Jonathan Mitsiaris took home the grand prize at the Student Committee of Programing Events’ second annual UNH Idol on Oct. 1 in Bucknall Theater.

UNH Idol was part of SCOPE’s festivities for the University of New Haven’s music week.

Nearly 100 students attended to watch the 12 performing acts share their passion for singing with lighthearted competition. The song choices were of diverse genres, spanning from pop music to acoustic to vintage Frank Sinatra.

UNH Idol was one of the many activities pertaining to SCOPE’s music week, with other events every evening.

Students of all singing levels were encouraged to enter. Caleb Zenobia, a freshman, was excited to perform. His song choice was “All of Me” by John Legend, in which he also performed the piano part.

“It’s an all around good song to hear,” Zenobia said. He also said that he takes performances seriously, and finds performing fun. Last year, Zenobia auditioned for The Voice.

Tony Banano, freshman, also competed, but for utter enjoyment. Right on the spot, he decided to perform Ariana Grande’s hit “Problem” with another contestant, who he had just met less than an hour before performing.

The Master of Ceremonies was SCOPE’s Special Event Committee Head, Brianna-Marie Barron.

The three judges were Teri Tozzi, a member of the special activities committee for SCOPE, Will Ciccone, a member of SCOPE’s weekend committee, and Zach Grabko, president of the Music Industry Club.

The judges as well as the audience enjoyed the performances.

The audience played an integral part of the night by determining the winners. Members of the audience cheered the loudest for their favorite performance.

The winners were Mitsairis, who performed “Sing,” Keysha Morris, who nailed “Amazing Grace,” and Almas Ali, who sang “Stay.”

The prizes included a $100 Ticketmaster gift-card, a Yamaha keyboard, and a $50 FYE gift-card.

The Charger Battery

by Patricia Oprea | April 30, 2014

Positives:

+ Good use was made of the German Club this past week with events. On Thursday, Marine Biology club had their annual Marine Carnival (complete with a mechanical shark), LAU had a rollerblading night with glowing lights and a DJ, and on Friday the Nerdlympics finale dance event was held.

+ CSA’s Fashion show never fails to impress. Congratulations to all students involved with this event, and of course amazing job to the models!

 

Negatives:

- When club members go to meetings, but don’t attend any of their clubs events, much less stop by to sign a point sheet; what is the point of being in a club if you don’t actively participate?

- Being the minority of students at UNH that still have 100+ dining dollars (or even 200+). Starting with 800 at the beginning of the semester may seem fine, but with few food options for certain diets, it becomes nearly impossible to get your money’s worth.

 

The Battery Charge:

Boredom was the last thing possible this weekend with trip after trip sponsored by various clubs. SCOPE sponsored a trip to see Cinderella on Broadway and a trip to Six Flags, while Marine Biology club had a whale-watching trip, Paintball Club had a trip to Skirmishland USA, and the Green Team had a trip to the New York Botanical Gardens.

USGA in focus

by The Charger Bulletin | April 16, 2014

By: Dan Davies, USGA Senator

This week’s USGA Meeting took place at 10 a.m. in the German Club, where the following occurred:

+ The first annual “Passing the Torch” event took place last Friday at 3pm. This event was necessary for all clubs wishing to be re-recognized this upcoming fall.

+ USGA would like to remind everyone that Last Man Standing will be taking place from April 21st to the 25th.

+ USGA confirmed the appointment of Annalisa Berardinelli as the Editor-in-Chief,

and Gabriella Pericone as Assistant Editor of the Chariot Yearbook for 2014-2015.

+USGA also confirmed Derek Watson as President of SCOPE, as well as Amy Reidy and

Patricia McKernan as the Vice Presidents of SCOPE for the 2014- 2015 academic year.

+ The University of New Haven will be closed this Friday in observance of Good Friday,

so there will be no USGA Meeting. However, please note that classes will still be

taking place as scheduled.

 Any USGA related questions? Feel free to contact myself or any other USGA Senator!

A Sprint to the Party

by Brenda Bussulwa | October 23, 2013

On Friday, Oct. 18 in chilly weather as the day was ending, students gathered in their bathing suits at Kayo Field to participate in the second annual Swimsuit Sprint at the University of New Haven.

Bins were filled and almost full with the clothes they had been willing to strip off and donate to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Students huddled together shivering, half from the cold and half from excitement, as they anticipated the run that was to come.

Slowly they formed a line; people at the head holding flags and raising them high, before students took off in a circle around campus, which some people did not expect to be so long. They ran past the Beckerman Rec Center, Maxcy Hall, over the UNH letters in the quad, and past Soundview. Ringing through UNH was the sound of cheering as well as the sound of tired sighs, flip flops beating on the ground, and the sound of confusion as some realized it wasn’t a direct path to the Bixler/Botwinik Quad. In the end, they all sprinted to receive their free shirts and glow in the dark bracelets. They put on their shirts and waited for the concert that some say the best of the year.

Although only a few people had heard of Chris Webby and The White Panda, a lot of students came to listen, taking in the opportunity to attend a free concert. As the time grew nearer for the artists to start, students piled in, getting closer until everyone was surrounding each other competing for the best view, keeping warm and being cooled by the night breeze.

With the lights flashing in their eyes, the beat going, and hands waving in the air as their feet hit against the ground, Chris Webby appeared on the stage. He shared things that related him to his audience; his loss of a friend, his possession of a dream, and his past life in school. In the end, there may have been very few who came already knowing about him, but many people left wanting to know more. His act was entertaining, and perhaps a respectable point was the moment he forgot the first verse to one of his songs, but kept going, joking about it afterwards.

The audience in the quad throughout the entire time kept growing, as students, who had been seen dancing and listening from their rooms, came to join in, especially when White Panda came onto the stage. Out of both the acts, White Panda seem to have been the most known.

Coming out with panda masks on their faces, with their fists in the air. The artists had the crowd feeling ecstatic; feeling the music to the point that when it was all over, they wanted more.

“The concert has been the highlight of my UNH experience so far,” said freshman student Ryan Roberts as he prepared to head to a party with more music.

For some, it was their first time doing anything like this, and it would be something they will always remember, “I loved being close to the stage and feeling the beat in my chest. I was pumped, the lights and the atmosphere were euphoric. Definitely a night I will never forget,” said freshman Ashley Lopez.

People left with their ears ringing and arms sore, but it was all worth it. So to the joined efforts of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and SCOPE, as well as many others, people owe their thanks for a well spent Friday night.
