Mass Media Research in the School of Communication

Written by    Apr 22, 2019

One of the best things about Ohio State is that it’s big enough for you to pursue anything — or everything — that interests you. This semester I was able to take an independent study course (Communication 4998) and participate in undergraduate research. Each semester the School of Communication emails a document with information from researchers seeking undergraduate assistants. I reached out to multiple faculty […]

Secrets of Thompson Library (Pt. II)

Written by    Apr 15, 2019

This is a continuation in the saga of how to access books from Thompson. How do I navigate the library’s website? Honestly I’m still figuring this out myself. For example, I wanted to read a book by Stephen King because I’ve never read Stephen King before. So I searched the library database by author. However it showed only one book was available … at Newark. […]

Ohio State’s Special Collections Library

Written by    Feb 25, 2019

Something I love about Ohio State is that no matter how long I’ve been here I’m always finding new things on campus. Today, I got a peek into the school’s special collections, which, as a lover of books and literature, is so freaking cool. They have exclusive and minimally-circulated works collected in the basement of Thompson, in a temperature-controlled room not open to the public—but you can reach […]

How to “do it all” and still get 8 hours of sleep

Written by    Jul 31, 2018

College is overwhelming. There are lots of opportunities that you are encouraged to try, lots of difficult classes that take up much of your personal time, and not as much money in your pocket as you are used to. Trust me, I get it: I am currently a pre-med double major who works two jobs, volunteers each week, studies for the MCAT and serves as president […]

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 […]
