Maymester Experiences Part One

Written by    Jun 19, 2017

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer break! Although I’m home in Cleveland for the summer, I found out that several of my friends took advantage of an Ohio State experience called Maymester Study Abroad. This is when students can participate in a program during the month of May (after spring semester finals end) that allows them to visit a different country. I interviewed them […]

Prediction Results: Spring 2017 Edition

Written by    May 11, 2017

As you may remember, I wrote a blog post in January where I made predictions about all of my classes for the semester. Now that I’ve been on summer break for over a week, I figured it was time to reflect on these predictions and see how accurate I was.

Volunteering + Learning about a Cool Columbus Resource!

Written by    Apr 24, 2017

This weekend, I went with some of my friends in the LGBT sorority to volunteer at Kaleidoscope Youth Center, Columbus’s center for LGBT youth ages 12-20. Because none of us had ever been there before, we started off with a tour of the center. It’s an amazing and huge building, with a library full of LGBT-related books, a technology center, a cafe, and much more. […]

Numerous Research Resources

Written by    Apr 17, 2017

This semester, I’m in a history class that requires us to write a few essays analyzing articles from historical newspapers. I cringed a little when I read this in the syllabus, imagining me sitting in Thompson Library for hours with newspapers strewn all around me, searching for the perfect article. Luckily, Ohio State gives us access to an online database that eliminates the need for […]

Safe Zones at Ohio State

Written by    Mar 13, 2017

Last week, I attended an LGBT Safe Zone training put on by Ohio State’s Multicultural Center. As someone who is involved in several LGBT groups on campus, I went as a refresher on information I was already somewhat familiar with. However, I was excited to see that most of the other participants in the training were Ohio State faculty and staff members who were eager […]

The Country We Love With Diane Guerrero

Written by    Mar 8, 2017

Last week, I attended yet another amazing OUAB event: seeing actress Diane Guerrero speak. I love Orange is the New Black, and I expected her talk to be about her time on the show, but most of her talk was about her experiences being the child of undocumented immigrants who were deported when she was in high school. Although it wasn’t what I was expecting, it was […]

Real Life Experience Outside the Classroom

Written by    Feb 23, 2017

This semester, I’m in an audiology class for my major, where we learn all about how to test people’s hearing and the different types of hearing problems they might have. I’m really interested in audiology, so I was already excited to take the class. But I was even more excited to find out that we’d actually get to test someone’s hearing as part of the […]

Books Galore!

Written by    Feb 15, 2017

I love love love books, so I was thrilled that Ohio State has Thompson Library with 11 floors full of books to enjoy. However, I quickly found out that while Thompson Library is great when you need books for a research project, it doesn’t have so many books that I want to read for fun.

It’s Never Too Late to Try Something New!

Written by    Jan 18, 2017

As a second-semester junior, I can tell that I’m very settled into my routine. Generally I’m fine with this–I like having a routine of things I’m used to and that I enjoy. But I also realized that it’s been a while since I’ve tried anything outside of my routine, and I’m running out of time to do new things! That’s why I’m glad to report […]
