Wait – Fisher Just Impacted Food Insecurity

Written by    Nov 17, 2017

“People don’t like reading long things,” they’d say. I’d hear the echoes around me, or in my head when I’d sit down to write: “Use short paragraphs, and don’t write too much. This will be cool,” they’d whisper, “This will be fun.” Well, y’all, fine. This blog will be a little shorter than my normal ones. Mostly because as I write this, I have to […]

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Gameday Guidelines

Written by    Sep 20, 2017

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. A brief setback is all it was, promise.) And while the games are steeped in traditions like the […]

What Meal Plan Should I Get?

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. And there’s still leftovers…and I’m still eating them. (Don’t tell anyone, […]
