April Fools! From the Setonian

Tell-tale jokes and obscene levels of sarcasm sum up the first day of April. Riddled with warning titles of “April Fools’ Issues,” the on-and-off tradition of the Setonian falling on April 1 and occasionally the last issue in March was short-lived. 


E-Board Column: Just getting started

It was late in the summer before my senior year when Emma Thumann asked me to be the Setonian’s news copy editor. I had never done a lick of work for the paper. I am as much a journalist as I am a person who can do long division; that is to say, not at all. How I came into consideration for this position remains a mystery, but I type before you today as a proud member of the Setonian’s 100th editorial board.

Through the Lens

If you would have told me in my junior year of high school that I would be a part of the editorial board of one of the top, award-winning collegiate newspapers, I would have never believed you.

E-Board Column: Making the right choice

When I joined the Setonian as a news writer in Dec. 2022, I never imagined myself joining its editorial board, let alone its 100th editorial board. Mainly because I didn’t think I was cut out for it. 


Looking at past anniversary issues of the Setonian

Over a century, this newspaper has evolved alongside the students that have continued its legacy for this long. Today, you can access its content from almost anywhere in the world with just a few clicks and an internet connection. Yet, there was still a time when all of this content was locked behind a yearly subscription.

E-Board column: Maybe it is fate

I’ve never been someone who believes in fate, of higher powers or external forces and wonders influencing my every thought. But when I became editor-in-chief, I learned something about the paper that made me reconsider my stance. 


‘No paper, no school’: The 1964 Setonian ban

The University President at the time, Bishop John J. Dougherty, said the paper's staff “abused” their First Amendment rights, and that too often, articles published in the Setonian reflected an “unwholesome spirit of cynicism.”
