Columbus Music Scene: Hippo Campus

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

When I was searching for colleges a few years ago, I knew I wanted to be in a city. At home I live 15 minutes away from downtown Cincinnati, and I knew I couldn’t survive at a school where the nearest Target was an hour (or even more than 20 minutes, really) away. A huge plus about being in a city is the music scene. […]

Columbus Food Scene: North Market

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

The Short North, which is just south of campus along High Street, is home to some of Columbus’ best restaurants. If you want a one-stop-shop packed with tons of delicious food from a variety of restaurants, however, you should try the North Market. Last weekend, we celebrated my friend’s birthday and went out to dinner with a big group of girls. North Market is the […]

The Columbus Water Lantern Festival

Written by    Oct 11, 2018

Surprise, surprise: I went to another lantern festival. Shoutout to both Columbus for having so many and the invasive technology in my phone that knows what to advertise to me so I can live out my Tangled dreams. This time, I took my lovely friend Rose and the festival actually took place in Columbus as advertised, along the Scioto river and across from COSI and Genoa […]

The Lights Fest Columbus

Written by    Jun 15, 2018

I saw an ad almost a year ago that The Lights was coming to Columbus — a festival where thousands of people release floating lanterns into the night sky. If you know me even a little, you know I’m Disney-obsessed, and my all-time favorite Disney movie is Tangled. So I got tickets. And I lived out my dream. So, first of all, let me say […]

Exploring Columbus: German Village

Written by    May 1, 2018

Another place in my city that I’ve never visited is German Village, despite hearing a lot of great things about it. Since it’s just a 10 minute drive from campus, I headed over to the area with a friend to see what all the hype was about. Our first stop (and biggest priority) was The Book Loft. I’ve heard it’s big enough to get lost […]

Where, Oh Where, Has Rylan Been?

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Hi Y’all! It’s me, Rylan. Yes, I’m alive(?)! I’ve been a little absent from the blog this semester, and I wanted to explain why. Hopefully, in the process, I might also shed some light on the possibilities of student life at OSU and the art of being busy (which are both more apt topics than me simply venting about my routine). Here’s what I’ve been up […]

Women Empowerment through Film

Written by    Mar 26, 2018

I saw Black Panther just one week after its initial release. Clearly, you’d think I’d have to pay an outrageous price for my movie ticket…WRONG! I purchased my ticket for only $3! How is this possible?? Well, the Office of Student Life has an awesome program called D-Tix (Discount Ticket Program).   Through D-Tix, Ohio State students have the ability to purchase reduced priced tickets […]

Ways to Make A Difference

Written by    Mar 21, 2018

One of the great things about attending Ohio State is the opportunity to discover causes that call you to action! There’s something for everyone to stand behind, and one of the causes I find myself gravitating toward is cancer research. Two of my favorite ways to make a difference are through participating in the Ohio State 4 Miler and in BuckeyeThon.

Exploring Columbus: My first visit to the Arena District

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve lived in a suburb of Columbus my whole life, but I never really get out and explored the city. I’ve been downtown quite a few times in my life, but I don’t know the city too well, and there are a lot of hidden gems I’ve been missing. I have gone to the statehouse and the Ohio Theatre and the […]

Lana Del Rey at the Schott

Written by    Feb 12, 2018

Although there are many perks to attending The Ohio State University, one of my favorites is being in Columbus, Ohio. Being in a large city creates many opportunities to see some of my favorite performers in various venues near campus. A few weeks ago, I spontaneously decided to see Lana del Rey at the Schottenstein Center. The Jerome Schottenstein Center, or more commonly known as […]
