Me and My Automatic, Filtered Water: My Favorite Things About Ohio State

Written by    Apr 11, 2017

Stop! Don’t scroll past this! I won’t tell you about different dining plans, I promise! So I know that this is the time all you soon-to-be-freshman babies are choosing a college, and I would like to make sure that I get all the good freshman babies. I would like a protegee, specifically, that thinks I’m cool and would like me to teach them about systemic […]

Packing for College: Nightmare or Nah?

Written by    Apr 7, 2017

There are about three more weeks left in the semester, so naturally I started taking inventory of my dorm room and comparing it to the inventory I created before I started school in the fall. Yeah, there are a lot of things that don’t add up.

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, […]

The Truth About RAs: Real Talk

Written by    Mar 9, 2017

Movies do a really poor job of showing us what resident advisors are like; they’re portrayed as no fun, stuck-up, and out to get residents at every turn. This couldn’t be more wrong. I have talked to a lot of people that dearly cherish their RA, and I myself have grown fond of mine. Especially now that many of my friends are getting ready to […]

BuckeyeThon 2017

Written by    Feb 16, 2017

BuckeyeThon 2017 was an absolute success! I had zero idea what to expect as I’d never participated before, but overall I’m proud and humbled by the Ohio State community’s ability to rally together to raise money for kids with cancer. We raised over $1.5 MILLION For the Kids!

New *Semester*, New Me

Written by    Jan 9, 2017

Ugh…it’s time to accept that winter break is over. There’s nothing to be done to make it last any longer (besides skipping your classes–but don’t do that, folks). I’m not one for big, sweeping new year’s resolutions. But, on the eve of a new semester, I’ve found myself considering a few changes I’d like to make so that this semester is better than the last.

Ben’s STEP Adventure- Day 2

Written by    Dec 27, 2016

Tuesday New Bedford and Salem 6:30 a.m. Praise the Lord/Buddha/Vishnu/your respective deity that we finally got to sleep in (relatively speaking). Luckily, our hotel’s bathroom window didn’t close fully, so we had a lovely juxtaposition between the 40 degree bathroom and the 85 degree bedroom, causing me to wake up in a sweat (and not the usual kind I get from dreams or eating too […]
