Use your time during winter break positively

Winter break is fast approaching, bringing joy and excitement to both stu­dents and professors. After cramming for finals and participating in late night study sessions, the thought that less than two weeks are left in the semester sounds amazing.


Letter to the Editor: Off-Campus Discipline Policy Is Unjust

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.


Final exams should be taken when scheduled

As November comes to an end and December begins, excitement and anxiety build. Not only is Christmas just 26 days away, but final exams are starting in exactly 13 days. The countdown to the conclusion of the semester has begun - study ses­sions and all-nighters will soon begin.


Where was New Jersey's preparation for Hurricane Sandy?

It is evident that New Jersey was not prepared for Hurricane Sandy. It does not matter how many press conferences Governor Christie gives or how many times it is said that the utility companies are "working very hard" -- that all means nothing when faced with the reality of the situation.


Finally get to see Willard's own team

Kevin Willard finally has his team. For the first time in his three year stint at the Hall, every player that is on the roster was someone he brought into the program. To some this might not be a big deal, but it is time to see what Willard wants to do as the Pirates' coach. If you want to judge Willard as a coach, this is the year you can start, not worrying about the previ­ous two seasons.


Sandy's destruction unites the SHU community

As students and faculty wrap up their first week back in classes since Hurricane Sandy pounded the east coast with severe winds and heavy downpours, moods are solemn on cam­pus. Many students have experienced or heard of tragedies related to the storm.


The dread of trying to select the perfect Halloween costume

With a little less than week to go until Halloween, I cannot help but feel a slight twinge of stress in my stom­ach. Not only does Hallow­een signify a time where all professors seem to enjoy giv­ing a barrage of assignments, mixed with a few pieces of candy to trick our minds by way of our stomachs, but it is also my least favorite holiday.


Take precautions when celebrating Halloween

With Halloween coming next week, The Setonian staff urges all students who are looking to head off campus to enjoy the holi­day, to be smart in making decisions. You should always take the utmost precautions when leaving the gates, but this week even more should be done to protect yourself.
