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.


Hometown feelings can apply to SHU, too

Now that Fall Break has come and gone, and everyone has returned home from their extended weekends just to be sent right back in to the swing of college, I've realized that Seton Hall is beginning to hold a homely feeling to it.


Caf hour cutback limits choices for students

The arrival of Dunkin' Donuts has created a lot of buzz on campus, and students have flocked to the eatery in large numbers. More and more, we see students carrying Dunkin' Donuts cups and bags as they enter the library, their respective classes and even the cafeteria. Dunkin' Donuts is definitely the hot place to eat on campus right now.


Making time in your schedule to volunteer is rewarding

I have always wondered why people constantly complain about their community service require­ments. As a resident of Turrell Manor, I would ask friends who were sick of living on campus why they would not try moving into Turrell. The answer nine times out of 10 would be because they did not want to complete the 20-hour service requirement each semester.


Respect others' belongings and stop theft

Recently, there have been numerous reported thefts, especially in freshman dorms. Students have gotten their personal belongings stolen and there needs to be immediate action taken to curb this behavior.


Smiling ban for license photos should be seen positively

For most young people in New Jersey, turning 17 is a joyous time. When you pass your driv­ing test, you gain one of the most desired freedoms among teenag­ers. Although most of us are past 17 and already have a license, at some point, we are going to have to take another picture and if you live in New Jersey, chances are you will not be smiling.


First parking, now seating: Be courteous

If anyone has been in the commuter cafeteria around lunchtime, between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., you have seen just how crowded this space can get. The lines at Nathan's, the pizzeria and Leaf & Grains are extremely long. Even the line for Pirate Express extends around the coffee machines to the refrigerators. The time to get a meal can take what feels like forever. Then after retrieving your meal the effort is still not over; you have to search or almost stalk someone who is leaving to find a table.


Find enjoyment by getting involved on Seton Hall's campus

When I transferred to Seton Hall University last fall from a com­munity college in California, I was a little apprehensive. I knew I would miss my family and friends back home and our spur-of-the- moment trips to Las Vegas. Not only that, but I would be mov­ing to the other side of the United States, alone.


Parking battlefield distressing for first-time commuter

While it is my third year as a student at Seton Hall, it is my first being a commuter. Although I grew up about 30 minutes away, I am glad that I decided to get the college experience by living in a dorm my first two years. Now, however, I have entered into a whole new world at SHU - a sort of cult if you will - the commut­ers.
