Major Change, Part Two

Written by    Apr 10, 2018

Last semester, I changed my major from international studies to social work. It was definitely a nerve-wracking decision, and there’s still the possibility that things could change and I could change my mind again, but I do feel confident that my decision was a good one. That isn’t because I’m 100% set on a specific career, but because I’ve had the chance to learn more […]

Please study for your midterms

Written by    Apr 4, 2018

About halfway through the semester (or to be more realistic, two weeks in), you’ll come upon the dreaded and aptly named “midterm exams.” Now at this point, you’ll say, “Dude, I got this. I’ve gone to every class so far (I haven’t even skipped ONCE), I get what’s going on in the class (or at least I get the gist of it), and it’s just a […]

Bouncing back from a bad grade

Written by    Mar 12, 2018

I’m like a lot of other OSU students: straight A’s in high school, top of the class, perfectionist, etc etc. So naturally, I got to college and told myself I wasn’t going to change that. I set the same painfully high standards for myself as I did for the last four years of education. I thought it would be just as simple in college as […]

Prioritizing

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

One of the aspects of college life that I’ve struggled with most lately has been prioritizing. By this, I mean deciding what tasks and activities are important enough to actually be included in my daily agenda (because there’s no possible way to fit everything that I want to accomplish into a single day). Lately, homework and sleep have been my priorities; homework for obvious reasons, […]

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! No, spread out your classes! Don’t you DARE take physics and chem in the same semester! Well, I have the best piece of scheduling advice for you, and I know it’s the best from […]

Minoring: a want or a need?

Written by    Feb 6, 2018

When you’re heading to college, a lot of the focus is on your major. Often times, minors are pushed under the rug and completely forgotten about. Are they necessary? What’s the point? What should I minor in? Should I even get a minor? Lots of questions, one underwhelming answer: minors are whatever you want them to be. There are tons of reasons for you to choose a […]

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 […]

Accepted to Grad School!

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

Last week I found out that I was accepted into Ohio State’s Doctor of Audiology graduate program! I’ve loved being in undergrad at Ohio State and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to continue going to school here. Applying to grad school was a lot of work, and I couldn’t have done it on my own, so I’m thankful for everyone at Ohio State who […]

Unexpected Interest

Written by    Jan 22, 2018

Imagine if you will… In all seriousness, do imagine the scenario I’m about to post. In order to graduate, you need a few credit hours in classes that aren’t part of your major or minor. So, you look over the catalogue. Nothing really interests you, but you have to choose something.  So, you blindfold yourself and take the dart . . . No? Very well. […]
