My first (and last) Michigan game

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

This was definitely one of my favorite weekends ever. As I’ve mentioned before in other blog posts, I was never a football person until I came here. I was in marching band in high school, so I attended every single football game for my school … and I didn’t pay attention to a single one of them. Then I came here and I became super […]

Stories from a football school

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I chose to go to a football school. That isn’t to say that my school is not strong in academics, research, and global impact; actually, it’s great in all of those too. I just mean that football is such an integral part of life at Ohio State that you can’t get by without it, and it contributes a lot to the student experience. I grew […]

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 […]

5 things that are “worth it”

Written by    Jun 7, 2018

Around summertime, especially if you’re an incoming freshman, you have a lot of emails coming in about a lot of decisions you need to make. What meal plan, where you’ll live, if you’ll life with someone you know, what classes to take, yada yada yada. It’s hard to decide what choices you should take a risk on, and with what choices you should just go […]

Senior Week

Written by    May 24, 2018

At the end of the semester, I usually found myself leaving campus as quickly as possible, but with graduation and training for my internship, I got to see and experience all of the craziness that happens during a senior’s final week as a student. The week kicked off with a craft night, where seniors were invited to decorate their caps. As you can see, mine […]

My school is beautiful: An appreciation post

Written by    May 16, 2018

One of the things I’m absolutely passionate about is photography. This year, I’ve loved being able to walk to dozens of gorgeous shooting places, whether that be buildings, natural scenery, or just generally aesthetically-pleasing backgrounds. I know lots of students factor in “location and look” to their college choice, and I have a feeling that big city schools don’t get the appreciation they deserve. In high […]

Where, Oh Where, Has Rylan Been?

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Hi Y’all! It’s me, Rylan. Yes, I’m alive(?)! I’ve been a little absent from the blog this semester, and I wanted to explain why. Hopefully, in the process, I might also shed some light on the possibilities of student life at OSU and the art of being busy (which are both more apt topics than me simply venting about my routine). Here’s what I’ve been up […]

Ways to Make A Difference

Written by    Mar 21, 2018

One of the great things about attending Ohio State is the opportunity to discover causes that call you to action! There’s something for everyone to stand behind, and one of the causes I find myself gravitating toward is cancer research. Two of my favorite ways to make a difference are through participating in the Ohio State 4 Miler and in BuckeyeThon.

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.
