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,
Richard J. Rotella

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,

As the week goes on, take a moment to catch your breath and enjoy your college experience. These moments only happen once so remember to enjoy them. I continue to encourage you all to get involved, go to as many events and games as you can, and show your Charger Pride!

For those of you interested in joining USGA, there are still vacant Senator seats, and applications can be found on Charger Connection.

This Saturday the USGA will be going to the Orange Campus for the first New Horizons Summit where we will spend the day learning and growing as a student government. I look forward to telling you the successfulness of this event in next week’s President’s Corner.

This Thursday marks the thirteenth anniversary of the attacks on Sep 11, 2001. USGA will be hosting the Annual 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony in the Maxcy Quad on Thursday, 9/11, at 12:15 p.m. Join us in unity as we honor the day and the lives that were lost.

As the semester continues, I encourage you all to continue getting involved and meeting new people. I also encourage you to go to so many of the amazing events that are on campus. This Saturday at 1 p.m. the UNH Charger Football Team will be taking on West Chester for our first home game, and I hope to see many of you there to cheer us to victory!

USGA will be hosting the first ever New Horizons Summit on Sept. 13 at the Orange Campus. If you would like to attend to learn about USGA and the potential changes within USGA, please contact me.

Dear Chargers,

Zani Imetovski, USGA President

Zani Imetovski, USGA President

The semester will soon come to a close and my term will officially come to an end on July 1. I am profoundly grateful and humbled to be given the opportunity by you to serve as your President; it will be an experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life.

This year would not be possible without my dedicated Executive Board members; Andrew Collins, Colby Thammavongsa, Isaak Kifle, Megan Scutti and Sean McFadden. They have worked hard and devoted countless hours to serving the student body and our clubs and organizations. I also thank Dean Johnson, Greg Overend, Shelissa Newball, Andrew Mayer and Colleen Kerrigan who have always supported myself and USGA.

At the end of the day it is important to remember that our time here at UNH is short and we should make the most of it. The most rewarding experience you can take from this campus is the friends you meet and the experiences you share together. When you finally leave UN, I hope you keep in mind to do good where you can, be kind and leave a positive impact on your community.

Warm regards,

Zani Imetovski

USGA President

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 showed a lot of talent.

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

As always, send me an email with any questions, comments or concerns to USGApresident@newhaven.edu.

Best Regards,

Zani Imetovski

USGA President
