Try not to forget what this warm February weather entails

Feb. 21, five days after a snowstorm, the weather forecast is partly sunny with a high of 78 degrees. As cheerful as the atmosphere of the Seton Hall Green is when the weather is nice, with people lounging on blankets and playing Frisbee, the reason behind such mild weather calls for a great deal of concern. Our world is changing for the worst and the damage may be irreversible. Campus certainly is not the only place experiencing an...

Hey Seton Hall, where was our PirateAlert?

On Feb. 20, a fire erupted on the fourth floor of the parking deck, damaging two vehicles. Students who witnessed the smoke and flames billowing out of the structure were quick to spread the news on social media. Platforms like Twitter and Facebook were where many students discovered that there was a fire on campus. Some were alarmed after seeing photographs of the incident, worrying if their cars were affected by the fire. It would...

Don’t be mad at the Financial Aid Office, be mad at the DOE

It is no secret that students were concerned after Seton Hall’s Financial Aid Office announced a new attendance confirmation process for the 2018 spring semester. Gone are the days of students verifying their own attendance for their classes. That is now dependent on the professors, as is the distribution of students’ federal aid money. When it comes to financial aid, college students are going to react emotionally. It is...

We can’t pick and choose which men to denounce

On Feb. 13, the whole world watched as snowboarder Shaun White won his third ever gold medal at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Most Americans cheered the victory, supporting the athlete who captured another gold medal for the United States. One person most likely did not share that elation, however. Her name is Lena Zawaideh. On the surface, White seems like and all-around great guy. He has a charming personality and he’s an amazing...

Ice is just as – if not more than – dangerous as snow

Hello Seton Hall administrators! It’s been a while since we’ve last chatted. As we write to you on this Wednesday afternoon, we’d wish you a lovely day, but, as you probably already know, the weather permits us to say otherwise. By the time you read this editorial, the hellish mix of snow, rain and ice will have stopped falling from the sky. However, that doesn’t change the fact that it was a big mistake not canceling classes for the...

For the price we pay, our food should be better

Living on campus, many college students are limited to what they can eat, choosing from only the food in the dining hall or the few other options on campus, like Dunkin’ Donuts or the Pirate’s Cove. The food choices students have are not always the healthiest, either. In college cafeterias, many options are available, however, many choose the pizza, fries and cookies over the salad bar. Universities need to do a better job of...

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter in response to “Real Talk on Race at Seton Hall” event that occurred on campus last week. Disappointing. Historically these type of events rarely meet the expectations of those attending it, especially, the ardent supports of racial justice. That is not to say the event in itself a failure, I was surprised at the large amount of students and faculty in attendance. However, this time around the event failed to...

You probably shouldn’t expect to see a rise in ‘beautiful, clean coal’

President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday covered most of the topics one would have expected him to – immigration, infrastructure, the success of his corporate tax cuts and the looming danger of North Korea. One topic that caught some viewers by surprise, though, was the apparent “war on beautiful, clean coal.” For starters, “beautiful?” Really? That was the adjective he thought most fitting to describe coal? All...

Community service should be a graduation requirement

Maryland is the only state that requires students to perform community service to graduate high school. While many states allow students to perform community service in exchange for credits toward graduation or even a special endorsement on their diploma, as of 2018, only one state made it a requirement. Every state should mandate students to complete community service to improve or help their community in some way. Though voluntary...

Michigan State should be ashamed

On Jan. 24, Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing his patients. Nassar’s victims included Olympians such as Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney, but they are only a fraction of the women and girls who spoke against him. A total of 156 victims recounted their alleged abuse by Nassar. Not only had he been...

The seal superstition is contradictory to SHU’s mission

Seton Hall University is Catholic to its core. In 2017 – for the third consecutive year – the school that was the best university for Christmas celebration. Every year, rain or shine, students gather around the large 60-foot Norway Spruce tree on the Green and wait to see the rainbow of 43,000 lights brighten the spirit of a student body worn down by final exams. I could point to several other examples of the impact that faith has on...

After Nassar sentence, investigation needed at Michigan State

On Jan. 24, the infamous USA Gymnastics and Michigan State doctor Larry Nassar was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing 156 young athletes over the duration of his career. “I just signed your death warrant,” Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said as she handed down her decision. While Nassar’s conviction and sentencing were important in serving justice to his victims, there are many more adults that must be held...
