Positives

+ Dave Coulier left the crowd simultaneously laughing and reliving their childhoods Friday night with his standup routine.

+ Preparation for finals has begun, and, in the case of those who already know that they’re going to fail their finals, preparation to kill off the remainder of your brain cells at the Campbell Crawl has also begun.

Negatives

– John Stamos did not make an appearance this
weekend.

– Despite what some students thought they saw, that was Richard Rotella, not John Stamos walking around this weekend. John Stamos would never wear those Margaritaville pants.

Battery Charge

The last week of classes is finally arrived, and we’re nearly free until school starts up again in the fall. Make good use of your reading day on Thursday, so that fun in the sun will be that much more rewarding. Congratulations to the graduating seniors, and good luck to all the underclassmen on your exams!

Positives 

+ Happy Arson Awareness Week from the Fire Science Club! Or, if you’re a freshman trying to microwave a poptart, just another week.

+ A moment of silence for all of the students who are about to destroy their livers during Spring Weekend. Be sure to post all photos of partying with Dave Coulier and Mr. Woodchuck. Cut. It. Out.

Negatives

– Students were excited about the Glowstick Party the Music Industry Club put on in the quad on Saturday. They were even more excited when it was over.

– After attending The Department of Economics’ Economically High on Marijuana event on Monday, stoners all over campus are demanding an apology for giving the event such a misleading name.

 

Battery Charge

It’s our penultimate week of classes, and I think we’re all looking forward to celebrating at Spring Weekend after such a long, crazy year. We’re not completely done yet though, so don’t check out too early – showing up drunk to class these last two weeks (if at all), is not recommended.

Positives

+ What’s better than watching people get hit with water balloons in the quad? Being able to pay to do it yourself. Angry Bros should be a weekly event.

+ This new (and apparently brief) surge of warm weather had students really enjoying themselves with outdoor activities. Even better, now we get to laugh everybody’s awkward sunburns.

Negatives

– Tickets to see the Spring Concert sold out after only one day. T-Pain would not approve.

– HGTV is launching a new reality show titled House Hunters: College Edition in honor of all of the students who are officially homeless next year.

The Battery Charge

Finals are less than a month away, so make sure you’re starting to prep! Feel free to schedule an appointment with the Center for Learning Resources (CLR). Yes, it’s a real place, and no, those emails about it aren’t just spam. See the fun infographic on the backpage for how to deal with your exam stress!

Positive

+ Congratulations to WNHU 88.7 on the grand opening of their new station!

+ Yeah, Jesus rose from the dead 1,982 years ago and all, but you know what’s even more miraculous? That tree on campus doesn’t just light up and move, IT MAKES NOISE.

 Negative

– You know what’s a great idea? Closing pretty much everything (except for classes of course) on campus for Easter. You know what’s an even better idea? Doing this the weekend before registration starts.

– If the registration period has you stressed out, just go to Health Services. You may not be able to do anything about the stress, but at least you’ll finally find out that you’re pregnant. Congratulations!

Battery Charge

Hope everybody enjoyed their Easter/Passover weekends! Even if you didn’t do anything to celebrate, hopefully you squeezed in some time to decompress before we come down to the end of the semester. Only four more weeks until finals!

Positives

+ Voting for the 2015-2016 USGA President, Treasurer and Senators ended today. Congrats to to all the candidates on successful campaigning.
+ Sodexo and USGA worked together to get the students a trial-run period of free to-go containers during dinner and lunch time, meaning students who usually have class during dinner time were actually able to eat this week.

Negatives

– “Should I stay or should I go?” – The snow

– For those of you who are still in limbo, stay strong through housing selection.
The Battery Charge

For those who celebrate Easter or Passover and are able to make it home, enjoy your time with family and friends. Otherwise, take this weekend to relax and enjoy the (hopefully) warmer weather.

+ If you want to see a play that has more drama than that episode of short-lived E! reality show Pretty Wild (don’t act like you don’t know the one), then check out the UNH Theater Department’s production of Moliere’s School for Wives, which runs Thursday-Sunday.

+ It snowed last Friday, which means it’s going to be nearly 60 degrees on Thursday, because that’s how the weather works now.

Negatives

– I’d say it feels good to be back, but I’m too cold to feel anything.

– With midterm grades coming in, I think the best way to describe our GPAs is through the wise words of scholar and overall genius Kesha: “It’s going down, I’m yelling timber.”

The Battery Charge

With the semester being half over, the ominous black cloud known as registration will be descending down upon us in two weeks. Be sure to meet up with your advisor so that you don’t become one of the next victims of The Registration Games.

Positives

+ The weather is really starting to warm up, meaning that by the time we get back from break, there will only be two feet of snow on the ground instead of three.

+ It’s finally (almost) here, every college student’s two favorite words: Spring Break.

Negatives

– The three least favorite words of every college student everywhere? Day Light Savings.

– Midterms. Need I say more?

The Battery Charge

Everybody is either drowning in exams and assignments or drowning in cough medicine and tissues, which can only mean that spring is almost here. Also, a special shout out to all of our fellow “broke” college students going somewhere warm for spring break – we don’t hate you, we’re just bitter.

Positives 

+ Up ‘Til Dawn was a huge success, as students raised more than $87,000 for St. Jude Research Hospital and surpassed LSU as the top third fundraising university in the country.

+ The University held a make-up day for classes on Thursday in an effort for both students and teachers to catch up after so many snow days.

Negatives

– “That’s cute,” said Mother Nature, as she proceeded to dump another six inches of snow on us and give us yet another delay Monday morning.

– Was anybody else aware that it’s almost midterms? Anybody? Bueller?

The Battery Charge

If you’re not counting down the days until Spring Break, then you’re lying to yourself, unless you’ve just checked out already. But, in case you’re curious, it’s ten days, unless you have no Friday classes (in which case you suck). If you haven’t booked a trip to somewhere warm, then I’d suggest getting on that ASAP, because we all know there’s only going to be more snow on the ground when we get back.

Positives 

+ We got a bit of a weather teaser this weekend with a high of 43 degrees on Sunday, which gave all of the “bros” wearing shorts and t-shirts a bit more of an excuse for their choice in clothing.

+ Now that grades are starting to come in, it’s understandable if some of you are starting to realize that you have the mental capacity of a plastic spoon. Make yourself feel better by watching people who are (pretending to be) as stupid, if not more so, than you at SCOPE’s showing of Dumb and Dumber To on Friday.

Negatives

– Unless being homeless is your new aesthetic, don’t forget to drop your past ten paychecks on your housing deposit, which is due this Friday.

– R.I.P. to the seagull eaten by the hawk. And R.I.P. to the hawk that’s probably going to die from eating the seagull.

The Battery Charge

Three weeks separate us from Spring Break, and this week just might be the hardest since we have a Monday-Wednesday class schedule for three days this week to make up for all the snow days. On another note, take J.K. Simmons’ advice from his acceptance speech at the Oscars Sunday night and call your parents. They’ve probably forgotten you exist at this point.

Positives:

+ There’s one benefit to the 1000 mph winds outside – students have witnessed the Tree Turbine sculpture spin at least twice!
+ Remember that ugly sweater your grandma knitted you that is really warm but makes you look like a feral cat with mange?  Well, consider this weather your incentive to wear it, and a great excuse to make Nana’s day.

 

Negatives:

- What is this “Monday” everybody keeps talking about? And since when did we have classes on it?
- The perpetual snow has been replaced with perpetual wind and freezing temperatures, making Alaska look like a tropical vacation spot and class look like a walk to the gallows.

 

Battery Charge:

Campus is finally starting to regain its bearings after a rocky start, with what will hopefully be our first full week of classes this week. Even though you wake up every morning wondering why you didn’t choose to go to school in California, just remember that Spring Break is only a month away, and with that should come warmer temperatures. Hopefully.
