The Charger Battery


  Aw, shucks. Punxsutawney saw his shadow and we have six more weeks of winter–or do we? This weekend’s weather was absolutely gorgeous! I don’t think anyone expected to have such clear skies ameliorated by warm temperatures. Besides the melting snow causing mud, it was great to be able to walk outside in a light jacket rather than be cooped up in the dorms.

  Love is in the air, can’t you feel it? If you can feel it then you might need to make some reality adjustments. Anyways, happy Valentine’s Day to those who celebrate it and happy anti-Valentine’s Day to those who loathe it. By the way, anyone want to eat a pint of Ben and Jerry’s with me while watching sappy movies?

  President Kaplan made an appearance at the USGA meeting to touch base with students. It’s nice to know that our opinions are valued.

   Get ready to drain your bank account to pay your superfluous $250 room deposit fee. Oh and don’t think that it guarantees you housing; as displayed last year, you can be denied housing even if you pay it. Have fun! I’m sure all the seniors are happy to be done with that whole process.

  This has been complained about for years. Literally, years. I wrote it in my first year’s Battery. Zack Rosen, Assistant Editor of the Charger Bulletin, wrote an editorial on it a few years ago. I’ve since put it in my Battery several times. We deserve access to our mail on the weekend. Stop locking the mail room so early at night and make sure it’s unlocked on the weekends. It’s absolutely ridiculous that we cannot get in to check our mailboxes just because it’s a weekend or just because it’s past 9 at night. Important, time-essential things come in the mail and someone shouldn’t be denied access to them on the weekend.
