Myth: You Can’t Cook in College

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

Everyone knows that college kids live off of ramen, pizza rolls, and anything else you can microwave. While I do shamelessly love my ramen and pizza rolls, it’s important to know that you actually can cook food in college! Most of the dorms have shared kitchens with stoves, ovens, and refrigerators. It’s great if you just want to bake some chocolate chip cookies, but you […]

With finals looming over head and much studying to be done, there’s one great way to brighten up the atmosphere (literally)…Decorating! If you know me, you know that I love to decorate, and my dorm room is no exception. This year, my roommate and I have decorated with some wall decals, Christmas […]

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

When I first toured tOSU, the presenter said, “You can make a big school feel small, but you can’t make a small school feel big.” This was a big game-changer for me. After being here almost a full semester, I can say that Ohio State does not feel overwhelmingly big. A school this size is offers a greater percentage of people who share similar passions. […]

Bigger is Better (Pt. I)

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

When I began my college search, I thought I wanted a small school. I never thought I’d end up at a school as large as Ohio State. If you’re reluctant to choose Ohio State because of its size, I assure you it’s not as scary as it sounds. My incoming freshman class is only 7,000 (only!). Ohio State attracts transfer students sophomore, junior, and senior […]

Going Home: How I Know I Chose the Right School

Written by    Dec 8, 2017

Like many of you, I went home for Thanksgiving this past week. I enjoyed the time spent with my family and pets, and heavily regret the absurd amounts of food that I ate.

Stop Hating on West Campus (Pt. II)

Written by    Nov 28, 2017

This week I’m back with more reasons why MoTow is the GOAT. 4. It only takes seven minutes to bike to Target. This is actually a huge deal since Target is probably one of the most essential stores on the planet, especially for college students. What about the speeding cars? you might ask. There are sidewalks the whole way, so no worries there. The most […]

Learning to Love Change

Written by    Nov 27, 2017

This year, my personal goal has been to become comfortable with change. Coming from high school, in which each day followed the same linear sequence of events, I was extremely uncomfortable with simply […]
