Things to do in Columbus (plus, a little buckeye)

This past weekend, I was able to go to the Columbus Blue Jackets game with my younger sister. While my wonderful Jackets lost 2-3, Erin and I had a blast AND we received free hats!

My younger sister is a freshman at Ohio State and currently applying to the nursing program. I am so happy that she chose to attend OSU – so I can see her a little more frequently AND keep an eye on her. Because truly, what are big sisters for?

I’ve mentioned it in a few previous posts, but I love Columbus, Ohio. I moved here in 2007 when I started at OSU as an undergrad, and I now consider the 614 my home. I moved back to Cincinnati for a summer or two, and then Orlando, Florida when I was working at Walt Disney World. Still, from Southern  Ohio to Florida – there is something special about Columbus.

When entering the MBA program, you are surrounding yourself with resources, both inside and outside school. We have top companies in the Columbus Area (check out this article that appeared in Inc. in 2011), cool neighborhoods when you are ready for some fun and great sports teams (what can I say – I’m a sports girl).

Cool places to around school:

  • Arena District – see a show and have a drink – I’m in heaven!
  • Short North – edgy and express (see my post about Betty’s!)
  • German Village – shopping, bakeries, coffee and beautiful architecture
  • Grandview – Close to campus and great for place for graduate students to go when wanting to relax and enjoy a happy hour

Christmas Break

It has been a great break.  I haven’t had 3+ weeks completely off in a long time.  Even during my undergrad years I was never fully off.  As a rower on the lightweight crew team, every free moment was spent training for the racing season.  It was no surprise that I was a little unsure how to spend my winter break.  To make it easier, I broke up the break into three blocks.

The first block of time off I spent doing nothing… and it was great.  I stayed in Columbus and slowly unwound from the hectic life I lived during finals.  Each day I read the paper, went to the gym, checked on grades, watched movies, attended ugly sweater parties, etc.

For the second block of winter break, I returned to Cincinnati to spend time with my family.  Of course it was great to be home and see everyone, not to mention all the excellent food I ate.  Plus I was able to go to the Bengals v. Chiefs game in which the Bengals clinched the AFC North title.  Hopefully they can make a good run in the playoffs.

Block three officially began when I returned to Columbus a few days ago.  I am currently trying to adjust back to a more realistic life – one with priorities, deadlines, and homework.  I’ve already bought most of my books and now I need to start reading course syllabi and preparing for another quarter at Fisher College.
