If Ohio Colleges Were Cheeses

The only comparison that really matters.

If Ohio Colleges Were Cheeses

Lately I’ve noticed a new trend floating around the Internet. Left and right, people have been comparing Ohio colleges to everything, from the cast of "Friends" to the cast of "How I Met Your Mother" to the cast of "Parks and Recreation." However, one important comparison has been ignored. And so, I am here to answer the age-old question: What kind of cheese would Ohio colleges be?

Ohio State University: Cheddar

OSU is definitely the big cheese. The comparisons are endless—everyone knows it, most Ohioans love it, and it comes in mild and sharp varieties. Many people feel that the beloved Buckeyes were slighted of the 2016 National Championship, which can also be said for medium cheddar cheese, which was the second runner-up in the 2015 United States Championship Cheese Contest. When it comes to Ohio colleges, OSU is all cheddar.

University of Dayton: Swiss

The students at UD tend to be kind and happy people, which can also be said for people who eat Swiss cheese. Dayton’s stunning campus is comparable to Swiss’s signature holes, as both create something visually unique. Plus Dayton is a Catholic school, and Swiss is definitely a hole-y cheese!

University of Cincinnati: Mozzarella

UC is a great school filled with intelligent students, but it gets a bad rep for being near a sketchy side of town in downtown Cincinnati. Mozzarella also gets a bad rep for being the cheese most commonly used in string cheese, which some people find to be weird. We all just need to look past the rough exterior and appreciate UC for how great it really is, just like we need to look past the fact that string cheese is too chewy and appreciate the deliciousness of real, moist mozzarella. Yum.

Oberlin College: Gouda

Oberlin and Gouda cheese are both seen as mysterious and fancy, but no one really knows what either of them are actually like. We all just kind of assume that they’re for people much classier than we are. Also, Oberlin made history by being the first college in America to allow African American students in 1835, just as Gouda made history by being the first cheese to allow people to sound elitist just by naming a type of cheese. “Oh, I’d like some gouda on my toast. With some cracked pepper and a side of arugula. I’ll also take a cup of tea that I’ll drink with my pinky up. Because I’m fancy.”

Wittenberg University: Bleu Cheese

Wittenberg is a great college with great students, but when you’re listing Ohio colleges, people tend to forget about it. The same can be said for bleu cheese, which is often forgotten while listing cheese. Probably because it’s a crumbly cheese. Also, bleu cheese tastes great on bacon cheeseburgers, and Wittenberg students probably like bacon cheeseburgers.

Miami University: Goat Cheese

Miami University is a lot like goat cheese in that it seems cool and fancy, but in reality most people don’t like it.

Ohio University: Kraft American Singles

OU is known for its parties, and it’s a fact that most drunk people enjoy eating Kraft American Singles. OU also has a great journalism program, and journalists probably eat a lot of sandwiches. Kraft American Singles are the perfect cheese for sandwiches: Delicious, convenient, and a little bit plastic-y. Go Bobcats? More like go Kraft! (This article is not sponsored by Kraft.)

Ohio has a ridiculous number of colleges so the options for a higher education in our great Buckeye state are practically endless. I hope that the next time you think about college in Ohio, you think about cheese. And then eat some cheese. Speaking of, I’m going to go eat some cheese now.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
