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. […]

Another Fun Thing to do in Columbus: Escape!

Written by    Mar 29, 2017

No, I’m not talking about escaping Columbus itself. On Sunday afternoon, I went with two of my friends to Lockdown Columbus, an escape room about 15 minutes northwest of campus. For those of you who have never heard of an escape room, you’re locked in a room about the size of a large office and must find clues that lead you to unlock the door […]

Written by    Mar 28, 2017

Aside from the emergencies of exams and various social obligations, there are very real emergencies that happen on the Ohio State campus. While not all are as serious as the terrorist event that occurred in November, it is still important to know where to seek shelter on campus. Ohio State does a very good job of informing its faculty, staff, and students about potentially hazardous […]

Why I love Ohio State

Written by    Feb 27, 2017

Exactly one year ago I accepted my invitation to be part of The Ohio State University class of 2020. Part of me can’t believe how long ago that seems and how much I feel like I have changed. I am no longer a high school student with really not a care in a world, but now a college student who is paving her way to […]

So, How About That Weather, Huh?

Written by    Feb 13, 2017

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of confusion, change, and uncertainty. Morning, afternoon, and night are completely different from one another, and students are struggling to adjust to the inconsistency. I’m not talking about classes or tests. I’m talking about the weather.

Working in the Language Lab

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Have you ever been to the COSI Electricity Show? You know, the one where a man with a microphone says a lot of crazy things about electricity and proceeds to make someone’s hair stand up? From a young age, I wanted to be that person up on COSI’s stage with a microphone. I might not have a microphone, but ten years later, I have found myself on COSI’s […]

A little appreciation for Ohio weather

Written by    Jan 20, 2017

People always ask me what are some of the things that I love about Ohio State. Trust me, there are plenty; the list practically goes on and on. But, one interesting thing that always baffles people is that I love the weather here in Columbus. Now, Midwest weather is nothing to rave about.

How to Properly Use Your Day Off

Written by    Jan 17, 2017

  One of my favorite things about Ohio State is the endless opportunities handed to its students. One of those opportunities is MLK Day of Service. Twice a year, Pay It Forward, a community organization on campus, hosts a service day for the entire university. These days give students and faculty the chance to go out into the Columbus community and volunteer. The volunteers are split up into groups […]
