Warm weather is here!

Written by    Mar 27, 2017

Now that the weather if finally turning into something bearable, I thought it would be good to make a list of all of the outdoor activities I like to do here at Ohio State. TAN. They call it “The Oval Beach” when it is nice outside, so naturally what I do is bring my huge beach towel, my book, and headphones to The Oval to […]

Why I love Ohio State

Written by    Feb 27, 2017

Exactly one year ago I accepted my invitation to be part of The Ohio State University class of 2020. Part of me can’t believe how long ago that seems and how much I feel like I have changed. I am no longer a high school student with really not a care in a world, but now a college student who is paving her way to […]

You had me at…

Written by    Feb 1, 2017

If you told me one year ago that I would not only be rushing, but accepting a bid to sorority, I probably would have told you that you were crazy. I had absolutely no intention of rushing. To be honest, I just didn’t think that I was the type of “person” that was right for rush. But when my friends convinced me to rush, I […]

A little appreciation for Ohio weather

Written by    Jan 20, 2017

People always ask me what are some of the things that I love about Ohio State. Trust me, there are plenty; the list practically goes on and on. But, one interesting thing that always baffles people is that I love the weather here in Columbus. Now, Midwest weather is nothing to rave about. It is definitely not like Florida with its warm days, the sun […]

2016 Reflection

Written by    Dec 30, 2016

One of the best things about winter break is that you can take your mind off of schoolwork, unwind, and really just relax. I never knew how sleep deprived I was until I came home and slept for about 12 hours the first night in my warm, cozy bed. I never really realized how much I missed home until I came home for this extended period […]

Praise for Patty

When I first found out that I was going to be living in Paterson Hall for my first year of college, I would be lying if I said that I didn’t panic. The fact that it was built in the 1950s and doesn’t have air conditioning sent me into a tailspin of fearing the worst. But then again, what freshman in college could really describe their […]

Football and Family

Written by    Nov 30, 2016

For the longest time, I was never really interested in football. I loved watching it, but I never took much interest to the sport itself. The rules were confusing, the games were always at least 4 hours long, and I just didn’t really understand why people enjoyed the sport so much. This, of course, was before I came to Ohio State. Coming to this school […]

Fall in love with OSU

Written by    Nov 21, 2016

I have never been a fan of fall. Not that I am completely against it, but it just has never been my thing. It had always marked the beginning of the end: the end to warm weather, the end to summer tans, pretty much the end to everything. Ok, let me now rephrase my first sentence in this blog. I have never really been a […]

Happy to be home

Written by    Oct 27, 2016

Today my friend asked me what was my favorite thing about being at Ohio State. This was something that truly stumped me. I have been in school for the past 10 weeks, which seemed like a blink of an eye. I feel like I have already grown so many ways. From actually being able to do my laundry on my own to remembering where my classes […]

Family reunion

Written by    Oct 4, 2016

Since school started, I hadn’t seen my parents in over six weeks. I never really thought that so much time being away from them would make such an impact on my life. Now, to be clear, I was not homesick. If I’m going to be honest with myself (which is what a blog is for), I really didn’t miss anything from back home; my house, my […]
