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...

Letter to the Editor: Giving Back

Letter to the Editor   Dear Editor, I am writing in response to your editorial “Seton Hall asks students for too much on Giving Tuesday.” I am disappointed for a variety of reasons.
