Columbus To-Do List 3

This semester, my HES group decided to visit Chop Shop on High Street for our Columbus to do list.  Chop Shop is a burger restaurant just north of main campus.  It has many different options on what to order from burgers to fries to milkshakes.  My group really enjoyed just hanging out there and talking while watching and discussing what was going on on the many TVs around the place.

While there, we ran into another HES group who was also visiting.  We also learned more about each other as we talked about many different things.  Not all of us really knew either very well before being placed into this group and this outing was a great way to get to know each other more.

I would definitely go back and recommend it to a friend because of the good food and the convenience of the location to Drackett’s location.  It super nice that it’s within walking distance from campus.  My group had fun going on this adventure and were able to bond over our collective confusion able curling.

Columbus To Do List 2

For my next two stops on the to do list, I visited COSI and One Line Coffee.

At COSI, my roommates, Katie and Sarah, and I explored multiple exhibits.  My favorite was the ocean exhibit.  We all really enjoyed playing with all the water activities.  We also had a fun time cramming into the submarine as picture below.

It was dark and very cramped, but we managed to all squeeze in.  Although COSI is aimed at a younger crowd, we still had a lot of fun as college students, especially with the tightrope unicycle.  I would definitely recommend this to a friend or to any one.  COSI is a great place for learning while also being very enjoyable for all ages.

I visited One Line Coffee by myself to study for midterms.  While there, I ordered a hot chocolate and enjoyed the indie music that played as I studied for chemistry. I really liked the decoration and set up of the place.  Many people brought very cute dogs when I was there.

I would definitely recommend this place to a friend as a nice place to study or as a just a cool place to get coffee.  I’ll be coming back here for sure for more study sessions.

My favorite experience for the Columbus To Do List was probably COSI.  I really enjoyed all the activities and the company I was with.  During these experiences, I learned a lot more about the set up of Columbus and all the cool different areas and neighborhoods.  It has made me want to explore different areas of the city and see the different neighborhoods and the unique things about them.

For anyone wanting to do something similar, I would recommend really taking the time to enjoy all the different things each place has to offer.  There are so many cool things to do in Columbus, and some of the best aren’t always the most flashy.

Columbus To Do List

I decided to the a list based on neighborhood.  I’m really looking forward to getting to see more of Columbus and it’s different neighborhoods, especially the different types of architecture in each neighborhood.  So far, it’s been a great way to explore Columbus and learn more about the place that I’m calling home for the next few years and possibly beyond.  I really enjoy having an excuse to go out and do fun things because it’s homework.  I’m really looking forward to exploring Columbus beyond this list and finding my favorite spots to chill, study, and to hang out with my friends.

My first trip was to German Village with Anna Cotterman and Sarah Rish.  We visited the Book Loft and Stauff’s Coffee Roasters.  At Book Loft we looked all the sections and I got a bit lost in both the physical and mental sense.   I purchased an Alice In Wonderland mug.  At Stauff’s we all got different drinks.  I got hot chocolate which was amazing.   During this time I learned a lot of different things.  I learned about some of the architecture of a few of the buildings and housed near by from Anna.  I also learned to grab a map next time I got to Book Loft so I don’t get lost.  I would definitely go back because of how much fun I had and how interesting it was.  I like to try different coffee shops and some of the different food places in German Village.  I learned more about Schwartz Castle from the documentary and want to go back and visit, as it is said to be haunted.

Artifact 1:

Running track and cross country in high school really helped shape who I am today.  I gave me confidence and promoted living a healthy lifestyle.  I was able to make some of my closest friends through my team.  I have so many good memories of all the adventures we went on.  It boosted my self esteem and made me into who I am today.  I couldn’t imagine my life without these amazing experiences and all the great relationships I gained.

Artifact 2:

During fall break, I went on a trip to NYC with the engineering scholars groups.  I had an amazing time on the trip and it really helped me bond with some friends I already had and helped me make new friends.  We explored many different places, ate great food, and even started a band, RPTG.  I loved the experience so much and am so glad that I was able make new friends.  We hope to return as group sometime and make new memories.
