Report: Former Alabama offensive lineman Chad Lindsay to transfer to Ohio State

April 22, 2014
Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer said he was not pleased with where his offensive line sat following spring practice. However, he appears to have taken a step in further bolstering that unit for his team. Alabama redshirt-junior transfer Chad Lindsay is set to sign with the Buckeyes, according to a report from CBS National college football writer Jeremy Fowler Tuesday. Lindsay, who is listed as 6-foot-2-inches tall and 302 pounds on Alabama’s official roster, is available to suit up right away for the Buckeyes as he has already graduated from Alabama. Lindsay participated in eight games last season for the Crimson Tide, starting four. An OSU spokesman told The … Read more

Editorial: Students should be 1st priority at Ohio State

April 22, 2014
LANTERN STAFF   It’s easy for Ohio State to have an off year at one point or another in its 144-year history. The phrase that has been used by polite company is “a year of transition.” Everyone knows the backstory by now: then-President E. Gordon Gee stepped down in June, and in July, Joseph Alutto assumed the interim presidency. The several months that followed involved a search for OSU’s next leader, who was announced in January to be Dr. Michael Drake. That is the big picture of what has been going on at the university, and what will likely be the only thing many people can recall about the 2013-14… Read more

Opinion: Time at Ohio State, The Lantern inspires nostalgia, gratitude

April 22, 2014
I’m a nostalgic person. I’m a fervent collector of ticket stubs, old notes and photographs. I like reminiscing because I’m fortunate enough to have so many fond memories to look back on, and I like to marvel at change and the way people grow. I’m not graduating this semester, and I’m not even at the age for it. I’ve attended Ohio State for three years, but I’m already nostalgic about all the changes that have come and gone in my life, and I don’t think it’s ever too early to reflect on them. Ohio State, with its people and its opportunities, has impacted my life in too many ways to… Read more

Opinion: Transparency important in Buckeye-enthralled campus culture

April 22, 2014
It’s hard to describe the feeling of having only two finals, one paper, one bar crawl and a walk across the field in Ohio Stadium left of my time at Ohio State. It didn’t sink in that I was actually leaving when I applied for graduation or picked up my cap and gown, but here on my last day putting out a newspaper as Editor-in-chief of The Lantern, it is finally starting to feel real. I’ve dedicated a lot of time during my college career to The Lantern — about 2 1/2 years to be exact. During that time, there have been many sleepless nights, studying for exams I wasn’t… Read more

Ohio State holds onto administrators with ‘competitive’ compensation

April 22, 2014
It’s expected that the people leading an institution with the scope of Ohio State will be well compensated. What is less expected, though, is that those administrators on average make several times the amount an average faculty member makes, and more than their peers at comparable universities. Gene Smith formally joined the ranks of those administrators this year. Smith, OSU’s athletic director, was given the additional title of vice president and granted a four-year contract extension with a pay raise Jan. 28. His contract is now set to expire June 30, 2020, and his base salary is $940,484, up from $840,484 in 2013. He can now be considered one of… Read more

Boston Strong: A year later, the city stands

April 22, 2014
For one Ohio State student, “Boston Strong” is more than a slogan. “The T-shirts and the posters and whatnot that say ‘Boston Strong’ on them, to a lot of people those are just the memorial slogan for what occurred, but for us it’s a sign of how close Boston is as a city,” said Taylor Landes, a fourth-year in international studies who is from Boston. A year ago, Landes said she knew Boston was a strong city, but after being about the length of a football field away from blasts at the finish line of the 117th Boston Marathon, she said that mindset was only strengthened. “Boston has always been… Read more

OUABudget nears $2.15 million for fiscal year 2014

April 22, 2014
The Big Free Concert might have been free for students to attend, but the Ohio Union Activities Board had a significant budget to pay for Childish Gambino and his supporting acts. The OUAB budget was just shy of the $2.1 million mark for last year, but exceeded that in 2014. OUAB was allocated about $2.1 million for fiscal year 2013 (July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013) while this year, the organization has a budget of $2.15 million. The organization is funded through the $37.50 student activity fee paid by each student each semester, and 53.2 percent of the total amount amassed through the fee was allotted to OUAB each… Read more

Ohio State funding recommendations include $76.9M for renovations

April 22, 2014
Ohio State seems to be taking the lion’s share of state funding to repair and maintain existing facilities, despite a newly implemented system designed to unify the funding request process. Maintenance and repair was an approximately $167 million piece of the list of recommended higher education projects totaling $404.5 million in the Ohio Higher Education Funding Commission recommendations for 2015-16. The money budgeted for maintenance and repair equals roughly the tuition cost of 16,658 in-state undergraduates at Ohio State’s Columbus campus for 2013-14 school year. The Ohio Higher Education Funding Commission is a collaborative effort of public college and university leaders established by Ohio Gov. John Kasich in 2011 to… Read more
