Ohio State planetarium opens roof for partial solar eclipse viewing

October 24, 2014
If Columbus got a little darker yesterday afternoon, it’s not because of clouds. The sun was blocked by the moon — a phenomenon more commonly known as a solar eclipse. Meanwhile, some Ohio State students took to the rooftop of the OSU planetarium to see the rare moment. The solar eclipse was visible in North America in different degrees. In Columbus, people were able to see a partial eclipse once it reached maximum overlapping, said Wayne Schlingman, director of the OSU planetarium. The phenomenon of a partial solar eclipse happens when the moon passes between the sun and the earth, covering part of the sun. OSU’s planetarium threw a free… Read more

Ohio State seeks dismissal of Jonathan Waters’ lawsuit

October 23, 2014
After remaining mostly mum since being sued by former marching band director Jonathan Waters, Ohio State said it’s seeking to dismiss Waters’ lawsuit. OSU filed a motion in federal court Wednesday to dismiss and respond to the lawsuit Waters brought against the university. OSU said Waters was terminated July 24 because he knew of a problematic, sexually charged culture in the marching band and didn’t address the problems, according to a Thursday release. The filings also say Waters was an at-will employee who was subject to termination without cause. “He knew the problematic culture of the band well, but failed to adequately or appropriately fulfill his obligation to meaningfully address… Read more

Car2go raises prices, expands service

October 23, 2014
Car2go, a car-sharing service that offers point-to-point location rentals, has implemented an expansion and price increase, a company spokeswoman said. Meanwhile, some students who use the service said higher prices might mean they use car2go less. The rate per minute to use a car has increased 3 cents from 38 cents to 41 cents, said Elise Lampert, a car2go spokeswoman. Meanwhile, the hourly rate to use one of the cars has increased $1 from $13.99 to $14.99 and the daily rate has increased $12 from $72.99 to $84.99, as of Oct. 13, Lampert said. These are the first price increases since the car2go launch in Columbus in 2013. The rates… Read more

Students looking to be officially recognized for their international experience in business will now have the opportunity.

Opposition takes notice of Joey Bosa’s play for Ohio State

October 23, 2014
When the Ohio State football team rolls into town on Saturday, Penn State coach James Franklin knows which player to keep a close eye on. And when it comes to that particular player, he knows the numbers down to the last detail. “Joey Bosa, No. 97, is the guy that jumps out to us the most,” Franklin said at a Tuesday press conference. “He’s a 6-foot-5, 280 pounds defensive tackle and has a team-high nine tackles for a loss and five and a half sacks.” It was a good try by Franklin, but he didn’t quite have Bosa’s measurables correct. The sophomore defensive lineman is actually listed at 278 pounds… Read more

Buckeye women’s volleyball set for pair of Michigan-based opponents

October 23, 2014
It’s Michigan week for the No. 20 Ohio States women’s volleyball team (14-6, 5-3) as it’s scheduled to face Michigan State and Michigan this weekend. While many fans might associate Michigan with the football rivalry, the women’s volleyball team approaches the matchup the same way in their sport, senior defensive specialist Alyssa Winner said. “We came in here on Monday and we were all saying it was Michigan week,” Winner said. “It’s big for us and it means a lot to the school too.” And while the games this weekend have meaning to the team, they also have some personal significance for junior middle blocker Tyler Richardson, a native of… Read more

The Ohio State field hockey team is set to play its final road game of the season against a top-10 opponent.

The Wildcats could pose some problems for OSU in the midfield as they boast two of the top… Read more

Ohio State men’s soccer preparing for first ever matchup with Rutgers

October 23, 2014
In the final stretch of the season, the Ohio State men’s soccer team seems to be getting hot at the right time — or at least taking advantage of a more manageable schedule. After 11 of the Buckeyes’ (6-5-3, 3-2-0) first 12 opponents ranked in the top 60 of the RPI, OSU took care of business against No. 138 Wisconsin and No. 99 Bowling Green in its last two. “This could be one of the most important parts of the season,” senior midfielder Max Moller said. “We want to show for this university and really represent this university really well. This could be the difference for the NCAA Tournament and… Read more
