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 […]

Internship Mindset

Written by    Feb 14, 2018

Hiya there, pals! Last week I celebrated (read: solid head nod) my first month-iversary with my internship. Okkkkk, technically I also interned for the same company over the summer, but I took a break last semester. And, this is my first time holding down an internship while also taking a full course load of classes. As a junior prematurely gaining graduation anxiety, I’ve found myself […]

The Perfect Internship

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

When I came back to Ohio State for my third year I knew it was time for me to start looking into internships. I was excited about the prospect of doing work that interested me, but I had no idea where to start.

I’m dropping out of school and fleeing the state.

Written by    Oct 19, 2017

No, this is not click bait. It’s true. Friends, family, loyal followers: as of Spring 2018 I will no longer be a college student. I’m giving up the cold, snowless Columbus winters, the vanilla lattes at Scott Connecting Grounds, my cosy bedroom In Taylor Tower and my long study sessions at 18th Avenue Library. I’m officially giving up making the long walk to the Gateway just […]

A Rite of Passage

Written by    Sep 18, 2017

Let’s face it. You’re not an Ohio State Student unless you’ve ridden (or at least know about) the 2. The COTA 2 is a line that goes up and down High Street. I’ve used it to ride into Downtown to see the Nutcracker at the Palace Theatre and back, and went to Melt in the Short North with my robot group. But also (let’s face […]

The End (?) of a Summer Internship

Written by    Aug 28, 2017

During a few points this summer (usually around payday), I would sit at my desk at work and think about the fact that I almost skipped the interview that got me this job. The combined factor of my finals and the 500 word email my (now) boss sent me before my interview left me feeling anxious. Plus, I was up in the air for a […]

How’s your summer going?

Written by    Jul 11, 2017

No matter where you are reading this, I hope you are not missing out on the pleasantly satisfying sunshine of the summer time. I’m writing this, with much hope to be at beach instead of this boring desk, to let you know how I’ve been spending the summer. This summer break showed me how being at Ohio State broadens the spectrum of opportunities that I can […]

Ask a Senior: Was Ohio State the Right Place?

Written by    Jul 6, 2017

Every time my mom drove me home freshman year, she asked me, “Do you think Ohio State was the right place for you to go?” My reply was always something along the lines of, “I like it at Ohio State, but I don’t know if it means that I wouldn’t be happy anywhere else.” I graduated from Ohio State this May. After graduation, my mom asked […]

Student Research: What To Expect

Written by    Jun 28, 2017

Undergraduate student research has been one of the absolute greatest things I have done during my time at Ohio State. When I was a wee little freshman just a few short years ago, you wouldn’t have been able to convince me that I would be full-time student research assistant and getting published in REAL medical journals by age 20. There are many things I didn’t […]

Student Research: How To Get the Job

Written by    Jun 28, 2017

You may be wondering how to get a job in research after hearing all about what research jobs entail… either from my post Student Research: What to Expect or from your friends at Ohio State. Either way, you are a true science geek who is obviously super eager to join a lab. Congrats! It is usually difficult to start in a lab as a freshman […]
