I recently walked across campus to run some errands–namely, picking up some course packets. Usually I’m just walking from the parking lot to Gerlach and back. Campus has changed a lot since I was an undergrad. Since graduating, Fisher College’s campus and the Schottenstein Center opened, RPAC, Knowlton Hall, the 4-H Center, and the Psychology Building were built, the South Campus Gateway was created, the Horseshoe, the Ohio Union and Thompson Library were refurbished/rebuilt, and so on. It’s amazing how much has changed, but some things are still the same… like the Oval. It’s always so beautiful.
It feels a little odd sometimes studying on Fisher’s campus; it’s certainly part of the rest of the university, but it’s as if it resides in its own little world within Ohio State. It’s very conveniently located for us commuters just off Lane Avenue, but since I only have classes in Gerlach Hall, I feel like I’m going to a much smaller school now than I did when I was an English major at OSU. Back then I was constantly crisscrossing the Oval to go from English class to Biology and then back to the bus to head to my car on the West Campus lot. A lot less exercise is required for the WPMBA students!
