MMC project group classes

Written by    Oct 11, 2018

As a student in Media, Marketing and Communication Scholars (MMC), one of the main “career” components of the program is project group classes. Project group classes are taught by MMC upper-level students and meet once a week in Morrill Tower.  They focus on learning a skill related to the media, marketing and communications industry.

The most thorough way to study ever

Written by    Oct 11, 2018

Talk to anyone who knows me, and you’ll find out I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I’m in bed by 9:30 every night, I don’t settle for less than a 100% on anything, I like to keep things clean, and I show up at least 30 minutes early to everything. You can see my perfectionism in my approach to academics, too. I’ve developed what I […]

What’s a two day weekend?

Written by    Sep 11, 2018

I’m spoiled. It’s my third semester at The Ohio State University, and I’ve never had a full week of classes. Semester one, my classes were Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday; semester two, Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday; and now, I only have classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Thus, I’ve never had a weekend that’s only two days. To be clear, I know this isn’t possible for every student, but I do know that the odds are […]

How to “do it all” and still get 8 hours of sleep

Written by    Jul 31, 2018

College is overwhelming. There are lots of opportunities that you are encouraged to try, lots of difficult classes that take up much of your personal time, and not as much money in your pocket as you are used to. Trust me, I get it: I am currently a pre-med double major who works two jobs, volunteers each week, studies for the MCAT and serves as president […]

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 […]
