We can’t pick and choose which men to denounce

On Feb. 13, the whole world watched as snowboarder Shaun White won his third ever gold medal at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

Ice is just as – if not more than – dangerous as snow

Hello Seton Hall administrators! It’s been a while since we’ve last chatted. As we write to you on this Wednesday afternoon, we’d wish you a lovely day, but, as you probably already know, the weather permits us to say otherwise. By the time you read this editorial, the hellish mix of snow, rain and ice will have stopped falling from the sky. However, that doesn’t change the fact that it was a big mistake not canceling classes for the...

For the price we pay, our food should be better

Living on campus, many college students are limited to what they can eat, choosing from only the food in the dining hall or the few other options on campus, like Dunkin’ Donuts or the Pirate’s Cove. The food choices students have are not always the healthiest, either. In college cafeterias, many options are available, however, many choose the pizza, fries and cookies over the salad bar. Universities need to do a better job of...

You probably shouldn’t expect to see a rise in ‘beautiful, clean coal’

President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday covered most of the topics one would have expected him to – immigration, infrastructure, the success of his corporate tax cuts and the looming danger of North Korea. One topic that caught some viewers by surprise, though, was the apparent “war on beautiful, clean coal.” For starters, “beautiful?” Really?

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...

We’ve seen these comments made in reference to men like film producer Harvey Weinstein, Republican politician Roy Moore and comedian Louis C.K. However, those comments...

A new governor may give N.J. what it needs – prioritization

On Jan. 16, 2018, Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will leave office, making way for Democrat Phil Murphy, who was elected on Tuesday. It has been an interesting eight years with Christie as governor, to say the least. Though his approval ratings are currently at a record low, he still did some good for the state. He had a tough stance on and fought a hard battle with New Jersey’s opioid epidemic. He also supported N.J....
