Written by    Jul 28, 2017

The title says it all. Some of the many things I didn’t do until my last year of college that I don’t understand why I didn’t do earlier: Gateway D-Tix: Ohio State has a program called Discount Tickets, or D-Tix.

The Actual First Day of Spring

Written by    Apr 11, 2017

For reals this time. The weather’s beautiful, and so very alien after so many long months of cold. The sun is shining, the skies aren’t cloudy, there’s a pleasant breeze…Ohio State has come to life after a (according to a friend) short and mild winter.

Written by    Mar 29, 2017

For those of you who have never heard of an escape room, you’re locked in a room about the size of a large office and must find clues that lead you to unlock the door […]

Intramurals

Written by    Feb 8, 2017

Two weeks ago, I spontaneously joined an intramural volleyball. While I stood in line during formal sorority rush, I made a new friend. This friend just so happened to be forming an intramural volleyball team and asked me to join. Intramurals were one of the few things on campus that I was not yet involved in; how could I say no? Although I already had way too much […]

Yes, There Is A Hammock Club

Written by    Jan 23, 2017

For those of you who don’t know, second semester of freshman year of college is a little bit like seasons 1 – 8 of “How I Met Your Mother.” As in, that’s what it’s famous for. Armed with the confidence of surviving finals and rattled by the shock of going home for winter break and finding yourself utterly bored, you’re ready to come back. And […]

It’s Never Too Late to Try Something New!

Written by    Jan 18, 2017

But I also realized that it’s been a while since I’ve tried anything outside of my routine, and I’m running out of time to do new things! That’s why I’m glad to report […]
