Booze, books and the balance: How does alcohol play into the college culture?

December 9, 2014
On a recent Saturday in Columbus, bars opened before 6 a.m. to accommodate for the gameday ahead. That’s how early some Ohio State fans started drinking in anticipation of the noon football game against the University of Michigan. Earlier that week, about 14,000 people had flocked to Mirror Lake for the annual tradition where fans jump into the lake to show — in some way — their disdain for Michigan and love for the Buckeyes. Many of the people who jumped were intoxicated, and four medical transports and four arrests were made at Mirror Lake that night, according to the University Police log. It’s events like those of Beat Michigan… Read more

Situations at Florida State, North Carolina a reminder of potential campus emergencies

December 7, 2014
It was gut-wrenching. The bangs didn’t register as gunshots — until a frantic librarian was heard calling 911. That’s how Sarah Evans, a fourth-year in sport management at Florida State University, described her growing fear as she realized her life was in danger. Evans was just 30 feet around the corner from an entrance to Strozier Library when an armed gunman opened fire in the library on Nov. 20. In the midst of attempting to discern what was happening, she saw a man bleeding on the ground behind a desk. “I was just standing there, frozen kind of … and that’s when I was like, ‘Holy crap, I gotta get… Read more

Second half surge propels Ohio State women’s basketball to win over Winthrop, 66-52

December 7, 2014
After a lackluster first half, the Ohio State women’s basketball team swung the momentum to defeat visiting Winthrop (S.C.), 66-52, on Sunday. Coach Kevin McGuff said a renewed intensity allowed OSU to take control of the second half. “We really attacked a lot better in the second half,” McGuff said. “We got more stops, more turnovers (that) allowed us to play in transition a little bit more, and overall generated more quality shots.” The Buckeyes (5-4) opened the game with a 9-3 run in the first five minutes of the half. Winthrop (4-3, 1-0) rallied back, though, and score 10 unanswered points to take the lead. The Eagles continued to… Read more
