As summer is now coming to a close, I am now able to […]

Christmas break as told by a major-less freshman

Written by    Dec 27, 2016

It’s Christmas! You’re back in your hometown for a few weeks, the longest you’ve been home in months. If you live anywhere like me, meaning a small town, then you’re probably experiencing the same phenomenon as me. Everywhere you look, everywhere you go, you see someone you know (because you know everyone, and everyone knows you). You make that fatal eye contact in the grocery […]

Forget Thanksgiving, I need a post-election break

Written by    Nov 9, 2016

I don’t know about you, but this election has been pretty emotionally exhausting for me. As it was my first time voting, this is really the first election I paid a lot of attention to.

Hillary comes to Ohio State

Written by    Oct 13, 2016

Game day: an out-of-stater’s perspective

Written by    Sep 6, 2016

At last the day I had been waiting for had finally arrived: game day. If there was one thing that I actually knew about Ohio, it was that people sure do love their football.
