Spartans happily yet laboriously spent four long days crafting positions at the Model United Nations conference hosted by Princeton University in the East Brunswick Hilton conference center in New Jersey. Joining a few hundred others from top schools, mostly from the east coast, our Spartans represented Iceland and Jamaica. From Thursday to Sunday, MCDS delegates researched, debated, allied with other countries, wrote extensive position papers and resolutions in their respective committee groups, all while learning how to solve difficult crises around the world. They also got to spend a day on campus at Princeton. This year, not only were these Miamiams surprised with snow that fell hours after arriving, but were rewarded with some great accolades as well. Senior delegate Abbey Tomkinson was awarded best position paper from her committee — NATO.
