thumbnail for Olentangy River GreenwaySubmerged for decades, the floodplain of the Olentangy River along the OSU campus has been exposed, thanks to the demolition of the 5th Ave dam. Over the next several years, a more natural riparian ecosystem will re-establish itself, with some help by human hands. Already, I've seen dozens of cranes hunting in the newly formed shallows.

thumbnail for College TraditionsOne of the many places one can buy official Ohio State gear. It's a fairly big store conveniently located on Lane Avenue, not far from any of the sports complexes or the student services building. Also, it is the location of two prominent statues--Buckeye Brutus and Woody Hayes.
