How to Nail Your Next Phone Interview

Written by    Feb 11, 2019

Many first-round interviews for internships take place over the phone. They’re more informal — you don’t have to dress business professional or even leave your room. Often, the recruiter tells you more about the position and wants to learn whether or not you’d be a good fit for the role. But a phone interview lacks nonverbal cues: the opportunity for a firm handshake, eye contact, […]

BuckeyeThon 2019

Written by    Feb 11, 2019

FOR THE KIDS!!! That’s BuckeyeThon’s motto and driving mission. BuckeyeThon is the annual 24 hour dance marathon to fight pediatric cancer by raising money to fund research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. This year more than 2,000 Buckeyes raised over $1.7 million. In November students sign up, join a team and pledge to raise at least $250 for the cure. This may sound like a lot, […]

Restaurant Reviews, Part 2: Rush Bowls

Written by    Feb 6, 2019

For a long time, the part of Lane Avenue that represented Ohio State’s northern border stretching from High Street to the Schottenstein Arena didn’t have much new to offer students. Stores, restaurants, and housing had been in the same spot for a long time without change, but in the last few years Lane saw some new life with the addition of new apartment complexes and this […]

The Unexpected Weekend

Written by    Feb 5, 2019

My parents, both Ohio State alumni, have about 10 years between them of going to Ohio State. Yet, throughout those years, neither of them ever had school called off on account of weather. There were no snow days for college students when they went here, and cold days weren’t even a thing back then. So imagine my surprise last Tuesday when I received an alert […]

Saying Goodbye Pt. 1: The Last Semester Bucket List

Written by    Feb 4, 2019

It’s crazy, and it’s weird, and it’s a little (read: a lot) sad–I’ve come to my last semester of college. There’s a lot to say simply about coming to this point (and I plan to get to that soon). But for right now, I want to alleviate some of the winter blues by making a “Last Semester at Ohio State” bucket list of things to do […]

Two Thumbs up for Poke Bros

Written by    Jan 29, 2019

Living off campus, I spend a lot of time scouting out the best places to eat on High Street when I don’t feel like cooking for myself. Earlier this month, searching for good food became a little bit easier when Poke Bros opened across from north campus, enabling me to walk to the restaurant pretty much in a straight line from my house. Although there were […]

You are What You Eat (Pt. III)

Written by    Jan 29, 2019

What’s one thing all college students have in common? We’re always hungry. One of my favorite meals is from the rice bowl station at Curl Market. For $7.95 (five cents shy of a swipe) you can get a pretty substantial and yummy meal. I order rice, chicken, lettuce, carrots, edamame and cucumbers. They also offer mushrooms, tofu and scallions. I don’t like my bowl drenched […]

Staying on Task in an Online Class

Written by    Jan 28, 2019

During fall semester, one of the classes I had to take for my major was Communication 1101 (History of Communication). Content wise, it was exactly what I expected it to be. Format wise, it was a completely different experience. COMM 1101 was an online class – no buildings to meet in, no classes to attend, nothing physical at all. On paper, it seemed like the […]

Copyediting for the Lantern

Written by    Jan 28, 2019

One of my favorite activities this semester is copyediting for the Lantern. What’s copyediting? Wikipedia would tell you that it’s “the process of reviewing and correcting written material to improve accuracy, readability, and fitness for its purpose, and to ensure that it is free of error, omission, inconsistency, and repetition.” I’ll tell you that it basically means I get to sit in the newsroom for […]
