Wait, Columbus Has a Baseball Team?

Written by    May 16, 2018

Between Ohio State football, Ohio State basketball, Blue Jackets hockey, and Crew soccer, it can be easy to forget that Columbus also has a professional baseball team. The Columbus Clippers are the Cleveland Indians’ AAA-level affiliate, meaning they play at the highest level of minor league baseball and their players are right on the cusp of playing in the major leagues. I love watching baseball […]

Commencement!

Written by    May 16, 2018

I can’t believe my commencement day has already come and gone! These four years went so fast, and Commencement was the perfect way to finish my time as an undergraduate student at Ohio State. I had so much fun attending the commencement ceremony and celebrating with my family–and of course, taking lots of pictures!

Commencement Week

Written by    May 7, 2018

I’ve always wondered what graduating students do in the week in between finals and commencement. In past years, I’ve gone home soon after my last final was over, so I’d never been around to witness campus emptying out and becoming quieter. But now that it’s my turn to graduate, I’m finally learning what goes on during the week!

Three Months of Summer?

Written by    May 1, 2018

One perk of being in college is that your summer vacation is much longer than it was in high school. We have three-and-a-half months away from school. What am I even supposed to do with all this time? Some students get internships; others choose to study abroad. (Hopefully I’ll do both of those things before I graduate.) This summer, however, I’ll be taking classes at […]

Finals Week Doesn’t Have to Suck

Written by    May 1, 2018

Last semester, finals week was not fun…at all. It wasn’t like I was expecting finals week to be fun, but I also wasn’t expecting to be sick, which made it exceptionally not-fun. I had four final exams to take, and many late night study sessions in the library. But there’s good news! Finals week isn’t always that bad. My first round of finals was rough, […]

The Best Last-Minute Decision

Written by    May 1, 2018

For the first couple of months of spring semester, I thought I would spend my spring break back at home. The freezing cold walks to class and late nights cramming for midterms made the idea of a week of relaxation and sleeping in at home all the more appealing. Besides, I’d get to hang out with high school friends and see my pets again. What […]

Freshman Year Recap

Written by    May 1, 2018

Wow!  A year has gone by already!  It is super crazy to think about how quickly time goes by — after all, it feels like just yesterday that I moved into my residence hall.  Before I completely leave my freshman year in the memory books, I want to take a moment to review some of the most important lessons that I have taken away from […]

Attention Aspiring Teachers: This Class is For You!!

Written by    May 1, 2018

With another semester under our belts and autumn looming much closer than you think, it is never too early to start thinking about classes to take in future terms.  For the past few months, I’ve had the true pleasure to participate in one of the most impactful courses of my college career: ESCE 2189S, otherwise known as the First Education Experience Program (FEEP).  This is […]

Rainbow Celebration

Written by    May 1, 2018

Last week, I started out my graduation celebration by attending Ohio State’s Lavender Rainbow Celebration, the celebration for LGBTQ students graduating from Ohio State hosted by the Ohio State Multicultural Center and Scarlet and Gay, Ohio State’s LGBTQ alumni group. I can’t believe that it was finally my turn to be part of the graduating class at Rainbow Celebration!

Exploring Columbus: German Village

Written by    May 1, 2018

Another place in my city that I’ve never visited is German Village, despite hearing a lot of great things about it. Since it’s just a 10 minute drive from campus, I headed over to the area with a friend to see what all the hype was about. Our first stop (and biggest priority) was The Book Loft. I’ve heard it’s big enough to get lost […]
