Letter to the Editor:

Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. Stop blaming guns for the actions of criminals. All American can agree on at least one thing: A world with less violence is a good thing. Notice I did not say gun violence, domestic violence, or hate-crime based violence. All violence is an issue, and those who commit those acts should be punished. The nature of criminals is that they do not follow laws. Writing more restrictions into law...

After nine days of occupying Presidents Hall, the Concerned 44 student activist group abruptly ended their sit-in after administrators and student organizers agreed to return to the negotiating table to work together on fulfilling their demands. Interim President Mary Meehan announced the end of the sit-in in a campus-wide email in which she reaffirmed the University’s commitment to continuing the “ongoing dialogue” and promised...

U.S. national parks being affected by climate change, study finds

I want to bring awareness to a disturbing statistic about how temperature increase is leading to the impending destruction of America’s national parks. As symbols of our country and natural sanctuaries, we need to protect the ecosystems and landscapes reserved for our enjoyment. A September 2018 CNN article, titled, “America’s national parks are warming and drying up faster than the rest of the country, says a new study,” cited a...

Past & Present Serena comes out in U.S. Open fiasco

Since beginning her professional career in 1995, Serena Williams has been somewhat of an enigma. In the early days of her career, Williams was a fiery and unfiltered competitor. She would frequently berate officials and let her thoughts be known when she felt she was wronged on the court. Bursts of outrage in the 2004, ‘09 and ‘11 U.S. Open’s cemented Williams’ status as a dominant player who had a propensity for losing her cool....

Seton Hall students took a trip last weekend to the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) to enjoy the Seton Hall Theatre Department’s rendition of “Steel Magnolias.” However, one SHU student said she was the victim of racial profiling.

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter in response to “Real Talk on Race at Seton Hall” event that occurred on campus last week. Disappointing. Historically these type of events rarely meet the expectations of those attending it, especially, the ardent supports of racial justice. That is not to say the event in itself a failure, I was surprised at the large amount of students and faculty in attendance. However, this time around the event failed to...

NBC should have acted quicker in the firing of Lauer

She’s faking it. I don’t believe her. She’s just accusing him to get her 15 minutes of fame. Why did she wait so long to come forward with these claims? These comments and questions are common responses when a sexual misconduct claim is made against a high-profile man. We’ve seen these comments made in reference to men like film producer Harvey Weinstein, Republican politician Roy Moore and comedian Louis C.K. However, those comments...
