My first (and last) Michigan game

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

This was definitely one of my favorite weekends ever. As I’ve mentioned before in other blog posts, I was never a football person until I came here. I was in marching band in high school, so I attended every single football game for my school … and I didn’t pay attention to a single one of them. Then I came here and I became super […]

Stories from a football school

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I chose to go to a football school. That isn’t to say that my school is not strong in academics, research, and global impact; actually, it’s great in all of those too. I just mean that football is such an integral part of life at Ohio State that you can’t get by without it, and it contributes a lot to the student experience. I grew […]

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.

Basketball is Back!

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

Last year, I really had no desire to go to Ohio State basketball games. In addition to the arena being far from my building and games being on weeknights, the team could be best described as mediocre. But this year, things have taken a turn for the better. Under the leadership of new coach Chris Holtmann, the Buckeye basketball squad has 18 wins against just […]

It’s 2018, and Michigan still sucks

Written by    Jan 3, 2018

Ah, yes, more unnecessary football commentary from yours truly. If you told me a year ago that I would be super into college football, I would have laughed at you. But alas, here I am, and less than a year of being a Buckeye has turned me into a crazed fan. I wouldn’t miss an opportunity to make fun of TTUN! Have you seen all the […]

Why OSU should be in the playoffs

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

The Crimson Tide didn’t deserve our spot and I’m not done being angry about it. Here’s why I’m right: -We are conference champs. I mean, doesn’t that make us an obvious choice? ‘Bama doesn’t have a conference champ trophy, now do they? Especially not in a conference often considered the toughest by a variety of power ratings. Plus, since Wisconsin would have been in if they beat […]

Life on the Block

Written by    Nov 7, 2017

One of the student organizations that I, and many other Buckeyes, dedicate time to is Block”O”! Block “O”, for those who don’t know, is the student organization responsible for cheering on many of Ohio State’s athletic teams. From hockey to volleyball and soccer to football, members of Block “O” make sure that Buckeye spirit is loud and proud!

Four Miles at Ohio State

Written by    Oct 26, 2017

Ohio State may be the second-largest university in the U.S., and we may have the sixth-best football team (as of this writing,) but when it comes to four-mile races, we can’t be beat. On Sunday I ran in the Ohio State Four Miler, the largest race of its distance in the country. Proceeds from the run go toward cancer research at the James Cancer Hospital […]
