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...

It’s time to abolish the Electoral College

The Electoral College went into effect in 1789 for a few reasons. One was to create a buffer between the population and the election of the president of the United States. Another was to give smaller states more power to elect the president. The Founding Fathers were hesitant to give American citizens direct power to elect the president; they were afraid a tyrant could manipulate the public and rise to power, according to Alexander...

Seton Hall needs to work on their security

Safety should be a top priority, if not the highest priority for a college campus. With thousands of students in the area every day, the potential for disaster without the correct security is heightened. If we are unaware of who a certain person is coming through the gates at Seton Hall, we do not know the dangers they could bring with them. Kiera Alexander/Asst. Photography Editor Seton Hall emphasizes their security. Just not in the...

It’s not too late to go into journalism

In the current age, it is easy to write off journalism, and subsequently related majors such as public relations, communications, and many more, as useless. The world of journalism is undoubtedly changing, and there is no denying that fact. Print publications are becoming few and far between. Even where these publications are found, most times it is rarely read in hard copy. According to the Pew Research Center, as of 2017, 43 percent...

Taking charge starts at home, with us

The first step in bringing about change is through caring about things that don’t affect us directly. Photo via Flickr/Brian Imagawa Social injustices are so frequent, that they have become normalized in our minds, halting effective action taking. Time and proximity play a major role in the way we process and react to the different social injustices around the world and even the issues right in front of us. For example, according to...

Take care of your mental health first

It’s nearing midterm time, Pirates. You know what that means! All-nighters, countless deadlines, and sometimes a feeling like you’re not good enough. We at The Setonian know personally that the pressure to be the best and constantly striving to do better can takes its toll. With a shaky job market waiting to greet us after graduation and tens of thousands in student loans, the pressure to craft the perfect resume is heavier now more...
