Opinion: No one is safe on- or off-campus around Ohio State

October 13, 2014
I am just your average student. I live off campus in an apartment. I often spend weeknights at the library and weekend nights out around Columbus. And when I finish my homework or leave the party I’m at, I walk home.  Recently I took my usual walk down Pearl Street back to my apartment at about 7 p.m. As I reached the intersection of 17th Avenue and Pearl Street, a cop pulled up next to me and asked me to please be careful walking alone. I was thankful he stopped. I felt protected knowing that a higher authority, this police officer, was looking out for me.  However, when I really… Read more

Ohio State launches office to connect community with volunteer options

September 15, 2014
An out-of-body experience helped an Ohio State official develop one of the university’s newest initiatives. OSU’s Office of Volunteer Relations was partially inspired after Andy Gurd, chief operating officer of the OSU Alumni Association, realized there was no official route for volunteering through OSU during a speech he gave at an alumni club event in New York, he said. “As I’m speaking to the club, I almost had an out-of-body experience that I really hope that nobody raises their hand and says, ‘Hey Andy, how do I volunteer at Ohio State?’ because I really didn’t know the answer — and I work here,” he said. The Office of Volunteer Relations… Read more
