Senior Column: My 2 best decisions in life

This will be the last piece I write for The Setonian. That very thought is slowing me down as I type. If you know me, you know that The Setonian has proudly been the focal point of my college career. Recently, someone described this paper to me as my baby. It’s a funny way to phrase it, but it makes sense. I’ve treated my various roles – Staff Writer, Sports Digital Editor, Sports Editor and Editor-in-Chief – like full-time jobs. I...

Ignore the naysayers: Change brings new opportunity

As college students on the Setonian Editorial Board, many of us journalism majors, we are constantly being told we are going into a dying field. Our majors will probably never make it into a spot on the top ten list for the most lucrative career path, or the best return for your investment in education, or the best field to get into at the current moment, or… we get it. Actually, Career Cast’s most recent Job Rating Report for 2016...

College sexual assault still shrouded in misunderstanding

By now many news organizations, including The Setonian, have investigated and discussed the shocking statistic revealed by the Association of American Universities that one in five women will be sexually assaulted during their undergraduate college career. Celebrities like Lady Gaga, who drew necessary attention to the issue of sexual assault with a breathtaking tribute to survivors at the Oscars, and lawmakers like Vice President Joe...

Take advantage of your resources, take challenging courses

Suffering exists. I find comfort in this first noble truth of Buddhism because it explains the necessary struggle to continue to move forward and to succeed. In my time at Seton Hall, I chose to be tested. I chose a difficult path, one with “suffering” in order to find truth and to find myself. Taking a variety of classes that pushed me out of my comfort zone was my most important choice in college. I’ll come right out and say it: I...

What’s SHU doing? Rival school snags Obama to speak

“I’ve heard some college campuses where they don’t want to have a guest speaker who is too conservative or they don’t want to read a book if it has language that is offensive to African-Americans or somehow sends a demeaning signal towards women,” President Barack Obama said during a town hall appearance in Des Moines, Iowa back in September. “I gotta tell you I don’t agree with that either. I don’t agree that you, when you...

Timing is everything: Consider circumstance when making choices in college

To be honest, I had no idea what to write for my “senior column.” I put that in quotations because every time I say the words “senior column,” I put the little finger quotes up in my head. I guess it’s because this will hopefully not be the last thing I write in my aspiring career in journalism. It also could be because I really can’t fathom the fact that my time at Seton Hall is coming to a close. I feel like I just got here...

Social media inserts democracy into political process

The unfair nature of the primary process has come under fire lately as supporters of parties on both the left and the right are publicly criticizing the deciding power of superdelegates. It is undeniable that it has been an election of many firsts, but one of the most interesting aspects to observe in this race for party nominations is the wildfire impact of social media in the spreading of political news, which is more prevalent than...

From Delaware to Peru: Finding your passion takes some exploration

I visited Seton Hall on one of those bitter February days when campus is dead. I tried not to stare at the tri-level of Xavier that reminded me on first glance of prison cells as my mom drove along that stretch of road. We walked around as much of campus as we could bear. The wind whipped my hair around and I buried as much of my face in my scarf as I could, though it still tore through every layer I wore that day. It was as though...

Strutting through life in stylish shoes: Wear the pair you won’t regret

Blistered, battered, bruised, beet red: they can have this charming effect on you. Caged, buckled, tied, even roped and chained, they hold a part of you captive each day. To restrain? No, quite the opposite. They help mobilize you, your goals, and your vision. Symbolically, they tell the story of you revealing where you’ve been, where you’re going. Although one pair may speak louder than the next aesthetically, acoustically, we all...

Case on affirmative action shines spotlight on power and opportunity

I am a student. I am representative of a minority group. I am also aspiring to be an attorney. So, when it comes to assessing a Supreme Court case on affirmative action in university admissions, especially after Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died, my eyes and ears are wide open. When it comes down to it, it’s all about power. The balance of power tied to opportunity. The power of nine justices. The power to make major legal...
