Time to say farewell

Looking back on the year that was

By TNH Editorial Staff

As students begin to pack up their rooms and prepare to return to their homes away from UNH, it is hard to believe that this year is already coming to a close. In this issue, we look back on the year that was and the various events and happenings that took place between September and May.  

We came together to rally behind the football team as it went deeper into the playoffs than it ever has before. We reached out to each other for support after the tragic loss of our fellow Wildcat Jonathan Zygmont in September and academic services assistant in the Communication department, Bonnie Hodgdon. It truly has been a year of highs and lows, but we have stuck together through it all.

We at The New Hampshire wanted to provide you, the reader, with a brief summary of the key events that took place this year (you can see this on Page 12). Remember all the way back in September when Dan Innis resigned from being Dean of the Paul College to start his campaign for Congress? Or how about when Kendrick Lamar took the campus over with his performance at the Whittemore Center in October? 

Skip ahead to January when former Wildcat Alex Preston earned his invite to American Idols' Hollywood Week and Cameron Lyle was honored with the NCAA Award of Valor. We certainly have a lot to be proud of.

And now it is time to look ahead to next year. What can we accomplish in 2014-15? So far, UNH Dining has provided Philbrook with an allergy free station and has commited to the Slow Fish Principles. The Black Student Union is committed to diversify UNH with Black Family Weekend and make it more comfortable for people of color. Cowell stadium is getting a face lift along with new student-athlete study facility. New Provost, Lisa MacFarlane, is working with President Huddleston to make academics stronger.

Yes, we're saying goodbye for another year as we welcome the green grass of spring and sunshine in place of snow. Many of us will be resting from our studies during the summer, binge watching television and catching up on sleep. But when we return, we have another fast-paced academic year to greet before it slips away; we have the challenge of new hellos and old goodbyes; and we embrace the unknown and the change that the future always promises.
