New NBA Draft rules provide college players with flexibility

College basketball recently made a monumental change to its foundation, and it comes in the form of an adjustment in which the “One and Done” rule may finally be terminated. Since the adoption of the “One and Done” in 2006, no high school players have been able to make the leap from senior year of high school to the NBA. Now, the NCAA has proposed a change in which high school players can forgo the college experience depending on how...

Kaepernick’s Nike deal is about more than sports

On Monday night, Nike launched its 30th-anniversary ad campaign. It was received to some’s liking and to other’s anger. Nike has always been able to stir discussion in its campaigns, but this one got even more people talking due to a commonly controversial figure being the focal point: Colin Kaepernick. The ad was announced with a close-up photo of Kaepernick with a simple statement stapled in white letters; “Believe in something....

SHU students should be required to visit CAPS

A lot of things have happened in my personal life since I started college. Family illnesses and the stress of my busy schedule led my mother to ask me if I wanted to go see a counselor. At first I was nervous, but then realized it was a good decision to speak to someone outside of my family and friends. Many students across the world and at SHU could also benefit from professional counseling, but they don’t have someone to give them...

Letter to the Editor

Many college students in the twenty first century come to a university with the idea of learning a specific skill. Perhaps the student wants to become a doctor, a pharmacist, a teacher, a computer specialist, or a journalist, a diplomat, a financial analyst. With a little luck these students will achieve their ultimate goal. The road to that goal is sometimes a straight line. However, just as often the route is circuitous. On May 20,...

In Thomas Schwartz’s article “’Rumored’ Criminal Justice Curriculum Changes Worry Students” (4/11/2018), he reported that I had engaged in a “questionable” practice of selling a textbook that required students to pay me $20., but he failed to report that I did not require students to buy this casebook, but only to read the legal cases in it. I informed them that they could obtain these cases, listed in my course syllabus, free online....

After receiving a lot of blowback from students and others on the social media site, Professor Randa Jarrar proceeded to antagonize the fight. She tweeted back at students and others who claimed that they were going to call the university and complain about her statements. “You can...

Senior column: This was such a waste of my time

Sitting at a desk in Fahy Hall classroom 123, I gazed out the window at South Orange Avenue, watching cars whip down the street. I was trying to pass the time in my Logic class – or was it some music class? Or was it that class I took in which we talked about mazes for an entire semester? Hm, maybe it was the one that theorized why people talk to each other. I can’t remember which class I was in at that moment. You see, I, a...

Dear Editors, As deans of the College of Nursing, School of Health and Medical Sciences and School of Medicine, we are writing in response to the April 19 editorial “Hasta la vista, Seton Hall School of Medicine.” We do not believe that it accurately represents the University’s plans for the new Interprofessional Health Sciences (IHS) campus and the School of Medicine.
