Is OSU too big?

Written by    Sep 13, 2017

I’ve lived in the same town in the same house my whole life. My high school was surrounded by cornfields. I was never a city girl, nor was I ever one who thought of what it would be like to leave my town. When I mentioned considering Ohio State as my next step, the responses were all the same: “But it’s so big!”   Of […]

Gallery Hop

Written by    Sep 12, 2017

I spent my time wisely this Labor Day weekend: by going to Gallery Hop in the Short North with some friends. Gallery Hop is when the art galleries and restaurants in the Short North stay open late so that people can walk around and enjoy the artwork. It takes place on the first Saturday of every month, which means that if you’re just in Columbus during […]

Mom, Dad, Professor- I’m an Introvert

Written by    Sep 12, 2017

Breathe in, breathe out. Happy two weeks into the new school year! Being a sophomore now, I feel significantly older and wiser than my old freshman self. The key changes between last year and this year: I know what I’m doing with my life much better now, I talk more, and I have a lot more friends. Whew. Glad those concerns are out the window. […]

Dawn of the Second…Year

Written by    Sep 12, 2017

No, the Moon isn’t falling, don’t worry. I hope that everyone enjoyed their Labour Day Weekend. It was certainly relaxing for me, and in that relaxation, I reflected upon my second year of college. And I marveled at how familiar yet different it was from my first year. The biggest difference being that coming back to college was like (and I know what I’m about […]

The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards Ceremony

Written by    Sep 12, 2017

Now, most of you might be asking what the title is referring to. To be more precise, the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, according to the brochure/pamphlet, is an award that recognizes authors  “whose works confront racism and celebrate diversity.” They were established by Cleveland poet and philanthropist Edith Anisfield Wolf, and are fittingly held in Cleveland annually. But wait, why do I have the brochure? Because […]

Navigating the 50 Clubs You Signed Up For

Written by    Aug 30, 2017

  So, the Involvement Fair just took place last week. You hiked to The Oval with your roommate ready for free t-shirts and free food.  After being completely overwhelmed by over 200 tables, using the “Involvement Fair” geo-filter, and taking a selfie with Brutus, it has been three hours. The fair was long, hot, chaotic, and you are more than ready for a long nap. As you […]

One Year and One Week

Written by    Aug 30, 2017

I am one week into my second year at Ohio State and like the second season of any good TV show, it’s a time to build off of my growth from last year and meet new challenges. Before moving in, I figured I would not have to worry about feeling overwhelmed by classes and extracurricular activities since I had been through it before. Well, I […]

The Great Gateway

Written by    Aug 28, 2017

One of the things I’ve been appreciating since coming back to Ohio State is being walking distance from the Gateway Film Center. The Gateway Film Center shows many of the movies that regular movie theaters do, but they also show many independent films and documentaries, and host special events like Sensory Friendly movies where the volume is lowered and the lights are kept on.
