Why Ohio State Engineering?

Written by    Mar 21, 2017

Since March is a pretty pivotal month for college decisions, I really want to focus on potential incoming engineers. I was fortunate enough to have a few people to give me student advice, and I want to add my opinion to the mix, both because I don’t think the university description quite covers it, and I’m just selfish like that. If you’re anything like me, […]

Finding Refuge During Midterms

Written by    Mar 14, 2017

Today I’m going to talk about midterms. You may think this post would have been more appropriate if I had written it last week, when I had three midterms in a span of two days. The reason I couldn’t do that was because I was too busy studying for my midterms. Go figure. So, midterms are rough, yes, and they require a lot of studying, […]

Murphy’s Law and Freshman Robotics

Written by    Mar 6, 2017

Yesterday, four hours into a group meeting with my Fundamentals of Engineering Honors robot group, I had a realization. Fiddling with erector pieces, looking at a robot that could not even drive properly, let alone execute the graded task that it had to perfect in less than 24 hours, I said. “It seems like whatever can go wrong, will go wrong with this stupid thing.” […]

Real Life Experience Outside the Classroom

Written by    Feb 23, 2017

This semester, I’m in an audiology class for my major, where we learn all about how to test people’s hearing and the different types of hearing problems they might have. I’m really interested in audiology, so I was already excited to take the class. But I was even more excited to find out that we’d actually get to test someone’s hearing as part of the […]

Howdy folks! Well, it’s just about halfway through the semester, which means I’m in the thick of all my classes. As an English major taking 18 credit hours, this means…you guessed it, a lot of reading! (Like, a lot, a lot of reading).

Living on Campus: How to Choose Your Residence Hall

Written by    Feb 21, 2017

If you’re reading this, I’m going to assume one of two things: you’re an incoming freshman and you JUST CAN’T WAIT to decide where you’re going to live (!!!!!!!) or you’re an incoming freshman and you REALLY REALLY REALLY HAVE NO IDEA where you’re going to live. Both are great situations to be in because LITERALLY EVERYBODY that is new to college is wondering the […]

Cute Things I Find When I Should Be Doing Other Things

Written by    Feb 13, 2017

Hello, friends! Happy Monday! As midterms have started to hit (hard), I just wanted to share with you all a couple of cute little pick-me-ups that I’ve stumbled upon in the past couple of weeks. The first was for a club I’m in called “TEDx” (we organize TEDx talks on campus with Ohio State affiliated speakers). During the involvement fair, a certain someone showed up […]

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 […]

Resource Profile: The Writing Center

Written by    Feb 6, 2017

Welp, Ohio State has this incredible thing called the Writing Center. It’s purrrdy great, if you ask me. However, I think it is a pretty under-used resource on campus that many people could really benefit from if they knew more about it. I am admittedly biased on this matter since I am currently taking a class in preparation to work in the writing center. BUT…that […]
