Senior column: ‘Smile because it happened’

Some people claim that they chose their college because, “they knew in their heart,” or that, “it felt like home when they first stepped on campus.” That could not be any less true for me. Four years ago, as a 17-year-old high school senior, I had no idea what I wanted in a college. I had visited several colleges in the northeast, but I was indecisive and loved at least five or six of them. All I really knew was that I was interested...

Whatever will be, will be

I am a planner through and through. Since birth I have been creating detailed life plans to help me reach my lofty goals. Some examples: When I was 3 years old, I heard my family say that I could be anything I wanted to be. I took it literally, so I wanted to be a butterfly – a hard goal to plan for. Around Years 4 and 5, I decided to settle on the much more realistic goal of becoming a country music singer. I can’t tell you how...

Club rugby, a campus mainstay, experiencing competitive success

Most students come into college without having ever played rugby, or even knowing any details about the sport – besides the fact that it’s similar to football, but with no padding. “It’s continuous, if you get tackled, you have to keep going as if it’s one big play,” senior and three-year club rugby player Connor Cadrin said. The Seton Hall Rugby Football Club is one of the most popular club sports on campus. An official team for over...
