The “My Favorite Buckeye Things” campaign ended June 30th. Really reflecting on what my favorite parts of Ohio State were reinforced my desire to be engaged and involved on campus, but hopefully, it also offered others a more in-depth glance at what Ohio State is really all about.
The union: where students make a true impact, form lifelong friendships, and bring pride to the university. It truly is our home away from home #myfavoritebuckeyethings #day24

Alright rising high school seniors, this post is for you!
Solve for “y”!
I’ll give you a few minutes.
I feel like I’m still waiting on you to solve this problem!
Ok, so I don’t actually want you to solve for “y”, but for “Why”.

Welcome to the latest installment of Adventures in Recruiting! This is the fourth episode so I guess it’s time to talk about a new hope!
And what do I mean by that statement? Starting the recruitment cycle for the autumn 2015 (Au15) class! Woo!
Monday (June 9th) is what I am going to consider the official start of the new recruitment cycle for the other recruiters on staff and me. The reason I consider Monday the official start is that we (recruiters at OSU) will be sending out introduction e-mails to prospective students in our territories. So, if you’re going to be a high school senior and you live in the Pittsburgh, PA area you might receive an e-mail from me (or if you live somewhere else someone on my staff)!

I’ve been spending some time reading the First Things First Blog, which is currently being written by my friends, the Orientation Leaders, and while they’re orienting the newest Buckeyes to campus, I’ve been busy at my first internship!! Read the rest of this entry »

In Part I of my exciting series, I explained why I care about undergrad research. Now here are the top 5 reasons why you should care about getting involved in research!
“Undergrad Researcher” is not synonymous with “Head Dishwasher.” Promise.

I do not get summers off. I work 12 months out of the year. My perception is that many people think we in the admissions world don’t work summers because high schools aren’t in session during the summer. Unfortunately that’s not true. I also don’t get time off for winter or spring break. I’m here year round.
But getting back to summer, I might not have it off, but it is the time to start planning for the next recruitment class and to work on projects that are difficult to work on during the recruitment season.
However I don’t want to give the impression that the summer is as fast paced as during the school year…things tend to slow down quite a bit.

I just recently got Instagram (I know I’m late haha). As someone who used to reject Instagram and preferred real cameras, I have succumbed to technology, especially since it’s a lot more convenient than uploading pics to a computer and editing each by hand.
Since I have only about 10 posts, I was thinking of ways I could use my Instagram to its fullest potential.
So I decided that for each day in the month of June, I will post a pic of my “Favorite Buckeye Things.” It could be my friends, my favorite buildings or spots on campus, my favorite things about Columbus, etc.
I’ll be writing a blog post each week, except it’ll mainly be photos from my Instagram, but you can follow me @meerakn if you’d like to see the photos as they’re posted each day instead of at the end of the week.
The purpose is that I’ll be able to give future students more perspective on how much Ohio State really means to its students and the sort of memories you can create on this campus.
Hope you enjoy it!

Sure, you’ve heard OSU is “a large research university,” blah blah, but that’s just to make the university sound good, right? What does “research” actually mean for the average student?
I’ve been working in a materials chemistry lab for the last semester-plus and love it. In the next two posts, I’m explaining (1) why I care about undergrad research and (2) why you should care about it too.
1. I like it. I was always super-excited to come into the lab in the beginning of the semester. However, I was sure I would eventually get tired of it and just waited for the novelty to wear off.
The scary part: the novelty hasn’t worn off. Read the rest of this entry »

Early this past semester, I visited the 400 W. Rich Market. I was there as a research volunteer, surveying the townspeople, but being there, I got to see an entirely different side of Columbus.
The market is on the West Side of Columbus, in the Franklinton District, on the banks of the Olentangy.
