Light Up the Lake

Written by    Dec 12, 2019

Back in my sophomore year, I posted about going to Light Up North Area, an annual holiday event put on by Ohio Staters, one of Ohio State’s oldest student groups. What I didn’t mention in that post was that the event was only on north campus for two years while Mirror Lake was undergoing renovation. This was the second year that Light Up the Lake […]

Spectacular speakers: Shirley Brooks-Jones

Written by    Nov 21, 2019

A few weeks ago, I went to an event hosted by Mortar Board Senior Honor Society. It was part of their speaker series, and the guest on that day was Shirley Brooks-Jones, a former Ohio State employee whose flight on September 11, 2001 was diverted to Gander, Newfoundland. Having seen the musical Come from Away, which tells the story of the 7,000 passengers stranded in […]

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 […]

Ohio State’s Special Collections Library

Written by    Feb 25, 2019

Something I love about Ohio State is that no matter how long I’ve been here I’m always finding new things on campus. Today, I got a peek into the school’s special collections, which, as a lover of books and literature, is so freaking cool. They have exclusive and minimally-circulated works collected in the basement of Thompson, in a temperature-controlled room not open to the public—but you can reach […]

Saying Goodbye Pt. 1: The Last Semester Bucket List

Written by    Feb 4, 2019

It’s crazy, and it’s weird, and it’s a little (read: a lot) sad–I’ve come to my last semester of college. There’s a lot to say simply about coming to this point (and I plan to get to that soon). But for right now, I want to alleviate some of the winter blues by making a “Last Semester at Ohio State” bucket list of things to do […]

Poetry in Columbus

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

If you’re not an English major, this is probably really lame. You might as well click out of this post now. It might be a bit random and not something many people think about (or care about, if I’m honest with myself), but Columbus has a great poetry scene. There are readings happening all the time around the city, and constant readings on campus as […]

Endless Opportunities

Written by    May 1, 2018

Although I’m only a First Year student, I already feel so many doors have been opened for me here at THE Ohio State University. When transitioning from high school to college, it’s easy to think some things are meant to be left in the past. However, I’ve found I’m still able to express myself through the endless opportunities this university has to offer. As I’ve […]

Opportunities for Creativity

Written by    Mar 8, 2018

Being a creative person with a busy schedule is proving to be a very hard task. With assignments, projects, papers, and work deadlines, I rarely find time to create art just for myself. But I’ve found some spots for creativity in the strangest places.

Are you in an inferior major?

Written by    Jan 16, 2018

I know I’ve discussed majors and their stereotypes before, but I feel that it’s an important topic to hone in on. So, are you in an inferior major? Come on, you know what I’m talking about. The majors that people turn their nose up at, the majors that aren’t as “intellectual,” the majors that are in that college or center on those classes. They call them easy […]
