First Day of Spring

Written by    Mar 21, 2017

Or so people tell me. But with it still being cold and spring break having ended, it doesn’t quite feel like the first day of spring. According to the calendar it is though. Seems rather arbitrary. And speaking of spring break, how was everyone’s? Mine was mundane sitting around the house doing nothing of importance. It was great, being a cat. And it’s given me […]

Safe Zones at Ohio State

Written by    Mar 13, 2017

Last week, I attended an LGBT Safe Zone training put on by Ohio State’s Multicultural Center. As someone who is involved in several LGBT groups on campus, I went as a refresher on information I was already somewhat familiar with. However, I was excited to see that most of the other participants in the training were Ohio State faculty and staff members who were eager […]

The Truth About RAs: Real Talk

Written by    Mar 9, 2017

Movies do a really poor job of showing us what resident advisors are like; they’re portrayed as no fun, stuck-up, and out to get residents at every turn. This couldn’t be more wrong. I have talked to a lot of people that dearly cherish their RA, and I myself have grown fond of mine. Especially now that many of my friends are getting ready to […]

What Meal Plan Should I Get?

Written by    Mar 6, 2017

One of the most difficult parts of the housing selection process for me last year was choosing which meal plan to get. As an incoming freshman who knew a total of five people going to Ohio State, I did not have many people to ask. After changing my meal plan five times during that first week of school, I thought I would offer some advice to any […]

Free Sporting Events for the Best Fans in the Land!

Written by    Mar 6, 2017

We all know how important the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State is. Students live for that cold Saturday game against TTUN (That Team Up North). That is why I am proud to say that this year I watched Ohio State beat Michigan not once, but twice! That’s strange, you might be thinking, Ohio State only played Michigan once during the football season? But here’s a fun […]

Be an OWL!

Written by    Mar 2, 2017

I am sitting at a picnic table behind the Union, doing some homework (sort of), minding my own business (hardly). Tour groups are pouring out of the inside of the Union: mobs of angsty high school seniors are drudging after the tour guide, and their parents are standing a little too close for their high school senior swag (seriously, only the parents ask questions on […]

Ohio State: A Hotbed for Comedy?

Written by    Feb 27, 2017

One great (though unexpected) thing I’ve discovered about Ohio State is that there always seems to be a free comedy show going on.

Why I didn’t go random

Written by    Feb 27, 2017

When I first decided that I was going to attend Ohio State, I was very nervous about getting a roommate I wouldn’t get along with. I wanted someone who would be a good friend and a fun person to be with. I had heard mixed reviews for both going random and self selecting. Over the course of my first year, I have heard many of the […]
