To the Class of 2023, welcome to Seton Hall!

Welcome, incoming Pirates! If you’re reading this, it means you’ve made it to Pirate Adventure – the first step in your Seton Hall journey.

As you enter college, remember to treat yourself well

Finding yourself in college involves a lot more than just trying any and everything. Finding yourself is about struggling, and failing and moving forward despite it all. The Voice claims that there is a way “to be both enthusiastic and wary at the same time.” That fine line between those two types of self is called self-care. No, this doesn’t mean face masks and meditation; this means self-care in an emotional sense. This means...

Tentative Letter for Dr. Capra

It’s been a tumultuous few weeks for the College of Arts and Sciences.  In fact, it’s been a tumultuous few years.  But still, deciding four years ago to major in Classical Studies has been the best decision of my life.  I grew academically and personally under the intellectually demanding but endlessly supportive faculty of the Classical Studies program. I was privileged to be challenged by the demands of the...

Meet The Setonian’s 2019-2020 editorial board

The time has come, Pirates! This is officially the last issue of The Setonian for the academic year, and the current editorial board cannot thank you enough for being the best readership there is and making the news happen. As we said in last week’s Voice, in addition to reflecting on our year there would be no paper without you and this is why we want to keep the line of communication as open with you as possible. In that spirit,...

There’s nothing wrong with attending community college

The two-year, “community college” stigma needs to end. The thoughts and opinions of two-year colleges in the past does not pertain to the current benefits attending community college has today. No, going to community college does not mean you are behind the rest of your class. No, going to community college does not mean you are any less qualified to go to a four-year. No, going to community college does not mean you will be stuck and...

Disabled students should study abroad

When I was getting ready to start my senior year at SHU, all I knew was I wanted to make it the best year ever. I was thinking about what I hadn’t done yet in college and the one thing that took over my thinking was study abroad. I had never left America, and it was at the top of my bucket list. Italy was always the dream and when I heard a Catholic Studies course was going there during spring break I thought it was the perfect...

Remember to reflect and finish the year out strong

We’re in the home stretch now, Pirates! It’s officially the week after Easter break, and we all know what that means: sunny skies, lounging on the Green and everyone’s favorite: finals. File Photo We at The Setonian think that it can be universally agreed upon that finals during spring semesters are so, so much worse than finals during fall semesters. After all, it’s beautiful out, and the last thing any of us want to be doing is...

I hope to pay it forward when I graduate

Some memories are clearer than others, this one is crystal. I remember walking from Aquinas Hall to the University Center on a Wednesday night in April 2016. I didn’t know then, but the next half hour would change my life. I remember being greeted by Anthony DePalma, the professional-in-residence who told me to visit during production of The Setonian following his News Literacy class. “James Justice” Photo courtesy James Justice...

Dear administration, keep the Career Center where it is

Hello Seton Hall administration! It’s come to the attention of The Setonian that you are planning to change the location of the Career Center and relocate the Walsh Gallery and Seton Hall’s archives to 525 South Orange Avenue. In response to these plans, the Faculty Senate passed a motion opposing the plans for these renovations. The proposal, they believe “is out of line with the University’s Catholic and liberal arts missions, which...

I found myself through studying journalism

Like some other college students, I will be ending my collegiate career in a different place than where I started it. Towards the end of my first year as a nursing major at Seton Hall University, I realized that while I respect the profession, I could not find joy in doing that work for the rest of my life. Kiera Alexander/Asst. Photography Editor I then realized that I spent so much time in high school listening to what other people...

In college, remember to trust your gut

When I was a junior in high school, I figured out exactly what I was going to do for the rest of my life. I would attend Seton Hall University for its Speech Pathology 4+2 Program, graduate with three degrees in speech pathology, elementary and special education and English, and I would become a speech language pathologist. I would always have a job, I would save the self-esteem and speech of thousands of children, and I would write...
