Everybody was Stage Combat Fightin’

Written by    Jan 2, 2018

Last spring, the Ohio State Department of Theatre announced that one of the grad students would teach an advanced movement-based stage combat class, and you can bet I was down for the chance to channel my inner James Bond.

Is it Christmas yet?

Written by    Dec 15, 2017

The end of a semester is a weird time. It feels like half your friends already finished their exams and are relaxing at home, while the rest of you are still stress-crying because how are you going to pass the Dendranthopology 6590 final? (Side note, dendranthopology no longer exists, if you were wondering what that was. A few centuries back, it was the study based on […]

Learning to Study

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

In high school, I learned how to study. Having taken six AP courses my senior year, I had to learn how to effectively use my time to give adequate attention to each of my classes. When I came to college, however, I made a lot of friends who had not had a similar experience. For them, studying was an “occasional” and “maybe if I feel […]

Finding Your Motivation

Written by    Nov 28, 2017

The hardest part about coming back from break is getting back into the swing of things. It’s especially difficult when you know that there’s only two more weeks to go until fall semester is over, and then you get to sleep in and not think about classes or exams for three whole weeks. That’s a great thought, but before we can get to break, we […]

I Do Really Well in a Really Hard Class

Written by    May 9, 2017

It’s January. To be specific, it’s the first day of school after a long and difficult autumn semester, one which freaked me out so much I dropped all my honors classes except one in exchange for regular classes. I’m in Jennings Hall for a 9 a.m. Math 1172 class. The next class in my calculus series after the one I skated through and disappointed myself in […]

I learned my lesson

Written by    May 1, 2017

Last semester, the first time I picked up my calculus textbook was six days before the final. All semester, since my lecturer was a little dull, and since it was a class I had already technically taken (Calc 1 and 2), I didn’t feel I needed to study as much. This was a feeling I carried all semester, until seven days before the final when […]

A Woke Study Break!

Written by    Apr 27, 2017

So, with finals coming around the corner, my study breaks have been unhealthy Netflix binges (and I’m watching literal trash, so that makes it worse). I decided to try to find shorter, more stress-relieving study break material. So, I turned to “Milk and Honey” by Rupi Kaur, a book of modern, feminist poetry. But wait! Don’t rule it out because it’s poetry. I hate that […]

We’re Almost There!

Written by    Apr 20, 2017

With only two days of classes left in the school year, it’s hard to believe that this year flew by so quickly. Whether you’re finishing your very first year of college or you’re graduating, it’s important to study for your finals, de-stress, and don’t forget to continue making memories! The year isn’t over yet; there’s still time to have fun with your friends before you […]

Best Study Places on Campus

Written by    Apr 4, 2017

Its the final stretch of the year–yay! Whether you still have a few last minute midterms to knock out like I did yesterday (biochemistry and organic chemistry–yuck), a paper or two, or you are getting a big head start on finals season, choosing the right study spots for what you need to get done is essential.

The End is Near

Written by    Apr 4, 2017

How is it possible that the year is almost over? With under 30 days left, it’s important to make every single one count, Buckeyes. We’ve almost made it. For some of us, it’s our first experience here at Ohio State, and for some others, this is the last.
