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...

The Voice: NJPF recognizes The Setonian’s dedication, teamwork

The Voice   I was recently reminded that hard work and success ought to be celebrated, so that’s exactly what I am going to do. Recently, The Setonian placed in seven categories in the New Jersey Press Foundation’s annual NJ College Newspaper Contest. Among the entries were two first-place finishes, three second-place finishes and two third place finishes. Four of the awards honored three individuals: Ashley Turner, Elizabeth...

Letter: SGA senator reacts

Letter to the Editor To the Editor, On Feb. 13, the Editorial Board of The Diplomatic Envoy published an opinion piece criticizing the SGA Diplomacy Senators’ decision to abstain from a bill on undocumented immigrants. The Diplomatic Envoy had every right to criticize their elected senators with regards to this bill brought before the SGA senate. For the sake of transparency, let me tell you why I am writing to you today. The two and...

It wasn’t supposed to end like this – not in the first round. Not again.

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...

The Voice: Unity proves most important as SHU changes graduation

The Voice It took some time, but Seton Hall fixed graduation. While the University cannot please everyone, the announcement that our 2017 Baccalaureate Commencement will now be held as a single ceremony at PNC Bank Arts Center instead of three ceremonies on campus seems to be a hit with most graduating seniors. Sure, not every part of the amphitheater is covered – rain or heat could cause trouble on May 15 – and the Holmdel, N.J....

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...
