International Students Come Together to Ease Transition

Nawaf Abdulaziz Alasaidan, Contributing Writer

December 17, 2019

When I first came to the University of New Haven, I thought it would be easy. However, it was hard because I couldn’t find anyone to help me with things like adjusting to classes or help even with something as simple as where to eat lunch. No one was there to help me get comfortable with new places....

Adulting is HARD.

Adulting is HARD.

Gianna Scire, Contributing Writer

December 17, 2019

I have been working since I was 16-years-old. I haven’t gone without a job since. At 16, I also started driving. At 17, I got my first credit card, and in June 2016, I turned 18. This is the age we all wait for, where we can officially say “I’m a legal adult,” but at 18, I still had no idea...

Books are Better than Movies

Hannah Providence, Contributing Writer

October 24, 2019

I will never forget the first book that made me cry. I was 12, and wide awake at two in the morning. The main character had just died a sacrificial death. Tears streamed down my cheeks, and I howled into my pillow.  The words were so real. Each sentence in that book had a purpose. Every letter cura...

That Time I Endured Hurricane María

Amanda M. Castro, Contributing Writer

September 11, 2019

    As a young girl growing up in Puerto Rico, I endured my fair share of hurricanes, but I never endured something of the caliber of the angry monster that took the small U.S. territory by storm. For the longest time, I have sat through many hurricanes, but the thought of my life – and my family’...

You Need to Stop Drinking Milk

Madeleine Orcales, Contributing Writer

September 11, 2019

Humans have been conditioned to believe that dairy milk is a cure-all elixir. In 1992, U. S. Department of Agriculture created the purposely generic food pyramid to convince the public to increase their dairy intake, while pushing the dairy industry and political lobbyists’ agendas forward under a th...

A Student's Farewell to College Life

Jeremy Bellman, Contributing Writer

May 7, 2019

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...

Everyone’s A Journalist, and We Need You

Everyone's A Journalist, and We Need You

Karina Krul, Editor-In-Chief

May 7, 2019

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...
