Positives 

+ The UNH Theater Department’s rendition of The Rocky Horror Show did not disappoint all the students it had shivering in antici…

+ Congrats to the UNH Women’s Volleyball team for having a fantastic season and making the Charger Nation proud!

Negatives 

– Walks to class are getting more and more treacherous as the weather continues to go down a miserable, wintry spiral. Anybody else ready to take a hit out on Jack Frost?

– …pation.

The Battery Charge

Thanksgiving Break is next week, meaning that soon, you won’t have to relive your family’s looks of disappointment from last year when you explain what you’re doing in college and when you’re going to bring a nice girl/guy home; you’ll be able to make new memories to last until next year.

Positives:
+ Aaron Carter spread the word about his new music in a radio interview with WNHU 88.7 staff on Thursday. Based on his rapport with the UNH students (particularly the female ones) at the subsequent meet and greet, he seems to have bounced back from his unrequited love for Hilary Duff.

+ Phi Sigma Sigma scored with their first event of the semester, Phi, Set, Spike, by raising close to $2,500 for the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, which supports school and college readiness.

Negatives:
– Registration started this week, and counseling services will be available in the Counseling Center from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.

– The Education program here at UNH runs the risk of being discontinued, leaving hundreds of students in the lurch. Use your voice and sign the petition on Change.org!

The Battery Charge:
Thanksgiving Break is two weeks away, but after you gorge yourself on Gammy’s homemade stuffing, you’ll find yourself drowning in finals rather than gravy.

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!
