College Misconception #1: You’ll Have No Time

Written by    Oct 12, 2017

In high school, teachers, adults and even older students seemed to fill our brains with warnings and college horror stories. Lots of conversations in high school contained sentences like “enjoy your time now, you won’t have it in college” or “you aren’t prepared for how much you’ll have to do in college”. I made the common assumption that no one has time in college, and […]

7 Things I Learned in My First Week at OSU

Written by    Sep 26, 2017

The first week of college…You’ve probably spent a good portion of your life dreaming about what it would be like when you finally moved out and were on your own. However, expectations are almost always different from reality. I definitely learned more than seven things during my first week as an Ohio State Buckeye, but here are the seven I found to be the most […]

What I have learned since the second semester started: academic-wise.

Written by    Jan 30, 2017

This second semester has been severe—I have 8 a.m. classes, which I totally did not intend to do so, and my schedule is poorly distributed with four classes on Wednesdays and Fridays, but only one on Tuesdays. And I would love to share what it has been and what I learned from last three weeks. 8 a.m. is not so bad: I was devastated to […]

Online Classes: Learning in Your Pajamas

Written by    Jan 27, 2017

If you had asked me six months ago what I thought about taking a class online, I probably would have shrugged and said I didn’t feel like it was for me. However, by way of recommendation from a friend and scheduling conflict, I’m currently in two online courses: CSE 2111 and Anthropology 2200. Three weeks in, here’s what I’ve learned (besides how to write a […]

New Semester, New You?

Written by    Jan 19, 2017

Last semester’s grades got you down? Feeling unsure about your major or what you want to do for the rest of your life? Lost and insecure (you found me, you found me…sorry, I had to.) about yourself in general? Take a breather. You’re not alone! Lucky for you, Ohio State realizes that almost everyone goes through this, myself included. There’s tons of resources right on […]

New *Semester*, New Me

Written by    Jan 9, 2017

Ugh…it’s time to accept that winter break is over. There’s nothing to be done to make it last any longer (besides skipping your classes–but don’t do that, folks). I’m not one for big, sweeping new year’s resolutions. But, on the eve of a new semester, I’ve found myself considering a few changes I’d like to make so that this semester is better than the last.

Am I on the right path?

Written by    Nov 8, 2016

You’re eighteen. You’re in college. You’re an adult. Now choose what you want to do for the rest of your life. This mindset has been engraved in my brain for years now. I’ve always had the preconception that, magically, when I became eighteen and made my way to a big, adult university, that I would have the exact major in mind, with an exact career […]

Stress, anxiety and fun

Written by    Sep 21, 2016

College is unbelievably fun. Almost everyday there is something new to do and experience. At the same time, we all have classes that are very stressful. I know for me it has been very hard to study. Even when I do the necessary precautions such as going to the library, leaving my phone behind and sitting up straight, I still have found myself constantly daydreaming […]

Planning is for the amateurs

Written by    Sep 16, 2016

I was so excited when I came to campus because I thought “Hey! I don’t have to exercise; I’ll just walk everywhere!” And this worked out great for the first few days. The weather was nice, homework was light, and the optimism of an active lifestyle was still fresh. But what happens when it’s raining, or you overslept, or you need TEN more minutes on […]
