I went to John Mulaney’s show and my dreams came true

Written by    Jan 16, 2018

In case you didn’t know, comedian John Mulaney came to OSU and had a show in the Wexner Center for the Arts on his Kid Gorgeous tour. You should also know that I absolutely love John. So my lovely friend Rose brought me to his show with second row, front and center tickets. For the past month, I’ve been joking about being the person in the crowd that […]

Are you in an inferior major?

Written by    Jan 16, 2018

I know I’ve discussed majors and their stereotypes before, but I feel that it’s an important topic to hone in on. So, are you in an inferior major? Come on, you know what I’m talking about. The majors that people turn their nose up at, the majors that aren’t as “intellectual,” the majors that are in that college or center on those classes. They call them easy […]

It’s 2018, and Michigan still sucks

Written by    Jan 3, 2018

Ah, yes, more unnecessary football commentary from yours truly. If you told me a year ago that I would be super into college football, I would have laughed at you. But alas, here I am, and less than a year of being a Buckeye has turned me into a crazed fan. I wouldn’t miss an opportunity to make fun of TTUN! Have you seen all the […]

Is it Christmas yet?

Written by    Dec 15, 2017

The end of a semester is a weird time. It feels like half your friends already finished their exams and are relaxing at home, while the rest of you are still stress-crying because how are you going to pass the Dendranthopology 6590 final? (Side note, dendranthopology no longer exists, if you were wondering what that was. A few centuries back, it was the study based on […]

Why OSU should be in the playoffs

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

The Crimson Tide didn’t deserve our spot and I’m not done being angry about it. Here’s why I’m right: -We are conference champs. I mean, doesn’t that make us an obvious choice? ‘Bama doesn’t have a conference champ trophy, now do they? Especially not in a conference often considered the toughest by a variety of power ratings. Plus, since Wisconsin would have been in if they beat […]

OSU Resources I wish I knew about earlier

Written by    Nov 28, 2017

OSU is here to help. They help with your homework, classes, job searches . . . even finding free or cheap tickets to events. With the amount of resources here though, it’s hard to keep track of them or even know about them. I have decided to compile a list of what I consider to be the best resources everyone should know about: The language […]

Being a High School Freshman vs. College Freshman

Written by    Nov 20, 2017

You’re 14. You walk into high school, the seniors seem kind of scary and you’re basically the butt of all the jokes. You feel awkward. You came from junior high and now you have to adjust to the social norms in this different place. Is that what it’s like being a college freshman, too? No. Thankfully, not at all. Here’s why: High school freshman classes: […]

College Misconception #3: all classes have 500 people

Written by    Nov 15, 2017

When you watch movies, college is typically portrayed as a bunch of lecture halls with 500 kids in them, where none of the kids talk to each other. It looks like stadium seating, and down at the chalk board is some wise man with glasses and a tie teaching the students while they furiously take notes. I might be an anomaly, but I have yet […]

We all have Imposter Syndrome

Written by    Nov 6, 2017

First thing’s first, if you don’t know what imposter syndrome is, let me define it: it’s the fear of being exposed as a fraud, e.g., you’re not as smart/put-together/competent as people think you are. This happens a lot the first year of college. You probably did well in high school; you got all A’s, even in AP or CCP classes. You were the smart kid. […]

Things We College Students Live For

Written by    Oct 31, 2017

There are a variety of things that keep us going at OSU. Dogs on Campus. We’re looking at you, OSU4paws. Literally everyone wants to pet your dogs. Thank you for blessing us with them in our classes. Free delivery. It may not be even food we generally like. But when a restaurant advertises that they bring it to your door for free? Suddenly, that food is the […]
