I Did It and I Had Help

Written by    Apr 26, 2016

I just walked out of my last class at Ohio State. I have a final to take next week, a writing portfolio to put together, and a research paper to write, but once those things are done, I will be actually, really, for once, done. Forgive me for using this platform as a diary just one more time. I cannot believe that this is over. […]

Class recommendations

Written by    Dec 15, 2015

Through completing my GEC courses, almost completing three minors, and bouncing around majors for three years until I found one I liked–Strategic Communication– I ended up taking a lot more classes than I needed to. Sometimes that was a bad thing. There are a few classes I got C’s in that I never needed to take in the first place, but I did end up stumbling on […]

Touring Ohio State

Written by    Dec 15, 2015

Astonishingly, my younger sister has grown into a high school junior and has begun looking at colleges and universities. After hearing her thoughts on other Ohio universities like Dayton and Miami, I had to show her Ohio State. She came to visit the Sunday night before Thanksgiving, so I scheduled us a campus tour for Monday afternoon. On Monday morning I took her to a group meeting and a […]

12 ways I am preparing for senior year

Written by    May 22, 2015

This summer I am preparing for my senior year by: 1. Never, ever, ever cleaning my room. 2. Getting the Alpine Ski and Board Team ready for the Fall. I was just elected president after spending the last year as vice president. I have to plan race weekends, a winter trip to Colorado for upwards of 100 people, and ski movie premieres. Last year we put on the […]

Concerts in Columbus

Written by    Feb 3, 2015

Columbus is the largest city in Ohio and the 15th largest in the country. For music-lovers like me, that means concerts! Rarely do I see a band pass up Ohio during their tours, and often Columbus is the city they choose to perform in. In the last four months, I have gotten to see three of my favorite acts perform: Jack White, Alt-J, and Fleetwood […]

Burrito places at Ohio State, ranked

Written by    Jan 29, 2015

Something I really adore about going to a school as large and centrally located as Ohio State is that the food options around campus are varied and numerous. More importantly than that, there are at least ten places within a ten minute walk from campus that sell burritos. This wasn’t something I considered when I decided to attend Ohio State but I feel like it’s important […]

Cycle Yoga at the RPAC

Written by    Nov 10, 2014

Your tuition pays for lots of things at OSU: your education (obviously), the beautiful buildings we have on campus, student legal services, our excellent library system, guest speakers and musical acts brought to OSU for students. But another wonderful thing it pays for are our incredible recreational facilities. They’re so good that, in fact, OSU has been ranked as having the fittest students in the […]

It’s On Us

Written by    Nov 5, 2014

It’s On Us is a White House campaign aimed at preventing sexual assault on college campuses nationwide, and it has been brought to Ohio State! This movement is transcendental in that it is attempting to involve all students in the conversation about sexual assault and calling everyone to action to keep each other safe.

Written by    Oct 10, 2014

1. You’ll be scared, probably of everything at first, but it’ll be a great opportunity to learn to adapt to a situation. The country you’re in won’t change and it won’t become less scary; but instead, you’ll learn to be comfortable.

Finals Week: We Just Stole A Classroom

Written by    Apr 22, 2014

Ahhhh finals week.  We all know this is the most productive time of year for me in terms of blogging.  In terms of studying, not so much.  Of course the two main libraries on campus (Thompson and the SEL*) have been reduced to zoos at 2pm on this lovely Reading Day.  Kendra and I have resorted to occupying an empty classroom, which thus far is […]
