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 […]

AU18 Review of Non-Major Classes

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

If you’re a communication major, you should read my previous post. But if you’re curious about other classes, keep reading. HUMNTR 2210—Human Nutrition online with Angela Collene This semester I took my last science class ever, which I am thrilled about. I chose this class because I needed a biological science GE credit, and since I took 17 credit hours, I knew having an online […]

AU18 Review of Major Classes

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

Three semesters down and four to go! I took 17 credit hours this semester, so it was pretty crazy. I really enjoyed my Communication classes this semester; they helped confirm that strategic communication is the best major for me. COMM 2367—Persuasive Communication with Kristie Sigler I took this class as a major requirement, but there were also a lot of non-comm majors in the class […]

#Finalsszn Complaints and Study Suggestions

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

I get annoyed during #finalsszn because the libraries are packed. I frequent the library just about every day of the semester — I have my routine; I have my favorite spots; I get in, do homework, get out. So when everyone decides they have to buckle down and study for a few days, I get frustrated that they’re taking up my spots.  It’s like January […]

How Do I Navigate Study Abroad?

Written by    Dec 14, 2018

The piece of advice I’ve heard the most from people post-grad is, “study abroad.” Ohio State offers a huge variety and number of programs, and college is one of the most affordable times to do it because there are so many resources for students. I’m hoping to study abroad in Italy in May, so this semester I’ve been going through the process of figuring out […]
