A smart way to make a little extra cash

Written by    May 31, 2018

I just got a check in the mail from Ohio State. Would you like one? Ohio State does this really cool thing where you can help others, help yourself and make money all at the same time. If you have a student with a disability in your class and they request a note-taker, any classmate can do it. All you do is take thorough notes […]

Senior Week

Written by    May 24, 2018

At the end of the semester, I usually found myself leaving campus as quickly as possible, but with graduation and training for my internship, I got to see and experience all of the craziness that happens during a senior’s final week as a student. The week kicked off with a craft night, where seniors were invited to decorate their caps. As you can see, mine […]

Freshman year: class reviews

Written by    May 16, 2018

Well, my first year at OSU is over (wasn’t I just walking around the involvement fair last week? Using google maps to find my classes?) and it feels so weird. It absolutely flew by, and to think I’m only doing that a few more times in my life is crazy. Anyways, enough with my sentimentality. I thought it would be helpful to review my classes […]

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 […]

The best decision I made freshman year

Written by    Feb 12, 2018

You probably hear a lot of scheduling advice. Don’t take any 8 a.m.s! Don’t take online classes, you’re lying to yourself if you think you’ll do the work! Schedule all your classes close together! 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. […]
