Written by    Mar 6, 2017

One of the most difficult parts of the housing selection process for me last year was choosing which meal plan to get. As an incoming freshman who knew a total of five people going to Ohio State, I did not have many people to ask. After changing my meal plan five times during that first week of school, I thought I would offer some advice to any […]

5 Things to Do Instead of Eating Leftover Sweets

Written by    Dec 29, 2016

I have a strong suspicion that I’m not alone in saying that winter break has equated to me eating a lot less healthily, to put it politely. And, after recently celebrating Christmas, the situation escalated drastically. I spent the entire day after Christmas eating, and only one thing wasn’t some form of leftover dessert.
