DeVos’ decision is a slap in the face for sexual assault survivors

The United States Department of Education announced on Sept. 22 that it will be rescinding Obama-era guidance on how schools should handle sexual assault cases under Title IX. Title IX is among the education amendments passed by the Supreme Court in 1972 and states “no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any...

iPhone prices have become too much to handle

When I was in the third grade, I got my first cell phone. To me, it didn’t mean much as it was just a way for me to communicate with my mom in case of an emergency. To everyone else, however, it was much more than that. At the time, having a phone at that young of an age was somewhat of a status symbol. Many of my classmates didn’t have phones and they thought my phone was the coolest thing ever. I don’t remember the exact price of my...

Professors should permit mental health days

Some days it comes with absolutely no warning. My shrill alarm wakes me up in the morning. I groggily roll over in bed to shut it off and internally groan, thinking of the day ahead. And this isn’t just an ‘I’m still tired’ groan. No. This is a ‘I truly don’t think I can make it through the day’ groan. The idea of getting out of bed, showering, getting dressed and starting my responsibilities makes me physically sick to my stomach....

Domestic violence issue in NFL shows no signs of slowing down

Ever since the Ray Rice incident, the NFL has been coming down hard on players who have been caught up in any sort of domestic dispute. Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is the latest star to fall into this category, but his case is very different from the others that have been seen recently. Last March, police were called to Landry’s home for a domestic incident involving Landry and his girlfriend, Estrella Cerquiera....

LaMelo Ball has one shoe out the NCAA door

In the last year, LaVar Ball has single-handedly turned his family into the Kardashians of American sports. The father of the Lakers’ first round draft pick, Lonzo Ball, LaVar made waves in the basketball sneaker world after Lonzo rejected sneaker deals from every major brand. By choosing to create Big Baller Brand, the Ball family turned against the establishment, epitomizing the concept of “player empowerment.” The latest stunt by...

Senior Column: My 2 best decisions in life

This will be the last piece I write for The Setonian. That very thought is slowing me down as I type. If you know me, you know that The Setonian has proudly been the focal point of my college career. Recently, someone described this paper to me as my baby. It’s a funny way to phrase it, but it makes sense. I’ve treated my various roles – Staff Writer, Sports Digital Editor, Sports Editor and Editor-in-Chief – like full-time jobs. I...

Senior Column: Knowing what it’s like to face the unknown

With four internships under my belt, a 3.6 GPA, and a senior student leadership position on campus, one would think that I have my future planned, right? Wrong. There’s less than one month until graduation and I still don’t have a job. All I keep hearing is “You’ll figure it out,” or “Everything will fall into place.” Maybe that’s true, but what if it’s not? Yes, I am probably putting too much pressure on myself, which isn’t a...

Column: Adjuncts deserve better compensation

    Over the past four years I’ve absolutely loved being part of the Seton Hall community. Looking back, I realize that my satisfaction stems from a combination of SHU’s atmosphere, finding lifelong friends, joining a top-notch student-run newspaper, and a selection of professors that have had meaningful impacts on me. As a student of the College of Communication and the Arts, many of my professors have been adjuncts. They...

Column: Choosing a major is choosing a journey

I grew up the fifth of seven children with a lot of loud cousins. I’ve never had a problem making my voice heard above the chaotic sounds of my beloved siblings but words don’t always translate into choices.  A lot of my family members and friends went to Seton Hall, majoring mostly in the sciences, graduated and moved on to bigger institutions and better incomes. I barely thought about my choice of college and followed along the path...

Column: How transferring to SHU brought me closer to my grandmother

“Everything happens for a reason,” is the generic response someone says to comfort another during a difficult time. Its purpose is to give hope. Hope is not always an easy thing to have, especially when someone you love becomes ill. Perspectives change. The things that were once so important no longer hold the same kind of value. When I decided that I wanted to transfer from the large university I attended directly after high school...

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...

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...
