The Voice: Seeing right through Seton Hall’s lack of transparency

The Voice The issue of transparency is creating a lot of buzz in the country right now. Like almost everything else relevant to today’s news cycle, that is because of President Donald Trump. With new and needed tax reform on the table, the commander-in-chief still refuses to release his own tax returns. There is also the fresher matter of the White House’s decision to keep visitor logs locked away, a break from practice under...

The Voice: Dear Seton Hall: A commencement speaker follow-up

The Voice Dear Seton Hall, It’s been awhile. Back in November, we, The Setonian, wrote you, the University, a letter expressing seniors’ insistence on having a commencement speaker. Of course, now we know you had much bigger problems to deal with at the time. Boy, did May 15 look like it was going to be a mess, what, with multiple ceremonies, angry triplets and limited tickets among the many issues. But, after some outside influence,...

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....

The Voice: Presidents come and go, but it’s others who make Seton Hall

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...

The Voice: Graduating seniors deserve better from Seton Hall

The Voice On Tuesday, Feb. 7, Seton Hall sent out an email in which details for the 2017 commencement ceremony were finally released. It’s about time. With graduation just a few months away, seniors finally know what time they will be walking. They know that they will walk in the fieldhouse. They know that they will receive four tickets for loved ones to watch in-person. They know that they will get another three tickets for a Walsh...

The Voice: Like everyone else, Muslims in search of welcoming

The Voice “I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” These are the first words the Seton Hall community saw on Tuesday when it opened a statement from University President Dr. A. Gabriel Esteban. It is a quote from the Bible, but those words could have just as easily come from Esteban himself, a native of the Philippines. Disregard context and those words apply to each and every one of us. Whether it be as a new student at Seton...

The Voice: Seton Hall neglecting current students with construction

The Voice As construction continues on campus, not everyone is happy with the order of Seton Hall’s priorities. The Welcome Center has not been well-received by all. Earlier in the year, The Setonian reported that some students were unhappy that the project took away much-needed parking space. Now, in this week’s issue, students living in Cabrini have voiced their frustrations as well. Several residents told The Setonian that the...

The Voice: An impactful semester in review and more to come

The Voice With finals and winter break approaching, this is The Setonian’s final issue of 2016. Don’t worry – we’ll still have the latest coverage online for you over break – but with no more print issues until January, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the semester. It’s been a whirlwind – isn’t each semester for everyone in some way? For us, that means constantly writing, reporting, editing, photographing and designing. Some...
