If Your Alumni Dad Comes to Visit OSU...

If Your Alumni Dad comes to visit OSU...

He's going to want to see campus. When you start walking around, however, he's going to get lost.

When he gets lost, you're going to have to remind him that it's been a few years since he's been at school.

You'll continue walking and at least he'll remember Mirror Lake.

He'll be jealous of all the new improvements that OSU's added recently.

When he starts ranting about new things, he'll definitely want to see the RPAC.

He'll want to work out and play tennis, and run the track, and take a class, and...

you'll have to distract him to get him back on track.

By the time you get to the Oval, he's probably going to be hungry. He'll ask you to go to Sloopy's.

He'll be overwhelmed by how big and loud the Student Union can be, so you'll have to get in and out pretty fast.

When he's finished eating, he'll probably want dessert. So he'll ask to get Buckeye Donuts.

On your way down High Street, he'll point out how different everything is again.

He'll get confused by the giant bull's head on one of the buildings and you'll have to explain the existence of Bulls to him.

When he hears about Bulls, he'll probably want to dance.

He will start "dad dancing" in the street. You'll have to pretend that you don't know him until you get to Buckeye Donuts.

Once you get a donut, he'll probably get tired and want to relax back at your place.

When you get back to your dorm/apartment, he'll remember how small your living space is.

He'll want to talk about your life at school and reminisce about, "the old days."

When he starts talking about, "the old days," he'll want to go visit the Thirsty Scholar.

After you've been all over campus, it'll be time for him to head home.

He'll tell you that he had a great time.

and chances are if he tells you he had a good time...

he'll want to visit again.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
