Michelle Obama knows a thing or two about elections...

But this election cycle, she won't tell you who to vote for. She just wants you to vote!

The former first lady spoke at the Watsco Center Friday as part of a When We All Vote event. In addition to a star-studded lineup featuring former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland, gospel singer Erica Campbell and “Key & Peele” star Keegan-Michael Key, Obama urged students and the community to vote in the upcoming November election.

Voting can be frustrating, sure. But Obama said we should do it anyway, putting the election in terms we can all understand: “You wouldn’t give your crazy uncle the power to post a picture to your Instagram feed, so why would you give a stranger the power to make far more important decisions in your life?”

Students responded to her message... and her fashion choices. For sophomore Anastasia Cafatti, Obama's simple jeans and a T-shirt made a point that "we are all people, and every single one of us is important, therefore every vote matters.” 

Every vote does matter, so be sure to get registered before the Oct. 9 deadline. You can start here.

One for the books. Thursday's home-game victory against the Tar Heels was more than a thrilling winit tied up a record set way back in 2000, the last time Miami scored three defensive touchdowns. Sports Editor Josh White has the full story.

Up in smoke.
A stiffer campus smoking policy, which encompasses e-cig users, too, has students reflecting on smoking's societal impact, including the younger generation.

"We need to provide better guidance and support for young kids so they don’t feel like they have to turn to a substance for relief," writes columnist Nicole Macias. "We need to take a look at ourselves as a society, and rectify what we glamorize and who we idolize before we can truly lead our youth in a more prosperous direction."
