Land of the free, home of the semi-automatics

It’s sickening that we had to scroll through our news feeds after waking up on Monday morning and read about yet another horrific mass shooting. The awful the Las Vegas massacre, which was preceded by the Dallas sniper attack, the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting, the San Bernardino attack, the Aurora, Colorado massacre and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. These senseless acts of violence happened over the span of five years...

We need stricter gun control in the United States

Stephen Paddock was found with 23 guns in his Mandalay Bay hotel room after he shot and killed 59 people in Las Vegas on Sunday. An additional 19 guns were found in his Mesquite, Nev. home. Omar Mateen, whose name was on two federal watch lists for being a known ISIS supporter, easily purchased two handguns within a week before murdering 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The guns that were legally obtained by these men took...

Stop complaining if you’re not going to be part of the change

Students of Seton Hall: let’s have a little “us” time this week. Sound good? Great. As most of you may know, our University is currently searching for a new president. The Wit/Kiefer firm, which specializes in academic executive position searches, was hired by Seton Hall to aid with the search. The firm visited campus on Sept. 21 to hear what students want from their next president. One might expect this to be a popular forum for...

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter so that the coverage in The Setonian of the A&S Faculty’s vote of no confidence in Interim Provost Boroff can be more accurate than the article on September 14th may have led people to comprehend. Because the meeting was closed, it is understandable, but there were dissenting views in that meeting and the A&S faculty was far from unanimous. Similarly, Professors Goedert and Mirabella do not speak for...

Give us the commencement speaker we deserve

Hello Seton Hall administrators! How are you doing? With the school year back in full swing we know you must be extremely busy with meetings, paperwork and, of course, planning the Class of 2018’s commencement ceremony. Now, we know it’s a bit soon to be thinking of graduation, considering it’s only September, but we at The Setonian like to stay on top of things. We can see Seton Hall’s Commencement Committee is staying on top of...

Shelters rescuing hurricane- impacted animals are heroes

Among the organizations stepping in to help the areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are The American Red Cross, UNICEF and animal shelters around the country. Each of these organizations help in different ways and do impactful work and the generosity from animal shelters outside the south housing animals from shelters in Houston, Texas and Florida is just as important as the other recovery efforts. Both before and after...

We need to support fellow students, no matter their citizenship

At this point, most of us are aware that President Donald Trump called for the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA, which was initiated by former President Barack Obama in 2008, has given nearly 800,000 children who were brought into the country illegally the opportunity to attend college, apply for jobs, receive driver’s licenses and pay income taxes. If Congress fails to enact an alternate program...

We’re here to report the truth, and nothing but the truth

Welcome back Seton Hall! With the new year ahead of us, we would like to take the time to thank you for your readership. The Setonian would be nothing if it weren’t for the students, faculty and administration at SHU. That being said, we would also like to reiterate our mission here on campus. As a journalistic organization, The Setonian is dedicated to one thing and one thing only: the truth. Though we are ‘only’ a college media...

Letter: SHU’s helping hand

Dear Editor, When you open the Seton Hall University website, a large tab off to the right-center of the screen reads “Catholic Mission.” Under that tab a “values and tradition” page explains all the ways our campus provides a helping hand while embodying the Catholic message to assist. I’ve been on this campus for four years. I’ve met a lot of people who represent those values. But none have been better, or more helpful, than...

Letter: Failure to LEED

To the Editor, I read with great interest the recent article about the construction progress of the new Welcome Center at the Main Gate. (April 20, 2017). There was no mention, however, of it being built according to LEED standards, that is, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. These standards have been well-established for many years by the U.S. Green Building Council and provide for the designation of a building as...

The Voice: Thanks to the man behind the scenes of The Setonian

As school winds down, it is with great pride that we look back upon a very successful year. The Setonian’s editors truly feel our organization has made an impact on campus like never before. We’re not the only ones that think so, with administrators and faculty going out of their way all year long to commend our student journalists on a job well-done. However, there is one man who, outside of our newsroom, does not get the credit he...
