Fashionably #ForTheKids

Written by    Nov 8, 2017

I’m no expert when it comes to fashion, but I knew BuckeyeThon’s annual fashion show benefiting the kids of Nationwide Children’s Hospital would not require me to be one in order to have a great time supporting the kids. And I wasn’t wrong. 🙂

Life on the Block

Written by    Nov 7, 2017

One of the student organizations that I, and many other Buckeyes, dedicate time to is Block”O”! Block “O”, for those who don’t know, is the student organization responsible for cheering on many of Ohio State’s athletic teams. From hockey to volleyball and soccer to football, members of Block “O” make sure that Buckeye spirit is loud and proud!

Not so creepy Canfield

Written by    Nov 7, 2017

As first year student, you are required to live on campus. Before move-in day arrives, you should think about roommate(s) and where you might want to live. You may not get your first choice of housing, so be sure to keep an open mind and make the most of your dorm experience! I was very lucky, and met my roommate through an Ohio State roommate […]

Written by    Nov 6, 2017

As I continue to navigate my freshman year at Ohio State, I keep thinking back to my senior year of high school. This is mostly as a result of the slew of questions I get every week from my high school friends that are just now beginning to apply to Ohio State. Just like them, I was a bit terrified.

Saturday Nights in Columbus

Written by    Nov 6, 2017

The biggest question I get now that I am a Buckeye is: “So do you just go to football games every weekend? Is that all you Ohio State students do?” Granted, to an outsider, this may seem to be a fair question. Ohio State continuously is ranked amongst the biggest football schools with the most dedicated fans. Who can blame us? Urban Meyer’s name is […]

We all have Imposter Syndrome

Written by    Nov 6, 2017

First thing’s first, if you don’t know what imposter syndrome is, let me define it: it’s the fear of being exposed as a fraud, e.g., you’re not as smart/put-together/competent as people think you are. This happens a lot the first year of college. You probably did well in high school; you got all A’s, even in AP or CCP classes. You were the smart kid. […]

How to Community

Written by    Nov 6, 2017

In my last blog post I wrote about community, but I wanted to go deeper into the how. As an freshman, how do you find and cultivate community? Know yourself. Before you decide what you want to be a part of, it’s good to know yourself. This might be an easy step for some people, but for others it can take more reflection. Who are […]

I Have a Major (!)

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Big news, guys. Very big. Things are happening. Things are coming together. As you can probably see from the title of this post, the big news is that I HAVE DECLARED A (PRE) MAJOR! I know that people change their majors every day, but this is kind of a huge turning point for me as a thus-far undecided student. I have to say, though, without […]

Surviving Orientation (and maybe, possibly, liking it?) TIP #2

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Last time, I talked about the importance of getting to know your peer leader and I detailed a little about how you can use them as a resource throughout your first year at Ohio State. While peer leaders will be able to connect you to many opportunities, they might not be able to make friends for you, leading us to our second tip—   Tip […]

The Perks of Attending a Big University

Written by    Nov 2, 2017

Lots of high school seniors are afraid to commit to a large college, fearing that their classes will be impersonal or that they won’t be able to make friends. The truth is, I have lots of small classes at OSU, even as a freshman. I’ve met so many amazing people, and there are loads of benefits of being a student at a big school, such […]
