Learning from the police

Written by    Mar 27, 2018

Last Thursday, I went to one of my favorites event at Ohio State so far. I had heard of the student organization Sustained Dialogue at the beginning of the year, and I was intrigued by its mission of bringing opposing voices together for a constructive conversation. One of their biggest events is the annual police dialogue, where students who may have varying opinions of police get to speak […]

The Secret Cafe

Written by    Mar 13, 2018

If you ever find yourself needing a break from campus food but not actually wanting to go off campus, would it even surprise you if I said Ohio State has the perfect place for that? The Heirloom Cafe is located in the basement of the Wexner Center for the Arts, right next to the Oval. Because it’s not a campus-run restaurant, and because it’s located […]

Facing Career Fair Fears

Written by    Feb 12, 2018

Almost since the time I started at Ohio State, I had heard about, and been afraid of, career fairs. It was hard for me to fathom how I could walk up to a recruiter, hand them my resumé, and speak confidently enough to plant in their heads the idea that I should get an internship at their company. As a result, I avoided career fairs […]

Basketball is Back!

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

Last year, I really had no desire to go to Ohio State basketball games. In addition to the arena being far from my building and games being on weeknights, the team could be best described as mediocre. But this year, things have taken a turn for the better. Under the leadership of new coach Chris Holtmann, the Buckeye basketball squad has 18 wins against just […]

John Mulaney? In Person?

Written by    Jan 16, 2018

Back in June, I found out that one of my favorite comedians, John Mulaney, would be coming to Columbus as part of his national Kid Gorgeous tour. I was even more excited when I found out that he would be performing at Mershon Auditorium on campus–just a five-minute walk away from my building! I quickly bought tickets with my friend Jason, and thus began seven long […]

Light Up North Area

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

I do not often get to go to holiday celebrations during this time of year. Between finals and traveling, it can be hard to fit it into my schedule. However, I made sure to make time this year for Light Up North Area. The student service group Ohio Staters holds this event every December, and since it was on the last day of classes, I was […]

How to Console a Michigan Fan

Written by    Nov 28, 2017

The rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan is so renowned in college football that their annual matchup is known simply as “The Game.” However, in recent memory, it could easily be known to Ohio State fans as “The Win.” Since 2001, the Buckeyes have lost just twice to the Wolverines, and are undefeated at home. Last week’s game brought a scare to Ohio State as […]

Fisher Impact Day

Written by    Nov 17, 2017

Last Friday, we had a day off from classes for Veterans’ Day. I have an 8 a.m. class on Fridays, so this meant I had a week off from waking up early to walk across campus, right? Not so fast. For the day off, the Fisher College of Business held their annual Fisher Impact Day. I was one of nearly 1,000 students who took part […]

Four Miles at Ohio State

Written by    Oct 26, 2017

Ohio State may be the second-largest university in the U.S., and we may have the sixth-best football team (as of this writing,) but when it comes to four-mile races, we can’t be beat. On Sunday I ran in the Ohio State Four Miler, the largest race of its distance in the country. Proceeds from the run go toward cancer research at the James Cancer Hospital […]

Fun and Games (and a Surprise Parade!)

Written by    Oct 12, 2017

Last year, I heard about a cool place in the Short North called Kingmakers. For $5, you could choose from a huge collection of board games and play for hours on end with your friends. I thought this seemed like a great concept and hoped to go this year. Meanwhile, I am also a mentor for my Scholars program, so I have a group of five […]
