A Night with the Stars

October 5, 2018

There’s no experience quite like a trip to a planetarium. At first, it’s kind of weird. The chairs are slightly reclined, the room is pretty dark, and you’re staring up at a giant dark screen. You almost want to fall asleep (actually, you might just doze off for a moment). Then, almost magically, you are travelling through the stars and space in a comfy chair, staring up at the night sky.

One STEP cohort took to the stars with Dr. Susie Whittington and Assistant Director of University Housing, Chelsea Black, for this truly unique experience. Under the direction of Wayne Schlingman, students were able to enjoy one of Ohio State’s little known on-campus gems.
