Opinion: Robots in the workplace pose a few problems

Seton Hall’s promising 90 percent employment rate for the Class of 2016 bodes well for future graduates, but it fails to consider the automation of a variety of industries. Robots taking jobs from people is a reality that is terrifying, especially for a student in the Class of 2019. Millennials like myself, who help pay for their own education, may no longer have the luxury of working the kind of jobs that machines can do better,...

The Voice: Presidents come and go, but it’s others who make Seton Hall

The Voice   On Wednesday, Seton Hall President A. Gabriel Esteban met with The Setonian to discuss his decision to take the same job at DePaul. It was announced on Feb. 16 that Esteban will become the 12th president of the nation’s largest Catholic school, as well as its first lay president. Since the announcement, the Seton Hall community has voiced mixed reactions to Esteban’s impending departure. On one side of the aisle,...

Opinion: Students must fight fake news with knowledge

On Sept. 30, a 23-year-old graduate of Davidson College named Cameron Harris published a story online about an electrical worker who found boxes of ballots pre-marked for Hillary Clinton. The story was false. Harris fed into readers’ beliefs that the election was going to be rigged. By deliberately trying to mislead, his article holds to be one of many that constitute fake news, a trend that has increased as of late. President Donald...

Letter: Boycotting Black History Month

Letter to the Editor To the Editor, I cannot in good conscience, nor will I, celebrate Black History Month. I am saddened by the fact that the recognition of the contributions of African-Americans (and multiple other ethnic groups) are reduced to a single month. The implicit statement that is made by such an assignment is that the rest of the year is reserved for the celebration of some other demographic, which has presumably added...

The Voice: Take time to relax in the middle of the semester

The Voice It’s the middle of February, the middle of the semester, which means tensions are running high for some. At this point in the school year we all have more than a few things to worry about. There’s grades, jobs and internships to focus on, which may push our social and personal lives to the back burner. Midterms are coming, so study up. If you have a job or internship now, that’s quite the commitment on top of being a...

An open letter to my pro-life father

Political discussion has become an unavoidable topic in my home since the election of President Donald J. Trump – especially since I am a liberal Democrat and my father a conservative Republican. This past Sunday’s Super Bowl celebration was no exception. Almost immediately after the Atlanta Falcons punted the football to begin the first quarter, I thought we had deftly avoided all political talk, but I was wrong. My mother’s friend...

The Voice: Graduating seniors deserve better from Seton Hall

The Voice On Tuesday, Feb. 7, Seton Hall sent out an email in which details for the 2017 commencement ceremony were finally released. It’s about time. With graduation just a few months away, seniors finally know what time they will be walking. They know that they will walk in the fieldhouse. They know that they will receive four tickets for loved ones to watch in-person. They know that they will get another three tickets for a Walsh...

No matter the cause, protesting as American as it gets

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” In today’s political climate, protests have become a staple in American life and culture. The shooting of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012 led to the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement. On Jan. 21, 2017, women all over the world joined together to support...

The Voice: Like everyone else, Muslims in search of welcoming

The Voice “I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” These are the first words the Seton Hall community saw on Tuesday when it opened a statement from University President Dr. A. Gabriel Esteban. It is a quote from the Bible, but those words could have just as easily come from Esteban himself, a native of the Philippines. Disregard context and those words apply to each and every one of us. Whether it be as a new student at Seton...

PETA’s definition of abuse goes too far

After a long tiresome day, I don’t always get home in the best of moods. That changes the moment I walk in my front door, though, as I see my cat, Audrey, and my dog, Finn. Suddenly the stress of my day leaves my mind. I am an animal lover, but more specifically, I am a dog and cat lover. I’m a pet lover. Upon hearing that the Ringling Bros. circus is planning to shut down after 146 years of business, my initial thought was the circus...
