After joining PRSSA last fall (read more about PRSSA here + here), I joined The PRactice second semester. The PRactice is Ohio State’s student-run public relations firm affiliated with PRSSA. It gives students the chance to apply what they learn at PRSSA meetings to real world clients. Yes, The PRactice has real, paying clients; many are Columbus companies and some are different schools or departments […]

How to “do it all” and still get 8 hours of sleep

Written by    Jul 31, 2018

College is overwhelming. There are lots of opportunities that you are encouraged to try, lots of difficult classes that take up much of your personal time, and not as much money in your pocket as you are used to. Trust me, I get it: I am currently a pre-med double major who works two jobs, volunteers each week, studies for the MCAT and serves as president […]

The Best Last-Minute Decision

Written by    May 1, 2018

For the first couple of months of spring semester, I thought I would spend my spring break back at home. The freezing cold walks to class and late nights cramming for midterms made the idea of a week of relaxation and sleeping in at home all the more appealing. Besides, I’d get to hang out with high school friends and see my pets again. What […]

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: […]

Written by    Feb 16, 2018

During my first Boo Radley Society meeting, I was impressed by the leadership and immediately knew I wanted to hold office one day. Fast forward to 2018 as I finish up my term as the 2017-2018 President!
