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.

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 […]

SOS, life is in shambles

Written by    Oct 27, 2016

Guys. I just had the worst shift of my entire life. And it’s only my second week of work. I’m an office assistant in my residence hall, and don’t get me wrong, it’s great. I think it’s as awesome as a minimum wage job gets. It’s convenient, I get to choose my hours, and I get to do homework while I’m sitting at the front […]

Just keep swimming

Written by    Sep 30, 2016

College has a hefty price tag.  Not only do we need to pay for tuition but also housing, dining, textbooks, warm clothing (for Ohio’s bipolar weather), club fees, trips off campus, school supplies, study abroad, groceries, the list is unending.  So how do Ohio State students go about combatting the mounds of debt facing us after college?  We get campus jobs! This year I work […]

Summer in Cbus

Written by    Jun 8, 2016

Woah! Bam! Yahuh! That’s right! Ben is back to writing after his brief hiatus. Brief is a very subjective term. I am comparing my break in terms of the history of the universe, which would relatively make it “brief.” I am once again here to spread the Gospel of Ben (no affiliation to the Bible) and share the stories and advice of my life.

Being a Student Grader: Pros and Cons

Written by    Sep 24, 2015

Hello Buckeyes! It’s been a crazy first month of school, and I am just now starting to feel like I’m settling into a groove. This year I am trying something new: working on campus as a student grader for a computer science course that I took last semester. It was kind of a last-minute decision, and I was worried about adding a part-time job to my already […]

Nostalgia and looking forward

Written by    Jun 2, 2015

Hello Everyone, I’m back (after a long, long hiatus)! With the end of May 2015, I have now completed 4 years at Buckeyenation, each of which has been memorable. I wanted to take some time to reflect on some of my best memories, as several of my friends have now graduated and are joining the away-from-home Buckeye family.
