The Country We Love With Diane Guerrero

Written by    Mar 8, 2017

Last week, I attended yet another amazing OUAB event: seeing actress Diane Guerrero speak. I love Orange is the New Black, and I expected her talk to be about her time on the show, but most of her talk was about her experiences being the child of undocumented immigrants who were deported when she was in high school. Although it wasn’t what I was expecting, it was […]

Free Sporting Events for the Best Fans in the Land!

Written by    Mar 6, 2017

We all know how important the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State is. Students live for that cold Saturday game against TTUN (That Team Up North). That is why I am proud to say that this year I watched Ohio State beat Michigan not once, but twice! That’s strange, you might be thinking, Ohio State only played Michigan once during the football season? But here’s a fun […]

Be an OWL!

Written by    Mar 2, 2017

I am sitting at a picnic table behind the Union, doing some homework (sort of), minding my own business (hardly). Tour groups are pouring out of the inside of the Union: mobs of angsty high school seniors are drudging after the tour guide, and their parents are standing a little too close for their high school senior swag (seriously, only the parents ask questions on […]

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!

Moneythink OSU

Written by    Feb 16, 2017

There are so many wonderful clubs here at Ohio State I find it difficult to decide which ones I want to join. That being said, when I hear about one that sparks my interest I try to give it a shot. This was the case with Moneythink. My roommate/BFF told me about this organization that goes to underprivileged schools and neighborhoods to teach students financial […]

So You Want to Make a Difference?

Written by    Feb 15, 2017

  It has been three days and I am still recovering from my twelve-hour shift of BuckeyeThon. After standing on my feet all through the night, I am exhausted. However, I have never been more excited to talk about BuckeyeThon. So, I have decided to take a quick moment to tell you all about one of Ohio State’s most popular and successful fundraising events. Each year, universities around […]

Not Just A Day Off

Written by    Jan 18, 2017

In 4th grade, I went to a friend’s house on Martin Luther King Day. When I walked in the door, my friend’s dad joked, “This is going to be great! I have a lot of different books and newspaper articles about Martin Luther King that we can look at for hours!” I laughed, but the truth was I never really took a lot of time […]
