Remember to reflect and finish the year out strong

We’re in the home stretch now, Pirates! It’s officially the week after Easter break, and we all know what that means: sunny skies, lounging on the Green and everyone’s favorite: finals. File Photo We at The Setonian think that it can be universally agreed upon that finals during spring semesters are so, so much worse than finals during fall semesters. After all, it’s beautiful out, and the last thing any of us want to be doing is...

Students hold vigil for victims of Christchurch terrorist attack

A somber group of roughly 20 students gathered around Seton Hall’s seal Monday evening to commemorate the lives lost in the Christchurch, New Zealand mosque shootings last week.

Backlash toward CTE inspired law is abhorrent

Earlier this week Massachusetts lawmakers announced that they were considering a bill to prevent children from playing tackle football before seventh grade. The reaction online was disorienting and alarming. The objections to the proposed law – which would cost violators a $2,000 fine – were centered around kumbaya notions of tackle football instilling toughness and the completely broken, incoherent logic that a sport which destroys...

While sophomore Andres Acevedo and freshman Deven Ramachandran relished the opportunities of playing in Texas and the warm Bay Area breezes, other golfers decided to use the extended break to play as a group.

We at The Setonian became aware of this after the subjects in this article reached out to us and said that they never spoke with this reporter. The writer has been fired and is no longer welcome at the paper. In addition to this, the students who were misquoted have been apologized to...

Kevin Willard’s schedule gripes are warranted

Kevin Willard has never been a fan of the way the Big East puts together its conference schedule. From the day he took over, Willard has always had something to say about Seton Hall’s conference slate. From rugged weeks against stacked opponents to the ridiculous 9 p.m. time slot that the Pirates often found themselves relegated to, Willard has never been shy about voicing his displeasure about the schedule. Most of the time,...
