Hi, Let’s Be Friends?
Hi, Let's Be Friends?

Hello friends (old and hopefully new!) I am incredibly excited to share my upcoming experiences with you this summer! I’m Li, a fourth-year logistics and marketing major enrolled in the Fisher College of Business. I’m from Brooklyn, Ohio, a small suburb engulfed by Cleveland and Parma. Although cliche, I’m basically your average small town girl […]

Play Ball!
Play Ball!

This weekend I got to go back out exploring downtown Cleveland. Stop 1: Great Lakes Brewing Co. Great Lakes Brewing Co. is located right across the street from the West Side Market. It is a family owned brewery that produces more than 100,000 barrels of beer a year! There was an extremely long wait since […]

I lived through my first California earthquake!
I lived through my first California earthquake!

Well, the time has come-I’m all packed up, my last day of my internship is tomorrow, and I just checked the weather for the first time this summer (Ohio is much more unpredictable than California).  AND Mother Nature was kind and didn’t want me to leave without experiencing an earthquake, so on my 2nd to last day- […]

Switzerland Week 1 – Nänikon-Greifensee
Switzerland Week 1 – Nänikon-Greifensee

My first week in Switzerland was a real learning experience. I was introduced to different aspects of both business and private European culture. The first thing to always remember is bring a map or directions. After sitting on a plane for 8 hours I had to haul my luggage 5 blocks (which turned into 8 […]

The little Ireland of America
The little Ireland of America

Hi everyone! Over the course of my internship, I have gotten a chance to explore the cute little suburb of Dublin, OH. I have lived in Columbus for 3 years or so now and have never really explored all of the surrounding areas. Dublin is actually really nice, with pretty parks, houses, TONS of restaurants, […]

Fun Things to do in Houston
Fun Things to do in Houston

It had been just a few short weeks in Houston but I already felt like I was making serious headway when it came to fitting into the Southern culture. Let’s face it, in the past few weeks I had discovered and devoured Tex Mex food, tackled the biggest plate of the best BBQ in Houston […]

Eveything’s bigger in Texas and Smaller in Mackinac
Eveything's bigger in Texas and Smaller in Mackinac

While I know Dow has locations everywhere I never thought I’d get to see any of them outside of Midland this summer. Like I’ve blogged about already, I got to go to Philadelphia my 3rd day here. Now I have also been to Michigan Operations (which is here in Midland but it’s the big plant […]

Give My Regards to Broadway……
Give My Regards to Broadway......

….Remember me to Heralds Square…. So this past weekend I went to NEW YORK CITY with the other interns for a concept shopping trip and it was SO AMAZING. Our flight left Friday morning at 6:15 am and arrived in New York around 8:30.  We drove straight to the Abercrombie & Fitch 5th Avenue Flagship store and were […]

NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.
NESTLE: Good Food, Good Life.

  Taste Testing- My title couldn’t be more accurate.  Nestle is 150% providing me with a summer full of “Good Food and Good Life”.  About three weeks after I started working at Nestle this summer I finally went downstairs to the basement to participate in the daily taste testing of our potential new products. Since then, […]

Pixie Dust, Princesses and Pirates. Oh my!
Pixie Dust, Princesses and Pirates. Oh my!

So much has happened since I got down to Disney and I have so much to say in such little time! I’ll try my best to really describe everything in the coming weeks. For those of you who haven’t been keeping up with me on Facebook or in real life, I work at the World […]

Could life be any better?
Could life be any better?

Four day weeks: Very much so appreciated when you’re working full time!  We had a 4 day week last week because of the 4th of July and this week we have another one (sort of) because Nestle is holding an “Offsite Logistics Event” this Friday at Universal Studios.  I don’t know that much about the […]

Life in the Burgh
Life in the Burgh

After 4 weeks of living in Pittsburgh, it is safe to say I finally have a routine. I take the 71A bus in every morning and enjoy $4 lasagna on Wednesdays from Mama Lucia’s. I love having my own place and a city to be a tourist in. So below are some of my recommendations […]

“And I’m proud to say that I love this place…”
"And I'm proud to say that I love this place..."

Not a weekend or even a day has gone by when I haven’t had something to do. And I am definitely living in “small town USA.” Midland, MI – where Dow is headquartered – has a population of about 42,000 people yet there is never a dull moment. While I haven’t stayed in Midland for […]

Next stop, Mullach Íde
Next stop, Mullach Íde

After finals, nearly all of my friends departed back to their hometowns and places where they were interning and left me by my lonesome in Columbus.  After working a few jobs the past three weeks to raise a little extra money and pass the time, I wasn’t nearly as excited as I should have been […]

Movin’ Out

It’s been about a week or two since I’ve arrived in Orlando to participate in the Disney College Program and the one lesson that I’ve learned is to take logistics seriously! You would think that most of the difficult work involves apply for jobs, going through interviews and waiting for a job offer, but I […]

True Life: Lexi Merritt went to Vegas.
True Life: Lexi Merritt went to Vegas.

Vegas.  Yes, as crazy as this sounds- It’s true.  My nice, laid back, relaxing weekend I was planning on having turned into a trip to Vegas with another Nestle Intern, Kelly Sipple!  We met one of my really good friends from Virginia in Vegas for a night!  Everyone who really knows me knows that this is […]

Bring on that Colorado Sunshine!
Bring on that Colorado Sunshine!

Someone once told me that Columbus only gets an average of 70-some sunny days a year. As much as I love this city, that is a pretty depressing statistic. So when I recently found out that Fort Collins, Colorado, where I’ll be interning this summer, has about 300 days of sunshine per year, needless to […]

Patrick Lillie: Off to Ireland
Patrick Lillie: Off to Ireland

Hello everyone!  As the school year winds down, I hope everyone stays focused and does well on finals.  My name is Patrick Lillie and I can speak for everyone when I say this recent great weather has made it difficult to stay inside and study!  On top of the weather, there is one other regard that is engrossing me […]

From C-Bus to H-Town
From C-Bus to H-Town

It’s just a little over a week until I load all my belongings into my cramped car and my head is spinning with thoughts….what clothes do I need to pack? Where can I rent furniture? And is it true that people can survive wearing long pants to work in 100+ degree heat? I’m anxious about […]

California…here I come!

Hello Everyone!

I […]

People of the Subway... aka New York's Finest

** In order to take these pictures, I had to stay extremely incognito, stealthy, and inconspicuous. Enjoy ** As summer flies by and people try to fit in as many summer trips and vacations as possible, the car starts to rack up miles and over-priced gas takes its toll on the bank account.  I, on […]
