There’s a Facebook Group for That

Written by    Nov 15, 2017

Do you have a question about a class you need to take for your major? Do you want to sell a football ticket? Are you looking for a ride home for the weekend? There’s a Facebook group for that. Although they may seem outdated compared to Twitter and Instagram, Facebook groups are still pretty useful when it comes to certain Ohio State communications. Here are my […]

An Evening with Leslie Odom Jr.

Written by    Oct 25, 2017

If you’ve read my previous blog posts, you probably know that I love OUAB’s (Ohio Union Activities Board) events where they bring celebrities to Ohio State (and all of the events are free!). If you know me in real life and/or follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I love “Hamilton”. So this past weekend I got to attend an event that combined two […]

Written by    Sep 15, 2017

I recently learned about an awesome new program available at Ohio State: Best Food Forward. This is a group of students who want to make it easier for students to have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and they’ve started bulk-buying groups to make it happen. Here’s how it works:

Gallery Hop

Written by    Sep 12, 2017

I spent my time wisely this Labor Day weekend: by going to Gallery Hop in the Short North with some friends. Gallery Hop is when the art galleries and restaurants in the Short North stay open late so that people can walk around and enjoy the artwork. It takes place on the first Saturday of every month, which means that if you’re just in Columbus during […]

The Great Gateway

Written by    Aug 28, 2017

One of the things I’ve been appreciating since coming back to Ohio State is being walking distance from the Gateway Film Center. The Gateway Film Center shows many of the movies that regular movie theaters do, but they also show many independent films and documentaries, and host special events like Sensory Friendly movies where the volume is lowered and the lights are kept on.

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 […]
