The Perks of Attending a Big University

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Lots of high school seniors are afraid to commit to a large college, fearing that their classes will be impersonal or that they won’t be able to make friends. The truth is, I have lots of small classes at OSU, even as a freshman. I’ve met so many amazing people, and there are loads of benefits of being a student at a big school, such […]

A Game of Carrom

Written by    Oct 25, 2017

So last weekend I spent my Sunday night at OSU’s own Hindi Club Game Night, rather than continuing to do homework (like any sensible person). And it was indeed worth it, for we all had a lot of fun. And I also learned a couple new games! Go-Fish (No, I had never played Go-Fish before) The highlight of the night, of course, was the Carrom […]

Fun and Games (and a Surprise Parade!)

Written by    Oct 12, 2017

Last year, I heard about a cool place in the Short North called Kingmakers. For $5, you could choose from a huge collection of board games and play for hours on end with your friends. I thought this seemed like a great concept and hoped to go this year. Meanwhile, I am also a mentor for my Scholars program, so I have a group of five […]

My first trip to the short north

Written by    Oct 3, 2017

It’s pretty sad, but I’ve lived in Central Ohio my whole life and never made it to the Short North. I hear about the shops and all the food constantly from friends and classmates, so I decided it was time to check it out and report back to see if it’s worth the hype. First stop: the famed North Market! Alright guys, I took my camera […]

The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards Ceremony

Written by    Sep 12, 2017

Now, most of you might be asking what the title is referring to. To be more precise, the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, according to the brochure/pamphlet, is an award that recognizes authors  “whose works confront racism and celebrate diversity.” They were established by Cleveland poet and philanthropist Edith Anisfield Wolf, and are fittingly held in Cleveland annually. But wait, why do I have the brochure? Because […]

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 most powerful D-Tix of them all is the Gateway Film Center. For a mere $3, you can get a voucher for a ticket at […]

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. I take his word for it since it’s my first winter in a long time. And after a week of midterms, […]
