Prediction Results: Spring 2017 Edition

Written by    May 11, 2017

As you may remember, I wrote a blog post in January where I made predictions about all of my classes for the semester. Now that I’ve been on summer break for over a week, I figured it was time to reflect on these predictions and see how accurate I was.

I Do Really Well in a Really Hard Class

Written by    May 9, 2017

It’s January. To be specific, it’s the first day of school after a long and difficult autumn semester, one which freaked me out so much I dropped all my honors classes except one in exchange for regular classes. I’m in Jennings Hall for a 9 a.m. Math 1172 class. The next class in my calculus series after the one I skated through and disappointed myself in […]

I learned my lesson

Written by    May 1, 2017

Last semester, the first time I picked up my calculus textbook was six days before the final. All semester, since my lecturer was a little dull, and since it was a class I had already technically taken (Calc 1 and 2), I didn’t feel I needed to study as much. This was a feeling I carried all semester, until seven days before the final when […]

We Came, We Saw, We (almost) Conquered

Written by    Apr 18, 2017

All endings carry with them a level of bitter sweetness, a loss both freeing and painful. The disappointment throughout crushes less, the late nights, stress, the highest highs and lowest lows are now just memories. The “Yes, I did that,” and “That was once the biggest part of my life” become little more than cemented reminders. The 2017 Robot Design project was all of that […]

Numerous Research Resources

Written by    Apr 17, 2017

This semester, I’m in a history class that requires us to write a few essays analyzing articles from historical newspapers. I cringed a little when I read this in the syllabus, imagining me sitting in Thompson Library for hours with newspapers strewn all around me, searching for the perfect article. Luckily, Ohio State gives us access to an online database that eliminates the need for […]

OSU’s Nuclear Reactor Lab

Written by    Apr 17, 2017

Did you know that the university has a nuclear reactor? Cause it does, right on West Campus. There’s no need to panic–first of all, because it’s incredibly safe. Second, because it’s a Research Reactor, not a Power Reactor. This reactor doesn’t power anything except for the tried and tested scientific method–poke something and see what happens (metaphorically in this case, of course.) Now, I hadn’t […]

Health Services at Ohio State

Written by    Apr 14, 2017

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 11 years old. I have dealt with it since, and it is important that I am always on top of my own health. Thus, it was important for me to come to a school that had quality health services for students. I found that at Ohio State. The Wilce Student Health Center is a great resource […]

Theatre 2811: The Craft of Acting

Written by    Apr 11, 2017

While the name sounds a bit precocious, the class, which counts as a Visual and Performing Arts general education, is one of my favorites, and here’s why: No final, and the midterm was 5 questions. Class size: there are 16 people in my class, and that’s the higher limit for class size. You don’t have to be a theatre major, or even good at acting. […]

Let’s Get Technical

Written by    Apr 6, 2017

Part of being a well-rounded theatre major is learning about all aspects of theatre–whether it’s on stage, directing, or contributing technical elements, it’s important to understand the basics of how each one works so you can better fulfill your role. So I’ve gone to the Forbidden Zones and back to learn all there is about the technical aspect of theatre, come see what I’ve learned!*
