An Exciting Announcement

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Eek!! (substitute whatever noise of excitement most tickles your whiskers). As of last week, I officially tacked on my second minor: Film Studies. More than just being able to minor is something of interest, this was an exciting moment for me because it officially marks my career shift. When I came to The Ohio State University, I was certain I wanted to be an English […]

You’re a Freshman: Advice to My Sister

Written by    Aug 17, 2017

I can’t believe you’re going to be a freshman starting tomorrow—a lanyard-wearing, large-group-walking, too-loud-talking freshman. I’m kinda worried about how college will change you, but I’m mostly hopeful that it will bring us closer—as in you’ll text me back sometimes and I won’t have to Snapchat you to get you to reply. As you’re saying hello to college, I’m saying my final goodbye. Here are […]

NEW Leadership Ohio: A Conference on Women in Politics

Written by    Jun 6, 2017

This summer, I engaged in one of the best opportunities of my life through the NEW Leadership Ohio Conference on Women in Politics. For a week at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, I worked with my female peers and community leaders in order to learn and explore the “mysterious” political sector. In particular, we learned about what it means to run for public […]

Safe Zones at Ohio State

Written by    Mar 13, 2017

Last week, I attended an LGBT Safe Zone training put on by Ohio State’s Multicultural Center. As someone who is involved in several LGBT groups on campus, I went as a refresher on information I was already somewhat familiar with. However, I was excited to see that most of the other participants in the training were Ohio State faculty and staff members who were eager […]

Resource Profile: The Writing Center

Written by    Feb 6, 2017

Welp, Ohio State has this incredible thing called the Writing Center. It’s purrrdy great, if you ask me. However, I think it is a pretty under-used resource on campus that many people could really benefit from if they knew more about it. I am admittedly biased on this matter since I am currently taking a class in preparation to work in the writing center. BUT…that […]

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 […]

An Open Letter

Written by    Nov 14, 2016

Over the last week, there has been no greater topic on campus than the 2016 presidential election outcome. Honestly, I certainly was disappointed that my candidate lost — and as an immigrant had to take a bit to remind myself that I am still happy to have become a citizen of this country. As a result, I sat down in the Knowlton Hall Cafe and […]

Listen to Pericles

Written by    Oct 11, 2016

Well, this has been an eventful week for the election, hasn’t it? You can almost hear China laughing at us over the sound of Great Britain’s weeping. A fellow approached me after the second presidential debate and said, “So. You’re a political science major. How do you fix this?” I’m not sure which was more laughable: the fact that he was asking a first-semester freshman […]
