Masked and (Not-So) Dangerous

By Molly Monson

On the faces of friends, discarded in the street, on the gear shift in your car, and in crevices of your backpack, masks are a part of our daily lives in a coronavirus world. Miami University mandated at the beginning of October that masks are now required everywhere-- in the classrooms, in the dorm common areas, and even outside on campus. Yes, masks can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. But shouldn’t lovers of fashion rejoice? A new, in-your-face (or would it be “on your face”?)  way to express yourself that you get to wear every day? Masks also offer anonymity, something I personally love whenever I’m trekking through campus on my way to an 8:30. And, since it seems we will be wearing these for quite some time, let’s make sure they’re cute.
