The Charger Battery

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!

Positives

+ 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!

Positives:

+ Summer is right around the corner! Remember to stay safe and enjoy these few months without school. Don’t spend it all wishing you were back at UNH, because that will come all too quickly.

+ Congrats to the cast of Spring Awakening for putting on such an emotion-laden and thought-provoking musical with maturity and grace. The set, lights, music, and acting combined to make quite a moving performance.

 

Negatives:

- The workload at the end of every semester. Although we know it is coming, it is rare to plan for it. We say we won’t procrastinate, but every semester eventually brings an all-nighter (or several).

- People on this campus are fiends when it comes to free food, it is always gone so quickly! When organizations advertise in huge print about food at an event, they might as well include “For the first five minutes only.”

 

The Battery Charge:

What an amazing Spring Weekend! From the comedian Loni Love, to the music-themed carnival and the Krewella concert, to the drive-in movie Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, this weekend couldn’t have been better. Thank you SCOPE for putting together such a fantastic few days!

Positives:

+ This year Disable the Label was an interactive day about disabilities that either receive no coverage or negative coverage by the media. From activity tables, to guest speakers, and performances, Delta Alpha Pi, the Office of Student Activities, SCOPE and Sigma Chi sponsored this informative day.

+ Two organizations on campus, Honors Student Council and the UNH Green Team, have been bringing two weeks of events to our campus, celebrating our Earth. Not just Earth Day, or Earth Week, but “Earth Weeks.” These organizations have been offering entertainment without wastefulness. From an acoustic show, to an international food festival, to an inflatable maze, it is clear that fun doesn’t rely solely on technology.

Negatives:

- Seeing recycling dumpsters filled to the brim may seem like a progressive site, but not when they are filled with plastic bags. UNH does NOT recycle plastic bags, so any recyclables thrown into the trash just end up in the landfill!

- Hearing students endlessly complain about Spring Weekend. Of course, no performer can please all 6,000 students on campus; everyone has different tastes. Two options remain: go and enjoy the weekend, maybe discover new music, or make your own plans that will please you.

The Battery Charge:

If senioritis, warm weather, nor the calendar date reminded seniors their undergraduate career is ending, then Charge Out sure did. The day was full of receiving caps, gowns, cords, stoles and finalizing graduation plans made graduation seem right around the corner.
