New Year, Same Swipes (don’t waste that shit!)

I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that you shouldn’t get too comfortable because change is inevitable. In just a few years you’ll hopefully be an Ohio State graduate, and in just a few minutes you’ll be done reading this article. Crazy how that works, huh? The good news is that just as you can expect change, you can also prepare yourself for things that will stay the same time and time again. For example, having a handful of leftover swipes at the end of the week and scurrying from C-Store, to the Union, to Curl, to spend that free money. Luckily for you, we did some research on some of the best things to spend those extra swipes on every Sunday night.

Some underclassmen from the sixth floor of Nosker, some of our old student organizations, and various floors in Baker Hall West told us their favorite ways to use those extra meal swipes:

Cookie dough bites from the C-Store are my weakness.


The frozen Reese’s cups from the C-Store are a necessity.


I get tissues and gum because they don’t go bad.


Just stock up on Powerades for mixers lmao.


Fake senior here, but those blueberry yogurt covered pretzels were the BOMB. Also, bottles of iced coffee for when you’re running late to class.


I always get soy milk for the following week.


Huge family dinner at Sloopy’s!


I used to get a to- go from Scott and fill it with fruit and put it in Tupperware for the week. Or cookies. Depending on how my week was going.


As many bags of flaming hot Cheetos from the Union as I can fit in my backpack.
