Finding Refuge During Midterms

Written by    Mar 14, 2017

Today I’m going to talk about midterms. You may think this post would have been more appropriate if I had written it last week, when I had three midterms in a span of two days. The reason I couldn’t do that was because I was too busy studying for my midterms. Go figure. So, midterms are rough, yes, and they require a lot of studying, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why I love Ohio State

Written by    Feb 27, 2017

Exactly one year ago I accepted my invitation to be part of The Ohio State University class of 2020. Part of me can’t believe how long ago that seems and how much I feel like I have changed. I am no longer a high school student with really not a care in a world, but now a college student who is paving her way to […]

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 […]

Time For a Vacation

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Second semester has been stressful! I am sure I am not alone in saying that. New classes, new professors, new organizations to join and also finding a suitable rooming situation for next year have made second semester busy. That’s why I decided to go on a vacation last weekend. I decided on New Orleans, an essential American city to which I had not yet visited. […]

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 […]
