‘Humans of New York’ photographer pauses others’ stories to share his own

The popular Humans of New York photographer has been a storyteller from his early days. When he attended the University of Georgia, he was a history major, studying the stories of dead individuals. He said he loves reading biographies because they are the rawest form of history. Last week, on Feb. 18, SHU Speaks brought Brandon Stanton to Seton Hall, where he pressed the pause button on telling other people’s stories and told his own....

College often leaves students hoping and praying that their degree will help them get a job after graduation. But as graduation looms closer, sometimes students can feel unprepared for what employers are really asking for. When I walked into my Promotional Writing class this semester, my professor, Dr....

Gender Equality club fights for inclusion

  Feminist. Man hater. Abrasive. Harsh. Rough around the edges. Overbearing. When people think of feminism, these are unfortunately the terms that come to mind, for some. Yes, we’ve written about feminism before, and previous opinion articles have discussed what a modern feminist looks like and what the term means and promotes. Specifically, on the SHU campus, I heard that the feminist club, Women for Women, would be spearheaded...

The Pussycat Dolls pegged the stereotypical teenage dream in their song “When I Grow Up” which defined many college students’ childhood.

However, two Seton Hall University alums, were able to see themselves on the small screen in a 20/20 episode that aired on Oct. 2.

Affirmative action brings more diversity

When I was applying to colleges a few years ago, affirmative action was a popular topic that my guidance counselors were discussing. As a high school student, I remember thinking that I wouldn’t fill any quotas or help a university’s diversity rate, which I thought would negatively impact my application. However, Dr. Alyssa McCloud, the vice president of enrollment management, confirmed that Seton Hall University does not use...

‘Gatsby’ sparks racial debates

With the formidable eyes of T.J. Eckleburg, grand parties and a foggy, blinking green light, most college students can recognize the iconic pieces of the novel, “The Great Gatsby.” In every English class, students read books about characters who pose questions on society and Gatsby is no different. Dr. Joel Pace, an English professor, said to drink in this time in college because you’re really able to study these works of art that...

Mass media’s inhuman standards

The world used to be a different place without mass media, technology and scrutiny. As a member of our university’s newspaper media source and with aspirations to wear a beloved press badge in the future to star-studded events like the Oscars, I find it difficult to pursue a career that can sometimes promote unhealthy and inhuman standards. Clearly, through Photoshop altered images on tabloids, it’s wellknown that mass media’s...

SHU students bleed blue, show fall spirit

The days begin to wane, the nights close in and the trees change to a vibrant color as the crisp autumn air creeps in. Friends start apple picking on the weekends, ready to make homemade apple cider. The beginning of fall is marked with pumpkins and corn mazes. For some universities, getting into the fall spirit means going to football games, but for Seton Hall University students, it’s the atmosphere around campus. “Nature gets me...
