Football and Family

Written by    Nov 30, 2016

For the longest time, I was never really interested in football. I loved watching it, but I never took much interest to the sport itself. The rules were confusing, the games were always at least 4 hours long, and I just didn’t really understand why people enjoyed the sport so much. This, of course, was before I came to Ohio State. Coming to this school […]

Fall in love with OSU

Written by    Nov 21, 2016

I have never been a fan of fall. Not that I am completely against it, but it just has never been my thing. It had always marked the beginning of the end: the end to warm weather, the end to summer tans, pretty much the end to everything. Ok, let me now rephrase my first sentence in this blog. I have never really been a […]

How to Run a Marathon When You Don’t Like Running

Written by    Nov 21, 2016

Recently, I participated in the Columbus City marathon only a few short weeks ago. There are over 20,000 people who participate in either the full or half marathon and it is a Boston Marathon Qualifying preliminary race. Now picture a girl who hasn’t run further than six miles in her life before the beginning of this past summer. She never did cross country or track […]

Finding the Garden: The Aftermath of the 2016 Presidential Election

Written by    Nov 10, 2016

In her Harvard commencement speech in 2008, J.K. Rowling said, “Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experiences we have never shared.” In the light of recent events, I […]

COSI After Dark

Written by    Oct 28, 2016

I am constantly bragging about the endless opportunities Ohio State has to offer. That being said, Ohio State not only provides students with countless academic opportunities, but also social opportunities. One of the best parts of this university is that it is located right next Columbus.  Columbus is home to Broadway performances, start-up restaurants, professional sports teams, shopping, art galleries, museums, and so much more. It is only […]

Gotta Pick ‘Em All!

Written by    Oct 19, 2016

If you’re looking for a break from midterms or just want to get off campus in general, I highly recommend the 20 minute drive to Lynd’s Farm in Pataskala, Ohio. Lynd’s offers fresh apple picking as well as a pumpkin patch, a corn maze, and a market that sells locally made Ohio products and produce. After an amazing four hours at the farm, I got […]

Hillary comes to Ohio State

Written by    Oct 13, 2016

When I first decided to come to The Ohio State University, I knew it would provide me with opportunities I had never had before; countless clubs, activities, and resources would be at my disposal. However, I didn’t realize just how big of a deal Ohio State really is until this week. I was leaving the game against Indiana on Saturday when someone handed me a […]

Is this a play I see before me?

Written by    Oct 7, 2016

This semester, I am taking Theatre 2100, and one of the assignments is seeing three plays over the course of the semester produced by the Ohio State Department of Theatre. I saw the first of the three plays, Macbeth, last Saturday, and the performance was unlike anything I had ever seen on stage. Having read Shakespeare several times over my educational career, I thought I […]

Community Commitment: How Buckeyes Pay It Forward

Written by    Sep 28, 2016

One thing that I really looked forward to doing as a college student was getting engaged in the community with more integrity. Being at Ohio State gives you a ton of opportunities to get involved in the city of Columbus in political, social, and civic ways, but also gives you the opportunities to give back to the community. One of the first chances I got to experience that was […]

A Very Columbus Weekend

Written by    Sep 26, 2016

  When I was a freshman, part of Commencement was “exploring Columbus” as Ohio State is so keenly sibling to, or arguably a gear within, Ohio’s capital. While this event can certainly help students from out of the town get acquainted with the city they will now have as a secondary home, there is definitely a difference between walking around a city and experiencing it through […]
