It’s too early to determine the NBA’s Power Rankings

The inaugural games of the 2018-19 NBA season are officially in the books. The Boston Celtics defeated the Philadelphia 76ers, 105-87, and the Golden State Warriors edged out the Oklahoma City Thunder, 108-100, on Tuesday night.

At that time, we were in the process of hiring a new faculty member, and we completed that process in time for the start of the Fall semester....

Following National Voter Registration Day on Sept. 25, The Setonian wants to remind students to vote. A lot of people in society say that our generation doesn’t care about politics or voting.

The Seton Hall women’s soccer team was defeated, 3-0, by DePaul University on Saturday afternoon in its first Big East game of the season.

Seton Hall still not a smoke-free zone

The Seton Hall bookstore sells cigarettes, despite the health risk that they present, and as a result students on campus are asking why.
