Restaurant Reviews, Part 2: Rush Bowls

Written by    Feb 6, 2019

For a long time, the part of Lane Avenue that represented Ohio State’s northern border stretching from High Street to the Schottenstein Arena didn’t have much new to offer students. Stores, restaurants, and housing had been in the same spot for a long time without change, but in the last few years Lane saw some new life with the addition of new apartment complexes and this […]

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 […]

College in the north . . . during winter

Written by    Jan 14, 2019

Okay, I know Ohio isn’t everyone’s dream state. I had high school friends leave to go to college in Tampa, Savannah, Nashville, South Carolina, California . . . places where it’s warm. And it’s around this time of year that I ask classmates who came here from LA or Florida why they chose to come to Ohio. Well, first and foremost, it’s because tOSU is the best university […]

Columbus Music Scene: Hippo Campus

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

When I was searching for colleges a few years ago, I knew I wanted to be in a city. At home I live 15 minutes away from downtown Cincinnati, and I knew I couldn’t survive at a school where the nearest Target was an hour (or even more than 20 minutes, really) away. A huge plus about being in a city is the music scene. […]

Columbus Food Scene: North Market

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

The Short North, which is just south of campus along High Street, is home to some of Columbus’ best restaurants. If you want a one-stop-shop packed with tons of delicious food from a variety of restaurants, however, you should try the North Market. Last weekend, we celebrated my friend’s birthday and went out to dinner with a big group of girls. North Market is the […]

Thank you, Ohio State

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

It seems the sun is finally setting on my time here at The Ohio State University. During my final semester as a student, I have been taking more time than usual to reflect on my college journey. It all started on an airplane. I was trying to decide between Ohio State and another university. I wrote down all the pros and cons for each school […]

Women Empowerment through Film

Written by    Mar 26, 2018

I saw Black Panther just one week after its initial release. Clearly, you’d think I’d have to pay an outrageous price for my movie ticket…WRONG! I purchased my ticket for only $3! How is this possible?? Well, the Office of Student Life has an awesome program called D-Tix (Discount Ticket Program).   Through D-Tix, Ohio State students have the ability to purchase reduced priced tickets […]

Opportunities for Creativity

Written by    Mar 8, 2018

Being a creative person with a busy schedule is proving to be a very hard task. With assignments, projects, papers, and work deadlines, I rarely find time to create art just for myself. But I’ve found some spots for creativity in the strangest places.

Fall Semester Memories

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.
