Understanding the Science of Daily Life

Written by    Apr 22, 2019

As a social psychology and personality minor, I chose to take social psychology for one of my minor requirements (Psychology 2367). It was a great class and thoroughly covered the basics of social psychology, all of which was supported by research studies from the past hundred plus years. As a 2367 course, however, this class also fulfilled the general education (GE) requirement for second level […]

What Even is Strategic Communication?

Written by    Apr 22, 2019

Strategic Communication Principles with Dr. Olga Kamenchuk (Communication 2231) was probably my favorite class this semester. It was the first course that helped me specifically answer, “What is strategic communication?”  We covered the fundamentals of how marketing, branding, advertising, communication, public relations (PR) and strategy all come together to form integrated marketing communications. We learned about the entire promotional mix, how each part is integrated […]

Undergraduate Research in Communications? Why Not!

Written by    Apr 22, 2019

One of the best things about Ohio State is that it’s big enough for you to pursue anything — or everything — that interests you. This semester I was able to take an independent study course (Communication 4998) and participate in undergraduate research. Each semester the School of Communication emails a document with information from researchers seeking undergraduate assistants. I reached out to multiple faculty […]

Secrets of Thompson Library (Pt. II)

Written by    Apr 15, 2019

This is a continuation in the saga of how to access books from Thompson. How do I navigate the library’s website? Honestly I’m still figuring this out myself. For example, I wanted to read a book by Stephen King because I’ve never read Stephen King before. So I searched the library database by author. However it showed only one book was available … at Newark. […]

Secrets of Thompson Library (Pt. I)

Written by    Apr 15, 2019

Did you know that you can get a Columbus Metropolitan Library card in less than five minutes without even leaving campus? Neither did I. But you can if you go to the circulation desk on the first floor of Thompson Library (if you’re entering from the East turn left right after you rub William Oxley Thompson’s head). Ask one of the library assistants to help […]

Columbus Food Scene: Katalina’s

Written by    Apr 1, 2019

Last week one of my friends from Miami came up to visit during her spring break, and we went to Katalina’s, a brunch place I’ve been wanting to check out. Katalina’s is south of campus, located at the corner of West Third and Pennsylvania Avenue. It’s a tiny place with sharpie scribbled on the walls from customers. They serve Mexican food, which is my favorite. […]

Landing the Internship: Reflection

Written by    Mar 26, 2019

I’m thrilled to share that I’ve accepted an internship with Paycor in Cincinnati this summer. I’ll be working with their internal communications team on multiple initiatives and helping to plan Paycor’s annual sales kickoff. I couldn’t be happier, and I am so thankful to my parents, mentors, peers and professors who have helped me through this process. It looks simple and easy when students start […]

Topgolf!

Written by    Mar 18, 2019

I have watched a lot of golf on TV through the years, but other than one time as a camp counselor a few years back, I had never actually tried out my own skills on a driving range. You might think that the cold Ohio winters and springs would make it hard for that to change, but Topgolf has a solution to that problem. Their […]

TEDx Ohio State

Written by    Feb 26, 2019

Did you know that mosquito saliva has a numbing effect, which is why you don’t notice when you’re bitten? Neither did I … until I heard Dr. Bharat Bhushan speak about bio-mimicry on Saturday. This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend TEDxOhioStateUniversity, where thirteen members of the Ohio State/Columbus community gave talks about a variety of topics. The mission of TED is to […]
