Compromise on the smoking ban

Gabby Nowicki

April 30, 2014

Smoking is disgusting. I think it is one of the biggest turn offs and nothing good comes from it. This is just an opinion. Thousands of people still smoke whether they are aware of the harmful effects or not. On this campus alone, there are so many smokers. I’m shocked at how many of my friends smoke,...

A Letter to UNH, who is proposing a tobacco ban

The Charger Bulletin

April 30, 2014

By John Kelly, Contributing Writer Dear UNH, Wednesday morning, I woke up and began my normal morning routine. I climbed out of bed, dawned my bathrobe, made myself a cup of coffee and packed a lip. When I my read email, I noticed one of the thousands of emails UNH sent out regarded a potential ...

Better school security needed in light of recent tragedy

Kaitlin Mahar

April 30, 2014

The people in our country have many things that they believe should take precedence in the American legal system, whether it’s allowing gay couples to legally marry, providing healthcare to all U.S. citizens, or legalizing marijuana. While each of these issues should take some importance, there is...

Breasts: understanding a national taboo

Liana Teixeira

April 30, 2014

What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of breasts? A woman wearing a bikini on the beach? A porno clip? Maybe you picture a nude scene from a show like Game of Thrones. I bet in the five seconds it took you to create that mental image a woman breastfeeding didn’t even cross...

Hot Legs or a Hot Mess?

Liana Teixeira

September 11, 2013

They’re long, tan and gleaming in the sunlight—two practically perfect, cylindrical objects posed at a slanted angle. One may look in the background and spot a tropical paradise or a swimming pool. However, these are not the legs of a woman enjoying a relaxing day by the water, but rather two hotdogs...

Life Without a Plan(ner)

Samantha Mathewson

September 11, 2013

Plan. Execute. Succeed. Three words my uncle told me after I graduated from high school. I thought about these words the other day, and I realized while how simple, yet exact they really are. Right now I am in the planning phase of my life. While I do believe I am in the processes of executing a plan I made for myself after deciding what ...

Why Going to the Gym by Yourself is Actually Really Great

Elissa Sanci

September 4, 2013

    Two years ago, the worst thing I could have ever done was workout by myself. I was scared to make a fool of myself in front of people I didn’t know and I lacked motivation. I would rely on others to get my workout in, and if none of my friends were available, I wouldn’t workout that day.    N...

50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” Speech

Samantha Mathewson

September 4, 2013

Fifty years ago this week, Martin Luther King Jr. led the March on Washington to deliver his “I Have a Dream Speech” in order to shed light on the political and social challenges African Americans were facing at that time. While it may be seen as though we are moving closer towards King’s dream...

Rain is for Luck

Liana Teixeira

September 4, 2013

I’ll start off first by giving a big welcome back for all returning UNH students, and an even bigger welcome to the incoming class of 2017! It’s hard to believe almost four years ago I was in your exact shoes, unsure about the college world and how it would treat me. It’s also hard to believe I...

In Time

Samantha Mathewson

September 4, 2013

Well it’s that time of year again where all of us arrive back on campus and the new comers embark on their first, and maybe most exciting or scariest, adventure to date. One thing we all have in common, regardless of what year we are, is we all realize summer is over. The funny thing about life...

Graduation is Coming

Elizabeth Field

May 8, 2013

It’s May already? I’m graduating in two weeks? How did time pass by so fast, especially in these last few months? For some of you, these next few weeks mark the end of your college experience and for others just the beginning. Working with Liana on these last 26 issues has been an absolute pleasure....

Until Next Time

Liana Teixeira

May 8, 2013

Well, here it is…the last issue of the Charger Bulletin for the year. It’s an odd feeling to tell you the truth. No more editing, no more article lists, not spending my Sunday afternoons cooped up in the Office of Student Activities. Although this comes as a huge sigh of relief with finals approaching,...

Challenge Accepted

Samantha Mathewson

May 8, 2013

College is the time in your life when you finally get to make decisions for yourself, and one of the those decisions is what you plan on studying to later get a career in the field of your choice. When coming to the University of New Haven, I planned to study communications and photography so that...

Finally Over Stress

Nadine Northway

May 1, 2013

The stress of finals is brewing and everyone’s tension is rising. I know it is not just me because everyone seems to be getting out the claws lately when they get mildly annoyed. However, you cannot get mad at anyone in particular because everyone is freaking out about something. There is the stress...

Things I wish I Could Accomplish at UNH

Nadine Northway

May 1, 2013

Unfortunately for myself, I will not be attending the University of New Haven next year. With my time here, I wanted to bring forth some new challenges. I was thinking of ways we could improve our school. One thing I wanted to look into was the donation of excess food to homeless shelters. When we...
