Positives

+ Voting for the 2015-2016 USGA President, Treasurer and Senators ended today. Congrats to to all the candidates on successful campaigning.
+ Sodexo and USGA worked together to get the students a trial-run period of free to-go containers during dinner and lunch time, meaning students who usually have class during dinner time were actually able to eat this week.

Negatives

– “Should I stay or should I go?” – The snow

– For those of you who are still in limbo, stay strong through housing selection.
The Battery Charge

For those who celebrate Easter or Passover and are able to make it home, enjoy your time with family and friends. Otherwise, take this weekend to relax and enjoy the (hopefully) warmer weather.

Positives 

+ Up ‘Til Dawn was a huge success, as students raised more than $87,000 for St. Jude Research Hospital and surpassed LSU as the top third fundraising university in the country.

+ The University held a make-up day for classes on Thursday in an effort for both students and teachers to catch up after so many snow days.

Negatives

– “That’s cute,” said Mother Nature, as she proceeded to dump another six inches of snow on us and give us yet another delay Monday morning.

– Was anybody else aware that it’s almost midterms? Anybody? Bueller?

The Battery Charge

If you’re not counting down the days until Spring Break, then you’re lying to yourself, unless you’ve just checked out already. But, in case you’re curious, it’s ten days, unless you have no Friday classes (in which case you suck). If you haven’t booked a trip to somewhere warm, then I’d suggest getting on that ASAP, because we all know there’s only going to be more snow on the ground when we get back.

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

+ While having class on a Monday was inevitable – we can’t have snow forever – at least we’re getting eased into it with a delay instead of just a full day.
+ UNH had a huge turnout for Accepted Students Day on Sunday, which just goes to prove that not even huge piles of snow can keep (potential) freshmen away.
Negatives

– In the words of Bill Lumbergh from Office Space, “If UNH could let us know whether or not we have class before 5:30 the morning of, that’d be great.”
– What could be better than a delay the Monday after the Grammy’s? A snow day the Monday after the Grammy’s. (Or just a snow day for the third Monday in a row. Is that too much to ask?)
The Battery Charge

Valentine’s Day is this Saturday (just in case you forgot), and whether you’re single or in a relationship, there’s plenty to do on campus. Check out the MIC show with Aaron West & The Roaring Twenties, Call It Arson, Everything Ever and The View From Up Here with your S/O or your friends. Embarrass your best friend in public by sending them a Sweetheart Serenade, courtesy of Fully Charged. Send everyone you know a Condom Gram so that you and your friends don’t end up graduating Magna Cum Children. The possibilities are endless.

Positive 

+ SCOPE kicked off the beginning of finals week by celebrating the last day of classes with a Relaxation Day in Jazzman’s, featuring food, massages and K-9 Nia.

+ Congratulations to all of the students who played in the Winter Concert on Saturday and got everybody in the holiday spirit!

Negative 

– As students begin to suffer through finals, expect the dining halls to be more crowded than usual this week, with people crying as they eat their feelings.

– The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was last night, so expect the gym to be a lot more crowded than usual as well.

The Battery Charge

As much as students may be wishing they were home by a nice, warm fire instead of suffering through finals, just remember that this semester will be over in less than a week and delicious home-cooked food is your incentive to push through.

Positives 

+ If you need a brief and festive distraction from your life as it unravels in the face of the end of the semester, feel free to appreciate the Christmas decorations that have popped up around campus.

+ Hope you grabbed some great deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday! Now if only UNH could give us some Black Friday deals on our tuition. Let’s say… 100 percent off?

Negatives

– With the luxury of clean laundry, homemade food and sleeping in our own beds comes the all-too-familiar challenge of not having the strength to finish up this semester.

– The only thing less stable than everyone’s mental capacities as we approach finals week is the weather. I don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling 22 degree weather one day and 60 degree weather the next.

The Battery Charge

Thanksgiving Break definitely gave us a taste of the winter break that’s just around the corner, in addition to making us super thankful that we only have two weeks left. Seriously, break cannot come fast enough.

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:
+ Aaron Carter spread the word about his new music in a radio interview with WNHU 88.7 staff on Thursday. Based on his rapport with the UNH students (particularly the female ones) at the subsequent meet and greet, he seems to have bounced back from his unrequited love for Hilary Duff.

+ Phi Sigma Sigma scored with their first event of the semester, Phi, Set, Spike, by raising close to $2,500 for the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, which supports school and college readiness.

Negatives:
– Registration started this week, and counseling services will be available in the Counseling Center from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.

– The Education program here at UNH runs the risk of being discontinued, leaving hundreds of students in the lurch. Use your voice and sign the petition on Change.org!

The Battery Charge:
Thanksgiving Break is two weeks away, but after you gorge yourself on Gammy’s homemade stuffing, you’ll find yourself drowning in finals rather than gravy.

The Charger Battery

Positives:

+ Homecoming was a huge success, as the Chargers destroyed Merrimac 42-14, Sammy Adams destroyed the University’s speaker systems, and UNH students destroyed their livers.

+ Not to fear, party animals, Halloween is this Friday, meaning that the Homecoming party will live on for another weekend.

Negatives:

– A family in West Haven has been quarantined in their home after returning to the U.S. from a trip to Liberia during the Ebola scare, which means that Health Services will be more crowded than ever with hypochondriacs convinced that they’re showing symptoms.

– As fun as Homecoming weekend was, the recovery period following this weekend will not nearly be as enjoyable, especially with strep going around.

The Battery Charge:

We’ve sprinted our way through Homecoming weekend and we’re heading towards the finish line for this semester. Registration is already next month, so be sure to meet with your advisors!
