Volunteering + Learning about a Cool Columbus Resource!

Written by    Apr 24, 2017

This weekend, I went with some of my friends in the LGBT sorority to volunteer at Kaleidoscope Youth Center, Columbus’s center for LGBT youth ages 12-20. Because none of us had ever been there before, we started off with a tour of the center. It’s an amazing and huge building, with a library full of LGBT-related books, a technology center, a cafe, and much more. […]

We’re Almost There!

Written by    Apr 20, 2017

With only two days of classes left in the school year, it’s hard to believe that this year flew by so quickly. Whether you’re finishing your very first year of college or you’re graduating, it’s important to study for your finals, de-stress, and don’t forget to continue making memories! The year isn’t over yet; there’s still time to have fun with your friends before you […]

Make your time at Ohio State more meaningful

Written by    Apr 18, 2017

We have two weeks left in the year, and that has me thinking “wow, where has the time gone?” Seriously… I can’t believe how fast this year went by, and I am even more shocked that I am already just about halfway done with my time here at Ohio State. This realization has me wondering if I am truly making the most of my time […]

We Came, We Saw, We (almost) Conquered

Written by    Apr 18, 2017

All endings carry with them a level of bitter sweetness, a loss both freeing and painful. The disappointment throughout crushes less, the late nights, stress, the highest highs and lowest lows are now just memories. The “Yes, I did that,” and “That was once the biggest part of my life” become little more than cemented reminders. The 2017 Robot Design project was all of that […]

Numerous Research Resources

Written by    Apr 17, 2017

This semester, I’m in a history class that requires us to write a few essays analyzing articles from historical newspapers. I cringed a little when I read this in the syllabus, imagining me sitting in Thompson Library for hours with newspapers strewn all around me, searching for the perfect article. Luckily, Ohio State gives us access to an online database that eliminates the need for […]

OSU’s Nuclear Reactor Lab

Written by    Apr 17, 2017

Did you know that the university has a nuclear reactor? Cause it does, right on West Campus. There’s no need to panic–first of all, because it’s incredibly safe. Second, because it’s a Research Reactor, not a Power Reactor. This reactor doesn’t power anything except for the tried and tested scientific method–poke something and see what happens (metaphorically in this case, of course.) Now, I hadn’t […]

Health Services at Ohio State

Written by    Apr 14, 2017

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 11 years old. I have dealt with it since, and it is important that I am always on top of my own health. Thus, it was important for me to come to a school that had quality health services for students. I found that at Ohio State. The Wilce Student Health Center is a great resource […]

Aaron Goes to Washington

Written by    Apr 13, 2017

Last week, I was fortunate enough to take advantage of an opportunity that few get at Ohio State: Going to Washington, DC, with the Politics, Society & Law Scholars Program! Most of the Scholars programs offer annual trips, and it makes sense that PSL would go to DC. In many ways, the trip was a professional one. We met with employees of different government-related organizations, […]

Me and My Automatic, Filtered Water: My Favorite Things About Ohio State

Written by    Apr 11, 2017

Stop! Don’t scroll past this! I won’t tell you about different dining plans, I promise! So I know that this is the time all you soon-to-be-freshman babies are choosing a college, and I would like to make sure that I get all the good freshman babies. I would like a protegee, specifically, that thinks I’m cool and would like me to teach them about systemic […]

Theatre 2811: The Craft of Acting

Written by    Apr 11, 2017

While the name sounds a bit precocious, the class, which counts as a Visual and Performing Arts general education, is one of my favorites, and here’s why: No final, and the midterm was 5 questions. Class size: there are 16 people in my class, and that’s the higher limit for class size. You don’t have to be a theatre major, or even good at acting. […]
