A smart way to make a little extra cash

Written by    May 31, 2018

I just got a check in the mail from Ohio State. Would you like one? Ohio State does this really cool thing where you can help others, help yourself and make money all at the same time. If you have a student with a disability in your class and they request a note-taker, any classmate can do it. All you do is take thorough notes […]

Senior Week

Written by    May 24, 2018

At the end of the semester, I usually found myself leaving campus as quickly as possible, but with graduation and training for my internship, I got to see and experience all of the craziness that happens during a senior’s final week as a student. The week kicked off with a craft night, where seniors were invited to decorate their caps. As you can see, mine […]

My school is beautiful: An appreciation post

Written by    May 16, 2018

One of the things I’m absolutely passionate about is photography. This year, I’ve loved being able to walk to dozens of gorgeous shooting places, whether that be buildings, natural scenery, or just generally aesthetically-pleasing backgrounds. I know lots of students factor in “location and look” to their college choice, and I have a feeling that big city schools don’t get the appreciation they deserve. In high […]

Endless Opportunities

Written by    May 1, 2018

Although I’m only a First Year student, I already feel so many doors have been opened for me here at THE Ohio State University. When transitioning from high school to college, it’s easy to think some things are meant to be left in the past. However, I’ve found I’m still able to express myself through the endless opportunities this university has to offer. As I’ve […]

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 […]

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 […]

Women Empowerment through Film

Written by    Mar 26, 2018

I saw Black Panther just one week after its initial release. Clearly, you’d think I’d have to pay an outrageous price for my movie ticket…WRONG! I purchased my ticket for only $3! How is this possible?? Well, the Office of Student Life has an awesome program called D-Tix (Discount Ticket Program).   Through D-Tix, Ohio State students have the ability to purchase reduced priced tickets […]

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.
