You are What You Eat (Pt. III)

Written by    Jan 29, 2019

What’s one thing all college students have in common? We’re always hungry. One of my favorite meals is from the rice bowl station at Curl Market. For $7.95 (five cents shy of a swipe) you can get a pretty substantial and yummy meal. I order rice, chicken, lettuce, carrots, edamame and cucumbers. They also offer mushrooms, tofu and scallions. I don’t like my bowl drenched […]

Staying on Task in an Online Class

Written by    Jan 28, 2019

During fall semester, one of the classes I had to take for my major was Communication 1101 (History of Communication). Content wise, it was exactly what I expected it to be. Format wise, it was a completely different experience. COMM 1101 was an online class – no buildings to meet in, no classes to attend, nothing physical at all. On paper, it seemed like the […]

Copyediting for the Lantern

Written by    Jan 28, 2019

One of my favorite activities this semester is copyediting for the Lantern. What’s copyediting? Wikipedia would tell you that it’s “the process of reviewing and correcting written material to improve accuracy, readability, and fitness for its purpose, and to ensure that it is free of error, omission, inconsistency, and repetition.” I’ll tell you that it basically means I get to sit in the newsroom for […]

Strictly Business

Written by    Jan 22, 2019

For the first time in my college career, I’m only taking classes this semester that are in the business school or required for my major. Up until now, I had always had some departure from accounting and business-related classes with general education credits (gen eds) and history classes for my minor, but since I’ve fulfilled both of those requirements, just about everything I’ll be doing […]

Top Hat? What’s That?

Written by    Jan 22, 2019

Though each class at Ohio State grades based on its own special criteria, pretty much all of them ask that you attend every lecture / recitation session to receive participation points towards your final grade. At first, this may seem like an infeasible requirement; after all, some class sessions (especially the lectures) will have up to several dozen students at a time. How on earth […]

My First Rec. Fitness Class

Written by    Jan 15, 2019

I hate going to the gym. Walking in the doors gives me anxiety; so many things are happening, everybody is working hard, and they can all tell that I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m told over and over that no one cares what other people do at the gym, but I always feel like everyone is looking at me. I’m uncomfortable for the whole […]

College in the north . . . during winter

Written by    Jan 14, 2019

Okay, I know Ohio isn’t everyone’s dream state. I had high school friends leave to go to college in Tampa, Savannah, Nashville, South Carolina, California . . . places where it’s warm. And it’s around this time of year that I ask classmates who came here from LA or Florida why they chose to come to Ohio. Well, first and foremost, it’s because tOSU is the best university […]

What’s the Wilce?

Written by    Jan 14, 2019

One of the most clichéd complaints about growing up is how we’ve all got to make our own doctor’s appointments. This complaint is no less true at Ohio State. Unless you maintain an extremely healthy lifestyle, you will get sick during your four years here. I’ve only been here one semester, and I’ve already been through a stomach virus. Naturally, I asked the older students […]

Semester Goals (Why I’m Starting Protein Powder)

Written by    Jan 7, 2019

It’s second semester junior year, ladies! I’m back from India (hot, good food, people asked me if I was getting married). I spent a blur of a first semester going to the Clinton Global Initiative, Chicago through the Honors Cohort program, and D.C. for Buckeye Leadership Fellows (expect, at some point, a deep dive on all those different programs for all of you trying to apply), […]

A Survey of College Survey

Written by    Jan 3, 2019

When am I going to use this in life? That’s got to be one of the most widely-asked questions by students about their classes, both in high school and in college. It’s a fair question to ask, too. After all, when’s the last time you ever had to use the Pythagorean Theorem outside of math class? After going through a semester’s worth of classes at Ohio […]
