The start of something new

Written by    Oct 25, 2016

The past few semesters, I’ve been helping out with a really cool project. A group of people and I are working to start a chapter of Gamma Rho Lambda (GRL), an LGBT-inclusive sorority, at Ohio State. It’s been so much fun to be a part of this group, so I wanted to share a little bit about it with you.

Written by    Oct 3, 2016

I love those obscure holidays that you’ve never heard of until you see it trending on Twitter, or Sandra Boynton posts a cute illustration about it. You know–national [insert food here] day or international [random career] day. So I’ve decided to start trying to celebrate more of these wacky holidays, and it turns out that Ohio State is a good place to do it. Here’s […]

Easy apartment meals!

Written by    Sep 20, 2016

In my last blog post, I mentioned that one of the things that was different about living in an apartment as opposed to a residence hall was that I have to make my own meals. I’ve been experimenting with some recipes, and I wanted to share some successful ones with you!

Residence hall vs. apartment

Written by    Sep 12, 2016

This year, I’ve moved out of the on-campus residence halls and into an apartment. In the three weeks that I’ve lived here, I’ve noticed some differences between the two that I wanted to share with you: 1. My own bedroom Instead of having to squish two people into a tiny dorm room, this year I have a whole room to myself. It’s so nice to […]

Community Commitment

Written by    Aug 29, 2016

Today, I attended Community Commitment, Ohio State’s annual day of community service that is held at the beginning of fall semester. This year was the 20th year that OSU has had a Community Commitment day, but it was the first time I’d gone, so I was excited to see what it was like! I went with some of the girls from the LGBT sorority I’m […]

The Involvement Fair…from behind the tables

Written by    Aug 22, 2016

If you attended the involvement fair on Saturday, you probably marveled at how many people and organizations there were, found some orgs you were actually interested in joining, and maybe signed some sign-up sheets just because the org was giving out some cool free stuff. Since you already know that side of the experience, I’m going to tell you what it’s like to be one of […]

Goal #3: Check!

Written by    May 10, 2016

During my last day on campus, I was dying for a study break, but I was also tired of doing the same activities around Ohio State. Luckily, I remembered that I still needed to complete Goal #3: explore the rest of Columbus. I decided to fulfill this goal by going to the Short North.

The MSLC is for me!

Written by    Apr 9, 2016

At the beginning of this semester, my statistics professor mentioned that if we needed help with any of the material covered in class, we should try visiting the MSLC for help. “MSLC?” I wondered. “What’s that? And why would I ever want to spend more time working on statistics than I have to?” MSLC is the Math and Statistics Learning Center, and despite my initial […]
