2018 Scholars Student Leadership Summit

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

On January 27th I had the opportunity to attend the Scholars Student Leadership Summit with the Media, Marketing Communication leadership team. As we walked over to the event together, like typical college students, we complained about having to wake up early and give up half a Saturday. But we were all pleasantly surprised. And it wasn’t just the free bagels, coffee and Moe’s. There was […]

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

AU17: Comm 1101— History of Communication (Pt. II) Style: Dr. Abo presented Powerpoint lectures during almost every class period. Lecture slides were posted online before class, so I would follow along on my computer and take notes in Powerpoint. Outside of class we had to complete weekly quizzes and reading. Quizzes were open note, so there were very few times I didn’t get a 100%. […]

Buckeyes vs. TTUN— Men’s Hockey

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

One of my absolute favorite things about Ohio State is the sports. When I was deciding between colleges, sports were not a huge factor for me. But now having experienced Big 10 sports, I could never go back. Maybe I have more school spirit than I thought or maybe I’m just really competitive (probably the latter). Or maybe I just really love sports and being […]

Update on the Hardboiled Eggs

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

The RPAC has some of the best food on campus, hands-down. Even though I live so close I don’t eat here all the time. I often get the smoothies from Juice 2 after I workout, but there are many healthy, yummy options that Courtside Cafe offers as well. My roommate told me about their special right now: avocado toast. I LOVE avocado toast. This one […]

h.b.e. (NYR Pt. III)

Written by    Jan 8, 2018

Another one of my goals for 2018 is to make myself like hard-boiled eggs. I know this doesn’t sound like a typical New Years’ Resolution, but I’m being 100 percent serious. I hate hard-boiled eggs. The texture grosses me out and thinking about biting into one makes me want to gag. Don’t even get me started about the smell. As someone who loves eggs in […]

Floss (NYR Pt. II)

Written by    Jan 8, 2018

One of my goals for 2018 is to floss. I’m almost positive this was one of my New Years’ Resolutions last year, but yet here we are again. Call me gross, but I’m unashamed to admit it: I don’t regularly floss my teeth. Every six months when I have my dentist appointment, I lie. The hygienist asks, “Do you floss?” Every six months I confidently […]
