Chargers,

I would like to congratulate all of the contestants who participated in USGA’s yearly tradition of Last Man Standing. You all did a fantastic job and you showed a lot of talent.

As we inch closer to finals, your school work will begin to pile up and you are going to have to work hard to meet all the deadlines. Just remember that in the next couple of weeks, you must find creative ways of completing that work and will have to try to “fit ten pounds in a five pound bag.”

Since this is the last issue, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to serve as your student government President. This opportunity was both an honor and a privilege. Each of you helped me grow as a person and showed me the resilience of the human spirit.
As always send me an email with any question, comments or concerns to USGApresident@newhaven.edu. Good luck on finals and have a great summer.

With best wishes for a bright future,
Richard J. Rotella
USGA President

With the warmer weather finally upon us, I hope everyone is enjoying the spring season.

During April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month, I encourage you to attend all of the amazing programs that many organizations will be hosting this month, and remember it’s on all of us to end sexual assault! During your attendance at these events, hashtag #UNHitsonus and #SAAM to raise awareness for this important effort.

I would like to congratulate all of the Senators that were elected for next year, next year’s USGA Treasurer Annalisa Berardinelli, and a special congratulations to next year’s USGA President James Kielar.

If you ever need anything, my door is always open and I am just an email away.

Best regards,

I hope your week is going well, and hopefully the snow is over. There will be no USGA this week as University offices are closed on Friday. For those of you traveling home for the Easter Holiday, I wish you safe travels. I am glad to report that the to-go container trial is going well and we will have a further update to you in the coming weeks.

This past Sunday, the USGA had its first ever Dodgeball Tournament. I would like to thank everyone that attended. It was a lot of fun and a good way to relieve stress.

Voting ends on Wednesday and I want to wish all the candidates luck, and look forward to see who will win.

If you have any questions or issues do not hesitate to contact me, and my door is always open to you.

Best regards,
Richard Rotella

My fellow Chargers,

Welcome back, and I hope you had an amazing Spring Break! With the warmer days hopefully on the way, I look forward to spending time hanging out in the Quad. In the coming week, USGA Elections will be taking place so please check your emails and listen to the candidates. They will be the future leaders of USGA.

Beginning this week, the Marketplace will be offering to-go containers at no additional cost. This will be a trial period that began March 23and ending on April 4. To-go containers will be provided upon request during the breakfast and dinner hours, Monday through Friday. If you request a to-go container, the Sodexo employee will retain your receipt, and you will not be able to get more food. This change was made to assist students with difficult schedules and those with a need to eat on the go. We ask that you do not take a to-go container and eat in the Marketplace.

This was accomplished with the conjoined efforts of USGA and the management of Sodexo. Concluding this trial period, USGA and Sodexo will meet again to discuss the continuation of this program. We look forward to continuing our partnership and making every effort to improve student life here at UNH.

If you have any questions or need anything do not hesitate to contact me.

Welcome back!

Richard J. Rotella

I would like to wish you a safe and fun-filled spring break! With campaigning fully underway, I encourage you all to keep an eye on your email for lots of information about the candidates. We will also be hosting a series of debates, which I encourage you to attend. I would like to leave you with this quote:

“If you sometimes get discouraged, consider this fellow: He dropped out of grade school. Ran a country store. Went broke. Took 15 years to pay off his bills. Took a wife. Unhappy marriage. Ran for House. Lost twice. Ran for Senate. Lost twice. Delivered speech that became a classic. Audience indifferent. Attacked daily by the press and despised by half the country. Despite all this, imagine how many people all over the world have been inspired by this awkward, rumpled, brooding man who signed his name simply, A. Lincoln.”
Warmest regards,
Richard Rotella
USGA President

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.

With the snowfall continuing, I hope you all stay safe and I encourage you all to read your emails about snowfall removal and potential University closures.

I would like to thank Dr. Juline Mills and her Capstone two class for putting on a wonderful benefit dinner for End Hunger Connecticut.
