Letter to the Editor

Many college students in the twenty first century come to a university with the idea of learning a specific skill.

After a lifetime of faith, DeVoti is on his way to truly actualizing the third. DeVoti has been studying in...

Molina endures road less traveled to become SHU baseball linchpin

Seton Hall senior shortstop Al Molina does not hesitate when diving for a line drive through the gap. He has experienced lows before. A standout for Red Bank Catholic High School, Molina was handed what seemed on the surface like two golden tickets during his senior season of high school in 2014. As it turned out, those tickets were fool’s gold. Molina had to choose between going pro after getting drafted in the 29th-round by the...
