Why Ohio State Engineering?

Written by    Mar 21, 2017

Since March is a pretty pivotal month for college decisions, I really want to focus on potential incoming engineers. I was fortunate enough to have a few people to give me student advice, and I want to add my opinion to the mix, both because I don’t think the university description quite covers it, and I’m just selfish like that. If you’re anything like me, […]

Murphy’s Law and Freshman Robotics

Written by    Mar 6, 2017

Yesterday, four hours into a group meeting with my Fundamentals of Engineering Honors robot group, I had a realization. Fiddling with erector pieces, looking at a robot that could not even drive properly, let alone execute the graded task that it had to perfect in less than 24 hours, I said. “It seems like whatever can go wrong, will go wrong with this stupid thing.” […]

Real Life Experience Outside the Classroom

Written by    Feb 23, 2017

This semester, I’m in an audiology class for my major, where we learn all about how to test people’s hearing and the different types of hearing problems they might have. I’m really interested in audiology, so I was already excited to take the class. But I was even more excited to find out that we’d actually get to test someone’s hearing as part of the […]

Howdy folks! Well, it’s just about halfway through the semester, which means I’m in the thick of all my classes. As an English major taking 18 credit hours, this means…you guessed it, a lot of reading! (Like, a lot, a lot of reading).

Working in the Language Lab

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Have you ever been to the COSI Electricity Show? You know, the one where a man with a microphone says a lot of crazy things about electricity and proceeds to make someone’s hair stand up? From a young age, I wanted to be that person up on COSI’s stage with a microphone. I might not have a microphone, but ten years later, I have found myself on COSI’s […]

What I have learned since the second semester started: academic-wise.

Written by    Jan 30, 2017

This second semester has been severe—I have 8 a.m. classes, which I totally did not intend to do so, and my schedule is poorly distributed with four classes on Wednesdays and Fridays, but only one on Tuesdays. And I would love to share what it has been and what I learned from last three weeks. 8 a.m. is not so bad: I was devastated to […]

Online Classes: Learning in Your Pajamas

Written by    Jan 27, 2017

If you had asked me six months ago what I thought about taking a class online, I probably would have shrugged and said I didn’t feel like it was for me. However, by way of recommendation from a friend and scheduling conflict, I’m currently in two online courses: CSE 2111 and Anthropology 2200.

The Stages of the Semester’s First Late Night

Written by    Jan 27, 2017

Ahh, Week 3; faint are the memories of syllabus week and light homework, heavy are the myriad of assignments piling on. Yes, it has always seemed to me that Week 3 marks the descent into the maddening routine of consistent homework…in all your classes…every night. So, I shouldn’t have been surprised when last night I had, for the first time this semester, my first late […]
