Senior Column: Stress transformed my senior year

For as long as I can remember, college has always been difficult. Being a first generation college student is one of the most stressful situations I have ever been placed in. Learning to navigate college without familial assistance has been very difficult. I originally thought college was going to be a 24-hour party, but instead it was as if adulthood slapped me across the face. By my second semester, it dawned on me that nobody was...

Finals are stressful and a big source of anxiety for students near the end of the semester. Between writing papers, completing projects and giving presentations, many are in a time crunch. At this point in the semester, many students are stressed....

SHU should be more transparent about where our money goes

The financial burden of college students doesn’t stop at tuition. There are many other fees that are tacked onto the tuition bill that students have to pay. For example, according to the Seton Hall website, there is a one-time $300 new student fee. There is no explanation for what this money is used for or where it goes. It’s just a charge on every freshman’s account. On top of that fee, are additional fees for each semester. If you...

Since then, many have questioned the effect that e-cigarettes...

College students should be required to be registered to vote

When I turned 18 years old, I could buy lottery tickets, get my adult license and finally register to vote. Since then, I have voted in every election – even the primaries. I even vote in all of the Student Government Association (SGA) elections. I find it exciting to have my vote count because I know how it feels to not have your voice heard or perspective cared about. Not all college students share the same excitement. Less than...

College students aren’t getting enough sleep

College students have a lot of responsibilities. Trying to balance academic work, a social life and an internship or job can be stressful.

Many students, however, aren’t reaching this target. On average, most college students get 6 to 6.9 hours of sleep...

SHU students should be required to visit CAPS

A lot of things have happened in my personal life since I started college. Family illnesses and the stress of my busy schedule led my mother to ask me if I wanted to go see a counselor. At first I was nervous, but then realized it was a good decision to speak to someone outside of my family and friends. Many students across the world and at SHU could also benefit from professional counseling, but they don’t have someone to give them...
