Written by    Jun 7, 2018

If you’re about to enter your first year of college, you (like all of us older students once did) will probably find yourself wondering what to pack if you will be living in an on-campus residence hall.  Though every student will differ in packing needs and preferences, I’ve prepared a list of some items that I personally found very helpful throughout my first year here […]

New Zealand Blog 6: I’m Going On Multiple Adventures

Written by    May 31, 2018

Let’s talk ~Auckland Adventures~ – some of the highlights of mini trips here in New Zealand. (Imagine if Frodo wrote this blog. “Today, Gollum fell into the depths of Mordor with the one ring. I’m going to miss that little guy! And Gollum too!”) I’m going to separate each of the four adventures by a character in “The Hobbit” or “Lord of the Rings” that […]

3.5 Months of Summer??

Written by    May 24, 2018

Summer in college is definitely quite different than in high school — in more ways than one, I might add. Most notably, though, is the duration of a college summer break. Unlike in high school, where districts only have about two months off, a college summer is the length of an entire semester (hence the name “Summer Term”). What are you going to do with […]

Wait, Columbus Has a Baseball Team?

Written by    May 16, 2018

Between Ohio State football, Ohio State basketball, Blue Jackets hockey, and Crew soccer, it can be easy to forget that Columbus also has a professional baseball team. The Columbus Clippers are the Cleveland Indians’ AAA-level affiliate, meaning they play at the highest level of minor league baseball and their players are right on the cusp of playing in the major leagues. I love watching baseball […]

Three Months of Summer?

Written by    May 1, 2018

One perk of being in college is that your summer vacation is much longer than it was in high school. We have three-and-a-half months away from school. What am I even supposed to do with all this time? Some students get internships; others choose to study abroad. (Hopefully I’ll do both of those things before I graduate.) This summer, however, I’ll be taking classes at […]

Finals Week Doesn’t Have to Suck

Written by    May 1, 2018

Last semester, finals week was not fun…at all. It wasn’t like I was expecting finals week to be fun, but I also wasn’t expecting to be sick, which made it exceptionally not-fun. I had four final exams to take, and many late night study sessions in the library. But there’s good news! Finals week isn’t always that bad. My first round of finals was rough, […]
