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 […]

Written by    Dec 15, 2017

Since I’m graduating in the spring, I just finished my last undergraduate fall semester ever. I can’t believe how fast the time went! Fall semester is so much fun because everyone has so much energy for the new school year, and I was just thinking about some favorite memories from each of my fall semesters, so I wanted to share them with you.

An Exciting Announcement

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Eek!! (substitute whatever noise of excitement most tickles your whiskers). As of last week, I officially tacked on my second minor: Film Studies. More than just being able to minor is something of interest, this was an exciting moment for me because it officially marks my career shift. When I came to The Ohio State University, I was certain I wanted to be an English […]

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 […]

NEW Leadership Ohio: A Conference on Women in Politics

Written by    Jun 6, 2017

This summer, I engaged in one of the best opportunities of my life through the NEW Leadership Ohio Conference on Women in Politics. For a week at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, I worked with my female peers and community leaders in order to learn and explore the “mysterious” political sector. In particular, we learned about what it means to run for public […]

Loving my Summer Internship

Written by    Jun 1, 2017

Working in healthcare has never been a dream of mine. Most of my colleagues have really interesting stories about how they were personally effected by the healthcare system in some way and that is what inspired them to join. My reason is simple: they offered me a paid internship out of high school. Even though I took the position for what may be the wrong reasons, […]
