Ohio State Football’s Student Appreciation Day

Written by    Apr 1, 2019

As a lifelong Ohio State football fan, I’ve spent a lot of time appreciating the Buckeyes’ success in bowl games, their ability to bring in the best recruits, and their sheer domination of That School Up North. So it was great to find out that the football team takes one day out of the year to appreciate me and the rest of the student body. […]

Topgolf!

Written by    Mar 18, 2019

I have watched a lot of golf on TV through the years, but other than one time as a camp counselor a few years back, I had never actually tried out my own skills on a driving range. You might think that the cold Ohio winters and springs would make it hard for that to change, but Topgolf has a solution to that problem. Their […]

The STEP Expo

Written by    Mar 5, 2019

Two weeks ago I completed a project that had been ongoing for the last year and a half. I’m talking about the Second-year Transformation Experience Program (STEP) project, which gives Ohio State sophomores an opportunity to pursue internships, study abroad programs and leadership or community and service projects. During sophomore year STEP participants go to weekly meetings to discuss their career paths and identities. They also attend […]

Restaurant Reviews, Part 2: Rush Bowls

Written by    Feb 6, 2019

For a long time, the part of Lane Avenue that represented Ohio State’s northern border stretching from High Street to the Schottenstein Arena didn’t have much new to offer students. Stores, restaurants, and housing had been in the same spot for a long time without change, but in the last few years Lane saw some new life with the addition of new apartment complexes and this […]

Two Thumbs up for Poke Bros

Written by    Jan 29, 2019

Living off campus, I spend a lot of time scouting out the best places to eat on High Street when I don’t feel like cooking for myself. Earlier this month, searching for good food became a little bit easier when Poke Bros opened across from north campus, enabling me to walk to the restaurant pretty much in a straight line from my house. Although there were […]

Strictly Business

Written by    Jan 22, 2019

For the first time in my college career, I’m only taking classes this semester that are in the business school or required for my major. Up until now, I had always had some departure from accounting and business-related classes with general education credits (gen eds) and history classes for my minor, but since I’ve fulfilled both of those requirements, just about everything I’ll be doing […]

Free Buckeye Basketball

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

A few weeks ago, I got a great seat to watch two of the hottest college basketball teams battle for free. For the last two years, Ohio State has offered free tickets for one of their more exciting early-season basketball games, and that was an opportunity my friends and I couldn’t pass up. I’ve written here before about how I enjoyed going to the basketball games […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Great Return of Pomerene Hall

Written by    Sep 24, 2018

This past Sunday, I went to a building I had never previously explored at any time in the past two years. What’s more, this building was on south campus, just down the street from Smith-Steeb and Park-Stradley, where I lived for the last two years. How is this possible, you may ask? The historic Pomerene Hall has actually been closed since 2016 for renovations, and […]
