College is what you make of it, and that includes SHU

“Oh my god! Seton Hall is third in unhappiness for colleges? I knew I hated this school. Why did I ever decide to go here? This school makes me so sad.” As a student at Seton Hall, you are lying if you have not heard at least 20 different people say something along these lines. People love to complain, and because the Princeton Review dubbed the Hall as the third unhappiest school in America, all the students in South Orange feel this...

Journalists are under no obligation to apologize for reporting

On Nov. 12, it came to light that editors at Northwestern University’s independent student newspaper, The Daily Northwestern, apologized last Sunday for their coverage of student protesters. Photo via Wikipedia Commons The demonstrators were protesting an event hosted on campus by the College Republicans which featured former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The protesters, who were barred from attending the free event meant to focus...

We don’t know how to listen to each other anymore

In a world constantly buzzing with social interaction, proper communication is essential in daily life. We communicate everyday – whether it be through face-to-face interaction, social media messages, body language, you name it. We are a very social civilization. Mackenzie Weth/Staff photographer However, one aspect of this so-called communication has always plagued me: the act of listening is slowly dying. When someone is talking,...

Demanding doctor’s notes is classist and childish

Listen up, professors. We all have respect for what you do. Teachers are some of the most dedicated, hardworking professionals in the world, and they deserve this respect and recognition. Aiming to educate and disseminate information to the younger generation is one of the most noble professions that exists. No one is denying that. Photo via Flickr It’s also no secret that there are good and bad professors, and I don’t just mean this...

We should get rid of the filibuster in today’s time

One of the biggest issues in America right now is how we deal with social issues, like LGBTQ rights and gun laws. Anyone can type a rant in 280 characters or less. It takes a different type of dedication to call legislators and force them to get a bill passed. I used to be uninformed when it came to politics because the jargon can be off-putting. Here we welcome the filibuster, an antiquated facet of our government that undoubtedly...

It’s perfectly okay to still be a kid sometimes

Today is Halloween, Seton Hall! You know what that means: chilly weather, costumes, parties, and endless candy. Halloween, when you were a kid, was the best: most of us couldn’t wait to run home from school, put on our costumes and meet up with all our friends to go trick-to-treating. There’s been a lot of backlash online recently about whether or not it’s appropriate for teenagers to go trick-or-treating. A lot of people have pushed...

I’m learning to care about politics, and you should too

I grew up in a household where my father would come home from work, turn on the television and flip back and forth between FOX News and CNN until he decided it was time to call it a night and go to sleep. Photo via Flickr Sometimes, if I had nothing better to do, I would sit down and watch the likes of Bill O’Reilly and Meghan Kelly with my father. As I watched them discuss topics well beyond my comprehension, one question constantly...

It’s important to indulge your parents if you can

This week’s Voice is for you, seniors. We’re over halfway through the first half of our senior year. For some of you, graduation may only be a short seven weeks away. File photo This whole week, Seton Hall is hosting photographers on campus to take our senior portraits, if we so choose. To sit for the photos is free, and they’re even being taken in what was many of our freshman dorm – Boland Hall. I myself didn’t really care one way...

Maybe you should cut something out of your schedule

In the last decade, awareness about the importance of taking care of your mental health has gotten more attention than it ever has. Between dozens of articles, countless self-help books and even celebrities beginning to come out and discuss their own internal struggles, the stigma that surrounds mental health is slowly, but surely, diminishing. Photo via Flickr Much of the literature and conversations about mental health take a good...

Your feminism isn’t feminism if it’s not intersectional

As of Sept. 27 of this year, 18 transgender women have died according to The New York Times. The violent deaths of these women and the lack of attention their deaths have received are a reflection of a society that does not care about transgender women of color. A feminist is defined as the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes. Feminism is about wanting equality, not about being superior in any way....

Halloween is not an excuse to be insensitive to others

Halloween is this month and I wanted to take the time to remind everyone to avoid cultural appropriation. I love Halloween as much as the next person, but it’s important to remember that someone else’s culture should be not be your go-to choice for a Halloween costume. Photo via Flickr According to the Cambridge dictionary, cultural appropriation is “the act of taking or using things from a culture that is not your own, especially...

Public officials have an obligation to speak with the press

Corrections: This editorial incorrectly conflated Booker’s 2020 campaign with his official U.S. Senate office. The Service Academy Day event that the reporter attended was hosted by Senator Booker’s official U.S. Senate office and was in no way affiliated with his 2020 campaign. Also, due to uncertainty in scheduling, Booker’s team did provide the reporter with an exclusive statement from Booker for The Setonian that answered the...
