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.

Buckeye Everything! Part One

Written by    Mar 8, 2018

One of the best parts about going to Ohio State is the amount of Buckeye-inspired food on and around campus. I love chocolate and peanut butter, so I have a lot of fun trying the different Buckeye foods!

Wait – Fisher Just Impacted Food Insecurity

Written by    Nov 17, 2017

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.
