Positive

+ Congratulations to WNHU 88.7 on the grand opening of their new station!

+ Yeah, Jesus rose from the dead 1,982 years ago and all, but you know what’s even more miraculous? That tree on campus doesn’t just light up and move, IT MAKES NOISE.

 Negative

– You know what’s a great idea? Closing pretty much everything (except for classes of course) on campus for Easter. You know what’s an even better idea? Doing this the weekend before registration starts.

– If the registration period has you stressed out, just go to Health Services. You may not be able to do anything about the stress, but at least you’ll finally find out that you’re pregnant. Congratulations!

Battery Charge

Hope everybody enjoyed their Easter/Passover weekends! Even if you didn’t do anything to celebrate, hopefully you squeezed in some time to decompress before we come down to the end of the semester. Only four more weeks until finals!

+ If you want to see a play that has more drama than that episode of short-lived E! reality show Pretty Wild (don’t act like you don’t know the one), then check out the UNH Theater Department’s production of Moliere’s School for Wives, which runs Thursday-Sunday.

+ It snowed last Friday, which means it’s going to be nearly 60 degrees on Thursday, because that’s how the weather works now.

Negatives

– I’d say it feels good to be back, but I’m too cold to feel anything.

– With midterm grades coming in, I think the best way to describe our GPAs is through the wise words of scholar and overall genius Kesha: “It’s going down, I’m yelling timber.”

The Battery Charge

With the semester being half over, the ominous black cloud known as registration will be descending down upon us in two weeks. Be sure to meet up with your advisor so that you don’t become one of the next victims of The Registration Games.

Positives 

+ We got a bit of a weather teaser this weekend with a high of 43 degrees on Sunday, which gave all of the “bros” wearing shorts and t-shirts a bit more of an excuse for their choice in clothing.

+ Now that grades are starting to come in, it’s understandable if some of you are starting to realize that you have the mental capacity of a plastic spoon. Make yourself feel better by watching people who are (pretending to be) as stupid, if not more so, than you at SCOPE’s showing of Dumb and Dumber To on Friday.

Negatives

– Unless being homeless is your new aesthetic, don’t forget to drop your past ten paychecks on your housing deposit, which is due this Friday.

– R.I.P. to the seagull eaten by the hawk. And R.I.P. to the hawk that’s probably going to die from eating the seagull.

The Battery Charge

Three weeks separate us from Spring Break, and this week just might be the hardest since we have a Monday-Wednesday class schedule for three days this week to make up for all the snow days. On another note, take J.K. Simmons’ advice from his acceptance speech at the Oscars Sunday night and call your parents. They’ve probably forgotten you exist at this point.

Positives:

+ There’s one benefit to the 1000 mph winds outside – students have witnessed the Tree Turbine sculpture spin at least twice!
+ Remember that ugly sweater your grandma knitted you that is really warm but makes you look like a feral cat with mange?  Well, consider this weather your incentive to wear it, and a great excuse to make Nana’s day.

 

Negatives:

- What is this “Monday” everybody keeps talking about? And since when did we have classes on it?
- The perpetual snow has been replaced with perpetual wind and freezing temperatures, making Alaska look like a tropical vacation spot and class look like a walk to the gallows.

 

Battery Charge:

Campus is finally starting to regain its bearings after a rocky start, with what will hopefully be our first full week of classes this week. Even though you wake up every morning wondering why you didn’t choose to go to school in California, just remember that Spring Break is only a month away, and with that should come warmer temperatures. Hopefully.

Positives:

+ This marks the second week in a row that students have gotten a snow-induced long weekend!

+ Students’ requests that the University start a competitive shoveling team just might be taken seriously now.

Negatives:

- Given all of this snow students are starting to forget what nature looks like.

- The best examples we can find are that spinning tree and plastic rock over by Soundview.

Battery Charge:

Does anybody else remember what it’s like to have class? Me neither. I’m sure this will work wonders for everybody’s productivity. While I don’t think it’ll take a groundhog to predict that we’ll have (at least) six more weeks of winter, try not to get too comfortable, because this snow won’t last forever.

Positives 

+ The UNH Theater Department’s rendition of The Rocky Horror Show did not disappoint all the students it had shivering in antici…

+ Congrats to the UNH Women’s Volleyball team for having a fantastic season and making the Charger Nation proud!

Negatives 

– Walks to class are getting more and more treacherous as the weather continues to go down a miserable, wintry spiral. Anybody else ready to take a hit out on Jack Frost?

– …pation.

The Battery Charge

Thanksgiving Break is next week, meaning that soon, you won’t have to relive your family’s looks of disappointment from last year when you explain what you’re doing in college and when you’re going to bring a nice girl/guy home; you’ll be able to make new memories to last until next year.

Positives

+ Students are scheduled to rejoice this week upon receiving their bursary refund checks.

+ Family Day is this Saturday, Sept 20. Be sure to enjoy some psychic readings, face painting and family zumba!

Negatives

-West Haven fire truck steps on UNH letters on Monday, Sept 8—doomed to not graduate.

- Stop parking at Shop Rite and McDonalds, our email accounts can’t take any more abuse.

Battery Charge

Congrats to the girls who got bids during sorority recruitment last week, and good luck to the guys rushing fraternities this week!

+ Jazzman’s decided to loudly and proudly expand its musical repertoire and play more than the same easy listening playlist on a loop.

+ The Hazell Nut Café opened this past week! They gave away a free gift to their first 50 customers and if you purchased a coffee, you even got a free pastry.

Negatives

- The easy listening playlist may have been replaced at Jazzman’s, but so has the music now plays so loudly easy studying for students has gone out the window too.
- Mother Nature clearly didn’t get the memo about the Chargers’ first football game, since fans were stuck in the stands sweating more than the football team on Saturday.

The Battery Charge

For the most part, everyone has worked out their schedules, and classes are officially in full swing. September is Self-Improvement Month, so you now have a good excuse to make some positive changes in your life, including some warmer clothes as fall starts to come around!

Positives

+ After coming back to campus and seeing all the changes, it was nice to finally have lucious grass in the quad. Tossing the football and frisbee or laying out between classes will be much more enjoyable from now on.

+ Hope everyone enjoyed their day off and got a chance to relax without having to go to class! I know it’s hard to stay focused while it’s so beautiful outside, so take advantage of days off and weekends, so that you can power through classes and homework!

Negatives

- While the Bethel Projects have gotten a facelift, all good things have their limits, and as result the parking lot has been removed. It seems like with one step taken forward, ten more are taken back.

- It may seem like things are piling on already, and the heat of the last days of summer don’t help the situation, but keep organized and it won’t seem like school is taking over your life.

The Battery Charge

Hope everyone was able to soak up the sun on the last few days of summer. Living near the beach can be an escape and a distraction, but now’s the time to dive head first into classes and get involved in clubs on campus!
