Three Months of Summer?

Written by    May 1, 2018

One perk of being in college is that your summer vacation is much longer than it was in high school. We have three-and-a-half months away from school. What am I even supposed to do with all this time? Some students get internships; others choose to study abroad. (Hopefully I’ll do both of those things before I graduate.) This summer, however, I’ll be taking classes at […]

Finals Week Doesn’t Have to Suck

Written by    May 1, 2018

I had four final exams to take, and many late night study sessions in the library. But there’s good news! Finals week isn’t always that bad. My first round of finals was rough, […]

Written by    May 1, 2018

The freezing cold walks to class and late nights cramming for midterms made the idea of a week of relaxation and sleeping in at home all the more appealing. Besides, I’d get to hang out with high school friends and see my pets again. What […]

Major Change, Part Two

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Last semester, I changed my major from international studies to social work. It was definitely a nerve-wracking decision, and there’s still the possibility that things could change and I could change my mind again, but I do feel confident that my decision was a good one. That isn’t because I’m 100% set on a specific career, but because I’ve had the chance to learn more […]

The Hammocks Are Back!

Written by    Mar 12, 2018

No Ohio State student is quite sure why the second semester is referred to as the “spring” semester. We bundle up for class every morning with a puffy coat, scarf, gloves, and a hat for the trek to class in half a foot of snow. We proceed spend the day taking that coat off and putting it back on again about half a billion times […]

My life plan is…

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

“So, what do you want to do with your life?” As college students, we’ve all been asked this question at one point or another. You might have your entire life planned out and know exactly the job you want to have when you graduate, where you’re going to live, who you’ll marry, how many kids you’ll have, and their names (okay, maybe that’s a bit […]

Getting Sick in College

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

Your worst nightmare: You’re sick, away from home, and realize there’s no one here to take care of you. Okay, maybe it’s not your worst nightmare, but it can be pretty bad when you have a mile to walk to class and midterms coming up. And on a big campus with thousands of students, it’s pretty easy for germs to spread and students to get […]

Best Places to Eat on Campus

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

Sloopy’s Diner If you’re looking for a sweet dessert, Sloopy’s is the place to go. At first, I was a little skeptical of the idea of pancakes covered in peanut butter and chocolate chips, but I soon discovered they were a little heaven on Earth. Also, you can get milkshakes with Oreo crumbs or Reese’s toppings. My absolute favorite thing to order from Sloopy’s is […]
