Understanding the Science of Daily Life

Written by    Apr 22, 2019

As a social psychology and personality minor, I chose to take social psychology for one of my minor requirements (Psychology 2367). It was a great class and thoroughly covered the basics of social psychology, all of which was supported by research studies from the past hundred plus years. As a 2367 course, however, this class also fulfilled the general education (GE) requirement for second level […]

What Even is Strategic Communication?

Written by    Apr 22, 2019

Strategic Communication Principles with Dr. Olga Kamenchuk (Communication 2231) was probably my favorite class this semester. It was the first course that helped me specifically answer, “What is strategic communication?”  We covered the fundamentals of how marketing, branding, advertising, communication, public relations (PR) and strategy all come together to form integrated marketing communications. We learned about the entire promotional mix, how each part is integrated […]

Secrets of Thompson Library (Pt. II)

Written by    Apr 15, 2019

This is a continuation in the saga of how to access books from Thompson. How do I navigate the library’s website? Honestly I’m still figuring this out myself. For example, I wanted to read a book by Stephen King because I’ve never read Stephen King before. So I searched the library database by author. However it showed only one book was available … at Newark. […]

Secrets of Thompson Library (Pt. I)

Written by    Apr 15, 2019

Did you know that you can get a Columbus Metropolitan Library card in less than five minutes without even leaving campus? Neither did I. But you can if you go to the circulation desk on the first floor of Thompson Library (if you’re entering from the East turn left right after you rub William Oxley Thompson’s head). Ask one of the library assistants to help […]

How I Still Get 8 Hours of Sleep in College

Written by    Apr 15, 2019

Finals are upon us. Take care of yourself. I’m kind of known for being a grandma: I have a bedtime. At 9:30. I don’t like staying up, and I don’t like going through life tired, especially in school. I want to be able to do my best work, to pay attention, and most of all, to feel healthy. Sleep isn’t for the weak; I think you know […]

Ohio State Football’s Student Appreciation Day

Written by    Apr 1, 2019

As a lifelong Ohio State football fan, I’ve spent a lot of time appreciating the Buckeyes’ success in bowl games, their ability to bring in the best recruits, and their sheer domination of That School Up North. So it was great to find out that the football team takes one day out of the year to appreciate me and the rest of the student body. […]

Columbus Food Scene: Katalina’s

Written by    Apr 1, 2019

Last week one of my friends from Miami came up to visit during her spring break, and we went to Katalina’s, a brunch place I’ve been wanting to check out. Katalina’s is south of campus, located at the corner of West Third and Pennsylvania Avenue. It’s a tiny place with sharpie scribbled on the walls from customers. They serve Mexican food, which is my favorite. […]

Change of Pace

Written by    Apr 1, 2019

With the end of my freshman year (already) around the corner, I find myself looking back on what I’ve done and how things have changed since coming to Ohio State. One of the most memorable differences between high school life and college life (at least in terms of academics) is that everything happens faster here. A very important thing to remember about Ohio State is […]

Landing the Internship: Reflection

Written by    Mar 26, 2019

I’m thrilled to share that I’ve accepted an internship with Paycor in Cincinnati this summer. I’ll be working with their internal communications team on multiple initiatives and helping to plan Paycor’s annual sales kickoff. I couldn’t be happier, and I am so thankful to my parents, mentors, peers and professors who have helped me through this process. It looks simple and easy when students start […]
