Buckeyes Abroad: Barcelona

Written by    Oct 7, 2019

Barcelona was more touristy and less beach-y than I expected; for example, the famous Las Ramblas street was crowded at all times of day and night. Still, it was a neat place to explore! I personally found Barcelona not as quaint or beautiful as Madrid (read all about my Madrid trip here), but it is still an amazing city! If you go to Barcelona, you […]

Buckeyes Abroad: Madrid

Written by    Oct 7, 2019

In August I traveled to Madrid, a vibrant city with rich history and thriving culture. Madrid has beautiful architecture — every alley, every portico, every plaza is out of a movie— and it’s easy to navigate on foot. We stayed right next to the Prado Museum, one of the world’s finest art museums, and we spent several hours there our first day. It’s free for […]

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. […]

Restaurant Reviews, Part 2: Rush Bowls

Written by    Feb 6, 2019

For a long time, the part of Lane Avenue that represented Ohio State’s northern border stretching from High Street to the Schottenstein Arena didn’t have much new to offer students. Stores, restaurants, and housing had been in the same spot for a long time without change, but in the last few years Lane saw some new life with the addition of new apartment complexes and this […]

Saying Goodbye Pt. 1: The Last Semester Bucket List

Written by    Feb 4, 2019

It’s crazy, and it’s weird, and it’s a little (read: a lot) sad–I’ve come to my last semester of college. There’s a lot to say simply about coming to this point (and I plan to get to that soon). But for right now, I want to alleviate some of the winter blues by making a “Last Semester at Ohio State” bucket list of things to do […]

How to thrive on the Gray 10 dining plan

Written by    Feb 4, 2019

I, like many of my friends, switched to the Gray 10 dining plan to save a little money this semester. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the 10, some saying it’s the right amount, some saying it’s just not enough. But the Scarlet 14 was just too many meals for me, and I wondered why I was paying for excess. In these past few weeks, I’ve […]

Two Thumbs up for Poke Bros

Written by    Jan 29, 2019

Living off campus, I spend a lot of time scouting out the best places to eat on High Street when I don’t feel like cooking for myself. Earlier this month, searching for good food became a little bit easier when Poke Bros opened across from north campus, enabling me to walk to the restaurant pretty much in a straight line from my house. Although there were […]

You are What You Eat (Pt. III)

Written by    Jan 29, 2019

What’s one thing all college students have in common? We’re always hungry. One of my favorite meals is from the rice bowl station at Curl Market. For $7.95 (five cents shy of a swipe) you can get a pretty substantial and yummy meal. I order rice, chicken, lettuce, carrots, edamame and cucumbers. They also offer mushrooms, tofu and scallions. I don’t like my bowl drenched […]

A Tasty Night

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I went to my first OUAB event of the year recently, and this one was different than any other one I had been to before. Claire King, the head chef for Buzzfeed’s Tasty came to talk about how she ended up working at Buzzfeed and how they make those super-fast cooking demonstrations that take over your Facebook feed. When I got to the event, I was […]

5 things that are “worth it”

Written by    Jun 7, 2018

Around summertime, especially if you’re an incoming freshman, you have a lot of emails coming in about a lot of decisions you need to make. What meal plan, where you’ll live, if you’ll life with someone you know, what classes to take, yada yada yada. It’s hard to decide what choices you should take a risk on, and with what choices you should just go […]
