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.

The College Guide to Juggling

Written by    Nov 27, 2017

Howdy! Alright, so plot twist: I don’t actually know how to juggle–at least not in the literal sense (I’m still getting over the loss of my circus career). But, I do know a thing or two about life juggling.

Fashionably #ForTheKids

Written by    Nov 8, 2017

I’m no expert when it comes to fashion, but I knew BuckeyeThon’s annual fashion show benefiting the kids of Nationwide Children’s Hospital would not require me to be one in order to have a great time supporting the kids. And I wasn’t wrong. 🙂

An Exciting Announcement

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Eek!! (substitute whatever noise of excitement most tickles your whiskers). As of last week, I officially tacked on my second minor: Film Studies.

When I came to The Ohio State University, I was certain I wanted to be an English […]

Gameday Guidelines

Written by    Sep 20, 2017

Aside from academics, football Saturdays might be Ohio State’s biggest selling point to potential students. There are not many schools in the nation where 100,000 people gather nearly every week to watch one of the best college football teams in the nation (our loss to Oklahoma notwithstanding. A brief setback is all it was, promise.) And while the games are steeped in traditions like the […]
