Freshman year: class reviews

Written by    May 16, 2018

Well, my first year at OSU is over (wasn’t I just walking around the involvement fair last week? Using google maps to find my classes?) and it feels so weird. It absolutely flew by, and to think I’m only doing that a few more times in my life is crazy. Anyways, enough with my sentimentality. I thought it would be helpful to review my classes […]

All of my professors have posted my grades on Buckeyelink, so now it’s time for me to review all of the classes for my last semester of undergrad! Let’s see how they lived up to the predictions I made at the beginning of the semester.

New Zealand Blog 1: I’m Flying, You Fools

Written by    May 16, 2018

I feel a little bit like Bilbo in the beginning of “The Hobbit”. You know that gif where he finally yells, “I’m going on an adventure”? If you think he’s excited, that’s a common misconception from the movie. In the book, even after Bilbo agrees to go on the adventure with Gandalf and the dwarves, J.R.R. Tolkien cleverly weaves in Bilbo’s lack of enthusiasm by […]

My school is beautiful: An appreciation post

Written by    May 16, 2018

One of the things I’m absolutely passionate about is photography. This year, I’ve loved being able to walk to dozens of gorgeous shooting places, whether that be buildings, natural scenery, or just generally aesthetically-pleasing backgrounds. I know lots of students factor in “location and look” to their college choice, and I have a feeling that big city schools don’t get the appreciation they deserve. In high […]

School Spirit, Why Ohio State?

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 […]
