A Student’s Farewell to College Life

Filed under Opinion & Editorials

The day has come that I never thought would come soon enough: graduation. As Tony Stark said in “Endgame,” “part of the journey is the end,” and I have had quite the journey in only the four years. One of my first memories was feeling excited and terrified about starting a new chapter of my life. I c...

In my introduction column I wrote a lifetime ago back in August, I said that anyone could be a journalist. I still mean that, a year later. This year, I’ve seen non-journalism majors excel in their jobs, to pursue the truth without fear or favor, to be journalists. The Charger Bulletin has an incre...

It’s hard to believe four years have flown by so quickly. Four years ago to the day I’m writing this, I paid my deposit to attend the University of New Haven. Now, I’m just weeks away from graduation and the beginning of the rest of my life. Starting college felt a little bit like jumping off the deep end...

It is towards the end of the year, which means that finals are coming up pretty soon. I noticed that teachers give most of their assignments right before finals. School is already stressful enough, but the pressure is added when six assignments are being assigned for one class when a student has other ...

As many of you know, April is Autism Awareness/Acceptance Month. Unfortunately, it's also a frustrating time of the year for me as someone with autism because it’s the month I see many people and groups, including RSOs on this campus, make the mistake of promoting and donating to Autism Speaks. I wa...

The past few years have been terrifying. Punctuated with tearful calls from friends and family informing me of more hate-fueled acts, and tweets from our President filled with the same ignorant, hate filled rhetoric. So, when on March 15, 2019, I learned about the Christchurch shooting, I was not surprised. ...

The First Amendment guarantees every person the freedom to express him or herself, his or her values, and to gather peacefully. Protests, assemblies and speech are facets of American life that many of us cannot imagine living without. But, the second someone with opposing views from us tries to use that...

Instead of spending my spring break relaxing on a beach with a drink in my hand, I spent it going on multiple job interviews. Graduation is only a month away, and seniors, like myself, are fearing that they will be unemployed after graduation. I thought I should stay ahead of the game and apply for jobs ...

Trump’s executive order to protect free speech on college campuses is simply restating the First Amendment of the Constitution. The only difference is that this order will not make a difference. The First Amendment already requires that colleges protect students’ freedom of speech, so issuing an exe...

Lately, I’ve realized that 2019 is a year of great endings and new beginnings. As a last semester senior, I am one month away from walking the stage and finishing my undergrad chapter at the University of New Haven. However, if you are a nerd enthusiast like myself, you are probably more excited a...

Who are the first people you remember meeting when you first came to the University of New Haven? It was probably the SOAR  orientation staff. Almost every student goes to SOAR before attending the university and participates in Charge-In and Welcome Week at the beginning of the school year. After be...

There is a way to combat the opioid epidemic. Researchers in Minneapolis, Minnesota, have begun to solve their own opioid crisis simply by treating the epidemic as a disease, not an addiction, and have seen a significant decline between 2017 and 2018, according to Buzzfeed News. Connecticut is on the verge of trying to reduce or detain the opioid crisis in the...

I was all ready for a long week of doing nothing and catching up on sleep during spring break, but my plans were shattered when my teacher gave us a choice, either have the midterm before spring break, or after spring break. Some students, including myself, wanted the midterm before spring break. Th...

From the moment I came out in middle school, it seems as though my entire being has been boiled down to one simple fact: I am bisexual.   “Wow, you have so many choices!” “You could have sex with anyone you want.” “You must be into some crazy stuff [insert sexual wink].” &...

Last year, I noticed that many people began uploading pictures with the words “Victory Royale” on their Snapchat stories, a phrase synonymous with the video game “Fortnite.” “Fortnite” was released in the fall of 2017 as a free to play, battle royale style game. It was around this time t...
