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 […]

Creed Bratton at Ohio State

Written by    Mar 29, 2018

Last Friday, I was excited to add another celebrity to my list of famous people I’ve seen while attending Ohio State. The Buckeye Standup Comedy Club hosted their third annual Big Spring Show, and they brought Creed Bratton from The Office in to perform for it. I finally caught up with the rest of the world and watched The Office last summer, so I was thrilled […]

Learning from the police

Written by    Mar 27, 2018

Last Thursday, I went to one of my favorites event at Ohio State so far. I had heard of the student organization Sustained Dialogue at the beginning of the year, and I was intrigued by its mission of bringing opposing voices together for a constructive conversation. One of their biggest events is the annual police dialogue, where students who may have varying opinions of police get to speak […]

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.

Branching out in college

Written by    Mar 8, 2018

I’m not an adventurous person. Heck, I’m not even a social person. I didn’t really want to join any clubs or participate in any activities. I always felt like clubs and sports of the sort were pointless obligations and I never understood why people get involved. And then I decided to branch out and try new things. It started with just a trip to the ARC: […]

Being a Pen PALS Mentor

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

During orientation and those first few days on campus, everyone was preaching at me to get involved, get involved, get involved! And you know what? They were right. One of the first things I got involved in during my first year at Ohio State was Pen PALS (Peers Advancing Literacy in Students). Because my roommate had joined, and because I thought it looked cool, I […]

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. 🙂

Life on the Block

Written by    Nov 7, 2017

One of the student organizations that I, and many other Buckeyes, dedicate time to is Block”O”! Block “O”, for those who don’t know, is the student organization responsible for cheering on many of Ohio State’s athletic teams. From hockey to volleyball and soccer to football, members of Block “O” make sure that Buckeye spirit is loud and proud!
