We need to address the stigma about mental health

Upon graduating high school, many young adults are persuaded to enter a new realm of life at college. Looking at movies, brochures and word of mouth, many are excited to start the next chapter of their lives. Amidst all of the wonderful opportunities going to college presents, there seems to be a topic that the university does not address – the toll these changes take on students and their mental health.

Here’s why you should try to meet someone in person

We live in a world where the majority of us always wants to be connected with someone else through some sort of channel, whether it be through social media, text messaging or dating apps. However, I think there’s a lot more you can get out of meeting someone in-person for the first time as opposed to meeting him or her online. This may sound so old-school, and it might sound like something your parents would tell you, but I think a...

Student journalists are real journalists and should be respected

Late Monday night a three-alarm fire broke out in North Philadelphia, engulfing a four-story abandoned building in flames and forcing firefighters to evacuate the block. The order to leave subsequently displaced several Temple University students living in nearby buildings. This was when The Temple News, the school’s student-run newspaper and self-proclaimed “watchdog” of the University sprang into action. Despite the fact that they...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
