BuckeyeThon 2019

Written by    Feb 11, 2019

FOR THE KIDS!!! That’s BuckeyeThon’s motto and driving mission. BuckeyeThon is the annual 24 hour dance marathon to fight pediatric cancer by raising money to fund research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This year more than 2,000 Buckeyes raised over $1.7 million. In November students sign up, join a team and pledge to raise at least $250 for the cure. This may sound like a lot, […]

Restaurant Reviews, Part 2: Rush Bowls

Written by    Feb 6, 2019

For a long time, the part of Lane Avenue that represented Ohio State’s northern border stretching from High Street to the Schottenstein Arena didn’t have much new to offer students. Stores, restaurants, and housing had been in the same spot for a long time without change, but in the last few years Lane saw some new life with the addition of new apartment complexes and this […]

My First Rec. Fitness Class

Written by    Jan 15, 2019

I hate going to the gym. Walking in the doors gives me anxiety; so many things are happening, everybody is working hard, and they can all tell that I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m told over and over that no one cares what other people do at the gym, but I always feel like everyone is looking at me. I’m uncomfortable for the whole […]

College in the north . . . during winter

Written by    Jan 14, 2019

Okay, I know Ohio isn’t everyone’s dream state. I had high school friends leave to go to college in Tampa, Savannah, Nashville, South Carolina, California . . . places where it’s warm. And it’s around this time of year that I ask classmates who came here from LA or Florida why they chose to come to Ohio. Well, first and foremost, it’s because tOSU is the best university […]

Semester Goals (Why I’m Starting Protein Powder)

Written by    Jan 7, 2019

It’s second semester junior year, ladies! I’m back from India (hot, good food, people asked me if I was getting married). I spent a blur of a first semester going to the Clinton Global Initiative, Chicago through the Honors Cohort program, and D.C. for Buckeye Leadership Fellows (expect, at some point, a deep dive on all those different programs for all of you trying to apply), […]

Columbus Music Scene: Hippo Campus

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

When I was searching for colleges a few years ago, I knew I wanted to be in a city. At home I live 15 minutes away from downtown Cincinnati, and I knew I couldn’t survive at a school where the nearest Target was an hour (or even more than 20 minutes, really) away. A huge plus about being in a city is the music scene. […]

Columbus Food Scene: North Market

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

The Short North, which is just south of campus along High Street, is home to some of Columbus’ best restaurants. If you want a one-stop-shop packed with tons of delicious food from a variety of restaurants, however, you should try the North Market. Last weekend, we celebrated my friend’s birthday and went out to dinner with a big group of girls. North Market is the […]

Thank you, Ohio State

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

It seems the sun is finally setting on my time here at The Ohio State University. During my final semester as a student, I have been taking more time than usual to reflect on my college journey. It all started on an airplane. I was trying to decide between Ohio State and another university. I wrote down all the pros and cons for each school […]

A Tasty Night

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I went to my first OUAB event of the year recently, and this one was different than any other one I had been to before. Claire King, the head chef for Buzzfeed’s Tasty came to talk about how she ended up working at Buzzfeed and how they make those super-fast cooking demonstrations that take over your Facebook feed. When I got to the event, I was […]

The Columbus Water Lantern Festival

Written by    Oct 11, 2018

Surprise, surprise: I went to another lantern festival. Shoutout to both Columbus for having so many and the invasive technology in my phone that knows what to advertise to me so I can live out my Tangled dreams. This time, I took my lovely friend Rose and the festival actually took place in Columbus as advertised, along the Scioto river and across from COSI and Genoa […]
