Capturing the Last of Summer

By: Holly Flaig

Welcome back to Oxford, Miami students! Whether Oxford is a new or familiar place to you, it must be exciting to be here. However, between the excitement of this new time and its accompanying anxieties, it can sometimes be difficult to find space to breathe. This weekend, I took some time to find spots that provide a serene space where you can hit the reset button and take a moment to be still. Here is a series of photos I’ve collected while exploring natural areas in and around Oxford– and if possible, I’d encourage anyone to take a moment of your spare time to find some calm in the abundant nature around campus!

Happy first day of in-person classes!

GreenHawks Media

GreenHawks Media is Miami University’s first environmental publication. Our goal is to unite green initiatives on campus and in the community. We hope to make a difference in a journalistic fashion by spreading news and information as well as educating our readers. We would like to present GreenHawks Media as a central place for groups and individuals to share their ideas, concerns, and initiatives. Individually and in small groups, efforts are made to make a difference and promote change. While one person may have a concern, another is researching it and needs assistance. While one initiative is being made in a science department, a similar idea is being discussed in a local business. GreenHawks Media provides the opportunity for shared visions to come together. We are journalists, writers, photographers, and scientists. We are students. We are motivated to use media to contribute to the change that our generation needs to make in order to protect and understand the planet we call home.
