Take advantage of your resources, take challenging courses

Suffering exists. I find comfort in this first noble truth of Buddhism because it explains the necessary struggle to continue to move forward and to succeed. In my time at Seton Hall, I chose to be tested. I chose a difficult path, one with “suffering” in order to find truth and to find myself. Taking a variety of classes that pushed me out of my comfort zone was my most important choice in college. I’ll come right out and say it: I...

Education doesn’t have to end at graduation

When I finished my last college application, I was overtaken with an immense feeling of relief that I was done with that process forever. I was certain that there were no more standardized tests, long personal statements or formal letters of recommendation in my future. Now I’m swimming in graduate school applications and realizing how limited my post-college view was just four short years ago. Not only have my personal interests...

Home away from home found in Greek life

When I was in 4th grade, I went to sleepaway camp for a week. It was my first time away from home for more than a day and everyone in my family wrote me letters daily to make sure I didn’t get homesick. I wrote home once, with only one sentence: “Mom and Dad, I’m having so much fun! Sam.” It wasn’t that I didn’t miss my family—I love them more than they could possibly know. It was simply that my parents had always encouraged me to be...

US needs symbol of solidarity in Paris

The recent terrorist attacks on French satirical newspaper “Charlie Hebdo” and the resulting anti-terrorism rally in Paris have left many questions over the protection of free speech and exactly how involved the U.S. should be. Many news outlets in the U.S. expressed outrage that no high ranking officials from the Obama administration were in attendance at an anti-terrorism rally in Paris on Jan. 11. “It seems like the logical thing...

You know you’re a SHU student when…

Every college and university offers a fundamentally similar four years of education. By the end of their four years, students will feel a sense of independence and responsibility. They will be living on their own and making important decisions firsthand because this newfound independence is a basic part of the American college experience. Despite this sameness of campus traits, many things set Seton Hall apart from the other 7000...

Combating the mid-college crisis, or at least trying

I remember the first time it really hit me. Sophomore year was almost officially over and I had one final left before completely immersing myself in the self-loathing process that is packing up my entire room after living on campus for another year. My mom called me and said something along the lines of “just think about it, you’re almost halfway done with college.” Bam. And so began my mid-college crisis. The term we so commonly...
