How to Stay Organized and Conquer Busy Weeks

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

The sophomore slump is real. This semester I’m taking 18 credit hours and I’m involved in too many extracurriculars. College is still a blast, but every week this semester I’ve felt like I’m running around like a chicken with my head cut off because I’m so busy. Figuring out your own balancing act is an important part of college. Here are some tips to help […]

My first (and last) Michigan game

Written by    Dec 3, 2018

This was definitely one of my favorite weekends ever. As I’ve mentioned before in other blog posts, I was never a football person until I came here. I was in marching band in high school, so I attended every single football game for my school … and I didn’t pay attention to a single one of them. Then I came here and I became super […]

Stories from a football school

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I chose to go to a football school. That isn’t to say that my school is not strong in academics, research, and global impact; actually, it’s great in all of those too. I just mean that football is such an integral part of life at Ohio State that you can’t get by without it, and it contributes a lot to the student experience. I grew […]

Thank you, Ohio State

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

It seems the sun is finally setting on my time here at The Ohio State University. During my final semester as a student, I have been taking more time than usual to reflect on my college journey. It all started on an airplane. I was trying to decide between Ohio State and another university. I wrote down all the pros and cons for each school […]

A Tasty Night

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

I went to my first OUAB event of the year recently, and this one was different than any other one I had been to before. Claire King, the head chef for Buzzfeed’s Tasty came to talk about how she ended up working at Buzzfeed and how they make those super-fast cooking demonstrations that take over your Facebook feed. When I got to the event, I was […]

It’s official: I’m graduating early

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

It’s time to celebrate. My Honors Contract was accepted! This means that all my classes in past, present and future, as well as my character and academic standing, have been approved for me to graduate with Honors distinction. More importantly, I have enough credits and enough rigorous coursework to graduate a year early. I’m only a sophomore, and I get to graduate next year. How cool is […]

Home? For Fall Break?

Written by    Nov 14, 2018

Yes, you read that right. After two years of leaving campus but not actually going home during fall break (once for a vacation to New York, once to Minneapolis for a family bat mitzvah,) I finally got a chance to relax in Cleveland during the second week of October. I drove home with one of my housemates that Wednesday, with a final exam behind me and five […]

You are What You Eat (Pt. II)

Written by    Oct 24, 2018

Part of a series on eating on campus. Read part one. Like most college students (and humans everywhere, let’s be honest), I love pizza. Unlike many college students, however, one of my main food groups is not pizza. I try to eat healthy. But Ohio State provides the best of both worlds: mouth-watering, customizable and healthy (if you pick your toppings right!) pizza. My absolute […]

The importance of networking

Written by    Oct 24, 2018

“Networking” is a term you never hear until college, and when you do hear it, it seems vague at best. Personally, I didn’t think networking made sense; how am I supposed to actively “network,” and is that really what’s going to present opportunities to me? Aren’t my jobs and experiences going to come from going to career fairs, handing out my resume, and completing applications? The truth […]
