Buckeyes Abroad: Paris

Written by    Oct 7, 2019

Hardly has a city ever been more romanticize, written about, painted about and sung about than Paris. I tried to go into my time in Paris with no expectations, and I was absolutely blown away. I was surprised by how navigable the city is: The metro is easy to use, and many of Paris’ top tourist attractions are located centrally to others. We saw as […]

Buckeyes Abroad: Barcelona

Written by    Oct 7, 2019

Barcelona was more touristy and less beach-y than I expected; for example, the famous Las Ramblas street was crowded at all times of day and night. Still, it was a neat place to explore! I personally found Barcelona not as quaint or beautiful as Madrid (read all about my Madrid trip here), but it is still an amazing city! If you go to Barcelona, you […]

Buckeyes Abroad: Madrid

Written by    Oct 7, 2019

In August I traveled to Madrid, a vibrant city with rich history and thriving culture. Madrid has beautiful architecture — every alley, every portico, every plaza is out of a movie— and it’s easy to navigate on foot. We stayed right next to the Prado Museum, one of the world’s finest art museums, and we spent several hours there our first day. It’s free for […]

You Never Know Where an Opportunity Will Come From

Written by    Sep 17, 2019

Well, I thought I knew where my semester was headed. I had the perfect schedule set in stone (no Monday classes, per usual), I had scheduled out which days I’d be going to the gym and going to events with friends. I had time blocked out to study and do homework and write. And then I got an unexpected email. I attended the Career and […]

Surprising ways college does (and doesn’t) change you

Written by    Sep 8, 2019

College is one of the biggest transition times in life. It hits right in the time of life when you’re trying to figure out how adulthood works and who you are as an individual separate from your family and the place you were raised. During some typical reflection time on my life and the first two thirds of college, I realized how unexpected some of the […]

I joined a student organization last minute and it changed my life

Written by    Sep 6, 2019

Right as finals week hit, a friend of mine told me that she needed a position filled in a student organization she was involved in called Camp Kesem. She said that she had counselors drop and needed a program counselor to fill in during week one. My response surprised both of us: I said yes. In the next month, I hurried to complete hours of […]

Dead Poets Society: College edition

Written by    Aug 27, 2019

I like outcasts. That’s one of the main reasons I took a poetry seminar last semester. I was ready to see all those goth, Panic! At The Disco and Mitski-loving writers. I love people who are overly emotional, struggling to face their demons, and held back by society’s wishes. Just reveal to me more of your troubles, you weirdos! The second reason I took a […]

How to Find REAL Primary Sources

Written by    Jun 30, 2019

I’m willing to bet that you’re rolling your eyes just from the title alone. After all, how many times have we all gone over this in high school? These articles are primary sources, those are not, and so on and so forth. To an extent, that knowledge still applies to finding sources for your papers at OSU. The requirements for sources, after all, are completely […]

Year 1 in Review

Written by    May 31, 2019

Though it’s been roughly a month since the school year ended, it’s still kind of hard to believe it. Time seems to flow differently for college than it did in high school. During the school year, it all seemed to stretch out, but when move-out day officially came, it literally felt like only a day had passed since I first moved in. Regardless of this […]

The Easiest Jobs to Take On During a Semester

Written by    May 24, 2019

If you’re like the majority of college students everywhere, you need money. You’re probably in debt right now. You’re a confused young adult. Don’t you worry, I feel you. One of the hardest things to find balance in is work life and school life when you’re a full-time student. How do you have enough time to do your homework, study, and actually get to sleep […]
