"This break went by too fast," "I did not get anything accomplished over break," and "I wish that winter break was longer," are all common statements we heard as we reunited with friends and professors during our first week back.

The Setonian featured an article last issue that explained Seton Hall University's office of Community Development's policy on penalties for noise ordinance violations or any other police reports that take place at off-campus residences here in South Orange. The policy places students who live in non-school funded residences liable to fines and other punishments for being involved in reports from the South Orange Police Department. These students are subjected to appearing before the Community Standard Review Board upon request. The policy was implemented by the University under the pretense that Seton Hall University students represent the school and its principles even when they are not on campus. However, the reality is that this policy unjustly holds off campus students in a state of "double jeopardy," having to pay the school after paying the South Orange Police Department for the very same offense.
