Jon Waters to look for a new job, could be away from music

November 20, 2014
After nearly four months of vying for his job back, ousted Ohio State Marching Band director Jonathan Waters is starting to look beyond the university that fired him — something he said is one of the most difficult decisions he’s ever had to make.  And although he has repeatedly said his only wish is to be reinstated to what was once his dream job, Waters said he’s being a realist and has recognized that his next move might not be in music. “In my job, I needed to be creative and there are a lot of jobs that require creativity,” he said. “In my job, I was a logistics manager… Read more

Faculty and staff’s opinion of workplace culture declines

November 20, 2014
Ohio State faculty and staff’s opinion of workplace culture has decreased over the past three years, according to a recent OSU study. Meanwhile, faculty satisfaction with parking costs and satisfaction with salary also yielded results that showed a decline from previous years. The study asked for the opinion of faculty and staff and found 78.8 percent were satisfied with their position at the university — the lowest percentage recorded in response to this question since the survey was first offered every three years since 2008. According to the “Faculty and Staff Surveys: 2014 Results, 2008, (and) 2011 Comparison” report, published online by the OSU Offices of Human Resources and Institutional… Read more

Ohio State’s Joey Bosa named a Lombardi Award finalist

November 20, 2014
Ohio State sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa is closing in on the school record for sacks in a season, and now he has a shot to pick up a prestigious award. Bosa was named one of four finalists for the Rotary Lombardi Award, with the winner set to be announced Dec. 10 in Houston. The award is presented annually to the best lineman or linebacker in the nation. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., native has tallied 11.5 sacks through 10 games this season, needing just 2.5 more to tie Vernon Gholston’s school record of 14. Bosa’s sack numbers put him on top of the Big Ten, while he also leads the… Read more

Scott’s helping hand sparks new-look Buckeyes

November 20, 2014
In the first two games of the 2013-14 season, the Ohio State men’s basketball team tallied 27 assists. Through two games this season, Shannon Scott has 25. The No. 20 Buckeyes — playing without their top three scorers from last season — are 2-0 and shooting 63.3 percent from the field in those two games. After OSU’s 74-63 win against Marquette on Tuesday, Scott — who had 14 of the team’s 23 assists in the game — said his teammates have a different offensive mindset than they did a year ago. “I think last year, we would play the same way at times, but players didn’t know if they wanted… Read more

Brick by brick: Lego sculptures imagine Columbus in a new age

November 20, 2014
Columbus wasn’t built in a day. In fact, it took one group of avid builders nine years to assemble. An exhibit featuring sculptures made entirely from Legos — “Think Outside the Brick” — is making its third annual appearance at the Columbus Museum of Art’s Center for Creativity starting Friday. The exhibition will explore the city of Columbus through Legos that come in many colors, sizes and shapes. The main installation is built by the Central Ohio Lego Train Club — a group of Ohio-dwelling adults who see the colorful bricks not as a children’s toy, but as an artistic and structural medium. The COLTC’s collaborative model, “Columbus: Real and… Read more

Cal Scruby’s confidence shines in music industry

November 20, 2014
Drake started his music career after starring on popular Canadian TV show “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” Chance the Rapper recorded his first mixtape during a 10-day suspension while he was in high school. Ohio State 2014 alumnus, Cal Scruby, recorded his first project, “Best Foot Forward,” in the Whisper Room on the third floor of the Science and Engineering Library — now called the 18th Avenue Library — while he was a student studying new media and information technology. “It’s like a phone booth sized recording area where the walls are all insulated professionally,” Scruby said. “I just recorded and mixed my own stuff. That whole process probably took (about)… Read more

Letter to the editor: No inappropriate dancing or drinking at marching band dance

November 20, 2014
Letter to the editor: I would like to voice my opinion about the so-called “sexualized culture” and “excessive use of alcohol” of the Ohio State Marching Band. As a former member of the Athletic Band, I’ve had a previous insight into the band culture. When the report initially came out, I was appalled at the accusations made toward this phenomenal group of people.    This past weekend, I was honored to attend the annual Band Dance. As a junior in college, I have attended many club social events and what I observed at this band event somewhat surprised me. Alcohol was not served, which has not been the case at any… Read more

Opinion: Visa policy changes help international students

November 20, 2014
When I woke up on Nov. 10, I opened my WeChat app. One of the first things I noticed was the new American visa policy for China. As an international student and also a Chinese woman, I know how important it is to me, both extending travel visas’ length from a month to 10 years with multiple entry, and student visas from lasting one year to lasting five. This summer, I helped my parents apply for a travel visa to come to the United States for my graduation ceremony.  It was easy, because I had already done it what felt like thousands of times for my F-1 student visa.  For… Read more

Ohio State women’s volleyball completes regular season sweep of Iowa

November 20, 2014
The Ohio State women’s volleyball team got back on the winning side Wednesday as the No. 20 Buckeyes defeated Iowa, completing a season sweep of the Hawkeyes in three sets. The Buckeyes’ (19-10, 10-7) closest set was the second, as their largest lead was three. OSU won the first and second sets by at least five points each  (25-20, 28-26, 25-19). Coach Geoff Carlston said winning that extended second set allowed the momentum to shift toward OSU going into the third. “We weren’t playing well,” Carlston said.  “That (second set) was a game changer.  You lose that one and it’s a different night.” Buckeye junior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell led… Read more
