Balancing a Rigorous Major (Nutrition) and Social Life

    There are so many opportunities at OSU, it can be enticing but overwhelming. There are over a 1000 clubs, volunteer activities galore, and so many other opportunities as well. (My D traveled to Israel over the Christmas break on an OSU related trip).

    And the academics are different from high school. My D was a good student in high school, took many AP courses, etc. But college is not high school and requires more work. She also became involved in a number of volunteer activities at OSU which took up time. And has done some dating. And became active in a campus religious center,
    and is on the Scholars and Honors Programming Board, etc etc.

    So the second semester has been about really examining what is important to her. And the amount of time it all takes.

    My D loves loves loves OSU. She is so happy there. But it is hard work and an adjustment, and prioritizing her time
    is an important part of her learning curve.

    I am sure you will find your way too. I think working at the Lantern sounds really neat, it is possible you can go talk to them on one of your orientations and begin to get some information about working there.
