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,
Richard J. Rotella
USGA President
Putting you in USGA!

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.

Best of luck this week and I wish nothing but the best.

Go Chargers!

Best regards,
Richard Rotella

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.

I would like to thank to all of those involved in the Welcome Week festivities as it was a great success!

Lastly, remember to continue the hard work in all of your classes and, even though it may be easier to put it off until later, try not to procrastinate.
Best regards,

My fellow Chargers,

First, I would like to welcome the new students to UNH and the returning students back to campus. My name is Richard Rotella, and I am your Undergraduate Student Government Association President.

USGA is a student run governing body, which allows you the opportunity to voice concerns regarding the university. As an undergraduate student, you are automatically a member of USGA. We encourage you to attend our meetings which occur every Friday in the Alumni Lounge (located in Bartels Campus Center) at 11:00 a.m. If you would like to learn more about USGA, there will be an Information Session this Friday, Aug 29, at 10:00 a.m. in the Alumni Lounge.

Please feel free to stop and say hello if you see me around campus. You can also contact me via e-mail at USGAPresident@newhaven.edu, by phone at 203-932-7300, or during my office hours. I wish you the best of luck this year at the University of New Haven.

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

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

As the weather begins to warm up, take some time and go for a walk or hang out with some friends in front of Bartels.

To organizations who are currently transitioning between executive boards: take time to pass along any information and documents to the new executive board. Also, teach the newer members lessons you learned from your time as an executive board member. Try to build your organization so that it can grow and last for years to come.

I read this poem about two years ago, and I believe that is worth sharing to all the new leaders on campus:

 

The Indispensable Man

 

Sometime when you’re feeling important;

Sometime when your ego ‘s in bloom;

Sometime when you take it for granted,

You’re the best qualified in the room:

Sometime when you feel that you’re going,

Would leave an unfillable hole,

Just follow these simple instructions,

And see how they humble your soul.

 

Take a bucket and fill it with water,

Put your hand in it up to the wrist,

Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining,

Is a measure of how much you’ll be missed.

You can splash all you wish when you enter,

You may stir up the water galore,

But stop, and you’ll find that in no time,

It looks quite the same as before.

 

The moral of this quaint example,

Is to do just the best that you can,

Be proud of yourself but remember,

There’s no indispensable man.

 

Warm Regards,

Zani Imetovski

USGA President

Let me take this moment to congratulate the President-elect Richard Rotella and the Treasurer-elect John Foti on winning the elections; they will begin their terms on July 1, 2014. I would also like to thank the student body for the record-breaking number of votes that were casted; your voice was heard.

As summer is fast approaching, take this time to enjoy the outside and our beautiful campus. Meet up with your friends in the quad or go for a nice walk around campus.

Last Saturday the 31st Annual Scholarship Ball took place, and I would personally like to thank all of the alumni who came back and donated to the various scholarship funds at the Ball. Those gifts go directly to the students most in need and help support them through college.

As always if you have any questions or concerns feel free to call 203-932-7300 and leave a message or email USGApresident@newhaven.edu

I would like to remind everyone to sign up for Last Man Standing. The applications are on USGA Chargerconnection page under forms. The events are April 21 to 25, and first place is awarded $1,000 dollars!

I would also like to thank everyone who voted, we had a record turn out! I would also send a special thank you to the candidates of the campaign. Win or lose your hard work was recognized and it raised the level of debate on this campus.

If you have any concerns around campus please email me at USGApresident@newhaven.edu.
