Facing Career Fair Fears

Written by    Feb 12, 2018

Almost since the time I started at Ohio State, I had heard about, and been afraid of, career fairs. It was hard for me to fathom how I could walk up to a recruiter, hand them my resumé, and speak confidently enough to plant in their heads the idea that I should get an internship at their company. As a result, I avoided career fairs […]

Minoring: a want or a need?

Written by    Feb 6, 2018

When you’re heading to college, a lot of the focus is on your major. Often times, minors are pushed under the rug and completely forgotten about. Are they necessary? What’s the point? What should I minor in? Should I even get a minor? Lots of questions, one underwhelming answer: minors are whatever you want them to be. There are tons of reasons for you to choose a […]

2018 Scholars Student Leadership Summit

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

On January 27th I had the opportunity to attend the Scholars Student Leadership Summit with the Media, Marketing Communication leadership team. As we walked over to the event together, like typical college students, we complained about having to wake up early and give up half a Saturday. But we were all pleasantly surprised. And it wasn’t just the free bagels, coffee and Moe’s. There was […]

Okay, maybe it’s not your worst nightmare, but it can be pretty bad when you have a mile to walk to class and midterms coming up.

Best Places to Eat on Campus

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

Sloopy’s Diner If you’re looking for a sweet dessert, Sloopy’s is the place to go. At first, I was a little skeptical of the idea of pancakes covered in peanut butter and chocolate chips, but I soon discovered they were a little heaven on Earth.

Written by    Feb 1, 2018

AU17: Comm 1101— History of Communication (Pt. II) Style: Dr. Abo presented Powerpoint lectures during almost every class period. Lecture slides were posted online before class, so I would follow along on my computer and take notes in Powerpoint. Outside of class we had to complete weekly quizzes and reading.
