As I stand on a pillar on the edge of a 10-story parking garage downtown, I can’t help but equate the terrifying/exhilarating moment to the college experience. Ahead of you are boundless possibilities—a city full of opportunities ripe for the taking, but, unlike the carefree days of high school, there is no safety net to catch you if you fall on your ass (especially in my case). A day out with the OSU Parkour Club, one of the many student-inspired stories in this issue, is representative of the risk-taking existence of collegiate life.
Whether it be getting your first (or 10th) tattoo (pg. 30), experimenting with brain-boosting drugs to help that study session go a wee bit smoother (pg. 34), or making dick jokes to a crowd of 600 people (pg. 20), risks are what make life worth living. (That and Netflix binge watching…and cat cuddles.)
