Being a health science major is exhausting! Honestly, just being in college is exhausting. My days are often busy, crazy, and filled with lots of coffee, which is also a very normal “college thing.”
This vlog is just a quick sneak peek into what an average Monday in my life looks like! I usually start off the day getting up around 7:45 a.m. or 8 a.m. Insert first cup of coffee here.
Next, I head over to my art class, a nice and relaxing class that I’m taking to fulfill one of my undergraduate requirements. I haven’t taken an art class since elementary school, and it’s been a ton of fun. This class is also a great way to take a little break from my crazy stress.
Usually after art, I head to one of my favorite places in Findlay – George House! Insert … Read More »
College. At one point, it was stereotyped as a four-year party where students took a few classes and had little responsibility. Now, college has transformed into a three-ring circus, where students are tasked with juggling many things. My senior year is more like a five-ring circus though; where class, career prospecting, working, extracurricular and social activities occupy my day. Here is a breakdown of what I experience daily:
Classes. Every college student takes classes, and this semester I am taking six (eighteen credit hours). I have a mix of general education and business-oriented classes with homework, papers, projects, presentations and exams. While at times the classwork seems like a lot, I enjoy it because most of the courses cover areas I am passionate about.
Career Prospecting. As a senior, making sure I land a job post-graduation is very important. I am constantly … Read More »
Monday night of exams every semester Campus Program Board hosts Late Night Munchies in Henderson. You don’t need a meal plan to come to this late-night study break, which includes live music and free food. CPB always has really creative ideas to match the theme of the night to the style of the artist playing. One semester, they had a Sesame Street theme and another semester they turned Henderson into a jazz club.
This year, CPB brought in Ari Herstand, a vocal-looper who as a single performer sang to trumpets, guitars, piano and other voices– all created by him. It was a really unique experience. Ari had an amazing voice which was very easy to find relaxing while still being energetic enough to keep his rotating audience engaged.
This was the first year I didn’t help CPB set up the event and … Read More »
For part of my major (and most of the communication and art majors) there is a huge capstone project at the end of your college career in which everything you have learned in all your classes is put to use as you work with an actual client. Without going into much detail, it is a massive project. And usually you kiss your social life goodbye during the two semesters the class spans. But I think this is a mistake.
With so much stress on one aspect of your life it would be easy to crumple under the weight of it all. That’s why it’s important to still go out and have fun once in awhile. By no means does this mean you go out with your friends every night (even though by your senior year you’re all probably 21). What it … Read More »

You know when people say that college is challenging and hard to get used to? They are not lying! Coming in I thought that adjusting to a college sport and classes wouldn’t be so bad, because so many people do it. News flash, it is tough. Even though I am only taking 14 credit hours, it felt like 1000 in the beginning of the semester! Then on top of that, volleyball season started right away before classes even began. I was drowning in homework and the demands of my sport.
I realized that something else people don’t lie about is “there is a light at the end of the tunnel.” One week I sat down and put everything together. I wrote and planned out everything I did throughout a week like practice, lifting, class, tutor sessions, … Read More »
Like every college student I have happened to come across, I love to be asleep. I cherish it. I look forward to it. I also end up forgoing it for homework assignments, movie marathons, horse shows, and nights out. So after a break such as the one we came back from only weeks ago, a break laden with noon wake-ups and midday naps, waking up in the morning for class is one of the realities that proves so easily forgotten and so difficult to reclaim. Especially because itâ€™s January, your bed is warm but the walk outside is not, and you already were up too late streaming missed episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, forgetting how much sleep you need to be a functional person during the semester. Or maybe that was just me. So when I made the trek out of … Read More »
