Open your eyes people, racism is far from dead

Some may think that because it’s 2017 that it’s common sense to treat others with dignity and respect. Unfortunately that thought is wrong. There are now two open investigations regarding racially charged incidents that were aimed at students of Seton Hall. These incidents, an email and a social media post, happened within two weeks of each other and were both done in cowardice. The authors of the email and the post concealed...

Artificial intelligence is nothing for you to fear

As new technology develops, there is a rising consensus among prominent scientists that artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. Although this belief is ubiquitous, it is not necessarily true. The reality is that there are a lot of assumptions and implications generated from such a belief. You should not believe that artificial intelligence is dangerous simply because prominent scientists believe so. We know that...

Land of the free, home of the semi-automatics

It’s sickening that we had to scroll through our news feeds after waking up on Monday morning and read about yet another horrific mass shooting. The awful the Las Vegas massacre, which was preceded by the Dallas sniper attack, the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting, the San Bernardino attack, the Aurora, Colorado massacre and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. These senseless acts of violence happened over the span of five years...

We need stricter gun control in the United States

Stephen Paddock was found with 23 guns in his Mandalay Bay hotel room after he shot and killed 59 people in Las Vegas on Sunday. An additional 19 guns were found in his Mesquite, Nev. home. Omar Mateen, whose name was on two federal watch lists for being a known ISIS supporter, easily purchased two handguns within a week before murdering 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The guns that were legally obtained by these men took...

Stop complaining if you’re not going to be part of the change

Students of Seton Hall: let’s have a little “us” time this week. Sound good? Great. As most of you may know, our University is currently searching for a new president. The Wit/Kiefer firm, which specializes in academic executive position searches, was hired by Seton Hall to aid with the search. The firm visited campus on Sept. 21 to hear what students want from their next president. One might expect this to be a popular forum for...

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.

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,...
