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.

Venturing outside of hometown makes you appreciate life

People often ask me why I, a Californian, wanted to go to school so far away from home or specifically, "Why Jersey?" with the most condescending, bewil­dered tone. Please keep in mind that the person asking the ques­tion, 95 percent of the time, was a native of New Jersey.

New York's soda ban: An attack on Americans' freedom

On September 13, the New York City Board of Health voted to ban the sale of sugary drinks served in containers larger than 16 ounces. Granted, the measure only covers establishments that are inspected by the health department, convenience stores will not be affected, and does not include all beverages, diet soda, alcohol, and other drinks are exempt.

Students: Do not assume alarms are drills

January 19, 2000 is a day that the Seton Hall community will never forget. As students slept, a senseless prank led to a deadly campus fire. It also claimed the lives of three fellow students and left several with serious injuries.

The importance of students supporting all athletic teams

In my three years at Seton Hall, it seems every year around this time that students stop showing up to the sporting events on cam­pus. The first few weeks are filled with students going to soccer games and other team sports but then when weather is not perfect, students become disinterested in attending these games. While in some ways I can understand this, it does not mean you should stop supporting your fellow students on the field.
