Senior Column: Knowing what it’s like to face the unknown

With four internships under my belt, a 3.6 GPA, and a senior student leadership position on campus, one would think that I have my future planned, right? Wrong. There’s less than one month until graduation and I still don’t have a job. All I keep hearing is “You’ll figure it out,” or “Everything will fall into place.” Maybe that’s true, but what if it’s not? Yes, I am probably putting too much pressure on myself, which isn’t a...

The Voice: Seeing right through Seton Hall’s lack of transparency

The Voice The issue of transparency is creating a lot of buzz in the country right now. Like almost everything else relevant to today’s news cycle, that is because of President Donald Trump. With new and needed tax reform on the table, the commander-in-chief still refuses to release his own tax returns. There is also the fresher matter of the White House’s decision to keep visitor logs locked away, a break from practice under...

The Voice: Dear Seton Hall: A commencement speaker follow-up

The Voice Dear Seton Hall, It’s been awhile. Back in November, we, The Setonian, wrote you, the University, a letter expressing seniors’ insistence on having a commencement speaker. Of course, now we know you had much bigger problems to deal with at the time. Boy, did May 15 look like it was going to be a mess, what, with multiple ceremonies, angry triplets and limited tickets among the many issues. But, after some outside influence,...

Column: Adjuncts deserve better compensation

    Over the past four years I’ve absolutely loved being part of the Seton Hall community. Looking back, I realize that my satisfaction stems from a combination of SHU’s atmosphere, finding lifelong friends, joining a top-notch student-run newspaper, and a selection of professors that have had meaningful impacts on me. As a student of the College of Communication and the Arts, many of my professors have been adjuncts. They...

Column: Choosing a major is choosing a journey

I grew up the fifth of seven children with a lot of loud cousins. I’ve never had a problem making my voice heard above the chaotic sounds of my beloved siblings but words don’t always translate into choices.  A lot of my family members and friends went to Seton Hall, majoring mostly in the sciences, graduated and moved on to bigger institutions and better incomes. I barely thought about my choice of college and followed along the path...

Column: How transferring to SHU brought me closer to my grandmother

“Everything happens for a reason,” is the generic response someone says to comfort another during a difficult time. Its purpose is to give hope. Hope is not always an easy thing to have, especially when someone you love becomes ill. Perspectives change. The things that were once so important no longer hold the same kind of value. When I decided that I wanted to transfer from the large university I attended directly after high school...

Column: Correcting my choice: My journey to Seton Hall

I didn’t know it then, but exactly four years ago I was in the midst of making the most important decision of my life as a high school senior: picking which college to attend. I had my pick of the litter, but in my mind I had already narrowed the pack down to two. I made the wrong choice. I think I knew even then that I was making the wrong choice when I came to my final decision, but at that point, there was no turning back. Seton...

Opinion: ‘We need a free press’

Most times when people ask me what my major is I’m met with an array of reactions about how journalists and the media are liars and cannot be trusted. While there are journalists and reporters who plagiarize, I believe the goal of most is to inform and educate the public while spreading the truth. That is the type of reporter I want to be and have prided myself on being at The Setonian.   Being a journalism major can be...
