Editorial: America needs more than just words from leaders, it needs action

“I can’t breathe.”  Those were the last words uttered by George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American father of two, last Tuesday while former Minneapolis Police Officer Derrick Chauvin kneeled on his neck for several minutes, even after his body went limp. In the days since, American cities have erupted in protest and violence over yet another instance of violence perpetrated against an African American civilian, which in...

Senior column: I’m learning to let go of the things I can’t control

Well, I’m here.  Photo courtesy of Isabel Soisson This is officially the last piece I will ever write for The Setonian. This paper has been my home for the past four years; it has defined my college experience. I’ve given my entire life to this paper over the past four years, and I will never, ever downplay the profound effect the experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve met have had on my life.  This certainly wasn’t the...

Senior column: We need to accept this new normal

It is no surprise to anyone that the longer this pandemic goes on, the more people are going to anxiously await the day life can go back to the way it was. Believe me, I get it. For the last four years, I spent most of my time living hundreds, even thousands of miles away from my family. I had all the freedom of young adulthood, and now I’m back home in a full house depending on my family to support me. I lost my job when the...

Senior column: Patience is key to navigating coronavirus craziness

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent quarantine began, millions of thoughts have been running through my head. File photo When, if ever, will I walk for graduation? How in the world am I going to get a job in sports media when there are no sports to cover? When is the next time I will be able to see my friends and members of my extended family? It is hard not to dwell on your own thoughts during this time. With not much...

A message for SHU students regarding finals

Hey, Pirates. Hope you’re all staying safe and healthy. File photo Next week is the last week of classes for the Spring 2020 semester. I know, that came fast. As I’m sure we’re all aware, this semester hasn’t exactly been normal. We only really had half of it physically on campus, and we’re all dealing with a lot of change, uncertainty and new feelings. This all being said, the last week of classes means something else: finals....

You’re going to have to vote for Joe Biden

Senior column: What we can learn from the pandemic

I spent weeks thinking about what I wanted my senior column to be about. I imagined it to be some sort of SHU swan song; I’d talk about my favorite parts of campus, the friends I made, the mentors I had and the things that I learned over the past four years. But that initial idea changed because it’s hard to ignore everything that’s going on in the world right now. Photo via state.gov The coronavirus is real and it’s scary. In an...

Senior column: Please don’t make me vote for Joe Biden

There’s no need to be overly productive during a global pandemic

Hey, Pirates. I hope you’re holding up as best as can be expected during this unprecedented time. File photo Last week’s Voice addressed our seniors. The Setonian wanted to remind you that it’s alright to be sad. Missing out on major life events like graduating college on time is heartbreaking, and we wanted to make sure SHU seniors knew that.  This week, we want to talk to anybody who is reading our paper right now.  Since...

Senior column: Student-athletes should mourn but be grateful for the connections they made along the way

I was extremely lucky that I got to finish my senior season as a swimmer a week and a half before the cancellations of professional and collegiate sports. With everything going on in the world right now, the cancellation of NCAA competitions may seem like the bottom of the list in terms of importance on the world scale. However, for many student-athletes across the United States, losing the end of your senior season can feel as...
