I hope this week is going well for you. Congratulations to our Greek organizations on their new members and good luck to those individuals who are joining.

I would like to welcome LaDarius Thompson to the University of New Haven as Associate Director of Student Activities. LaDarius’s first day was Monday so make sure to stop by and say hi to the newest member to the Student Activities family.

With the possibility of large winter storms continuing, please use caution when driving and walking. Also, make sure that you sign up for emergency alerts from campus police! For more information please visit http://www.newhaven.edu/student-life/police/emergency-procedures.

This week in USGA, we will be voting on Constitution and By-Law changes so make sure to attend!

If you are interested in running for next year’s USGA President, Treasurer or Senator, please submit the form found on Charger Connection by 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 28. If you are interested in being next year’s SCOPE President or Vice President, Charger Bulletin Editor or Assistant Editor, or Chariot Yearbook Editor or Assistant Editor please submit the form found on Charger Connection by 11:59 p.m. on March 13.

This week in USGA, we will be discussing potential By-Law changes, which will have a lasting effect on USGA. That being said, I encourage you all to attend. Our meetings are on Friday at 12:30 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge.

As the semester draws to a close, I would like to wish you all the best of luck on your finals and safe and Happy Holidays! It has been a great honor serving as USGA President this semester and I look forward to all that next semester has to offer. I would like to congratulate the Women’s Volleyball team for making it to the NCAA national quarterfinals. Regardless of the result, you have made us all proud to call ourselves Chargers.

For those of you who feel that you may be burning out or becoming exhausted, just keep moving forward: we are almost done and soon you will be on winter break. As Winston Churchill once said, “If you are going through hell, keep going.”

As always if you need any help, my door is always open or you can reach me by emailing USGApresident@newhaven.edu.

Happy Holidays,

I hope everyone has been enjoying the fall weather. As we begin our last full month of classes, it is important to take some time for yourself and relax so you don’t burn out; go out and watch a movie or hang out with friends. In the end, it is your health that is most important.

This past week was the Bartels Fellowship Lecture Series. Martha Poulter ’92 spoke to many students and faculty about her career and life experiences. I would like to thank Martha again, all those who attended, and the many people that made this wonderful event happen and continue to happen.

As I begin my fifth month in office I am reaching out to all of you for some input, both positive and negative. You can email me at USGApresident@newhaven.edu or call my office at (203) 932-7300. Look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest regards,

I hope that everyone enjoyed Charge-A-Palooza week last week. It was great to see everyone at Midnight Madness, Swimsuit Sprint and Homecoming. Many of these events have slowly become UNH traditions and an important part of our campus.

A special thank you goes to the countless alumni of UNH that attended Homecoming. Their attendance shows that you are not a Charger for just four years, but, instead, are a Charger for the rest of your life.

I would also like to thank EMS Club, Fire Science Club, American Criminal Justice Association, Sigma Chi and Up Til Dawn for participating in the first ever Homecoming Chariot Race; it was a great success. And congratulations to Sigma Chi for coming in first, followed closely by EMS Club in second, and Up Til Dawn in third.
Just as a reminder, USGA will be in the German Club this Friday, October 31 at 11 a.m. There will also be a President’s Roundtable before the meeting in the German Club at 9:45 a.m.

Warmest regards,
Richard J. Rotella
USGA President
