Columbus Music Scene: Hippo Campus

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

When I was searching for colleges a few years ago, I knew I wanted to be in a city. At home I live 15 minutes away from downtown Cincinnati, and I knew I couldn’t survive at a school where the nearest Target was an hour (or even more than 20 minutes, really) away. A huge plus about being in a city is the music scene. […]

Columbus Food Scene: North Market

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

The Short North, which is just south of campus along High Street, is home to some of Columbus’ best restaurants. If you want a one-stop-shop packed with tons of delicious food from a variety of restaurants, however, you should try the North Market. Last weekend, we celebrated my friend’s birthday and went out to dinner with a big group of girls. North Market is the […]

My first (and last) Michigan game

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

This was definitely one of my favorite weekends ever. As I’ve mentioned before in other blog posts, I was never a football person until I came here. I was in marching band in high school, so I attended every single football game for my school … and I didn’t pay attention to a single one of them. Then I came here and I became super […]

Stories from a football school

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I chose to go to a football school. That isn’t to say that my school is not strong in academics, research, and global impact; actually, it’s great in all of those too. I just mean that football is such an integral part of life at Ohio State that you can’t get by without it, and it contributes a lot to the student experience. I grew […]

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 […]
