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 […]

The Best Last-Minute Decision

Written by    May 1, 2018

For the first couple of months of spring semester, I thought I would spend my spring break back at home. The freezing cold walks to class and late nights cramming for midterms made the idea of a week of relaxation and sleeping in at home all the more appealing. Besides, I’d get to hang out with high school friends and see my pets again. What […]

Exploring Columbus: German Village

Written by    May 1, 2018

Another place in my city that I’ve never visited is German Village, despite hearing a lot of great things about it. Since it’s just a 10 minute drive from campus, I headed over to the area with a friend to see what all the hype was about. Our first stop (and biggest priority) was The Book Loft. I’ve heard it’s big enough to get lost […]

Exploring Columbus: My first visit to the Arena District

Written by    Mar 9, 2018

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve lived in a suburb of Columbus my whole life, but I never really get out and explored the city. I’ve been downtown quite a few times in my life, but I don’t know the city too well, and there are a lot of hidden gems I’ve been missing. I have gone to the statehouse and the Ohio Theatre and the […]

Opportunities for Creativity

Written by    Mar 8, 2018

Being a creative person with a busy schedule is proving to be a very hard task. With assignments, projects, papers, and work deadlines, I rarely find time to create art just for myself. But I’ve found some spots for creativity in the strangest places.

Everybody was Stage Combat Fightin’

Written by    Jan 2, 2018

Last spring, the Ohio State Department of Theatre announced that one of the grad students would teach an advanced movement-based stage combat class, and you can bet I was down for the chance to channel my inner James Bond.
