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 […]

A New Way of Living

Written by    Sep 4, 2018

As with most third-year Ohio State students, I am now in the beginning stages of living off campus for the first time in my college career, as I moved into a house with six of my best friends a few weeks ago. I knew there would be some changes in store after two years of living in campus housing: No front desk to provide me […]

Wait, Columbus Has a Baseball Team?

Written by    May 16, 2018

Between Ohio State football, Ohio State basketball, Blue Jackets hockey, and Crew soccer, it can be easy to forget that Columbus also has a professional baseball team. The Columbus Clippers are the Cleveland Indians’ AAA-level affiliate, meaning they play at the highest level of minor league baseball and their players are right on the cusp of playing in the major leagues. I love watching baseball […]

The Perks of Being on Campus

Written by    May 1, 2018

I am part of the second class at Ohio State that has been required to live on campus for my first two years here. When Ohio State first made the change, opinions were mixed and even now, some of my fellow sophomores complain about not being able to live where they want their second year like some of their friends at other schools. After having […]

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 […]
