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, […]

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 […]

What I have learned since the second semester started: academic-wise.

Written by    Jan 30, 2017

This second semester has been severe—I have 8 a.m. classes, which I totally did not intend to do so, and my schedule is poorly distributed with four classes on Wednesdays and Fridays, but only one on Tuesdays. And I would love to share what it has been and what I learned from last three weeks. 8 a.m. is not so bad: I was devastated to […]

I study a lot. I know a thing or two.

Written by    Jan 30, 2017

After a study session ended at 1:30 a.m. this Thursday morning, I decided to do my best to put together a list of study tips that are equal parts useful and new. We all understand that sleep is good and over-studying is bad. Below is a list of study tips that I’ve found to actually be useful, rather than the vague “Get enough sleep!” and […]

The Stages of the Semester’s First Late Night

Written by    Jan 27, 2017

Ahh, Week 3; faint are the memories of syllabus week and light homework, heavy are the myriad of assignments piling on. Yes, it has always seemed to me that Week 3 marks the descent into the maddening routine of consistent homework…in all your classes…every night. So, I shouldn’t have been surprised when last night I had, for the first time this semester, my first late […]

New Semester, New You?

Written by    Jan 19, 2017

Last semester’s grades got you down? Feeling unsure about your major or what you want to do for the rest of your life? Lost and insecure (you found me, you found me…sorry, I had to.) about yourself in general? Take a breather. You’re not alone! Lucky for you, Ohio State realizes that almost everyone goes through this, myself included. There’s tons of resources right on […]

Ben’s STEP Adventure- Day 3

Written by    Dec 28, 2016

Wednesday Dickinson, POE, Twain, Stowe, Sleepy Hollow Pt. 1 Day Three! “Three is a magic number!” That’s a song from Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. that I sang in the 7th grade as the part of George. Feel free to cast me in Hamilton any day now, I’ll take any part I can get. Anyway, yes, the third day of the adventure was full of many […]
