Gents, this one is for you, so listen closely.
"One year later" has been a common theme this week in the New York/ New Jersey area.
By now, you've probably heard that Ben Affleck will play Batman in the upcoming Batman-Superman crossover film. And if you've heard about it, even if you're not much of a Dark Knight fan, you almost certainly have an opinion about it.
Modern technology drives us to be connected every minute of the day. Social media are a main vessel that people use to stay connected, and it seems as if we are all constantly refreshing our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook feeds to learn the latest about the world around us.
Two weeks ago, my boyfriend Jamy was picking me up from campus to drive us back to our hometown in South Jersey. It has been an ongoing ritual since I have started college, and we plan our schedules accordingly so we can leave campus the same night we finish our classes.
Let's face it: the pressure to be employed upon graduation is put on students from the time they choose their major.
On Sept. 15, Nina Davuluri was crowned 2013's Miss America and is considered the first Indian-American to win the pageant. Naturally, American's took to social media to share their opinions of her and what followed was disappointing. There were an outrageous number of people calling her a terrorist claiming that America had just crowned a member of Al-Qaeda.
I bet you didn't know that the cafeteria has "everything" bagels that have such an extensive array of ingredients they could out-do any bagel shop. Unfortunately these bagels actually have everything: including balls of human hair.
Most students are "literally dying" to get the newest iPhone. We spend much of our hard-earned money on ourselves, and some of us are blessed enough to have parents who provide us with an allowance or who can send money when we are lacking.
It is that time of the year when we realize the unavoidable parking headaches. We immediately hear students complaining, and rightly so, about the lack of parking spots on campus. Similarly, faculty members complain about it too. We begin to feel a sense of d?©j? vu, and thereby remembering having had a similar experience before. It is only reasonable to expect that since students and faculty members pay a fee to park on campus, they have a right to a parking spot on campus rather than having to park somewhere else. Yet the analogy between a student's right and a faculty member's right to a parking spot on campus is rather weak. Students have a right to a parking spot, but they are free to attend class or not, or to come late to class if they so desire. If they choose not to attend class or to come late to class, they are not in bridge of a legal contract.
Since 1856, Seton Hall University has established many traditions that unite our community. Some of the most notable traditions are Mass, Blue Day, convocation, avoiding stepping on the seal, the Christmas tree lighting, visiting the Pirate statue for good luck, and going to basketball games. Another longstanding tradition at SHU is the publication of The Setonian.
