Priya Mehta ’13

Diplomacy and Global Politics Major
History Minor

As a pre-law student in a liberal arts program, you might expect that Priya Mehta spent most of her time at Miami buried in books. But that is far from the case.

Her junior year, Priya studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain. She’s a member of Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed service fraternity at Miami, and she participated in Miami’s Urban Leadership Program in Cleveland, Ohio. In Cleveland, she worked with Nepali and Burmese immigrants and refugees, helping them practice their English and adjust to life in the U.S. She also worked with a group of Mexican exchange students working to improve their hometowns.

Before graduating from Miami, Priya became a Fulbright Scholar finalist and was accepted to several prominent law schools. But after graduation, she instead chose to participate in Teach for America, to pass on some of the lessons she learned from her professors at Miami. Someday, she plans to attend law school and spend her life fighting for international justice.

Animaesh Manglik ’18

Music Performance Major
Arts Management; Ethics, Society, and Culture Minors

Animaesh Manglik chose Miami for its combination of the outstanding music program and the well-rounded college experience it offered. As a high school student, he knew he wanted to go to music school but didn’t want to attend a conservatory. Animaesh wanted a broader college experience in which he could expand his interests beyond music and have more opportunities to get involved.

That is exactly what Animaesh achieved by choosing Miami. In addition to his major in Music Performance, he is pursuing minors in both Arts Management and Ethics. While Animaesh dreams of a performance career, he has also entertained the idea of attending law school with a focus in corporate or entertainment law.

In his spare time, Animaesh enjoys singing in the Men’s Glee Club and serves as the director for Soul2Soul, one of several a capella groups at Miami. He never thought he would enjoy teaching music, but his role as director of Soul2Soul has opened his eyes to new avenues for sharing it with others. He is also a member of the Phi Kappa Pi social fraternity.

Mamie Hobbs ’13

Education Major

Miami is such an idyllic place that most students never want to leave. So when education major Mamie Hobbs decided to spend a semester living and teaching in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, some people didn’t understand. Why the move? Why not commute from fun, charming Oxford?

But Mamie knew that participating in Miami’s Urban Teaching Cohort was important — for her own education and for her future students. For an entire semester, Mamie lived (along with ten other Miami students) in an apartment in Over-the-Rhine. There, as a student-teacher, she lived in the same neighborhood as her students and learned first-hand about the challenges their community faced.

Mamie says that her Over-the-Rhine experience taught her that good teaching requires you to earn your students’ trust. That trust is the foundation for helping any student learn. Now, her goal is to spend her career teaching in an urban environment, helping underprivileged students trust her and, most importantly, believe in themselves.

Alhaji Bah ’14

Mechanical Engineering Major

Mechanical engineering major Alhaji Bah spent a lot of time on his studies. But certainly not all of it. He was an RA, he participated in the Lockheed Martin Leadership Institute, and he even brought a new student organization to Miami — the National Society of Black Engineers.

Alhaji wasn't afraid of hard work. Take, for example, his choice of favorite professor: without hesitation he attested that the professor he most appreciated was the one who challenged him the most. That commitment to hard work meant that even among leadership students in the Lockheed Martin Leadership Institute, Alhaji took the helm, coordinating a week-long National Engineering Week on campus.

At Miami, Alhaji learned to lead — even among a team of students dedicated to leadership. Because at Miami, he said, he gained book smarts and people smarts. He learned to solve problems and work as a team. And that is a combination for success.

Esther Lapido ’17

Finance Major
Social Entrepreneurship,
Black World Studies Minors

Esther Ladipo’s favorite part of her experience at Miami has been the incredible opportunities that she’s been given. The ability to combine seemingly unrelated disciplines of study (paired with her study abroad experiences and mentorship from Miami alumni) has given Esther a new view of the world with which she has developed passions and a sense of confidence that are fueling her success.

It wasn’t until she studied abroad in Southeast Asia with the Farmer School of Business that she realized “how big the world actually is and how one person and one idea can make a difference in people’s lives.” After working with entrepreneurs in Cambodia, Esther returned to Oxford with a new mindset and declared a minor in (Social) Entrepreneurship.

As a part of her Black World Studies minor, Esther also studied abroad in Cuba. During this experience, she completed an independent study on women’s perceptions of beauty and the influences of commercialization on these perceptions.

In addition to her study abroad experiences, Esther also benefited from the vast network of successful Miami alumni. Through her involvement with the Multicultural Business Association on campus, she met Miami alum Nick House, who has worked for both Ernst and Young and Procter and Gamble. Nick quickly became a mentor of Esther’s and recommended her for a competitive internship with Ernst and Young. Esther landed the internship with the accounting powerhouse the summer prior to her sophomore year in its audit department.

Icon of people conversing with speech bubbles over their heads

In reflecting on her success, Esther is not shy about giving credit where credit is due.

“If I was not at Miami, I would not have been able to go to Southeast Asia. I would not have been able to conduct a research project in Cuba. I think my experiences at Miami have made me a better person, and it has really prepared me for what the real world is going to be. I consider myself a better leader because of my experiences at Miami. I consider myself someone that is not afraid of being uncomfortable because of my experiences at Miami. I’ve gone through so much and been awarded so many opportunities that the world can be mine – there’s nothing that I can’t achieve if I work hard. The number one thing that I’ve learned at Miami is that there’s little replacement for hard work.”

Michaela McKenny ’09

Digital Director at rag & bone
Graphic Design Major
Marketing Minor

As a student at Miami, Michaela McKenny majored in graphic design. But her major wasn’t her only creative outlet. She served as art director for Edun Live on Campus, a socially conscious apparel business run by students at Miami. She spent a summer studying branding and interdisciplinary design in Florence, Italy. And she participated in the Miami Club of Fashion Design and Merchandising, a club she continues to support as an alum.

She also interned in several different areas of design. She worked at an interactive agency in Oxford, at a branding agency in Chicago, and at InStyle Magazine in New York City. And getting lots of different experiences helped her find her niche in the design world.

After graduation, Michaela moved to New York City, where she landed a graphic design job in the fashion industry. Now, a few years later, she has such noteworthy designers as Diane von Furstenberg and Oscar de la Renta on her résumé. Michaela says Miami prepared her well for her career, because it taught her to work hard. And that, she says, sets you on the path to success.

His freshman year at Miami, E.J. Corporan lived in the Change: Emerging Leaders Living-Learning Community. He chose the experience because he’s passionate about leadership, and wanted to be around others with similar interests. Now he says he can’t imagine Miami without that experience.

As a member of the Emerging Leaders community, E.J. became a volunteer, an advocate, and a leader on campus. He volunteered at events in Oxford and beyond, coordinated Help Week, and became an active advocate for change at Miami.

By senior year, E.J. became Executive Chair of the Campus Activities Council, and worked daily to make Miami a better place. After graduation, E.J. got a job as a Customer Engagement Coordinator for Cessna Aircraft Company in Wichita, Kansas.

As a senior, Kat lives off campus in Uptown Oxford. She loves all the unique off-campus houses, but particularly the big, bright, orange one she calls home. Each house has a personality and a name—be it Orange Crush, Cornered In, or Krazy Eights—and it’s all part of what makes Miami unique.

Uptown also has shopping, coffee shops, and restaurants aplenty. And as a part-time DJ and a full-time music lover, Kat visits Uptown establishments often to see the many musical artists who come to play in Oxford.

Political Science Major
History Minor
President of the Student Body

While running for president of the student body at Miami, Charlie Schreiber and his running-mate Courtney made a point to interact with every single one of Miami’s more than 475 student organizations. No small task. But they did it.

During his term as president, Charlie fought to give students more access to their student leaders. He held open forums and advocated for dedicated student space. As president, Charlie participated in the opening of the stunning new Armstrong Student Center. The building stands at the heart of student life at Miami—it houses gathering areas, places to eat, quiet study rooms, event spaces, an expansive theater, and offices for student organizations. The breathtaking space is also home to a new office for student government, which enabled Charlie and Courtney to continue meeting with students throughout their presidential term. Now, in one of the most beautiful student centers on any college campus, Charlie’s efforts toward a more accessible student government are set (literally) in stone.

Equipped with the leadership skills he gained at Miami, Charlie is now heading off to law school. Someday, he hopes to run for public office—and when he does, he’ll take with him the lessons he learned holding a presidential office at Miami.

At the age of 18, Sean Kuraly was drafted in the NHL as a fifth round pick by the San Jose Sharks. But rather than pursuing professional hockey right away, he chose to attend Miami and get a strong academic foundation (while also bringing his athletic talent to the ice).

As a RedHawk, Sean’s athletic success had not abated. He was named to the 2013 U.S. National Junior Team and helped the U.S. win gold at the International Ice Hockey Federation’s World Junior Championships in Russia. And his freshman year, he helped Miami win the Central Collegiate Hockey Association Championships.

Sean loved playing hockey at Miami. Specifically, on home ice. He loved it because of the fans. Their enthusiasm and excitement made Goggin Ice Center one of the best hockey venues anywhere. And on the ice or off, Sean said the people he’s met at Miami will undoubtedly be friends for life.

Elliott and Stoddard Halls

Residence halls Elliot and Stoddard are the two oldest remaining buildings on the Miami campus.

their fraternities.

50 Cent.

Our campus bookstore is housed in the Shriver Center, which was our main student center before Armstrong Student Center was built. Now Shriver is where you go for food, events, meetings with your clubs, or to purchase Miami books and gear.

South Quad
