As the holidays draw to a close and 2018 looms near, the time for OSU students to return to campus for a new semester is nearly upon us. Although it is difficult to return to classes after a long break, it is important to remember all that needs to be done in the early days of the SP18 semester. Here are some helpful “to-do” items […]
Now that my final grades are in, fall semester is officially over. So I thought I’d take some time to answer the question every college student is getting asked this winter break: “how were your classes?” (But don’t worry, this blog post will be more than just the word “fine.”)
Since I’m graduating in the spring, I just finished my last undergraduate fall semester ever. I can’t believe how fast the time went! Fall semester is so much fun because everyone has so much energy for the new school year, and I was just thinking about some favorite memories from each of my fall semesters, so I wanted to share them with you.
If your experience is anything like mine, just about every college student you know will likely tell you a similar anecdotal story about how they were initially terrified about leaving for college but as soon as they stepped onto campus that first day in August they felt right at home. This unanimous fairytale seeming story about finding an immediate sense of belonging can leave you frustrated and […]
I am a little more than halfway through my college career and I’ve taken some time to reflect on the instructors I’ve had throughout my time at Ohio State, so I thought I’d write a letter to my three favorite professors.
If you didn’t know, Ohio State has this amazing thing called D-Tix. If you’re a student, you can use D-Tix to buy discounted tickets to local concerts and events as well as gift cards to stores near campus like Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams or The Candle Lab. Last weekend, I bought a ticket to the zoo lights in Columbus through D-Tix for just $8. Plus, […]
A real quick reminder for y’all: social media is BY NO MEANS an accurate representation of anyone’s life. Lately I’ve been wasting a lot of time of social media, e.g., scrolling endlessly through the explore page on Instagram, my friends’ stories on Snapchat, my Twitter feed, etc. I also noticed that I’d been feeling a little down because of it; I wondered why it seemed […]
I do not often get to go to holiday celebrations during this time of year. Between finals and traveling, it can be hard to fit it into my schedule. However, I made sure to make time this year for Light Up North Area. The student service group Ohio Staters holds this event every December, and since it was on the last day of classes, I was […]
There are a million lists out there of things to pack for college, but here’s a list of things you probably don’t need to pack. After getting settled in at Ohio State, there were definitely a few things I realized I wouldn’t be needing: leisure books and DVDs I don’t have time to read anything outside of my classes. I’ve watched one or two movies […]
When I was preparing for move-in day at Ohio State, I was so excited that the thought of becoming homesick never even crossed my mind. I couldn’t wait to meet my roommate, decorate the room, get involved in student organizations, and find out what life was like in college. In the days leading up to move-in, I spent every free minute going through my checklist […]
