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,
Richard Rotella
USGA President

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

I hope that everyone is enjoying the fall weather and is getting ready to for the Fall Break!

This past week I, along with other student leaders, attended the American Student Government Association National Summit in Washington, DC. At the Summit, we met many other student leaders and learned of many new ways to improve USGA. At the Summit, we also spoke one different ways to unite not only USGA but the other Student Governments in the area.

I wish you all safe travels to wherever you are spending your fall break. For some of us, it is a time to relax and step back and prepare for the rest of the semester. For others, it is a time to catch up and to strive for success!

Remember USGA Meetings are on Fridays at 11 a.m. in the Alumni Lounge! Come join us and get more involved!

Warmest regards,

Now that the semester is in full swing and Fall Break is just around the corner, don’t let yourself slip; keep working hard!

This week’s USGA meeting will be canceled; I, along with several other students, will be attending the ASGA National Conference in Washington, DC. While at the conference, we will be working with many schools throughout the country on improving our own USGA here at the University of New Haven!

With the It’s On Us Campaign in full swing, I encourage you all to take the pledge at ItsOnUs.org and help us bring an end to sexual assault. In the coming weeks many student leaders throughout the campus will be meeting to discuss the issue at hand and to talk about the resources offered at UNH. That being said, keep an eye out for information following the Roundtables, as well as more opportunities to get involved with this campaign!

Best of luck this week and Go Chargers!

This past Friday, President Obama and Vice President Biden announced the launch of the It’s On Us Campaign against sexual assault. Many organizations, celebrities, colleges and universities across the country partnered with this campaign. The University of New Haven is one of those schools! I would like to challenge you all to take the pledge and make a stance against sexual assault. You can take the pledge at ItsOnUs.org. Also make sure to check out the complete story on page one.

I hope you all enjoyed the Family Day festivities this weekend and spent quality time with your friends and family! Remember to start getting ready for Homecoming weekend—it is only 27 days away!

If anyone is interested in being more involved in USGA, please contact me or come to one of our meetings on Fridays at 11 a.m. in the Alumni Lounge! Enjoy this upcoming week and the beginning of the fall season.

With the thirteenth anniversary of Sept 11 attacks just the other day, take this time to remember all the things you cherish and hold dear. Think about the dreams you have and goals you wish to achieve and make them happen, not only for yourself but for those who did not have the opportunity to because of the events of Sept 11, 2001.

Thank you for attending the Remembrance Ceremony. It showed that we are a formidable force that no one can stop. If we are knocked down, we will always rebound and come back much harder.

The USGA had our first New Horizons Summit at the Orange Campus; for those of you that attended, thank you! We look forward to taking your feedback and making sure we address your concerns and make the necessary changes.

If you could not attend Monday’s Charging Forward Information Session, please visit http://www.newhaven.edu/ChargingForward/ for more information and check out the article on the front page.

Family Day is on Saturday, and I hope you all have a lot of fun and spend some quality time with your families. Please join me in cheering on the Charger Football team to victory against Assumption at Della Camera Stadium at 1 p.m. this Saturday.
I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors this week.
Warmest regards,
