Treasurer Jovita Carranza? Okay, now we’re talking

Seniors! We did it! We complained so much that we actually got SHU to listen. We will officially have a commencement speaker in May: U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza. Alright, so we actually can’t take all the credit for this. Complaining only gets you so far – someone needs to be on the other end to listen and actually implement change. So we’re going to do something in this week’s ‘The Voice’ that we don’t typically do that often....

Senior Column: Never be afraid to change the path to your passion

It is crazy to think how fast college flies by. I remember hearing my parents telling me, “enjoy it because college is the best four years of your life.” I feel like it was just yesterday I was sitting in the Boland cellar my freshman year, discussing with my mom what I should change my major to because psychology wasn’t my passion anymore. I never thought I’d be sitting here today preparing to graduate in a little over a month, with...

So, Seton Hall…Are we getting a commencement speaker?

Ah, yes. It’s that time of year again. The birds are (not really) chirping. The weather is (not really) getting warmer. And Seton Hall has (not) announced a commencement speaker for the 2018 graduation ceremony. Please note the sarcasm. Commencement speakers have been a touchy subject for seniors at SHU the last few years. While some may think that having a keynote presentation at graduation is unnecessary, a vast majority believe...

Social media can ruin careers – except the president’s

Twitter has become a widely used social media platform, spreading news and memes to users alike. College professors and job experts are always quick to warn against acting immaturely or inappropriately on social media because it can impact your path to success in the future. However, it appears our president isn’t held to that same standard. On March 13, President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that former Secretary of State Rex...

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...

Try not to forget what this warm February weather entails

Feb. 21, five days after a snowstorm, the weather forecast is partly sunny with a high of 78 degrees. As cheerful as the atmosphere of the Seton Hall Green is when the weather is nice, with people lounging on blankets and playing Frisbee, the reason behind such mild weather calls for a great deal of concern. Our world is changing for the worst and the damage may be irreversible. Campus certainly is not the only place experiencing an...

Hey Seton Hall, where was our PirateAlert?

On Feb. 20, a fire erupted on the fourth floor of the parking deck, damaging two vehicles. Students who witnessed the smoke and flames billowing out of the structure were quick to spread the news on social media. Platforms like Twitter and Facebook were where many students discovered that there was a fire on campus. Some were alarmed after seeing photographs of the incident, worrying if their cars were affected by the fire. It would...

Don’t be mad at the Financial Aid Office, be mad at the DOE

It is no secret that students were concerned after Seton Hall’s Financial Aid Office announced a new attendance confirmation process for the 2018 spring semester. Gone are the days of students verifying their own attendance for their classes. That is now dependent on the professors, as is the distribution of students’ federal aid money. When it comes to financial aid, college students are going to react emotionally. It is...

We can’t pick and choose which men to denounce

On Feb. 13, the whole world watched as snowboarder Shaun White won his third ever gold medal at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Most Americans cheered the victory, supporting the athlete who captured another gold medal for the United States. One person most likely did not share that elation, however. Her name is Lena Zawaideh. On the surface, White seems like and all-around great guy. He has a charming personality and he’s an amazing...
