We don’t care about when you were ‘our age’

Millennials and post-millennials, also called Generation Z, get a bad rep, one they don’t deserve. As members of these generations, the members of The Setonian eboard know a little about the subject.

Universities need to do a better job of...

Music-ed program makes sure students are hitting the right notes

Seton Hall’s music education program is small, allowing for a lot of individual attention for students striving to combine their devotion to music and teaching, while joining orchestrations and preparing for concerts such as the “Prayer for Peace” on Oct. 27. “I’ve always wanted to be a teacher since I was a little kid,” said Jordan Green, a sophomore music education major. “I’ve also been doing music my whole life and I play many...

Students present research to specialists in Canada

Binge watching a favorite TV show and spending hours lying in bed hitting the “next episode” button is how many college students spend the summer. Alyza Roman was no different, except that she was watching four seasons of “Cops,” roughly 38 episodes each, with her criminal justice professor, Dr. Lonnie Athens, and two fellow students. At the beginning of the spring 2017 semester, Athens devised a research project in which he and three...
