Running Opportunities In and Around Campus

Written by    Jun 27, 2017

When I first came on to campus a few years ago, I wish I had known about these opportunities for running and working out on campus and in the surrounding area. Here are my recommendations for routes, races, and people to run with! Where is […]

Free Sporting Events for the Best Fans in the Land!

Written by    Mar 6, 2017

We all know how important the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State is. Students live for that cold Saturday game against TTUN (That Team Up North). That is why I am proud to say that this year I watched Ohio State beat Michigan not once, but twice! That’s strange, you might be thinking, Ohio State only played Michigan once during the football season? But here’s a fun […]

Why I love Ohio State

Written by    Feb 27, 2017

Exactly one year ago I accepted my invitation to be part of The Ohio State University class of 2020. Part of me can’t believe how long ago that seems and how much I feel like I have changed. I am no longer a high school student with really not a care in a world, but now a college student who is paving her way to […]

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 […]

A Buckeye Holiday

Written by    Dec 29, 2016

“It’s another holiday season here in Columbus,” The radio says on my way home from work, “Meaning we’re all visiting Wild Lights at the zoo, prepping for holiday meals, and mentally preparing ourselves for the Buckeyes’ next football game.” I’m in the car on my way home from where I work in Worthington. The implication that the College Football Playoffs are so run of the […]

Football and Family

Written by    Nov 30, 2016

For the longest time, I was never really interested in football. I loved watching it, but I never took much interest to the sport itself. The rules were confusing, the games were always at least 4 hours long, and I just didn’t really understand why people enjoyed the sport so much. This, of course, was before I came to Ohio State. Coming to this school […]

How to Run a Marathon When You Don’t Like Running

Written by    Nov 21, 2016

Recently, I participated in the Columbus City marathon only a few short weeks ago. There are over 20,000 people who participate in either the full or half marathon and it is a Boston Marathon Qualifying preliminary race. Now picture a girl who hasn’t run further than six miles in her life before the beginning of this past summer. She never did cross country or track […]

From Kickoff to Carmen

Written by    Sep 13, 2016

There always seems to be at least one sick student in every class, on every campus, at every school.  This week, I am “that” student.  However, I didn’t get sick because I stayed up too late, caught the freshmen plague, or have been binging in the cafeterias.  I am sick because I have become a die-hard football fan. Although it was not something I looked […]

Football is in the air

Written by    Sep 8, 2016

Hey y’all! I went to the first football game of the year and it was everything I expected and more! The energy, the weather, THE BAND, the players, the fans, THE BAND, the hot dogs. I’m telling you it was an experience I’ll never forget!
