Quidditch Matters, Too

Sarah Costello
October 5
Filed under Opinion & Editorials

The New Haven Quidditch Team has been mistreated for too long. For several years, they have always been treated as second class citizens to other clubs, simply because they are not considered a true sports team despite clearly playing a sport. The school's officials should be mindful of the New Haven Kni...

99 Problems of A College Student

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

Disclaimer: I’m not literally listing 99 problems I have as a student I don’t even think I have that many but here are the important ones. Doing Work for A Gen-Ed/Elective Class I have to be honest. I think it’s annoying how American colleges forces students to take classes that are not a...

Keeping Away From the Kardashians

Keeping Away From the Kardashians

I absolutely cannot stand Kim Kardashian. While I’m all for wearing what you want and being a strong feminine icon, Kim is not an icon at all. She’s just flat out trashy and she really does not deserve her fame in the slightest. My biggest issue with her is that she dresses the way she does (...

The Pass/Fail Professor

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

We’ve all had that one professor (and if you haven’t you will soon). You know that professor, he either made your blood boil or he was your favorite, for only one reason. The pass/fail professor.   There are two different types of pass/fail professors. One that allows students to sleep in class, ...

Why Do Racism and Sexism Still Exist?

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

All persons shall be created equal is a philosophy that most people believe in but this philosophy, as logical as it is, didn’t mean as much to other people. Society has changed its views on everyone whether it is ethnicity, gender, or religion. Granted, there are some things that you cannot change b...

What Happened to Effort?

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

I define myself as a problem solver. Identify the issue. Find a solution. Solve. Thinking occasionally required. If I don’t know what to do, I identify what I know, find out what I can do, try a few things and figure out a solution. This is problem solving, thinking on one’s feet. I’ve noti...

Stop Being Mean

On a cloudless morning, I ventured into Bartels with a rainbow umbrella open and covering my head. Sat at a booth in Jazzman's with a friend for a while. Went downstairs and got breakfast. Ate breakfast with a friend, umbrella open on the table. Used my receipt and got tea, umbrella overhead. Usin...

Not Reading Doesn’t Make You Any Less Smart (So Long as You Netflix Responsibly)

Samantha Eldridge

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

I am an English major, so the entirety of my college experience has essentially revolved around books, and if we’re being honest, a lot of my life in general has revolved around reading as well. My parents used to get mad at me when I would come home from the library with more that five or six book...

Charger Poll

Filed under Opinion & Editorials, University of New Haven

So, Chargers, apparently, you’re not so thrilled about the iPhone 7. The majority of you voted against ever consuming the product! Hmm… Time will tell. I’m willing to bet that we will all upgrade to the iPhone 7, eventually. When we have no choice, of course. Because, you know, your iPhone stops wor...

Enough with Harambe

The Charger Bulletin
September 14
Filed under Opinion & Editorials

A few short months ago, in May 2016, an event occurred that nobody knew would turn into the meme that it is today. That meme is, of course, about Harambe, the gorilla killed in a Cincinnati zoo. This meme has been taking over the internet, making it so that everywhere you turn there’s something re...

A Walk Through the Forest

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

Last year’s Chariot Yearbook theme was Rooted in Tradition. As it turns out, the walk to Forest Hills is also well rooted. The walk to Forest is not a particularly lengthy one; if you walk along the Westside Hall parking lot away from main campus, turn left at the T-intersection, head towards the...

Travel to Trinidad and Tobago

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

Imagine lying in a hammock on the beach, under a pair of palm trees, the warm wind gently rocking you back and forth. Listen to the crash of the waves as they break on the shore and then the pause as they roll swiftly back to sea. This is what you will find on the islands of Trinidad and Tobago. On a v...
