Major Change, Part Two

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Last semester, I changed my major from international studies to social work. It was definitely a nerve-wracking decision, and there’s still the possibility that things could change and I could change my mind again, but I do feel confident that my decision was a good one. That isn’t because I’m 100% set on a specific career, but because I’ve had the chance to learn more […]

Bouncing back from a bad grade

Written by    Mar 12, 2018

I’m like a lot of other OSU students: straight A’s in high school, top of the class, perfectionist, etc etc. So naturally, I got to college and told myself I wasn’t going to change that. I set the same painfully high standards for myself as I did for the last four years of education. I thought it would be just as simple in college as […]

No, spread out your classes! Don’t you DARE take physics and chem in the same semester! Well, I have the best piece of scheduling advice for you, and I know it’s the best from […]

New Year, New Schedule

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

Last semester, I found myself extremely envious of the students with “dream” schedules. I, on the other hand, hated my schedule. Most days, I began classes around 9:30 in the morning (at least I didn’t have any 8 a.m. classes) and finished a little after 5 in the afternoon. This semester, I totally revamped my schedule in order to have a long weekend. I’m happy […]

Unexpected Interest

Written by    Jan 22, 2018

Imagine if you will… In all seriousness, do imagine the scenario I’m about to post. In order to graduate, you need a few credit hours in classes that aren’t part of your major or minor. So, you look over the catalogue. Nothing really interests you, but you have to choose something.  So, you blindfold yourself and take the dart . . . No? Very well. […]

Semester Predictions: Spring 2018 Edition

Written by    Jan 12, 2018

The first week of classes is almost over and I’ve had all of my classes at least once, so I figured now would be a good time to give my predictions for how each of my classes will go this semester. (Yes, these predictions are all based on looking through the syllabus and meeting the professor 1-2 times, but we’ll see how accurate my initial […]

Why “Honors” is (Definitely) Worth It

Written by    Jan 2, 2018

The nice thing about the high school I went to is that many of us end up being Bucks. This meant that I had quite the list of people to text when I was stressing about random things like which chemistry professor I should try to get and if I really needed certain textbooks. Despite my rather large support network of Buckeye alums, the one […]
