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 […]

Student Research: What To Expect

Written by    Jun 28, 2017

Undergraduate student research has been one of the absolute greatest things I have done during my time at Ohio State. When I was a wee little freshman just a few short years ago, you wouldn’t have been able to convince me that I would be full-time student research assistant and getting published in REAL medical journals by age 20. There are many things I didn’t […]

Numerous Research Resources

Written by    Apr 17, 2017

This semester, I’m in a history class that requires us to write a few essays analyzing articles from historical newspapers. I cringed a little when I read this in the syllabus, imagining me sitting in Thompson Library for hours with newspapers strewn all around me, searching for the perfect article. Luckily, Ohio State gives us access to an online database that eliminates the need for […]

Working in the Language Lab

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Have you ever been to the COSI Electricity Show? You know, the one where a man with a microphone says a lot of crazy things about electricity and proceeds to make someone’s hair stand up? From a young age, I wanted to be that person up on COSI’s stage with a microphone. I might not have a microphone, but ten years later, I have found myself on COSI’s […]

Election Anxiety

Written by    Nov 7, 2016

This election is extremely weird in so many ways. It can be explained in this paradox: I am not excited about the person I voted for but it was also one of the easiest choices I have ever had to make. I am not writing this to change anyone’s minds or to dis the other side; plenty of my friends support Drumpf and that is […]
