BuckeyeThon 2017

Written by    Feb 16, 2017

BuckeyeThon 2017 was an absolute success! I had zero idea what to expect as I’d never participated before, but overall I’m proud and humbled by the Ohio State community’s ability to rally together to raise money for kids with cancer. We raised over $1.5 MILLION For the Kids!

Written by    Feb 16, 2017

There are so many wonderful clubs here at Ohio State I find it difficult to decide which ones I want to join. That being said, when I hear about one that sparks my interest I try to give it a shot. This was the case with Moneythink. My roommate/BFF told me about this organization that goes to underprivileged schools and neighborhoods to teach students financial […]

Books Galore!

Written by    Feb 15, 2017

I love love love books, so I was thrilled that Ohio State has Thompson Library with 11 floors full of books to enjoy. However, I quickly found out that while Thompson Library is great when you need books for a research project, it doesn’t have so many books that I want to read for fun.

Written by    Feb 14, 2017

If you’re considering Ohio State, I’m sure you’ve got a million things on your pros and cons list. Not to overload you, but here are a few more things to add. All of the below are things I didn’t know/didn’t think about before I accepted my admission. We’re a Coca-Cola sponsored campus.

So, How About That Weather, Huh?

Written by    Feb 13, 2017

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of confusion, change, and uncertainty. Morning, afternoon, and night are completely different from one another, and students are struggling to adjust to the inconsistency. I’m not talking about classes or tests. I’m talking about the weather.

Cute Things I Find When I Should Be Doing Other Things

Written by    Feb 13, 2017

Hello, friends! Happy Monday! As midterms have started to hit (hard), I just wanted to share with you all a couple of cute little pick-me-ups that I’ve stumbled upon in the past couple of weeks. The first was for a club I’m in called “TEDx” (we organize TEDx talks on campus with Ohio State affiliated speakers). During the involvement fair, a certain someone showed up […]

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Have you ever been to the COSI Electricity Show? You know, the one where a man with a microphone says a lot of crazy things about electricity and proceeds to make someone’s hair stand up? From a young age, I wanted to be that person up on COSI’s stage with a microphone. I might not have a microphone, but ten years later, I have found myself on COSI’s […]

New classes, new professors, new organizations to join and also finding a suitable rooming situation for next year have made second semester busy. That’s why I decided to go on a vacation last weekend. I decided on New Orleans, an essential American city to which I had not yet visited. […]

Intramurals

Written by    Feb 8, 2017

Two weeks ago, I spontaneously joined an intramural volleyball. While I stood in line during formal sorority rush, I made a new friend. This friend just so happened to be forming an intramural volleyball team and asked me to join. Intramurals were one of the few things on campus that I was not yet involved in; how could I say no? Although I already had way too much […]
