Student Research: What To Expect

Written by    Jun 28, 2017

Undergraduate student research has been one of the absolute greatest things I have done during my time at Ohio State. When I was a wee little freshman just a few short years ago, you wouldn’t have been able to convince me that I would be full-time student research assistant and getting published in REAL medical journals by age 20. There are many things I didn’t […]

Campus in the Summer

Written by    Jun 21, 2017

This summer I have the opportunity to stay on campus and although it was a hard decision to make, I’m so glad I followed through with it. Ohio State’s campus during the summer is more interesting than I would’ve thought.

I GOT A JOB

Written by    Jun 8, 2017

Last week I got my first ever paycheck from my first ever internship. Wait, did I not tell you? Well, here it is in big bold letters. I GOT A JOB. That’s right ladies and gents, after two semesters of freaking out about my major, stumbling my way through classes, and generally not knowing what I’m doing, I finally got a little bit of my […]

Loving my Summer Internship

Written by    Jun 1, 2017

Working in healthcare has never been a dream of mine. Most of my colleagues have really interesting stories about how they were personally effected by the healthcare system in some way and that is what inspired them to join. My reason is simple: they offered me a paid internship out of high school. Even though I took the position for what may be the wrong reasons, […]

I GET AN INTERVIEW

Written by    May 1, 2017

Physics Class, Smith Labs 2006, 17:42:00  We’re taking a quiz in physics recitation, as we always do. It’s six questions and twenty points of quantum mechanics, our last of the semester. I fill out the quiz, check my work twice, and turn it in. After, I return to my desk because I plan to argue for a change to a grade I got on my […]

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 […]

Working in the Language Lab

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Have you ever been to the COSI Electricity Show? You know, the one where a man with a microphone says a lot of crazy things about electricity and proceeds to make someone’s hair stand up? From a young age, I wanted to be that person up on COSI’s stage with a microphone. I might not have a microphone, but ten years later, I have found myself on COSI’s […]

Student Loans = Student Moans

Written by    Feb 1, 2017

College is great. Paying for it is not. So how do we find the money every semester to keep coming back until that degree is done? First and foremost, take advantage of your own strengths. Are you particularly good at line dancing? Write about that on your college application. Ohio State loves all of you little oddball line dancers. There might be other people that […]

FutureLink!

Written by    Nov 21, 2016

So…if you’re anything like me, you procrastinate from time to time (not to say that homework isn’t always super megafun, cool, awesome, yay). One way I like to make myself feel better about my habit is to spend that time looking for internships/jobs. That’s less bad, right? It’s practical knowledge. I’ll have to do it eventually, ok? And that’s where FutureLink comes in. For those of […]
