Bringing the Odyssey to Findlay's Screens

Welcoming The Newest Oiler

Hi all!

Just a few days ago, I was walking out of yoga class and noticed I had a new message. I opened the new message and responded. After the basic introduction, I was asked if I wanted to be a part of the new chapter of The Odyssey. In a heartbeat I responded with a definite yes. Over the past couple years, I have read many articles published by The Odyssey, all of which brought a smile to face, made me realize I'm not the only one that relates to every episode of Gossip Girl or struggled her first year of college. You also learn you're not the only one that has an extreme Netflix addiction and someone better find a place for us addicts and fast.

Summer is just getting heated up and we are finally getting warmed up to being back in our childhood home for the next three months. I know next semester is the last thing on everybody's mind but I have some pretty exciting news for the students here at the University of Findlay.

Over the next few months, a new chapter of The Odyssey will be hitting the screens of everyone's laptops, cellphones and tablets at the University of Findlay. For those of you that are new to the world of The Odyssey, I'll fill you in on what we are all about. Our goal is to allow the voices of college students to be heard through out college campuses. The articles that you will have the opportunity to read will vary from newest news on the upcoming election, to the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy.

You will see articles, stories, lists, letters, interviews and maybe even some random surprises. Our goal here at the University of Findlay's chapter of The Odyssey is to keep you updated on the latest drama of the big bad world or keep you entertained by the newest drama in our own little bubbles. We are all super excited to be a part of your every day college experiences.

So next semester, when your cramming for that Organic Chemistry exam and decide you need a little break (or long break) make sure you pull up the latest at The Odyssey. You never know, we may become your new source of procrastination or maybe even your new venting buddy when that player you dated, breaks your heart.

Either way, we will be your new companion sitting right next to you on the crazy rollercoaster we all know as college.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
