Another semester at The Ohio State University is upon us, and what a way to kick it off! Congratulations to our football team for their amazing victory in Texas!
With the semester change we are always excited to just launch our new Spring Menu for our Main Dining Room. While still using our local purveyors, our culinary team came up with a menu that is sure to make everyone’s taste buds happy. Highlighted below are some of our new offerings.
With the new semester upon us, this is the time of year for the cold and snow. Here are a few helpful tips to keep warm and safe this winter.
- Prepare for the weather. If the forecast calls for snow, be sure to leave early to give your car extra time to warm up while you clean it off. Keep extra distance between you and the car in front of you; if you have to suddenly stop, you may not have enough space and could risk a collision.
- Dress warm. With wind chills below zero, frost bite can happen in a matter of minutes. Be sure to always have gloves, hats and scarves readily available for those unexpected below zero wind chills.
- Protect yourself. One of the largest causes of injuries in the winter is snow shoveling. Take advantage of neighborhood kids who are willing to do it for a few dollars. If you are determined to do it yourself, use a snow blower. And the most important, if you start feeling chest pain IMMEDIATELY stop, go inside and chew four baby aspirin, and call 911.
- Do not drink alcohol before going outside. It gives you a false sense of warmth, and leaves you colder than you would have been if you had not had a drink.
- Make sure your car has a small emergency kit in case your car breaks down. Things to include: blankets, flashlights, batteries, bottles of water, snack bars, flares and red flags. If you are ever in a situation that your car breaks down when you are out in a snow storm, you need to make sure you can stay warm and hydrated until you can get help.
