We’re all adults here

Can professors really kick us out of class? I mean, we pay them to teach us, and we pay a lot of money to be there. So when a professor threatens to kick you out of class for being on your phone or using your computer for the wrong reasons, can they really kick you out? I think there is a difference between being disrespectful to a professor or talki...

You're procrastinating on Facebook in order to put off the essay that's due tomorrow. Or maybe you're on Buzzfeed trying to make it through your seventy-five minute class from hell as your professor does her best impression of the teacher from the Peanuts cartoon. It doesn't matter how you got there,...

Eliminating “The Stare”

Courtney Brooks

October 1, 2014

Whether you are a fitness freak or just spend a few hours in the gym a week, if you are a female, chances are you’ve experienced “The Stare.” For those of you who are unfamiliar with The Stare, which I have taken the liberty upon myself to name, it is when a woman is working out in the gym and...

You don’t know Weezer?

Over the weekend, the iHeart Radio Music Festival was held in Las Vegas and streamed all over the world. I was so excited as I watched, from the comfort of my couch, artists take the stage, play a set of five songs, plugging iHeart Radio multiple times throughout, then on to the next musician. I loved seeing the up-close and personal shots of some of my...

What I’ve Learned from Working Retail

Jenn Harrington

September 17, 2014

You’ll hear anyone who has ever spent a substantial amount of time in the restaurant business or retail say, “Everyone should have this job at some point in their life.” It’s true. Working for a large clothing company for over two years has taught me several things that I can use in the “real-world.” ...

Who controls the music?

Katelyn Clark

September 10, 2014

The other day, I walked into Grill 155 to eat dinner with my friend, only to hear rap music blasting through the speakers at a volume unheard of at an eatery. I immediately wanted to turn and run. Not only did I have to yell my order to the cashier, but I could barely hold a conversation with my friend...

Don’t let social media ruin college

Caitlin Duncan

September 10, 2014

Set the scene: it’s Friday night. Your roommates and suitemates are all out. You’re alone, sitting on your bed with a big bag of chips, binge-watching Netflix. Between episodes of Orange is the New Black, you check Instagram. You see a picture of your roommate with a big group of people who look...

Nude pictures leaked

The Charger Bulletin

September 10, 2014

Jennifer Lawrence. McKayla Maroney. Kate Upton. Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Kirsten Dunst. These are just some of the names of the victims of the celebrity nude photo scandal that broke last week. That's right, I said victims. These women are victims of sexual violence, and, the last time I check...

One week without Instagram

Elissa Sanci

September 10, 2014

I spend so much time flipping between Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; I scroll through my feeds and once I get to a place where pictures or statuses or tweets begin to look familiar again, I refresh the page, hoping to find something new. It’s an addictive and slightly destructive habit. I waste my time, phone battery, ...

Freshmen or Freshmeat?

Caitlin Duncan

September 3, 2014

  The beginning of a school year brings lots of new things to the University of New Haven’s campus. This year we have a brand new residence hall, a new parking garage, new professors, new friends, and of course, a new freshman class. What baffles me is why some upperclassmen think it’s ...

A Plethora of Soulmates

September 3, 2014

According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. However, fearing their powers, Zeus split them into two separate beings, leaving them to spend the rest of their lives in search of each other. The red string of fate, an idea originating from Chinese legend, was tied around t...

Why I hate mushrooms

Gabby Nowicki

September 3, 2014

Picked from damp manure soil or the tops of fallen trees, these fleshy fungi will not be found in my diet. Shitake, wild, white, brown, raw or cooked mushrooms are not for me. When I begin to think of these toadstools, I imagine a dreary, dewy forest floor where the worms and maggots settle around.The...

Four Years Flies By

Samantha Mathewson

August 27, 2014

The saying “Time Flies” always sounds cliché when your parents or grandparents say it, once nagging but now insightful, words of wisdom.   However, when you are a college senior about to start your last year of school, your last cross country season, and your last first issue of The Ch...

No More Mr. Nice Guy

Kaitlin Mahar

August 27, 2014

It is no small secret that a common complaint from guys regarding the dating pool is that girls are never interested in “nice guys,” especially in comparison to “bad boys.” The “nice guys finish last” mentality has been prevalent for decades, but given the changes in dating over the last...

May 7, 2014

It’s the end of the year already? It’s hard to believe my sophomore year of college is coming to an end. Just yesterday it felt as though I was a freshman, writing my first article for The Charger Bulletin, and now, I’m getting ready to assume the position of Assistant Editor. I’m incredibly honored to be The Charger Bulletin’s Assistant Editor for the upcoming a...
