The University of Miami student body has a rich tradition of publishing, including Tempo, a magazine that was published from October 1949 to April 1971. It features articles written by student journalists about University of Miami events, activities, trends, and personalities, as well as pictures by several ex-GI photographers. The most well-known student advisor for the publication was Wilson Hicks, former executive editor of Life magazine and pioneer in photojournalism, who joined the faculty of the University in June 1955.
Tempo is one of the many award-winning publications from the University of Miami, and was honored by Sigma Delta Chi as the nation's top rated college magazine for four consecutive years in 1950, 1951, 1952, and 1953.[i] Other University publications that have won impressive honors in collegiate journalism include The Miami Hurricane, the official newspaper of the student body started in 1926 as University News, and the Ibis yearbook, which has been published since 1927.
