Senior Column: The Setonian started my journalism career

I have always loved writing, which is why it comes as no surprise that I decided to major in journalism. Part of the reason I wanted to come to Seton Hall University — besides it being my dream school and feeling like home — is that I wanted to write for The Setonian. Back then, I never would have expected that I would make so many friends through the paper and be elected Editor-in-Chief. I have learned a great deal through my time on...

Senior Column: The Setonian helped shape me

During my first few weeks as a freshman at Seton Hall, like many other students, I had no idea where I belonged. I only knew that I wanted to write. It was during that time that I joined The Setonian. As I write this and reflect on my time with the newspaper, I can hardly believe how being a part of it helped me grow as a person and as a journalist. I remember the first story I worked on about Aquinas residence hall director Joshua...

The Setonian’s goal is to remain objective

Objectivity is the backbone of modern journalism. It is the idea that as reporters it is your duty to present the facts – and only the facts – to your readers, and have them form their own opinions about the story. The idea of objectivity was first introduced in the early 20th century by Walter Lippman, a writer, reporter and political commentator. After the age of yellow journalism, in which exaggeration and sensationalism was used...

Letter to the Editor:

Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Stop blaming guns for the actions of criminals. All American can agree on at least one thing: A world with less violence is a good thing. Notice I did not say gun violence, domestic violence, or hate-crime based violence. All violence is an issue, and those who commit those acts should be punished. The nature of criminals is that they do not follow laws. Writing more restrictions into law...

Senior Column: Stress transformed my senior year

For as long as I can remember, college has always been difficult. Being a first generation college student is one of the most stressful situations I have ever been placed in. Learning to navigate college without familial assistance has been very difficult. I originally thought college was going to be a 24-hour party, but instead it was as if adulthood slapped me across the face. By my second semester, it dawned on me that nobody was...

Prepare for the storm, finals are coming

The days left in the semester are dwindling. Many students are ready for Winter break and getting some much needed rest and relaxation, but there is one thing standing in their way — finals. Finals are stressful and a big source of anxiety for students near the end of the semester. Between writing papers, completing projects and giving presentations, many are in a time crunch. At this point in the semester, many students are stressed....

Seton Hall may not really have the ‘Least Happy Students’

Earlier this year, the Princeton Review ranked Seton Hall No. 7 in the United States for having the “Least Happy Students.” The August ranking consisted of 20 schools. According to the Princeton Review website, the ranking is based on the results of a survey distributed to students. The results were determined by how strongly students agreed or disagreed with the statement, “I am happy at my school.” If I really hadn’t thought about...

Have your voice heard beyond the Midterms

Votes were cast in the midterm election on Nov. 6 and the results are in. The Republicans have been projected to keep control of the Senate while the Democrats will take control of the House of Representatives, CBS News projected on Nov. 7. There were a lot of close races across the U.S. In N.J., we had the highly-contested race for Senate between the two Bobs — Sen. Bob Menendez and Bob Hugin. Ultimately, Menendez won and was...

On Oct. 27, Interim Provost Dr. Karen Boroff sent out an email that canceled the...

We need stricter gun laws to stop gun violence
