Although sweeping DePaul, 3-0, in its final match of the season on Nov. 17, the Seton Hall volleyball team ended the year on a disappointing note.

The Pirates finished with a 10-20 record overall, including a measly 5-12 in conference play and 2-9 away from their home court. The team’s greatest downfall came...

Win No. 100 cements Yaeger’s legacy in Seton Hall volleyball

In six seasons at Seton Hall, women’s volleyball coach Allison Yaeger has made a name for herself. With a 3-0 sweep of Providence on Sept. 30, Yaeger secured win No. 100, good for second all-time among Pirate head coaches. “I knew it was coming, and I felt like it was a long time coming because we had a little bit of a losing streak going,” Yaeger said. “But I knew going into that Providence game that it was a possibility.” Yaeger led...

By doing so, the NCAA let down student-athletes and universities across the country. The scandal, which was first uncovered six years ago, involved allegations of UNC offering sham classes in a “shadow curriculum.” Under this, students enrolled in...

SHU softball dons gold laces for pediatric cancer

While Seton Hall softball was able to pick up a dramatic walk-off victory over Hofstra University on April 11 at Mike Sheppard, Sr. Field, there was a much bigger cause that each team was playing for than the names on their uniforms. The game was also supporting the Go4theGoal Foundation with Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer.

Column: Adjuncts deserve better compensation

    Over the past four years I’ve absolutely loved being part of the Seton Hall community. Looking back, I realize that my satisfaction stems from a combination of SHU’s atmosphere, finding lifelong friends, joining a top-notch student-run newspaper, and a selection of professors that have had meaningful impacts on me. As a student of the College of Communication and the Arts, many of my professors have been adjuncts. They are hired...

Students await budget cuts, fear losing grants

Being cut from the team didn’t stop him though – the coach granted him permission to exercise with the team and so that is where Terry spent his time after class. He even worked part-time at the pinnacle of high school retail stores – Hollister & Co. He grew up in Jersey...
