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...

Professors should permit mental health days

Some days it comes with absolutely no warning. My shrill alarm wakes me up in the morning. I groggily roll over in bed to shut it off and internally groan, thinking of the day ahead. And this isn’t just an ‘I’m still tired’ groan. No. This is a ‘I truly don’t think I can make it through the day’ groan. The idea of getting out of bed, showering, getting dressed and starting my responsibilities makes me physically sick to my stomach....

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. The Setonian would be nothing if it weren’t for the students, faculty and administration at SHU. That being said, we would also like to reiterate our mission here on campus. As a journalistic organization, The Setonian is dedicated to one thing and one thing only: the truth. Though we are ‘only’ a college media...

Domestic violence issue in NFL shows no signs of slowing down

Ever since the Ray Rice incident, the NFL has been coming down hard on players who have been caught up in any sort of domestic dispute. Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is the latest star to fall into this category, but his case is very different from the others that have been seen recently. Last March, police were called to Landry’s home for a domestic incident involving Landry and his girlfriend, Estrella Cerquiera....

LaMelo Ball has one shoe out the NCAA door

In the last year, LaVar Ball has single-handedly turned his family into the Kardashians of American sports. The father of the Lakers’ first round draft pick, Lonzo Ball, LaVar made waves in the basketball sneaker world after Lonzo rejected sneaker deals from every major brand. By choosing to create Big Baller Brand, the Ball family turned against the establishment, epitomizing the concept of “player empowerment.” The latest stunt by...

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...

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...

Senior Column: My 2 best decisions in life

This will be the last piece I write for The Setonian. That very thought is slowing me down as I type. If you know me, you know that The Setonian has proudly been the focal point of my college career. Recently, someone described this paper to me as my baby. It’s a funny way to phrase it, but it makes sense. I’ve treated my various roles – Staff Writer, Sports Digital Editor, Sports Editor and Editor-in-Chief – like full-time jobs. I...

Senior Column: Knowing what it’s like to face the unknown

With four internships under my belt, a 3.6 GPA, and a senior student leadership position on campus, one would think that I have my future planned, right? Wrong. There’s less than one month until graduation and I still don’t have a job. All I keep hearing is “You’ll figure it out,” or “Everything will fall into place.” Maybe that’s true, but what if it’s not? Yes, I am probably putting too much pressure on myself, which isn’t a...

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...
