Incoming freshmen talk expectations

Students like Harshana Ghoorhoo have come a long way to get to SHU. For Ghoorhoo, a diplomacy and international relations and modern languages major, this transition is quite literal. She is an international student from Mauritius, an island nation on the Indian Ocean. Though she will be far from home, she said that her primary concern is making the most of her college experience. “I wish to be able to share my beliefs and culture and...

For Gregory Lobo, a sophomore history major, the pro-life movement is personal. Lobo was born with spina bifida, a neurological condition. While his mom was pregnant with him, scans revealed that Lobo had a hole in his back, indicative of the disorder. When his parents went back for the next test, the radiologist said to them, “We already diagnosed this. Why haven’t you taken care of it?” Because other options for fetal treatment were...

Letter to the Editor

I am writing this letter in response to The Setonian article regarding the lack of racial diversity among the full-time faculty Seton Hall University, not shocking or surprising. Found in several marketing promotions is mention of a racially diverse student population, but noticeably absent is full-time faculty; we know now given the recent coverage. Although, I have met numerous students of racially diverse backgrounds, I in good...

Student won’t let disability slow him down

Gregory Lobo was born with Spina Bifida, had surgery after he was born and has been wheelchair bound his entire life. While this may hinder some, it is not even a speed bump in Lobo’s life. “Because it’s all I’ve ever known, it doesn’t affect me the same way it might if I had gotten hurt,” said Lobo, a sophomore history major. Spina Bifida is a birth defect where the backbone and membranes surrounding the spinal cord are not...

Jemele Hill situation puts ESPN in tough position

When athletes, or media personalities, enter politics into the equation, it’s often a toxic mix. Take the case of Colin Kaepernick. His decision to kneel during the National Anthem was derived from his personal beliefs regarding politics in the United States. Now he is seeing repercussions from that as no NFL teams will pick him up. Now, ESPN reporter Jemele Hill is in hot water for going on a political Twitter rant. A co-anchor of...

Faith and basketball intertwine at Seton Hall

Just before taking the court, Khadeen Carrington stops. While the rest of the Pirates make their way onto the hardwood, the guard pauses for a quick but essential conversation. It is not with teammates to talk about the contest ahead, nor is it to discuss strategy with head coach Kevin Willard. Instead, Carrington halts to have a word with God. Sort of kneeling, sort of squatting, the junior says a prayer before every game. The ritual...

No matter the cause, protesting as American as it gets

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” In today’s political climate, protests have become a staple in American life and culture. The shooting of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012 led to the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement. On Jan. 21, 2017, women all over the world joined together to support...
