BuckeyeThon 2019

Written by    Feb 11, 2019

FOR THE KIDS!!! That’s BuckeyeThon’s motto and driving mission. BuckeyeThon is the annual 24 hour dance marathon to fight pediatric cancer by raising money to fund research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This year more than 2,000 Buckeyes raised over $1.7 million. In November students sign up, join a team and pledge to raise at least $250 for the cure. This may sound like a lot, […]

The Unexpected Weekend

Written by    Feb 5, 2019

My parents, both Ohio State alumni, have about 10 years between them of going to Ohio State. Yet, throughout those years, neither of them ever had school called off on account of weather. There were no snow days for college students when they went here, and cold days weren’t even a thing back then. So imagine my surprise last Tuesday when I received an alert […]

My First Rec. Fitness Class

Written by    Jan 15, 2019

I hate going to the gym. Walking in the doors gives me anxiety; so many things are happening, everybody is working hard, and they can all tell that I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m told over and over that no one cares what other people do at the gym, but I always feel like everyone is looking at me. I’m uncomfortable for the whole […]

Match Day is where students are paired with a professional in their desired field and get to shadow them for a day. Kevin is a business consulting team manager at Nationwide […]

Poetry in Columbus

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

If you’re not an English major, this is probably really lame. You might as well click out of this post now. It might be a bit random and not something many people think about (or care about, if I’m honest with myself), but Columbus has a great poetry scene. There are readings happening all the time around the city, and constant readings on campus as […]

How do we keep making it?

Written by    Sep 11, 2018

There is a peculiar moment in your college experience when you realize that time is somehow and suddenly both fleeting and stagnant. Hear me out. These things that you’ve worked so hard to establish – the academics, the clubs – they feel sort of tedious, a little mundane. Routine. But getting closer and closer to the real world feels much too daunting. I can’t think […]

Cap and Gown Time

Written by    May 1, 2018

A few weeks ago, I bought my cap and gown for graduation! I know many of the readers of this blog are prospective students, but graduation comes around a lot quicker than you might think, so I thought I’d tell you about the cap and gown buying process anyway.

Where, Oh Where, Has Rylan Been?

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Hi Y’all! It’s me, Rylan. Yes, I’m alive(?)! I’ve been a little absent from the blog this semester, and I wanted to explain why. Hopefully, in the process, I might also shed some light on the possibilities of student life at OSU and the art of being busy (which are both more apt topics than me simply venting about my routine). Here’s what I’ve been up […]

Prioritizing

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

One of the aspects of college life that I’ve struggled with most lately has been prioritizing. By this, I mean deciding what tasks and activities are important enough to actually be included in my daily agenda (because there’s no possible way to fit everything that I want to accomplish into a single day). Lately, homework and sleep have been my priorities; homework for obvious reasons, […]

I went to John Mulaney’s show and my dreams came true

Written by    Jan 16, 2018

In case you didn’t know, comedian John Mulaney came to OSU and had a show in the Wexner Center for the Arts on his Kid Gorgeous tour. You should also know that I absolutely love John. So my lovely friend Rose brought me to his show with second row, front and center tickets. For the past month, I’ve been joking about being the person in the crowd that […]
