Let’s Talk About Social Media

Written by    Dec 11, 2017

A real quick reminder for y’all: social media is BY NO MEANS an accurate representation of anyone’s life. Lately I’ve been wasting a lot of time of social media, e.g., scrolling endlessly through the explore page on Instagram, my friends’ stories on Snapchat, my Twitter feed, etc. I also noticed that I’d been feeling a little down because of it; I wondered why it seemed […]

Going Home: How I Know I Chose the Right School

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

Like many of you, I went home for Thanksgiving this past week. I enjoyed the time spent with my family and pets, and heavily regret the absurd amounts of food that I ate. All in all, it was a great time, and I was happy to be home. Right before departing for home, though, I was overcome with a strange feeling. Why don’t I want […]

Learning to Love Change

Written by    Nov 27, 2017

I have never liked change. Whether it be small change (switching shampoo brands, for instance) or large change (like, you know, going to college), I’ve always struggled to some extent with adjustments. This year, my personal goal has been to become comfortable with change.

Written by    Nov 27, 2017

I Have a Major (!)

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Big news, guys. Very big. Things are happening. Things are coming together. As you can probably see from the title of this post, the big news is that I HAVE DECLARED A (PRE) MAJOR! I know that people change their majors every day, but this is kind of a huge turning point for me as a thus-far undecided student. I have to say, though, without […]

Scott Tots and Other Absolute Gems

Written by    Oct 18, 2017

Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of complaining about the dining halls from students. While, admittedly, I also get sick of cycling through similar meal options each week, we should remember and cherish our dining hall gems. Some of my favorites include (but are not limited to): Scott Tots: Even as the semester wears on, these are consistently golden brown, warm and all-around perfect. Without […]

Week 1: Getting to know campus

Written by    Sep 26, 2017

If you’re a fellow out-of-stater like myself, or are simply unfamiliar with OSU, you may arrive on campus knowing where exactly nothing is located. Since I showed up here with only a vague sense of where several buildings were, I made the best of my confusion by exploring campus. Here are a few of my favorite ways to get to know Ohio State: Go for […]

Top 5 Reasons to Start College Undecided

Written by    Sep 19, 2017

I never planned on starting my college career in the University Exploration program, but beginning here ended up being one of my smartest decisions to date. Rather than rushing into something that I only wanted to do halfheartedly, just so I could tell other people I was doing something that sounded good, I decided to start off without a major. Here’s just a few of […]
