The Truth About RAs: Real Talk

Written by    Mar 9, 2017

Movies do a really poor job of showing us what resident advisors are like; they’re portrayed as no fun, stuck-up, and out to get residents at every turn. This couldn’t be more wrong. I have talked to a lot of people that dearly cherish their RA, and I myself have grown fond of mine. Especially now that many of my friends are getting ready to […]

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 […]

Free Sporting Events for the Best Fans in the Land!

Written by    Mar 6, 2017

We all know how important the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State is. Students live for that cold Saturday game against TTUN (That Team Up North). That is why I am proud to say that this year I watched Ohio State beat Michigan not once, but twice! That’s strange, you might be thinking, Ohio State only played Michigan once during the football season? But here’s a fun […]

Why I didn’t go random

Written by    Feb 27, 2017

When I first decided that I was going to attend Ohio State, I was very nervous about getting a roommate I wouldn’t get along with. I wanted someone who would be a good friend and a fun person to be with. I had heard mixed reviews for both going random and self selecting. Over the course of my first year, I have heard many of the […]

Living on Campus: How to Choose Your Residence Hall

Written by    Feb 21, 2017

If you’re reading this, I’m going to assume one of two things: you’re an incoming freshman and you JUST CAN’T WAIT to decide where you’re going to live (!!!!!!!) or you’re an incoming freshman and you REALLY REALLY REALLY HAVE NO IDEA where you’re going to live. Both are great situations to be in because LITERALLY EVERYBODY that is new to college is wondering the […]

Moneythink OSU

Written by    Feb 16, 2017

There are so many wonderful clubs here at Ohio State I find it difficult to decide which ones I want to join. That being said, when I hear about one that sparks my interest I try to give it a shot. This was the case with Moneythink. My roommate/BFF told me about this organization that goes to underprivileged schools and neighborhoods to teach students financial […]

Becoming an Ohioan

Written by    Feb 1, 2017

I feel as if I have lived in Ohio my whole life. Even though I am from New York, Ohio is without a doubt my new home. Recently, I have picked up a new game called euchre. It is commonly played by people in the Midwest and I had not heard of it before college. Since learning, I have quickly become hooked. I play usually […]

Squirrels on Campus: the underrepresented minority

Written by    Jan 23, 2017

As of autumn 2016, Ohio State enrolled* 6,437 foreign students, 1,308 veterans, 29,505 women, and 29,977 men. Among those enrolled, 5.4% were African American, 6.34% were Asian American, and 3.98% were Hispanic. Additionally, there is a large percentage of squirrels on campus. Though the least represented minority, the squirrels are arguably the most noticeable feature of Ohio State’s unique campus atmosphere. They add a certain vibrancy […]
