that continue to break records.

Thank you to my parents and sister for being my first inspiration; the friends who walked alongside me in this journey; the peers and communities who forced me out of my shell; my professors and research mentors for challenging me in the pursuit of knowledge and never letting me settle for less; and above all, to God for His abundance and for entering this mess with me. In the midst of so much uncertainty in these “unprecedented times”, I can trust the story because I know the Author.

M’LYNN MUSGROVE Dear M’Lynn, What a crazy ride the last four years have been! Freshman year brought the Hurricane Irma evacuation. It took 3 days, 2 planes, a car, a bus, and 2 1/2 hours in a limo to get home! Now an experienced ‘Cane, you just hunkered down when the next hurricane hit your Sophomore year. Junior year brought Covid-19 and another evacuation, but this time from London during your semester abroad. Leaving London was devastating and disappointing, but you made the best of it. Your Senior year, as President of Cat5 Music, with most live performances cancelled, classes online and masks mandatory, you persevered and finished strong with a Bachelor of Music in M.A.D.E and a minor in Bruce Hornsby’s Creative American Music Program. Your future is bright M’Lynn! We are so proud of you! Special thanks to FROST and Dan Strange! Never forget to follow your dreams! Love Mom, Dad, and Madison

My family (parents siblings, close friends and mentors), are my village. It’s is my hope that my struggles, perseverance, and successes have created a legacy of hope and community action through self-education. I did it for us!

DYLAN KOSSAR Dylan - what can I say except that I could not be more proud of you and the woman you have become. I love and admire you more than you will ever know. So as you graduate from this amazing university and embark on a new adventure now, here are a few of my favorite quotes to put it all into perspective. I’ll start with my favorite - as you know. “Life is a journey, not a destination.” Ralph Waldo Emerson...but also.... “Every end is a beginning.” Ralph Waldo Emerson. How about.... “We didn’t know we were making memories. We just knew we were having fun.” Winnie the Pooh, A.A.Milne And finally - when you think about leaving here and you may get sad and miss these days - just remember.... “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” Winnie the Pooh, A.A.Milne With that - my honey - I love you to the moon and back - forever - Mama


ABIGAIL PODOLSKY I have loved my time at Miami because of the people I’ve met and the creative opportunities this city has. Go Canes!

LAUREN MOKHTARZADEH Thank you for all of your hard work with Distraction. Congrats on your graduation!

FROM THE EDITOR The 2021 Ibis Yearbook was constructed by an unbelievably dedicated team of staffers who overcame the many struggles and setbacks of the pandemic producing a historical and unique yearbook. We persevered together and worked around the clock ensuring the production of a thoughtful and inclusive yearbook. It would not have been possible for me to lead this incredible staff without the help, guidance, and advice of my family, teachers, and close friends. I am very appreciative of their mentorship and willingness to help me grow as a leader. I offer my sincere gratitude to all those at the University of Miami who answered our ceaseless emails and assisted us in the collection of content throughout the struggles of remote work. Particularly those in the UM Communications office and JC Ridley who supplied critical photographs when we needed them for a spread. Finally my most humble thanks to Professor Stano, the Student Board of Publications and those at Balfour I am eternally grateful for your crucial role in the completion of the Ibis. Invariably and selflessly available to our staff providing key guidance and acting as the glue which binds our book together. I hope that every member of the University of Miami community looks back at this book later in life and enjoys a catalog of memories from their time at the ‘U’ with a smile. The yearbook is after all student publication, created for the student body. I am beyond honored to have served as your Editor-in-Chief.

STAFF & LETTER FROM THE EDITOR 473


LAKESIDE VIEWS Lakeside Village is the newest structure around Lake Osceola having opened in August 2020. Lake Osceola was excivated in 1947 and the soil was used to create the Rickenbacker Causeway to Virgina Key. Photo by TJ Lievonen


Sunny Days Sitting on the steps of Lake Osceola on days filled with sunshine and warmth is a time honored campus tradition Your final days on the steps of Lake Osceola may be overwhelming for some. These steps are where many students started their journey as a Hurricane, a lake that is central to anywhere you needed to go on campus. This is where students performed at Lakeside Jams and where hundreds of current and former Hurricanes and their families gathered with their friends to celebrate the Miami Hurricanes football team. Who can forget when Drake stopped by to perform on top of the Shalala building? Don’t let these memories make you sad, cherish them for the years to come.

Night Fall

Evenings on campus are often quiet as students explore the nightlife of Miami and prepare for the next days classes As you take your final steps on campus, remember that this is not the ending of your Hurricane legacy. Reflect your first steps onto this beautiful campus. How nervous you were for this new experience, but how excited you were for all of the new beginnings that were about to take place. Think of all the gamedays, the Miami nightlife, the Boat Burning Ceremonies, the homecoming concerts and countless other campus activities over the past years. Think of all the people you met. You are not just leaving with friends, you are leaving with a family. Once a ‘Cane, always a ‘Cane.

Final Walk

Commencment marks the last steps ‘Cane students take, as they enter the professional world embarking on new adventures Congratulation ‘Cane, you did it! You came, you saw and you conquered! These last couple of years have been a wild ride for everyone. You battled hurricanes and the horrible COVID-19 pandemic and came out on top. You proved that you are as strong as hurricane and deserved to be a ‘Cane. None of these events stopped you from achieving your dreams and now you are one step closer to your future. Stay in contact with your peers and remember you always have a home in sunny Coral Gables.

GOODBYES Many students refer to the ‘U’ as their easiest hello and their hardest goobye, because it truly becomes a second home after so readily welcoming students to campus for four years. Photo courtesy of UM Communications
