Give Your Roommate a Chance

Written by    Aug 25, 2017

I like to tell people I knew right away that Steve was going to be a spectacular roommate. The truth is I had my doubts. Personally, I was born to be an introvert, there is no way around that. I normally keep to myself and do not like to be put in social situations. However, before I moved in freshman year I decided I would […]

Loving my Summer Internship

Written by    Jun 1, 2017

Working in healthcare has never been a dream of mine. Most of my colleagues have really interesting stories about how they were personally effected by the healthcare system in some way and that is what inspired them to join. My reason is simple: they offered me a paid internship out of high school. Even though I took the position for what may be the wrong reasons, […]

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 […]

Why I didn’t go random

Written by    Feb 27, 2017

When I first decided that I was going to attend Ohio State, I was very nervous about getting a roommate I wouldn’t get along with. I wanted someone who would be a good friend and a fun person to be with. I had heard mixed reviews for both going random and self selecting. Over the course of my first year, I have heard many of the […]

Moneythink OSU

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 […]

Time For a Vacation

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Second semester has been stressful! I am sure I am not alone in saying that. 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. […]

Becoming an Ohioan

Written by    Feb 1, 2017

I feel as if I have lived in Ohio my whole life. Even though I am from New York, Ohio is without a doubt my new home. Recently, I have picked up a new game called euchre. It is commonly played by people in the Midwest and I had not heard of it before college. Since learning, I have quickly become hooked. I play usually […]

Yeah, that actually happened

Written by    Nov 29, 2016

There was no way we were going to come back. Our offense hadn’t moved the ball for three quarters, our field goal kicker couldn’t kick the ball strait, and that team up north was pretty good this year. But then again, we have Urban, JT and the best damn fans in the land. There is not one reason in particular on how we pulled out […]

Post Election Unity

Written by    Nov 17, 2016

If you say that you predicted the election results, you’re probably lying. No one expected this, it’s really hard to believe now that it is more than a week past. Nonetheless, campus is divided in many ways. I know on my floor alone there have been many post election disputes. It’s important that we find things to come together. Those very special characteristics and opinions […]

Election Anxiety

Written by    Nov 7, 2016

This election is extremely weird in so many ways. It can be explained in this paradox: I am not excited about the person I voted for but it was also one of the easiest choices I have ever had to make. I am not writing this to change anyone’s minds or to dis the other side; plenty of my friends support Drumpf and that is […]
