Booze, books and the balance: Businesses, bars near campus rake in big bucks

December 24, 2014
Books, bank and booze. Three things many students consider quintessential to the college experience — and all items that can be found on High Street. Yet of all three college “necessities,” it appears the latter is the most abundant. Sprinkled across a 1.2-mile stretch of the University District’s portion of High Street lie two bookstores, four banks and more than 20 bars. And that’s not including bars in the University District located about six blocks or less off High Street. Tack those bars onto the count, and the total number of off-campus bars jumps to roughly 30. And there’s more. There are also restaurants on High Street that serve alcohol,… Read more

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

October 13, 2014

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
