The Charger Battery

by Kaitlin Mahar | October 29, 2014

Positives:

+ Homecoming was a huge success, as the Chargers destroyed Merrimac 42-14, Sammy Adams destroyed the University’s speaker systems, and UNH students destroyed their livers.

+ Not to fear, party animals, Halloween is this Friday, meaning that the Homecoming party will live on for another weekend.

Negatives:

– A family in West Haven has been quarantined in their home after returning to the U.S. from a trip to Liberia during the Ebola scare, which means that Health Services will be more crowded than ever with hypochondriacs convinced that they’re showing symptoms.

– As fun as Homecoming weekend was, the recovery period following this weekend will not nearly be as enjoyable, especially with strep going around.

The Battery Charge:

We’ve sprinted our way through Homecoming weekend and we’re heading towards the finish line for this semester. Registration is already next month, so be sure to meet with your advisors!

Positives:

+ UNH is installing solar panels in Celantano Hall in order to conserve energy, and they’ll save the University an estimated $20,000. That means students will save about $3 each—don’t spend it all in one place!

+ Fall break was a fun, much deserved mini-vacation.

Negatives:

-Given that knowing how to work a microwave wasn’t a requirement for getting into college, it’s safe to say that the West Haven fire department could find this school with their eyes closed.

-Fall break is over, and most of us won’t be heading back home until Thanksgiving, so we’re just going to have to stick it out until then.

The Battery Charge

It’s getting to be that time of year again where it’s ridiculously cold and staying in bed marathoning Gilmore Girls seems like a much better option than going to class. Try to stay strong, but remember that a mental health day (or two… or three) isn’t always a bad thing.

Positives

+ Many organizations on campus have taken the “It’s On Us” campaign pledge to raise awareness for sexual assault. Take the pledge on itsonus.org to show your support.
+Students got the chance to spend an eventful Family Day with their parents on Saturday; activities ranged from Stuff-A-Bear to comedian shows to trips downtown.

Negatives

-The skunk that likes to hang around the Forest Hills apartments was never and will never be welcomed, especially by the students who wake up to a stinky smelling room.
-The sprinklers between Bixler and Celantano Hall seem to be on constantly—even as it rains, which sure seems like a waste of water and a great way to create lots of mud.

The Battery Charge

Autumn is officially here, so now’s the time to apple and pumpkin pick, plan out your Halloween outfit and buy as many pumpkin-spice scented things while enjoying the crisp, fall air.

Positives

+ Students are scheduled to rejoice this week upon receiving their bursary refund checks.

+ Family Day is this Saturday, Sept 20. Be sure to enjoy some psychic readings, face painting and family zumba!

Negatives

-West Haven fire truck steps on UNH letters on Monday, Sept 8—doomed to not graduate.

- Stop parking at Shop Rite and McDonalds, our email accounts can’t take any more abuse.

Battery Charge

Congrats to the girls who got bids during sorority recruitment last week, and good luck to the guys rushing fraternities this week!

Positives

+ Jazzman’s decided to loudly and proudly expand its musical repertoire and play more than the same easy listening playlist on a loop.

+ The Hazell Nut Café opened this past week! They gave away a free gift to their first 50 customers and if you purchased a coffee, you even got a free pastry.

Negatives

- The easy listening playlist may have been replaced at Jazzman’s, but so has the music now plays so loudly easy studying for students has gone out the window too.
- Mother Nature clearly didn’t get the memo about the Chargers’ first football game, since fans were stuck in the stands sweating more than the football team on Saturday.

The Battery Charge

For the most part, everyone has worked out their schedules, and classes are officially in full swing. September is Self-Improvement Month, so you now have a good excuse to make some positive changes in your life, including some warmer clothes as fall starts to come around!

Positives

+ After coming back to campus and seeing all the changes, it was nice to finally have lucious grass in the quad. Tossing the football and frisbee or laying out between classes will be much more enjoyable from now on.

+ Hope everyone enjoyed their day off and got a chance to relax without having to go to class! I know it’s hard to stay focused while it’s so beautiful outside, so take advantage of days off and weekends, so that you can power through classes and homework!

Negatives

- While the Bethel Projects have gotten a facelift, all good things have their limits, and as result the parking lot has been removed. It seems like with one step taken forward, ten more are taken back.

- It may seem like things are piling on already, and the heat of the last days of summer don’t help the situation, but keep organized and it won’t seem like school is taking over your life.

The Battery Charge

Hope everyone was able to soak up the sun on the last few days of summer. Living near the beach can be an escape and a distraction, but now’s the time to dive head first into classes and get involved in clubs on campus!

Positives:

+ Summer is right around the corner! Remember to stay safe and enjoy these few months without school. Don’t spend it all wishing you were back at UNH, because that will come all too quickly.

+ Congrats to the cast of Spring Awakening for putting on such an emotion-laden and thought-provoking musical with maturity and grace. The set, lights, music, and acting combined to make quite a moving performance.

 

Negatives:

- The workload at the end of every semester. Although we know it is coming, it is rare to plan for it. We say we won’t procrastinate, but every semester eventually brings an all-nighter (or several).

- People on this campus are fiends when it comes to free food, it is always gone so quickly! When organizations advertise in huge print about food at an event, they might as well include “For the first five minutes only.”

 

The Battery Charge:

What an amazing Spring Weekend! From the comedian Loni Love, to the music-themed carnival and the Krewella concert, to the drive-in movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, this weekend couldn’t have been better. Thank you SCOPE for putting together such a fantastic few days!

Positives:

+ Good use was made of the German Club this past week with events. On Thursday, Marine Biology club had their annual Marine Carnival (complete with a mechanical shark), LAU had a rollerblading night with glowing lights and a DJ, and on Friday the Nerdlympics finale dance event was held.

+ CSA’s Fashion show never fails to impress. Congratulations to all students involved with this event, and of course amazing job to the models!

 

Negatives:

- When club members go to meetings, but don’t attend any of their clubs events, much less stop by to sign a point sheet; what is the point of being in a club if you don’t actively participate?

- Being the minority of students at UNH that still have 100+ dining dollars (or even 200+). Starting with 800 at the beginning of the semester may seem fine, but with few food options for certain diets, it becomes nearly impossible to get your money’s worth.

 

The Battery Charge:

Boredom was the last thing possible this weekend with trip after trip sponsored by various clubs. SCOPE sponsored a trip to see Cinderella on Broadway and a trip to Six Flags, while Marine Biology club had a whale-watching trip, Paintball Club had a trip to Skirmishland USA, and the Green Team had a trip to the New York Botanical Gardens.
