Stories from a football school

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I chose to go to a football school. That isn’t to say that my school is not strong in academics, research, and global impact; actually, it’s great in all of those too. I just mean that football is such an integral part of life at Ohio State that you can’t get by without it, and it contributes a lot to the student experience. I grew […]

Thank you, Ohio State

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

It seems the sun is finally setting on my time here at The Ohio State University. During my final semester as a student, I have been taking more time than usual to reflect on my college journey. It all started on an airplane. I was trying to decide between Ohio State and another university. I wrote down all the pros and cons for each school […]

A Tasty Night

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I went to my first OUAB event of the year recently, and this one was different than any other one I had been to before. Claire King, the head chef for Buzzfeed’s Tasty came to talk about how she ended up working at Buzzfeed and how they make those super-fast cooking demonstrations that take over your Facebook feed. When I got to the event, I was […]

It’s official: I’m graduating early

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

It’s time to celebrate. My Honors Contract was accepted! This means that all my classes in past, present and future, as well as my character and academic standing, have been approved for me to graduate with Honors distinction. More importantly, I have enough credits and enough rigorous coursework to graduate a year early. I’m only a sophomore, and I get to graduate next year. How cool is […]

Home? For Fall Break?

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

Yes, you read that right. After two years of leaving campus but not actually going home during fall break (once for a vacation to New York, once to Minneapolis for a family bat mitzvah,) I finally got a chance to relax in Cleveland during the second week of October. I drove home with one of my housemates that Wednesday, with a final exam behind me and five […]

You are What You Eat (Pt. II)

Written by    Oct 24, 2018

Part of a series on eating on campus. Read part one. Like most college students (and humans everywhere, let’s be honest), I love pizza. Unlike many college students, however, one of my main food groups is not pizza. I try to eat healthy. But Ohio State provides the best of both worlds: mouth-watering, customizable and healthy (if you pick your toppings right!) pizza. My absolute […]

The importance of networking

Written by    Oct 24, 2018

“Networking” is a term you never hear until college, and when you do hear it, it seems vague at best. Personally, I didn’t think networking made sense; how am I supposed to actively “network,” and is that really what’s going to present opportunities to me? Aren’t my jobs and experiences going to come from going to career fairs, handing out my resume, and completing applications? The truth […]

You can do everything right, and it might still go wrong

Written by    Oct 11, 2018

I have bad dreams about not waking up in time for my 8 a.m. class. I have two alarms, just in case one doesn’t go off.  This morning, neither went off, and I woke up at 8:20.   I studied every day and night for a week for my psychology exam. Flashcards, reading the textbook, reading all my notes, making charts — the whole nine […]
