Why are we talking about Amy Klobuchar?

Last week, Pete Buttigieg, the 38-year-old, gay, former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, shocked the nation when he won the Iowa caucus. Just this Tuesday, democratic-socialist candidate for president, Senator Bernie Sanders, won the second primary of this election cycle – New Hampshire.

Even in these divisive times, facts matter

Last night, President Trump delivered his third State of the Union speech to Congress. Photo via Flickr Trump discussed socialism, the U.S. health care system, the economy and more. He made a lot of pronouncements, which is not out of the ordinary for him. A lot of these, however, stretched the truth. This is also not out of the ordinary. Here are just a few of Trump’s claims, which news outlets such as USA Today and NPR gracefully...

What Kobe Bryant’s death can teach us about mental health

Happy Thursday, Pirates. I hope your weeks have been a little better than this past Sunday. As I’m sure most of you are aware, NBA superstar Kobe Bryant was killed over the weekend in a helicopter crash just outside of Los Angeles. The news shook much of the nation, with basketball fans and non-fans alike mourning the loss of not only an exemplary athlete but a devoted father, friend, and teammate.

I can’t believe we’re still talking about this

Welcome back, Pirates! Hope you all had both a restful and exciting winter break. The editors at The Setonian sure did, until the last week, when an article had to be written about a student posting a video to her personal Instagram account that ended with the use of a racial slur against Asian people. If you thought we were leaving racism in 2019 folks, looks like we aren’t. Photo via Wikimedia Commons We’re not complaining about...

You need to take advantage of your time off

It’s that time of the year, Pirates. Finals. (cue groaning). I know, finals are nobody’s favorite. The one good thing about the end of the semester though? Winter break. File photo After a long, grueling semester where us Seton Hall students no doubt grinded in every facet of life, we deserve some time off. The faculty do too. I wanted to take the last Voice to offer some advice to the students reading this from The Setonian: take...

Thanksgiving is for families of all kinds

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, Pirates. The Setonian won’t be publishing next Thursday because we’ll all be busy eating our weight in carbs, which is the true meaning of the holiday. So, we wanted to leave the Seton Hall community with a little message as we all go into our week off. Photo via Flickr The holidays are a hard time for a lot of people. While some have big, happy, loving families who take holiday planning very...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
