Things We College Students Live For

Written by    Oct 31, 2017

There are a variety of things that keep us going at OSU. Dogs on Campus. We’re looking at you, OSU4paws. Literally everyone wants to pet your dogs. Thank you for blessing us with them in our classes. Free delivery. It may not be even food we generally like. But when a restaurant advertises that they bring it to your door for free? Suddenly, that food is the […]

Halloween on a College Budget

Written by    Oct 31, 2017

Everyone wants to celebrate Halloween, but no college student wants to fork over money for a costume. What could be better than three costume ideas that won’t cost you a dime? These three ideas can be made from things you probably already have in your closet: 1. Katniss Everdeen Tuck a black shirt into a pair of olive green pants, throw on a leather jacket […]

An Evening with Leslie Odom Jr.

Written by    Oct 25, 2017

If you’ve read my previous blog posts, you probably know that I love OUAB’s (Ohio Union Activities Board) events where they bring celebrities to Ohio State (and all of the events are free!). If you know me in real life and/or follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I love “Hamilton”. So this past weekend I got to attend an event that combined two […]

Making the most of your BuckID

Written by    Oct 19, 2017

During freshman orientation, be sure to put on your best smile! You will be getting your photo taken for your BuckID! While attending The Ohio State University, you will need your BuckID pretty much everywhere you go. At first, it can be challenging figuring out how to use this 3.25 x 2 inch card. Before you know it, you’ll become a BuckID master!   Most […]

Self Reflection Blog-Ception

Written by    Oct 12, 2017

(Really, that could be the title of any of my blogs.) Ahh, Fisher. Fisher College of Business. That sweet, sweet haven; the home of baby CEOs and investment bankers. Cool, cool, cool stuff. Fisher, forming its baby CEOs and bankers and networkers – they’re the people on the path to success, right? They are learning all that it takes to be on that path of […]

Fun and Games (and a Surprise Parade!)

Written by    Oct 12, 2017

Last year, I heard about a cool place in the Short North called Kingmakers. For $5, you could choose from a huge collection of board games and play for hours on end with your friends. I thought this seemed like a great concept and hoped to go this year. Meanwhile, I am also a mentor for my Scholars program, so I have a group of five […]

The Problem with High Achievers (oh, come on, this is nothing new)

Written by    Sep 26, 2017

Ironclad. That’s what we all want to be, right? Ironclad, strong and glad, internally very sad. No, not really. Those were just great rhymes. But as my sophomore year schedule picked up, I realized that I was somewhat addicted to protecting myself with an iron shield. I could feel myself becoming detaching from emotions to increase my productivity: don’t think, don’t feel, just work. That’s […]

Week 1: Getting to know campus

Written by    Sep 26, 2017

If you’re a fellow out-of-stater like myself, or are simply unfamiliar with OSU, you may arrive on campus knowing where exactly nothing is located. Since I showed up here with only a vague sense of where several buildings were, I made the best of my confusion by exploring campus.

Gameday Guidelines

Written by    Sep 20, 2017

Aside from academics, football Saturdays might be Ohio State’s biggest selling point to potential students. There are not many schools in the nation where 100,000 people gather nearly every week to watch one of the best college football teams in the nation (our loss to Oklahoma notwithstanding. A brief setback is all it was, promise.) And while the games are steeped in traditions like the […]
