Written by    Mar 26, 2019

I’m thrilled to share that I’ve accepted an internship with Paycor in Cincinnati this summer. I’ll be working with their internal communications team on multiple initiatives and helping to plan Paycor’s annual sales kickoff.

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 […]

How Do I Navigate Study Abroad?

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

The piece of advice I’ve heard the most from people post-grad is, “study abroad.” Ohio State offers a huge variety and number of programs, and college is one of the most affordable times to do it because there are so many resources for students. I’m hoping to study abroad in Italy in May, so this semester I’ve been going through the process of figuring out […]

How to “do it all” and still get 8 hours of sleep

Written by    Jul 31, 2018

College is overwhelming. There are lots of opportunities that you are encouraged to try, lots of difficult classes that take up much of your personal time, and not as much money in your pocket as you are used to. Trust me, I get it: I am currently a pre-med double major who works two jobs, volunteers each week, studies for the MCAT and serves as president […]

I thought this seemed like a great concept and hoped to go this year. Meanwhile, I am also a mentor for my Scholars program, so I have a group of five […]

Ask a Senior: Was Ohio State the Right Place?

Written by    Jul 6, 2017

Every time my mom drove me home freshman year, she asked me, “Do you think Ohio State was the right place for you to go?” My reply was always something along the lines of, “I like it at Ohio State, but I don’t know if it means that I wouldn’t be happy anywhere else.” I graduated from Ohio State this May. After graduation, my mom asked […]
