AU18 Review of Non-Major Classes

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

If you’re a communication major, you should read my previous post. But if you’re curious about other classes, keep reading. HUMNTR 2210—Human Nutrition online with Angela Collene This semester I took my last science class ever, which I am thrilled about.

AU18 Review of Major Classes

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

Three semesters down and four to go! I took 17 credit hours this semester, so it was pretty crazy. I really enjoyed my Communication classes this semester; they helped confirm that strategic communication is the best major for me. COMM 2367—Persuasive Communication with Kristie Sigler I took this class as a major requirement, but there were also a lot of non-comm majors in the class […]

#Finalsszn Complaints and Study Suggestions

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

I get annoyed during #finalsszn because the libraries are packed. I frequent the library just about every day of the semester — I have my routine; I have my favorite spots; I get in, do homework, get out. So when everyone decides they have to buckle down and study for a few days, I get frustrated that they’re taking up my spots.  It’s like January […]

You can RESERVE a study room?

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

In today’s edition of Things I Should Have Realized Before Now: you can reserve a study room at any campus library at any time, including finals week. I didn’t know about this until a friend texted me and said she reserved a study room for our friend group during finals week. I’ve always avoided going to the libraries during finals because I know they’re packed, and I […]

Senior Week

Written by    May 24, 2018

At the end of the semester, I usually found myself leaving campus as quickly as possible, but with graduation and training for my internship, I got to see and experience all of the craziness that happens during a senior’s final week as a student. The week kicked off with a craft night, where seniors were invited to decorate their caps. As you can see, mine […]

Where (and where NOT) to study

Written by    May 1, 2018

Alright guys, it’s game time. Finals are coming up (and you’re going to KILL IT). But in order to do well, you need to find the right place to study. Ask any student, and you’ll get the cliche answers: “I like to study at Thompson!” “You should study at the 18th avenue library.” “I prefer using the study rooms in my dorm.” Well, these are […]

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 […]
