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. College is full of new challenges, but it’s also full of opportunities. Get involved on campus and try new things. It can be scary to try new things, but it’s important...

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...

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...

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...

Treasurer Jovita Carranza? Okay, now we’re talking

Seniors! We did it! We complained so much that we actually got SHU to listen. We will officially have a commencement speaker in May: U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza. Alright, so we actually can’t take all the credit for this. Complaining only gets you so far – someone needs to be on the other end to listen and actually implement change. So we’re going to do something in this week’s ‘The Voice’ that we don’t typically do that often....

So, Seton Hall…Are we getting a commencement speaker?

Ah, yes. It’s that time of year again. The birds are (not really) chirping. The weather is (not really) getting warmer. And Seton Hall has (not) announced a commencement speaker for the 2018 graduation ceremony. Please note the sarcasm. Commencement speakers have been a touchy subject for seniors at SHU the last few years. While some may think that having a keynote presentation at graduation is unnecessary, a vast majority believe...

Try not to forget what this warm February weather entails

Feb. 21, five days after a snowstorm, the weather forecast is partly sunny with a high of 78 degrees. As cheerful as the atmosphere of the Seton Hall Green is when the weather is nice, with people lounging on blankets and playing Frisbee, the reason behind such mild weather calls for a great deal of concern. Our world is changing for the worst and the damage may be irreversible. Campus certainly is not the only place experiencing an...

Hey Seton Hall, where was our PirateAlert?

On Feb. 20, a fire erupted on the fourth floor of the parking deck, damaging two vehicles. Students who witnessed the smoke and flames billowing out of the structure were quick to spread the news on social media. Platforms like Twitter and Facebook were where many students discovered that there was a fire on campus. Some were alarmed after seeing photographs of the incident, worrying if their cars were affected by the fire. It would...

Don’t be mad at the Financial Aid Office, be mad at the DOE

It is no secret that students were concerned after Seton Hall’s Financial Aid Office announced a new attendance confirmation process for the 2018 spring semester. Gone are the days of students verifying their own attendance for their classes. That is now dependent on the professors, as is the distribution of students’ federal aid money. When it comes to financial aid, college students are going to react emotionally. It is...

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. Most Americans cheered the victory, supporting the athlete who captured another gold medal for the United States. One person most likely did not share that elation, however. Her name is Lena Zawaideh. On the surface, White seems like and all-around great guy. He has a charming personality and he’s an amazing...

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...
