Start stepping outside your comfort zone

Welcome class of 2022 to your new home here at Seton Hall! We are The Setonian, Seton Hall’s student-run newspaper. Our upperclassmen would like to offer our newest members of the Seton Hall community some advice: Get comfortable stepping outside of your comfort zone.

Letter to the Editor

Many college students in the twenty first century come to a university with the idea of learning a specific skill. Perhaps the student wants to become a doctor, a pharmacist, a teacher, a computer specialist, or a journalist, a diplomat, a financial analyst. With a little luck these students will achieve their ultimate goal. The road to that goal is sometimes a straight line. However, just as often the route is circuitous. On May 20,...

In Thomas Schwartz’s article “’Rumored’ Criminal Justice Curriculum Changes Worry Students” (4/11/2018), he reported that I had engaged in a “questionable” practice of selling a textbook that required students to pay me $20., but he failed to report that I did not require students to buy this casebook, but only to read the legal cases in it. I informed them that they could obtain these cases, listed in my course syllabus, free online....

Letter to the editor

This spring we have had a number of campus conversations around issues of diversity, both in and out of the classroom. The Executive Committee of the College of Arts and Sciences Faculty wanted to take this opportunity to express our commitment to principles of academic freedom in the classroom and on campus. We maintain a strong commitment to principles of critical and independent thinking, which are the very core of a liberal arts...

Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate tenure rules

Following the death of former first lady Barbara Bush, an English professor at Fresno State University tweeted that she was pleased that Mrs. Bush died. After receiving a lot of blowback from students and others on the social media site, Professor Randa Jarrar proceeded to antagonize the fight. She tweeted back at students and others who claimed that they were going to call the university and complain about her statements. “You can...

Senior column: This was such a waste of my time

Sitting at a desk in Fahy Hall classroom 123, I gazed out the window at South Orange Avenue, watching cars whip down the street. I was trying to pass the time in my Logic class – or was it some music class? Or was it that class I took in which we talked about mazes for an entire semester? Hm, maybe it was the one that theorized why people talk to each other. I can’t remember which class I was in at that moment. You see, I, a...

Dear Editors, As deans of the College of Nursing, School of Health and Medical Sciences and School of Medicine, we are writing in response to the April 19 editorial “Hasta la vista, Seton Hall School of Medicine.” We do not believe that it accurately represents the University’s plans for the new Interprofessional Health Sciences (IHS) campus and the School of Medicine. While the related news article about these plans correctly...

We don’t care about when you were ‘our age’

Millennials and post-millennials, also called Generation Z, get a bad rep, one they don’t deserve. As members of these generations, the members of The Setonian eboard know a little about the subject. Older generations have called us “special snowflakes” who complain too much and need to grow up. The truth is that we aren’t complaining. We are simply voicing our opinions and demanding change for a better society. Younger generations...

Senior column: It is never too late to do a 180

I went to a high school that molded engineers, and my class was filled with some of the smartest math and science students in New Jersey. I loved math throughout my school years, but liked it less as I got older. It became harder for me to picture being in math and science for the rest of my life.   I had taken just two communications classes throughout high school outside English courses, and those two classes opened my eyes to a...

Hasta la vista, Seton Hall School of Medicine

With the way Seton Hall was publicizing the success of the new Seton Hall-Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine, you’d think things were going swell for the newly accredited school. So it’s safe to say that the announcement that SHU will no longer be funding the medical school came as a shock to many in the university community – especially to the students in the College of Nursing and School of Health and Medical Sciences, who will...

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...
