Getting Creative with Best Food Forward

Written by    Oct 28, 2019

Since last year, I’ve taken advantage of Ohio State’s Best Food Forward program. Best Food Forward is a group on campus that buys fresh, local produce at bulk rates and sells it to members of the Ohio State community at a lower cost than they would get at a supermarket. It’s been a great way for me to eat healthy, fresh food while living off-campus […]

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. […]

Restaurant Reviews, Part 2: Rush Bowls

Written by    Feb 6, 2019

For a long time, the part of Lane Avenue that represented Ohio State’s northern border stretching from High Street to the Schottenstein Arena didn’t have much new to offer students. Stores, restaurants, and housing had been in the same spot for a long time without change, but in the last few years Lane saw some new life with the addition of new apartment complexes and this […]

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 […]

How to thrive on the Gray 10 dining plan

Written by    Feb 4, 2019

I, like many of my friends, switched to the Gray 10 dining plan to save a little money this semester. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the 10, some saying it’s the right amount, some saying it’s just not enough. But the Scarlet 14 was just too many meals for me, and I wondered why I was paying for excess. In these past few weeks, I’ve […]

Two Thumbs up for Poke Bros

Written by    Jan 29, 2019

Living off campus, I spend a lot of time scouting out the best places to eat on High Street when I don’t feel like cooking for myself. Earlier this month, searching for good food became a little bit easier when Poke Bros opened across from north campus, enabling me to walk to the restaurant pretty much in a straight line from my house. Although there were […]

You are What You Eat (Pt. III)

Written by    Jan 29, 2019

What’s one thing all college students have in common? We’re always hungry. One of my favorite meals is from the rice bowl station at Curl Market. For $7.95 (five cents shy of a swipe) you can get a pretty substantial and yummy meal. I order rice, chicken, lettuce, carrots, edamame and cucumbers. They also offer mushrooms, tofu and scallions. I don’t like my bowl drenched […]

Columbus Food Scene: North Market

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

The Short North, which is just south of campus along High Street, is home to some of Columbus’ best restaurants. If you want a one-stop-shop packed with tons of delicious food from a variety of restaurants, however, you should try the North Market. Last weekend, we celebrated my friend’s birthday and went out to dinner with a big group of girls. North Market is the […]

A Tasty Night

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I went to my first OUAB event of the year recently, and this one was different than any other one I had been to before. Claire King, the head chef for Buzzfeed’s Tasty came to talk about how she ended up working at Buzzfeed and how they make those super-fast cooking demonstrations that take over your Facebook feed. When I got to the event, I was […]

The Great Return of Pomerene Hall

Written by    Sep 24, 2018

This past Sunday, I went to a building I had never previously explored at any time in the past two years. What’s more, this building was on south campus, just down the street from Smith-Steeb and Park-Stradley, where I lived for the last two years. How is this possible, you may ask? The historic Pomerene Hall has actually been closed since 2016 for renovations, and […]
