Where, Oh Where, Has Rylan Been?

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Hi Y’all! It’s me, Rylan. Yes, I’m alive(?)! I’ve been a little absent from the blog this semester, and I wanted to explain why. Hopefully, in the process, I might also shed some light on the possibilities of student life at OSU and the art of being busy (which are both more apt topics than me simply venting about my routine). Here’s what I’ve been up […]

The Joye of Cooking

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Now that the obligatory Discworld reference is done with, we’re going to talk about something that everyone really should know how to do — especially if you’re going to college.

Perks to Dorm Life

Written by    Mar 30, 2018

Living in the dorms for two years is something students should definitely see as a positive rather than a negative. As the last class with the option to do so, I personally didn’t mind having those two years to live on campus, and here’s a few reasons why:

Creed Bratton at Ohio State

Written by    Mar 29, 2018

Last Friday, I was excited to add another celebrity to my list of famous people I’ve seen while attending Ohio State. The Buckeye Standup Comedy Club hosted their third annual Big Spring Show, and they brought Creed Bratton from The Office in to perform for it.

Things no one told me about college

Written by    Mar 26, 2018

Okay, obviously you hear a lot of advice and information before going off to college. But no one ever talks about the little things, the tiny, insignificant differences that are actually pretty big changes. Here are a few things nobody told me, and that took me by surprise. You DON’T ASK THE PROFESSOR to use the restroom. This may sound like a really dumb thing to be […]

Ways to Make A Difference

Written by    Mar 21, 2018

One of the great things about attending Ohio State is the opportunity to discover causes that call you to action! There’s something for everyone to stand behind, and one of the causes I find myself gravitating toward is cancer research. Two of my favorite ways to make a difference are through participating in the Ohio State 4 Miler and in BuckeyeThon.

Exploring Columbus: My first visit to the Arena District

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve lived in a suburb of Columbus my whole life, but I never really get out and explored the city. I’ve been downtown quite a few times in my life, but I don’t know the city too well, and there are a lot of hidden gems I’ve been missing. I have gone to the statehouse and the Ohio Theatre and the […]
