Columbus in 60: The Sights of Our City: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orG5rqt83-w&feature=youtu.be
As a high school senior preparing to graduate from a school located a mere 20 minutes from Ohio’s capital city, I was more than a little hesitant to accept the offer to attend Ohio State. After all, college was supposed to be an exciting adventure, and in my opinion—the same opinion held by many of my Dublin-born-and-raised classmates—Columbus was not exciting and would definitely not be considered a place of adventure.
Nevertheless, I decided to attend, as I knew that Ohio State offered academic opportunities that greatly overshadowed my desire to seek out a more interesting change of surroundings.
Fast forward to August 2013. As I stood in my dorm room, contemplating what to do now that I had unpacked my numerous boxes of pillows, books and snacks, I once again questioned my decision to attend a school located in such a mundane city. “What am I going to do here in Columbus for four years?” I asked myself. “Columbus is the most boring city in the world.”
Oh, how wrong I was.
