Alondra Lopez is a fifth-year communications major born and raised in California. She has been a part of Block O for the past two years. She loves Block O because its where she met her best friends who share the same amount of love for Ohio State Athletics and upholding Ohio States traditions. Alondra’s favorite Block O memory was last year during the Maryland football game. One of our members made a paper straw, since Maryland's mascot is a turtle. A couple of the band members asked to borrow it but didn't want to give it back, which resulted in us bickering back in fourth and laughing. People's facial expressions were hilarious when they realized what the straw meant.
