Hi there,
November means that one of our favorite weeks at Miami is approaching quickly: International Education Week (IEW). This year, IEW takes place from November 14-November 22 and it brings a breadth of liveliness, culture, and celebration to Miami's campus in Oxford, Ohio. This is Miami's 6th year participating in the initiative developed by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.
Whether you're a current student, alum, or anything between, there's a way for all members of the Miami community to get involved!

Did you know these fun facts about Amy?

  • I love national parks and I went to New Mexico in October almost entirely so I could visit White Sands National Monument and go sledding in the sand.  (Look it up, it’s a thing!)
  • I have two nephews who I love more than life, Wyatt and Weston. Yes, their names have a theme. My brother and sister-in-law are in denial.
  • I have no artistic ability but I love art. One of my favorite small museums in the world is the Rodin Museum in Paris—I love how his sculptures evoke emotions and movement. 
  • I make too many unhealthy food choices but the one I’m known for would be polar pops from the Marathon station at Spring and Locust. Sohi also knows me really well.
  • One of the things I’m most proud of is being a first generation college student.  My family didn’t have the financial means so I’m proud that my younger brother and I broke that barrier.  
  • My favorite city in the world that I’ve visited so far is Hong Kong because of how it combines a really urban environment with the amenities of beaches and mountains just a short metro ride away. And the gorgeous skyline. 
  • I’m known for my love of Christmas trees. For that reason a group of friends broke into my college dorm room and set up a Christmas tree. In October. It was great. It was also my first item I “splurged” on when I started my first full-time job after graduate school.  Not, you know, a couch. I still have that tree so purchase well made.
  • When I was very young, my mom brought my brother and I on a spontaneous weekend trip to Houston Woods Lodge for vacation. I have very vague memories of riding ponies, swimming, and coming to Oxford to shop. Little did I know that I would make it my home around two decades later.

MUDEC gives Miami students internships

In August, Alec Hoelker was packing his bags, facing the unknown that comes with spending a semester abroad. In September he was wearing a press badge and taking pictures of the Grand Duke and ambassadors at the official 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Luxembourg. How did this happen? MUDEC happened.
