What’s a two day weekend?

Written by    Sep 11, 2018

I’m spoiled. It’s my third semester at The Ohio State University, and I’ve never had a full week of classes. Semester one, my classes were Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday; semester two, Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday; and now, I only have classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Thus, I’ve never had a weekend that’s only two days. To be clear, I know this isn’t possible for every student, but I do know that the odds are […]

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 […]

The best decision I made freshman year

Written by    Feb 12, 2018

You probably hear a lot of scheduling advice. Don’t take any 8 a.m.s! Don’t take online classes, you’re lying to yourself if you think you’ll do the work! Schedule all your classes close together!

New Year, New Schedule

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

Last semester, I found myself extremely envious of the students with “dream” schedules. I, on the other hand, hated my schedule. Most days, I began classes around 9:30 in the morning (at least I didn’t have any 8 a.m. classes) and finished a little after 5 in the afternoon. This semester, I totally revamped my schedule in order to have a long weekend. I’m happy […]

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 […]

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 […]
