Letter to the Editor

To the Editor of the Setonian: I am writing in response to the March 1, 2018 article you published about an experience that occurred at the South Orange Performing Arts Center, and to let your readership know what we have done since being made aware of the incident, and what we will be doing going forward. On Saturday, February 24, 2018, Ms. Rawda Abdelmenam, a Seton Hall student and South Orange community member, was asked by the...

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editors, I write this letter in order to apologize to you, our students, for what is happening, happened, and will happen at Seton Hall University. As demonstrated in the College of Arts & Sciences faculty meeting on February 23rd concerning the “diversity” requirement, inherent to the forums on “Microaggressions” and “Privilege”, and has been reported to me on numerous occasions over the past several years, many members of...

Letter to the editor:

Dear Editors, When I arrived at the University on Tuesday I was in the parking [deck] looking for a space. When I got to level 4 I saw a car on fire. I assumed that someone had already notified security. However I decided to call security anyway fully expecting to be told that the fire had already been reported. In fact, no one had reported the fire. Students and others just walked by the burning car without showing any concern even...

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter in response to “Real Talk on Race at Seton Hall” event that occurred on campus last week. Disappointing. Historically these type of events rarely meet the expectations of those attending it, especially, the ardent supports of racial justice. That is not to say the event in itself a failure, I was surprised at the large amount of students and faculty in attendance. However, this time around the event failed to...

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter in response to The Setonian article regarding the lack of racial diversity among the full-time faculty Seton Hall University, not shocking or surprising. Found in several marketing promotions is mention of a racially diverse student population, but noticeably absent is full-time faculty; we know now given the recent coverage. Although, I have met numerous students of racially diverse backgrounds, I in good...

Letter to the Editor

By her own calculations, the taxes of a Rutgers University-Newark graduate student in biological sciences will go up from $2,824 last year to $5,174 under the new Republican tax-reform plan in the House of Representatives. According to a recent article in “The Verge” reporting on the new tax bill, this student went on to say that as a result she might have to drop out of her program, thereby losing four years’ worth of education. In...

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter in response to an article featured in The Setonian under the Through Our Eyes section regarding the coverage of the Jemele Hill controversy at ESPN. The article written through the worldview of one individual fails to understand the viewpoints of others. The author quickly admonishes the action a black woman, but fails to do the same with President Trump, a white man. The President has espoused claims that are...

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter so that the coverage in The Setonian of the A&S Faculty’s vote of no confidence in Interim Provost Boroff can be more accurate than the article on September 14th may have led people to comprehend. Because the meeting was closed, it is understandable, but there were dissenting views in that meeting and the A&S faculty was far from unanimous. Similarly, Professors Goedert and Mirabella do not speak for...

Letter: SHU’s helping hand

Dear Editor, When you open the Seton Hall University website, a large tab off to the right-center of the screen reads “Catholic Mission.” Under that tab a “values and tradition” page explains all the ways our campus provides a helping hand while embodying the Catholic message to assist. I’ve been on this campus for four years. I’ve met a lot of people who represent those values. But none have been better, or more helpful, than...

Letter: Failure to LEED

To the Editor, I read with great interest the recent article about the construction progress of the new Welcome Center at the Main Gate. (April 20, 2017). There was no mention, however, of it being built according to LEED standards, that is, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. These standards have been well-established for many years by the U.S. Green Building Council and provide for the designation of a building as...

Letter: SGA senator reacts

Letter to the Editor To the Editor, On Feb. 13, the Editorial Board of The Diplomatic Envoy published an opinion piece criticizing the SGA Diplomacy Senators’ decision to abstain from a bill on undocumented immigrants. The Diplomatic Envoy had every right to criticize their elected senators with regards to this bill brought before the SGA senate. For the sake of transparency, let me tell you why I am writing to you today. The two and...

Letter: Boycotting Black History Month

Letter to the Editor To the Editor, I cannot in good conscience, nor will I, celebrate Black History Month. I am saddened by the fact that the recognition of the contributions of African-Americans (and multiple other ethnic groups) are reduced to a single month. The implicit statement that is made by such an assignment is that the rest of the year is reserved for the celebration of some other demographic, which has presumably added...
