You need to take advantage of your time off

It’s that time of the year, Pirates. Finals. (cue groaning). I know, finals are nobody’s favorite. The one good thing about the end of the semester though? Winter break. File photo After a long, grueling semester where us Seton Hall students no doubt grinded in every facet of life, we deserve some time off. The faculty do too. I wanted to take the last Voice to offer some advice to the students reading this from The Setonian: take...

Thanksgiving is for families of all kinds

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, Pirates. The Setonian won’t be publishing next Thursday because we’ll all be busy eating our weight in carbs, which is the true meaning of the holiday. So, we wanted to leave the Seton Hall community with a little message as we all go into our week off. Photo via Flickr The holidays are a hard time for a lot of people. While some have big, happy, loving families who take holiday planning very...

Journalists are under no obligation to apologize for reporting

On Nov. 12, it came to light that editors at Northwestern University’s independent student newspaper, The Daily Northwestern, apologized last Sunday for their coverage of student protesters. Photo via Wikipedia Commons The demonstrators were protesting an event hosted on campus by the College Republicans which featured former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The protesters, who were barred from attending the free event meant to focus...

Demanding doctor’s notes is classist and childish

Listen up, professors. We all have respect for what you do. Teachers are some of the most dedicated, hardworking professionals in the world, and they deserve this respect and recognition. Aiming to educate and disseminate information to the younger generation is one of the most noble professions that exists. No one is denying that. Photo via Flickr It’s also no secret that there are good and bad professors, and I don’t just mean this...

It’s perfectly okay to still be a kid sometimes

Today is Halloween, Seton Hall! You know what that means: chilly weather, costumes, parties, and endless candy. Halloween, when you were a kid, was the best: most of us couldn’t wait to run home from school, put on our costumes and meet up with all our friends to go trick-to-treating. There’s been a lot of backlash online recently about whether or not it’s appropriate for teenagers to go trick-or-treating. A lot of people have pushed...

It’s important to indulge your parents if you can

This week’s Voice is for you, seniors. We’re over halfway through the first half of our senior year. For some of you, graduation may only be a short seven weeks away. File photo This whole week, Seton Hall is hosting photographers on campus to take our senior portraits, if we so choose. To sit for the photos is free, and they’re even being taken in what was many of our freshman dorm – Boland Hall. I myself didn’t really care one way...

Maybe you should cut something out of your schedule

In the last decade, awareness about the importance of taking care of your mental health has gotten more attention than it ever has. Between dozens of articles, countless self-help books and even celebrities beginning to come out and discuss their own internal struggles, the stigma that surrounds mental health is slowly, but surely, diminishing. Photo via Flickr Much of the literature and conversations about mental health take a good...

Public officials have an obligation to speak with the press

Corrections: This editorial incorrectly conflated Booker’s 2020 campaign with his official U.S. Senate office. The Service Academy Day event that the reporter attended was hosted by Senator Booker’s official U.S. Senate office and was in no way affiliated with his 2020 campaign. Also, due to uncertainty in scheduling, Booker’s team did provide the reporter with an exclusive statement from Booker for The Setonian that answered the...

Ignoring politics is a privilege, not a personality trait

When I sit down to write The Voice every week, I try to not only think of a topic, but I also attempt to think of a way I can relate the topic to not only Seton Hall students, but also the entire SHU community. When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that the House of Representatives would launch a formal impeachment investigation against President Trump, I thought to myself, “Well, obviously The Voice has to be about this.”...

We should all question presidential candidates

The 2020 presidential election is still 14 months away, but with the constant political coverage, you’d think it was happening in just two months. Photo via Flickr Between the press coverage of Joe Biden’s alleged sexual misconduct allegations or Elizabeth Warren’s apparent “Native American” heritage, it’s no secret that 2020 is gearing up to be both a compelling and historical election. The latest investigation into a 2020 candidate...

What we can learn from the Newark water crisis

Our front page story this week discusses the water crisis that is currently affecting about 10% of homes in New Jersey’s largest city, Newark. According to CNN, Newark city officials don’t know when exactly the city’s drinking water started to become contaminated with lead, but city officials told the news source that it was “due to the releasing of lead from plumbing and lead service lines on private property between the street and...
