Maybe you should cut something out of your schedule

In the last decade, awareness about the importance of taking care of your mental health has gotten more attention than it ever has. Between dozens of articles, countless self-help books and even celebrities beginning to come out and discuss their own internal struggles, the stigma that surrounds mental health is slowly, but surely, diminishing.

Public officials have an obligation to speak with the press

Corrections: This editorial incorrectly conflated Booker’s 2020 campaign with his official U.S. Senate office. The Service Academy Day event that the reporter attended was hosted by Senator Booker’s official U.S. Senate office and was in no way affiliated with his 2020 campaign. Also, due to uncertainty in scheduling, Booker’s team did provide the reporter with an exclusive statement from Booker for The Setonian that answered the...

Ignoring politics is a privilege, not a personality trait

When I sit down to write The Voice every week, I try to not only think of a topic, but I also attempt to think of a way I can relate the topic to not only Seton Hall students, but also the entire SHU community. When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that the House of Representatives would launch a formal impeachment investigation against President Trump, I thought to myself, “Well, obviously The Voice has to be about this.”...

We should all question presidential candidates

The 2020 presidential election is still 14 months away, but with the constant political coverage, you’d think it was happening in just two months. Photo via Flickr Between the press coverage of Joe Biden’s alleged sexual misconduct allegations or Elizabeth Warren’s apparent “Native American” heritage, it’s no secret that 2020 is gearing up to be both a compelling and historical election. The latest investigation into a 2020 candidate...

What we can learn from the Newark water crisis

Our front page story this week discusses the water crisis that is currently affecting about 10% of homes in New Jersey’s largest city, Newark. According to CNN, Newark city officials don’t know when exactly the city’s drinking water started to become contaminated with lead, but city officials told the news source that it was “due to the releasing of lead from plumbing and lead service lines on private property between the street and...

Remember to reflect and finish the year out strong

We’re in the home stretch now, Pirates! It’s officially the week after Easter break, and we all know what that means: sunny skies, lounging on the Green and everyone’s favorite: finals. File Photo We at The Setonian think that it can be universally agreed upon that finals during spring semesters are so, so much worse than finals during fall semesters. After all, it’s beautiful out, and the last thing any of us want to be doing is...

Dear administration, keep the Career Center where it is

Hello Seton Hall administration! It’s come to the attention of The Setonian that you are planning to change the location of the Career Center and relocate the Walsh Gallery and Seton Hall’s archives to 525 South Orange Avenue. In response to these plans, the Faculty Senate passed a motion opposing the plans for these renovations. The proposal, they believe “is out of line with the University’s Catholic and liberal arts missions, which...

It’s time to abolish the Electoral College

The Electoral College went into effect in 1789 for a few reasons. One was to create a buffer between the population and the election of the president of the United States. Another was to give smaller states more power to elect the president. The Founding Fathers were hesitant to give American citizens direct power to elect the president; they were afraid a tyrant could manipulate the public and rise to power, according to Alexander...
