I Fell In Love

The other day I was thinking why I loved coming to Ohio State. So I decided to make a list and this is what I came up with.

1) Football
When deciding on a college, football tickets are really what pushed me over the edge. I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything. It is such an amazing thing to be at a game and watch the games live. My friends back home are always asking me if they can somehow get to a game. I feel so privileged to be able to go to the games when so many people would love to go too.

2) Opportunities
I love all the activities and opportunities OSU has to offer. Intramural sports have really opened up a lot of doors for me. I have met so many great friends because of it. I am also involved in a softball team on main campus with my brother and sisters. I love doing that because it lets me spend time with my family, while also meeting new people.

3) Friends/Family
I love all my friends that I have met because of OSU. And also one of my friends from high school goes to main campus so I am able to stay closer to her too. Being at OSU lets me be close to my brother and sisters too. All three of them have graduated or are going too from OSU. My sister still goes their and my brother also works now for OSU, so I am able to still be close to them. Having something like OSU in common makes a great bonding thing for my family. It always gives us something to talk about.

4) Education
OSU has one of the best education programs. I know that going here I am getting the education that I need and want. Enough said.

5) Memories
Here at Ohio State I have had some of the best memories that I wouldn’t trade for the world. There have been ups and downs but holding on to those memories get me by. Spending time with my friends and just hanging out laughing is one of my favorite things to do. I love just to sit back and enjoy those moments with my friends.

Good post. I agree with all your reasons why you love ohio state. Football tickets is definitly my favorite thing about going here. Waking up early and starting to party on game days, i dont think anything beatas that. Intermural sports are also a big part in my life, I enjoy playing basketball and softball as well. I have met many friends when attending football games that I still talk to almost every day. Very good post overall.

I hear you. The only reason that I came to OSU was because of all the publicity. I know that lots of people went here, and I know that they like to party as well. After I found out that I was coming to this campus I was ready to bail for Toledo. I got talked in to it by my monter and now im here. Things could have been smother and I meat some wonderful people. I still go out and most of all I’m not overwhelmed by how many people there are. Well let me not rock you to sleep. Good blog.

Good stuff. I do think "Opportunites" might be better labeled "Social Oportunities." Also:

"All three of them have graduated or are going too from OSU. My sister still goes their. . ."

That passage has a misplaced modifier (prepositional phrase), the wrong choice of to/too/two and the wrong choice of there/their/they're. Bring your guesses to our conference on Monday.

5/5
