Give us the commencement speaker we deserve

Hello Seton Hall administrators! How are you doing? With the school year back in full swing we know you must be extremely busy with meetings, paperwork and, of course, planning the Class of 2018’s commencement ceremony. Now, we know it’s a bit soon to be thinking of graduation, considering it’s only September, but we at The Setonian like to stay on top of things. We can see Seton Hall’s Commencement Committee is staying on top of...

Shelters rescuing hurricane- impacted animals are heroes

Among the organizations stepping in to help the areas affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are The American Red Cross, UNICEF and animal shelters around the country. Each of these organizations help in different ways and do impactful work and the generosity from animal shelters outside the south housing animals from shelters in Houston, Texas and Florida is just as important as the other recovery efforts. Both before and after...

We need to support fellow students, no matter their citizenship

At this point, most of us are aware that President Donald Trump called for the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA, which was initiated by former President Barack Obama in 2008, has given nearly 800,000 children who were brought into the country illegally the opportunity to attend college, apply for jobs, receive driver’s licenses and pay income taxes. If Congress fails to enact an alternate program...

We’re here to report the truth, and nothing but the truth

Welcome back Seton Hall! With the new year ahead of us, we would like to take the time to thank you for your readership. The Setonian would be nothing if it weren’t for the students, faculty and administration at SHU. That being said, we would also like to reiterate our mission here on campus. As a journalistic organization, The Setonian is dedicated to one thing and one thing only: the truth. Though we are ‘only’ a college media...

The Voice: Thanks to the man behind the scenes of The Setonian

As school winds down, it is with great pride that we look back upon a very successful year. The Setonian’s editors truly feel our organization has made an impact on campus like never before. We’re not the only ones that think so, with administrators and faculty going out of their way all year long to commend our student journalists on a job well-done. However, there is one man who, outside of our newsroom, does not get the credit he...

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: 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...

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....

Since the announcement, the Seton Hall community has voiced mixed reactions to Esteban’s impending departure. On one side of the aisle,...

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...
