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 […]

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 […]

Harry Potter and the Legend of Studying Abroad

Written by    Nov 19, 2015

Studying abroad often seems like a myth to most people, like something that you hear about regularly but never actually seems achievable. Everyone wants to travel the world or experience something that they haven’t before but resources may be limited or you may not even know where to start.

Written by    May 11, 2015

Summer Through a Filter

Written by    Aug 31, 2014

This summer I stayed in Columbus, and it was one of the best additions to my college career. I was able to work at Exel Logistics downtown, eat at a lot of awesome restaurants, and explore all that CBus (and even other cities in Ohio) has to offer.
